A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Div. B - Manas as a Cosmic, Systemic and Human Factor
a. Ray Effects - The Ray of Harmony, Beauty and Art

or the second manasic aspect (adaptability being the third) will work out in the following ways:

  • In the development of the intuition by the means of the knowledge of sound vibration, and the higher mathematics. This is being already touched upon exoterically.
  • Music, as a means to be employed in building and destroying, will be recognized, and the laws of levitation and of rhythmic movement in all forms, from an atom to a solar system, will be studied. The manipulation of matter of all kinds by the means of sound will be practiced on the two lower planes, and when the synthesis of the four rays into the third is in process of accomplishment, then a similar knowledge will be displayed on the mental plane.
  • The laws of fire will be gradually permitted exoteric publication; there are twenty-seven occult laws which are only revealed after initiation at this stage of evolution. In them are summed up the basic laws of color and of music and rhythm. When music produces warmth or stimulation, and when pictures, for instance, glow or reveal the subjective within the objective, then will this fourth Ray of Harmony be coming to fruition.

Let us keep the numbering of the Rays clearly in mind. The numbers preceding the names have to do with the sevenfold manifestation, and the numbers succeeding the names concern the fivefold manifestation of Brahma. [428]

Rays of Aspect: 1. Will or Power.
2. Love or Wisdom.
3. Adaptability or active intelligence 1.
Rays of Attribute: 4. Harmony, Beauty or Art 2.
5. Concrete Knowledge or Science 3.
6. Abstract Idealism 4.
7. Ceremonial Magic 5.
We must now continue, with our consideration of the four types of force, emanating from certain great Entities, and the future results that may be expected from their effect upon man, remembering ever that these four influences (with their synthesis, the third Ray of Aspect) sum up, in themselves, the fifth logoic principle of manas. They are, literally, the radiatory effects of the Divine Manasaputras. We are concerned primarily with the results to be brought about in the units in Their bodies.

The coming into power of this fourth Ray at any time (and such an advent may be looked for towards the close of this lesser cycle, which ended in 1924) will produce a corresponding activity in connection with the fourth subplane in each plane, beginning with the fourth physical ether; this will result in the following effects:

First, physical plane scientists will be able to speak with authority anent the fourth ether, even though they may not recognize it as the lowest of the four etheric grades of substance: its sphere of influence and its utilization will be comprehended, and "force" as a factor in matter, or the electrical manifestation of energy within definite limits, will be as well understood as is hydrogen at this time. Indications of this can already be seen in the discovery of radium, and the study of radioactive substances and of electronic demonstration. This knowledge will revolutionize the life of man; it will put into his hands that which occultists call "power of the fourth order" (on the physical plane). It will enable him to [429] utilize electrical energy for the regulation of his everyday life in a way as yet incomprehensible; it will produce new methods of illuminating, and of heating the world at a small cost and with practically no initial outlay. The fact of the existence of the etheric body will be established, and the healing of the dense physical body, via the etheric body, by force utilization and solar radiation, will take the place of the present methods. Healing will then fall practically into two departments:

  1. Vitalization, by means of:
    1. Electricity.
    2. Solar and planetary radiation.
  2. Definite curative processes, through the occult knowledge of:
    1. The force centers.
    2. The work of the devas of the fourth ether.

Transportation on sea and land will be largely superseded by the utilization of air routes and the transit of large bodies through the air, by means of the instantaneous use of the force or energy inherent in the ether itself, will take the place of the present methods.
