TG Scarabaeus. In Egypt, the symbol of resurrection, and also of rebirth; of resurrection for the mummy or rather of the highest aspects of the personality which animated it, and of rebirth for the Ego, the "spiritual body" of the lower, human Soul. Egyptologists give us but half of the truth, when in speculating upon the meaning of certain inscriptions, they say, "the justified soul, once arrived at a certain period of its peregrinations (simply at the death of the physical body) should be united to its body (i.e., the Ego) never more to be separated from it". (Rouge.) What is this so-called body? Can it be the mummy? Certainly not, for the emptied mummified corpse can never resurrect. It can only be the eternal, spiritual vestment, the EGO that never dies but gives immortality to whatsoever becomes united with it. "The delivered Intelligence (which) retakes its luminous envelope and (re)becomes Daimon", as Prof. Maspero says, is the spiritual Ego; the personal Ego or Kama-Manas, its direct ray, or the lower soul, is that which aspires to become Osirified, i.e., to unite itself with its "god"; and that portion of it which will succeed in so doing, will never more be separated from it (the god), not even when the latter incarnates again and again, descending periodically on earth in its pilgrimage, in search of further experiences and following the decrees of Karma. Khem, "the sower of seed", is shown on a stele in a picture of Resurrection after physical death, as the creator and the sower of the grain of corn, which, after corruption, springs up afresh each time into a new ear, on which a scarabaeus beetle is seen poised; and Deveria shows very justly that "Ptah is the inert, material form of Osiris, who will become Sokari (the eternal Ego) to be reborn, and afterwards be Harmachus", or Horus in his transformation, the risen god. The prayer so often found in the tumular inscriptions, "the wish for the resurrection in one's living soul" or the Higher Ego, has ever a scarabaeus at the end, standing for the personal soul. The scarabaeus is the most honoured, as the most frequent and familiar, of all Egyptian symbols. No mummy is without several of them; the favourite ornament on engravings, household furniture and utensils is this sacred beetle, and Pierret pertinently shows in his Livre des Morts that the secret meaning of this hieroglyph is sufficiently explained in that the Egyptian name for the scarabaeus, Kheper, signifies to be, to become, to build again.

WW Scholastics You will remember that I said that the Christians had no philosophy. They had none such in the sense that the Hindu religions have a philosophy, which is a component part, the greater and nobler part, of their religion. But during all the Middle Ages the Christians had different schools of thinkers, hairsplitting dialectitians and logicians they were, quarreling about abstractions; the differences between them frequently so minute that it is a marvel to a man of modern times how thinking beings could indulge in such acrimonious and bitter controversies over subjects so uninspiring. Some of these latter however, are not unworthy of thought. Take an example which is often quoted by modern writers as typical of the uselessness of abstract discussion: How many angels or similar beings can find place on the point of a needle? This is often quoted as a singularly efficient argument against the scholastics, as the so-called philosophers and learned men of the Middle Ages were called. But if we consider that even from the standpoint of modern science and particularly from the discoveries of late years there is a world of infinitesimal electrons composing the atom of physics and chemistry -- the atom having been shown by the latest researches to be composed of a multitude of these smaller entities -- then perhaps we may see another way of looking at it. The atom may be conceived of as an atomic solar system. The electrons are conceived of as planets circling, as our planets do, around our sun, around some mysterious and wonderful center in the atom. Now this thought shows us that perhaps in these strange speculations of the schoolmen or the scholastics there may have been some instinctive notion of things as they exist in other spheres, on other planes, if you like, on the lowest etheric plane. When a man is asked to decide how many angels can perform or evolve on the point of a needle, if his mind is not thoughtful and inclined to reflection, he may take the inquirer to be a lunatic. But what are angels? They are not men; they are not creatures, according to the theory, below men. According to the theory they are creatures above man. The point of a needle as contrasted with an atom, is immense; it is an extensive universe; armies of spiritual beings on their groups of electronic spheres, might be conceived as executing their evolutions on the point of a needle. Take our own world, our own solar system, our own universe, which includes all that is visible to the eye; it is conceivable, and I believe true, that it all can be thought of as a point by some intelligence so infinitely superior to ours that it conceives of and knows things which are utterly beyond our ken. Sometimes the ideas of the scholastics (in fact usually, rather than sometimes) were puerile. Their arguments seemed to be principally to hair-split definitions. They indulged in vain and empty speculations on abstract subjects, and it is small wonder that the world since the decline and fall of scholasticism has looked upon the huge and monumental tomes of their writings as mental wilderness. Few men read, fewer still search them.

Scholasticism arose in Europe after a period of intellectual night called the Dark Ages, which we may place between the 6th and 9th centuries. Then, when Charlemagne had extended his conquests over most of Europe, he began to found schools, and to strengthen those which already existed, to enlarge their sphere of activities. He was a great man, a bigot perhaps, but he had a love for the arts, and a love of learning, and he knew his duty in the lofty position which he held. And from that time we may date the rise of scholasticism. The word scholastic itself meant, about the time of the fall of the Roman Empire, a teacher of rhetoric in the schools, and the scholastics were called so because they were schoolmen, from schole, school. They were the learned men of the times and naturally they were theologians. Some specialized in the branches of philosophy which in their barbarous and rude form had come down to them from the schools of the Roman Empire; had slowly through the centuries, filtered into the benighted intellects of the Europeans from the intellectual splendor of Alexandria, early Constantinople, and Antioch. But there was very little of it. They even knew little of Aristotle, who later became their favorite. He became to them the model of all a philosopher should be.

There were three of these scholastics who towered above their fellows -- Albertus Magnus, a German born in Lauingen, in Suabia; a Scot (or an Irishman, as some think) Duns Scotus; and a third, an Italian, Thomas Aquinas or Aquino. Duns Scotus is usually supposed to have been born in the town of Dunse in Scotland. From the name of this man, by the way, has originated our word dunce. He was one of the most learned men of his age, a Franciscan friar, and he was called the doctor subtilissimus, or the most subtle (religious) teacher, on account of the supposed intellectual subtlety of his writing. And consequently after his death whenever a man showed unusual learning or unusual ability in acquiring knowledge, he became "another Duns." Afterwards the name was applied derisively, and to say "You are a Duns" implied that the man addressed was of slow and bovine intellect or what we call a dunce.

Now this man Thomas Aquinas was a Dominican. The two great orders of the Roman Church, the Dominicans and the Franciscans, have each their chosen intellectual philosophy. The Franciscan's authority is Duns Scotus, naturally as he was a Franciscan friar; the Dominicans recognized Thomas of Aquino as their philosophical head. Thomas Aquinas was a close and earnest student of the writings of Dionysius the Areopagite, so much so that later writers, most of them Roman Catholic writers, have said that if the works of Thomas Aquinas disappeared, they could reconstruct all he had ever written from the writings of Dionysius the Areopagite. The writings of Thomas Aquinas are of tremendous authority in the Roman Church. If I am not mistaken, it is within three or four years that the Pope issued an encyclical condemning the advance of modernism in that church, and reiterated the necessity of holding to the theology (the Apex or ne plus ultra of theology) of Thomas Aquinas. Now as this work is considered in the church of Rome to be one of the best guides of their priests, it practically represents the standard of their theology, the touchstone of their faith. As Thomas Aquinas' great work is derived to such a great extent from the writings of the Greek Christian Dionysius the Areopagite, whose works have been proved to have been derived from Neoplatonic sources, that is to say from pagan sources, we have the paradox that the Roman Church has chosen as its theological touchstone a work based on pagan philosophy. It is of a piece with what Protestant theologians have often pointed out, that Rome, Papal Rome, in its theology as well as in its hierarchy, its institutions, and its ritual, is a copy, more or less degraded, of pagan institutions, pagan thought, and pagan temple ceremonial. Roman Catholic theologians, to a certain extent, do not deny this. They ascribe it to the greatness of their faith, its ability to absorb other faiths, and to the fact that its own majesty never suffers diminution by absorption, but absorbs to transmute, and much more in similar vein.

The scholastics had a curious reputation among later men. It has been said of them that they discussed about everything in heaven and in earth, and about some things besides -- de omnibus rebus caelo terra, -- et de quibusdam aliis. Possibly that is one of the reasons why the Roman church boasts of itself as follows: quod semper, quod ab omnibus, quod ubique, -- i.e. that "it is always, that it is recognized by everybody, that it is everywhere" -- a proud boast indeed. The only thing, I think, that will fit the description conveyed in that Latin saying is the sublime science which we believe in, of which we may truly say that it is always, that it is accepted by everybody, that it is everywhere, because we can prove -- and it will be our effort to prove it in our studies -- that in one form or other, in all times, and under whatever names it may have been set forth, there has been one Truth, as there has been one effort to reach the truth by men, and that that Truth contains those principles of being, those principal heads of thought, which we call Theosophy.

TG Schools of the Prophets. Schools established by Samuel for the training of the Nabiim (prophets). Their method was pursued on the same lines as that of a Chela or candidate for initiation into the occult sciences, i.e., the development of abnormal faculties or clairvoyance leading to Seership. Of such schools there were many in days of old in Palestine and Asia Minor. That the Hebrews worshipped Nebo, the Chaldean god of secret learning, is quite certain, since they adopted his name as an equivalent of Wisdom.

OG Science -- An operation of the human spirit-mind in its endeavor to understand the how of things -- not any particular science whatsoever, but the thing in itself, science per se -- ordered and classified knowledge. One phase of a triform method of understanding the nature of universal nature and its multiform and multifold workings; and this phase cannot be separated from the other two -- philosophy and religion -- if we wish to gain a true picture of things as they are in themselves.

Science is the aspect of human thinking in the activity of the mentality in the latter's inquisitive, researching, and classifying functions.

OG Second Death -- This is a phrase used by ancient and modern mystics to describe the dissolution of the principles of man remaining in kama-loka after the death of the physical body. For instance, Plutarch says: "Of the deaths we die, the one makes man two of three, and the other, one out of two." Thus, using the simple division of man into spirit, soul, and body: the first death is the dropping of the body, making two out of three; the second death is the withdrawal of the spiritual from the kama-rupic soul, making one out of two. The second death takes place when the lower or intermediate duad (manas-kama) in its turn separates from, or rather is cast off by, the upper duad; but preceding this event the upper duad gathers unto itself from this lower duad what is called the reincarnating ego, which is all the best of the entity that was, all its purest and most spiritual and noblest aspirations and hopes and dreams for betterment and for beauty and harmony. Inherent in the fabric, so to speak, of the reincarnating ego, there remain of course the seeds of the lower principles which at the succeeding rebirth or reincarnation of the ego will develop into the complex of the lower quaternary. (See also Kama-Rupa)

KT Self. There are two Selves in men -- the Higher and the Lower, the Impersonal and the Personal Self. One is divine, the other semi-animal. A great distinction should be made between the two.

VS Knower of All Self (I 9) [[p. 5]] The Tatwagyanee is the "knower" or discriminator of the principles in nature and in man; and Atmagyanee is the knower of ATMAN or the Universal, ONE SELF.

VS That way begins and ends outside of Self (II 28) [[p. 39]] Meaning the personal lower "Self."

VS unites thee to thy "silent Self" (II 12) [[p. 30]] The "Higher Self" the "seventh" principle.

OG Self -- Man is a sheaf or bundle of forces or energies and material elements combined; and the power controlling all and holding them together, making out of the composite aggregate a unity, is what theosophists call the Self -- not the mere ego, but the Self, a purely spiritual unit, in its essence divine, which is the same in every man and woman on earth, the same in every entity everywhere in all the boundless fields of limitless space, as we understand space. If one closely examine his own consciousness, he will very soon know that this is the pure consciousness expressed in the words, "I am" -- and this is the Self; whereas the ego is the cognition of the "I am I." Consider the hierarchy of the human being growing from the Self as its seed -- ten stages: three on the arupa or immaterial plane; and seven (or perhaps better, six) on the planes of matter or manifestation. On each one of these seven planes (or six planes), the Self or paramatman develops a sheath or garment, the upper ones spun of spirit, or light if you will, and the lower ones spun of shadow or matter; and each such sheath or garment is a soul; and between the Self and a soul -- any soul -- is an ego.

SD INDEX Sephirah Djenioutha. SeeSiphra di-Tseni`utha'

TG Sephiroth (Heb.). The ten emanations of Deity; the highest is formed by the concentration of the Ain Soph Aur, or the Limitless Light, and each Sephira produces by emanation another Sephira. The names of the Ten Sephiroth are -- 1. Kether -- The Crown; 2. Chokmah -- Wisdom; 3. Binah -- Understanding; 4. Chesed -- Mercy; 5. Geburah -- Power; 6. Tiphereth -- Beauty; 7. Netzach -- Victory; 8. Hod -- Splendour; 9. Jesod -- Foundation; and 10. Malkuth -- The Kingdom.

The conception of Deity embodied in the Ten Sephiroth is a very sublime one, and each Sephira is a picture to the Kabbalist of a group of exalted ideas, titles and attributes, which the name but faintly represents. Each Sephira is called either active or passive, though this attribution may lead to error; passive does not mean a return to negative existence; and the two words only express the relation between individual Sephiroth, and not any absolute quality. [W.W.W.]

KT Sephiroth. A Hebrew Kabalistic word, for the ten divine emanations from Ain-Soph, the impersonal, universal Principle, or DEITY. (Vide Theos. Gloss.)

WGa Sephiroth, the ten emanations of Deity in the Hebrew Kabalah. They are, Kether, crown; Chokmah, wisdom; Binah, understanding; Chesed, mercy; Geburah, power; Tiphereth, beauty; Netzach, victory; Hod, splendor; Jesod, foundation; Malkuth, the kingdom.
