SOME TERMS DEFINED
We must be aware at all times during these studies that we are dealing with a living universe.Whereas Science is coming to realize more and more that energy and matter are one and thesame . and in this respect it might be said that Science is approaching the Theosophicalviewpoint . yet it must be admitted that to the average scientist this is a strictly mechanisticuniverse. Nothing could be farther from his mind than the idea of the sun as the visible, vitalaura of a mighty Solar Consciousness. To him the idea of a living universe in the sense of its providing the environment for countless hosts of entities of all conceivable kinds is
 
untenable. Therefore, although it is necessary for every serious student to acquaint himself with the findings and hypotheses of modern science, nevertheless he must becomeincreasingly aware of the teachings of the Ancient Wisdom. He must seek to give modernscientific ideas their proper place, to see them in their right perspective; but he must never make the mistake of trying to adapt the teachings of Theosophy so that they fit into modernideas. To do this would be a fatal error. Not only would he lose sight of the real meaning of the teachings, but he would find that he would have to embark on a continuing series of concessions and adaptations in his efforts to reconcile them with the changing viewpoints of scientists of today and of the future.Once that we have established firmly in our minds the concept of the living universe, we thencan see that it is of the utmost importance that we know when we are talking about entitiesand when we are discussing bodies. The importance of this cannot be overemphasized. Thisis because in our studies we are going to deal with embodied entities, even though the manner of embodiment and the types of bodies may vary considerably. Now there are certain technical terms used in this book which could be difficult tounderstand. They embody concepts which H.P.B. stated clearly to be non-understandable .certainly so with our very imperfect intellectual equipment. Nevertheless an attempt will now be made to define these terms and elucidate the ideas they embody. The result will of necessity be an over-simplification, but let it be made clear that what follows is at least aneffort to establish pointers in the right direction.A word of warning is in order. If adhered to beyond their immediate usefulness, theseexplanations will tend to crystallize in our minds, making it then more difficult for us toapproach higher teachings which cannot be explained in these present terms.
Object and Subjective
During the course of these studies we shall delve into some of the mysteries of invisiblenature, touching on the many states of consciousness that is possible to achieve, and which point to the existence of invisible worlds and the denizens thereof. These are often referred toas the subjective worlds and entities, as contrasted with the objective world in which we live.Recognizing that the words
objective
and
 subjective
may mean many things to many people,it is well to state clearly the sense in which these terms are to be used in this book.The terms are not to be equated with
real 
and
unreal 
. Although reality may be defined as thatwhich is, yet it is a relative thing, for something that may be very real to one individual may be non-existent to another. In such a case, we may be right in saying that the first individualhas had a subjective experience, recognizing at the same time that it may be affecting his lifevery profoundly. We do not deny reality of the experience so far as he is concerned. Some of these experiences may be harmful, and might be though of as karmic ghosts from his own past. He must conquer them, or he may fall by the wayside. On the other hand, somesubjective experiences may be lofty and inspiring. He may profit by them, but he mustunderstand them as well, and recognize their illusory character. He must learn from them, andseek the way to the greater realities that are a part of Nature itself.A wider meaning of the term touches on those ideas that are shared in by many people, andyet have little or no bearing on actual fact. Take, for example, the childhood belief in Santa
