As I said earlier, the only proof we can have of the
masters' historical existence is testimony from a
qualified witness, and we have that from Olcott. We
do not have it from Brown, Ramaswamier, et al, but
Olcott's testimony is sufficient in my judgement to
establish their corporeal existence as legal persons.
So I agree with Paul that their identities were
disguised, but I cannot agree with anyone that they
were fictions, fantasies, imagined beings, trance
personalities, or any such thing as that unless the
Olcott evidence can be satisfactorily disposed of. I
raised that question some time ago, and no one has
ever addressed it, so for that reason I remain
stubbornly convinced that the mahatmas were real men
as they were claimed to be.
That said, I see no reason to doubt their claim that
they belonged to an organization headquartered in
northern India which has come to be referred to as the
"White Brotherhood" and which had Tibertan connections
