According to the teachings of the Ukrainian wandering philosopher of the 18th century, the world consists of three worlds: large (space) – nature; small (microcosm) – a person; symbolic – the Bible. In all nature, Spirit dominates matter. For a philosopher, God is an eternal beginning: elusive and invisible.

“Collect your thoughts within yourself and look for real blessings within yourself. Dig a well inside yourself for the water that will irrigate both your home and your neighbors’. (Grigory Skovoroda, 1722-1794).
