7d. Seven Laya Centres:
Zero Point Foundations for the Laws of Nature
VI, 2. THE SWIFT AND RADIANT ONE PRODUCES THE SEVEN LAYA CENTRES ... AND SEATS THE UNIVERSE ON THESE ETERNAL FOUNDATIONS.... (Stanza VI, 2)
The seven Layu centres are the seven Zero points, using the term Zero in the same sense that Chemists do, to indicate a point at which, in Esotericism, the scale of reckoning of differentiation begins. (S.D., I, pp. 138-9)
According to Blavatsky, the laws of nature manifest in the material worlds are due to divine and spiritual intelligences within super-sensuous states of being. These influences are conveyed by Fohat through zero point dynamics to manifest outwardly within the life of any ‘Son’ –whether that of a universe, a quantum or a human being. Blavatsky describes the influx of formative forces manifesting from within the higher spiritual and divine realms into the lower material realm as acting through “holes dug in Space” –“invisible points” or “zero-points.” Fohat’s influences emerge through the seven Laya (or Layu) Centres, those wheels and vortices are at zero point levels where material differentiation begins. It is this process which “ends as Omnipresent Mind and Life (being) immanent in every atom of Matter.” (S.D., I, p. 139)
Blavatsky describes the seven inside as “digging holes in Space” to channel their intelligence/influences into the material realm. Thus, seven invisible zero points holes dug in space are established as a foundation for physical manifestation and the laws of nature:
... all the so-called Forces of Nature, Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Heat, etc., etc., far from being modes of motion of material particles, are in esse, i.e., in their ultimate constitution, the differentiated aspects of that Universal Motion. ... When Fohat is said to produce “Seven Laya Centres,” it means that for formative or creative purposes, the GREAT LAW (Theists may call it God) stops, or rather modifies its perpetual motion on seven invisible points within the area of the manifested Universe. “The great Breath digs through Space seven holes into Laya to cause them to circumgyrate during Manvantara.” (Occult Catechism). We have said that Laya is what Science may call the Zero-point or line; the realm of absolute negativeness, or the one real absolute Force … the neutral axis, not one of the many aspects, but its centre. … “Seven Neutral Centres,” then are produced by Fohat …. (S.D., I , pp.147-8)
In this view, the foundation for the laws of nature and of material quanta (and the foundation of human consciousness) are the invisible Laya Centres–which extend from physical dimensions into the underlying metaphysical realm of the Eternal Parent Space and the Ceaseless Breath. The Gods and other invisible powers “clothe” themselves in bodies based upon such zero point dynamics and holes dug in space, through which Fohat acting as an electromagnetic force links the intelligence above to the material realm below.
Although the Zero Point is sometimes described as being singular, at other times it is described as having this sevenfold differentiation. Like Fohat, it is One and Seven. It is from such mysterious zero point conditions that the differentiation of a Cosmos, a quantum or Monad begins. Modern scientist, Paul Davis (1984) described such a model of 11 dimensional theory in modern physics where 7 ‘compacted dimensions’ are rolled up into elements at zero point levels. Davis explained, “think of the extra dimensions as somehow inside the atom” (p. 160). Remarkably, Blavatsky explained exactly this type of peculiar inner dimensionality to ‘atoms,’ quanta, Monads and cosmoses over a century ago, Accordingly, Blavatsky’s model suggests that there is a complex metaphysics to reality at zero point levels.
The “Imperishable Laya Centres” have a great importance, and their meaning must be fully understood if we would have a clear conception of the Archaic Cosmogony. (S.D., I)
Blavatsky maintained an unusual conception of the permanency and impermanency of matter. She states that matter is eternal–but only in its first undifferentiated condition–in “the laya state.” Material quanta, Cosmoses, and Monads are differentiated from a ‘laya state’ –an apparent zero point source or condition. The material quanta, structures and organization come and go through different cycles of cosmic manifestation, but the laya centers are ‘imperishable.’
The following diagram conveys the idea of the various forces underlying any material quantum as represented by the final product of the Tree of Life –the lowest sphere referred to as Malkuth or the Kingdom. The quantum is a function of all of the forces which pass through the higher dimensions of the Tree of Life and which emerge from within the root principles of creation. Ultimately, everything is a derivative of the Theological Trinity of Be-ness, the Eternal Parent Space and the Ceaseless Breath. The Eternal Parent Space has an inherent sevenfoldness and hence produces seven pre-material protyles, or seven Ethers as modifications of the fundamental Akasa. The Ceaseless Breath is similarly differentiated into the Seven Luminous Sons—the Dhyan Chohans. The Seven Fohats mediate between the higher realms and the spheres below. These three–the Seven Protyles, the Seven Luminous Sons and the Seven Fohats—can be considered to form a ‘metaphysical trinity,’ as distinct from the ‘theological trinity’ above. In the Tree of Life, the metaphysical trinity forms a downward turned triangle below, in contrast to the upward turned triangle of the theological trinity above.
depict the unfolding of the Seven Laya Centres in a sequential process. In terms of modern physics, this is called ‘sequential symmetry breaking’ out of a
state of ‘perfect symmetry’ hypothesized to exist before cosmic
from the Akasa. This
symmetry breaking is depicted in the Stanzas:
VI, 2. THE SWIFT AND RADIANT ONE PRODUCES THE SEVEN LAYA CENTRES, AGAINST WHICH NONE WILL PREVAIL TO THE GREAT DAY “BE-WITH-US,” AND SEATS THE UNIVERSE ON THESE ETERNAL FOUNDATIONS SURROUNDING TSIEN-TCHAN WITH THE ELEMENTARY GERMS.
3. OF THE SEVEN—FIRST ONE MANIFESTED, SIX CONCEALED, TWO MANIFESTED, FIVE CONCEALED; THREE MANIFESTED, FOUR CONCEALED; FOUR PRODUCED, THREE HIDDEN; FOUR AND ONE TSAN REVEALED, TWO AND ONE HALF CONCEALED; SIX TO BE MANIFESTED, ONE LAID ASIDE. LASTLY, SEVEN SMALL WHEELS REVOLVING; ONE GIVING BIRTH TO THE OTHER.
From the perspective of The Secret Doctrine, all of these higher level and primordial realms underlie material manifestation of a cosmos or quantum. Subsequently, any physics carried far enough has to lead to this ancient metaphysics. In contrast, the naive materialist science philosophy of the past century takes only the last sphere of the Tree of Life as ‘reality:’ the material realm governed by mechanistic laws and considers that there is no underlying metaphysics to such processes. In contrast, Blavatsky explained how all things are created, sustained and dissolved through zero-point dynamics rooted into higher dimensions and the primordial realms.
All the laws of physics are founded upon zero point foundations and these are the portals for higher dimensional influences. Further, these processes proceed on successive levels or planes of being, creating manifest reality within-without from zero points levels. H. P. Blavatsky certainly held a remarkable view of physics and the metaphysical processes underlying familiar reality.
The zero point teaching provides a highly valuable
alternative perspective on the mysteries of creation, as well as on the
theories of modern physics and cosmology.
Blavatsky is suggesting that the true causes of phenomena
in the outer
world are founded upon these zero point sources—in a manner quite
with the newest models of higher compacted dimensions, zero point
black-hole information processes and holographic physics—as we shall
see. The Gods and other invisible powers
themselves in bodies based on such zero point foundations, seven
holes dug in space!
