Stanza VI, Sloka 5
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: I think there is something in Lucifer this month which bears upon that by Keely about the magnetic circulation of the Earth. Has the rotation of the Earth anything to do with these magnetic currents that are always circling around it?
Mme. Blavatsky: Most assuredly.
Mr. Kingsland: And these currents cease when the Earth is dead?
Mme. Blavatsky: They won’t cease, but the Earth won’t be able to feel them any more because there will be no receptive hold upon them. They never cease; they are always going on, but the Earth cannot receive any more. Just the same if you have a hurricane, and it comes to Lansdowne Road, and if you have got a dead cat there, the dead cat will be swept away. But once it touches it when it is dead it cannot do anything.
Mr. Mead: And the Moon is unresponsive to these forces?
Mme. Blavatsky: No, because I have just explained why the Moon moves.
Mr. B. Keightley: The Moon is unresponsive to these forces, to the end magnetic currents, but the Moon is swept on, carrying on a sort of vampirized life through absorption from the Earth.
Mr. Mead: It does not receive whatever it has of motion from the influences from the Earth.
Mme. Blavatsky: It is not entirely dead. It is paralyzed. It has no more its principles; they are gone.
Mr. B. Keightley: It is dead, but not corrupted yet.
Mme. Blavatsky: Therefore, there is the motion, but not its particles. Sometimes the motion is so great in a dead body that you will find it turned; and then some will say: “the man was not dead”, and came to himself – which is nothing at all but the work of the disintegrating forces.”
H. P. Blavatsky
