In your latest posting to me, you write:
"That's it? You ask for my opinion and when I give it you ignore the
ramifications of it completely? My post was a complete thought that
needs to be addressed as a whole or is better not addressed at all."
Bill, I wanted in the original answer to your post to pursue the
heart of the matter with you which is about Olcott's encounters but
you seemed to preclude that by writing:
"Now, Daniel, I have done my best to explain. I do hope that it
suffices. Researching the accounts of various historical events for
evidence that 'adepts' exist is a poor methodology which I am not
inclined to pursue further. I do not need Olcott's testimony or your
charts to validate my belief in extraordinary men and women capable
of extraordinary accomplishments."
Therefore it seemed that little if anything would be gained by trying
to pursue with you your hypothesis #6 which you had offered.
Finally you write:
"Daniel, it is small wonder that few will engage in dialogue with
you. You seek to confront Brigitte at every turn. There is much
each of you could learn from the other. Only an arrogant claim upon
the truth prevents it. Brigitte is the obsessive to your compulsive.
Without either one of you the rest of us would be getting only one
side of the story. Together you balance and ultimately cancel each
other leaving us with our own self-devised methods. Thank you both."
First of all, I think I have been learning things from Brigitte's
Furthermore, Bill, I didn't get the impression in your last two
postings to me that you really wanted to engage in dialogue with me
about the hypotheses concerning Olcott's encounters. So I didn't
But best luck to you in your own "self-devised methods", whatever you
may mean by that. And thank you, too.
