HPB makes a very similar point in *The Secret Doctrine* and in the Stanzas of
Dzyan of that book, we read in Stanza III that the last vibration "thrills
throughout infinitude," the vibration "sweeps along" touching "with its swift
wing the whole unniverse."

A very potent image/idea, no? I included the Stanzas in my "Myth, Ritual,
Symbols" class at UC Davis, and the kids are into it. Of all the
cosmogonies, HPB's is the most engaging, poetic, and captivating. No wonder,
if its the "source" cosmogony for most (all?) of the others.
