    ain soph aur

    Ain Soph Aur is the Hebrew/Kabbalistic unmanifest preceding the Tree of Life
    and its ten emanations/sephirot.

    Its literal meaning is "boundless (infinite) light"
    ain = nothing
    ain soph = boundless; limitless
    ain soph aur = boundless light

    playing with some words we also get:

    aur = gold
    soph-aur = sulphur
    soph-aur-ain = sovereign

    sometimes it is written "en soph aur":

    ens-offer/o-pher = bearer of the ens
    en suffer = in suffering
