Just as are the 7 fold (8 field) inner states of human consciousness
(awareness-will) descending as spherical "fields of consciousness" out of Mahatma (the
first force field of pure Spirit) from Atma, Buddhi, Manas, through Kama, and
ascending (figuratively speaking) to Prana, Astral form, Physical body to
Quantum Force Field (vehicle of Kundalini, the negative force of pure Matter
balancing the positive force of pure Spirit). This sequence is identical to the
sequence of the states of consciousness of the Earth as it descends and ascends
through the "Four Lokas or Worlds" (Spiritual, Mental, Astral, Physical)...
"As above, so below."
This interpretation, incidentally, (based on the fundamental laws of cycles,
rationally, i.e., mathematically, geometrically and topologically extended) is
a deeper occult interpretation of the "7 globes" which actually refers to the
seven coadunate zero-points or Chakra centers of consciousness
(awareness-will) that conjoin these globes or "fields of consciousness" -- since, the inner
globes are surrounded by the Mahatma field -- the highest globe of the
"Supreme Spirit"... Thus, the phrase "7 fold" (referring to the zero-points between
the 8 inner globes) becomes the key to their understanding... Since, the first
globe (Atma) of the 8 inner globes is the reflection of that outer field --
which, being spiritual and immaterial, is not of the same substantiality as the
following 7 more materialized globes that are also "not in consubstantiality"
with each other.
For a clearer visualization of these "globes," their one pointed centers of
awareness, and their logical involution out of the initial abstract motion or
"spinergy" of the primal source, see the symbolic cross sectional cyclic
Also, we should not confuse the seven globes (as those "rounds" descending
and ascending through the four worlds illustrated on HPB's symbolic diagram in
the SD) with the globes of the descent from Spiritualized substance (subtle
energy) to physicalized matter (crystallized energy) that are the fundamental (7
fold) natures of both the Earth being and us Human beings... Both entities
composed of 8 globes or "fields of consciousness" in 7 fold states or
"zero-points" (sometimes called "planes") of "consciousness" (awareness of those fields
of consciousness) surrounded by the all containing 9th globe of the Mahatma
aspect of the Supreme Spirit -- which, in turn, would have two higher states of
consciousness (awareness) that are beyond human experience (at least, when the
spirit is in the body). For the more intuitive student, these ideas could be
further extended by analogy and correspondence to infer the nature of the
after death states as well as the dream and deep sleep "states of consciousness,"
along with their "fields of consciousness" and their individualized
"electrical" or "coenergetic" characteristics.
It should be noted that the teachings in the SD regarding these metaphysical
systems are, as HPB said, only an "outline." And, therefore, their deeper
understanding must be intuited (tempered by reason) and not taken literally. This
accounts for the discrepancies between the numbers of divisions, 7, 10, 12,
14, etc., spoken of by HPB (as original transmitter of the Masters teachings) in
the SD referring to planes, states, etc. (and sometimes garbled by the
difficulties in using English as a metaphysical language) -- which were later
partially misinterpreted, and/or intentionally distorted and confused by AB, CWL,
AAB, Perucker, and other theosophical teachers, who ended up sometimes
contradicting HPB, the Masters, and each other.
Incidentally, the concept of "rays" by these later teachers in order to
justify a personalized hierarchical ruling system of descended (or ascended)
Masters, along with a carnalized Messiah as the means to attain a Universal
Brotherhood on Earth, is a much distorted interpretation of the occult and impersonal
nature of reality as presented by the Masters through HPB, and more accurately
and concisely explained above.
I hope this helps clarify a bit further the originally "outlined" teachings
of HPB about globes, rounds, races, nature of being, states of consciousness,
cycles of involution and evolution, Cosmogenesis and Anthropogenesis, etc...
Offered here as food for thought or meditation.
