In the Theosophical septenary model of the universe and man the seventh principle usually refers to the highest manifested principle. In cosmos it is sometimes referred to as Puruṣa, while in human beings it is Ātman:
The seventh principle . . . is called Atma when spoken of in connection with an individual and Purush when applied in its relation to the Universe—is the active male, for it is the CENTRE OF ENERGY acting through and upon its female vehicle, the sixth principle.
