“13. THEY (THE MOON-GODS) WENT, EACH ON HIS ALLOTTED LAND; SEVEN OF THEM, EACH ON HIS LOT. THE LORD OF THE FLAME REMAINED BEHIND. THEY WOULD NOT GO, THEY WOULD NOT CREATE.
The Secret teachings show the divine Progenitors creating men on seven portions of the “globe” each on his lot – i.e., each a different race of men externally and internally, and on different zones.
As the higher “Pitris or Dhyanis” had no hand in his physical creation, we find primeval man, issued from the bodies of his spiritually fireless progenitors, described as aeriform, devoid of compactness, and MINDLESS.
He had no middle principle to serve him as a medium between the highest and the lowest, the spiritual man and the physical brain, for he lacked Manas.
The Monads which incarnated in those empty SHELLS remained as unconscious as when separated from their previous incomplete forms and vehicles.
There is no potentiality for creation, or self-Consciousness, in a pure Spirit on this our plane, unless its too homogeneous, perfect, because divine, nature is, so to say, mixed with, and strengthened by, an essence already differentiated.
Between man and the animal – whose Monads (or Jivas) are fundamentally identical – there is the impassable abyss of Mentality and Self-consciousness.
What is human mind in its higher aspect, whence comes it, if it is not a portion of the essence – and, in some rare cases of incarnation, the very essence – of a higher Being; one from a higher and divine plane?
Can man – a god in the animal form – be the product of Material Nature by evolution alone, even as is the animal?
And what is it that creates such difference, unless man is an animal plus a living god within his physical shell?”
