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.
“Dr. Williams: Well, the apparent discrepancy – to go back a little into the second statement of the question – is this: there is brought before the mind’s eye the beginning of the creation of the physical universe; there is matter in a homogeneous condition, and it was brought into that homogeneous condition because of an actuating force, otherwise it never could have reached that condition.
Let us make a comparison. Let us suppose I have a trough or groove constructed for the rolling of a billiard ball, and I know if I strike with a mallet on that which would turn the scale at two ounces, it is sufficient force to send that ball eight feet.
What is the necessity of our introducing as an explanation of any force – which I compare to an extra-cosmic-force – to that which has already received an impulse which will send it eight feet?
Mme. Blavatsky: And do you suppose it would proceed to act in this way if it did not have an inherent force which you represent, and which has an analogy to the force outside?
Dr. Williams: But you speak there of Fohat coming in at that point, and doing something and then leaving.
Mme. Blavatsky: I have no right to say more. There are things I cannot explain, which I try to make you understand – that there is force outside and force inside; that no billiard ball is just that.
Mr. Kingsland: Is that force outside acting continuously?
Mme. Blavatsky: Most assuredly. If you leave a billiard ball, and if it is there three or four years, I don’t think you would find much of it at the end.”
