stanza 6, sloka 4

Stanza VI
4. He builds them in the likeness of older wheels, placing them on the Imperishable Centres.
How does Fohat build them? He collects the fiery dust. He makes balls of fire, runs through them, and round them, infusing life thereinto, then sets them into motion; some one way, some the other way. They are cold, he makes them hot. They are dry, he makes them moist. They shine, he fans and cools them. Thus acts Fohat from one twilight to the other, during Seven Eternities.”

 

 

“Mr. Kingsland:  On the last plane of all, take iron, for instance. Has that become iron on this globe, or was it iron before this globe?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Take iron or take anything you like, it was, and all comes from, one and the same essence. One has become iron in reaching our globe, and another thing has become something else, and the third something else, and so on. But all these were the same thing. The essence of iron is no more than the purest ether.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  But the material substance only became this on this globe?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes, it can only be within our atmosphere; therefore, the occult sciences say, it is a perfect impossibility, the speculation of this science, that the meteorites fall sometimes from a planet, because they cannot pass the Laya Point.

 
There is the thing which begins: it is dense, it is as black as night in comparison; it is between the Moon and this Earth. It begins quite black, then grey, then lighter and lighter, and lighter, until it reaches the Laya point, and from the Laya point it begins to be darker and darker and darker, until it becomes as black as possible.

 
Therefore, between every plane {planet?} there is the atmosphere and that which is beyond – not the breathable air, but the atmosphere; nobody breathed it, because you could not. If you went into a balloon you could not pass a certain point; there would be a certain stage where you would immediately die and be suffocated.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Then the “atmosphere” there is used in the purely occult sense, whereas, naturally, anyone reading it would take it as the ordinary atmosphere?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I try to put in the words that everyone would understand. I did not use occult words there.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Then we really see the stars through this atmosphere?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But we don’t see them as they are; it is a Maya, it is a regular Maya of vapors and things that prevent us seeing. It is all nothing but hallucination and illusion.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Are not they really the distance off that the astronomers say?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I don’t believe in it.

 
Mr. Gardner:  How bout these meteoric signs?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Have patience, and I will tell you. The meteors are, as a general rule, fragments of broken planets or comets. Once a planet is broken up, the Laya centres, which separate it from other planets, or the Laya line rather, I would say, disappears. It shifts its position so as to find itself between two planets which remain intact. You understand?

 
You put our Earth, then there is a planet and then there is a third planet; the atmosphere begins dense here; it comes here, and there is the Laya between the line, and then it becomes dark here (illustrating). Then this is broken up, and immediately it goes and will form this between other planets, the next planet and the Earth.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It will spread out on the Laya point?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It shifts its position so as to find itself between two planets which remain intact. The result is that some fragments of the broken planet remain in the old orbit of the destroyed planet.

 
Thus, of course, when the Earth crosses the former orbit of that planet, any fragments that are brought within its attraction fall to Earth as meteors. Did you understand, Mr. Old?”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
