“11. IT (THE WEB) EXPANDS WHEN THE BREATH OF FIRE (THE FATHER) IS UPON IT; IT CONTRACTS WHEN THE BREATH OF THE MOTHER (THE ROOT OF MATTER) TOUCHES IT.
THEN THE SONS (THE ELEMENTS WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE POWERS, OR INTELLIGENCES) DISSOCIATE AND SCATTER, TO RETURN INTO THEIR MOTHER’S BOSOM AT THE END OF THE “GREAT DAY” AND RE-BECOME ONE WITH HER.
WHEN IT (THE WEB) IS COOLING, IT BECOMES RADIANT, ITS SONS EXPAND AND CONTRACT THROUGH THEIR OWN SELVES AND HEARTS; THEY EMBRACE INFINITUDE.
The expanding and contracting of the Web – i.e., the world-stuff or atoms – expresses here the pulsatory movement; for it is the regular contraction and expansion of the infinite and shoreless Ocean of that which we may call the noumenon of matter emanated by Svabhavat, which causes the universal vibration of atoms.
12. THEN SVABHAVAT SENDS FOHAT TO HARDEN THE ATOMS. EACH (OF THESE) IS A PART OF THE WEB (UNIVERSE).
REFLECTING THE “SELF-EXISTENT LORD” (PRIMEVAL LIGHT) LIKE A MIRROR, EACH BECOMES IN TURN A WORLD…
It is through Fohat that the ideas of the Universal Mind are impressed upon matter.
Some faint idea of the nature of Fohat may be gathered from the appellation “Cosmic Electricity” sometimes applied to it;
but to the commonly known properties of electricity must, in this case, be added others, including intelligence.”
H. P. Blavatsky
