The entire Triloki (tri means three, loki means worlds) is the creation of the drop, which Dr. Stone refers to as “The Vital Creative Flame.” The drop has separated from the ocean and is now a ‘compounded ‘ creation (things become complicated). This means it is no longer One but many.
This process was compounded by first the coming of the drop, then maya came and merged with it (maya includes space and things in space, kal as time – past, present and future, and the law of karma - cause and effect). Then the three gunas (conditions of matter – positive, negative and neutral) and the five elements combined, and all ten mingled to give form to this creation. Ten includes: the drop, maya, the 3 gunas, and the 5 elements – ether, air, fire, water and earth.
This is the root form and cause of Triloki - the three worlds (causal, astral and physical) and the 4 forms of life (mammals conceived in the womb; birds, fish and reptiles hatched from eggs; insects, worms and parasites born with the change of seasons and decay of organic matter; and vegetation born from soil).
Whenever there is compounding, thought must also exist. When there is one and only one there is no thought.
The geometric designs building in the intra-uterine life are along lines of energy and matter, polarized, and made as a structure and its function for the use of consciousness, like a diver wearing a suit. The drop - the vital creative flame, functions through the body as a complete system of communication and expression through the mind, the emotions and senses. There are five senses and five motor functions to carry out action. The five senses and five motor functions are related to the five elements.
For motor expression there is the mouth for speech - ether, the five fingers for the skill and dexterity to the hands and five toes to give balance and grounding - air, the thighs for running / movement – fire, the organs of reproduction – water, and the organs of elimination – earth.
The five sense we are familiar with: ether – hearing, air – touch, fire -sight, water - taste, and earth – smell.
These five great elements as they combine into matter have certain ‘conditions.’ These are more like the consistency of matter more than their biochemical makeup like as in the chemistry chart of the hundred and some odd elements. They also form five energy centers along the spine.

The fivefold combination creates twenty-five factors
From the above chart when earth combines with earth, bones are formed. When earth is combined with water as the dominant element, blood is formed. When earth is the dominant element and combines with water, flesh is formed, etc.
