The Ego, having brought about a condition of receptivity, or of recognition in the physical brain of the man, and having drawn from him the necessary response, the process of building is thereupon begun.  This process of Physical plane response is based, as is all else in nature, upon the relation of the polar opposites.  The physical centers are receptive to the positive influence of the force centers.  The physical brain is responsive to the positive influence of the lower nature in the earlier evolutionary stages, or to the reactions of the substance of the sheaths, the impress of the lunar Lords.  It responds in the later stages to the positive influence of the Ego or the impress of the solar Lord.  

When man is learning consciously to create, which he does through the organization of thought, concentration and meditation, he proceeds more slowly, for he has two primary things to do before the creative process can be carried through:

  1. To contact or communicate with the Ego, or solar Angel.  

  1. To study the process of creation and to make it conform step by step with natural evolutionary law.  

Starting, therefore, with the recognition of the Egoic intent in the physical brain, the man proceeds to build the form for his idea.  He begins first to organize the material required upon the Mental plane.  It is on that plane that the impulse takes to itself its primary form.  On the desire or Astral plane, the process of vitalization is largely pursued, for the length of the life of any thought-form (even such an one as our solar system) is dependent upon the persistence of desire, and the strength of the desire.  

On the Etheric levels of the Physical plane the process of physical concretion takes place; as the physical vehicle assumes the necessary proportions, the thought-form becomes divorced from the one who is giving it form.  Any idea of enough strength will inevitably materialize in dense physical matter, but the main work of its creator ceases when he has worked with it on mental, Astral and Etheric levels.  The dense physical response is automatic and inevitable.  Some ideas of a large and important nature, which have arisen in the consciousness of the Guides of the race, reach full manifestation only through the medium of many agents, and the dynamic impulses of many minds.  

A few work consciously, when this is the case, at the production of the necessitated form; many more are swept into activity and lend their aid through the very negativity of their natures; they are "forced" to be interested in spite of themselves, and are "swept into the movement," not through any mental apprehension or "vital desire," but because it is the thing to do.  In this may be seen an instance of the ability of the Great Ones to utilize conditions of apparent inertia and negativity (due to little development), and thus produce good results.  

Having grasped the idea, and having with care discriminated the motive underlying the idea, thus ascertaining its utilitarian purposes, and its value to the group in the service of humanity, the man has certain things to do which, for the sake of clarity, we might sum up in certain statements:

He has, first of all, to hold the idea sufficiently long for it to be faithfully registered in the physical brain.  Frequently the Ego will "get through" to the brain some concept, some portion of the plan, and yet will have to repeat the process continuously over quite a long period before the physical response is such that the solar Angel can rest assured that it is intelligently registered and recorded.  When the reaction between the two factors, the Ego and the receptive physical brain, is established, the interplay is reciprocal, and the two are keyed or tuned to each other, the second stage is entered upon.  The idea is conceived.  

A period of gestation is then pursued, itself divided into various stages.  The man broods over the idea; he ponders upon it, thereby setting up activity in mental matter, and attracting to his germ thought the material necessary for its clothing.  He pictures to himself the contour of the thought-form, clothing it with color, and painting in its details.  Hence will be seen the great value of a true imagination, and its ordered scientific use.  Imagination is kama-manasic in origin, being neither pure desire nor pure mind, and is a purely human product, being superseded by the intuition in perfected men, and in the higher Intelligences of Nature.
