6141. And the ground be not laid waste. That this signifies that the mind must be cultivated with the memory-knowledges of the church, is evident from the signification of the "ground," as being the receptacle of truth (see n. 6135-6137)-the receptacle itself being the mind, here the natural mind, because it is the ground of Egypt that is spoken of; and from the signification of "being laid waste," as being to be without truth that is visible; in the present case, without the memory-knowledges of the church, for by the "Egyptians" are signified the memory-knowledges of the church (n. 4749, 4964, 4966, 6004), which also are the truths of the natural. That the "land of Egypt" is the natural mind where memory-knowledges are, may be seen above (n. 5276, 5278, 5280, 5288, 5301); wherefore the "ground of Egypt" signifies this mind specifically. Therefore by "the ground not being laid waste" is signified that the mind must be cultivated with memory-knowledges.
