Dear Bill:

I offer you my opinion: Yes, I am disgusted.

As I understand it this group was established to discuss
Theosophy, and not the character of people associated with it.
And certainly not to have character association served up daily.
This is undignified.

People who write history and expect respect, of the kind that
gives stature to a writer for perhaps the next 100 years, do not
reopen exploded slanders settled and disposed of a 100 years ago,
unless some overlooked novelty has emerged. I am annoyed, and
frankly, disgusted by the jejune and baseless beating of "dead

In cases where I find no "level field" is provided, I protest in
the name of fairness to all. Both sides of any issue need
exposure to provide balance, and fairness. That is appreciated,
recognized, and provides dignity and stature.

If any one wants to ascertain if there is validity in THEOSOPHY,
let them study it as a philosophy, as an hypothesis concerning
the formation of the Universe and our world, on the nature of man
as an intelligence, on universal purposiveness, and the reason
for our being here, and then, report on their findings, or raise

For instance, here are some subjects being currently discussed
and which others, and I, have been seeking answers for:

Is there actual immortality? Is it possible this is in
"invisible Nature and invisible Man ?"
Do Law and Laws rule the Universe?
Is there any Goal for evolution?
What is the power of thought? How is it developed? Where does
it lead?
Is a single life adequate to learn all that can be known about
our environment, ourselves and our potential future?
Who (or what) runs the world and our Universe? Are we privileged
to inquire into that ?
What are the limits of Space?
What are the ultimate divisions of Time?
Is eternity a fact or just a "very long time?"
How is Consciousness to be defined?
Is Universal Brotherhood a fact in nature or only a wispy dream?
Why study other religions and sciences?
Where is the research of human endeavor recorded?
Who keeps those records?

That will be of interest to most of us, I believe.

Best wishes,

4. Does the idea of reincarnation change how we look at those
around us?


DTB on bn-basic:
Yes, because we realize we are all brother and sister
SPIRITUAL MONADS and have been and will be reincarnating
together. So we might as well treat each other from here on as
members of an immortal family.


DTB on theos-talk:
> I have not been reading fully the posts by Brigitte or Paul
> Johnson -- they disgust me.

I must ask what exactly disgusts you -- the posts that you don't
read fully
or Brigitte and Paul Johnson? I am interested in this feeling of
disgust to
which you refer. I have felt it before myself. I could not
identify the
source of such a feeling. Do you feel it at the spiritual level
or just
superficially by the personality? If it is deep and abiding
within the
spirit, what does it mean to say "they disgust me"? For instance
if we are
all destined to reincarnate again together, will "they disgust
me" again and
again until they change their stripes or I change mine?

I wonder was HPB ever disgusted?
