Often it can be difficult even for scientific researchers who have given much energy, time 
and reputation into a particular hypothesis to then accept or even consider that it may in 
fact be wrong.

All of us need to be careful that we don't fall into that trap.

A very important reason not to put HPB & her writings or the Mahatma's on too higher 
pedestal as we may find more compelling information may come our way.

Blind pride and acceptance in any tradition or belief can make us gullible and/or arrogant 
leading to a closed and rigid mindset.
