|3. Triangular Linking
Enough has been
indicated in this Treatise to show the general plan underlying and accounting for
systemic emergence or incarnation, and it is not my purpose here to enlarge at great
length. Just as it is not possible for a man in an early incarnation to conceive of the
effects of evolution upon him and to realize the nature of the man upon the Path, so it is
not possible for even great  systemic existences to conceive (except in the broadest
and most general terms) of the nature of the solar Logos, and of the effect evolution will
have on Him. Suffice it to add, anent this matter, that when certain vast cosmic
alignments have been made and the energy from the logoic causal ovoid on the cosmic mental
planes is able to flow unimpeded through to the physical plane atom (our solar system)
great eventualities and unconceived of possibilities will then take place.
phenomena likewise of a secondary nature to this major happening will also take place as
the cycles slip away which may be generally summarized as follows:
- First. Certain systemic triangles will be formed which will permit of the
interplay of energy between the different planetary schemes, and thus bring to more rapid
maturity the plans and purposes of the Lives concerned. It should be noted here that when
we are considering the transmission of energy through alignment and through the forming of
certain triangles, it is always in connection with the energy of the first aspect. It
deals with the transmission of electric fire. It is important to bear this in mind,
as it preserves the analogy between the macrocosm and the microcosm with accuracy.
- Second. A final systemic triangle will be formed which will be one of supreme
force, for it will be utilized by the abstracted essence and energies of the septenate of
schemes as the negative basis for the reception of positive electric energy. This electric
energy is able to circulate through the schemes owing to the bringing about of a cosmic
alignment. It is the bringing in of this terrific spiritual force during the final stages
of manifestation which results in the blazing forth of the seven suns. 23
Though the seven have become the three, this is only in  connection with the dense
physical planets. The blazing forth spoken of in the occult books and in the Secret
Doctrine is in etheric matter; it is this etheric fiery energy which brings to a
consummation (and so destroys) the remaining three major schemes. In this we have a
correspondence to the burning of the causal body at the fourth Initiation through the
merging of the three fires. It is only a correspondence, and the details must not be
pushed too far. The Saturn scheme is esoterically regarded as having absorbed the
"frictional fires of systemic space"; Neptune is looked upon as the repository
of the "solar flames," and Uranus as the home of "fire electric."
When, through extra-systemic activity based upon three causes:
- The taking
of a logoic Initiation,
- The action
of the "ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID,"
schemes are simultaneously stimulated and the fires pass from one to another in a
triangular manner, they then too pass into obscuration. Naught is left save the blazing
etheric suns and these - through very intensity of burning - dissipate with great

Pralaya is of different kinds:
- Cosmic pralaya - The obscuration of the three suns, or of three solar systems.
- Solar pralaya - The obscuration of a system at the end of one hundred years of
Brahma. Period between solar systems.
- Incidental pralaya - The obscuration of a scheme. Period between manvantaras.
Man repeats this at seventh, fifth initiations and at each rebirth in three worlds.
The Pleiades are the center around which our solar system revolves.

The Sun is the kernel and matrix of all in the solar system.
- S. D., I, 309, 310, 590, 591.
Kernel comes from the same word as corn.
Compare the words in Bible:
"Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die it abideth alone, but if it die
it bringeth forth much fruit."
The Sun is governed by the same laws as all other atoms. - S. D., I, 168, 667.
