anthropogenesis: beginnings of sentient life (stanza i)

“2.    SAID THE EARTH, “LORD OF THE SHINING FACE (THE SUN), MY HOUSE IS EMPTY…SEND THY SONS TO PEOPLE THIS WHEEL (EARTH).

 
THOU HAST SENT THY SEVEN SONS TO THE LORD OF WISDOM.

 
SEVEN TIMES DOTH HE SEE THEE NEARER TO HIMSELF; SEVEN TIMES MORE DOTH HE FEEL THEE.

 
THOU HAST FORBIDDEN THY SERVANTS, THE SMALL RINGS, TO CATCH THY LIGHT AND HEAT, THY GREAT BOUNTY TO INTERCEPT ON ITS PASSAGE.

 
SEND NOW TO THY SERVANT THE SAME!”

 
The “Lord of Wisdom” is Mercury or Budha.

 
The modern Commentary explains the words as a reference to a well-known astronomical fact, “that Mercury receives seven times more light and heat from the Sun than Earth, or even the beautiful Venus, which receives but twice that amount more than our insignificant Globe.”

 
The Sun, however, refuses to people the globe, as it is not ready to receive life as yet.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
