stanza 3, slokas 5-9

STANZA III.
5. The root remains, the light remains, the curds remain, and still Oeaohoo is one.
6. The root of life was in every drop of the ocean of immortality, and the ocean was radiant light, which was fire, and heat, and motion. Darkness vanished and was no more ; it disappeared in its own essence, the body of fire and water, or father and mother.
7. Behold, oh Lanoo! The radiant child of the two, the unparalleled refulgent glory: Bright Space Son of Dark Space, which emerges from the depths of the great dark waters. It is Oeaohoo the younger, the * * * He shines forth as the son; he is the blazing Divine Dragon of Wisdom ; the One is Four, and Four takes to itself Three, and the Union produces the Sapta, in whom are the seven which become the Tridasa (or the hosts and the multitudes). Behold him lifting the veil and unfurling it from east to west. He shuts out the above, and leaves the below to be seen as the great illusion. He marks the places for the shining ones, and turns the upper into a shoreless sea of fire, and the one manifested into the great waters.
8. Where was the germ and where was now darkness? Where is the spirit of the flame that burns in thy lamp, oh Lanoo? The germ is that, and that is light, the white brilliant son of the dark hidden father.
9. Light is cold flame, and flame is fire, and fire produces heat, which yields water: the water of life in the great mother.

 
“Mr. B. Keightley:  Now that question of weight suggests a thing that would be very interesting. It is said over and over again in the [  ] theosophy that the scientific theory of gravity is untrue. Well now what do you mean, what does an occultist mean when he speaks of weight? Does he mean attraction?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Well I don’t know, weight is weight, how can I explain it otherwise?

 
The President:  Does weight exist without gravity?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Well it is gravity in the occult sense; it is not gravity as you call it on the Newtonian principle. We can explain it and do simply as attraction and repulsion.

 
This weight is all because it throws out, it goes in circuit and absorbs again and it all proceeds to create all the universe and everything that is below. It always is this weight which you cannot say is above or below or on the right side or the left.

 
This weight is something within but not within as to size, but within as to perception, differentiation and everything.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It is the same thing as we had previously, the expanding from within, without.

 
The President:  The real point seems to be that if gravity is simply attraction and repulsion, that it must be the first of the attributes, so to say, of any differentiation whatever. As soon as you have two things, they must be pulverized.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Surely.

 
The President:  And therefore they may {be} pulverized in darkness.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  How can you explain otherwise the comets that go against the law of gravitation, how can you? It has been seen hundreds of times, comets in most cases go with their tails right against gravitation.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  They go and flap their tails in the face of the sun, in fact.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is an insult to the sun and the sun sits quiet.

 
Mr. _______:  I though those tails were a certain gas.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Even gases have some weight. I know it from the blood poisoning. Well, what is the fourth question?”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
