In Peter D. Ouspensky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P._D._Ouspensky) book In Search of the Miraculous he writes about the Seven (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=6) Cosmoses:

Protocosmos -- the first cosmos (the Absolute, "1")
Ayocosmos or Megalocosmos -- the holy cosmos (all worlds, "3")
Macrocosmos -- the large cosmos (Milky Way, "6")
Deuterocosmos -- the second cosmos (the Sun, the solar system, "12")
Mesocosmos -- the middle cosmos (all planets, "24")
Tritocosmos -- the third cosmos (man, "48")
Microcosmos -- the small cosmos (atom) - source (http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_ouspensky01.htm)

If you want to go deep, always go Russian!

:) My friend that I share most of my alchemy with is russian.
I'd have to agree with you.

Some may find this relative:
The universe of vibrations/light is divided into seven:
Hertzian (the lowest - the material plane), infrared, visible light, UV, X-ray, gamma and cosmic (the highest - the source).

Another division of the universe into seven is in the Kabbala.
There are ten sephiroth, but distributed amongst seven levels.
(If you don't include da'ath).

These cosmoses and divisions are dimensions, or could be... in ancient times they used other kinds of terminology.

Is is not that they were stupid and named stars after animals instead of a more logical number system etc. Perhaps our scientific minds have lost some knowledge. Nothing is black and white, so why part with the spiritual from the practical at all?

After all 3 is 1!

Tree of Life is not accurate, Nature do not behave like that.
