Does it really matter?

Good Morning All,
I was just sitting here pondering about the historical names in Theosophy and came to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter who said what to who and when. Is not Theosophy about seeking the truth? Are not all truths universal? And that being the case, it doesn't matter who said what because nobody owns a "thought" or "a statement" or for that matter anything. Everything that has ever been said, written etc in the entire history of everything was always going to be said/ written etc. Everything that will be said in the future was always going to said. HPB might as well be PBH or PHB or, for that matter, /#&. The point is what has been said has been said and we should ponder on this and search for the validity of what was said, we should not be searching for the validity of the person who said it. As far as I am concerned an absolute dreg of humanity could have written SD and it wouldn't matter: it is the message that is more important.
Now that is not to say that researching historical figures is futile. What I am saying is that this exercise is more therapeutic and is valid in the fact that it puts at ease one's own mind, rather than settling anything of importance.
