Dear Friend: "Dead letter" is always opinionated. Yet we can express our understanding of a fact or truth in no other way. Our exchange of views if tolerated and used with each other ought to lead us to a deeper understanding of truth. And conversely, if we are attentive, lead us to grasp what aspect of our own capacity to understand is limited as compared to that of others. In other words we can all profit from each other, and yet, we will always make our own independent decisions thereafter. We have to extend ourselves to include (not to exclude) others' views. That is brotherhood in action. Best wishes, Dallas ====================== -----Original Message----- From: Morten Nymann Olesen [mailto:global-theosophy@adslhome.dk] Sent: Thursday, November 14, 2002 8:12 AM To: theos-talk@yahoogroups.com Subject: Re: Theos-World RE: [bn-study] Cycles and Evolution L K Hi Dallas and all of you, I will have to suggest, that the issue of avoiding "dead-letter" reading and living would be given more importance, when one just throws - numbers on cycles out to the more or less public eyes.
