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.

 

“Dr. Williams:  Sound begins at fifteen vibrations a second and runs through a very limited scale, so far as the ear is capable of conceiving it. The vibrations increase in intensity, and then comes the sense of heat. The different senses seem to take up one scale of vibration, of which all these different manifestations consist.

 
You go on with the sense of heat until you get a dull redness, and there you get light, and so you run through the whole gamut. It passes out of light, then call it the chemical rays that passes beyond color and produces chemical changes.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Isn’t there a difference in the prismatic colors? They are 7, and then there is something, I forget how they call it, a measurement.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  A wavelength.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I don’t know how they call it. There are only five of them seen, or three. Is it an instrument that was invented, that these seven colors reduces themselves to five, then to three and then one?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  No, they are three primary colors. These other seven are formed from combinations of those. First you get five –

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, I speak about some instrument.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Perhaps the spectroscope.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, not that. I read that they had invented an instrument which could give not only the radiation of colors but the reduction of colors, and that seven colors passed through some 77 shades until merged into one white, you know.

 
Mr. Hall:  Is that the helioscope? (an instrument used for observing the sun.)

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It is only a matter of combining again after they are once dispersed by means of the prism.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Oh, but it is the seven colors, where in their, so to say, gradation or shading, instead of being seven they become perhaps 77 times seven?

 
Dr. Williams:  I think it was some adaptation for showing the ratio, rather, of wavelength and color to rate vibration. That would be an almost indefinite number of vibrations, of course.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But they must be counted. I speak about that because it will always come back to the 3 and the 4 and the 7.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
