3. UNIVERSAL MIND WAS NOT, FOR THERE WERE NO AH-HI TO CONTAIN IT.
4. THE SEVEN WAYS TO BLISS WERE NOT. THE GREAT CAUSES OF MISERY WERE NOT, FOR THERE WAS NO ONE TO PRODUCE AND GET ENSNARED BY THEM.
“Dr. Williams: The term it seems to me, applies to the complex points of differentiation. Differentiation applies to the unit and the other term applies to the collection of units.
Mr. B. Keightley: Yes, that is the way to explain it.
Mme. Blavatsky: Now I must ask Mr. Kingsland to bring in his objections.
Mr. Kingsland: It is Dr. Williams’ turn.
Mme. Blavatsky: Do make it a little lively. Don’t go to sleep, all of you. This won’t be any illusion.
Dr. Williams: I noticed one thing as you passed along the explanation. I do not quite understand what the idea was at the back of it. I think the expression would lead to a misunderstanding of what the real facts are. That is with reference to the cerebellum and cerebrum as being, respectively, the organ of the higher mind and lower mind.
Mme. Blavatsky: I never said higher mind and lower mind. I said this one acted during the waking hours; for instance, with everyone of us now, what acts is the front part – I think you call it cerebrum.
Well, the other is active simply when this part sleeps and rests and becomes, so to say, inert – well, it is paralyzed. Then the dreams begin and the mind begins to live and to feel and to be conscious with that part of the brain that is astrologically.
I don’t know if it is so, scientifically, and I don’t presume to say, because there is no atom of science in me; I simply say that which the Occultists say and which the Kabalists say, and all kinds of hallucinated lunatics in general. That is what I tell you.”
