Meta. The intellectual, or mental reasoning, plane in man (Assyria) in its progress toward the spiritual, or, in its upliftment and union with true spiritual understanding (a step, level ongoing, straightforward, observation of laws, and so on). In Isaiah 19:23-25 we read that Egypt, Assyria, and Israel shall all worship the true God together and shall be a blessing in the midst of the earth. These three represent the trinity in man --body, soul or mental realm, and spirit --all unified in Truth and redeemed so as to express spiritually for the good of the entire man. Egypt refers to the body; Assyria to the mental realm or intellect, and Israel to the spirit.
