stanza 5, slokas 1-5

Stanza V
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.
4. Fohat traces spiral lines to unite the sixth to the seventh – the crown; an army of the Sons of Light stands at each angle, and the Lipika in the middle wheel. They say: This is good , the first Divine world is ready, the first is now the second. Then the “Divine Arupa” reflects Itself in Chhaya Loka, the first garment of the Anupadaka.
5. Fohat takes five strides and builds a winged wheel at each corner of the square, for the four holy ones and their armies.

 

 

“Mr. B. Keightley:  Then the same thing would be true as to the conception of the action of the two forces of attraction and repulsion. You would not think of them as acting in direct lines, but always in spirals. I don’t mean to say the effect, but as an abstract conception.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Not only as an abstract conception, but I think you will find it in physical science that they must act something like that. They cannot act on direct lines.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  That is the effect they produce.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Now look at the pranks that electricity plays with you. Put it in a sounding board. Does it do every straight line?

 
A straight line is a thing unknown in the laws of Nature. Because that is why Pythagoras never would admit the straight line or number 2 – because he says number 2 is not a creature that ought to exist in the Universe. We know the point which is not a point, but the point which is everywhere and nowhere, because it is absolute and universal, or it is the triad or the trinity.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  This is where the scientific idea comes in. They say the effects would be spiral. I think I would ask Mr. Kingsland if he agrees with this. The scientists would conceive as an abstract conception of the centripetal and centrifugal as acting in straight lines, combining together that would produce the spiral action – even in the abstract conception. I should think that occultism would stick to the spiral idea, if considered as abstractions.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  They would not be conceived of as straight lines, and the two combined would produce the spiral.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The abstract idea is, of course, the force acting in a straight line.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Oh, I see. In that sense, it is.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Or any of the forces acting in a straight line. Suppose a force occupying a given point. It would be conceived to act upon any other point situated anywhere else in the room along the straight line joining the two points.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  That is, for mathematical purposes.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Whether for that or for anything else. I don’t believe in it. That is all.”

 
Mme. Blavatsky
