The teaching which is given in this Treatise on Cosmic Fire might be formulated in the following terms.
These postulates are simply extensions of the three fundamentals to be found in the Proem in the first volume of
the Secret Doctrine by H. P. Blavatsky.1 Students are recommended to study them carefully; in this way their
understanding of the Treatise will be greatly aided.
There is one Boundless Immutable Principle; one Absolute Reality which, antecedes all manifested

The First Cosmic Logos, impersonal and unmanifested, the precursor of the Manifested.
The Second Cosmic Logos, Spirit-Matter, Life, the Spirit of the Universe.
The Third Cosmic Logos, Cosmic Ideation, the Universal World-Soul.

numberless Universes comprising countless Manifesting Stars and Solar Systems.
Each Solar System is the manifestation of the energy and life of a great Cosmic Existence, Whom we call, for
lack of a better term, a Solar Logos.

Holy Spirit . Form . Active Intelligence . Negative
Each of these three is also triple in manifestation, making therefo
