The Scientific Seed Group
EOH: The work of the seventh group, which is in the field of science, is closely allied to that of the seventh ray and is one with a most practical physical purpose. It is strictly magical in its technique, and this technique is intended to produce a synthesis between the three aspects of divinity upon the physical plane, or between life, the solar energies and the lunar forces. This involves a difficult task and much understanding; the work to be done is not easy to comprehend. It will be carried forward by first ray workers, assisted by seventh ray aspirants, but using fifth ray [JB: evidence-based] methods. They will thus combine, in their personnel, the work of the destroyer of outgrown forms [JB: revelatory Technique of the Presence to dispel illusion, Technique of the Light to dissipate glamour, Technique of Indifference to devitalize maya], the findings of the scientists who penetrated behind the outer form to its motivating energy [JB: study of symbols], and the practical work of the magician who—under the law—creates the new forms [JB: Rules of White Magic integrated into the revelatory Technique of the Presence (Agni Yoga)], as expressions of the inflowing life. [Page 57]
This group of disciples will make a close study of the problem of evil [JB: that good that should have been left behind; study of TIME/cycles], and they will bring about a better understanding of the purpose existing in matter or substance, and the inflowing enlightened and different purpose of the soul aspect [JB: Virgo keynote]. That is why (in my earlier discussion of the subject) I linked the results of religion and of science together; religion is concerned with the awakening to conscious purpose of the soul [JB: in timeless space] in man or form, whilst science is concerned with the activity of the outer form as it lives its own life [JB: unfolds in time, an additional dimension of space], yet slowly becomes subservient to that purpose and to soul impress [JB: telepathy, science of contact and reaction to impression]. This is the thought contained in the words “scientific service” as used by me. The work of this group is therefore a triple one:
1. They will take the most advanced inferences of the workers in the field of SCIENCE [JB: Lightness of Being], and will then formulate the new hypotheses [JB: revelatory Technique of the Presence] upon which the next immediate steps forward in any particular scientific field will be founded [JB: a conscious universe (magic), the survival of consciousness (Consciousness Survival Project), the creative work of the Deva kingdom (Hodson, VBA].
2. They will avail themselves of the sensitive reactions [JB: etheric vision] which the new spiritual Approaches (as taught by the world religion of the time) will have made possible and—utilising the inferences thus made available in connection with the inner world of spirit—will outline the nature of the incoming forces [JB: the 7th Ray and “the inflowing enlightened and different purpose of the soul”] which will determine and motivate the [JB: future Soul] CULTURE of the time.
3. Taking the substance or material [JB: “the purpose existing in matter or substance”], and the spiritual inferences [JB: #2, above] and the scientific hypotheses [JB: #1, above], they will formulate [JB: revelatory Practice of the Presence integrated with the Rules on White Magic] those forms of service on the physical plane which will precipitate with rapidity the Plan [JB: Hint: “the initiate knows because he works] for the immediate present. They will release through this blend of scientific knowledge and intuitive idealism, those energies which will further human interests, relate the subhuman to the human through a right interplay of forces [JB: Deva kingdom], and thus clear the way of those intellectual impediments [JB: dispell ILLUSION] which will (and always have) blocked man’s approach to the superhuman world.
I doubt that it will be possible to do much in connection with the forming of this group, and this for several reasons. [Page 58] The first is that such a group cannot be formed until a certain scientific discovery has been made of such moment that our present scientific inhibition in recognising the fact of the soul as a creative factor, will disappear. This discovery will be part of the acknowledged “facts of science” by the year 1975. Secondly, A.A.B. has not the necessary scientific knowledge to do more than grasp the broader outlines of the intended work, and then only primarily from the angle of the more mystical and philosophical approaches. Nor, my brothers, have I. It will take a fifth or seventh ray initiate to deal with this matter, and though I could invoke the assistance of such a brother, it does not seem to me a profitable expenditure of force at this time. The sigh of relief from A.A.B. as she grasps the fact that there is one less group to tackle on my and your behalf would almost warrant my making this a major reason!
[JB] The Consciousness Survival Project (CSP).
The Evidence for Rebirth (University of Virginia, Dept Psychiatry)
- Voluntary commitment of disciples to briefly contact surviving spiritual co-workers to prove, by providing incontrovertible factual evidence, the survival of consciousness after death (similar to organ donation commitments). [/JB]
DNA I: The seventh group is that of the Scientific Servers. They will reveal the essential spirituality of all scientific work which is motivated by love of humanity and its welfare [JB: Principle of SHARING in economics and esoteric healing], which relates science and religion [JB: ceremonies and rites to invoke the collaboration of the Deva kingdom] and brings to light the glory of God through the medium of His tangible world and His works. They have a most interesting function but one which will not become evident for a long time—not until the building forces of the universe [JB: Deva kingdom] are better understood. This will be co-incident with the development of etheric vision [JB: “sensitive reactions”]. This group will act as a channel of communication or intermediary between the energies which constitute the forces which construct the forms and fabricate the outer garment of Deity [JB: Deva Kingdom] and the human spirits. You will note here, consequently, the possibility that this group’s main initial work will be concerned with the problem of reincarnation. That problem deals with the taking of an outer garment or form under the Law of Rebirth.
LOM: …these different occult schools will be practically ray schools, and will have for their personnel teachers on some one ray or its complementary ray, with pupils on the same ray or complementary ray. For instance, if the school is a second ray school—such as the one in Ireland is purposed to be—teachers and pupils on the second, fourth and sixth rays will be found in it. At least one fifth ray teacher will be found in every school of occultism. If a first ray school, the personnel and pupils will be first, third and seventh ray, with again a fifth ray teacher among the others. 318
Love-Wisdom as the synthetic link
between Humanity-Hierarchy and Hierarchy-Shamballa
DINA II, 518: Souls on the wisdom aspect of the second ray go to Shamballa and join the great Council in some capacity or another. Such a one was the Buddha. Those on the love aspect of the second ray tread one or other of the various paths, primarily that of the World Saviours; They become the divine Psychologists and World Teachers. The Christ combined in Himself all these three great traits.
Those in this second group of souls upon the second ray likewise fall into two groups: They follow the way of specialised detail and of a comprehensive inclusiveness, and are the outstanding occultists; the other group is distinguished by pure love. Of the group which finds its way into Shamballa a developed simplicity will be found to govern all relations.
EOH 227: Many people the world over have for years been trained to recognise two things. First, the importance of the Wesak Festival at the time of the Full Moon of May, because it not only objectively links the major Eastern religion with the major Western faith, but because it esoterically provides the key to the open door between Shamballa and the Hierarchy, between the purpose of God (still unidentified by man, owing to his relatively low stage of evolution which makes it beyond human comprehension at present) and the method of God, which is love; it provides also the link between the Buddha, temporarily embodying will-wisdom, and the Christ, embodying love-wisdom, and also between humanity, focussed in consciousness through the Christ, and the Hierarchy, focussed in consciousness through the Buddha. Owing to the stress of humanity today and the urgency of the response which that distress evokes in the Hierarchy, the synthesis of these two reactions to the world crisis can prove adequate to bring in that outside assistance which could end the conflict along right lines and bring not only relief, but illumination to the human consciousness. But again—speaking here to a representative body of aspirants and disciples—I would state that the focus and the emphasis is not yet adequate to guarantee this extra-planetary response.
Will-to-Good NEUTRALIZING vs. Love EQUILIBRATING EVIL
438: Today the Hierarchy is facing a climaxing activity. From the Full Moon of May, 1944, until the Full Moon of May, 1945, the Members of the Hierarchy will unitedly be putting forth Their maximum effort to close the door upon the Forces of Evil, to direct the Shamballa energy (now let loose upon the world) so that its destructive aspect may be transmuted or directed towards the stimulation which will result in the rebuilding of the world. This will then affect not only the Members of the Hierarchy, but all on Earth who respond to hierarchical impression. Have the following statement in mind:
“The focussed and concentrated work of the Hierarchy at the time of the Full Moon of May, 1944 is—by Their united effort, Their blended thought and Their illumined will power, under the trained guidance of [Page 438] the Buddha and the Christ—to withdraw the energy of the will-to-separation and aggression (a distortion of first ray energy) away from the Forces of Evil and channel it again, via the Hierarchy; it will then demonstrate as the Will-to-Good, and this will express itself via the men of goodwill on Earth. This requires a great Act of Absorption by the Hierarchy.”
The Buddha will start the process at the time of His appearance, through the use of a great first ray mantram. This can be used only by someone of His initiate standing and in collaboration with the Lord of the World. He will thereby deflect the Shamballa force which the Adepts of the Black Lodge have turned loose into the Axis nations; this has been made possible by their receptivity to the will-to-power. He will “corral” it (if I may use such a colloquial and inappropriate term) and will place it at the disposal of the Christ. The reception and the acceptance of this first ray energy will require a tremendous effort upon the part of the Christ, the Custodian of the energy of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom. It is for this “reception” that He started to prepare at the time of the April Full Moon.

The precession of the Venus synodic cycle is now occurring within the tropical sign of Aries. It began on April 20, 1929 (29Ar48) and will end on March 20, 2033 (00Ar22). For this cycle, the signs of the tropical zodiac corresponding to the five “New Moon” phases of the Sacred Pentagram are Aries, Scorpio, Gemini, Capricorn and Leo.
The next synodic cycle will begin on March 25, 2017 (04Ar57), ending on March 23, 2025, quite close to the Spring Equinox of the Hierarchical Conclave year of 2025. The New Moon in Aries of 2017 will occur on March 27.
- Every 8 years Venus completes a pentagram returning to the initial point of the 5-pointed star.
- Because it’s not exactly 8 but 7.99 years, there is a precession effect. That’s why the pentagrams shift slightly counterclockwise, taking about 13 precessed returns to complete the transit in a given sign (currently in Aries for 104 years: 8×13=104).
- There are 5 new moon (inferior or inner) and 5 full moon (superior or outer) alignments in each 8-year period. Therefore, there are 1.6 years between each successive new moon. Of course, between two new moon there is a full moon. A similar pentagram could be drawn for the full moons but the new moon is considered the natural starting point of a cycle.
- A geocentric Venus-Sun conjunction (either inner or outer) occurs every 0.8 years (1.6/2=0.8), that is, every 9.6 months (0.8×12=9.6). That’s why we will observe the next full moon alignment in September 9, 2018 and the next new moon will be in August 14, 2019.
Is there anything more to say? Then, why have so many words been spent explaining what love is?
Because, I think, the coined word has lost its face value, its currency depreciated by the sentimental import provided by both the giver and the receiver in a bankrupt market of self-interest exchange.
Love, like particles of light, can only exist in brief moments, the eternal instants when what-is and what-is-not kiss as space and time.
Love, like the zero, is indefinite, indivisible, unconditional. No ratio can contain it.
So, love is. No thing, no words, can constrain it. Let love be.
“Every heart to love will come, but as a refugee.” -Leonard Cohen
2018.05.29: [JB] The Fifth Ray and the study of TIME and CYCLES of manifestation. [/JB]
R&I: The great principle of cleavage (which the fifth ray governs) is the dominating factor in his time sense; he now differentiates sharply between past and present and that which has to be ascertained in the future. Cleavage, in the sense of separateness, is finished for him and he now feels and knows something of the essential unity of all manifested life; therefore, from the angle of space, he has dominated and overcome cleavage and division; in the sense of time he has not. The great heresy of separateness no longer exists in his consciousness; the consciousness of the initiatory process is not yet over, however for that involves the recognition of time. 600
What Is Time? Michio Kaku’s BBC Documentary
DN: RAY V — This ray has been in manifestation for nearly seventy years. It will pass out (by special and unique arrangement) in another fifty years [JB: circa 1975-2000], thus breaking into its own normal cycle, because it is deemed that the needed special impulse has been adequate and that the impetus given to the human “spirit of discovery” has served its purpose. Any further intensification of the mental processes just now (except through the general pervasive effect of the third ray) might prove disastrous. The ray cycles are usually set and determined, but, in collaboration with each other and because of the imminent spiritual Crisis of Approach, the Lord of the Fifth Ray and the Lord of the World have decided temporarily to withdraw this type of force. It will take about fifty years to do this. 143
TCF: Mystery of Electricity. A group of scientists will come into incarnation on the [Page 456] physical plane during the next seventy-five years who will be the medium for the revelation of the next three truths concerning electrical phenomena. A formula of truth concerning this aspect of manifestation was prepared by initiates on the fifth Ray at the close of the last century, being part of the usual attempt of the Hierarchy to promote evolutionary development at the close of every cycle of one hundred years. Certain parts (two fifths) of that formula have worked out through the achievements of such men as Edison and those who participate in his type of endeavour, and through the work of those who have dealt with the subject of radium and radioactivity. Three more parts of the same formula have still to come, and will embody all that it is possible or safe for man to know anent the physical plane manifestation of electricity during the fifth subrace.
EP I: THE FIFTH PURPOSE OF DEITY. Ray V. Concrete Knowledge or Science
The plan takes form. The plan is form. Its purpose is the revelation of the mind of God. The past reveals the form, but the present indicates the flowing in of energy.
Students would learn much if they contrasted the building power of the higher mind with the destroying power of the lower. Just as the personality has no other function in the divine plan than to be a channel for, and the medium of expression of, the soul, so the lower mind is intended to be the channel for the pure inflow of higher mind energy. 75-76
… [Page 77] in this fifth race, love and mind must eventually and mutually reveal each other.
 …his fifth ray reveals the way down into death or into incarnation (which is the death-like prison of the soul), or it reveals the way up and out of darkness into the pure light of God’s day. I mention this as I am exceedingly anxious that all who read this treatise should make application of this teaching to their daily lives. I am not interested in imparting weird or unusual items of information anent these matters for the delectation of an unhealthy mental appetite. The stocking of the memory with occult detail which serves no useful purpose only strains the brain cells and feeds the pride.
EA: RAY V.—The energy of Concrete Science or Knowledge. To understand this expression of the divine will, the student should bear in mind the occult aphorism that “matter is spirit at its lowest point of manifestation and spirit is matter at its highest.” Basically this is the will which produces concretion and yet at the same time constitutes the point at which spirit and matter are balanced and co-equal. That is the reason why human perfection is carried forward consciously upon the mental plane, the fifth plane; this is brought about by the fifth ray and upon this plane liberation takes place at the time of the fifth initiation. This is the will which is inherent in substance and which actuates all atoms of which all forms are made. It is closely related to the first solar system even whilst liberating members of the human family who will constitute the nucleus around which the third solar system is constructed. The energy of this ray is intelligence; it is the seed of consciousness but not of consciousness as we understand it; it is the inherent [Page 600] life of matter and the will to work intelligently; it is that living something for which we have no name which was the product of the first solar system. It is one of the major assets of God, the Father and also of the human Monad. This is the Will to Action.
Today, as regards humanity, its highest expression is liberation—through death or initiation.
The Three Fundamental Cosmic Laws
TCF 232: This cosmic law, demonstrating thus in a threefold manner, might (for lack of a better term) be called the Law of Being.
TCF 1167: The Law of Economy is the law of the negative electron; the Law of Synthesis is the Law of the positive central life; whilst the Law of Attraction governs that which is produced by the relation of these two, and is itself controlled by a greater cosmic law which is the principle of the intelligence of substance.
The Law of Synthesis relates to the quantum strong forces synthesizing and binding protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom. The nucleons (protons and neutrons; remember that the neutron was discovered in 1932, after TCF was written) are the “positive central life” of the atom. According to the standard model, protons and neutrons are made up of (up and down) quarks.
The Law of Economy relates to the electromagnetic forces, such as the force pulling the negatively charged electron to the positive nucleus of the atom.
Law of Economy, which is the Law of Adaptation in time and space (TCF 143)
We may also consider the four Laws of Thermodynamics (fire by friction) and radioactive decay (quantum weak forces; repulsion of matter by the spirit) under this Law of Economy.
The Law of Attraction definitely relates to the Law of Gravitation. In fact, DK explicitly mentions gravitation as a “subsidiary” law of attraction.
TCF 1171: The Law of Gravitation. This law is for the non-occult student the most puzzling and confusing of all the laws. It shows itself in one aspect as the power, and the stronger urge that a more vital life may have upon the lesser, such as the power of the spirit of the Earth (the planetary Entity, not the planetary Logos) to hold all physical forms to itself and prevent their “scattering.” This is due to the heavier vibration, the greater accumulative force, and the aggregated tamasic lives of the body of the planetary Entity. This force works upon the negative, or lowest, aspect of all physical forms. The Law of Gravitation shows itself also in the response of the soul of all things to the greater Soul in which the lesser finds itself. This law, therefore, affects the two lowest forms of divine life, but not the highest. It emanates in the first instance from the physical sun and the heart of the Sun. The final synthesising forces which might be regarded as forms of spiritual gravitational activity are, nevertheless, not so, but are due to the working of another law, emanating from the central spiritual Sun. The one is purely systemic, the other a cosmic law.
In practice, the three Laws work together, explaining why DK also refers to the Law of Attraction as the Law of Attraction and Repulsion (TCF 275). The repulsion (typical of electromagnetic, not gravitational, fields) is, I think, from the rotational motion within the spiral cyclic motion formulated by this Law of Attraction (i.e., “This law, therefore, affects the two lowest forms of divine life, but not the highest,” cited above). Furthermore, when DK refers to “that aspect of electrical phenomena which we call neutral” (TCF 1166) I believe that He’s not referring to the neutron (undiscovered by then) but to the fact that the particle theorized by modern science as the carrier of the gravitational force (the graviton) is electrically neutral (electrical charge = zero).
TCF 159: The synthetic activity of matter in the three types of movement,—rotary, spiralling-cyclic and onward progression,—which unified movement will be produced by the interaction of the fires of matter, of mind and of Spirit upon each other.
The Quest for the Holy Grail of Quantum Physics is to unify the three major forces of the universe (strong/weak nuclear forces [electrical fire], electromagnetism [fire by friction] and gravitation [solar fire]). However, the “graviton” is almost certain to remain undetected given its unfathomably small magnitude relative to the strong nuclear forces. It’s mind boggling that the vast gravitational force holding solar systems and galaxies together is 1040 (10 to the 40th) times smaller in magnitude than the nuclear forces. However, when we realize that such strong forces are so limited in scope (effective at very short subatomic distances) and that the gravitational Law of Attraction, –the Law of LOVE, the MAGNETIC power of CONSCIOUSNESS– is so vast in its expanse, then we may begin to understand the words of the Initiate Paul: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.” As Paul, “I pray that you [JB: all of us], being rooted and grounded in love, may have power [JB: the 4th dimensional consciousness], together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love.”
TCF: The Circle divided into four. This is the true circle of matter, the equal armed cross of the Holy Spirit, Who is the personification of active intelligent matter. This shows the fourth dimensional quality of matter and the penetration of the fire in four directions, its threefold radiation being symbolised by the triangles formed by the fourfold cross. This portrays the fourfold revolution of any atom. By this is not meant the ability of any atom to make four revolutions, but the fourth dimensional quality of the revolution which is the goal aimed at, and which is even now becoming known in matter during this [Page 161] fourth round, and in this fourth chain. As the fifth spirilla or fifth stream of force in an atom becomes developed, and man can conceive of a fourth-dimensional rotary movement, the accuracy of this symbol will be recognised.
On Quantum Light and Love and Power
By José Becerra
- The fundamental principle of quantum physics is that energy can only be absorbed and released in discrete, indivisible units called quanta. Expressed per unit of time, energy is power.
- Light matter behaves both as a particle (classical or Newtonian mechanics) and as a wave (quantum mechanics). The wave behavior was formulated by Schrodinger as an interference pattern, or interactions, of the probability waves of a particle’s simultaneous location in space.
- Love also behaves both as a particle and as a wave. It can be absorbed and released in discrete, indivisible units called heartbeats. It can also be expressed and perceived along a smooth continuum as the much subtler force of gravity shaping the multidimensional geometry of rights relations in space.
- Energy follows thought. According to the Principle of Superposition, the act of observation (measuring) collapses wave functions into particle functions.
- The memory of time does not determine present or future events. In the holographic world of quantum mechanics, a particle behaving like a wave can be observed to behave as a particle, again, by a future measurement.
- Anything that can happen does happen, somewhere. There are many worlds existing as virtual parallel universes in the holographic reality of quantum mechanics, the science of energy and motion.
- Quantum teleportation is a particle’s telepathic experience of entanglement in the space lattice. Quantum light conveys omnipresence, and gravitational love conveys omniscience, in the living, vibrating grid of space.
- The unifying superstring theories attempt to portray Ariadne’s weaving threads of love and light throughout the world as tiny vibrating strands of energy from which all the matter, and all the forces, emanate in a ten dimensional living universe.
- According to superstring theories, the dimensions of space are ten. These are: solid, liquid and gaseous, plus the 7 vibrational frequencies of the fiery plasma (etheric, astral, mental, buddhic, atmic, monadic and logoic).
- The 11th dimension of the synthesizing “magic-brane” superstring theory corresponds to the cosmic astral plane. Therefore, we may expect a 12th dimension, the cosmic mental, added to the theory of all fundamental forces of nature known in this universe.
- Spiritual initiations are radioactive expansions of consciousness, motions into deeper dimensions, or vibratory frequencies, within space. Initiations are attained and experienced in quantum leaps of measurable observations, soul recognitions and spiritual revelations.
- In sum, mechanics is the study of motion. Motion is an act of the will of some consciousness in some plane, or dimension, of space. The fundamental motions of expansion and contraction , attraction and repulsion, correspond to: i) the sensations of pleasure and pain on the physical plane, ii) the fundamental e-motions of love and hate on the emotional plane, and iii) the acceptance or rejection of truth on the mental plane. These correspondences operate both on the physical universe and on the metaphysical cosmos. As above, so is below.
