10107. And the bread that is in the basket. That this signifies the appropriation of celestial good from the Lord, is evident from the signification of "eating," here bread, as being appropriation (as just above, n. 10106); from the signification of "bread," as being the good of love and charity (n. 2165, 2177, 3464, 3478, 3735, 3813, 4217, 4735, 4976, 5915, 6118, 9323, 9545); and from the signification of a "basket," as being the external sensuous (n. 9996). From this it is plain that by "eating the bread that was in the basket" is signified the appropriation of good from the Lord in externals. The breads which were in the basket were unleavened breads, unleavened cakes, and unleavened wafers, and by these are signified goods purified, both internal and external (n. 9992-9994). When therefore "bread in the basket" is spoken of, there are signified all these goods in the external sensuous, and the external sensuous is the ultimate of man's life, containing all the interior things together in itself. (That the external sensuous is the ultimate of man's life, see n. 5077, 5081, 5094, 5125, 5128, 5767, 6183, 6311, 6313, 6318, 6564, 7645, 9212, 9216, 9730, 9996; and that, being the ultimate, it contains all the interior things, see n. 6451, 6465, 9216, 9828, 9836, 10044.)
