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

Hi Vladimir,

Please forgive the delay. Our art gallery had an opening this weekend 
and that kept me quite busy for a few days. Here is our new webpage, 
just published, if anyone wants to take a look:

As I read the passage you quoted in the context of  lesson 124, 
"Determination of Sex," in "Teachings of the Temple," I take the race 
of giants in question to refer to men as they were developed by means 
of black magic by women in the early centures of Kali Yuga. That 
would put this development some 6000 years ago, if I am not mistaken. 
As I read the references to a race of giants as mentioned in "The 
Secret Doctrine," I take the description generally to apply to an 
earlier  Root Race, which would have been in existence much longer 

Does this make sense? I have been studying this material for most of 
my adult life, but am definitely no expert. It's a continual 
discovery for me.
