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

“Speaking of ancient geographers, Plutarch remarks in Theseus, that they  “crowd into the edges of their maps parts of the world which they do not know about, adding notes in the margin to the effect that beyond this lies nothing but sandy deserts full of wild beasts and unapproachable bogs.”

 
Do not our theologians and scientists do the same? While the former people the invisible world with either angels or devils, our philosophers try to persuade their disciples that where there is no matter there is nothing.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
