First define the Masters, but however defined, whether mytholigical or
not, by what token do we know that they *are* the "highest product in
evolution"? If true, then their saying so is token enough, but it's a
circular proposition that cannot - by definition - be contested, or tested.

Evoluion (via reincarnation) doesn't make sense, IMO, but again, such a
view does not negate the proposition that the Masters are the logical
product of evolution.
..... unless of course one believes that the Masters know the last word
on everything, and what they say is therefore always true: but that would
not be theosophy, but faith without evidence, the very kind of "blind"
religious view that HPB condemned.
