Consider this scenario: A young man or woman enters university and selects Physics or one of the physical sciences as his/ her major. He/ she study the methods and works of those who went before him or her. He becomes committed to certain lines of thought and a vocabulary which supports these thoughts and ideas. He/ she rise slowly but methodically up the scale of academic excellence and try his/ her best to contribute something worthy to his chosen career. He/ she becomes highly invested emotionally and mentally in such a career, and gradually most of his/ her time and effort go into this chosen career, which becomes for him or her the greater part of life. When he or she writes or speaks of aspects of the chosen career, he/ she is careful to choose the right vocabulary and follow the group guidelines of the profession; guidelines which have been built up for centuries by the most notable names in history.
When he/ she hear or read of something completely outside and foreign to his or her field of endeavor, he/ she instinctively and immediately reject the data as from an uninformed source. We all have prejudices and they can be quite unconscious for many who try always to be objective in evaluating “new” data. But, consider how difficult it would be for them to carefully consider such new data as having any validity, and how easy it would be to simply dismiss out of hand such unfounded data. But, just suppose for a minute that their accumulated data built up for centuries by the supposedly wisest of human thinkers was not quite correct and was based upon a limited area of global existence; a physical and materialistic point of view with a rather “fixed” condition which they have been and presently are trying to discover the truth which makes it all “work.”
Now, rather suddenly they are confronted with an alternate view of everything they hold precious to their chosen fields; fields to which they have devoted the greater part of their adult lives. No wonder they find it rather easy to simply dismiss such novelty and to them, rather ignorant data. Take for example, the “strange” idea that everything is continuously evolving and becoming and there is no fixed anything. And, in addition, that the whole solar system and everything within it is ALIVE. Let’s look at this idea of evolution a bit closer. Can it ever be accepted by modern science that humanity, human consciousness and the characteristics of Matter are all evolving apace each with the other and that even our senses, which the empirical method depends upon so much, evolve along with the characteristics of Matter and human history? Consider this schema, taken from H.P. Blavatsky’s, “The Secret Doctrine:”
1) Ether Hearing (Sound)
2) Air Touch (Sound and Touch)
3) Fire (Light) Sight (Sound and Touch and Color)
4) Water Taste (Sound and Touch and Color and Taste)
5) Earth Smell (Sound and Touch and Color and Taste and Smell)
Now, consider this: So far humanity has undergone five Root races, or unique civilizations at specific global locations. Each number above represents one of these five evolving Root races from the first to the present Aryan Root race. Each root race developed one of the elements at the same time developing one of the five senses, which as can be seen, incorporates the ones previously developed. Since the “Septenary Principle” holds throughout all existence, there are two more Root races in our human evolutionary history. As these new Root races come into existence they will develop at the same time, new elements, or characteristics of Matter, and new senses, which we have no conception of at present. The sixth Root race is reported to begin in about seven hundred years from now, and a Seventh Root race in millions of years. At the conclusion of the seventh Root race, our globe will “die,” and the Life Force which now circulates upon it will move on to reportedly, Mercury. Before the Life Force came to earth, it circulated on Mars and the Moon, which is the progenitor of Earth, and is much older than earth. Both Mars and the Moon are now undergoing decomposition, just as the human form does after it dies, and by the next Root Race the Moon will disappear from our skies. As Root races evolve they each display a difference in not only physical appearance but in levels of consciousness as well. Have you ever tried to explain the causes of the differences in physical humanity? For example, the Oriental races, Japan, Chinese, Korean, etc, are the present day remnants, last sub-races of the fourth Root race, the Atlantean. The Aborigines of Australia are the final remnants of the third Root race, the Lemurian. Each Root race has seven sub-races.
As can be seen here, evolution is a never ending process and carries both humanity and the characteristics of Matter along on tide of the Cosmic Plan of the solar Logos. And, that is true not only for our little planet but for existence and Life on all aspects of our solar system and the Universe as well.
Supposedly, the next characteristic of Matter to evolve will be Permeability. This means that we will be able to see the Astral Plane, the one above the physical, just as clearly as we can now see the physical plane. There are seven planes to our solar system. The physical plane is the lowest one; the bottom of the system, and this is where most of us have centered our consciousness. And, this is the plane which modern science now studies for answers to its questions. The answers provided by the Ancient Wisdom come from higher planes of our system; the only source which contains the Truths science seeks.
The only genuine science is the esoteric science which originated in the East and has been gradually making inroads into the West for centuries, and will one day give our scientists the answers which they now seek in vain.
