Here is what I found in SD 1888 Edn. pp 168:
It looks like the problem of 777 is still unsolved.


Notwithstanding this agreement, many mistakes, owing to this confusion,
crept into the earliest teachings.  The Races even were occasionally mixed
up with the “Rounds” and “Rings,” and led to similar mistakes in “Man.”
>From the first the Master had written—
“Not being permitted to give you the whole truth, or divulge the number of
isolated fractions . . . I am unable to satisfy you.”
This in answer to the questions, “If we are right, then the total existence
prior to the man-period is 637,” etc., etc.  To all the queries relating to
figures, the reply was, “Try to solve the problem of 777 incarnations. . .
. Though I am obliged to withhold information yet if you should work out
the problem by yourself, it will be my duty to tell you so.”
But they never were so worked out, and the results were—never-ceasing
perplexity and mistakes.
