Some things in the world are superior:
sun, fire, light
"Let us make note of the fact that the body of man is constructed like the world itself. As the sky is pre-eminent over air, earth and sea, which serve as members of the world, so we observe that the head has a position above the other members of our body."
Ambrose, Hexameron, 9.55; Cf. Plotinus, Second Ennead, 1,3,
