Descriptions of the Sixth Heaven are sketchy at best. It is said, though, that it is a realm of snow and fog, of lightning and hail. Here the primal forces of creation collide in a dramatic display of beauty and rage. It is so far removed from the material world that it defies material description.

Within this turmoil, is the angelic university. Here scribes and scholars seek to explore the glories of the Almighty’s creation. Some celestials spend their time cataloging and studying the stars. Others keep track of all the plants and animals in the material realm. There are also those scribes who set down the great history and lineage of the children of clay. Here the nine celestial tomes (copies of the originals) are scrutinized for any hint of revelation.
