Brigitte, HPB's book are, as all true holy books, just a mirror. You cannot
view other things in them as you put before them.
The fact that you until now haven't find anything of higher knowledge in
that serves as a proof to you about the claim that the Wisdom-Religion is
original system and the mother of all religions and sciences does not proof
that it there is actually nothing of it in them. You can only proof that YOU

My position is that Western science and scienticism (bear Pietschmann and
Carl F. von Weizsäcker in mind) is a travesty form of Theosophy.

Please think this over.
