cosmogenesis: fohat…the child of the septenary hierarchies (stanza v)

“2.    (CONT)…When the “Divine Sons” breaks forth, then Fohat becomes the propelling force, the active Power which causes the ONE to become the Two and THREE – on the Cosmic plane of manifestation.

The triple One differentiates into the many, and then Fohat is transformed into that force which brings together the elemental atoms and makes them aggregate and combine.

Fohat, then, is the personified electric vital power, the transcendental binding Unity of all Cosmic Energies, on the unseen as on the manifested planes, the action of which resembles – on an immense scale – that of a living Force created by WILL, in those phenomena where the seemingly subjective acts on the seemingly objective and propels it to action.

Fohat is not only the living Symbol and Container of that Force, but is looked upon by the Occultists as an Entity – the forces he acts upon being cosmic, human and terrestrial, and exercising their influence on all those planes respectively.

He is, metaphysically, the objectivized thought of the gods; the “Word made flesh”, on a lower scale, and the messenger of Cosmic and human ideations: the active force in Universal Life.

In his secondary aspect, Fohat is the Solar Energy, the electric vital fluid, and the preserving fourth principle, the animal Soul of Nature, so to say, or – Electricity.

The “three and seven” strides refer to the Seven spheres inhabited by man, of the esoteric Doctrine, as well as to the Seven regions of the Earth.

(The three strides relate metaphysically to the descent of Spirit into matter, of the Logos falling as a ray into Spirit, then into the Soul, and finally into the human physical form of man, in which it becomes LIFE.)”


H. P. Blavatsky
