Benjamin Creme's painting, "New World," was begun in 1964 and reworked in 1984. It represents the process of planetary formation from cosmic fire: huge clouds of fiery gases are thrown off by the sun and into orbit. These gases gradually coalesce into denser fiery substance and, cooling, form the physical-plane body of expression for a planetary Logos or "Heavenly Man." (Began in 1964, reworked in 1984)
