In the Christian speculations this is the Logos, the Word, the Son who is the perfect 'blueprint',
'model', Exemplar for all else. God 'sees' all that exists and will exist and could possibly exist already
as existing in the Logos/ Son/ Exemplar. Things exist in the mind of God and are brought to be in the
Exemplar through a series of emanations (a going out) and already possess every detail that can be
known about them in themselves and outside themselves by others. But this is already known to God
who in these emanations, gives 'things' their reality in the sensory world, or the world of reality ad
extra God (outside God) because they already exist in the intelligible world (the world of Ideas) in
every detail of their own exemplar.
