Bill,

Your level of  truthfulness is still below the sea level

but your language seems to have improved. Carlos.

Carlos,

You say that I mention "H. P. Blavatsky's stinking corpse." You use
quotation marks around this sentence as though you are quoting me
directly and accurately. Do you even realize that you are not? You
are quoting your inaccurate recollection of what you thought I must have
said, based on your psychological need to dismiss me as an insignificant
disturbance to your world-view. If your memory were accurate, or if you
bothered to check your facts you would also note that it was Steve and
not Chuck who tried to remind me that HPB's body was cremated. Pointing
out these erroneous recollections of yours is important. In doing so,
I am giving you the opportunity to realize that when you are not
looking, a part of you is reinterpreting and rearranging the actual
events of the past into a satisfactory bouquet that smells like
spring-time to you.

In addition, despite my subsequent efforts to identify my post as a
directly proportional parody of the "nice" post you sent about your
brother Paul and my admitting forthrightly that in my post I was telling
lies at about the same rate as you, and despite my further comments to
clarify that my reference to decaying corpse and dead carcass was a
metaphor for her body of literature ( an admittedly failed metaphor for
sure), you choose to ignore these points because you do not wish to see
your post to Paul for what it really is (an attempt to shoot the
messenger), but instead wish to remember it only for what you intended
it to be (a defense of HPB).

We each have a human tendency to reconstruct history to suit our
present needs. Some are aware of this tendency, while others continue
in ignorance.

peace,


bill
