It is very simple, and has been explained many times in the Secret
Doctrine--whenever one reads that the fundamental laws are based on cycles
and periodicity, that *motion* never ceases whether the universe is in or out
of manifestation, and that the awakened universe can be described as the
Thus, in the beginning (of this or any cycle of manifestation), when the
universe appears on any level (starting with the first awakening of
consciousness)--the first linear motion in each such "appearance" must be in
the form of a cycle (of expansion and contraction) emanating out of the
nonlinear state of Absolute motion (resting in the form of pure *spin* around
a laya point of absolute stillness or Tamas).
When this initial cycle (or vibration) is completed, (i.e. the time taken to
complete the expansion [inflation] and contraction [deflation]) of the first
*wave* (cycle) -- is the first moment of time. (An adept should be able to
detect this moment after training his mind and all inner organs to become
absolutely still.) This "first moment", as each successive layer of our
descending seven fold nature awakens, is the "ultimate divisions of
time"--particularized for each field phase order of frequency. i.e.
Consciousness or the "field" of pure spirit, when manifest through its
vehicle of Buddhi, is at the highest order frequency spectrum closest to
infinity--while physical matter is at a much lower order frequency spectrum
that can be detected and measured by electronic, photonic and mechanical
Each successive stage of Nature, then, as it progresses downward from spirit
to matter has its own "ultimate division of time." On the physical-material
plane, this, perhaps, would be the time it takes for the highest energy Gamma
wave (vibrating much faster than "visible" light or radio waves) to complete
one cycle of its vibrational frequency. Progressively, as we go up the scale
of our seven fold nature, this ultimate division of time would become shorter
and shorter until it reached the frequency of the first spiritual wave
closest to infinite frequency and infinitesimal time. Do we wonder why
occultism (which is at the root of theosophy) teaches that a telepathic
thought pattern, riding on the mental field waves, could be projected around
the world apparently in a single (unmeasurable--except by an Adept, perhaps)
instant, while it would take a radio wave a grossly measurable time to travel
the same distance? Or, that astral energy (and even higher order fields such
as Prana and Manas) can be consciously focussed and manipulated--(as we can
focus and manipulate the electromagnetic and sonic spectrums... e.g. music,
photography, holography, TV, radio, movies, etc.)--to perform so called
"magical" or "mind over matter" phenomena.
How do you see this concept of "coenergetic" and time-linked (seven fold)
"inner fields" with relation to the Third Object?
I hope this helps.
