Ch 9

The Cause of the Genesis of the Moon
Beelzebub began his tale as follows:
“After we arrived on the planet Mars where we were directed to
exist, we began slowly to settle down there.
“We were still fully absorbed in the bustle of organizing everything
externally necessary for a more or less tolerable existence
in the midst of that Nature absolutely foreign to us, when suddenly,
on one of the very busiest days, the whole planet Mars
was shaken, and a little later such an ‘asphyxiating stink’ arose
that at first it seemed that everything in the Universe had been
mixed up with something, one might say ‘indescribable.’
“Only after a considerable time had passed and when the said
stink had gone, did we recover and gradually make out what
had happened.
“We understood that the cause of this terrible phenomenon
was just that same planet Earth which from time to time approached
very near to our planet Mars and which therefore we
had possibilities of observing clearly, sometimes even without a
“For reasons we could not yet comprehend, this planet, it transpired,
had ‘burst’ and two fragments detached from it had flown
off into space.
“I have already told you that this solar system was then still
being formed and was not yet ‘blended’ completely with what is
called ‘The-Harmony-of-Reciprocal-Maintenance-of-All-Cosmic-
“It was subsequently learned that in accordance with this said’
Cosmic-Concentrations’ there had also to
in this system a comet of what is called Vast orbit’
still existing
and named the comet ‘Kondoor.’
“And just this very comet, although it was then already concentrated,
was actualizing its ‘full path’ for only the first time.
“As certain competent Sacred Individuals also later confidentially
explained to us, the line of the path of the said comet had
to cross the line on which the path of that planet Earth also lay;
but as a result of the erroneous calculations of a certain Sacred
Individual concerned with the matters of World-creation and
World-maintenance, the time of the passing of each of these
through the point of intersection of the lines of their
paths coincided, and owing to this error the planet Earth and the
comet ‘Kondoor’ collided, and collided so violently that from this
shock, as I have already told you, two large fragments were broken
off from the planet Earth and flew into space.
“This shock entailed these serious consequences because on
account of the recent arising of this planet, the atmosphere which
might have served as a buffer in such a case had not yet had
time to be completely formed upon it.
And, my boy, our ENDLESSNESS was also immediately informed
of this general cosmic misfortune.
“In consequence of this report, a whole commission consisting
of Angels and Archangels, specialists in the work of World-creation
and World-maintenance, under the direction of the Most
Great Archangel Sakaki, was immediately sent from the Most Holy
Sun Absolute to that solar system ‘Ors.’
“The Most High Commission came to our planet Mars since it
was the nearest to the planet Earth and from this planet of ours
began its investigations.
“The sacred members of this Most High Commission at once
quieted us by saying that the apprehended danger
of a catastrophe on a great cosmic scale had already passed.
“And the Arch-Engineer Archangel Algamatant was good
enough to explain to us personally that in all probability what
had happened was as follows:
“‘The broken-off fragments of the planet Earth had lost the
momentum they received from the shock before they had
reached the limit of that part of space which is the sphere of this
planet, and hence, according to the “Law of Falling,” these fragments
had begun to fall back towards their fundamental piece.
“‘But they could no longer fall upon their fundamental piece,
because in the meantime they had come under the cosmic law
called “Law-of-Catching-Up” and were entirely subject to its influence,
and they would therefore now make regular elliptic orbits
around their fundamental piece, just as the fundamental
piece, namely, the planet Earth, made and makes its orbit around
its sun “Ors.”
“‘And so it will always continue, unless some new unforeseen
catastrophe on a large scale changes it in one way or another.
“‘Glory to Chance . . .’ concluded His Pantemeasurability,‘the
harmonious general-system movement was not destroyed by
all this, and the peaceful existence of that system “Ors” was soon
“But nevertheless, my boy, this Most High Commission, having
then calculated all the facts at hand, and also all that might happen
in the future, came to the conclusion that although the fragments
of the planet Earth might maintain themselves for the time
being in their existing positions, yet in view of certain so-called
‘Tastartoonarian-displacements’ conjectured by the Commission,
they might in the future leave their position and bring about a
large number of irreparable calamities both for this system ‘Ors’
and for other neighboring solar systems.
“Therefore the Most High Commission decided to take certain
measures to avoid this eventuality.
“And they resolved that the best measure in the given case
would be that the fundamental piece, namely, the planet Earth,
should constantly send to its detached fragments, for their maintenance,
the sacred vibrations ‘askokin.’
“This sacred substance can be formed on planets only when
both fundamental cosmic laws operating in them, the sacred
‘Heptaparaparshinokh’ and the sacred ‘Triamazikamno,’ function,
as is called, ‘Ilnosoparno,’ that is to say, when the said sacred
cosmic laws in the given cosmic concentration are deflected independently
and also manifest on its surface independently—

of course independently only within certain limits.
“And so, my boy, inasmuch as such a cosmic actualization was
possible only with the sanction of HIS ENDLESSNESS, the Great
Archangel Sakaki, accompanied by several other sacred members
of that Most High Commission, set off immediately to HIS
ENDLESSNESS to beseech Him to give the said sanction.
“And afterwards, when the said Sacred Individuals had obtained
the sanction of HIS ENDLESSNESS for the actualization of the
Ilnosoparnian process on that planet also, and when this process
had been actualized under the direction of the same Great
Archangel Sakaki, then from that time on, on that planet also,
just as on many others, there began to arise the ‘Corresponding,’
owing to which the said detached fragments exist until now without
constituting a menace for a catastrophe on a great scale.
“Of these two fragments, the larger was named ‘Loonderperzo’
and the smaller ‘Anulios’; and the ordinary three-brained beings
who afterwards arose and were formed on this planet also at
first called them by these names; but the beings of later times
called them differently at different
periods, and in most recent times the larger fragment has come
to be called Moon, but the name of the smaller has been gradually
“As for the beings there now, not only have they no name at all
for this smaller fragment, but they do not even suspect its existence.
“It is interesting to notice here that the beings of a continent on
that planet called ‘Atlantis,’ which afterwards perished, still knew
of this second fragment of their planet and also called it Anulios,’
but the beings of the last period of the same continent, in whom
the results of the consequences of the properties of that organ
called ‘Kundabuffer’—about which, it now seems, I shall have to
explain to you even in great detail—had begun to be crystallized
and to become part of their common presences, called it
also ‘Kimespai,’ the meaning of which for them was ‘Never-Allowing-
“Contemporary three-brained beings of this peculiar planet do
not know of this former fragment of their planet, chiefly because
its comparatively small size and the remoteness of the place of
its movement make it quite invisible to their sight, and also because
no ‘grandmother’ ever told them that once upon a time
any such little satellite of their planet was known.
“And if any of them should by chance see it through their good,
but nevertheless child’s toy of theirs called a telescope, he would
pay no attention to it, mistaking it simply for a big aerolite.
“The contemporary beings will probably never see it again, since
it has become quite proper to their nature to see only unreality.
“Let us give them their due; during recent centuries they have
really most artistically mechanized themselves to see nothing
“So, my boy, owing to all the aforesaid, there first arose
on this planet Earth also, as there should, what are called
‘Sirnilitudes-of-the-Whole,’ or as they are also called
‘Microcosmoses,’ and further, there were formed from these
‘Microcosmoses,’ what are called ‘Oduristelnian’ and
‘Polormedekhtic’ vegetations.
“Still further, as also usually occurs, from the same
‘Microcosmoses’ there also began to be grouped various forms
of what are called ‘Tetartocosmoses’ of all three brain-systems.
“And among these latter there then first arose just those biped
‘Tetartocosmoses’ whom you a while ago called ‘slugs.’
“About how and why upon planets, during the transition of the
fundamental sacred laws into ‘Ilnosoparnian,’ there arise ‘Similitudes-
of-the-Whole’ and about what factors contribute to the
formation of one or another of these, as they are called, ‘systems
of being-brains,’ and also about all the laws of World-creation
and World-maintenance in general, I will explain to you specially
some other time.
“But meanwhile, know that these three-brained beings arising
on the planet Earth, who interest you, had in them in the beginning
the same possibilities for perfecting the functions for the
acquisition of being-Reason as have all other forms of
‘Tetartocosmoses’ arising throughout the whole Universe.
“But afterwards, just in the period when they also, as it proceeds
on other similar planets of our great Universe, were beginning
gradually to be spiritualized by what is called ‘being instinct,’
just then, unfortunately for them,there befell a misfortune which
was unforeseen from Above and most grievous for them.”
