Appreciate very much hearing about your experience and I think if you 
examine closely what has been said, the reports they (the Roerichs) 
made were not of the sensational kind that you see in many places 
today... I also believe there are many phenomenau taking place that 
have a scientific basis and since most people today live in cities 
they are unaware of natural things like heat lightning, St. Elmo's 
fire and the aurora borealis. There is also the concept though that 
what occurs naturally has a spiritual basis to it. While flying
the Carribean sea I looked down and could observe a rainbow perfectly 
in a circle around the shadow of our plane, while I'm sure this had a 
scientific basis, it was nonetheless comforting to feel that a
aura was around our craft as it crossed the sparkling sea. I suppose 
I'm more of a aesthetically oriented person than scientific but I
that what can be explained scientifically should be appreciated as 
well as the part that is unexplained. I think Guy Murchie wrote some 
fascinating books on the subject and he used scientific explanations 
to broaden and deepen our views.
