H. P. Blavatsky expressed a key holistic thought
in remarking that every aspect of the worldview she formulated is interrelated with every other aspect. The interconnectedness of the myriad metaphysical concepts and facts theosophy or similar systems provide, however, makes it difficult to deeply understand any one of its particular aspects without first understanding the system and its worldview as a whole. Here is where epitomes and outlines prove valuable. By depicting the grand sweep of the cyclic world process in a few graphic words, an epitome lets the reader see the whole picture in a single glance.
This section draws on the core principles of the philosophy and metaphysics of Wholeness in epitomizing as clearly and succinctly as possible the main features of the cyclic world process. Throughout it certain key ideas, principles and propositions will be reiterated in different ways, each time contributing toward the formulation of a broader, yet still epitomized, picture of the world process, the Cycle of Being.
Our spiraling epitome consists of three widening sweeps. The first is based on a symbolic depiction of the "eternal motion of the Great Breath" presented in Blavatsky's Secret Doctrine.
The second focuses on the dynamic aspect of the world process. Then a broader sweep examines the involutionary and evolutionary activities operating within it.
