Neoplatonic philosophy holds that there is a single ultimate source from which all things descend.
Each stage of descent from the ultimate source contains less of the original perfection. The result is a series of graduated layers, each one more perfect than the one below and less perfect than the one above. God: The Ultimate Source For Christians, the ultimate source is God, represented here by the Latin term DEVS (or deus, the Romans having used the same letter for both U and V) surrounded by a shining light.
