She calls it a Ring-Pass-Not, Dallas.

Is this similar then to the usage of it in THE BOOK OF THE DEAD
by the Egyptians, as after death the states of consciousness
available to the Monadic Ego change - body being eliminated there
is 1st.	Kamaloca, and
2nd.	Devachan.  [   SD I 90 129-135 ]

The Abyss separates the upper three planes/principles from
the lower four.

That I grasp as the thread of the Antaskarana between the Higher
and the Lower Manas unites them and bridges that gap  [ Key to
Theosophy explains, I think ]
