"Bear Witness!": Who Was the Real H.P.B.?

In May 1891, Julia Keightley had the following experience: 

"A few days after Madame Blavatsky died, H.P.B. awoke me at night.  
I raised myself, feeling no surprise, but only the sweet accustomed 
pleasure.  She held my eyes with her leonine gaze.  Then she grew 
thinner, taller, her shape became masculine; slowly then her 
features changed, until a man of height and rugged powers, stood 
before me, the last vestige of her features melting into his, until 
the leonine gaze, the progressed radiance of her glance alone 
remained.  The man lifted his head and said:  'Bear witness!' He 
then walked from the room, laying his hand on the portrait of H.P.B. 
as he passed." Reminiscences of H.P. Blavatsky and The Secret 
Doctrine, 1893, p. 127.
