stanza 1, slokas 5-8

STANZA I.

5. DARKNESS ALONE FILLED THE BOUNDLESS ALL, FOR FATHER, MOTHER AND SON WERE ONCE MORE ONE, AND THE SON HAD NOT AWAKENED YET FOR THE NEW WHEEL, AND HIS PILGRIMAGE THEREON.

6. THE SEVEN SUBLIME LORDS AND THE SEVEN TRUTHS HAD CEASED TO BE, AND THE UNIVERSE, THE SON OF NECESSITY, WAS IMMERSED IN PARANISHPANNA, TO BE OUTBREATHED BY THAT WHICH IS AND YET IS NOT. NAUGHT WAS.
7. THE CAUSES OF EXISTENCE HAD BEEN DONE AWAY WITH; THE VISIBLE THAT WAS, AND THE INVISIBLE THAT IS, RESTED IN ETERNAL NON-BEING — THE ONE BEING.
8. ALONE THE ONE FORM OF EXISTENCE STRETCHED BOUNDLESS, INFINITE, CAUSELESS, IN DREAMLESS SLEEP; AND LIFE PULSATED UNCONSCIOUS IN UNIVERSAL SPACE, THROUGHOUT THAT ALL-PRESENCE WHICH IS SENSED BY THE OPENED EYE OF THE DANGMA.

 

“Mr. B. Keightley:  It is a very curious thing, that transference of sense localities in parts of the body. For instance, as a rule, with the mesmeric clairvoyant, the sense of sight is transferred to the pit of the stomach and it won’t operate in any other part of the body. Though sometimes it is at the back of the head.

 
Colonel Chowne:  There is some center of nerves there.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  You will learn that.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Sometimes it works through the forehead.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Generally the pit of the stomach or the back of the head.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They never tried it here, at the back of the head (pointing).

 
A Lady:  They tried it through the feet.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  I never heard of seeing through the feet, though certainly the sense of sight is the one they have experimented with the most.

 
Colonel Chowne:  You mean a blind man is supposed to read colors. I do not see how he distinguishes red from blue.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The colors, you see, he can know. For instance, a deaf man can be looking at the sounds; he can see because it gives him a kind of sound. Of course he does not hear it as sound, but it is transferred to his mind as a something that is sound, really.

 

Though it cannot be expressed. You could not understand it of course.

 
Mr. Hall:  Deaf and dumb people very often like to put their hands on a piano while it being played, so that the vibration may be communicated to their brains.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Then there is the well-known case of a blind man, who always associated sound with colors. He had a conception, red, which he associated with brass instruments, the trumpet particularly. Red always suggested to his mind the trumpet.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is extremely interesting, this association of sounds and colors by vibration, and then it is a very scientific thing, as I think somebody speaks about it.

 
Now, for instance, the sounds have got so many modulations and vibrations. And light is just the same way.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
