P. 7










The main thread in The Third Testament is love for all living beings - an universal defence 

of everyone and everything. This introduction to the work of Martinus has not been 


written by the author himself, but his own explanations of the 44 cosmic symbols can be 

found in The Third Testament/The Eternal World Picture volumes 1 – 4. This publication 


has been compiled as a support to exhibitions and other presentations of the work.



Life as a mystery





Cosmic unconsciousness – Symbol No. 5

themselves.

Intolerance – a symptom of ignorance





Intolerance – Symbol No. 3


Ignorance affects not just our experience 


of life and fate. It also makes it dificult 

to understand others’ ideas and concepts

when they diverge too greatly from our In

own.

Intolerance can easily arise between individuals, groups of people or nations (the 


two star igures) with conlict and war to follow (the world in lames).


To understand one’s fellow beings, one must irst be able to understand oneself. 


But this understanding – the solution to the mystery of life – requires an eternal 

world picture!
