SUMMARY AND REVIEW

This summary, when completed with answers, gives you a comprehension of the
primary points of the chapter in the text.  Fill in the blanks with words or
phrases that complete the ideas.

"Gender is in __________________; __________________ has its Masculine and
__________________ Principle; __________________ manifests on all levels."
-- Summum

The great Seventh Summum Principle, the __________________ of Gender,
embodies the idea that there is ____________ manifest in everything.  The
__________________ and ______________ principle are ever present and active
in all phases of __________________, on each and every ______________ of
____________.  Point your ______________ to the fact that ______________, in
the Summum sense, and ____________ in the ordinary accepted use of the term,
are similar, but different in scope.

The word "______________" is derived from the ________________ root meaning
"to beget; to ________________; to ________________; to create; to

________________."  Gender is a result of the (__________________) of the TWO
Grand __________________, NOTHING and __________________.  A moments
consideration will show that the word has a much broader and more general
meaning than the term "__________."  Sex refers to the ____________
distinctions between ________________ and female living __________________.
Sex also refers to ______________, intercourse, ________________, and in this
context, every ______________ is a form of sex; an ____________ and
__________ relationship between ______________ things or __________________
points bonding in the same __________________ field (______________).

The office of ________________ is solely that of creating, producing,
________________, etc., and its ________________ are visible on every
________________ of ________________.  It is somewhat difficult to produce
________________ of this along __________________ lines, because
________________ has not yet __________________ this Principle as of
________________ application.  Still, some proofs are forthcoming from
__________________ sources.  There is a distinct __________________ of the
Principle of ______________ among the ________________ __________________,
such as electrons, the interactions of which form the basis of the
_____________ bond as your ______________ now knows it.  The formation of an
________________ compound (such as ____________ ______________, common table
salt) is caused by the ________________ between ________________ charged
particles.  That is to say, when ____________ gives up a negatively charged
___________ to chlorine, the ______________ becomes positively
________________; and when ______________ accepts the electron from
________________, the __________________ becomes negatively charged.  The
________________, sodium ______________, results because the ________________
(+) and ________________ (-) ions are strongly ________________ to one
another by their ________________ charges.  Thus, __________
__________________ come together and create or ________________ something
that is ______________ than either one of them could be by ________________.
"It takes the ________________ of ______________ to make ____________ --
SUMMUM."  The most ancient of Summum Teachings have always identified the
masculine principle of Gender with the ________________, and the feminine
with the so called negative points of __________________ -- POSSIBILITY and
NOTHING.

There is a ______________ to be made __________________ this identification.
The public ______________ has formed an entirely erroneous ________________
regarding the __________________ of the so called "________________" point
of ________________ or magnetized matter.  The word "__________________" has
______________ on the meaning of something ______________ and
__________________, as compared to "________________" which has the
________________ of being ____________ or ____________.  Nothing is further
from the real facts of ________________ phenomena.  The so called
________________ pole of the _______________ is really the ____________ in
and by which the __________________ or ______________ of ____________ forms
and energies are manifested.  There is ______________ ______________ about
it.  The best scientific _____________ now use the word "cathode" in place
of "________________."  The word cathode comes from the Greek root meaning,
"__________________; the path of generation, etc."  From the cathode pole
________________ the swarm of electrons.  The ________________, or
________________ pole, is the ______________ principle of electrical
________________.  You may substitute the word "__________________" for the
old term negative when ________________ of the point of ________________.  A
feminine ________________ becomes ________________ from, or rather leaves a
________________ particle and starts on a new ______________.  It actively
_____________ a ____________ with a ______________ particle, being urged by
the ______________ ________________ to create new forms of matter or energy
(______________).  This __________________ and uniting, what the
______________ term ____________ ________________ and bond ________________,
form the ______________ for the greater part of the ________________ of the
______________ world.  When the feminine particle ______________ with a
masculine ________________, a certain process is begun.  The feminine
particles ________________ (resonate) rapidly under the ________________ of
the masculine ______________, and circle ________________ around the
________________, resulting in the ________________ of a new ______________.
This new ________________ is composed of the ________________ of the
________________ and feminine (i.e. the ________________ charged
______________ and the negatively charged chlorine).  After the ____________
is ________________, a new entity ______________ and becomes a
________________ composition (i.e. sodium chloride), having certain
____________ but no longer manifesting the property of ____________
electricity.

The role of the __________________ principle seems to be that of directing a
certain ________________ energy toward the feminine principle and thus
______________ the ________________ processes.  The ________________
principle is the one always doing the active creative work -- and this is so
on all ______________.  Each principle is ________________ of operative
________________ without the assistance of the other.  In some ____________
forms, the two principles are ______________ within ________________
organism.  For that matter, everything in the ________________
________________ manifests both ______________.  There is always the
________________ present in the feminine form, and the __________________
present in the masculine ____________.  The Summum
Teachings include much regarding the operation of the ____________ principles
of ______________ in the production and ____________________ of various forms
of ______________, etc.
