Peter, I think you did a great service to this list in pointing out the
development of the T.P.
I thing is important for some of the theosophists to become aware of what is
going on in the world of science, religion and arts. To be on that 'watch

In the SD, I, 612 reads:

 "... and one by one facts and processes in Nature's workshop are permitted to
find their way into the exact Sciences, while mysterious help is given to rare
individuals in unravelling its arcana."

For sure, us theosophists are not doing to much 'unravelling its arcana'
Most of us found in Theosophy an ethical system, a philosophy of life, and an
explanation of most processses of Nature. And 'living' it,  applying it,
sharing it, can keep us busy for several lifetimes.

certain  people get. I like to study that, and see how  Scientists, modern

Tibetan religion and Devachan. I just don't have the time to study all. And few
email clarify a lot and provoke more questions.

Thanks to all,
