Thought this might be of interest to those of us who think it's about time 
for science to get wise about theosophical truths.



Open meeting, London, England, Saturday 31st May 2003

Materialistic science on its own simply cannot explain the mysteries 

of human consciousness. It urgently needs to be extended to include 

more subtle levels of reality such as those perceived by mystics.

At this extraordinary public meeting, distinguished speakers with both

scientific and mystical expertise will examine the works of Rudolf 

Steiner, Alice Bailey, Emanuel Swedenborg and H.P. Blavatsky, and 

asses how these writers' inner understanding of the nature of 

consciousness might shed light on today's debate on the emerging 

science of consciousness.

This event is the first of its kind to be arranged jointly between the

Anthroposophical Society, the Lucis Trust, The Swedenborg Society and 

The Foundation ForTheosophical Studies.
