Isis Unveiled: chapter I (an axiom of hermetic philosophy)

“The fundamental geometrical figure of the Kabala – that figure which tradition and the esoteric doctrines tell us was given by the Deity itself to Moses on Mt. Sanai – contains in its grandiose, because simple combination, the key to the universal problem.

 
This figure contains in itself all the others. For those who are able to master it, there is no need to exercise imagination. No earthly microscope can be compared with the keeness of the spiritual perception.

 
And even for those who are unacquainted with the GREAT SCIENCE, the description given by a well-trained child-psychometer of the genesis of a grain, a fragment of crystal, or any other object – is worth all the telescopes and microscopes of “exact science.”

 
There may be more truth in the adventurous pangenesis of Darwin – whom Tyndall calls a “soaring speculator” – than in the cautious, line-bound hypothesis of the latter; who, in common with other thinkers of his class, surrounds his imagination “by the firm frontiers of reason.”

 
The theory of a microscopic germ which contains itself “a world of minor germs”, soars in one sense at least into the infinite. It oversteps the world of matter, and begins unconsciously busying itself in the world of spirit.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
