Just reread your post - do you think KH was referring to 16,000 years from 1898 when he wrote this. I get the idea that we should subtract 10,000 from 16,000 to get a date for the next one.????

Hi Cass,
you have intermixed it. Poseidonis was 10,000 years ago. Our racial fate, the turning point is in the future in 16,000 years, cp. SD II:330:

"He knows nothing, through exact Science, of what took place nearly 10,000 years ago; yet he may find consolation in the knowledge or -- if he so prefers -- speculation on the fate of every one of the modern nations he knows of -- about 16,000 years hence." 
http://www.sacred- the/sd/sd2- 1-19.htm

So as HPB otherwise states that this turning point or racial cataclysm takes place in the middle of each 4th sub-race, it is quite clear that Tingley, Fussell and de Purucker have the right interpretation of HPB's statements, while Besant, Leadbeater and Jinarajadasa have the wrong interpretation.

I think that it is 16000 years from the sinking of Poseidon. This subject should be explored rather than argued on who is more accurate - I will happily admit I was wrong if I can get to the truth of it.

Dear Nigel,

in the same way you read HPB you may also read the Holy Bible or the Lotus Sutra or the Bhagavad Gita.
To me you have not quoted her exactly, you just have given the letter, not the spirit.
It is only your mindset that you are under the illusion that HPB wrote what you think.

And you have not explained of which sub-race HPB in your quote speaks.

It seems you have no idea what esotericism is or what a blind is, alsthough HPB explained it several times and although HPB openly stated somewhere in the Secret Doctrine that all numbers and figures concerning cycles are not given openly.

Nowhere said any of HPB's Mahatmas that we are in the 5th sub-race as Besant did.
The reason is that the Mahatmas grasp the teachings they teach.
They know that -as HPB also wrote - that the middle point of the sub-race and their cataclysms come in 16,000 years from now.
That alone is sufficent alone for the thinking part of the theosophists to know in which sub-race we are.

You seem not to consider that there is more knowledge as you have observed so far. That is Hinayana, while HPB served the Mahayana path.

Dear Frank

You write, "But you are free to have your own interpretation 
of HPB."

Thank you. But I am merely quoting exactly what she has written 
and do not see any "blinds" that you suggest. Moreover the quotes 
from the Mahatmas appear to verify her statements.
