Actually, I have visualized the seven planes as circular and tree-
like. Imagine if you will, a series of seven circular discs, one
bigger than the next disc. The smallest disc is at the bottom and
the biggest disc is at the top. The smallest disc would represent
the Physical Cosmic Plane and the biggest disc would represent the
Logoic Cosmic Plane. The whole depiction looks like an inverted tree
or more accurately, an inverted pyramid.
Another depiction: Given cosmology's theories of hyperspace and
wormholes, there is another possibility (and again, this is just a
theory) that between the seven circular planes (a.k.a. parallel
universes) exist hyperspace. What connects one circular plane with
another is a wormhole or a spatial chakra. And what you have, as a
result, looks a lot like Jacob's ladder.
