“Man in the first Round and First Race on Globe D, our Earth as an ethereal being … super spiritual, but he grows more and more into an encased or incarnate being, but still predominantly ethereal. …
“Second Round, He (Man) is still gigantic and ethereal but growing firmer and more condensed in body, a more physical man, yet still less intelligent than spiritual for mind is a slower and more difficult evolution than the physical frame. …
Third Round, he has now a perfectly concrete or compacted body, at first the form of a giant ape, and now more intelligent, or rather cunning, than spiritual. For, on the downward arc, he has now reached a point where his primordial spirituality is eclipsed by nascent mentality.” ~H. P. Blavatsky
Super Spiritual First Man
Looking at material existence only, we get the impression that man has been steadily evolving. But look at it from a more spiritual perspective, and we get a very different story. Long before man was a physical being, he existed as a spiritual being. He never died or got sick. He had no definite body and therefore occupied no specific point in space. They were controlled by spiritual consciousness rather than the brain-mind intellect.
Science tells us that the planets and stars started out as big gas clouds that gradually coalesced, becoming smaller and denser until they became planets and stars. Man did much the same thing. As above, so below. Starting out as pure spirit, super spiritual, as Blavatsky puts it, then probably formless gas with no definite shape. Then a form that was more like a ghost than a solid being. Finally becoming dense enough to have a dense physical body of matter. So man didn’t start out as a primitive animal. He started as pure spirit. While it may be true that our physical body evolved from lower creatures, our true self did not. Our real self descended from spirit.
Blavatsky says that in the “second round”, her name for the second eon of man, man was still gigantic and ethereal. Perhaps this is where legends of giants come from. Deep down, we may be remembering what we were in that second eon. At this point, we may be developing a brain and a limited intellect, but we still are mostly driven by the spiritual mind called the soul. But he was less spiritual, more material than in the first Round. No longer super spiritual. We can assume that the planet was in a similar state when this was happening. Exactly why man continued this descent into matter is unknown. Perhaps at this point it couldn’t be stopped. Or maybe we were having too much fun trying out different things to worry about the consequences. Something modern man can certainly relate too.
In the third eon, the descent of man is essentially complete. We have taken on completely physical bodies. We are controlled mostly by brain-mind intellect rather that the divine knowledge of the spirit and soul. This happened many thousands of years ago. Perhaps even millions of years ago. We have continued to descend further into matter since than. We have now reached the limits. The path ahead gives us two choices. We can continue to descend and become total matter being with no souls and no hope of redemption. Or we can turn around and head back in the other direction.
Assuming we are smart enough to make the choice to turn around, the man of tomorrow will be different than the man of today. The changes will probably be gradual, but eventually quite dramatic. We will lose must of our material density and become more like spirits again. We will not have to kill and eat other beings, plant or animal, but will live on Divine Light as God intended. We will not die or get old. Not in the physical sense, anyway. Our bodies will remain youthful forever. We wont get ill and we wont get injured. No broken bones because we probably won’t even have bones anymore. They will just be denser areas of energy. First Man will be back again. We will be in the New Golden Age of Man. And man will be super spiritual again. We are at the dawn of that age now. So jump on board before the ship sails without you.
