stanza 3, slokas 5-9

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:  But I think we might follow up that amber and the idea of electricity as a particular state of matter. It throws a great deal of light on the subject.

Mr. Kingsland:  Well, of course there is a molecular disturbance of the amber.

Mr. B. Keightley:  That is to say, of the molecules on the physical plane.

Mr. Kingsland:  But then, electricity to be manifested must be manifested outside the molecular substance of the amber.

Mr. B. Keightley:  That is a point that is rather curious to get at. We imagine we create the electricity by rubbing the molecules of a physical piece of silk against the molecules of a physical piece of amber; that is the way we look at it.

Mme. Blavatsky:  We simply give the conditions to the electricity, which is latent in it, to come out.

Mr. Kingsland:  Is there anything corresponding to an emanation from amber?

Mme. Blavatsky:  There is.

Mr. Kingsland:  Or is it a molecular disturbance causing a molecular disturbance in the aura of the amber?

Mme. Blavatsky:  No. I say it is latent in amber as it is latent everywhere, and giving it certain conditions, that which is within and which is latent in the amber will get into a fight with the electricity which is outside, and then there will be a disturbance produced. You simply change the conditions.

Mr. Kingsland:  Is the electricity intermolecular, and is it manifested in the same way that you could have a sponge which is perfectly molecular? Does the amber contain electricity in the same sense?

Mme. Blavatsky:  I am afraid to answer. I don’t understand the question. I cannot answer you. I cannot take it in well.”

H. P. Blavatsky
