Re: Theos-World Concerning Secrecy - H. P. Blavatsky's Esoteric Instructions

Exoteric: Knowledge which is freely given to the masses (sort of 
like free grammar schooling for kids; government and society fit the 
bill, so poor individuals can still get it)

Esoteric: Knowledge which you have to pay money for (sort of like 
getting an expensive college degree, if you're first wealthy; higher 
education costs big bucks)

At least, that's how Exoteric and Esoteric knowledge are dispensed 
by the schools in the United States.  Take for example, the realms 
of medicine, law, management supervision or high-tech engineering.  
These are all esoteric realms of knowledge, which are not freely 
dispensed.  You better have the money.  These are the secret 
doctrines of corporate professionals.

But don't dare tote this knowledge without a corporate title and 
paper degree.  You must first be authorized.
