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: Can you tell us at all in what way the seven human principles are necessary for the completion of these seven principles?
Mme. Blavatsky: Because it is a link. Because every one of them radiates something which corresponds in some other principle, in anything, in any being. If you break one link, the whole goes to nothing.
Mr. Kingsland: But they are not identical.
Mr. B. Keightley: As far as I gathered, as far as I inferred, it was that the development of the earth, of the principles of the earth, is assisted and carried on, or very largely assisted by the development of humanity after it has once made its appearance on a globe.
Mme. Blavatsky: Most assuredly, because the sins of humanity affect the earth, and the joys of humanity affect the earth. And you will see that when humanity is at its worst, then they will have neither harvest nor anything growing, and the earth will be in perfect sterility and despair.
Mr. B. Keightley: You must have this intimate connection between man and the earth, or else you would have no relation at all.
Mme. Blavatsky: The ancients were wise when they called the earth the mother of man.
Mr. Kingsland: What is the difference between the mineral kingdom before these Monads have come over from the other chain and after?
Mr. B. Keightley: Greater perfection.
Mme. Blavatsky: Everything grows. That which we see now certainly has not existed at the beginning of the round; and that which was at the beginning of the round did not exist and was entirely different at the third round, and so on.
As we go on, when we reach the point at the Fourth Round, then everything is adjusted. There is a totally complete adjustment of matter and spirit. And then, till that point we were falling into matter, but from that point, once it is reached, it is matter that goes and ascends into spirit.”
