This chapter draws together the semiotic thread of the previous discussions by highlighting three realms of signification which have been of particular importance to the mystical authors discussed in this chapter. These are: 1) Realm of Mystic Colour; 2) Realm of al-Khadir/Elijah and the Mystic Journey; and 3) Realm of the Mytic Telos. All of these realms constitute the Anthropology of the Way.

Keywords:   signification, Mystic Colour, al-Khadir, Mystic Journey, Mytic Telos, mystical authors
