“2. THE SWIFT AND RADIANT ONE PRODUCES THE SEVEN LAYA CENTERS, AGAINST WHICH NONE WILL PREVAIL TO THE GREAT DAY “BE WITH US” – AND SEATS THE UNIVERSE ON THE ETERNAL FOUNDATIONS, SURROUNDING HSIEN-T’IEN WITH THE ELEMENTARY GERMS.
The seven Laya centers are the seven Zero points, using the term Zero in the same sense that chemists do, to indicate a point at which, in Esotericism, the scale of reckoning of differentiation begins.
From the Centers begins the differentiation of the elements which enter into the constitution of our Solar System.
Thus, while science speaks of its evolution through brute matter, blind force, and senseless motion, the Occultists point to intelligent LAW and sentient LIFE, and that Fohat is the guiding Spirit of all this.
Yet he is no personal god at all, but the emanation of those other Powers behind him whom the Christians call the “Messengers” of their God (who is in reality only the Elohim, or rather one of the Seven Creators called Elohim), and we, the “Messenger of the primordial Sons of Life and Light.”
The “Elementary Germs” with which he fills Hsien-t’ien (the “Universe”) from T’ien-hsin (the “Heaven of Mind”, literally, or that which is absolute) are the Atoms of Science and the Monads of Liebnitz.”
H. P. Blavatsky
