Put back in context, all that meant was that their consistent metaphysics
gave me the inspiration (over 30 years ago) to search for a logical and
mathematically (geometrically and topologically) consistent scientific theory
that would explain how the visual system (as a general case for all sensory
experiences of consciousness) worked -- in spite of modern science's
inability to use its currently accepted reductive material scientific
theories to explain it. Also, the "hard problems" of explaining the
experience or "qualia" of consciousness and its mechanisms, posed by Chalmers
almost ten years ago, is still unanswered by current quantum or relativity
physics theories -- even though those problems have become one of the most
important new studies of theoretical and practical science -- with thousands
of papers and millions of words written on it without any reasonable or
As for my being a "Shaman," that appellation was given me (perhaps tongue in
cheek) by my associates some years ago -- since my healing techniques, which
invariably appear to work (although purely psychological, between us "fakirs"
:-), also appears to be some sort of shamanistic "magic" to the laymen who
experience or observe it.
However, that has nothing to do with my serious (albeit "amateur") scientific
work in clarifying the laws and mechanisms of conscious perception. But,
then, Newton was also an amateur scientist when he discovered gravity and
established the laws of motion (using the calculus he invented) that explain
ed it -- as was Da Vinci and Galileo, among other promethians of science who
weren't paid for their discoveries. :-)

Who said Blavatsky or anyone eles had or has any knowledge of "superstrings"?
(Which word, incidentally, has np meaning, except that it describes a
synthesis of the six separate string theory viewpoints -- now known as
M-brane theory.) So, what's wrong with saying that superstring/M-brane
theory has come close to verifying both my theory of ABC and the (six
viewpoint) metaphysics of HPB (which seem to be consistent with each other,
even if coincidentally)?
What credentials or scientific theory do you have to deny any of that? Also,
please tell us what "twisters" and "spiners" have to do with anything you are
talking about -- other than another of your cryptic diversionary tactics
using phony, non sequitur references, to appear as if you know what you re
talking about, and instill doubt in the minds of your readers about those
whose ideas you are attacking without any logical or scientific foundation?
For your information, I came up with the theory of ABC many years before I
knew anything about M-brane theory (which has only recently brought many
string theories together into one single eleven dimensional paradigm
reconciling relativity with quantum physics (that, standing alone, have never
been consistent with each other)... But which are, however (since the M-brane
synthesis), fully consistent with the origin and formation of the multi-fold
(multidimensional) coenergetic fields that I proposed more than 25 years ago
(which was based on "vibrating strings" or "rays" of force emanating from the
zero point long before I even heard of the first string theory).
So, what's wrong with my showing the consistency all that has with the
multi-fold "coadunate but not consubstantial" chakra field theories of
theosophy and other metaphysical teachings down through history? And, I
still wonder why it bothers you so much, and triggers such vehemen denials,
that the theosophical metaphysics might someday be "proved" scientifically
valid? (Or, are you a "Dugpa" in disguise, working on drowning out theosophy
and its ethical-moral principles for some purpose or other? :-)
>The chakras in fact belong to Indian Tantra.
If true, so what? FYI, chakras, in the theosophical (and meta-scientific)
sense, simply refer to the zero-point linkages between and connecting
adjacent "coadunate but not consubstantial" coenergetic fields (which,
incidentally, are synonymous with the neurological plexus or seven nerve
system junctions in the human body).

It seems to me that you're the one who's "mixed up." What has that got to
do with anything I theorize or say about its (the chakra systems) consistency
with what Blavatsky teaches on the same subject? Even though the
multidimensional "chakrafields" themselves are spherical, the chakra centers
do, in fact, form in a vertical hierarchy (not because the Tantrists say so)
-- but due to the triple cycle essential nature of their involution's --
which is clearly shown in my symbolic "chakrafield" diagrams, as well as
thoroughly explained in the Secret Doctrine. (That is, if you know how to
interpret metaphysical teachings beyond its dead letters and its filtering
through your material oriented preconceptions.)

Very interesting, if true... But, again, so what? Actually, our (ABC's,
HPB's, M-brane) theories of "chakras" (or zero point centers between
involved, multidimensional transcendental fields) can be broken down into 3,
4, 5. 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, and more "chakras" (or zero-point field center
junctions). Does that make any of the above interpretations wrong?

Again, all that being true or not -- what does it have to do with new
theories that are consistent (or not) with the old ones? Also, did HPB ever
claim that her theories were not based on older teachings of hermetic
metaphysics? FYI, the seven fold theory is completely consistent with all
scientific theories of harmonics of both sound and light, as well as with all
other radiant energies -- being based on fundamental cyclic spin, which is
the precursor of ALL vibrating energy fields. That would, of course, include
the "radiant" energies already scientifically proved to exist in the
zero-point vacuum of apparently "empty" space. How many times do you have to
hear these "facts" before you give up your unreasonable nd irrational
denials of theosophical foundational metaphysical ideas as well as of all
bona fide scientific theories that confirm or are consistent with them?

And, that non sequitur reference has already been covered in my previous
posts... So there's no reason to endlessly repeat myself (in spite of your
tendency to do so interminably...) Again, I might ask, what ax do you have
to grind and how many more "guilt by association" arguments do you have to
repeat to make your point? Which appears to be; Your denigrating of theosophy
as well as HPB, along with all scientific theories that seem to confirm them
-- for no apparent reason, as far as I can see, except, perhaps, your own
pique? (Or, is there a more sinister purpose?)
