Physical Universe

Physical Universe

The universe is made of matter, energy, space and time. This is the universe where we find the things that make up the real world: trees, rocks, suns, mountains, atoms, chemical elements, trains, tables, chairs, etc. Spiritual beings (thetans) are not part of the physical universe, but they affect it. The agreements of this universe were established by beings. Those agreements form the universal frameworks we use to communicate and interact with each other and the things around us. The first letters of Matter, Energy, Space and Time form the word MEST, which is also used to refer to the physical universe and the things in it.
