Who doesn’t like and has never done psychological tests? There is probably no such person. They are better or worse, having more or less sense.

In the beginning was the Universal Soul, Pure Consciousness. From it came the original, sacred sound of Om. Its vibration created space (akasa). Under the influence of sound, the space began to swirl, creating air (vayu). The swirling air and space rubbed against each other, creating energy – fire (agni) was born.
