We must remember here that all the atomic subplanes of the seven planes form the seven spirillae of the logoic permanent atom, for this has a close bearing upon the subject under consideration.  The units, therefore, in the three lower kingdoms possess no permanent atoms but contribute to the formation of those atoms in the higher kingdoms.  

First, it might be said that the lowest or mineral kingdom provides that vital something which is the essence of the physical permanent atom of the human being.  It provides that energy which is the negative basis for the positive inflow which can be seen pouring in through the upper depression of the physical permanent atom.  

Secondly, the vegetable kingdom similarly provides the negative energy for the Astral permanent atom of a man, and thirdly, the animal kingdom provides the negative force which when energized by the positive is seen as the mental unit.  This energy which is contributed by the three lower kingdoms is formed of the very highest vibration of which that kingdom is capable, and serves as a link between man and his various sheaths, all of which are allied to one or other of the lower kingdoms.

  1. The mental body - mental unit - animal kingdom.  

  1. The Astral body - Astral permanent atom - vegetable kingdom.  

  1. The physical body - physical permanent atom - mineral kingdom.  

In man these three types of energy are brought together, and synthesized, and when perfection of the personality is reached, and the vehicles aligned, we have:

  1. The energy of the mental unit - positive.  

  1. The energy of the Astral permanent atom - equilibrized.  

  1. The energy of the physical permanent atom - negative.  

Man is then closely linked with the three lower kingdoms by the best that they can provide, and they have literally given him his permanent atoms, and enabled him to manifest through their activity.  Each kingdom is positive to the one next below it, and between them is found that period of manifestation which bridges the two, and connects the positive and the negative.  


The Lipika Lords, controlling the periodical manifestation of life are, roughly speaking, divided into the following groups, which it might be of interest to note:

  1. Three extra-systemic or cosmic Lords of Karma, Who work from a center in Sirius through the medium of three representatives.  These form a group around the Solar Logos, and hold to Him a position analogous to the three Buddha's of Activity Who stand around Sanat Kumara.

  1. Three Lipika Lords Who are the karmic agents working through the three aspects.  

  1. Nine Lipikas Who are the sumtotal of the agents for the Law working through what the Kabalah calls the nine Sephiroth.  

  1. Seven presiding agents of karma for each one of the seven schemes.  

These four groups correspond in manifestation to the Unmanifested, manifesting through the triple Aspects, and under Them work an infinity of lesser agents.  These lesser agents might again be somewhat differentiated, each of the following groups being found in every scheme and on every Ray-emanation.
