More on the Seven Principles of Nature:
I. The world of creation signifies the angelic world from which the original impulse first emanated...
II. The word of design is the subjective cause-world in the astral light, containing all the germs, forms and ideals possible for that system to ultimate.
III. The world of force is the ever circulating oceans of mundane, sub-mundane, and super-mundane forces...
IV. The world of phenomena needs no explanation, it being the world of matter.
V. The world of life is the fluidic, the first forms of all things, that is, organic forms 'wherein there is life' are vegetables, and originate in water, the grand matrix.
VI. The world of consciousness. The first rudimentary expression of consciousness, generally termed instinct, manifests itself in the animal kingdom. It is intelligent mind expressing itself through the lower forms of etherealized matter.
VII. The world of mind contains the human principle, Man being the culminating point of material evolution."
From The Light of Egypt or the Science of the Soul and the Stars, Volume One by Thomas H. Burgoyne, 1889.
