stanza 3, slokas 2-4

STANZA III.
2. The vibration sweeps along, touching with its swift wing the whole universe and the germ that dwelleth in darkness: the darkness that breathes over the slumbering waters of life. . .
3. Darkness radiates light, and light drops one solitary ray into the mother-deep. The ray shoots through the virgin egg the ray causes the eternal egg to thrill, and drop the non- eternal germ, which condenses into the world-egg.
4. Then the three fall into the four. The radiant essence becomes seven inside, seven outside. The luminous egg, which in itself is three, curdles and spreads in milk-white curds throughout the depths of mother, the root that grows in the depths of the ocean of life.

 

“Mr. Gardner:  And then I fancy there is a misprint here. You say 113 over 2. It has got 133 over 2.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Maybe there is a misprint. I am not answerable for that.

 
Mr. Keightley:  I think it is in a quotation from Ralston Skinner.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Ralston Skinner is a Mason and an extraordinary Kabalist.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  It is a mistake reproduced from a mistake of his.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Just as I have taken it, so it is. If I had paid attention to it, I would not have done it.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Then you take from the top of the great step to the ceiling {of the great Pyramid}.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  These you can all find from Smyth (Charles Piazzi Smyth, Astronomer). Ralston Skinner has elaborated it, but yet Ralston Skinner is perfectly mistaken in this, because he speaks of things as though really such a thing as the temple of Solomon ever existed, or the ark Noah, and so on. Why, it never existed in those measurements.

 
Mr. Gardner:  And that coffer in the King’s Chambers has never been removed.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I saw it there a few years ago. It is one with the floor as far as I could see. I am not sure, though.

 
Mr. Gardner:  And do you know whether that is anything occult, that niche in the Queen’s Chamber?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Everything has got its significance and everything relates to mysteries, to the mysteries of initiation. It was the great temple of the official initiation.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Smyth’s opinions are completely knocked on the head. They are not correct because of Petrie (English Egyptologist), who was rather a pyramidalist before he went out there, spent months most carefully verifying all Piazzi Smyth’s measures, and he knocked them on the head by proving all the measurements are wrong.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But Ralston Skinner does not take Smyth, and I have taken him out for it. For the last three years I have been in correspondence with him, and I said take care. It is so and so.

 
I gave him the correspondences as it was in the Chaldean and as it was really in the Indian teaching, and he took my suggestions and he found three or four mistakes, and I have got any quantity of his manuscripts in which he gives his ideas; but he is not sure of his facts, and he is carried on by an idea. Now he has changed his ideas in the new book that he wants me to write an introductory chapter to.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  You see, all these fellows are very apt to get crazy after a fixed idea.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  You cannot learn anything unless you are perfectly impartial and have not got a hobby. Otherwise you are sure to get mixed up and you will come and not bring your speculations to fit your facts but your facts to fit your speculations.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
