Earth is made up of four spheres that have a gradually lower density going from the inside to the outside: the sphere of rocks, or lithosphere (Greek “lithos”, stone), the sphere of water, or hydrosphere (Greek “hydros”, water); the sphere of air, or atmosphere (Greek “atmós”, steam); and the sphere of life, or biosphere (Greek “βίος”, meaning “that which lives”, and from Latin “sphaera” which derives from Greek “σϕαῖρα” meaning “ball of fire, sphere”), that is made up of all the living organisms that inhabit water, soil and air. Lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere interact with continuous exchange of matter and energy and together with the biosphere they form an entire and complete system that constitutes the light of life.
Light, in his apparent immateriality, establishes the corporeality of the universe. Light, in fact, coincides with the fifth element, ether, an eternal, evanescent and fluid matter that surrounds all the bodies which contingent consistence is given by the four traditional elements: earth, water, air and fire. So light is the foundation of the animate and inanimate physical being.
The term “light” (from Latin “lux”), shows the true nature of everything it lights up, everything that it touches becomes transparent and strips the true nature of everything it reaches.
Light, aside from being a very important physical phenomenon, is also very symbolic because, just like space and time, it determines our existence. In fact, much more, it represents and identifies itself with life itself.
“Even though light is much more fleeting and abstract than time and space, it can be measured and it can be seen. Since ancient times light has been associated with the divine because of its peculiar characteristics: light is what guarantees life and it’s what lights up our path here on Earth or towards the eternal salvation, it’s the synthesis of contraries being it contemporarily corporeal and incorporeal, physical and spiritual.
Lux is, thus, universal symbol of divinity, it’s the element that after the caos of original darkness passes through the Everything originating the Universe and encloses within its borders the darkness”. (Daniele Toesca)
