My answer remains that to answer your question I would need first-hand
knowlege of the Great Brotherhood, so I did not answer it.  And if the
question is addressed only to Theosophists, I cannot answer it anyway.
What I really meant to say was that I am an unsuitable person to attempt
to answer your question, having nothing of validity or of interest to
say, so I opted out.

No at all irrational for me, because I am one of the list lurkers who
does not discuss interpretations of what others like those have said in
the manner you mean, unless as a natural course because I have
internalized what I have read and heard and as a matter of course
regurtitate it in my own words.  So I opted out.  Maybe feeble, but far
better in my book than shooting off my mouth about something of which I
know nothing.  Let's call it discretionary and leave me at that, please.

You could be right.  I've not seen this nodding, but have seen other
circumstances of nodding for posture and find it sad and time wasting.
Closure between us on this, I hope?
