That this signifies the external of heaven which is from the truths that are from external celestial good is evident from the signification of "curtains" as being the interior truths of faith (see n. 9595), here the exterior truths of faith, because they were for the Tent that was over the Habitation; from the signification of "goats' hair," of which these curtains were made, as being external celestial good (n. 9470); and from the signification of "the Tent over the Habitation" as being the external of heaven, for by "the Habitation" is signified heaven (n. 9594), and by "the Tent which covered it over," the external of the same. From this it is plain that by "the curtains of goats' hair for the Tent over the Habitation," are signified the truths which are from external celestial good, from which is the external of heaven. But how the case herein is cannot be known unless there is known what is the external and the internal of each heaven, and the influx of one heaven into the other; for the Lord flows into all the heavens both immediately and mediately (see n. 9223); mediately through the inmost heaven into the middle heaven, and through the internal of this latter into its external.
