III/1. Green/red

The Green Ray is the universal color of form, ature and outer appearance.
It embodies the inherent intelligence to assemble material building. On
the Earth, the Green Ray is incessantly working to bring finto a higher
expression. This is the reason why of the universality of tolor green in
nature, to which outer human intelligence responds. The 9year cycle is
the Monadic period of the great 3rd Ray of the Mahachohane Head of the
Third department of the Hierarchy. This great beis the Lord of
Civilization, and the flowering forth of the principle ofelligence. He
is the embodiment on the planet of the third, or intellce, aspect of
deity in its five activities. The Mahachohan synthesizhe four lower
rays, deals with mind or intelligence, and, in collation with His
Brothers, controls the evolution of mind whereby the SpiritSelf utilizes
the form or the Not-Self. This function corresponds tonetary Throat
Center of which the Mahachohan and his followers are thponents. This
brings us to a consideration of the vast Ashram controlby the Master
Rakoczi. He is the Lord of Civilization and His is the taf bringing in
the new civilization for which all men wait. It is a thiry Ashram, and
therefore enfolds within its ring-pass-not all the Ashramsbe found upon
the third Ray of Active Intelligence. Rakoczi takes the gal plan as it
is outlined in the inner Council Chamber and approximates iunder the Law
of Economy, to the possible. He may be regarded as actis the General
Manager for the carrying out of the plans of the executiouncil of the
Christ. Under the current cycle of Hierophant inspiratif the Lord of
the World has been initiated the era of the institutof more rapid
initiation, and that in group form, the revelation of the significance
of initiation and mandated the possession of a much er and a more
widespread contact between the Hierarchy and humanity. Throthe Green Ray
come the inspiration and conditions desired for the furing of racial
evolution. The great national and world leaders and final executives,
who possess far vision and are sensitive to the internnal ideal are
influenced by Mahatma R. Through Him the magnetic focaints of those
great organizations that affect the civilization and the cue of a people
are brought into coherent activity. All physical plarganization -
governmental, religious, or cultural - is the working ou inner forces
and causes, and, before they definitely appear in physicalifestation, a
focalization - if it might be so expressed - of thenfluences and
energies, takes place on etheric.

Since the year 1425, upon the fresh out breath f the life cycle of the 3rd
Ray, the new world prayer, The Great Invocation, hasn used by the
Hierarchy though it is thousands of years older than thahe third ray,
which is, as we can see, one that has a very long 9000- cycle, has a
direct effect upon the fifth root race, the Aryan. Since25 A.D.,) the
Hierarchy has been aware that the time would come when the ected move of
the externalization of the Hierarchy and the active oing cycle of
mobilization of the Ashrams in the third or human center wotake place. A
point to be remembered is that this impulse of intention oe Lord of the
World originated in Shamballa, came as a major disturbancethe rhythm of
many tens of thousands of years and has been a basic condiing planetary
actor. Preparations for hierarchical externalization hgone steadily
forward since that time. The first steps concerned internalparation. The
science of impression, with its greatly increased etiveness over
individual contact through the senses, has entirely sueded the more
strictly human method. The inner work is still almost enly subjective
and the mode of telepathic interplay and of impression is basic method
of communication that Mahatma R. employs to reach His workinitiates and
disciples. This has involved for his co-workers in the T Department a
major increase in vitality, in vital tension and potencts reflection
among the masses of men is demonstrating in the constantand for speed
and in the enormous speeding up of the life of mankind inry department
of living. The accelerated movement of the note of the Greey speeding up
synchronizes with the increasing readiness of disciplverywhere for
initiation - according to their status and developed ability.

Present cycle: (c.1425A.D)

When the Hierarchy withdrew behind the separating curtain in Atlantean
times, it marked the beginning of an interlude of darkness,aridity and a
cycle of "blank abstraction," which persisted in its crude form until the
centennial conclave of 1425 A.D., and the out pouring of treater Monadic
3rd ray cycle. One of the purposes of ray histor to awaken the
aspirants and the disciples of the world to the new possibies and to the
new incoming potencies which can become available for use,they will pass
on to a fuller grasp of the developments. Since the adven the great 3rd
ray epoch 1425 A.D. a new scientific civilization and anumined culture
that is utterly different to anything previously known hame into being.
The Green Ray note inaugurated in the world the "Growth thro Sharing,"
and that advanced humanity can now share the work, the onsibility and
the trained reticence of the Hierarchy, while paeling this and
simultaneously, the mass of men are learning the lns of economic
sharing; and, in this lies the sole hope of the world. civilizations
and cultures are externalizations - modified, qualifand adapted to
racial and national needs - of the potent, vibrating and ped activity of
the world initiates and disciples who constitute the Hiery of the time.
The Plans of the Mahachohan, his thinking and livintency pour out
ceaselessly and affect the consciousness of his disciples;se latter step
down the inflowing energies so that the thinkers and idets grasp these
new emerging truths more accurately. The truths thus ped change the
consciousness of humanity as a whole and raise it; tmodes of daily
living, civilized methods of conduct and cultural develnts eventuate.
All this is traceable to the vast ashram of Master R. uthe inner side
and the legion of co-workers who thus serve their fwmen and carry
forward, consciously and with it, the Law of Evolution. The
externalization and the mobilization of the Ashrams of therarchy will be
successful and found flourishing during the III/3 or 3rd ray period (c.
2717-3367) and at the full meridians by the year 5925, - tigh water mark
of the current 9000-year greater period.

1st sub-ray: (1425-2067) III/1. Green/red

The Vulcan inspired 1st sub-ray period of the d ray has produced the birth
of the modern scientific and technological era of prt society. The
impact of printing was enormous - it led to an at instant mass
production of books and truly inted the information age. The
Reformation, the Renaissance, and the scientific period oe 17th century
can hardly be contemplated without printed books. The land event opening
the period is the Gutenberg Bible. Johannes Gutenberg (00 - 1468) the
German Printer was a craftsman from Mainz, Germany. Betwee30 and 1444 he
was in Strasbourg, probably working as a goldsmith, anre he may have
begun printing. In 1438 he entered a contract with threeers to develop
a refined printing technique and became the invento moveable-type
mechanical printing in Europe. He printed the 42-liutenberg Bible
(c.1455) but in the end he lost a suit from one of creditors, who
confiscated the type for the Bible. The suit left Gutrg financially
ruined. Aided by Konrad Humery, he was able to set up her press, but
little is known of his work thereafter.

One of the founding initiates Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519) was the great
Italian Genius. Leonardo was one of the greatest artiof the Italian
Renaissance and the greatest experimental scientist of ages. Leonardo
was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician and art cr who displayed
genius in almost all the arts and sciences. He was bor Vinci, Italy.
About 1470 he entered the studio of Andrea del Verroo, and in 1482
settled in Milan, where he painted his 'Last Supper'. In 1he entered the
service of Cesare Borgia in Florence as architect and neer, and with
Michelangelo decorated the Sala del Consiglio in the Paladella Signoria
with historical compositions. Soon after he completed host celebrated
painting, 'Mona Lisa'. His studies of anatomy and mechal devices show
that he had a knowledge far beyond his own time. Hisebooks contain
original remarks on most of the sciences, including biy, physiology,
hydrodynamics, and aeronautics. Another initiate founderthe era on the
line of the Mahachohan is Philippus Paracelsus (1493 ?541) the Swiss
Physician. Philippus Theophrastus Bombastus, known as Palsus, was born
in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. He travelled in Europe ane Middle East,
learning about alchemy, and acquiring great fame as a med practitioner.
He became physician and lecturer at Basel, but his coversial views
caused his exile in 1538. He pioneered the applicatif chemistry to
medicine, gave the most up-to-date description of syphiand introduced
the use of many drugs. Many of his theories anticipamodern medical
practice. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 - 1543) the initiateish Astronomer
must also be included and his successors. Copernics regarded the
founder of modern astronomy. He was born in Torunac, nd. He studied
mathematics and optics. Copernicus discovered the ematically yet
unproven heliocentric solar system. In his treatise, 'On Revolutions of
the Celestial Spheres' he postulated that the planets, ining the earth,
revolve around the sun, and that the earth revolved ar its axis once
every day. The work had a hostile reception when it was puhed (1543), as
it challenged the ancient teaching of the Earth as centre of the
universe. In the 1600' Galileo and Kepler began to develoe physics that
would prove Copernicus correct. Galilei Galileo (1564 -2) the Italian
Scientist. Galileo was renowned for his epoch makiontribution to
physics, astronomy, and scientific philosophy. He is regd as the Chief
founder of modern science. Galileo was born in Pisa,ly. He studied
medicine at Pisa University, and became professor of mattics at Padua,
where he improved the refracting telescope, with which hund craters on
the moon and the moons of Jupiter. He also observed thases of Venus
indicating that the planets circled around the sun rathhan the earth.
Galileo was condemed by the Catholic Church for his view oe cosmos based
on the theory of Copernicus. Under house arrest in Flor, he continued
his research. Among his other discoveries were thw of uniformly
accelerated motion towards the Earth, the parabolic path oojectiles, and
the law that all bodies have weight. Brahe, Tycho (15401) the Danish
astronomer who observed and charted more than 777 fixed s. He reformed
the technique of observing planets as the planetary tabused were very
defective. Previous astronomers had performed observationsy when planets
occupied critical points in their orbits. Brahe began to ove the planets
systematically, night after night. His assistant, Joha Kepler, later
used Brahe's accumulated observations to improve the rnican system,
which Brahe himself had rejected. Johannes Kepler (157163) the German
Astronomer. Kepler was the Chief founder of modern anomy. Johannes
Kepler was born in Weil-der-Stadt, Germany. He studied abingen, and in
1593 was appointed professor of mathematics at Graz. Heresponded with
the astronomer Tycho Brahe, who was then in Prague, anr a short time
worked with him. Kepler was the first to search for a phal explanation
for planetary orbits and he discovered that the orbits alliptical with
the sun at one focus. He announced his first and seconds of planetary
motion in Astronomia nova (1609), which formed the gdwork of Isaac
Newton's discoveries. Kepler also founded modern optics ostulating the
ray theory of light to explain vision.

Sir Isaac Newton 1- 1727 the English Scientist.
Isaac Newton is one of the greatest names in the historyhuman thought.
Newton was born in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, UK. He stu at Cambridge.
Legend has it that the fall of an apple initiated the traf thought that
led to the law of gravitation. As professor of mathematit Cambridge he
worked on his famous Philosophiae naturalis principia ematica, which
supplied a complete proof of the law of gravitation. law explained
celestial motions, the tides, and terrestial gravitation, is regarded as
one of the greatest scientific achievements. He devel a new kind of
mathematics known as the calculus. He also inventhe reflecting
telescope, and discovered that white light is a combinatio all colors by
using prisms. Newton sat in parliament on two occas, was elected
President of the Royal Society in 1703, and was knighted in 1705.

Past 9000year Period: 7575 B.C. - 1425 A.D.

The first metal technology, produced the early tools and weapons, made by
forging. Temperatures to melt iron were only achieved ie 14th century
AD. Bronze was the most important results of rendering copmore resistant
by adding different metals. Bronze, a mixture of 90 per copper and 10
per cent tin, can easily be cast, and its use had a e influence on
several civilizations. The metal Bronze is then a key land symbol of the
whole era as it was the first metal technology that chd society. The
Greater 9000year cycle fostered the rise and fall of world's great
civilizations, societies, economies and technologies suchthose of early
India, (Harappan) early China, the Indus valley, the Fle Crescent or
Mesopotamia civilizations, i.e., Sumerian, Akkadian and Banian. The base
10 system of enumeration is founded on the basis of thdian numerals.
The ingenious method of expressing every possible number g a set of ten
symbols (each symbol having a place value and an absoluteue) emerged in
ancient India. Sumerian civilization was an advanced civation building
cities and supporting the people with irrigation system legal system,
administration, and even a postal service. Writing deved and counting
was based on a sexagesimal system, that is to say base Around 2300 BC
the Akkadians invaded the area and for some time the morckward culture
of the Akkadians mixed with the more advanced culture of Sumerians. The
Akkadians invented the abacus as a tool for counting they developed
somewhat clumsy methods of arithmetic with addi, subtraction,
multiplication and division all playing a part. The Sians, however,
revolted against Akkadian rule and by 2100 BC they werck in control.
However the Babylonian civilization replaced that of Sumerians from
around 2000 BC The Babylonians were a Semitic people who ied Mesopotamia
defeating the Sumerians and by about 1900 BC establishineir capital at
Babylon.


4500-year Outgoing Period: 7575 B.C. - 3075 B.C.

This is the period of humanities agricultural revolution. The principal
purpose of pre-agricultural settlements was trade aommerce. Towns
arouse at the juncture of trade routes or near supplies oods that could
be traded. This 3rd ray epoch wssed people making the major
technological advance of domesticating animals and pla This occurred
independently in the Middle East, the Orient, and the Acas. Following
the agricultural revolution, societies that we recogniz civilizations
began to rise. The Indus culture and the early Chinempire were all
flourishing as well the Mesopotamia and Egyptian. The ression of 3rd
ray science and technology is most clearly seen in the fur refinement of
stone tools during this historical epoch. Stone tools abandoned for
metal tools. Hunting weapons such as sling, bow, arrow, tolo, fishhook,
and the spear thrower are among the technological vations of the
outgoing period. There is also evidence that mathematand astronomy,
which have been linked throughout most of history, were in active use.


1st sub-ray: 7575 -6933

Early metallurgy commenced when people found t metals found in the native
state would become softer and more malleable when heated could thus be
given different shapes. In the vicinity of native metane often finds
colored minerals, such as malachite, turquoise, and teep-blue lapis
lazuli. The next important discovery was that when heatedcharcoal fire,
those minerals yield copper. These ores were much more dant in native
metals, and thus larger amounts of metals became available.

2nd sub-ray: 6933 - 6290

The pig and water buffalo are domesticated eastern Asia and China; the
chicken is domesticated is southern Asia. People in Jer are now using
mortar along with sun-dried brick to build houses. The st known woven
mats are made in Beidha (Jordan); basketry probably much earlier.

3rd sub-ray: 6290 - 5647

Modern-type domesticated bread, wheat and lentils are cultivated in
southwestern Asia; citrus fruits in Indochina, bulrush et in southern
Algeria; finger millet in Ethiopia; and squash in Mexicorigation is in
use in Mesopotamia.

4th sub-ray: 5647 - 5004

Stone is used to construct buildings in Guernsey, an island in the English
Channel.

5th sub-ray: 5004 - 4361

The Sumerians enter Mesopotamia and start a lization that will introduce
cuneiform writing to the region. The Sumerian city o is founded in
Mesopotamia (Iraq) Sargon's people were Semites, one of nomadic groups
that had migrated from the Arabian Peninsula to the Fertirescent around
5000. The Akkadians established a kingdom calledad in northern
Mesopotamia. The Egyptian calendar, the first known basn 365 days (12
months of 30 days and five days of festival, startingh the day that
Sirius, the Dog Star, rises in line with the annual flof the Nile) is
possibly instituted (from astronomical evidence asly as 4241 B.C
although it may be 1500 years later)

6th sub-ray: 4361 - 3718

Sailing ships are known in Mesopotamia. Beer s known in Mesopotamia. Wine
and domesticated grapes are known in Turkestan; oil pand sorghum are
cultivated in Sudan.


7th sub-ray: 3718 - 3075

The Egyptians and Sumerians melt silver and d. The Egyptians mine cooper
ores and smelt them. The Egyptians exploited mines in thnai Peninsula,
and produced thousands of tons of copper during the pynastic period
(about 3200). The potter's wheel is introduced in Mesamia. and fire
bricks in kilns. The Egyptians develop their number sm to the point
where they can record numbers as large as necessary alth they have to
introduce new symbols as the numbers grow larger.

Outgoing Peak: 3075 B.C.

The Minoan civilization in Crete begins. Menes unites the kingdoms of
Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt, becoming the first Pha. Hieroglyphic
writing is used in Egypt. Ziggurat in Ur (Mesopotami2m (36ft) high
shows that Sumerians are familiar with columns, domes, es and vaults.
Sailing ships are used in Egypt.


4500 year Ingoing cycle: 3075 B.C.-1425 A.D.

The greater ingoing cycle of withdrawal of -years witnessed the decline
and fall of the world's great early civilizations.

1st sub-ray: 3075-2432

After a long period of conquest and re-conquest, the Sumerian city-states
fell to foreign invaders in the 2000s B.C. The invaders umer, like the
Egyptians of the New Kingdom, were inspired by dreams of empire.

2nd sub-ray: 2425-1790

The first empire builder in Mesopotamia is Sargon I. Whe Sargon assumed
power in Akkad around 2300 he immediately launched a miry campaign to
expansion. First he marched south and took Sumer. The mov ed north.
Sargon united all the city-states of Mesopotamia into empire, which
predated the empire of the Egyptian New Kingdom by mohan 800 years.
Under Sargon's rule the people of Mesopotamia began te the akkadian
language instead of Sumerian. But the Akkadians adopterious Sumerian
agricultural and religious practices. After Sargon's h the Akkadian
Empire disintegrated. Around 2200 B.C. the kings in Mem began to lose
their grip on power as ambitious nobles fought each otfor control of
Egypt. The stable Old Kingdom crumbled into a perif upheaval and
violence.

Then around 2050 a new dynasty reunited Egypt and moved the
capital to Thebes, a city in upper Egypt. This new kingdom known as the
Middle Kingdom would last until after 1800 B.C. Stle for powers,
successions, and divisions within royal families led to demise of many
Egyptian dynasties. When the eighth dynasty collapsedound B.C. 2130
nobles took control over what had been units of the king'sy stationed in
their area, and these nobles began to rule as kings of their own. Kings
remained, at least in name, but for two centuries no pharruled over the
whole of Egypt, and common people suffered under the col of the local
nobles. This happened during a period of unusual dryness in Africa and low
flooding of the Nile. Famine appeared. Common Egyptians be violent, and
anarchy swept north and south along the Nile. Peasantized property.
Servants overpowered their masters and made their masters servants. It was
written that the high born were full of lamentations ane poor full of
joy. And taking advantage of the anarchy, people from Nubcalled Cush by
the Egyptians) came north and settled in Egypt, as dircenaries from
elsewhere. The uprisings were disorganized, as rebels usually are.
Rebellions in different areas failed to unite wiach other, and
eventually nobles with armies suppressed the uprisings.d the warring,
the same tendency that brought unity to Egypt a thod years before
brought unity to Egypt again. One ruler (from Thebes) sprhis power over
the whole of Egypt. Shortly, thereafter, around 1900 , Amhet I susurped
power at Thebes. He began a new dynasty -- the twelfth. his rule that
was to be different from that of the pharaohs of previous dynasties.


3rd sub-ray: 1790-1148

In the 1700s B.C. local leaders in Egypt began o challenge the king's power
again, shattering the peace and general prosperity of tiddle Kingdom.
At the same time Egypt also faced its first serious threnvasion by the
Hyksos, a people from western Asia. The Hyksos swept acrose dessert into
Egypt with new tools for war - bronze weapons and horse-n chariots. So
armed, they quickly conquered the Egyptians, who fought oot with copper
and stone weapons. The Hyksos established a new dynathat ruled for
about 110 years.


4th sub-ray: 1225-505

In the 1100s another pharaoh named Ramses led Egypt into a long and costly
war for the control of Syria. Ramses III barely escaped ssination, and
after his war, Egypt entered a long period of decline.ntually, under
the 4th sub-ray, Egypt split into two kingdoms. Begin in n945 Egypt
came under the controls of foreigners - among them the Lib from the west
and the Kushites from the south

The Messenian War. The population of Greece was growing, and many states
began to establish colonies. Sparta founded only onlony, this was
Tarentum in southern Italy. Sparta preferred to expand agt its neighbor
Messenia in the west. An attack by Sparta forced the Mesans into their
mountain retreat Ithome. They fought there for twenty yeafter which the
defenders fled from the mountains. After the subjectionthe Messenians
Sparta developed into a military state. As Greek commerceanded new rich
families began to wrest political power from the aristoc(aristoi=noble
lords). In reaction to the power of such newly rich famil usurpers from
the old aristocracy arose, and, often aided by poverty-strcitizens, made
themselves autocratic tyrants. In 560 BC Peisistratos estshed the first
of a series of Tyrannies in Athens. With the support oe impoverished
peasants he ruled for 14 years. He promoted the cult of At as the city's
chief deity, and his measures to increase trade and emic prosperity
prepared the way for Athens preeminence in Greece.

5th sub-ray: 505 B.C. - A.D. 137

B.C. 490, the Persian Wars begin. The Peloponnesian War lasted from 431 to
404. It brought disaster to Athens and to other city-st, both victors
and vanquished. Many city-states declined in popula. Fighting had
devastated many fields and orchids. Unemployment became idespread that
thousands of young men emigrated and became mercenaries,hired soldiers
in the Persian army. During this period the Greeks loseir ability to
govern them selves. The length and cost of the war made pe forget about
the common good of their polis and think only about ng money. Many
Greeks, losing their faith in democracy, even came tok down on free
political discussion and began to believe that might m right. 430, a
disastrous plague weakened Athens. More than a thirdits population
died, including Pericles. Athens surrenders to Sparta 04. For a time
Sparta tries to rule the other city-states but then in 371ew alliance of
city-states led by Thebes overthrew the harsh incompetepartan rulers.
The Thebans also made poor rulers and were shortly overtn. As a result
of almost continual fighting the city-states became weakhan ever. When
a new invader, threatened Greece, the city-states wereble to resist.
Macedonia invades Greece B.C. 350. In 334 Alexander theat led 30,000
soldiers and 5,000 cavalry into Asia to open his campaign of t;West against
East". Following Alexander's death three of his generals, emy, Seleucus,
and Antigonus, divided the empire into separate domainhe most famous
Ptolemaic ruler was Cleopatra VII who lost her kingdom te Romans in 31
B.C. Seleucus and his descendants first controlled thet of Syria, as
well as Mesopotamia, Iran, and Afghanistan. After a wh however, they
were forced to give up their eastern territories and witw to Syria. In
167 Jewish guerrillas led by Judas Maccabee challenged thleucid control
of Palestine. The Seleucid Antiochus IV had ordered the Jto worship the
Greek deities, but many Jews refused to abandon theiligion. In 165
Judas Maccabee succeeded in retaking Jerusalem and rededed the Temple,
an event commemorated by the Jewish festival of Hanh. In 100, the
growing Roman Empire would conquer and absorb Macedonia and Greece.

6th sub-ray: 137 - 780

In A.D. 6, the Emperor Augustus turned the gdom of Judah into the Roman
province of Judea. The Roman government in Judea still aed the Jews to
practice their religion but it was very corrupt, harsd cruel in its
treatment of Jews. Many Jews therefore began to hope a messiah, or
savior, would come to save them and restore the dynast David. It had
long been foretold the "coming of a messiah" by Jewish pros. In about 33
the Romans arrest and execute Jesus. This is the period he persecution
of Christian martyrs. Such persecutions lasted until early 300s. In
A.D. 312, Rome adopts Christianity. Beginning in the 20nd 300s people
in the Roman world began to feel dissatisfied with theilytheistic and
mystery religion. The empire begins to collapse causingple to believe
that their religion has failed them. The 6th sub-ray pd is the epoch
of the total decline of the Roman Republic and of the Wes Roman Empire.
The Vandals raided and thoroughly sacked Rome in 455anks and Goths
divided Gaul among themselves. The collapse of the Romanire was caused
by a complex interaction of events between 200 and 500. Jalem conquered
by Arabs in 638. By the 500s Germanic invasions had all destroyed the
urban world of the Roman Empire. Trade declined. Cities, s, and bridges
fell into disrepair and disuse. Law and order vanished anucation almost
disappeared. Money was no longer used. Compared with r contemporary
societies - Islamic, Byzantine, or Chinese - Western Europs so backwards
that scholars once called the early part of this period Dark Ages. The
time of the Medieval period in Europe was indeed dark and violent.

7th sub-ray: 780 - 1425 A.D.

This is the period of the collapse of Charlemagne's Empire. His death in
814 left a vacuum that could not be filled. By the late Charlemagne's
Empire laid in ruins. Viking invaders left their landginning in the
800s. the peoples of western Europe suffered and the haof the Vikings
and other invaders. Under the strict control of thh sub-ray, the
Manorial system, Feudalism and Feudal relations around 900k firm hold in
northern France and spread through England and Wes Europe by the
mid-1000's.

This is the Path of the Third Great Department within therarchy and is
the embodiment of the Green Ray of Active Intelligence. Taster-activity
of the Green Ray impulses the development of all form philosophical
thought, communi-cation, trade, commerce, technology, intange of ideas,
transportation, finance, banking and monetary exchange. Tyclic impulses
of the Green Ray stimulate significant developments, ork thereof, the
various epochs, in these various interrelated fields of lligible human
activity.

The key exponents of the Third Ray line ever revolutionthe thought of
their time and give a tremendous impulse to the ability on to interpret
the laws of nature and to understand cosmic process. The lligible units
of its historical study, in its higher expression are tevolutionizing
discoveries that can be traced down through the centu that serve to
stimulate the evolution of mankind through revelation. Iower method of
teaching truth is through the distribution and use of wealgoods, gold or
money. In its lower aspect then, it produces the systemionomic unit as
the intelligible unit of its proper historical study.

Presently (c.2005-2070) the planet is under the third say period that
marks the time of the peak intensification of the wreckprocess of the
entire 3rd ray's ingoing period. The effects of this forcll demonstrate
in the field of the global economic systemic unit as the material order
breaks down in preparation for the universal economy and new methods of
financial enterprise, industry and the distribution of g in the coming
civilization and new culture. Currently, the destrue, wrecking or
dismantling "in-breath," 3rd sub-ray period is now emergi into a dominant
planetary position and will commence to strike the initial "d blows" to
our present modern materialistic civilization. Think tout because the
"third of the third" in the series will be the most dont, as we know,
utilizing the Law of Correspondence. The global systemicnomic Unit will
now rapidly commence with the process of its dismantling wrecking prior
to its rebuilding on a higher turn of the spiral at the nstated cycle of
outgoing ray activity. The first death knell has jbeen sounded to
commence the cycle. Over three hundred years must yet rutil the 3rd Ray
is, once again, on its positive, building and constrve, or outgoing
breath.


The lesser cycle of the racial ray cycle is a period of and finding its
outgoing peak in 450 years. The Tibetan states:

"Ray three has been the longest in incarnation, but 875 it occultly
"completed its outgoing, and began to curve upon itself, and thus return."
(Esoteric Psychology I, pg.348) (1425A.D.+450years=1875A.D.)

"Ray III - This ray will remain in objective incarnatioom the point of
view of humanity for a very long time - so long that itneedless for us
to anticipate its waning influence. that planetary centrich is humanity
itself still needs the intensified application of thforces so as to
stimulate even the "lowest of the sons of men." (The Dest of the Nations,
pg. 142)

It might be added here that when this is recognized it wbecome apparent
that the revolutionizing scientific discoveries which cantraced down the
centuries, such as the formulation of the Law ravitation, the
circulation of the blood, the ascertainment of the ne of steam, the
discovery by man of that form of electrical phena which he has
harnessed, and the more recent discovery of radiure in their own
department (that of the Mahachohan), analogous to the effmade during the
last quarter of each century to stimulate the evolutif men through a
further revelation of some part of the Secret Doctrine. on, Copernicus,
Galileo, Harvey, and the Curies are, on their own lof force, light
bringers of equal rank with H. P. B. All revolutionized thought of their
time; all gave a great impulse to the ability of man toerpret the laws
of nature, and to understand the cosmic processd only those of
circumscribed vision will fail to recognize the unit the many force
impulses emanating from the one Lodge. [A Treatise On Cosmic Fire, pg.1037]

"Some idea as to the Mahachohan's cycle of emanatimpulses may be
gathered by considering the dates of the foremost discovs since Plato's
time;" (A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, p. 1037-1038)

This reference from the Tibetan's work is very eao calculate and
historically configure. Just below, I have preed a very brief
explanation. Please do read it carefully. It runs ollows. History
informs us, to produce Philosophers, Plato founde Athens, in the
eighties of the fourth century B.C. "The Academy, " an itution devoted
to philosophical research and training became the prototfor all Western
universities. Commencing in 375 B.C., therefore,may pick up the
spiral-cyclic thread of the third ray's cycle of emanatompulses. Let us
begin to pick up the thread and thus trace the chronolol configuration
of the 900 year period since the time of Plato. Given thae third ray has
been in outgoing activity since 1425 A.D., we can eastrace backwards
from that time. Let me explain. If we subtract two nine hed year periods
or 1,800 years from 1425 A.D., we arrive at the year 37C., the time of
the founding of the Platonic Academy

One complete 900 year racial period is comprised of sevutgoing sub-ray
periods followed by seven ingoing sub-ray periods. This s a total of 14
sub-ray cycles of approximately 64.2 years each. (450 y divided by 7 =
64.2) In a state of constant flux and efflux, the rayles overlap one
another. Derived through the use of the Master Numbe, the interlude
period calculation allows us to account for complete fre in functioning
from one period of influence to the next. The interlude fe is calculated
by dividing the period of the cycle by 10. In this cas0 divided by 10
equal 90. The number 90 is divided by 10 one more tind equal 9. The
number 9 is then multiplied by two producing a value of 18rs. This is the
interlude figure for the third racial ray's sub-rays. In r words, do not
add the interlude calculation to the length of the sub-ray periods.

Let me
explain this further. The figure 450 years, exactly onlf of the third
ray period, is divided by 7 which equals approxely 64.2 years.

Therefore, approximately 64.2 years is the length of theh one of the 14
sub-ray periods comprising the total of the 900year outgoand the ingoing
cycle. Nine years preceding the actual date for tmergence of the
sub-ray and nine years following are figured inaccount for the
overlapping of the two sub-ray periods. There are no harnes or cusps in
space as all cycles overlap one in other. In other wordserlapping every
64.3 year period is an 18 year cycle (2x9), with a nine yperiod lying on
either side. We are actually adding nine years to one sof the date and
subtracting nine years from the other side. But, this icessary because
the interlude calculation allows us to understane timing of the
transition between sub-rays; in no way does it figure inthe calculation
of the total cycle. The figure 64.2 years is therefore, actual sub-ray
period value for the 14 sub-rays of the racial cycle andyears 0r, (2x9)
the interlude figure.

Once again; keep in mind the following words of the Tib concerning the
ingoing cycle of activity of the third ray when it begio curve in upon
itself and return.

"When this events occurs in connection with any type ofrgy, the effect
produced is always of a crystallizing nature and is apt toduce "set
forms which warrant prompt destruction." This causes menconditions of a
set or static nature. The inference is clear that in tatter stages of
this ray's activity we have demonstration of those dogm, sectarian and
theological attitudes for instance, which mark the dec and consequent
uselessness of the various schools of thought whiche in their time
embodied man's idea and sufficed for his help during period of their
growth." (Esoteric Psychology I, pg 349)

It is particularly illuminating for students to work oue numerology of
the word Mahachohan. Let us do so:

M A H A C H O H A N

4+1+8+1+3+8+6+8+1+5 = (45) = 9

The [RAN] - reduced alpha number - numerical value of 10 digits which
compose the name equal "45" or "9", as (4+5 = 9). These are, in fact, the
key figures of the third ray. The period of peaergence, or the
high-water mark of the third ray, is at 4.5 years whoccurs half-way
through its period of 9 years.. After that, the ray en curves in upon
itself, declines and returns to its source only to a, emerge on its
outgoing period.

In no way, is what follows on the 900year 3rd ray al spiral to be
considered thorough and is only to be viewed as a very b and suggestive
skeletal outline, at best. Students can break down the dafor the various
sub-ray periods for themselves and then attempt to chronocally configure
the corresponding landmark events, monuments, person and historical
processes of any given period and will profit much in the attempt to do so.

The years in Greece during the era that preceded the outg cycle of A.D.
375 were characterized, with famine and at times sucharound A.D. 850
with wide spread starvation. The rocky and arid soi Greece did not
produce enough food to maintain sustenance for topulation. This
economic reality in ancient Greece is what fostered what to be known as
the famous "grain trade". The Greeks were a seafarinople and traded
Greek armor, the finest, and olive oil for grain ider to feed and
sustain the populace. As Greek commerce expanded new ricmilies began to
wrest political power from the aristocray. In reaction te power of such
newly rich families, usurpers from the old aristocracose, and, often
aided by poverty-struck citizens, made themselves autocratyrants. In 560
BC Peisistratos established the first of a series of Tnies in Athens.
With the support of the impoverished peasants he rulor 14 years. He
promoted the cult of Athena as the city's chief deiClashes between
established religions and natural philosophies occurrepecially in the
5th century when the irreligious attitude of the phiphers became an
issue. It resulted in the condemnation of Anaxagoraho had to leave
Athens in exile and the death of Socrates. In Socrates, fxample, we find
both the Greek epitome and scourge of the highest id and those very
goals that made Greece great.
What Athens had proudly given birth to, she then puni herself for so
ignominiously passing the death sentence of Socrates.

Outgoing Cycle: 375B.C. - 75 A.D.

The Classical period and its chronological end falls in B.C., the death
of the Macedonian king Alexander the Great. This dat conventionally
fixed as the end of the Classical period and teginning of the
Hellenistic period. On this traditional scheme of reckonthe Hellenistic
period is made to reach until 30 B.C., the death of Cleoa VII, queen of
Egypt and the last descendant of the Macedonian l house. In the
Hellenistic period Rome became the foremost power ie Mediterranean
region and eventually made Greece a Roman province.

Aristotle, in 343 became the tutor of Alexander, the sf Phillip II of
Macedon, later known as Alexander the Great. Alexander uered the world
from Greece to India before his death in 323B.C. Alexans armies spread
the Greek, or Hellenic culture, producing a fusion hat we now term
Hellenistic. Aristotle discovers that free fall is an lerated form of
motion. Aristotle also teaches that space is filled withter. He further
classifies and divides 500 known species of animals eight distinct
classes. Aristotle founds the Lyceum in Athens in 33t is called the
peripatetic school of philosophy because the philosopherre taught while
walking around the neighborhood of the Lyceum, a templ Apollo. In 332
Alexander the Great founds Alexandria, a city in which ure and science
will soon flourish.

The landmark symbols of the era are best representy the Greek and
Hellenistic contributions to science. This epoch witne and produced a
vitalization along the lines of mathematics, logic, phophy, geometry,
astronomy, architecture, geography and history. Grideas, customs,
civilization and culture spread through colonization, cont, commerce and
sea transportation. The doctrines of Plato, Aristotle, teo-Pythagoreans
and the Stoics dominated the intellectual stage. Scienhat presents an
organized view of the universe developed with thse of the Greek
civilization. Around the 4thcentury B.C. Athens became center of Greek
intellectual activity. Pythagorean ideas strongly influd the school of
Plato and scientific thinking became more metaphysical in nature.

Aristotle, in Athens, the hof the Lyceum, introduced the
inductive-deductive method, a "scientific method" thaill plays a key
role in scientific thinking today. Aristotle stated thhe investigator
of nature should deduce general principles from obserons by deducing
them from the general principles - the dtive phase.


1st sub-ray period: 375-311B.C

About 375BC Archytas of Tarentum develops mechan He studies the
"classical problem" of doubling the cube and applies mattical theory to
music. He also constructs the first automaton. Abo60BC Eudoxus of
Cnidus develops the theory of proportion, and the me of exhaustion.
About 340BC Aristaeus writes Five Books concerning CoSections. About
330BC Autolycus of Pitane writes On the Moving Spherich studies the
geometry of the sphere. It is written as an astronomxt. About 300BC
Euclid gives a systematic development of geometry in Stoicheion (The
Elements). He also gives the laws of reflection in Catoptric/p>

About 320BC
Eudemus of Rhodes writes the History of Geometry. Gal later corrects
his notion that heavier bodies will fall faster than ler bodies. From
this manuscript we know much of the little known earistory of Greek
mathematics. Praxagoras, a Greek physician distinguishetween veins and
arteries, although he thinks arteries are hollow t that carry air
throughout the body. Kiddinu, of Babylonia works out anly and somewhat
inaccurate version of the precession of the equino Zeno of Citium
(Cyprus) establishes the philosophical school of the Stoiteaching in the
Painted Porch at Athens, stoa poecile. The Via Appiaom Rome to Alba
Longa is the first Roman aqueduct bringing water to Romem springs 16 km
away are built by Appius Claudius Caesuc in 312. The tians know that
right triangles can be formed with sides in the ratio of 5, 5:12:13, and
20:21:29; they knew the 3:4:5 triangle much earlier.

2nd sub-ray period: 311-247B.C.

Under the 2nd sub-ray, coincidently, the Chinese concepf Yin and Yang,
paired opposites, are incorporated into the Chineodel of how the
universe is organized. Euclid's Elements summarized organizes the
mathematical knowledge developed in Greece; it includes imation on plane
and solid geometry, the theory of numbers and is thsic textbook of
mathematics for the next 2000 years. The Great Wall of a is started in
260. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, anothandmark 2nd ray
monument, the Pharos Lighthouse is built at Alexandria in 283.

3rd sub-ray period: 247-183B.C.

The 3rd sub-ray period of the greater 3rd period was prodve a fertile to
the extreme as the ray historian would logically expectout 235BC under
the inspiration of the positive outgoing third sub-ray of 900-year third
ray period we find the Hellenic librarian Eratosthenes, calculates the
circumference of the Earth from the difference atitude between
Alexandria and Syene (Aswan) and finds a figure of (46,0m or 28,500 mi)
close to the present value; he also lays down the firstes of longitude
on a map of Earth. Eratosthenes estimates the Earth'scumference with
remarkable accuracy finding a value that is only ab15% too big. In
Central America, the Maya develop their system of enumera, a place-value
system based on 20 that is complete with zero; it is thet sophisticated
way or writing numbers for the next 1000 years. About B.C. 2in "On the
Sphere and the Cylinder," Archimedes gives the formulae calculating the
volume of a sphere and a cylinder. In his "In Measurement of the Circle" he
gives an approximation of the value of pi with a methhich will allow
improved approximations. In "Floating Bodies" he presents what is now called
"Archimedes' principle" and begins the study of hydrtics. He writes
works on two- and three-dimensional geometry, studying ces, spheres and
spirals. His ideas are far ahead of his contempies and include
applications of an early form of integration.

About 230BC, Nicomedes writes
his treatise On conchoid lines which contain his disry of the curve
known as the "Conchoid of Nicomedes". About 225BC, lonius of Perga
writes Conics in which he introduces the terms "parabola", "ellipse" and
"hyperbola". About 200BC, Diocles writes on burning mirro a collection of
sixteen propositions in geometry mostly proving resuln conics. About
190BC, Chinese mathematicians use powers of 10 to exprmagnitudes.


4th sub-ray period: 183-119B.C.

Under the 4th sub-ray, the first paved roads are built ime. The Chinese
make paper; it is used for a packing material, for clothind for personal
hygiene, but not for writing. Hipparchus of Nicea key) draws up a
listing of fixed stars and discovers the precession of tquinoxes. Roman
engineers and soldiers build Hadrian's Wall in 122 to pct Britain from
the northern tribes.

5th sub-ray period: 119-55B.C.

A key landmark symbol of the 5th sub-ray period is tld Silk road, a
route on which Chinese and European goods are exchangis established.
The Great Wall of China is completed.

6th sub-ray period: 55B.C-09A.D.

Julius Caesar introduces the Julian calendar of three 365 years followed
by one of 366 days in 46B.C. Herod the Great has thest large harbor
constructed in the open sea to support his new town of area Palestinae
(near present day Haifa). The harbor is constructedgiant blocks of
concrete poured into wooden forms.

7th sub-ray period: 09-75A.D.

About 1AD, Chinese mathematician Liu Hsin uses decimal fions. About 20,
Geminus writes a number of astronomy texts and The TheoryMathematics. He
tries to prove the parallel postulate. (See this Historpic.) About 50,
Chinese mathematician Sun-tzi presents the first n example of an
indeterminate equation. About 60, Heron of Alexan writes Metrica
(Measurements). It contains formulas for calculating arand volumes. De
material medica by Greek physician Pedanius Diosces of Anazarbus
(Turkey) deals with the medical properties of about 600 ts and nearly a
thousand drugs. Pliny the elder writes Naturalis hiia a work of 37
volumes summarizing all that is know in his time about asomy, geography,
and zoology. About 290BC, Aristarchus of Samos uses a etric method to
calculate the distance of the Sun and the Moon from Earte also proposes
that the Earth orbits the Sun. About 290BC, The Chinelassic Chou pei
suan ching is written. 127BC, Hipparchus discovers thecession of the
equinoxes and calculates the length of the year to within minutes of the
correct value. His astronomical work uses an early fof trigonometry.
About 150BC, Hypsicles writes On the Ascension of Stars.this work he is
the first to divide the Zodiac into 360 degrees. A 100BC, Chinese
mathematicians are the first to introduce negative ers. About 1AD,
Chinese mathematician Liu Hsin uses decimal fractions.

Ingoing Cycle: 75 - 525 A.D.

The cycle of withdrawal of the third ray is marked by deep sleep that
intervened between the break-up of the Roman Empand the gradual
emergence of western society. Perhaps, one of the most iinating symbols
of the destructive aspects of the ingoing epoch is seenthe ruin of the
Roman roads and the corresponding decline of trade, cultuinterchange and
commerce. But the closing of the Greek schools for ting paganism by
emperor Justinian just about 900 years, or one complperiod, is also
highly symbolic. The last great center of learning in Gre the Academy of
Lyceum in Athens was closed in 529A.D.

1st sub-ray period: 75-139

Just prior to A.D. 75, but close enough to be configurn the first ray
period, in A.D. 64 the great fire struck Rome, thought ave been set by
Nero. In A.D. 68 the Senate, with the backing of the palguard condemned
Emperor Nero who then committed suicide.

Pompeii and its neighboring city of Herculaneum, southeaf modern Naples
had both been badly damage by an earthquake in A62. Neither had
completely recovered by A.D. 79. The key landmark e of the 1st ray
period is seen in the destruction of Pompeii. On augu4, A.D. 79, the
volcano Vesuvius erupted in southern Italy. The city ofpeii was buried
in a single day.

2nd sub-ray period: 139-203


3rd sub-ray period: 203-267


4th sub-ray period: 267-331

Beginning in about the A.D. 300s, the Eastern and Westernrches disagreed
on a number of religious and political issues ane disagreements
intensified. The iconoclastic controversy was but one ony reasons that
divided the churches. The most serious issue concd the source of
religious authority. The pope in Rome and the patriarc Constantinople
did not agree on their roles in the Christian Church. Tope stated that
he was the supreme leader of the church; the patriarch red to recognize
this claim. In addition, the two church leaders also dised on points of
doctrine. They challenged each other for control of the churches in the Balkan Peninsula.

5th sub-ray period: 331-395


6th sub-ray period: 395-459

Under the negative aspects of the fanatical 6th sub period secular
knowledge and science became associated with heathenism,idea the led to
the destruction of the Library of the Temple of Serapis iexandria in 390
by Bishop Theophilus and the murder of the famfemale initiate
philosopher and mathematician Hypatia, instigated i5 by St. Cyril,
Bishop of Alexandria.

 

 

 

PART II

7th sub-ray period: 459-525

 

Outgoing Cycle: 525 - 975 A.D.

In the configuration of Chinese history this period appmates the epoch
of the T'ang dynasty, (618 -907) the period of the Go Age of Chinese
civilization. T'ang rulers promoted trade and it became basis for the
empire's great prosperity. Jade, porcelain, rice, silspices, tea and
other Chinese products flowed to India and the Middle Easuddhism and its
philosophy were carried to China by both the southern seate and overland
along the silk route. Buddhism was favorably viewed andtected by T'ang
rulers and it flourished.

The Islamic culture played the pivotal and key role ridging the gap
between the Hellenistic period and the future Renaice. During this
period the Islamic empire became the most advanced lization in the
Western world. The role of Islamic culture in the develot of science is
seen by the large number of scientific terms with Arabirigins, such as
azimuth and algebra. The Arabs not only translated preserved the
scientific works of the ancients and the Hindu Indian thlso contributed
themselves to several academic fields. In astronomey made a large
number of accurate observations with instruments superio the Greeks. In
addition, they compiled astronomical tables that remainn use until the
Renaissance. The Arabs revived astronomy by studyihe ancients and
repeating their observations. Arabian mathematics blossoin part because
it combined the mathematical knowledge of the Greeith that of the
Indians. The introduction of Indian numerals, often callrabic numerals,
with their decimal place-value system, simplifialculations. In
addition, however, the Arabs were not content to merelyserve the Greek
and Indian traditions but added new ideas of their owpecially in the
solving of equations, trigonometry and numerical caation. As well,
Chemistry developed into an experimental science during tperiod with the
Arabs. In Physics, as in astronomy, Arab scholars excelin the craft of
instrument making. Alhazen's Treasury of Optics remainefluential until
the sixteenth century. Medicine also became highly devel and a complete
infrastructure for health care existed. During the 6th ury medicine in
the works of Hippocrates and Galen were studied in monasteries of
Europe. In addition, the high level of learning in Saleruring the ninth
century heralded the revival of science during the laterdle Ages. A key
landmark economic symbol of the entire 450year outgoing e is the famous
Byzantine silk trade. The major Byzantine industry was ing silk. It is
their famous silk trade that made the empire wealthy.developed after
A.D. 550 when Emperor Justinian sent two monks to Chinae center of the
silk industry. On a visit to a silk factory the monks e some silkworm
eggs, hid them in hollow bamboo canes, and smuggledm out of china.
Transplanted in Constantinople, the silkworms fed on erry leaves and
spun the silk that made the empire wealthy. The city ofstantinople and
its role as a center of trade is pivotal to trace dg this outgoing
period of ray activity. The foremost occupation of Byzae scholars, was
copying the writings of the ancient Greeks and Ro. By preserving
ancient works on science, medicine and mathematics, thzantines helped
spread classical knowledge to the Western world.

Let us now proceed to briefly enumerate and review the mark events and
persons of the seven sub-ray periods that mark 450year period
525-975A.D. of decline and withdrawal.

1st sub-ray period: 525-589

>From A.D. 500, when Western Europe was in decline, tyzantine Empire
became a brilliant center of civilization. Its scholpreserved Greek
philosophy and literature; Roman political and legal i; and Christian
theology, or religious teachings. The Byzantines also crd new art forms
and spread the religion of the Eastern Orthodox Church into Eastern Europe.

2nd sub-ray period: 589-653

The followers of the new religion of Islam sought to sprtheir faith and
acquire wealth. By the A.D. 630s, they occupied Syrid Palestine and
expanded into Persia and across North Africa.

3rd sub-ray period: 653-717

Although the base of the Byzantine economy was agrtural, commerce
thrived in the cities such as Constantinople that was thte of a natural
crossroad for trade. Byzantine ships loaded with cargoled between the
Mediterranean and Black seas by way of the Bosporus and anelles. At the
eastern shore of the Black Sea, goods could be shippverland through
Asia. Rivers such as the Dnieper, which flowed from theck Sea north to
the Baltic provided access to northern Europe. Merchanraded Byzantine
agricultural goods, furs and slaves from northern Euroor luxury goods
from the East. To Constantinople's busy harbor, callhe Golden Horn,
ships brought cloves and sandalwood from the East Indipepper, copper,
and gems from India and Ceylon, and silk from China.

4th sub-ray period: 717-781

Among the products of Byzantculture were beautiful icons,
jewel-encrusted crosses, and carved ivory boxes for sacrtems. These art
forms were adopted by Eastern Europe and also influencedtern Europe and
the Middle East. Religious subjects were the source Byzantine art.
Icons, the most popular art form, portrayed saints other religious
figures and were displayed on walls of homes ches and shrines.
Magnificent churches were embellished with gold and sr, polished and
carved ivory, marble, and jewels. The Byzantines also lled in the art
of the mosaic, or pictures made of many pieces of cod glass or flat
stone set in plaster

The Chinese, under the Mercury period, invented the eement, the most
important part of the mechanical clock in 725 but theye also familiar
with many other mechanical devices such as the connecting and the piston
long before they became known in Europe.

5th sub-ray period: 781-845

Baghdad develops into one of the most important centof learning and
thought. Al-Ma'Mun (786-833) founded a "House of Wisdom &qu in Baghdad that
contained a famous astronomicbservatory.


6th sub ray period: 845-911

Byzantine literature focused on salvation of the soul anddience to God's
will. Writers composed hymns and poems in praise of Chrand his mother,
Mary. Byzantine authors wrote books about the livf saints, which
provided the reader with moral lessons as well as acco of the saint's
miracles and adventure. The gnment-supported University of
Constantinople, established in A.D. 850, trained scholand lawyers for
government jobs; the Eastern Orthodox Church provided rious schools to
train priests and theological scholars. Church ionaries taught
neighboring peoples about eastern Orthodoxy and convermany of them to
their faith. They also spread Byzantine arts and leag. Among two of
the most successful missionaries were the brothers C and Methodius.
They reasoned that an alphabet for the Slavic langs would be more
acceptable to the Slavic people who lived north of thpire if it were
presented in their own language. About A.D. 860 Cyril sed an alphabet
for the Slavic languages. Known today as Cyrillic (sihl ihk) alphabet
in honor of its inventor, this script is still used by Runs, Ukrainians,
Bulgarians and Serbs. When Cyril and Methodius prese the Slavs with
Cyrillic translations of the Bible and church cerems, they won man
coverts to Orthodox Christianity.

7th sub-ray period: 911-975

Furnace bellows driven by water wheels contributed to grand astonishing
developments in iron and steel production in China. Agriure was greatly
improved with the introduction of the iron ploughshare around 1000A.D.

High water mark: 975A.d.

In the 10th century, the Islamic Cordoba, in Spain, becthe richest and
largest city in Europe and contained a library of 400 volumes. The
University of Constantinople was highly regarded durthis period for
its courses in mathematics, biology, philosophy, theol literature and
music. Tuition was free to students who qualified and ters were paid by
the state. The Chinese burn coal for fuel. Chang Ss-Hsunents in 976 the
chain drive for use in a mechanical clock. The Vikings, ly Eric the Red,
set up a camp on Greenland in 982, establishing a largerony three years
later. The Vikings, this time led by Leif Ericson (leson of Eric the
Red), reach North America. A hospital in Baghdad isnded in 977; it
employs 24 physicians and contains a surgery and aartment for eye
disorders. Dar al-ilm, a science library is Cairo E, is founded in
1005.

 

Ingoing Cycle: 975 - 1425 A.D.

By A.D. 1054, doctrinal, political, and geographical diffces finally led
to a schism or separation of the church into the Romanholic Church in
the West and the Eastern Orthodox Church in the Easte split further
weakened the Byzantine Empire that had faced attacks frumerous peoples
since its founding. In Europe the outstanding histol symbol of the
ingoing period of withdrawal is seen in the Black Deatat swept across
Europe destroying about a fourth of the populationother landmark
process on the 450year abstracting 3rd Ray ingoing c is seen in the
economic breakdown and regress that occurred as a re of a series of
Merchant and Guild disputes, civil wand strikes.


1st sub-ray period: 975-1039

 

2nd sub-ray period: 1039-1103

In A.D. 1071 northern European people called Normans sd the Byzantine
lands in southern Italy. Venice, an Italian trading cityeed to help the
Byzantine's efforts to regain the lands in return for trg privileges in
Constantinople. the attempt failed, however, and the Btines soon lost
control of trade, badly weakening an economy already strained by war.

3rd sub-ray pe: 1103-1167


4th sub-ray period: 1167-1231

In A.D. 1204 Christian soldiers from Western Europeeed to help the
Venetians attack Constantinople. For three days the akers burned and
looted the city, stealing and destroying priceless manusts and works of
art. The actions were so brutal that Pope Innocent IIIlicly condemned
them. The western Christians established "a Laempire" in
Constantinople.

5th sub-ray period: 1231-1295

The 5th sub-period produces the great landmark person of era, the great
initiate of science, Roger Baco214-1294). His most important
mathematical contribution is the application of geoy to optics. He
said:-Mathematics is the door and the key to the sciencen 1257, perhaps
largely due to ill health, Bacon left the University oford and entered
the Order of Friars Minor. However he continued his interin the sciences
and this was not appreciated by his superiors. Bacon wrto Pope Clement
IV in 1266, writing what looks remarkably similar to a grproposal that a
mathematician or scientist might make today. His osal was for an
encyclopaedia of all the sciences worked on by a tea collaborators,
coordinated by a body in the Church. Pope Clement IV,ever, not being
accustomed to receive proposals of this nature, misunders what Bacon was
proposing, believing rather that Bacon's proposed encycedia of science
already existed. He asked to see it and Bacon, who conot disobey the
Pope, rapidly composed the Opus maius (Great Work), the minus (Smaller
Work) and the Opus tertium (Third Work).

This remarkable achievement was carried out in st since Bacon's
superiors were violently opposed to what he was doing. n was aiming to
show the Pope that sciences had a rightful rol the university
curriculum. He wrote down in Opus maius an astounding cction of ideas.
In 1268 Pope Clement IV died and Bacon's chances of seeins great project
come to fruition vanished. Around 1278 Bacon was pn prison by his
fellow Franciscans. The charge being of suspectovelties in his
teaching. Clearly from his writings Bacon did not ly refrain from
putting forward his views after this. They were as aggively stated in
his last writings of 1293 as at any time in his life.

The Byzantine people resisted the rule of thetern Christians
successfully reestablished their own culture in A.D. 1261.

6th sub-ray pe: 1295-1359


Years of fighting had severely weakened the Byzantineire. Soon Serbs
and Bulgars took over Balkan territory. New invaders frontral Asia, the
Ottoman Turks, attacked the eastern provinces. Be late thirteen
hundreds the Byzantine Empire consisted only of Constanple and part of
Greece.

7th sub-ray period: 1359-1423

About 100,000 people still lived in the capital cif the Byzantine
Empire, Constantinople; food became increasingly sca and wealth was
gone. For a thousand years the Byzantine Empire had ected Christian
lands to its north. With the Fall of Constantinople, .D. 1453 by the
Ottomans, central Europe lay open to attack by Islamic forces.

 

Outgoing Cycle 1425 - 1875 A.D.

The overseas discoveries of the 15th century shattered walls that had
confined Europe throughout the Middle Ages and thech of universal
history began. But although European expansion in the of Exploration
laid the foundations for Western ascendancy over the res the world, The
spectacular 'Rise of the West' over the Old world civations occurred
under this cycle. The first great landmark figure (c. - 1468) is the
German Printer Johannes Gutenberg a craftsman from Mainermany. Between
1430 and 1444 he was in Strasbourg, probably working goldsmith, and
here he may have begun printing. In 1438 he entered a ract with three
others to develop a refined printing technique and becthe inventor of
moveable-type mechanical printing in Europe. He ted the 42-line
Gutenberg Bible (c.1455) but in the end he lost a sfrom one of his
creditors, who confiscated the type for the Bible. The left Gutenberg
financially ruined. Aided by Konrad Humery, he was abl set up another
press, but little is known of his work thereafter. Theact of printing
was enormous - it led to an almost instant mass prodon of books and
truly initiated the information age. The Reformation, tenaissance, and
the scientific period of the 17th century can hardly be cmplated without
printed books. After the deletion of the population ofope in the 14th
century from the Black Death the cities and towns reb with vigor and
vitality. This is the period of the High Renaiss the Scientific
Revolution and the Age of Overseas Expansion. Perhaone of the most
illuminating symbols of the modtriumphal progress of Western
civilization to a position of worldwide hegemony in itdern age is the
three-mast square-rigged sailing-ship. Suffice itsay the 450year
outgoing period of the lesser cycle of the 3rd ray cycle uced one of the
greatest ages of great discovery and illuminatif all time.



1st sub-period: 1425-1487

The 1st sub-ray period inaugurates the period we now the Scientific
Revolution. It entailed a collision between provocative products of the
human intellect and the enduring power of orthodoxy.

Born in Poland in 1473, the monumental person of the 1st ray period, the
"man who turned the heavens upside down," is NicolCopernicus. The
Copernican universe, revised, corrected and expandeduld be the most
revolutionary scientific idea in the annuals of modernilization until
Darwin's theory of natural selection in the 19th century.

Movable type was reinvented in Europe around 1440 and thetenberg 42-line
Bible was printed just a year after the fall of Constanple on May 29th
1453. Many Greek-speaking scholars escaped to the Wend brought with
them classical manuscripts in Greek along with the abilio translate the
ancient writiinto Latin.


2nd sub-period: 1487-1551

Christopher Columbus was born at Genova. He went to sea a early age, and
in 1478 he settled in Portugal. Believing that Asia d be reached by
sailing westward, he sought financial assistance unsusfully for some
years, but finally secured patronage of the King and Quof Spain. While
Columbus set out from Spain to find a westward rout Asia, he found
America instead, thus becoming the first historicallyortant European
discoverer of the New World. His three ships - the Sanaria, the Nina,
and the Pinta - departed on August 3, 1492 from Spain; tsighted land on
October 12. In his four voyages he failed to find a pge to Asia; for
this reason he was overshadowed in his own time by VascoGama who opened
a sea route to India.

Publication of Copernicus's heliocentric theory and Veus's anatomy in
A.D. 1543 produced one of the most remarkable years in puhing during the
era of the Scientific Revolution. Significant to note, u the 2nd ray of
the 2nd period in 1494 the first paper mill in England appears.

This is the era of the great Swiss alchemist and initiataler Paracelsus
(1493-1541. He pioneered many practices such as pretion of medical
compounds.


3rd sub-period: 1551-1615

Under the 3rd sub-ray period we find a number of monume lives of great
initiates dedicated to science. Danish nobleman Tycho Br(1546-1601) was
the most meticulous observer prior to the advent of the scope. Next, we
find the great mathematical genius and assistant of TyBrahe, Johannes
Kepler (1571-1630). He discovers that planets move in llipse and this
notion changed the course of astronomy. Mathematiciansroduced various
symbols and conventions, including the cross as a mplication sign,
letters for constants and variables and Exponents. Theseatly simplified
the communication of mathematical ideas and made mathics a universal
language.

Another monumental person of the 3rd sub-ray period is great initiate
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) and his theory of inductivasoning that is
taught to this day. Bacon argued that natural sciemust arise from
exhaustive examination of objects and phenomene also find the
historical figure of Baruch Spinoza (1632 - 1677) the grerd ray initiate
and Dutch Philosopher. Baruch Spinoza, philosopher and togian, was born
in Amsterdam. His deep interest in optics, the new astro, and Cartesian
philosophy made him unpopular, and he was expelled from tewish community
in 1656. In 1673 he refused the professorship of philos at Heidelberg,
in order to keep his independence. Spinoza ranks as a m thinker in the
rationalist tradition, and his major works 'Tractatus thgico-politicus'
(1670) and 'Ethics' (1677) are classics of Western philoy. Spinoza held
that man's happiness consists in coming to understand theth that he is a
tiny part ofall-inclusive pantheistic God.
(Pantheism = belief that God and the entire universe ane and the same
thing).

4th sub-period: 1615-1679

Naturally, as well, one of the key historical persons of 4th ray period
is the initiate Galileo (1564-1642). Galileo's oduction of the
astronomical telescope, the landmark monument of the ein 1609 changed
astronomy forever. No single event embodied the 4th ray sm, battle, and
confrontation of the old orthodoxy and the new ntific ideas as
dramatically as the persecution of Galileo by Catholic Ch authorities in
1633 for his all-too-vivid defense of Copernicanmology. Galileo
renounced his beliefs under force but the spirit he repreed could not be
subdued. Throughout the western world a new and excitsensibility had
arrived. This is the era of the compound microscopeerhaps the most
famous early microscope experier was Antoni van Leeuwenhoek
(1632-1723). He achieved magnification 250 times and aished Europe by
revealing the structure of many previously invisible obj. A list of the
key inventions and discoveries of the 4th period are given as follows:

1619:s of planetary motions: Kepler
1614: Logarithms: Napier
1618rculation of the blood: Harvey
16Analytical geometry: Descartes
1642: Adding machine: Pascal
1 Mercury barometer: Torricelli
1657: Pendulum clock: Huygens
1662: Pcal properties of gases: Boyle
1663: Air pump: Guericke
1665: Differential and gral calculus: Newton, Leibniz
1666: Law of gravitation: Newton

5th sub-period: 1679-1743

In Europe by the time of the 5th period of the 3rd ray, rise of science
had transformed the thinking of educated men andtributed to the
liberation from ancient dogmas. Intellectual pluraliecame the norm.
Richness, variety, vigor and a readiness to grapple wity new thoughts,
inventions or novelty distinguished the cultural life urope. No other
part of the world exhibited anything like such an advaous spirit. For
the first time, therefore, Europe began to pullad of the other
civilizations of the Old World. 5th sub-ray period coincides
historically with what is termed in science as the AgeNewton. This is
the era of the great initiate Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1. Newton was an
extraordinary occultist, physicist and mathematician. Mscientists made
important contributions providing ever more sophisted mathematical
descriptions of natural phenomena and elaborating mnistic theories
that explained processes in terms of motion of basic pcles. It was an
age in which careful, systematic observation woulansform western
understanding of planetary motion, microscopic entities, human body and
life itself. The mercury thermometer is introduced and tahrenheit scale
by Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit (1686-1736) the German phist. A critical
figure is the enigmatic John Flamsteed (1646-1719) wstudistronomy on his
own without the help of teachers. Flamsteed began systic observations
in 1671. On 4 March 1675 the King appointed Flamsteis astronomical
observer by Royal Warrant. The Royal Observatory at Greeh was built and
equipped for his observations and he began obser there in 1676.
Flamsteed was a skilled observer and had a number of obseg programmes at
the Royal Observatory to answeror questions. Among his other
achievements was the fact that Flamsteed invented the con projection, an
important projection of the sphonto a plane which is used in
cartography. Issac Newton required data for his understng of the orbit
of the Moon, a difficult problem to which Newton applies universal law
of gravity. Flamsteed never quite seemed to understand wNewton required
and the two were not on the best of terms, in fFlamsteed was a
perfectionist and was not an easy man to get on wiPossessed of an
attitude that can only be described as uncompromising, he an intemperate
man even by the standards of an intemperate age. The partar and enduring
subject of his passion was Edmond Halley. The lthirty years of
Flamsteed's extensive correspondence is infused with verative remarks
about the man who should have been his most natural ally is hard to say
exactly why Flamsteed was so bitter towards Halley but r personalities
certainly clashed while there must have been a certain prsional jealousy
between them. The latter part of Flamsteed's life passed ontroversy over
the publication of his excellent observations. He strugglo withhold them
until completed, but they were urgently needed by Isaawton and Edmond
Halley, among others.

Newton, through thyal Society, led the movement
for their immediate publication. In 1704 Prince George onmark undertook
the cost of publication, and, despite the prince'ath in 1708 and
Flamsteed's objections, the incomplete observations werited by Halley,
and 400 copies were printed in 1712. Flamsteed later man to burn 300 of
them. Flamsteed did publish his star cataloguetoria Coelestis
Britannica in 1725 containing data on 3000 stars. It li more stars and
gave their positions considerably more accurately than other previous
publication had done. It was ironical that his grea enemy, Halley,
should succeed him as the second Astronomer Royal.

6th sub-period: 1743-1817

One of the important historical figures to note under duration of the
6th period is Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794) trench scientist
who is regarded as the father of modern chemistry. He oduced the term
oxygen, and he formulated the law of conservation of mr, proving that
when a burning substance combines with oxygen the weightthe products of
combustion equals the original weight. He was guillotinering the French
Revolution. We also must note G. W. F. Hegel (1770831) the German
Philosopher. Hegel was the creator of a philoscal system that
influenced the development of Existentialism and Marx George Wilhelm
Friederich Hegel was born in Stuttgart, Germany. He ied theology at
Tubingen, and in 1801 edited with the philosopher Scheg the 'Critical
Journal of Philosophy', in which he outlined his system wits emphasis on
reason rather than the Romantic intution of Schelling, w he attacked in
his first major work 'The Phenomenology of the Mind'. Hen published his
'Science of Logic' and the 'Encyclopedia of the Philosoal Sciences' in
which he explained his threesome system of logic, philos of nature, and
mind. He became professor in Heidelberg (1816) and Ber(1818). Hegel's
'Idealistic philosophy' explained the world as the expion of a higher
spiritual reality which develops in a dialectical procehat swings from
thesis to antithesis and back again towards a higher synthesis.

Pierre-Simon Laplace, (1749-1827) the French astronomed physicist who
applied Newtonian theory of gravitation to the entire sosystem. He also
published works on probability including supplemenealing with the
determination of the masses of Jupiter, Saturn and Ur; triangulation
methods in surveying; and prob of geodesy in particular the
determination of the meri of France.


7th sub-period: 1817-1875

Under the III/7 in the field of communications telogy and modern
invention we find the landmark life of Ernst Werner Siem(1816-1892) the
German industrialist who established telegraph fries in London,
St.Petersburg, Vienna, and Paris, and laid cables acrose Mediterranean
Sea.

Under the III/7 period we find the life work and figuresocial reformer
and revolutionary Karl Heinrich Marx (1818 - 1883) Germhilosopher Born
in Trier, Germany, Marx studied law at Bonn and Berlin, book up history,
and philosophy. He edited a radical newspaper, and afte was suppressed
he moved to Paris (1843). In 1848, with Engels as his clt collaborator,
he wrote the Communist Manifesto, which attacked the stat the instrument
of oppression, and religion and culture as ideologie the capitalist
class. In 1849 he settled in London where he studied ecics. Marx' main
work "The Capital" is a critical analysis of the capist system. Karl
Marx interpreted history as a neverending struggle ben classes which
could only be resolved after a revolution would result idictatorship of
the working class that would abolish the class sysaltogether. His
revolutionary ideas formed the foundations of communist pes all over the
world.

In the field of science we find the figure of s Clerk Maxwell
(1831-1879) who was born in Edinburgh. He is generallyarded as one of
the greatest physicists the world has ever seen. Hisearches united
electricity and magnetism into the concept of the electronetic field. He
discovered that light is an electromagnetic wave. Hisory that when a
charged particle is accelerated, the radiation pred has the same
velocity as that of light paved the way for Einstein'ecial theory of
relativity.

Another important keynote person in the field of scienceCharles Darwin,
(1809 - 1882) the English Naturalist. Darwin is known ae discoverer of
natural selection. Charles Darwin was born in Shrery, England. He
studied medicine at Edinburgh, then biology at Cambridge 1831 he became
the naturalist on HMS Beagle, which was to make a scientisurvey of South
American waters, and returned in 1836. By 1846 he hablished several
works on his geological and zoological discoveries, butdevoted most of
his time to his major work 'On the Origin of Species eans of Natural
Selection' (1859). He postulated that natural selectios the agent for
the transmutation of organism during evolution. He thenked on a series
of supplemental treatises, including 'The Descent of' (1871), which
postulated the descent of the human race from the anthropgroup. At first
Darwin was attacked as an infidel atheist declaring the e a lie, but he
replied that it increased God's grandeur to believe thhe universe had
been created with evolution built in.

 

Outgoing peak: 1875

The landmark event in communion technology, after tedious
experimentation the Bell telephone, it carried itsst intelligible
sentence in the spring of 1876. The key invention of thelitude or crest
of the 3rd ray cycle (c.1875) is, therefore the telephonlexander Graham
Bell (1847-1922) was the Canadian inventor of the telne for which he
was granted a patent in 1876. In 1866 young Bell carried experiments to
determine how vowel sounds are produced. A book, descri experiments in
combining the notes of electrically driven tuning s to make vowel
sounds, gave him the idea of telegraphic speech. Later,ing experiments
with his assistant Watson with the telegraph, Bell reasonhat it would be
possible to pick up all sounds of the human voice on the harmonic telegraph.

The initiate Thomas Alva Edison, (1847-1931) was theatest American
Inventor and another important monumental figure of tha. Edison first
learned how to operate a telegraph while selling newspa as a young boy
at railroad stations. In New York City in 1869, asupervisor in a
stock-ticker firm, he made improvements on the stock-tickLater he opened
his own laboratory in Newark, N.J., where he made importimprovements in
telegraphy and on the typewriter, and invented the carbransmitter that
made Alexander Bell's telephone practical. In 1876 he m his laboratory
to Menlo Park, N.J., where he invented the firstnograph and the
prototype of the incandescent electric light bulb. g interested in
systems for distributing electric power from central gening stations he
formed his own company which later merged with anothempany to become
General Electric Co. By the time he died he had accumud an impressive
list of 1093 patents (motion picture inventions; electry applications;
light bulb; electric typewriter development; dictaphonemeograph; etc),
but Thomas Edison's most important contribution waat he organized
systematic research on a very large scale with hundred people working
together.

Ingoing Cycle: 1875 - 2325 A.D.

This is the 450-year period of the accelerated withal, decline and
breakdown of the previously built civilized forms of worllture, thought,
philosophy and economy prior to rebuilding the new cived and suitable
forms on the fresh 900-year cycle commencing in 2325 In Africa, the
great European empires began to be built only around 1and were almost
all gone by about 1960.

1st sub-ray period: 1875-1939

The key economic figure inaugurating the ingoing perioddecline is John
Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) the English economist knoor his economic
theory on the causes of prolonged unemployment. Hiassic book 'The
General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money' 6) is generally
regarded as one of the most influential social science tise of the 20th
Century, in that it quickly and permanently changed the whe world looked
at the economy and the role of government in society. Anmeration of key
historical figures, revolutions, philosophy and worents of the 1st
sub-ray period include:

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970) the English Philosopheertrand Russell
ranks among the greatest philosophers of the 1900's and iown as the most
important logician since Aristotle. "Principia Mathematicat; demonstrates
that all pure mathematics follows from premises that arrictly logical.
Bertrand Russell was an outspoken pacifist and adved very liberal
attidudes towards sex, marriage and methods of education.

Friederich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) the German Philoso. Nietzsche was
born in Roecken, Germany. In 1869 he accepted their of classical
philology at Basel. Nietzsche was one of the most influal philosophers
since Kant. He dedicated his first book 'The Birth of Tra' to his friend
Wagner, whose operas he regarded as the true successors teek tragedy. He
determined to give his age new values, Schopenhaue'will to power'
serving as the basic principle. For Nietzsche the will twer had ethical
primacy and represented the noble man's ultimate otive. Nietzsche
denounced Christianity for resenting this world, and for igning all whom
it hates to hell. In his major work 'Thus Spake Zarathusthe presents his
own ideal, the passionate man who uses his emotions inative energy, a
man he called 'Uebermensch' or 'superman'.

V. N. Lenin (1870 24) the Statesman of the USSR.
Lenin - whose real name was Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov - the author of a
revolutionary theory that called for the dictatorship oe working class
and the central authority of the Communist party,ideology called
'Leninism'. Ulyanov studied at Kazan, and Petersburg whhe graduated in
law. From 1897 to 1900 he was exiled to Siberir revolutionary
activities. At the Second Congress of the Russian Social cratic Party in
1905 he caused the split between Bolshevik and Menshevik ions. After the
February revolution in 1917 he returned to Petrograd frurich and urged
immediate seizure of political power with the slogall power to he
Soviets'.
Lenin assumed the leadership of the October revolutihat lead to the
establishment of the Soviet state in Russia in 1917nin immediately
introduced a communist economy and nationalized factoriesnes, banks, and
public utilities. He took Russia out of World Wabut a civil war
continued to ravage Russia until 1921. By that time economy was in
shambles and Lenin called for a temporary retreatm so-called war
communism. Following a revolt by the sailors of Kronsthe introduced a
New Economic Policy (NEP) which returned some induss and trades to
private enterprise. During the last year of his life Lenis paralyzed; he
died of a stroke in January of 1924.

Mao Tse-Tung (1893 - 1976) the Chinese Statesman. Mao the Leader and
revolutionary strategist of the Chinese communist revoon, born in the
village of Shaoshan, Hunan Province, China. He gradd from Changsha
teachers' training college. He then worked at Beijing Unsity and became
a Marxist and a founding member of the Chinese Communiarty (1921). He
concentrated on political work among the peasants of hative province,
and advocated a rural revolution, creating a soviet inan province in
1928. After the break with the Kuomintang in 1927, hisces were driven
out from Hunan. Mao led his guerrilla army on a 6,000es 'Long March'
from Hunan in the South to Yenan in northern China. In Y he organized a
revolutionary base strong enough to fight the Japaneseaders and later
the Nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-check.

Under the III/1 we also find the figure of the "man of st" dictator
Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953) of the USSR. Born in GoGeorgia, Stalin
studied briefly at the Tiflis Orthodox Theological SeminaLater he became
active in the revolutionary underground, and was twiceled to Siberia.
After the October Revolution in 1917 he became peos commissar for
nationalities in the first Soviet government. In 192 became general
secretary of the Party Central Committee, a powerful posich enabled him
to gradually isolate and destroy his political rivals a Lenin's death.
In the 1930's Stalin became virtual dictator of tSSR. In 1928 he
launched the first 5-year plan for the forceful and rapidustrialization
of the economy. He also initiated a disastrous collvization of the
peasantry that led to wide-spread famine in the Ukrainetween 1934 and
1938 he inaugurated a massive purge of the partymed forces, and
intelligentsia in which millions of so-called 'enemies he people' were
imprisoned, exiled, or shot. After the German inva Stalin, as war
leader, assumed the title of generalissimo. The victorer Nazi Germany
resulted in Soviet control over the liberated countriesEastern Europe.
>From 1945 he resumed his repressive measures at home, after his death
Stalin, was denounced by Khrushchev, for crimes against the Party.

2nd sub-ray period: 1939-2005

Under the 2nd ray period we find the life of Mahatma Gi (1869 - 1948)
the Indian Leader. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nnalist movement
against British rule. Remarkably, in the midst of our moiolent century,
he prevailed in battle without guns and swords. His t Mahatma (Great
Soul) connotes his spiritual reputation. Gandhi used his gious power for
social reforms and the abolition of the caste system.dhi was born in
India but studied law in London, and in 1893 went to Soufrica, where he
spent 20 years opposing discriminatory legislation againndians. In 1914
he returned to India, where he supported the Home Rule mont and where he
organized nonviolent civil disobedience campaigns as a m to gain Indian
independence. In 1930 he led a 200 miles march to the seacollect salt in
defiance of the government monopoly. In 1931 he attendhe London Round
Table Conference on Indian constitutional reform. After iendence (1947),
he tried to stop the Hindu--Muslim conflict in Bengal, a cy which led to
his assassination in Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.

The 2nd ray note of the ingoing 3rd ray period producee philosophy of
existentialism. A key historical figure to note there is Jean-Paul
Sartre (1905 - 1980) the French Philosopher. Sartrnks as the most
versatile writer and dominant influence in threcades of French
intellectual life. His most important work is 'L'eet le neant' or
'Being and Nothingness'. Sartrscribes human consiousness as
'no-thingness', in opposition teing' or 'thingness', because
consiousness is not-matter and therefore escapes determm. Consiousness
it is not completely determined by previously existing cs, therefore it
has free will, and it becomes each individual's choicemake his or her
own life meaningful. Sartre's philosophy of existentim expressed his
belief that the world was meaningless for man and that thdividual should
find some direction and meaning for his ownsonal life.


3rd sub-ray period: 2005-2067

The third sub-ray period marks the time of the peak intfication of the
wrecking process of the third ray's ingoing period. effects of this
force will demonstrate in the field of the global economystemic unit as
the old material order breaks down in preparation for thiversal economy
and the new methods of financial enterprise, industry ahe distribution
of goods in the coming civilization and new cult Currently, the
destructive, wrecking or dismantling "in-breath," 3rd suy period is now
emerging into a dominant planetary position and will come to strike the
initial "death blows" to our present modern materialc civilization.
Think this out because the "third of the third" in theies will be the
most dominant, as we know, utilizing the Law of Correspnce. The global
systemic economic Unit will now rapidly commence with process of its
dismantling and wrecking prior to its rebuilding on aher turn of the
spiral at the next stated cycle of outgoing ray activiThe first death
knell has just been sounded to commence the cycle. Over e hundred years
must yet run until the 3rd Ray is, once again, on its pose, building and
constructive, or oing breath.


4th sub-ray period: 2067-2131

5th sub-ray period: 2131-2195

6th sub-ray period: 2195-2259

7th sub-ray period: 2259-2325

During the 7th sub-ray period the world will undergo a fiial adjustment;
the "principle of sharing" will be a recognized motiva concept of the
new civilization. The principle of barter and of exce will control.
Owing to the development of atomic energy on behal human welfare,
national currencies will have been largely superseded, nnly by a system
of barter but by a universal monetary exchange - reentative of the
bartered goods when they are relatively small and unitant - and by a
planned scale of related values. National material as and the needed
commodities will all be provided for under an entirely system. Private
enterprise will still exist, but will be regulatehe great public
utilities, the major material resources and the sources lanetary wealth
- iron, steel, oil and wheat, for instance - will beed in the first
place by a governing, controlling international group; will, however,
be prepared for international consumption by national gs chosen by the
people and under internati direction.


Outgoing Cycle 2325 A.D. - 2775 A.D.

It reaches its high-water mark or peak period of activin the year 2775
A.D. and then begins to decline in influence, curve in uptself and thus,
return. Under the 3rd Ray the new structure of materialationships will
be built - a most difficult task, owing to the evil &quoll" of the
substantial assets and the continued control, even thouat that time in
the distant future, greatly lessened, of human selfish. The principle
of barter and of exchange (to the benefit of all conce) will control.

1st sub-period: 1425-1487

The 1st sub-ray period inaugurates the period we now the Scientific
Revolution. It entailed a collision between provocative products of the
human intellect and the enduring power of orthodoxy.

Born in Poland in 1473, the monumental person of the 1st ray period, the
"man who turned the heavens upside down," is NicolCopernicus. The
Copernican universe, revised, corrected and expandeduld be the most
revolutionary scientific idea in the annuals of modernilization until
Darwin's theory of natural selection in the 19th century.

Movable type was reinvented in Europe around 1440 and thetenberg 42-line
Bible was printed just a year after the fall of Constanple on May 29th
1453. Many Greek-speaking scholars escaped to the Wend brought with
them classical manuscripts in Greek along with the abilio translate the
ancient writiinto Latin.


2nd sub-period: 1487-1551

Christopher Columbus was born at Genova. He went to sea a early age, and
in 1478 he settled in Portugal. Believing that Asia d be reached by
sailing westward, he sought financial assistance unsusfully for some
years, but finally secured patronage of the King and Quof Spain. While
Columbus set out from Spain to find a westward rout Asia, he found
America instead, thus becoming the first historicallyortant European
discoverer of the New World. His three ships - the Sanaria, the Nina,
and the Pinta - departed on August 3, 1492 from Spain; tsighted land on
October 12. In his four voyages he failed to find a pge to Asia; for
this reason he was overshadowed in his own time by VascoGama who opened
a sea route to India.

Publication of Copernicus's heliocentric theory and Veus's anatomy in
A.D. 1543 produced one of the most remarkable years in puhing during the
era of the Scientific Revolution. Significant to note, u the 2nd ray of
the 2nd period in 1494 the first paper mill in England appears.

This is the era of the great Swiss alchemist and initiataler Paracelsus
(1493-1541. He pioneered many practices such as pretion of medical
compounds.


3rd sub-period: 1551-1615

Under the 3rd sub-ray period we find a number of monume lives of great
initiates dedicated to science. Danish nobleman Tycho Br(1546-1601) was
the most meticulous observer prior to the advent of the scope. Next, we
find the great mathematical genius and assistant of TyBrahe, Johannes
Kepler (1571-1630). He discovers that planets move in llipse and this
notion changed the course of astronomy. Mathematiciansroduced various
symbols and conventions, including the cross as a mplication sign,
letters for constants and variables and Exponents. Theseatly simplified
the communication of mathematical ideas and made mathics a universal
language.

Another monumental person of the 3rd sub-ray period is great initiate
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) and his theory of inductivasoning that is
taught to this day. Bacon argued that natural sciemust arise from
exhaustive examination of objects and phenomene also find the
historical figure of Baruch Spinoza (1632 - 1677) the grerd ray initiate
and Dutch Philosopher. Baruch Spinoza, philosopher and togian, was born
in Amsterdam. His deep interest in optics, the new astro, and Cartesian
philosophy made him unpopular, and he was expelled from tewish community
in 1656. In 1673 he refused the professorship of philos at Heidelberg,
in order to keep his independence. Spinoza ranks as a m thinker in the
rationalist tradition, and his major works 'Tractatus thgico-politicus'
(1670) and 'Ethics' (1677) are classics of Western philoy. Spinoza held
that man's happiness consists in coming to understand theth that he is a
tiny part ofall-inclusive pantheistic God.
(Pantheism = belief that God and the entire universe ane and the same
thing).

4th sub-period: 1615-1679

Naturally, as well, one of the key historical persons of 4th ray period
is the initiate Galileo (1564-1642). Galileo's oduction of the
astronomical telescope, the landmark monument of the ein 1609 changed
astronomy forever. No single event embodied the 4th ray sm, battle, and
confrontation of the old orthodoxy and the new ntific ideas as
dramatically as the persecution of Galileo by Catholic Ch authorities in
1633 for his all-too-vivid defense of Copernicanmology. Galileo
renounced his beliefs under force but the spirit he repreed could not be
subdued. Throughout the western world a new and excitsensibility had
arrived. This is the era of the compound microscopeerhaps the most
famous early microscope experier was Antoni van Leeuwenhoek
(1632-1723). He achieved magnification 250 times and aished Europe by
revealing the structure of many previously invisible obj. A list of the
key inventions and discoveries of the 4th period are given as follows:

1619:s of planetary motions: Kepler
1614: Logarithms: Napier
1618rculation of the blood: Harvey
16Analytical geometry: Descartes
1642: Adding machine: Pascal
1 Mercury barometer: Torricelli
1657: Pendulum clock: Huygens
1662: Pcal properties of gases: Boyle
1663: Air pump: Guericke
1665: Differential and gral calculus: Newton, Leibniz
1666: Law of gravitation: Newton

5th sub-period: 1679-1743

In Europe by the time of the 5th period of the 3rd ray, rise of science
had transformed the thinking of educated men andtributed to the
liberation from ancient dogmas. Intellectual pluraliecame the norm.
Richness, variety, vigor and a readiness to grapple wity new thoughts,
inventions or novelty distinguished the cultural life urope. No other
part of the world exhibited anything like such an advaous spirit. For
the first time, therefore, Europe began to pullad of the other
civilizations of the Old World. 5th sub-ray period coincides
historically with what is termed in science as the AgeNewton. This is
the era of the great initiate Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1. Newton was an
extraordinary occultist, physicist and mathematician. Mscientists made
important contributions providing ever more sophisted mathematical
descriptions of natural phenomena and elaborating mnistic theories
that explained processes in terms of motion of basic pcles. It was an
age in which careful, systematic observation woulansform western
understanding of planetary motion, microscopic entities, human body and
life itself. The mercury thermometer is introduced and tahrenheit scale
by Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit (1686-1736) the German phist. A critical
figure is the enigmatic John Flamsteed (1646-1719) wstudistronomy on his
own without the help of teachers. Flamsteed began systic observations
in 1671. On 4 March 1675 the King appointed Flamsteis astronomical
observer by Royal Warrant. The Royal Observatory at Greeh was built and
equipped for his observations and he began obser there in 1676.
Flamsteed was a skilled observer and had a number of obseg programmes at
the Royal Observatory to answeror questions. Among his other
achievements was the fact that Flamsteed invented the con projection, an
important projection of the sphonto a plane which is used in
cartography. Issac Newton required data for his understng of the orbit
of the Moon, a difficult problem to which Newton applies universal law
of gravity. Flamsteed never quite seemed to understand wNewton required
and the two were not on the best of terms, in fFlamsteed was a
perfectionist and was not an easy man to get on wiPossessed of an
attitude that can only be described as uncompromising, he an intemperate
man even by the standards of an intemperate age. The partar and enduring
subject of his passion was Edmond Halley. The lthirty years of
Flamsteed's extensive correspondence is infused with verative remarks
about the man who should have been his most natural ally is hard to say
exactly why Flamsteed was so bitter towards Halley but r personalities
certainly clashed while there must have been a certain prsional jealousy
between them. The latter part of Flamsteed's life passed ontroversy over
the publication of his excellent observations. He strugglo withhold them
until completed, but they were urgently needed by Isaawton and Edmond
Halley, among others. Newton, through the Royal Societed the movement
for their immediate publication. In 1704 Prince George onmark undertook
the cost of publication, and, despite the prince'ath in 1708 and
Flamsteed's objections, the incomplete observations werited by Halley,
and 400 copies were printed in 1712. Flamsteed later man to burn 300 of
them. Flamsteed did publish his star cataloguetoria Coelestis
Britannica in 1725 containing data on 3000 stars. It li more stars and
gave their positions considerably more accurately than other previous
publication had done. It was ironical that his grea enemy, Halley,
should succeed him as the second Astronomer Royal.

6th sub-period: 1743-1817

One of the important historical figures to note under duration of the
6th period is Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794) trench scientist
who is regarded as the father of modern chemistry. He oduced the term
oxygen, and he formulated the law of conservation of mr, proving that
when a burning substance combines with oxygen the weightthe products of
combustion equals the original weight. He was guillotinering the French
Revolution. We also must note G. W. F. Hegel (1770831) the German
Philosopher. Hegel was the creator of a philoscal system that
influenced the development of Existentialism and Marx George Wilhelm
Friederich Hegel was born in Stuttgart, Germany. He ied theology at
Tubingen, and in 1801 edited with the philosopher Scheg the 'Critical
Journal of Philosophy', in which he outlined his system wits emphasis on
reason rather than the Romantic intution of Schelling, w he attacked in
his first major work 'The Phenomenology of the Mind'. Hen published his
'Science of Logic' and the 'Encyclopedia of the Philosoal Sciences' in
which he explained his threesome system of logic, philos of nature, and
mind. He became professor in Heidelberg (1816) and Ber(1818). Hegel's
'Idealistic philosophy' explained the world as the expion of a higher
spiritual reality which develops in a dialectical procehat swings from
thesis to antithesis and back again towards a higher synthesis.

Pierre-Simon Laplace, (1749-1827) the French astronomed physicist who
applied Newtonian theory of gravitation to the entire sosystem. He also
published works on probability including supplemenealing with the
determination of the masses of Jupiter, Saturn and Ur; triangulation
methods in surveying; and prob of geodesy in particular the
determination of the meri of France.


7th sub-period: 1817-1875

Under the III/7 in the field of communications telogy and modern
invention we find the landmark life of Ernst Werner Siem(1816-1892) the
German industrialist who established telegraph fries in London,
St.Petersburg, Vienna, and Paris, and laid cables acrose Mediterranean
Sea.

Under the III/7 period we find the life work and figuresocial reformer
and revolutionary Karl Heinrich Marx (1818 - 1883) Germhilosopher Born
in Trier, Germany, Marx studied law at Bonn and Berlin, book up history,
and philosophy. He edited a radical newspaper, and afte was suppressed
he moved to Paris (1843). In 1848, with Engels as his clt collaborator,
he wrote the Communist Manifesto, which attacked the stat the instrument
of oppression, and religion and culture as ideologie the capitalist
class. In 1849 he settled in London where he studied ecics. Marx' main
work "The Capital" is a critical analysis of the capist system. Karl
Marx interpreted history as a neverending struggle ben classes which
could only be resolved after a revolution would result idictatorship of
the working class that would abolish the class sysaltogether. His
revolutionary ideas formed the foundations of communist pes all over the
world.

In the field of science we find the figure of s Clerk Maxwell
(1831-1879) who was born in Edinburgh. He is generallyarded as one of
the greatest physicists the world has ever seen. Hisearches united
electricity and magnetism into the concept of the electronetic field. He
discovered that light is an electromagnetic wave. Hisory that when a
charged particle is accelerated, the radiation pred has the same
velocity as that of light paved the way for Einstein'ecial theory of
relativity.

Another important keynote person in the field of scienceCharles Darwin,
(1809 - 1882) the English Naturalist. Darwin is known ae discoverer of
natural selection. Charles Darwin was born in Shrery, England. He
studied medicine at Edinburgh, then biology at Cambridge 1831 he became
the naturalist on HMS Beagle, which was to make a scientisurvey of South
American waters, and returned in 1836. By 1846 he hablished several
works on his geological and zoological discoveries, butdevoted most of
his time to his major work 'On the Origin of Species eans of Natural
Selection' (1859). He postulated that natural selectios the agent for
the transmutation of organism during evolution. He thenked on a series
of supplemental treatises, including 'The Descent of' (1871), which
postulated the descent of the human race from the anthropgroup. At first
Darwin was attacked as an infidel atheist declaring the e a lie, but he
replied that it increased God's grandeur to believe thhe universe had
been created with evolution built in.

Outgoing peak: 1875

The landmark event in communion technology, after tedious
experimentation the Bell telephone, it carried itsst intelligible
sentence in the spring of 1876. The key invention of thelitude or crest
of the 3rd ray cycle (c.1875) is, therefore the telephonlexander Graham
Bell (1847-1922) was the Canadian inventor of the telne for which he
was granted a patent in 1876. In 1866 young Bell carried experiments to
determine how vowel sounds are produced. A book, descri experiments in
combining the notes of electrically driven tuning s to make vowel
sounds, gave him the idea of telegraphic speech. Later,ing experiments
with his assistant Watson with the telegraph, Bell reasonhat it would be
possible to pick up all sounds of the human voice on the harmonic telegraph.

The initiate Thomas Alva Edison, (1847-1931) was theatest American
Inventor and another important monumental figure of tha. Edison first
learned how to operate a telegraph while selling newspa as a young boy
at railroad stations. In New York City in 1869, asupervisor in a
stock-ticker firm, he made improvements on the stock-tickLater he opened
his own laboratory in Newark, N.J., where he made importimprovements in
telegraphy and on the typewriter, and invented the carbransmitter that
made Alexander Bell's telephone practical. In 1876 he m his laboratory
to Menlo Park, N.J., where he invented the firstnograph and the
prototype of the incandescent electric light bulb. g interested in
systems for distributing electric power from central gening stations he
formed his own company which later merged with anothempany to become
General Electric Co. By the time he died he had accumud an impressive
list of 1093 patents (motion picture inventions; electry applications;
light bulb; electric typewriter development; dictaphonemeograph; etc),
but Thomas Edison's most important contribution waat he organized
systematic research on a very large scale with hundred people working
together.

Ingoing Cycle: 1875 - 2325 A.D.

This is the 450-year period of the accelerated withal, decline and
breakdown of the previously built civilized forms of worllture, thought,
philosophy and economy prior to rebuilding the new cived and suitable
forms on the fresh 900-year cycle commencing in 2325 In Africa, the
great European empires began to be built only around 1and were almost
all gone by about 1960.

1st sub-ray period: 1875-1939

The key economic figure inaugurating the ingoing perioddecline is John
Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) the English economist knoor his economic
theory on the causes of prolonged unemployment. Hiassic book 'The
General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money' 6) is generally
regarded as one of the most influential social science tise of the 20th
Century, in that it quickly and permanently changed the whe world looked
at the economy and the role of government in society. Anmeration of key
historical figures, revolutions, philosophy and worents of the 1st
sub-ray period include:

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970) the English Philosopheertrand Russell
ranks among the greatest philosophers of the 1900's and iown as the most
important logician since Aristotle. "Principia Mathematicat; demonstrates
that all pure mathematics follows from premises that arrictly logical.
Bertrand Russell was an outspoken pacifist and adved very liberal
attidudes towards sex, marriage and methods of education.

Friederich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) the German Philoso. Nietzsche was
born in Roecken, Germany. In 1869 he accepted their of classical
philology at Basel. Nietzsche was one of the most influal philosophers
since Kant. He dedicated his first book 'The Birth of Tra' to his friend
Wagner, whose operas he regarded as the true successors teek tragedy. He
determined to give his age new values, Schopenhaue'will to power'
serving as the basic principle. For Nietzsche the will twer had ethical
primacy and represented the noble man's ultimate otive. Nietzsche
denounced Christianity for resenting this world, and for igning all whom
it hates to hell. In his major work 'Thus Spake Zarathusthe presents his
own ideal, the passionate man who uses his emotions inative energy, a
man he called 'Uebermensch' or 'superman'.

V. N. Lenin (1870 24) the Statesman of the USSR.
Lenin - whose real name was Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov - the author of a
revolutionary theory that called for the dictatorship oe working class
and the central authority of the Communist party,ideology called
'Leninism'. Ulyanov studied at Kazan, and Petersburg whhe graduated in
law. From 1897 to 1900 he was exiled to Siberir revolutionary
activities. At the Second Congress of the Russian Social cratic Party in
1905 he caused the split between Bolshevik and Menshevik ions. After the
February revolution in 1917 he returned to Petrograd frurich and urged
immediate seizure of political power with the slogall power to he
Soviets'.
Lenin assumed the leadership of the October revolutihat lead to the
establishment of the Soviet state in Russia in 1917nin immediately
introduced a communist economy and nationalized factoriesnes, banks, and
public utilities. He took Russia out of World Wabut a civil war
continued to ravage Russia until 1921. By that time economy was in
shambles and Lenin called for a temporary retreatm so-called war
communism. Following a revolt by the sailors of Kronsthe introduced a
New Economic Policy (NEP) which returned some induss and trades to
private enterprise. During the last year of his life Lenis paralyzed; he
died of a stroke in January of 1924.

Mao Tse-Tung (1893 - 1976) the Chinese Statesman. Mao the Leader and
revolutionary strategist of the Chinese communist revoon, born in the
village of Shaoshan, Hunan Province, China. He gradd from Changsha
teachers' training college. He then worked at Beijing Unsity and became
a Marxist and a founding member of the Chinese Communiarty (1921). He
concentrated on political work among the peasants of hative province,
and advocated a rural revolution, creating a soviet inan province in
1928. After the break with the Kuomintang in 1927, hisces were driven
out from Hunan. Mao led his guerrilla army on a 6,000es 'Long March'
from Hunan in the South to Yenan in northern China. In Y he organized a
revolutionary base strong enough to fight the Japaneseaders and later
the Nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-check.

Under the III/1 we also find the figure of the "man of st" dictator
Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953) of the USSR. Born in GoGeorgia, Stalin
studied briefly at the Tiflis Orthodox Theological SeminaLater he became
active in the revolutionary underground, and was twiceled to Siberia.
After the October Revolution in 1917 he became peos commissar for
nationalities in the first Soviet government. In 192 became general
secretary of the Party Central Committee, a powerful posich enabled him
to gradually isolate and destroy his political rivals a Lenin's death.
In the 1930's Stalin became virtual dictator of tSSR. In 1928 he
launched the first 5-year plan for the forceful and rapidustrialization
of the economy. He also initiated a disastrous collvization of the
peasantry that led to wide-spread famine in the Ukrainetween 1934 and
1938 he inaugurated a massive purge of the partymed forces, and
intelligentsia in which millions of so-called 'enemies he people' were
imprisoned, exiled, or shot. After the German inva Stalin, as war
leader, assumed the title of generalissimo. The victorer Nazi Germany
resulted in Soviet control over the liberated countriesEastern Europe.
>From 1945 he resumed his repressive measures at home, after his death
Stalin, was denounced by Khrushchev, for crimes against the Party.

2nd sub-ray period: 1939-2005

Under the 2nd ray period we find the life of Mahatma Gi (1869 - 1948)
the Indian Leader. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nnalist movement
against British rule. Remarkably, in the midst of our moiolent century,
he prevailed in battle without guns and swords. His t Mahatma (Great
Soul) connotes his spiritual reputation. Gandhi used his gious power for
social reforms and the abolition of the caste system.dhi was born in
India but studied law in London, and in 1893 went to Soufrica, where he
spent 20 years opposing discriminatory legislation againndians. In 1914
he returned to India, where he supported the Home Rule mont and where he
organized nonviolent civil disobedience campaigns as a m to gain Indian
independence. In 1930 he led a 200 miles march to the seacollect salt in
defiance of the government monopoly. In 1931 he attendhe London Round
Table Conference on Indian constitutional reform. After iendence (1947),
he tried to stop the Hindu--Muslim conflict in Bengal, a cy which led to
his assassination in Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.

The 2nd ray note of the ingoing 3rd ray period producee philosophy of
existentialism. A key historical figure to note there is Jean-Paul
Sartre (1905 - 1980) the French Philosopher. Sartrnks as the most
versatile writer and dominant influence in threcades of French
intellectual life. His most important work is 'L'eet le neant' or
'Being and Nothingness'. Sartrscribes human consiousness as
'no-thingness', in opposition teing' or 'thingness', because
consiousness is not-matter and therefore escapes determm. Consiousness
it is not completely determined by previously existing cs, therefore it
has free will, and it becomes each individual's choicemake his or her
own life meaningful. Sartre's philosophy of existentim expressed his
belief that the world was meaningless for man and that thdividual should
find some direction and meaning for his ownsonal life.


3rd sub-ray period: 2005-2067

The third sub-ray period marks the time of the peak intfication of the
wrecking process of the third ray's ingoing period. effects of this
force will demonstrate in the field of the global economystemic unit as
the old material order breaks down in preparation for thiversal economy
and the new methods of financial enterprise, industry ahe distribution
of goods in the coming civilization and new cult Currently, the
destructive, wrecking or dismantling "in-breath," 3rd suy period is now
emerging into a dominant planetary position and will come to strike the
initial "death blows" to our present modern materialc civilization.
Think this out because the "third of the third" in theies will be the
most dominant, as we know, utilizing the Law of Correspnce. The global
systemic economic Unit will now rapidly commence with process of its
dismantling and wrecking prior to its rebuilding on aher turn of the
spiral at the next stated cycle of outgoing ray activiThe first death
knell has just been sounded to commence the cycle. Over e hundred years
must yet run until the 3rd Ray is, once again, on its pose, building and
constructive, or oing breath.


4th sub-ray period: 2067-2131

5th sub-ray period: 2131-2195

6th sub-ray period: 2195-2259

7th sub-ray period: 2259-2325

During the 7th sub-ray period the world will undergo a fiial adjustment;
the "principle of sharing" will be a recognized motiva concept of the
new civilization. The principle of barter and of exce will control.
Owing to the development of atomic energy on behal human welfare,
national currencies will have been largely superseded, nnly by a system
of barter but by a universal monetary exchange - reentative of the
bartered goods when they are relatively small and unitant - and by a
planned scale of related values. National material as and the needed
commodities will all be provided for under an entirely system. Private
enterprise will still exist, but will be regulatehe great public
utilities, the major material resources and the sources lanetary wealth
- iron, steel, oil and wheat, for instance - will beed in the first
place by a governing, controlling international group; will, however,
be prepared for international consumption by national gs chosen by the
people and under internati direction.


Outgoing Cycle 2325 A.D. - 2775 A.D.

It reaches its high-water mark or peak period of activin the year 2775
A.D. and then begins to decline in influence, curve in uptself and thus,
return. Under the 3rd Ray the new structure of materialationships will
be built - a most difficult task, owing to the evil &quoll" of the
substantial assets and the continued control, even thouat that time in
the distant future, greatly lessened, of human selfish. The principle
of barter and of exchange (to the benefit of all conce) will control.

Nine Year Cycle

The third ray governs all cycles such as those of nine million years, nine hundred thousand years, nine thousand years, nine hundred years and nine years. In other words, all that originates on the third ray is controlled by spiral-cyclic efforts based upon the numer "9", and its multiples such as 9,90, 900, 9,000, 90,000, and 900,000.

 

Now, reflect on the fact, that the 3rd Ray is the personality ray of the Earth, the ray of the Mahachohan, and the ray of the third planetary centre - humanity, the Throat. The emanatory impulses of the third ray pulsate in a cyclic peak every nine years under the direction and inspiration of the third ray personality ray of our planetary Logos, Sanat Kumura and the direction of the Mahachohan R. This is the real reason behind the Occult fact that the Hierarchy meets in silent conclave every nine years:

At those times, when the Hierarchy meets in silent conclave, a part of God's vision, and His formulation of that vision for the immediate present, is revealed for the next nine year cycle. They then, in perfect freedom and with full mutual cooperation lay Their plans to bring about the desired objectives of the Heads of the Hierarchy, as They in Turn cooperate with still higher Forces and Knowers." [Esoteric Psychology II, 241-242]

Nine is the number of Humanity, the expression of the planetary throat centre. It is interesting to further note the numerology of the word Mahachohan. Let us do so:

M A H A C H O H A N
4+1+8+1+3+8+6+8+1+5 = (45) = 9

The numerical value of the 10 digits which compose the name equal "45" or "9", as (4+5 = 9). These are, in fact, the key figures of the third ray. The period of peak emergence, or the high-water mark of the third ray, is at 4.5 years which occurs half-way through its period of 9 years.. After that, the ray energy curves in upon itself, declines and returns to its source only to again, emerge on its outgoing period. Consider now, the letter "R", the initial and principle symbol or icon of the present Mahachohan. As you undoubtedly know, the names chosen by the Masters of Wisdom are hardly incidental or arbitrary. The letter "R" is the 18 letter of the english alphabet; it is the "canine" because its sound reminds one of the snarl. Its value is 9 because (1+8)=9.

The cycle of God's revelation of His Divine Plan on Earth, according to the Tibetan, occurs once every nine years and reveals, as just stated, the "formulation of the vision for the immediate present" for the next nine year cycle. We are almost half-way through the 9 year period of the Masters to bring about the desired objectives of the Heads of the Hierarchy in cooperation with Sanat Kumura, which began in 1996. The next Hierarchical Conclave is in the year2005 A.D. Here is a list of recent years, past and future for the nine year cycle:

c. Thee to Formulate a Plan
The third divine instinct or hidden inner trend is the urge to formulate a plan. It will be apparent that this urge grows out of, or is dependent upon, the previous two trends considered. It finds its microcosmic reflection in the many plans and projects of finite man as he lives his little life or runs busily about the planet in connection with his tiny personal affairs. It is this universal capacity to work and plan which is the guarantee that there exists in man the capacity to respond eventually and in group formation to God's plan, based on God's vision. All these basic, developing, divine instincts and expressions of God's consciousness and awareness find their embryonic reflections in our modern humanity. It is no part of my purpose to indicate my understanding of God's Plan. This is limited naturally by my capacity. Only dimly do I sense it, and only occasionally and faintly does the outline of God's stupendous objective dawn on my mind. This Plan can only be sensed, visioned and known in truth by the Hierarchy, and then only in group formation and by those Masters Who can function in full monadic consciousness. They alone are beginning to comprehend what it is. Suffice it for the rest of those in the Hierarchy - the initiates and disciples in their ordered ranks and various gradings - to cooperate with that immediate aspect of the Plan which they can grasp and which comes down to them through the inspired minds of their Directors at certain stated times, and in certain specific years. Such a year was 1933. Such another will be the year 1942. At those times, when the Hierarchy meets in silent conclave, a part of God's vision, and His [242] formulation of that vision for the immediate present, is revealed for the next nine year cycle. They then, in perfect freedom and with full mutual cooperation lay Their plans to bring about the desired objectives of the Heads of the Hierarchy, as They in Their turn cooperate with still higher Forces and Knowers.


The above information will probably evoke much interest from those students who are not as yet attuned to the higher values. For all who read this, could they but grasp it, this is the least important part of the chapter and carries for them the minimum of usefulness. It has for us, you will note, no practical application. Some might enquire then and rightly: Why then give out this information? Because this Treatise is written for the future disciples and initiates, and all that is here set forth is part of a revelation of truth which it is desired should be given out. It comes today through many channels and from many sources - such is the wonder of the power behind the present world adjustments!

This instinct of Deity is closely connected with the Law of Economy and is an expression of the Principle of Materialization. For man, it has to be studied, grasped, and wrought out through the right use of the mental body, working under the influence of Atma or Spirit. The principle of Continuance has to be wrought out into conscious knowledge by the right use of the astral or desire nature, working under the influence of Buddhi. The Trend to Synthesis has finally to be wrought out in the brain consciousness upon the physical plane, under the influence of the Monad, but its real expression and man's true response to this urge only become possible after the third initiation. So it is easily to be seen that this Treatise is indeed written for the future.

We have here received much upon which to ponder, to [243] think and to meditate. Let us search for the thread of gold which will lead us, in waking consciousness, into the treasure house of our own souls, and there let us learn to be at-one with all that breathes, to sense the vision for the whole, as far as we can, and to work in unison with God's plan as far as it has been revealed to us by Those Who know.

These ancient rules, or determining factors - the essential conditioning laws in the life of the Soul - are in their nature basically psychological. For that reason, they warrant our study. On its own plane, the soul knows no separation, and the factor of synthesis governs all soul relations. The soul is occupied not only with the form that the vision of its objective may take, but with the quality or the meaning which that vision veils or hides. The soul knows the Plan; its form, outline, methods and objective are known.

Through the use of the creative imagination, the soul creates; it builds thought-forms on the mental plane and objectifies desire on the astral plane. It proceeds there to externalize its thought and its desire upon the physical plane through applied force, creatively actuated by the imagination of the etheric or vital vehicle. Yet because the soul is intelligence, motivated by love, it can (within the realized synthesis which governs its activities) analyze, discriminate and divide. The soul likewise aspires to that which is greater than itself, and reaches out to the world of divine ideas, and thus itself occupies a midway position between the world of ideation and the world of forms. This is its difficulty and its opportunity.

S.D.P.
