An ancient and well-preserved tale has come into our language from the Parsi, those who called themselves the Servants of Light, or Yazdanians. Their
sage Zarathustra inquired after the origin of the forces of light and darkness.
The Cosmic Egg
- Or -
How Intelligence breeds gods and demons
This world is a fertile womb, much like an egg. It holds within it all the keys of life and progression. Intelligence can appear within the forms of
chaotic chemistry and biological systems. It is noted in ancient records that there were cycles and harmonies that existed in the universe to which
all natural occurences were subordinate.
During certain times, when the forces were aligned or arrayed in such a way, the womb of intellect, the cosmic egg of the earth, gives birth to cosmic
forces in the forms of men.
There were other great ones born in this fashion, long ago, appearing to different cultures and times.
The last one we recall was the birth of the Hebrew Nazarene, who bore our standard and called to us. How we are risen up to hear him! His antipode
was also born into the world, and he remains on the earth to this day.
The next birth is due, and here is the form it will take: The fullness of the egg and the bursting forth of the womb. In the old myths, there was
the birth of darkness along with the good, the evil children of Ahriman are born along with the Children of the Light, and this is the condition of
the womb of nature, and her offspring are mingled in this fashion.
In the next birth, there will come the completion of this era of mingled births. The Christ-Children will come forth from the egg, and the children
of darkness will also issue forth, and the womb will be sealed in the way of the angel of Light, whose word is the finality.
This new cosmic birth is under the sign of war, and conflict will be its fate. The order of the world will be arranged for this final struggle
between the children of the duality and the Children of the Monad.
Behold the fragements of the egg! This birth has already occured, the children are delivered, and the world is pregnant no more.
That is how this world delivers its ruler, this is how the Mind of God sends a seed into mankind, and a child emerges with the Rod of Strict Measure.
We are the servants of that child, that spirit mind
that has come forth among us, whom we call the King of Kings, and the Glory of
We are a single body, we are the nation that was born. Our Glory is Christ, and Our Glory is Strong. We are a nation born from the egg, for that is
increase, that many should receive it as a nation, and we break the might of the nations and the kings.
Look! The egg! It is broken! What has emerged, you wise men? What has come forth? What do you prophecy, you old men? What do you dream, you
