Alan interjects: It can't be, unlless we must also "accept" that karma
has no connection whatever with justice.

HPB and CWL type theosophy do offer "explicit answers," but does
that make the answers correct? Answers to questions need to be
tested against *experience of the matter in question*.
Once upon a time, "The World is Flat" was a specific and universally
accepted answer. The vast majority of people I have come across in
what I am going to dare to call "the real world" have no idea
whatsoever what "theosophy" is, and most of those who do ask, can't
be bothered to go into it. My long gone Grandma studied nothing, and
treated religion as mumbo jumbo, yet in her latter years she was often
heard to say, "I can't wait to shuffle off these old bones."
That's *innate* human wisdom. We all have it, but much of the time we
are afraid to access it.
