Mr Peter Merriott-----
You wrote----"almost all the posts you make to this group contain
reports of rumour and/or second hand slurs on people's character and
I've quoted first hand accounts, for example, on Mr W Judge & Mrs
Tingley. Where were rumors & second hand slurs? The second hand slurs
were in ULT's 1951 THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT on Mrs Tingley. I quoted ULT
source to contrast it with first hand accounts on same subject. This
is book Mr Dallas TenBroeck constantly advertises on this forum. Where
is your indignation about slurs, etc in ULT book?
Then----you wrote------ "It's the regular theme of aspersion and mockery
based on second hand reports that weave in and out of your posts that I
am querying." Mr Merriott give examples. What second hand reports? On
Mr Robert Crosbie & Dzyan Esoteric School, ---I've dealt with available
evidence & asked for more solid testimony & evidence. If you or Mr
Richard Taylor or Mr Dallas TenBroeck are really interested in facts,
historical truth-----why haven't one of you set record straight? No,
you question my motivations & Mr. Taylor & Mr TenBroeck remain silent.
& this silence is from Mr Taylor who prides himself in being scholar
ready to ferret out facts however uncomfortable truth may turn out to
Then you wrote----"if you want to use the people in this group to gain
information for your research dissertation, isn't it reasonable for you
to inform the group how you are going to use that information?"
In last year or two, I've repeated several times on this forum what my
interest were & what I was attempting to accomplish. I plan to write
dissertation on Mr Judge. This semester I'm not in school but working
to pay bills, etc. I may also write a book. Certainly a number of
articles to be posted on the WWW. Question my motivations, Mr Merriott,
but this appears nothing but distraction from subject matter. Thank
God, I've had number of theosophists who've freely given information &
documents. One theosophist in London sent me several packages of
material in the last 18 months. Early last year I wrote Mr John Cooper
of Australia & he wrote back sending bundle of documents on case of Mr
Judge & material on Mr Crosbie, ULT & their Esoteric group. Mr Cooper
didn't give me 3rd degree but gave freely & even refused to accept
payment for material & postage. He didn't know me from Adam. This in
sharp contrast with several so called theosophists who've questioned my
motivations, have sent me private email threats etc, suggested they knew
truth but refused to provide one iota of factual material. Latest
example is ULT associate who said he knows about ULT's Esoteric school,
said he could help, but who hasn't answered my reply. IMO these persons
aren't interested in truth, especially if it disturbs their belief
systems or goes against preconceptions of their favorite theosophical
So Mr Merriott---there you have it.
