Mme. Blavatsky: Some of them. Because they are again divided into seven. This is the great mysterious number of this Manvantara, so you had better not mix up too many things, because you will be terribly confused, that is sure.
Mr. Kingsland: Then are we to understand that the Monads, although independent of these seven principles, are necessary for the completion, so to speak, of the animal life of the planet?
Mme. Blavatsky: Certainly.

Mme. Blavatsky: You mean the elementals which precede the other kingdoms?
Mr. Kingsland: I mean the Monads in their whole career.
Mme. Blavatsky: Certainly, they are necessary.
Mr. Mead: Wouldn’t it be convenient to give some name to these three sub-kingdoms?
Mme. Blavatsky: Call them Smith or Brown or anything you like, because I am not going to bother myself. They call me by a per name when I was young, but they would not call me by that now, I have changed.”
H. P. Blavatsky
