ML prophecy, a theosophical Question

A ML Prophecy, "Queer theosophical question"
I think you have to make some very
serious judgements, but that doesn't have
anything necessarily to do with "hatred,"
although you might start hating if
things you care about get destroyed.
Like I said, too, in reference to
RD's comments - some very FEW have
the strength to rise above it all.
Somerset Maughan, who I was told was
homosexual, wrote a great spiritual book
in "The Razor's Edge." The teachers
say somewhere about having to appear
"cold" in their judgements, or for the
sake of practical reality ignore sometimes
merely human sentiment. If I saw a
homosexual being persecuted in his common
rights as a human, I'd defend the homo-sexual
as fast as anybody else. (which doesn't
include legal "marriage.")
Below is a short article on a prophecy
in the MLs that came true. The teacher
said we would "hear" certain planets before
we "saw" them - which came true with
radio-astronomy, which is a sort of
"hearing" aimed at space instead of
seeing through a telescope.

"Mingled among the visible stars
in our galaxy and beyond are strange,
huge objects that cannot be seen and
might never have been detected if they
did not make a curious cosmic 'noise.'
These are the 'radio stars' which emit
a faint 'hiss' that is picked up by
radio receivers." (Life, Nov. 17, 1952.)
This fact was discovered by K.C. Jansky,
in 1932. At the present time nearly
100 of these "radio stars" are known.
The sun also emits radio waves - a
steady noise rising to cresendo during
sunspot crises. The sound of the sun
shows six gaseous envelopes besides
the 1 seen. The same sound is heard
also from ordirary stars.
In August, 1932, Theosophy Magazine
published an excerpt from the Los Angeles
Times: (April 24, 1932)
Scientists broadcast for the first time
tonight what they believed was the sound
The beam of Venus was picked up from
the eyepiece of a telescope by a
photoelectric cell, amplified into a
microphone and broadcast over a radio
network. The sound resembled that of
a sustained high note from a violin.
The experiment was conducted in the
general science laboratory of New York
University by Prof. Albert Sheppard,
assisted by Dr. E.E. Free.
These recent discoveries are in the
nature of a prophecy fulfilled, for as
early as 1882, the Mahatma K.H. wrote
in a letter to A.P. Sinnett:
"Science will hear sounds from certain
planets before she sees them. This is
a prophecy.... (MLs, pp. 169-70, TUP) Not
all of the Intra-Mercurial planets, nor
yet those in the orbit of Neptune,** are
yet discovered, although they are strongly
suspected. We know that such exist and
where they exist; and that there are
innumerable planets "burnt out" they say
- in obscuration we say; - planets in
formation and not yet luminous, etc.
- From Theosophical Notes, July, 1953
[[** I believe Pluto, now no longer a "planet"
discovered in the 1930's, crosses the orbit
of Neptune, as also do innumerable large asteroids.]]
