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.

 

 
“The President:  It seems if you use the phrase, kama-rupa, that would be the best. I should consider that would be the same thing as saying it was intermolecular.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  But, you see, you have got your sponge and water – both matter on the same plane – but your electricity and your amber are matter on three different planes apart.

 
That is to say, if you take the physical molecules of your amber as the first or lowest, the molecules of your electricity are on the same plane.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Certainly, the kama-rupa, the fourth plane, that is what I tried to explain to you: kama-rupa. I am not a scientist, I am not at all an electrician or anything of that kind.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  I thought you were using kama-rupa metaphysically.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Not at all; perfectly physically.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The great difference that I notice in the whole view of physical phenomena taken by occult science as distinguished from physical science is this:   that in ordinary physical science we are in the habit of looking for the cause of things that we see. We rub a piece of amber and electricity is produced.

 
The occult science will say by rubbing a piece of amber you produce conditions through which electricity, which exists latent and ready to manifest itself, can manifest itself on your physical plane.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I find a far greater mistake that you all make in science, and it is the most vital mistake.

 
It is by dividing animate from inanimate things and saying that there is such thing on the earth as perfectly inanimate object. There is not an atom which is inanimate, not one. It is simply the most vicious kind of expression that I ever heard.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It is a very sensible distinction on our plane.

 
The President:  Organic and inorganic.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But there is nothing inorganic in this world; {in?} organic from your point of perception, but it is occultly speaking.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
