No, we aren't going to do anything that silly.  We're going to get rid  of 
the second law of thermodynamics.

In 1925, the  Theosophical world went stark, staring mad.

plans for a new  universe)

In 1925 Annie Besant said  the following to the Theosophical world:

"And now I have to give you,  by command of the King, His message,
and some of the messages of the Lord  Maitreya and His great
Brothers. . . what I am saying, as to matter of  announcement, is
definitely at the command of the King whom I  serve.

His taking possession of His chosen vehicle . . . will be  soon.
Then He will choose, as before, His twelve apostles . . . and  their
chief, the Lord Himself. He has already chosen them, but I have  only
the command to mention seven who have reached the stage of  Arhatship,
Who were the 'Arhats'?

The first two, my brother Charles  Leadbeater and myself, . . . C.
Jinarajadasa, . . . George Arundale, Oscar  Kollerstrom, . . . Rukmini

I left out one and must  leave out another. Naturally, our
Krishnaji [Jiddu Krishnamurti] was one,  but he is to be the vehicle
of the Lord. And the other is one who is very  dear to all of us, as
to the whole Brotherhood: Bishop James Wedgwood. He  had borne his
crucifixion before the seal of Arhatship was set upon him by  his King.
Those are the first seven of the twelve whom He has chosen,  with
Himself as the thirteenth. 'Ye call me Master and Lord, and ye  do
well, for so I am.'

Now the wonder may come into your mind:  H.P.B. was the only one
who was really announced as the messenger of the  Master. Since then
the world has grown a good deal, and it is possible that  while the
few may be repelled, many thousands will be attracted to  the
Christ. . . . Whatever the effect, since He has said it, it is
done.  . ."

The Theosophist, November, 1925

Now compare and contrast  Mrs. Besant's statement with what HPB wrote
in 1889 about a certain  Pseudo-Theosophical group:

". . . A new and rapidly growing danger. . .  is threatening . . . the
spread of the pure Esoteric Philosophy and  knowledge. . . . I allude
to those charlatanesque imitations of Occultism  and Theosophy. . . . "

"By pandering to the prejudices of people, and  especially by adopting
the false ideas of a personal God and a personal,  carnalized Saviour,
as the groundwork of their teaching, the leaders of  this 'swindle'
(for such it is) are endeavoring to draw men to them and  in
particular to turn Theosophists from the true path."

". . . A  close examination will assuredly reveal. . . materials
largely stolen . . .  from Theosophical writings. . . [and] distorted
and falsified so as to be  palmed off on the unwary as revelations of
new and undreamed of truths. But  many will neither have the time nor
the opportunity for such a thorough  investigation; and before they
become aware of the imposture they may be  led far from the Truth."

". . . Nothing is more dangerous to Esoteric  Truth than the garbled
and distorted versions disfigured to suit the  prejudices and tastes
of men in general."

Quoted from Blavatsky's  E.S. Instruction No. I., 1889. These extracts
are omitted from the version  of Instruction No. I as found in HPB's
