A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section One - Division E - Motion on the Physical and Astral Planes
II. The Effects of Rotary Motion

Every sphere in the body macrocosmic rotates. This rotation produces certain effects, which effects might be enumerated as follows:

1. Separation is produced by rotary movement. By means of this action, all the spheres became differentiated, and form, as we know, the following atomic units:

  1. The solar system, recognized as a cosmic atom, all the so-called atoms within its periphery being regarded as molecular.
  2. The seven planes, regarded as seven vast spheres, rotating latitudinally within the solar periphery.
  3. The seven rays, regarded as the seven veiling forms of the Spirits, themselves spheroidal bands of color, rotating longitudinally, and forming (in connection with the seven planes) a vast interlacing network. These two sets of spheres (planes and rays) form the totality of the solar system, and produce its form spheroidal.

Let us withdraw our thought at this juncture from the informing Consciousness of these three types of spheres, and concentrate our attention upon the realization that each plane is a vast sphere of matter, actuated by latent heat and progressing or rotating in one particular direction. Each ray of light, no matter of what color, is likewise a sphere of matter of the utmost tenuity, rotating in a direction opposite to that of the planes. These rays produce by their mutual interaction a radiatory effect upon each other. Thus by the approximation of the latent heat in matter, and the interplay of that heat upon other spheres that totality is produced which we call "fire by friction." [153]

In connection with these two types of spheres we might, by way of illustration and for the sake of clarity, say that:

  1. The planes rotate from east to west.
  2. The rays rotate from north to south.

Students should here bear carefully in mind that we are not referring here to points in space; we are simply making this distinction and employing words in order to make an abstruse idea more comprehensible. From the point of view of the totality of the rays and planes there is no north, south, east nor west. But at this point comes a correspondence and a point of real interest, though also of complexity. By means of this very interaction, the work of the four Maharajahs or Lords of Karma, is made possible; the quaternary and all sumtotals of four can be seen as one of the basic combinations of matter, produced by the dual revolutions of planes and rays.

The seven planes, likewise atoms, rotate on their own axis, and conform to that which is required of all atomic lives.

The seven spheres of any one plane, which we call subplanes, equally correspond to the system; each has its seven revolving wheels or planes that rotate through their own innate ability, due to latent heat - the heat of the matter of which they are formed.

The spheres or atoms of any form whatsoever, from the form logoic, which we have somewhat dealt with, down to the ultimate physical atom and the molecular matter that goes to the construction of the physical body, show similar correspondences and analogies.

All these spheres conform to certain rules, fulfil certain conditions and are characterized by the same fundamental qualifications. Later we will consider these [154] conditions, but must now continue with the effect of rotary action.
