She seems to have been one of the most ambitious people there ever were ... Seems to me as if she wanted to have her cake and, at the same time, wanted it in the fridge, in that she admitted she was offering an "exoteric version," didn't she ... so that, in effect, seems to me she was keeping the "esoteric version" (as it were) in the fridge (in as much as it could not be exoterized, or consumed exoterically or "normally" or dualistically) while offering the "exoteric version" as if it were the real cake that people could really eat or make use of (ie, "applicably enough," as it were) ... That, seems to be, spells ambition of a kind that, to me, seems very interesting, basically.
