Master K.H. wrote: "They Have Disturbed But Bats...."

"Vainly do your modern seers and their prophetesses, creep into
every cleft and crevice without outlet or continuity they chance to
see; and still more vainly, when once within do they lift up their
voices and loudly cry: 'Eureka! We have gotten a Revelation from the
Lord!' - - for verily have they nothing of the kind. They have
disturbed but bats [elementals, unprogressed Planetaries?], less
blind than their intruders; who, feeling them flying about, mistake
them as often for angels ? as they too, have wings! Doubt not, my
friend: it is but from the very top of those 'adamantine rocks' of
ours, not at their foot, that one is ever enabled to perceive the
whole Truth, by embracing the whole limitless horizon...."

"...none but the logician, the investigator, the dauntless
explorer should meddle with books like this. Such delvers
after truth have the courage of their opinions."
"...Contrast alone can enable us to appreciate things at
their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
"...in the world mental as in the world spiritual each man
must progress by his own efforts. The writer cannot do the
reader's thinking for him, nor would the latter be any the
better off if such vicarious thought were possible..."
