Exodus 25:8 - Mystical opinion on the meaning and significance of the Tabernacle.

As much as hate to do it, I wanted to present a rather pseudo-scientific and somewhat mystical opinion on the significance and meaning of the Tabernacle. 

On the web site of Tony Badill, ( I found this image, which shows what Tabernacle (Mishkan), and later - the Solomon's Temple, represented as far as its spiritual and divine significance goes. Check it out:

To put this idea in words...
God created Man in His own image. Yet God commanded to build Mishkan so that His presence may dwell among the Children of Israel. Mishkan was a macrocosm and microcosm of the entire universe at the same time. This means that Mishkan was essentially reflecting an image of a man as well.
