“I first learned that the destiny of the three-brained beings (humans)arising on this planet is chiefly to elaborate, by the very process of their existence, the vibrations required by Nature for the maintenance of those former parts of their planet now called ‘Moon’ and ‘Anulios’ ……
“His Conformity then told me that although the movement of the two former parts of the planet Earth had been finally regulated to accord with the movement of the general harmony, and though all apprehension of some surprise or other in the immediate future had vanished, nevertheless, to avoid any possible complications in the distant future it had been categorically decided by the Most High and Most Sacred Individuals to take the necessary measures to insure the formation on the Earth of what is called the sacred ‘askokin,’ so that this sacred cosmic substance, indispensable for the maintenance of the Moon and Anulios, might issue continuously from your planet.
“His Conformity also explained that this cosmic substance, the sacred ‘askokin,’ exists throughout the Universe, generally blended with the sacred substances ‘abrustdonis’ and ‘helkdonis,’ and therefore, in order to have the degree of vivifyingness required for such maintenance, the sacred substance ‘askokin’ must first be freed from the other two substances.
“To tell the truth, my boy, I did not understand at once all that he told me, it all became clear to me only later when, during my studies of the fundamental cosmic laws, I learned that these sacred substances ‘abrustdonis’ and ‘helkdonis’ are precisely those substances which enter into the formation and perfecting of the higher being-bodies of the three-brained beings—that is, the ‘kesdjan body’ and the ‘body of the soul’—and that the separation of the sacred ‘askokin’ from the two other substances proceeds when beings, on whatever planet they may be, transmute these sacred substances in themselves for the forming and perfecting of their higher bodies, by means of conscious labor and intentional suffering.
“And when I became interested in these favorites of yours and began to observe and study their strange psyche, I finally understood why and to what ends Great Nature herself and the Most High and Most Saintly Individuals are always patiently adapting themselves to all things. In this connection, the following personal opinion was formed in me.
“If only these favorites of yours would seriously ponder all this and serve Nature honestly in this respect, their being-self-perfecting might then proceed automatically, even without the participation of their consciousness, and in any case, the poor Nature of this ill-fated planet would not have to ‘puff and blow’ to adapt herself to remain within the common-cosmic harmony.
“But to the misfortune of everything existing in the Megalocosmos, there is no honesty in your favorites in fulfilling their duties, not even toward that Nature to whom, in truth, they owe their very existence.”
……….when it became clear that there had entirely disappeared from the psyche of your favorites the instinctive need for conscious labor and intentional suffering in order to take in and transmute in themselves the sacred substances abrustdonis and helkdonis—thus releasing the sacred askokin for the maintenance of the Moon and Anulios—Great Nature was constrained to adapt herself and to extract this sacred substance by other means, one of them being precisely that periodic terrifying process of reciprocal destruction.
