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:  Let us go into that question. What is the scientific definition or distinction drawn by science between organic and inorganic?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Occultism would say to you, a dead man is more alive than ever.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Please don’t suggest to Kingsland.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Ask Dr. Williams.

 
Dr. Williams:  I think he wants to get Mr. Kingsland’s idea of the matter. I suppose he has got some particular motive.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  But it is all pro bono publico.

 
Dr. Williams:  I don’t know but what you thought he had some personal idea.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  I thought he probably had some clear notion in his mind.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  If you carry it down to the lowest forms, one shades into the other.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Is there any definition to be given what distinguishes it? What is the characteristic according to modern science?

 
Mr. Kingsland:  What is the characteristic between you and a lump of wood?

 
The President:  You take the two extremes. Science has to admit there is the possibility of an entity or a substance to which they cannot assign either of the words with confidence. I say entity or substance.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The only distinction I have ever heard put forward is this, the distinction of nutrition. Science will generally show – Mr. Williams, will you correct me if I am wrong?

 
Dr. Williams:  That is purely an arbitrary one.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  But simply, the only criterion that is put forward as really distinguishing organic from inorganic is the function of nutrition.

 
Dr. Williams:  I think the latest scientific views recognize no dividing line anywhere. There is no place where you may draw the line, and so this belongs on one side and that on the {other}.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Even if you go down into the mineral kingdom, because you find in the phenomena of producing crystals you get some which is to all intents and purposes nutrition.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I should like to know, if there was no nutrition for the inorganic substances, how they could change. The fact of their changing and crumbling down shows to you there is a growth, and that is perfectly organic, as organic as anything else, only under other conditions.

 
Have you ever thought that on this plane of ours there are seven planes? It is subdivided. This perhaps you have never been taught yet, that even on this plane of physical perception there are seven planes.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
