Stanza VI, Sloka 5-6
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.
6. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards….The mother’s spawn filled the whole. There were battles fought between the Creators and the Destroyers, and battles fought for space; the seed appearing and re-appearing continuously.
“Mr. B. Keightley: Well, question 8. Question 8, page 200: In occultism, are the terms “seed” and “atom” synonymous?
Mme. Blavatsky: There, there! Isn’t that the same thing?
Mr. B. Keightley: You give a hint there as to the question we have been hunting after a good deal: the real meaning of the word “atom”.
Mme. Blavatsky: You are the most inquisitive people I ever met. If it were not your unmentionables that protect you, you would all be Mother’s Eves, every one of you! You are the most inquisitive people I ever saw in my life, and you are the most impertinent. You cannot come and ask one thing after another, Tuesday after Monday, Wednesday after Tuesday, and so on. You want to jump from Monday to Saturday and from Saturday to Halifax. Upon my word, I have no patience.
Mr. B. Keightley: Question 9, page 201: Can you give us some more definite idea – e.g., an analogy on the physical plane – of what is meant here by “Cosmic Desire” which “evolves into absolute Light”?
Mme. Blavatsky: Now there is a question for a modest young woman. The answer is found even in Hesiod’s cosmogony. What is the use of attempting to learn occultism and eastern esoteric philosophy, if one is not acquainted with the exoteric classics. The reply to this is stated in The Secret Doctrine.”
