When God said, let light be, the sacrificial lamb was slain from the foundation of the world. That's why it went dark at the end of the first day, the second occurrence of darkness that we have to account for called night.
How do we know that the next life is constructed from a series of elements which we have no earthly counterparts for? It's not possible to make gold pure enough that it becomes transparent like glass.
The Universe is Made From the Components of Water
Axiom I is "The Universe is Made From the Components of Water." We can deduce Principle I from the following physical evidence, empirical observations or established theories which are part of Axiom I.
The Big Bang Nucleosynthesis
The Bible accounts for the Big Bang nucleosynthesis. Popular science (SciPop) grudgingly arrived at this conclusion but it has no cause for it or source for the material used. The Bible gives us both.
One of a row, a letter (of the alphabet): στοιχεῖα – stoixeion
Stoixeíon is translated as rudiments, principles or elements. It's the origin of the word stoichiometry, a term with specific meaning in physics and chemistry. The periodic table of elements is an example of stoichiometry.
Water into Wine
The first act that God performed in the Genesis account of creation was nucleosynthesis. It would appear that the first recorded public miracle of Jesus was also nucleosynthesis, when Jesus turned water in to wine.
The streets of heaven are paved with gold so pure that it's transparent. It would seem that this isn't the same kind of gold that we have on Earth, but another element that's not part of the known periodic table.
