After the Waters Had Receded
Ether's vision of the waters receding is a very old one. It's a vision of creation that underlies the "Song of the Sea," which we have repurposed as a tale of the Lord defeating the Egyptians in Exodus 15. The vision is a temple one: read Exodus 15 and notice the temple / holy mountain imagery in verses 13 and 18.
