Term: Qabalistic Worlds

DEFINITIONs:
1.  A fourfold division of the Tree of Life that separates the Tree into four levels of manifestation in accordance with the YHVH formula. The highest level is the most abstract and ethereal, while the lowest level is the most dense. They include Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah, and Assiah.

2.  Cabala speaks of the Four Worlds, from the most spiritual to the most material, which correspond to the consonants of Tetragrammaton. Yod - Olam Atziluth (World of Nobility) - Divine names Heh - Olam ha-Briah (World of Creation) - Archangels Vau - Olam ha-Yetzirah (World of Formation) - Angels Heh - Olam ha-Assiah (Material World) - Heavenly Spheres

Some attempt to divide the Tree of Life into four parts that correspond to the Four Worlds (Kether, Chokmah and Binah, Chesed through Yesod, and Malkuth). Others say that a complete Tree exists in each World. These two approaches are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
