<...Throughout my studies I have tried to obtain my proofs in a valid form.
What I have seen and experienced is, therefore, very satisfactory to myself,
though mainly valueless to others.
Each must see for himself, and can alone convince himself....
I said I wanted some tangible proof that he had actually been there, and
that I had not been seeing a mere illusion or maya conjured up by H. P. B.
When I asked him to leave me some tangible evidence that I had not been the
dupe of a vision, but that he had indeed been there...
I now exhibit the turban which he took off his head, when I DEMANDED of him
some tangible proof of his visit.... (caps added)
I wish I had some tangible object to prove to me that he has really been
here, something that I might handle after he is gone!"
I have been blessed with meetings with this Master and others since then
....However others less fortunate may doubt, I KNOW....>

These words from HS Olcott may give one pause to consider whether Olcott
thought one would be wise to believe and accept the masters as real based on
his or anyone's elses eye witness testimony. He constantly asked for proof
of what he, himself was seeing and so perhaps should we. Either one has met
a master and knows (and needs no written accounts of the eye witness
testimony of others) or one has not met a master and therefore (despite
reading a hundred eye witness testimonies of others) one does not know but
must rely instead on faith and belief.
