That this signifies the midst in the natural, is evident from the signification of "dwelling," as being to live (see n. 1293, 3384, 3613, 4451); and from the signification of the "land of Goshen," as being the midst or inmost. And because this land was in Egypt, and by "Egypt" is signified the memory-knowledge which is in the natural, it is the midst or the inmost in the natural. For Goshen was the best tract in the land of Egypt, and that which is best in the natural, where memory-knowledges are, is in the midst or in the center; for good itself is there as something like a sun, and gives light thence to the truths which are at the sides.
