Causeless cause (or all cause) in Theosophy, is 'An Omnipresent, Eternal, Boundless, and Immutable Principle'. It is the theosophical idea of God, which involves the negation of everything. The principle is described as the central point from which all emerges and around and toward which all gravitates.
Causeless cause is synonymous with 'the absolute,' which 'Proto-logos' is often confused with, but it is not: 'first' denotes finite bound, but causeless cause is unbounded. There are numerous other descriptions such as how it is also equated to the form of the absolute Being and Non-Being, or the "great Architect and to concepts such as Divine Love and pure awareness or "consciousness at rest". Hindus and Theosophists call it Para Brahman (Parabrahm). Formless Parabrahm is said to periodically emanate Logoi, which are hence not causeless, but are non-eternal except in cycles of emanation, existence, pralaya (dissolution). In each cycle, causeless cause causes the Logoic Monad to move into action, which develops into the Logoic triad/triple manifestation, and the heptad (i.e. seven; prajapatis (Devas) or Elohim) which continue the cosmic chain of cause and effect. It has been shown the causeless cause is so described in some religious cosmogenesis accounts.
