Ridge: an energy that creates a long, multi-jointed back or spine. Ridges can manifest themselves in a man, a beast or the earth, none of which have shape or height without them. Although man, beast or the earth might lift a ridge on rising, the ridge holds this rising energy from reversing and falling away. It is both earth and sky. The shape that gives them this capability is called rugged when tightly and ragged when loosely jointed. The ridge below is rugged.
