“9. MOTHER-WATER, THE GREAT SEA, WEPT. SHE AROSE, SHE DISAPPEARED IN THE MOON, WHICH HAD LIFTED HER, WHICH HAD GIVEN HER BIRTH.
The Moon is far older than the Earth; and it is the latter which owes its being to the former, however astronomy and geology may explain the fact.
Hence, the tides and the attraction to the Moon, as shown by the liquid portion of the Globe ever striving to raise itself toward its parent.
10. WHEN THEY (THE RUPAS) WERE DESTROYED, MOTHER-EARTH REMAINED BARE. SHE ASKED TO BE DRIED.
The time for its incrustation had arrived. The waters had separated and the process was started. It was the beginning of a new life.”
H. P. Blavatsky
