The basic symbolism of Noah’s Ark is the belief that the essence of the physical and spiritual life can be extracted and contained within a minute seed until such time as a rebirth created the conditions necessary for the re-emergence of these essence into external life. When comparing the Rainbow and the Ark, there is great symbolic symbolism. The Ark floats on the lower ocean. The Rainbow is in the realm of the upper waters, and is a sign of restoration of the order which is preserved below in the Ark.
