The Star Tetrahedron has also been known since ancient times as the ‘Mer-Ka-Ba’ (Merkaba), the divine light vehicle (light body) allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light (wheels within wheels; the two tetrahedrons rotating in opposite directions) which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another, as in the process of ‘ascension’.
