....and I am not so sure we forget everything we have learned as
I would suggest that the atoms contain memory, that atoms are a conglomeration of subjective matter into objective reality, and that as atoms can never be destroyed, at death they become scattered - this seems to be verified in that atoms are not governed by distance or time only location.Â This also provides a reasoning for reincarnation as these scattered atoms will once again, by magnetic attraction, become re-energized and reformed as a new body, in a new incarnation etc.
âThe tanhic elementals may be otherwise described as the emotional and mental thought-deposits, as Patanjali did; and these remain after the second death -- and before the ego's entering the devachan -- stamped upon the various kinds of life-atoms which had functioned on all the lower planes of man's constitution. Some of these tanhic elementals or life-atoms peregrinate, and finally are psychomagnetically attracted back to the reincarnating ego during its process of bringing forth a new astral form preceding rebirth. Others belong to the monadic substances of the auric egg, and consequently remain therein in a latent condition, to awaken only when the devachani leaves the devachan. Then these dormant tanhic elementals, in combination with the other life-atoms which had been peregrinating, combine in building up the new astral form that H.P.B. speaks of; and it is largely these two classes of tanhic life-atoms or elementals which compose the skandhas
(a > Sanskrit word meaning bundles or aggregates) of the man in his coming incarnation. And these skandhas are the various groups of mental, emotional, psychovital and physical characteristics which, when all collected together, make the new personality through which the higher man or egoic individuality works. They slowly begin to recombine and fall into their appropriate functions and places during the gestation period, continuing such 'fixation' in the womb, and finally after birth maturing as the entity grows to adulthood.*

>It is images, symbols, memories of experiences that one will take beyond, and certainly not the kind of knowledge imparted by acres/hectares of printed pages and hours of lectures!
>It is these things that must be the primary transmission of Theosophical gnosis. If there aren't such things kept as a precious inheritance by the TS, then the whole thing is a social club, and from the looks of it, a failed one at that.
>An Esoteric section is necessary if said knowledge is better imparted as a Mystery, not to exclude folks, but to make the transmission as literally impressive as it can be. Usually such a thing can be spoken of, but can never be fully known without passing through the procedure or initiation or whatever first. In other words, if you haven't been there, done that, and seen it, felt it, maybe even tasted and smelled it, you just won't know, even if you have the whole thing written out in front of you.
>But again, what was the core, life-changing experience that HPB and her friends had, and how is that being transmitted to us today? Is it? If not, why not?
