In that article, HPB clearly states that it all depends on the definition you use.
And she never use the words "Divine all" in that article.
Yet Blavatsky never used the word "God" in excess in her writings like W. C. Leadbeater and Annie Besant and other later writers did, without explaining the true definition of ParaBrahman as being beyond thoughts and conditioning. Blavatsky ever sought to avoid coining ParaBrahman with the brutal materialistic male teological expression of "God". Other later theosophical writers sought it seems to do the opposite. And they crept closer to the Vatican instead of distancing themselves from it in their writings.

Agreed. I would refer all readers to Blavatsky's article "What is
theosophy" (1879) from which follows that she regarded theosophists
all those who accept idea of one basic reality (Divine All) and form
their view not on a basis of revelation or authority but on their own
