1. By the power of the Mother of Mercy and Knowledge – Kwan-Yin – the “triple” of Kwan-shai-Yin, residing in Kwan-yin-Tien, Fohat, the Breath of their Progeny, the Son of the Sons, having called forth, from the lower abyss, the illusive form of Sien-Tchang and the Seven Elements:
“Mr. _____: They are trying to comprehend things that are beyond the plane of their capacities.
Mme. Blavatsky: Most assuredly. That which is absolute, which is infinite, cannot have any attributes or anything; it is perfectly unphilosophical to speak of it in such a way as that.
You cannot come and give any relations to that which is absolute, because the Absolute positively can have no relations and nothing to do with the conditioned; all this must be a thing entirely apart.
When they ask me how is this, that this emanated, I say it emanates not at all, because if the supreme or the Heavenly father wants to emanate, it is simply because it is the Eternal Law, the law of nights and days, as they speak of Brahma.
There it is the breath, that principle, that law – and there is something which appears, the universe appears. I say it is a most magnificent and sublime conception of the Deity.
Mr. _____: The highest conceptions of the truth we have are not absolute truth. We can only take in what we are capable of taking in.
Mme. Blavatsky: That is why I say there is no one thing that is absolute and that we cannot speculate upon.
Mr. _____: And we are trying to talk about things about which we have no words.
Mme. Blavatsky: On this plane it may be speculation, but that which has no relation whatever to any ideas we have in our heads it is a perfect impossibility to speculate upon.
That is why the Hindus call it “That” ; they call it the one darkness, when it manifests in it but the rays. Then there is the manifestation and the creation, as they call it, the evolution of the world.”
H. P. Blavatsky
