It would have been interesting if the Theosophical Society had been
established in 1975 instead of 1875 but with headquarters still at Adyar. I
say this, because India is one of the leading manufacturers of software,
Bangalore being its Silicon Valley. With the ease of editing on word
processors, W. Q. Judge, H.S. Olcott, Bertram and Archibald Keightley, and
others who helped HPB with The SD would have been freed up to concentrate on
their other theosophical projects. James Morgan Pryse, the printer and owner
of the HPB Press, would have been, no doubt, in desktop publishing.
THE LETTERS OF H.P. BLAVATSKY would have been the E-MAIL OF H.P. BLAVATSKY in
5 CD-ROMS, the SECRET DOCTRINE would have been 10 volumes instead of the
measly two (or three) volumes and on CD-ROM as well. The Masters would have
phenomenally produced e-mail from a mysterious and, here-to-for unknown web
browser in the Himalayas.
Intransigent TS board meetings would have taken place via AOL Flash Sessions,
bulletin boards, or e-mail chat rooms, thereby eliminating the chances of WJQ,
and later R. Steiner and perhaps Alice Bailey, from leaving the Society. Well,
the possibilities are endless.....
