[1 of 1] Swedenborg (1688-1772, Sweden): primary subject "Creation, is good conjoined with truth" (search under Cosmology/Cosmology, Laws)": source "Divine Providence": detail "Section 5"
Divine love and wisdom, which are one in the Lord and proceed as one from him, are in some image in each created thing. God the Creator produced the sun of the spiritual world from himself, and all things of the universe through that sun. That sun, which is from him and in which he is, is therefore not only the first but the sole substance from which are all things. As this is the one substance, it is in everything made, but with endless variety in accord with uses.
 In the Lord, then, are divine love and wisdom, and in the sun from him divine fire and radiance, and from the sun spiritual heat and light; and in each instance the two make one. It follows that this oneness is in every created thing. All things in the world are referable, therefore, to good and truth, in fact to the conjunction of them. Or, what is the same, they are referable to love and wisdom and to the union of these; for good is of love and truth of wisdom, love calling all its own, "good," and wisdom calling all its own, "truth." And there is a conjunction of these in each created thing.
