Dear Leon-Gerald:

Be careful. HPB said on the title page that the SD was a synthesis 
and reiterated that statement in the body of the book and made it 
clear in the way the book was written that it as a synthesis and 
Theosopists violently contend that it is NOT a synthesis. One fellow 
told me he has a hard time with non-Theosophists who point straight 
at the word on the title page and ask him how he can steadfastly 
contend that the book is not a synthesis. A Theosophistr in England 
went so far as to deny that any of the quotes in the book are really 
quotes. That does not fit into his belief system somehow. That 
naughty word on the title page is a hot button issue for 
Theosophiucal Fundamentalists and none of the rest of us have a clue 
as to why. It is interesting how people can aggressively filter out 
plain facts of which they wish to be unawate.
