When humanity was exiled from the [[Garden of Eden]], [[God]] hid it away by compressing this alternate reality into an orb and hiding it somewhere on Earth. This orb eventually became known as the Occultum: a sacred artifact of divine origin that even predates the lore.
For centuries, it was housed in
a temple until it was looted by invading Mongol hordes. The Occultum would eventually be traded on the black market. In 2009, the Occultum came into the possession of the Jacobson family, but when Hyram Jacobson's son fell ill, he traded it to the [[faith healer]] / [[angel]] [[Sister Jo]] in exchange for her healing his son. Jo later gave the Occultum to the [[demon]] [[Ruby]] with the plan for them to ride out the Apocalypse inside. Ruby was subsequently killed after hiding it and had refused to tell Jo where to find it, knowing too well that she can't be trusted.
In 2020, [[Castiel]] manages to contact Ruby in [[the Empty]] and recover the Occultum, which she had hidden in a church guarded by [[hellhounds]]. When [[Jack]] consumes it, the Occultum absorbs him and sends him to the [[Garden of Eden]], where the serpent restores his [[soul]] before returning to the church. The Occultum is currently in the [[Men of Letters Bunker]].
* The concept of the Occoltum resembles the theory of [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_universe pocket universes],
which is a dimension that contains an individual universe with a finite amount of space.
