Glad to hear from you.
I have been around members and non-members of TS for quite some time. Like
everywhere else, you will find many with very fixed crystallized ideas and
beliefs and superstitions and prejudices (some very very subtle); after all
it is their life and they have a right to believe what they want to; so long
as they do not try to convert others to their way of thinking and belief.
After all it is our life that is important and over the years all of us
