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: Question 16, page 184. What are we to understand by the phrase, “astral human forms (Or the highest elementals.”)
In the following: Monads of the anthropoids, “the highest mammals after man…will be liberated and pass into the astral human forms (Or the highest elementals) of the Sixth and Seventh Races, and then into the lowest human forms in the Fifth Round.”
Mme. Blavatsky: By the time the Sixth Race comes on the scene, all the animal egos now inhabiting the highest anthropoid forms will have been liberated and will exist. Some exist now in sidereal spaces in astral human forms, as I say.
This is what I call here the highest elementals – they have not been human yet.
These will incarnate in the lowest men of the Sixth Race. The young men of the Darwinians truly have dreamed dreams, and their old men seen visions, for their founder must have caught from the astral a glimpse of that which will be; and forthwith dragging it down to his own material plane, he made of it that which has been in his own imagination.
This is the most curious thing, and I don’t think it is Darwin; I think it is Haeckel who took the astral forms.
The Master says himself there were gigantic astral forms in the Third Round. They were like gigantic apes, but they were not speaking of the dumb animals – they were men, ape-like, from which individuals evoluted the apes.
Millions and millions of years after, when there came the reversion to the primal type again, they produced the monsters for which they fell.
Mr. B. Keightley: What happens to the anthropoids is, when they die, they remain as semi-human elementals until the Sixth Race begins to come.
Mme. Blavatsky: They are not yet human, because they were not human.
Mr. B. Keightley: The elementals that will be human.
Mme. Blavatsky: Just as the egos of men are their past elementals.
Mr. Kingsland: But that is not in the Sixth Race, it is in the Sixth Round.
Mme. Blavatsky: There will be a few already in the Sixth Race. Like the chimpanzees, they do not come from space, but these are already imprisoned.
Mr. Kingsland: You don’t call them human Monads, yet.
Mme. Blavatsky: They are semi-human, because they are due to that Fourth Race. Do you suppose, really, that they are men? It is all very fine to listen to our missionaries, who say all the savages are our brothers. They are not. They have the potentiality; the mineral has the potentiality, but the savages are not – especially some of those who died out – they are not the same as we are.
Mr. Kingsland: Then they will come in at the Sixth Race?
Mme. Blavatsky: Yes. What I say is, that not a single Monad will come any more from space, so to say, unless it is here: that all that which had the time to settle in some of the higher shapes, till the middle of the Fourth Race, these will remain on this Earth till the end of the Manvantara, but certainly not afterwards.
If you go and believe this absurd thing, that for every child that is born, there is a new soul breathed and created – that I cannot understand at all.”
H. P. Blavatsky
