The four elements are the name given to the quartet of earth, water, air, and fire, which are accepted as the four states of matter in occultism and many traditions. Although this concept is found in many traditions, the concept is discussed in more detail in Indian, Hebrew, Celtic, Dogon traditions, and Ismail esotericism.
The qualities of the four elements compared to each other are explained as follows:
Fire is one of the two active, active, and masculine elements among the four elements, and it illuminates and warms the other three elements. Of the four elements, it is the “undeniable”. Sometimes it is identified with the symbol of light.
Air is considered masculine and active. It is the least material and imperceptible compared to the soil and water. It is more permeable than water in passing light. This feature, namely transparent and luminous, means that it creates the wording medium. In beliefs that heaven is represented by the Sky, it is considered a symbol of mediation between the spiritual Sky and the earth. In some beliefs, it is regarded as the symbol of the heavenly realm, since the most subtle form of matter is even invisible.
Water has a passive and feminine nature. As is known, water has the property of taking the shape of the environment in which it is located. In some beliefs, the water symbol, which is the representative of the liquid form of the substance, is used in terms of material ore, which is the first form of the substance, meaning the first substance, in some beliefs, in the sense of subtle form called matter, and in some beliefs in the sense of influence.
Soil is passive and feminine and is the densest, solid, and stable of the four elements. As it is known, the main element that people acquire nutritional sources is soil. In the belief of the creation of many beliefs, the substance used in the creation of the human body passes as soil, and when people die, their bodies become integrated with the soil. For these reasons, the soil symbol of fertility and maternity in the beliefs symbolizes the soil, the material in physical beliefs, the physical body, the material realm called the realm of manifestation.
