Definitions for "Emanation"
a radioactive gas (radon) produced in the decay of other radio-active elements. Specifically, thorium emanation (also thoron) is 220Rn (half life = 55 s) produced from the decay of thorium; radium emanation is 222Rn (half life = 3.8 d) produced from the decay of radium; actinium emanation is 219Rn (half life = 4 s). See table. [Rutherford 1 & 2, Soddy 1 & 2
An emanation is a feminine counterpart that has separated from an integrated masculine entity, as when Eve was created out of Adam and given a will and consciousness of her own. But this separation is itself a stage or an aspect of a fall, as it leads to conflict between the formerly undivided aspects. Many of Blake's female characters have emanated from male characters, and their relationships often resemble that between Adam and Eve. In Jerusalem, where the concept of emanations is developed most fully, both male and female emanations exist even within the integrated beings in eternity. See also spectre/spectrous, shadow, divided man.
the effect that any entity, system, and/or being has on its environment. The Absolute Reality, being infinite, generates cosmos-creating emanation, through which all manifest existence comes about. Of course, the Absolute is also all that is, so it only affects Itself; even so this still includes creation, the totality; everything. Gods and other hierarchies of beings produce emanations of entire autonomous beings, even worlds. Humans, as physically embodied beings, produce a constant stream of mental and astral thought-forms, an etheric aura, and physical molocules, skin flakes, and a weak electromagnetic field, as "emanation". A sub-atomic [particle produces its own "emanation" of virtual particles. More
