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. Hall:  How could an iron door last 2,000 years?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Why could not an iron door last not only 2,000 years, but 20,000 years?

 
Mr. Gardner:  Would not it rust?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It would not rust. Perhaps there are several incredulous; I say it exists.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  His point is any iron door however thick would {have} rusted through in a thousand years.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It would not be destroyed.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Yes, eaten through, perfectly porous.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  My dear sir, I tell you it is protected, it is not a door of such iron as you would take from a smith. Just as they do with their mummies, if mummies have lasted, then I suppose an iron door could.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  What is interesting is that the others are so infernally greedy; if they knew anything about it they would go for the things that are there.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They do not know it. I spoke to Maspero (French Egyptologist), he is a fellow of the Theosophical Society. I passed the whole day with him in Cairo. I asked him about all the papers that he ever found. Maspero is the Director of the Boulaq Museum.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Which, by the by, is to be no more at Boulaq.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  He was there, then, and we sat there between the tombs and the old mummies, and he was telling me of some of the things he has discovered, and he said, “never could I give it to the world, because I would lose my situation.”  Because Marriette Bey (French Egyptologist) tried to do it, and he was not listened to, and the academy said some very disagreeable things about all kinds of secrets that are there.

 
He found a whole room, he told me – and this thing is known, by the by – and this room was full – Maspero discovered it – it was full of all kinds of retorts and alchemical things and those utensils that the alchemists used; and several parchments he found that he has read and deciphered; enough to see that they had all these alchemical secrets, and he found even some powders and things that he feels sure was the powder to make gold. He found it in this room which exists there to this day. I was going there, only Mrs. Oakley could not stop.

 
Mr. Gardner:  That is near Luxor.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  What is he going to do with all his collection when he dies?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  He is a very young man about 38 or so. He is no more than 38 years of age.

 
Mr. Gardner:  What post does he hold over there?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Director of the Musuem at Boulaq in Cairo. He is one of the most learned of the Egyptologists.

 
(Here the proceedings closed.)”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
