Re[2]: Theos-World Race of giants -- a question for Adelasie

Well,  having  recently  re-read  HPB's  "Isis  Unveiled", "The Secret
Doctrine"  and several other works, I understood that, in general, the
farther we go into the past the larger we find the human body. And the
"race  of  giants", which gradually dwindled, was a natural outcome of
its  materialization.  If  in  the  Temple Teachings quoted below some
other "race of giants" was meant, could you tell us what was it?
