“(5. After enormous periods the Earth creates monsters. 6. The “Creators” are displeased. 7. They dry the Earth. 8. The forms are destroyed by them. 9. The first great tides. 10. The beginning of incrustation.)
5. THE WHEELS WHIRLED FOR THIRTY CRORES (OF YEARS, OR 300,000,000).
IT CONSTRUCTED RUPAS (FORMS). SOFT STONES THAT HARDENED (MINERALS); HARD PLANTS THAT SOFTENED (VEGETATION).
VISIBLE FROM INVISIBLE, INSECTS AND SMALL LIVES (SARISRIPA, SVAPADA).
SHE (THE EARTH) SHOOK THEM OFF HER BACK, WHENEVER THEY OVERRAN THE MOTHER.
AFTER THIRTY CRORES OF YEARS, SHE TURNED ROUND. SHE LAY ON HER BACK, ON HER SIDE….SHE WOULD CALL NO SONS OF HEAVEN, SHE WOULD ASK NO SONS OF WISDOM.
SHE CREATED FROM HER OWN BOSOM.
SHE EVOLVED WATERMEN, TERRIBLE AND BAD.
This relates to an inclination of the axis – of which there were several – to a consequent deluge and chaos on Earth (having, however, no reference to primeval chaos), in which monsters, half-human, half-animal, were generated.
“The watermen terrible and bad”, who were the production of physical nature alone, a result of the “evolutionary impulse” and the first attempt to create man the “crown”, and the aim and goal of all animal life on Earth – are shown to be failures in our stanzas.”
H. P. Blavatsky
