Ancient Greek philosophy describes a three-stage cosmological process:

Proodos -- "Descent" of spirit into material, mortal existence.

Epistrophe -- The Fall of matter ends in a "turning point," an awakening.

Anodos -- "Ascent."

In 20th century cosmology, the three phases of the cycle of creation
are represented in the symbol of the "Arc" of the theory of process.
The Arc is the logo of Anodos Foundation.
