stanza 6, sloka 5

Stanza VI
5. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses – to obey.
The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war.

 

 

“Mr. Kingsland:  No, I only wanted to know why the mass of the Moon should cease to rotate as a mass of matter when the principles had left it – what was the relation between the principles having left it and the mass of the matter of the Moon ceasing to move.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It did not cease to move; it moves.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  But, as a whole, on its own axis.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Because it cannot move, because the spirit is fled, because the principles are gone; so how can it move?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  I think you are answered by the analogy.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It is only removing the difficulty one step further.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  When a man is dead, when his principles have left him, the body as a whole does not move.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  That is to say, that a man is walking consciously.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is not consciously that they move. They don’t know what they are about. Take an idiot, a complete idiot; he will be moving and running and grinning and jumping, but he will not know what he is about.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Then it is purely internal force.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is simply vital impulse.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The scientific idea of the thing is that it is a purely mechanical movement, because the large mass of matter having once been set spinning, there is no friction and nothing to stop it.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Don’t speak to me about science, because science and I are on cool terms.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  The astronomical idea is that there is friction.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Well, it is so slow that no calculation has found any trace of it.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  They have found traces of it.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  It is supposed to take 300,000,000 of years to make the difference of 1/2 hour.

 
Mr. Mead:  Are you right in saying the Moon does not move at all? Doesn’t it revolve once?

 

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Not on its own axis; I don’t think there is any rotation of the Moon about its own axis.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It rotates (revolves) because it vampirizes and is carried away.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Swept along, so to speak, in the current.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It vampirizes – not by conscious action, but there is a kind of dead matter, which by its own inherent attribute or quality attracts.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
