1. The Primordial Seven, the First Seven Breaths of the Dragon of Wisdom, produce in their turn from their Holy Circumgyrating Breaths the Fiery Whirlwind.
2. They make of Him the Messenger of their will. The Dzyu becomes Fohat, the swift son of the Divine sons whose sons are the Lipika, runs circular errands. Fohat is the steed and the thought is the rider. He passes like lightning through the fiery clouds; takes three, and five, and seven strides through the seven regions above, and the seven below. He lifts his voice, and calls the innumerable sparks, and joins them.
3. He is their guiding spirit and leader. When he commences work, he separate the sparks of the Lower Kingdom that float and thrill with joy in their radiant dwellings, and form therewith the germs of wheels. He places them in the six directions of space, and one in the middle – the central wheel.
“Mr. Kingsland: Have not those “mineral atoms” been through a previous state of evolution in a previous Manvantara?
Mme. Blavatsky: Most assuredly, nothing is lost, and they have been in thousands and millions of forms.
Mr. Kingsland: In this Manvantara they have reached the mineral kingdom.
Mme. Blavatsky: Yes, and they have been modeled and remodeled in the furnace of nature for millions and million of years.
Mr. Kingsland: Can you tell us what will be the next stage of those “mineral atoms” in the next Manvantara?
Mme. Blavatsky: No, I don’t know anything at all about them.
Mr. Kingsland: Will they remain as “mineral atoms” all through Manvantara?
Mme. Blavatsky: I don’t know, they have got to evolute like everything else, to something else.
Mr. B. Keightley: I wish we could get at anything like a definite conception of what is meant in occultism by the term, atom.
Mr. A. Keightley: Question 10. Commentary (a). Do the six stages of consolidation here mentioned refer to six stages of matter on each plane?
Mme. Blavatsky: Yes they do, I suppose so. I wish you could meet on Tuesdays and try to ask some questions which should not be always going round and round the same thing. I believe all these questions I must have answered dozens and dozens of times. You all present the same questions in other forms, and it is an eternal squirrel’s work around the wheel.
Now, if you go over what has been written, you will see it is so. It is impossible, if we want to have it from all aspects, we must have hundreds and hundreds of volumes.
Mr. B. Keightley: There is that question we have been on the verge of a number of times, as to the true conception from the point of view of esoteric philosophy of atoms. It really lies at the root of a great deal of the difficulties. That is what I thought we should have spent most of the time over, because it is a very wide subject.
Mr. Kingsland: What distinction is there from the occult standpoint between an atom and a molecule?
Mme. Blavatsky: I have told you, and I cannot say anymore. Molecule you know, an atom you don’t know. I cannot say anything more than what I have said.
Here the proceedings closed.”
