There are other possibilities. For example, my belief is that a group
of people, sufficiently closely knit and with proper knowledge, can
develop a group monad, which, although people may leave and join the
group, continues on. I believe that the Mahatams are such a group, and
when they "act as Mahatmas", they are acessing this monad. Therefore,
who the individuals are is relatively unimportant.
