1. Law of Chemical Affinity.

A Treatise on Cosmic Fire , DIVISION F. – THE LAW OF ATTRACTION


1. The Law of Chemical Affinity. This law governs the soul aspect in the mineral kingdom. It concerns the marriage of the atoms, and the romance of the elements. It serves to perpetuate the life of the mineral kingdom and to preserve its integrity.

Although the above is the only mention of the Law of Chemical Affinity, AAB does mention “chemical affinity” a number of times in her writings, e.g.:

Much will be learned along this line when electricity and colored lights are more freely used in experimental stations. Sex, in the mineral kingdom, or chemical affinity, is the display in that kingdom of the second type of magnetic force; in the vegetable kingdom the same thing can be studied in the seed life, and in the fertilisation processes of all plants. Neptune, the God of the Waters, has a curious relationship to our planetary Logos, and also to the Entity Who is the informing life of the second kingdom. -A Treatise on Cosmic Fire , III. RESULTS OF ITS ACTIVITY. – Part 2

Those emanations, of a purely physical kind which are responsible for that chemical affinity between one animal body and another which produces the coming together of the sexes. It is an aspect of animal magnetism and is the response of the cells to the call of other cells, acting under the Law of Attraction and Repulsion. -A Treatise on White Magic , THE CENTRES, ENERGIES AND RAYS

It is the breathing out and the breathing in of the process of divine existence and manifestation. It is that which lies behind the science of chemical affinity, of the relation of the polar opposites, and of the marriage relation, whether that of men and women or of the soul and its expression, the personality. It is the cause of the sex relation in the world, which works under the great Law of Attraction and Repulsion. -Esoteric Psychology – Volume I , 3. The Animal Kingdom – Part 1
