Isis Unveiled: chapter III (The mirror of the soul)

“”Thus, in regard to the Holy Spirit in a third person, I have not been able to comprehend, as ought to be believed, but, according to the Pythagoric manner, in conformity to the manner shown by Solomon, I have understood it as the soul of the universe, or adjoined to the universe according to the saying of the wisdom of Solomon:

‘The spirit of God filled all the earth, and that which contains all things’, all which conforms equally to the Pythagoric doctrine explained by Virgil in the text of the Aeneid:

Principio coelum ac terras camposque liquentes,
Lucentemque globum Lunae,
Titaniaque astra Spiritus intus alit,
totamque infusa per artus Mens agitat molem;

and the lines following.

From this spirit, then, which is called the life of the universe, I understand, in my philosophy, proceeds life and soul to everything which has life and soul, which, moreover, I understand to be immortal, as also to bodies, which, as to their substance, are all immortal, there being no other death than division and congregation, which doctrine seems expressed in Ecclesiastes, where it is said that ‘there is nothing new under the sun; that which is is that which was.'””

H. P. Blavatsky
