RE: Theos-World WHO PLAYED THAT TRICK ON H.P.B.? by Boris de Zirkoff

Hi Frank,

You make some good points in your post to Tony.

If I understand Tony correctly, I think he is suggesting that the
photographs of the planets are simply about the exterior aspect of life, the
exoteric, which can have a way of taking our attention away from the
'inner', the esoteric. Tony seemed to be suggesting this is symbolic of the
alterations that get made to HPB's texts by scholars who change the
spelling, standardise the use of words, capitalisations, italics, even
change words, phrases & so on. That's all well and good from a purely
exoteric point of view but do people take into account what may have been in
HPB's mind from an esoteric and Occult point of view when she wrote what she
wrote? I think this is the general point Tony is making.

I liked your question about "were there ancient astronauts in the past?"
