A strange and original little story, charmingly fantastic, but full of poetic feeling and, what is more, of deep philosophical and occult truths, for those who can perceive the ground-work it is built upon. A fresh Eclogue of Virgil in its first part, descriptive of Alpine scenery in the Tyrol, where the author
dreamt
 his adventure, with
shining glaciers glistening like vast mirrors in the light of the rising sun,
 deep ravines with rushing streams dancing between the cliffs, blue lakes slumbering among the mead-ows, and daisy-sprinkled valleys resting in the shadow of old pine forests. Gradually as the hero of the
Adventure
 ascended higher and higher, he began los-ing the sense of the world of the real, to pass unconsciously into the land of waking dreams. In these solitudes there is nothing to remind one of the existence of man, ex-cept occasionally the sawed-off trunk of a tree, showing the destructive influ-ence of human activity. In some old, rotten, and hollow trunks rain-water has collected, sparkling in the sun like little mirrors, such as may be used by wa-ter-nymphs, and around their edges mushrooms are growing, which our imagi-nation transforms into chairs, tables, and baldachinos for elves and fairies. . . . sound could now be heard, except occasionally the note of a titmouse and the cry of a hawk who rose in long-drawn spiral motion high up into the air. . . .  Throwing himself upon the moss, he begins watching the play of the water until it becomes
alive with forms of the most singular shape,
 with super-mundane beings dancing in the spray,
shaking their heads in the sunshine and throwing off showers of liquid silver from their waving locks.
. . .  Their laughter sounded like that of the Falls of
Minnehaha 
, and from the crevic-es of the rocks peeped the ugly faces of gnomes and kobolds, watching slyly the fairies.  Then the dreamer asks himself a variety of questions of the most perplexing nature, except, perhaps, to the materialist, who cuts every psychological problem as Alexan-der cleft the Gordian knot. . . .
What is the reason that we imagine such things
?
 he inquires.

 [This stands for Dr. Franz Hartmann (1838
 – 
1912), a remarkable German physician, philosopher and mystic, who was one of the most productive workers in the early days of the Theosophical Movement, and a personal friend of H.P.B. He was a great student of Paracelsus, and of mediaeval occultism in general. See for further data the Bio-Bibliographical Index, s.v.
