cosmogenesis: the awakening of kosmos (stanza III)

“3.   DARKNESS” RADIATES LIGHT, AND LIGHT DROPS ONE SOLITARY RAY INTO THE WATERS, INTO THE MOTHER DEEP, THE RAY SHOOTS THROUGH THE VIRGIN EGG; THE RAY CAUSES THE ETERNAL EGG TO THRILL, AND DROP THE NON-ETERNAL (PERIODICAL) GERM, WHICH CONDENSES INTO THE WORLD EGG.

 
The solitary ray dropping into the mother deep may be taken as meaning Divine Thought or Intelligence, impregnating chaos. It brings before the mind’s eye the picture of Kosmos emerging from and in boundless space, a Universe as shoreless in magnitude if not as endless in its objective manifestation.

 
The simile of an egg also expresses the fact taught in Occultism that the primordial form of everything manifested, from atom to globe, from man to angel, is spheroidal, the sphere having been with all nations the emblem of eternity and infinity – a serpent swallowing its tail.

 
To realize the meaning, however, the sphere must be thought of as seen from its center.

 
The field of vision or of thought is like a sphere whose radii proceed form one’s self in every direction, and extend out into space, opening up boundless vistas all around.

 
4.   (THEN) THE THREE (TRIANGLE) FALL INTO THE FOUR (QUATERNARY). THE RADIANT ESSENCE BECOMES SEVEN INSIDE, SEVEN OUTSIDE. THE LUMINOUS EGG (HIRANYAGARBHA), WHICH IN ITSELF IS THREE (THE TRIPLE HYPOSTASES OF BRAHMA, OR VISHNU, THE THREE “AVASTHAS”), CURDLES AND SPREADS IN MILK-WHITE CURDS THROUGHOUT THE DEPTHS OF MOTHER, THE ROOT THAT GROWS IN THE OCEAN OF LIFE.

 
“The radiant essence curdled and spread throughout the depths” of Space. From an astronomical point of view this is easy of explanation; it is the “milky way”, the world-stuff, or primordial matter in its first form.

 
5.   THE ROOT REMAINS, THE LIGHT REMAINS, THE CURDS REMAIN, AND STILL OEAOHOO IS ONE.

 
OEAOHOO is rendered “Father-Mother of the Gods” in the Commentaries, or the SIX IN ONE, or the septenary root from which all proceeds.

 
In one sense, Oeaohoo is the “Rootless Root of All”; hence, one with Parabrahman; in another sense it is a name for the manifested ONE LIFE, the Eternal living Unity.

 
The “Light” is the same Omnipresent Spiritual Ray, which has entered and now fecundated the Divine Egg, and calls cosmic matter to begin its long series of differentiations.

 
The curds are the first differentiation, and probably refer also to that cosmic matter which is supposed to be the origin of the “Milky Way” – the matter we know.

 
This matter, radical and cool, becomes, at the first reawakening of cosmic motion, scattered through Space; appearing , when seen from the Earth, in clusters and lumps, like curds in thin milk.

 
These are the seeds of the future worlds, the “Star-stuff”.”
