“(18. The Sons of Yoga. 19. The Sexless Second Race. 20. The Sons of the Sons of Twilight. 21. The “Shadow”, or Astral Man, retires within, and man develops a physical body.)
18. THE FIRST RACE WERE THE SONS OF YOGA. THEIR SONS, THE CHILDREN OF THE YELLOW FATHER AND THE WHITE MOTHER.
The first race of men were, then, simply the images, the astral doubles, of their Fathers, who were the pioneers, or the most progressed Entities from a preceding though lower sphere, the shell of which is now our Moon.
Evolutionary law compelled the lunar “Fathers” to pass, in their monadic condition, through all the forms of life and being on this globe;
but at the end of the Third Round, they were already human in their divine nature, and were thus called upon to become the creators of the forms destined to fashion the tabernacles of the less progressed Monads, whose turn it was to incarnate.
These “Forms” are called “Sons of Yoga”, because Yoga is the supreme condition of the passive infinity deity.
19. THE SECOND RACE (WAS) THE PRODUCT BY BUDDING AND EXPANSION; THE ASEXUAL (FORM) FROM THE SEXLESS (SHADOW). THUS WAS, O LANOO, THE SECOND RACE PRODUCED.
These two modes of procreation are the most difficult to comprehend, especially for the Western mind.
How could these Chhayas reproduce themselves otherwise; viz., procreate the Second Race, since they were ethereal, asexual, and even devoid, as yet, of the vehicle of desire, or Kama-rupa, which evolved only in the Third Race?
They evolved the Second Race unconsciously, as do some plants.”
