10036. And its skin. That this signifies falsity in ultimates, is evident from the signification of the "skin," or "hide," as being truth in ultimates, and in the opposite sense falsity there. This signification of the "skin" or "hide" is from correspondence, for those who in the Grand Man or heaven bear relation to the skin, are those who are in the truths of faith, and not so much in the corresponding good, and who are on the threshold of heaven (see n. 5552-5559); hence by "skin" or "hide" in the abstract sense is signified truth in ultimates (n. 3540, 8980). That here by the "skin" is signified falsity in ultimates, is because by the "flesh" is signified the evil of love (of which just above, n. 10035); and when "flesh" signifies the evil of love, its "skin" signifies the falsity of faith thence derived.
