stanza 6, slokas 5-6

Stanza VI, Slokas 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. Old:  I want to know something about the division of the globe by the Hindus. Do they count five of our degrees to one of theirs, making 72 degrees instead of 360? Are you counting from the equator to the pole according to our degrees?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Yes. You know the present Arctic Circle is 28 degrees. That space they divide into spaces of four degrees each; this is according to Arnold Mackey.

 
Mme. Blavatsky: But Mackey is perfectly wrong there. he is only right about the seven. But this fourteen is a flapdoodle, because he takes fourteen Manus, and these Manus have nothing to do with it. It is the seven steps of Meru.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Mead has an idea in his head that these are counted from the equator. They are counted from the Pole.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is the land of bliss – and after that, when Asia was entirely formed, the last races of the Third Race, those that separated into males and females.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It was at that time the North Pole.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It was simply the Meru, the land of bliss, the land of the gods, and you find reference to this in Hesiod, where Apollo is said to go to Eternal Light and Eternal Day. It was tropical country then. Where Greenland is now you had palm trees, laurels, and I don’t know what.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Remember this, Kingsland, that the axis of the Earth relatively to the Earth {Sun} is fixed; it has the inclination to the ecliptic.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  The inclination you thought [   ] the tropics.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  All this changes twice every tropical year; everything is shifted, if you please. Every 12,500 or 12,600 years it changes.

 
Mr. Mead:  Twice every tropical year, do you say?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes, sir. Every 12,500 or 12,600 years.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Does this change take place gradually?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Gradually! To what do you attribute the fact that the seas more and more encroach upon the earth? All this is that action. That there are continents that are sinking and the sea that is rising.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  That is why we always get spring a month later.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Twelve thousand years ago, the Earth was not as it is now.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  I think twelve years ago it was not, either.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Now it goes very rapidly. And it is time it should go and rest and give room to something better.

 
Mr. Mead:  How much does this angle change by?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  This I could not tell you. I am not learned enough.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Four degrees, I think, every sidereal year of 25,000 years.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Old has studied it well.

 
Mr. Old:  I gave it as well as I could in the [   ]. What Mackey says would agree, because there are 28 degrees to be divided.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
