(Shyam Sundar:) “What is the difference between an emanation and a formation?

(Mother:) These words to not apply to the physical world as it is at present.
         The explanation is only an approximation. However, one could say that the emanation is made of the very substance of the emanator, whereas the formation is made with a substance external to the formator.
         To make a comparison, one could say that the emanation is a like a child made of the substance of its mother and the formation is like a living statue made with a material external to the sculptor.
         But naturally this is only a very approximate explanation.”[1]
