Dear Max and friends

Yes, it is more easy to read than to contemplate. (smile.)
I cannot promose I will write it this month. But I will look into it.
What Blavatsky tried to do was a failure to some and a success to others.
Some of us operate with evaluation of the impact of various authors and persons through the ages.
The truth is: Some authors and persons generate more impact on their generation and later centuries than others do. And in this sense Blavatsky's activities deserves a certain repsect - and for those who are concerned about altrusism - it certainly also deserves support, at least to a certain extend. Those who like to disparage Blavatsky's teachings often lack presenting any clear evidence to support their negative positions. The fact that human evolution and progress towards altruism is slow has to be recognized. But these are just my views.
