Translations:Purity and Astrea's retreat/6/en
Six flights of stairs, three on either side of this great round hall, lead to other flame rooms and classrooms, one of which emits an intense, sapphire-blue radiance. Descending into this room, we stand at the entrance and observe the magnificent flame of purity in powerful concentration. To the left in midair is the whirling focus of Astrea’s circle of blue flame, with the blue-flame sword, the pillar of fire, in the center. The velocity of the flame that forms the circle is so intense that it appears as if it is not moving at all; but we observe from the sparks of blue fire that are thrown off through the centripetal and centrifugal action of the whirling fire that it is indeed moving at great speed and with enough concentrated power of the will of God to cut through the most dense of any humanly misqualified energy.
