Finally the physical body will be transformed into a being composed of light, every cell will radiate the supramental glory. Not only those who have developed themselves sufficiently so that their vision has opened, but rather also the most routine people will be able to perceive these lights. It will be for everybody a clearly visible fact, a constant proof of the transformation which will convince even the strongest skeptics.

But that is the future which has begun but for whose total implementation time is still needed. In the meantime we find ourselves in a very remarkable situation, an extraordinary position which is without precedent. We are present at the birth of a new world, completely weak – weak not in its content, but rather in its outward manifestation – still not recognized, still not fulfilled, rejected by the majority; but it (this world) is here, here it is and would like to grow and is completely certain of the result. But the road to it is a new road which has never before been traveled; nobody has been on this path, nobody. It is the beginning. A universal beginning and so a completely unexpected and unpredictable adventure.”

Two years later on the 3rd of February 1958 The Mother described the supramental world and spoke respecting that from the creation of a transitional stage:
"The supramental world exists in a permanent way, and I am there permanently in a supramental body. I had proof of this to­day when between two and three o'clock in the afternoon my earthly consciousness went there and in full consciousness remained. I now know that for the two worlds to join in a constant and con­scious relationship what is missing is an intermediate zone be­tween the existing physical world and the supramental world as it exists. This zone has yet to be built,  

both in the individual con­sciousness and in the objective world, and it is being built. When formerly I used to speak of the new world that is being created, I was speaking of this intermediate zone. And similarly, when I am on 'this' side – that is, in the realm of the physical conscious­ness – and I see the supramental power, the supramental light and substance constantly permeating matter, I am seeing and par­ticipating in the construction of this zone.

I found myself upon an immense ship, which is the symbolic representation of the place where this work is being carried out. This ship, as big as a city, is thoroughly organized, and it had certainly already been functioning for quite some time, for its organization was fully developed. It is the place where people destined for the supramental life are being trained. These people (or at least a part of their being) had already undergone a supramental transformation because the ship itself and all that was aboard was neither material nor of finestuff, neither Vital nor Mind: it was a supramental substance.

This substance itself was of the most material supramental, the supramental substance nearest the physical world, the first to manifest. The light was a blend of red and gold, forming a uniform substance of luminous orange. Everything was like that – the light was like that, the peo­ple were like that – everything had this color, in varying shades, however, which enabled things to be distinguished from one another. The overall impression was of a shadowless world: there were shadings, but no shadows. The atmosphere was full of joy, calm, order; everything worked smoothly and silently. At the same time, I could see all the details of the education, the train­ing in all domains by which the people on board were being prepared.
