Coupling in Atik
The connection of these male and female aspects of Atik is literally like two powers joined together within one body.
This explains the concept of the "coupling" of Atik and his female aspect, since they are literally like one body.
The connection of these male and female aspects of Atik... We have already stated that coupling takes place wherever male and female are found, and it is necessary to understand what this means in the case of the male and female aspects of Atik, which are in one compound.
