Some words to ponder perhaps in light of recent and current postings?

"I hope to be permitted to do so much for you. If, for generations we 
have "shut out the world from the Knowledge of our Knowledge," it is 
on account of its absolute unfitness; and if, notwithstanding proofs 
given, it still refuses yielding to evidence, then will we at the End 
of this cycle retire into solitude and our kingdom of silence once 
more.... We have offered to exhume the primeval strata of man's 
being, his basic nature, and lay bare the wonderful complications of 
his inner Self ? something never to be achieved by physiology or even 
psychology in its ultimate expression ? and demonstrate it 
scientifically. It matters not to them, if the excavations be so 
deep, the rocks so rough and sharp, that in diving into that, to 
them, fathomless ocean, most of us perish in the dangerous 
exploration; for it is we who were the divers and the pioneers, and 
the men of science have but to reap where we have sown. It is our 
mission to plunge and bring the pearls of Truth to the surface; 
theirs ? to clean and set them into scientific jewels. And, if they 
refuse to touch the ill-shapen oyster-shell, insisting that there is 
[not], nor cannot be any precious pearl inside it, then shall we once 
more wash our hands of any responsibility before human-kind. For 
countless generations hath the adept builded a fane of imperishable 
rocks, a giant's Tower of INFINITE THOUGHT, wherein the Titan dwelt, 
and will yet, if need be, dwell alone, emerging from it but at the 
end of every cycle, to invite the elect of mankind to co-operate with 
him and help in his turn enlighten superstitious man. And we will go 
on in that periodical work of ours; we will not allow ourselves to be 
baffled in our philanthropic attempts until that day when the 
foundations of a new continent of thought are so firmly built that no 
amount of opposition and ignorant malice guided by the Brethren of 
the Shadow will be found to prevail."
Mahatma Letters to AP Sinnett No. 18 chronology of George Linton and 
Virginia Hanson.
