Hi to all on Theos-talk

I'm fortunate, and humbled, to be of service to everyone on Theos-talk.
Thank you Ramadass, for the reminder of how old I am. Theos-l was
1993.... I thought I was supposed to be 'wiser' by now?? All I got was
Actually, Theos-l opened a window for communication when none existed.
There was an explosion of ideas and feelings about many things. People
freely confronted everything and anything, and we all had a rather grand
time discovering that Theosophists often/usually disagree about most
everything as well as using very non-theosophical mannerisms. Bits and
Bytes flew, Modems burned-out .... I gained tremendous insight into
the arcane and ancient terminology used by Madame Blavatsky. e.g.
I think it was John(?) who posted today about Mead (G.R.S.) as a
historical name in Theosophy. I did see in Wiki:
"In March 1909 Mead founded the Quest Society, composed of 150 defectors
of the Theosophical Society and 100 other new members. Very
intentionally this new society was planned to be an undogmatic approach
to the comparative study and investigation of religion, philosophy, and
science. The Quest Society had lectures at Kensington Town Hall in
central London but its most focused effort was in its publishing of /The
Quest: A Quarterly Review/ which ran from 1909-1931 with many contributors"
Only when I saw the excerpt... "Very intentionally ... planned to be an
undogmatic ..." only then did I really wonder if some old theoso-geezer
came back to haunt me. There is no known genetic relationship to the
great G.R.S.Mead to my knowledge.
In any case, MKR and I caught up with each other (again) on theosnet.
So, here I am.
I am currently living in Southwestern PA. I am doing some adjunct
teaching and tutoring for our local Community College. This is mostly in
Physics, Math, Chemistry and about anything else....
So, I look forward to being here.
p.s. Eldon Tucker started this discussion list. I am sure he is still
out there. Everyone should thank him for his excellent work.
I'll look you up on Theosnet..... or somewhere.
