10. Father-Mother spin a web whose upper end is fastened to spirit—the light of the one darkness—and the lower one to its shadowy end, matter; and this web is the universe spun out of the two substances made in one, which is Svâbhâvat.
11. It expands when the breath of fire is upon it; it contracts when the breath of the mother touches it. Then the sons dissociate and scatter, to return into their mother’s bosom at the end of the great day, and re-become one with her; when it is cooling it becomes radiant, and the sons expand and contract through their own selves and hearts; they embrace infinitude.
“Mr. A. Keightley: Then, question 6, Stanza 3, Sloka 11. The first paragraph of the commentary needs elucidating in reference to the part which heat plays in the forming and breaking up of the element, and also of the worlds in globes.
In it is stated first that “great heat breaks up the compound elements and resolves the heavenly bodies into their one primeval element.” (The Secret Doctrine, 1:83-84.) This heat apparently is already existing in a “focus or centre of heat (energy) of which many are carried about to and fro in space.”
What are the centres of heat? Are they visible or invisible in our plane of matter? What is the “body” referred to, which may be either “active or dead?” Is the disintegration by heat, here referred to, that which takes place in our plane and with which we are familiar in chemistry?
Mme. Blavatsky: Then you see I went to the other thing, and then I answered Dr. Williams entirely on that – the thing where you say something that is in your question 6. That is why I say you have mixed up. You go on to the end, and it will be a great deal better – to the end of that number 6.
Mr. A. Keightley: That is the end of number 6.
Dr. Williams: I think it has relation to Fohat.
Mme. Blavatsky: (After reading question 6.) No, it is not that which I answered. There is the confusion that I spoke of to you, because I know I speak of science here.
Dr. Williams: It is the second statement, Madame, that you refer to. I remember it.
Mr. A. Keightley: (Reads the second statement.)”
