"...the Adept evolves these shapes consciously...."

Master K.H. in one of his letters to A.O. Hume wrote:

...every thought of man upon being evolved passes into the inner 
world and becomes an active entity by associating itself -- 
coalescing, we might term it -- with an elemental; that is to say 
with one of the semi-intelligent forces of the kingdoms. It survives 
as an active intelligence, a creature of the mind's begetting, for a 
longer or shorter period proportionate with the original intensity 
of the cerebral action which generated it. Thus, a good thought is 
perpetuated as an active beneficent power; an evil one as a 
maleficent demon. And so man is continually peopling his current in 
space with a world of his own, crowded with the offsprings of his 
fancies, desires, impulses, and passions, a current which reacts 
upon any sensitive or and nervous organisation which comes in 
contact with it in proportion to its dynamic intensity. The Buddhist 
calls this his "Skandha," the Hindu gives it the name of "Karma"; 
the Adept evolves these shapes consciously, other men throw them off
