stanza 2, slokas 3-4

STANZA II.
3. The hour had not yet struck; the ray had not yet flashed into the Germ; the Matripadma had not yet swollen.
4. Her heart had not yet opened for the one ray to enter, thence to fall, as three into four, into the lap of Maya.

 
“Mr. B. Keightley:  We shall see as we go on. You get a plane square, then the moment you add another point, a fifth point outside that, you get your pyramid or square-based pyramid.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  We want to know how you get your square, first.

 
Mr. ______:   How do you get from the triangle to the square?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I can’t show it to you, but in mathematics it exists. It is not on this plane of matter that you can square the circle. We know what it means to square the circle, but the men who spent years trying to square the circle are shut up in lunatic asylums. On this plane you cannot think of squaring the circle, but we can. It is quite a different thing.

 
The President:  Eliphas Levi takes it in this way: he takes the first eternal as representing the triangle, and the synthesis of the three forming a fourth point; but I don’t see myself how that brings one any nearer to matter. I think he puts it that way in his works. Does he not?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The point becomes the line two, the line becomes a plane superficies three, then you have the triangle or the first plane figure.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  And the superficies or triangle is converted into a solid of four, or the tetrad, by the point being placed over it.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Then that is the triangular pyramid.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But then it becomes again another thing to make the cube out of the square. It will become a triangular pyramid, but it will come on the base of the square.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
