stanza 1, slokas 1-2

STANZA I.
1. THE ETERNAL PARENT WRAPPED IN HER EVER INVISIBLE ROBES HAD SLUMBERED ONCE AGAIN FOR SEVEN ETERNITIES.
2. TIME WAS NOT, FOR IT LAY ASLEEP IN THE INFINITE BOSOM OF DURATION.

 

“Mr. Ashton Ellis:  It is its inventor, Dalton (English physicist), who called it atomic theory.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Well, let us proceed.

 
Mr. Keightley:  You speak of seven eternities. What are the seven eternities, and how can there be such a division in Pralaya when there is no one to be conscious of time?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The modern astronomer knows “the ordinances of heaven” still less than his ancient brother did.

 
Yet the fact, that if asked whether he could bring forth Mazzaroth (Job 38:32, interpreted as the constellations) in his season, or was with “him” who spread out the sky – the astronomer would reply in the negative – prevents him in no wise from speculating about the ages of the sun, moon, and geological times, when there was not a living man with or without consciousness on earth.

 
Why could not the ancients speculate or cognize backward and forwards as moderns do?”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
