Amazingly this Legendary Cult Underground Station was closed in 1992
for an indefinite period, as the passenger lifts from street to platform
level had become unserviceable. Recognising the importance of this station
both to the transport system and to our cultural heritage, millions of pounds
were found to repair the lifts and give the station a makeover.

These are Cosmogenesis or the coming in existence of the Universe and
Anthropogenesis or the coming into existence of Mankind. Here are brief

When we contemplate the pageant of nature, we see her
at a work of building and un-building. From mineral
to bacterium and plant, from microbe to animal and man,
nature is busy at a visible work, step by step evolving
higher and more complex structures.
Though she may seem at first sight to work blindly
and mechanically, she has in reality a coherent
plan of action. Her plan is to evolve structures stage by
stage, so that the amount of time needed by a given
creature for its self-protection and sustenance
may be less and less with each successive generation.
The higher the structure is in its organization and
adaptability, the more time, and hence more energy,
there is free for other purposes of life than
The planetary chain consists of seven companion globes,
which for convenience of reference are named from the
first seven letters of the alphabet, A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.
We occupy globe D, the fourth in the chain. The course
of evolution begins on globe A, and proceeds by regular
stages through globes B, C, D, E, etc.
In the beginning,globe A was first evolved, and life
received a certaindegree of development upon it; then
globe B cameinto existence, and the life-wave removed
from globe A to B,where it went forward another stage;
then globe C wasevolved and received the life wave for
a still further stagein its progress; and so on, until at the
end of the first roundglobe G was evolved and furnished
the field for the highestdevelopment attainable in that round.
The first round - the first tour of the life-wave through the
seven globes from A to G - having been completed, the monads
- the life wave - passed again to globe A, and commenced
the second round, or the second tour through the chain.
Without following out details, it is enough to say that
three such rounds have been completed, and the fourth
round has commenced its sweep and isstill in progress; and
that we now occupy globe D in this fourth round.
Three times the life-wave has passed from globe A to globe G;
and has now reached globe D in its fourth tour through the chain.
The earth is one of seven globes, in respect to man's
consciousness only, because when he functions on one
of the seven he perceives it as a distinct globe and does
not see the other six.
This is in perfect correspondence with man himself who
has six other constituents of which only the gross body
is visible to him because he is now functioning on the Earth
-- or the fourth globe – and his body represents the Earth.
The whole seven "globes" constitute one single mass or great
globe and they all interpenetrate each other. But we have to
say "globe," because the ultimate shape is globular or spherical.
Each one of the globes is used by evolutionary law for the
development of seven races, and of senses, faculties and
powers appropriate to that state of matter: the experience
of the whole seven globes being needed to make
a perfect development.
Hence we have the Rounds and Races. The Round is a
circling of the seven centers of planetary consciousness;
the Race the racial development on one of those seven.
There are seven races for each globe, but the total of
forty-nine races only makes up seven great races,
the special septennate of races on each globe or planetary
center composing in reality one race of seven constituents
or special peculiarities of function and power.
Like everything else in the universe, this planetary cycle
is of a septenary nature, consisting of seven root changes
of state, which may, for convenience, be called "globes",
but should not be imagined to occupy different places in space,
but rather be thought of as images to represent changes of
state caused by the information of the nebulous and ethereal
planetary matter, which evolves from, and involves into, itself.
These seven globes interpenetrate one another, although
they are divided each from the other in degree, or state, just
as the seven principles of man or the seven planes of
consciousness, are separated. What is to be remembered,
however, is that it is a separation of state and not of locality.
If, then, everything is evolved, the word creation can only
be properly applied to any combination of things already in
existence, since the primordial matter or basis cannot be created.
