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. B. Keightley:  I can say with perfect confidence you can answer, if you like. Question 9: From what source does the Earth draw in its active vital principle in order to persevere in its own line of physical development, and at the same time to meet the vampirizing demands of its lunar parent?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It draws its life from the universal and all-pervading ocean of life and also from the Sun, the great life giver. The child receives its first stroke of life from the mother, but once born, it grows and develops by assimilating life from everywhere around it.

 
The child could not grow and live, did it depend only on the incipient life principle which it derives from the mother. It receives a certain thing; she starts him in life with a little capital, and then he goes and makes speculations himself.

 
Doesn’t everything live? We live in the ocean of vitality. It is only the men of science who will tell you that life is not at all an entity, or something separate, but simply a certain combination of organs.

 
Oh, heavens! There is Allan Grant {Grant Allen}! I wish you could see this new book of his, Force and Energy, and the flapdoodle that the man says about the birth of the first man, and how he was born from the Earth, and some gases ad other things.

 
Why, it beats anything I have ever heard in my life. The Pall Mall {Gazette} laughs at him in the most extraordinary way. You ought to go and get his book.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  I think that is a point that ought to be enforced a little more. There is rather a tendency to suppose the Earth became fully formed by the influence from the Moon.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It received its principles, my dear sir; it is not said as you say. Once that it was started and was born, so to say, then it began to live; just the same as a child, it receives its first vital principle from the mother.

 
Once it is born, it has to receive its influence and to be taken into the air and be promenaded. It takes its life from everything, from the air it breathes, and the food it eats.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It shows that the person who put that question seemed to think that the Earth ought not to be bigger than the Moon.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, I suppose he wanted to elicit an answer. No, the size is nothing.

 
Mr. Hall:  Even the child before it is born, isn’t it nourished by outside influences?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is what I said, but I am not going to speak about this question now. Why should I?”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
