repetitions in a work like this, than is considered permissible in good composition. The newness of the ideas makes it necessary to connect the mind with what has gone before to make each stage clear. So far as possible she has tried to avoid this. However, she realizes that there are still far too many such cases to suit good taste but can see no way to avoid it if the points are made clear without too great a demand upon the reader's memory.

The Great V shows Spirit descending into matter until it becomes immeshed in bodies of each of the planes, then it turns its face toward the Father again, and by conquering the planes one by one mounts on its way back to the Father from whom it came.

The horizontal lines divide the planes but simply for the sake of clearness in study. The matter really interpenetrates and the matter of all planes is to be found in any given spot at any time. These planes simply refer to matter in different degrees of density.

On the highest plane we have the Three Great Outpourings of the Solar Logos (God) as they are directed toward the seven planes directly concerning us. There are still higher and higher Great Ones, but the Bible does not dwell upon that except to recognize the Hierarchies in a general way.

Yod, I, is a masculine potency and is the Will aspect of the Logos.

H, Hevah, translated Eve, is the Love Wisdom aspect of the creative form producing power of the Universe, spoken of by the Christian as the “Son.

V H, We He, is the great creative activity of the Logos spoken of by the Christian as the Holy Spirit. This outpouring brought into being the perfected atom of each plane making possible the. form producing work.

The seven Sephiroth are the seven attributes of God, or the seven great creative Agents of the Logos manifesting those attributes. The seven Planetary Logoi.

The Archetypal Man lies upon the Buddhic or Christ Plane and the evolving man rises to that plane when he conquers matter and becomes the Master of Compassion.

On this Buddhic Plane the descending Ego lay till provided with a body by Lord Jehovah, who gave him a mental body.

The symbolism makes the Mental Plane the Dust Land, and Adam was given a body of dust, so he is the Dust Adam of H. P. B.

On the Astral, or Emotional and Desire Plane, the Sand Land of the allegory, we find H. P. B.'s “Shadow Adam.” Matter has become so dense that it hampers the Spirit and its vibration begin to control. “The Woman” (body) “Thou gavest me she did it.”

The Physical Plane is the Black Land, the Land of Cush, Egypt, the Wilderness of Ignorance. Here is fought the great battle of Spirit and matter. At last the day comes when the Spirit turns its face toward the Father who sent it out, and then begins to mount by conquering each plane.

Moses is symbol of the perfected Physical as well as the great Manu of the fifth root race. His number is 345, the number of God's back.

543 is the number of God's face.

543 plus 345 makes 888, the number of the Christ. Perfect Man and perfect God make the Christ Man.

The Soul or Causal Body is built by man's efforts to get back to God, and can be lost, but the Spirit must return to God who sent it out.

IH T, the symbol of Jesus, may be read God the Father and God the Son working on the Desire Plane. 318, his number, means purity.

MSS, symbol of Moses, may be read Matter with double amount of Wisdom.

Mäia means Matter or Mother.
