“(22. The evolution of the three races continued. 23. The Second Race create the Third and perishes.)
22. THEN THE SECOND EVOLVED THE EGG-BORN, THE THIRD (RACE). THE SWEAT GREW, ITS DROPS GREW, AND THE DROPS BECAME HARD AND ROUND. THE SUN WARMED IT; THE MOON COOLED AND SHAPED IT; THE WIND FED IT UNTIL ITS RIPENESS. THE WHITE SWAN FROM THE STARRY VAULT (THE MOON) OVERSHADOWED THE BIG DROP. THE EGG OF THE FUTURE RACE, THE MAN-SWAN (HAMSA) OF THE LATER THIRD. FIRST MALE-FEMALE. THEN MAN AND WOMAN.
The First Race having created the Second by “budding”, as just explained, the Second Race gives birth to the Third – which itself is separated into three distinct divisions, consisting of men differently procreated.
It is in the Third Race that the separation of sexes occurred.
From being previously asexual, Humanity became distinctly hermaphrodite or bisexual;
and finally the man-bearing eggs began to give birth, gradually and almost imperceptibly in their evolutionary development, first, to beings in which one sex predominated over the other, and finally, to distinct men and women.”
