Hi Brigitte and all of you,
Brigitte: I don't so much need biographical physical socalled 'evidence' orthe like.
I try reading the Akasha - or try using "the 7 keys" (the alchemical "language of the birds", although the alchemists of the past - mostly weren't highly skilled here according to Blavatsky) of Blavatsky. I am doing my best.
I am not claiming anything.
I am stating my views.(Read my last email to see that !)
But you, Brigitte, on the contrary seem to claim - a whole lot.
No I don't - read - every book or article in the world. But maybe I 'read' (so to speak) something else. And I am not claiming to know everything.
But I can also think - and reach conclusions.
Wisdom is not intersting to some people.

Randolph is certainly interesting. Do you have anything on his teachers.
Were they all french ? Who were they ? Hargrave Jennings ?
