I'm sorry, but from this long (and very well-written, thank you) 
explanation, it appears to me that Theosophy, far from reconciling 
differences widely and comprehensively, achieves synthesis via mere 
reductionism, not different in principle, though certainly very 
different in details, from mechanistic science. A real synthesis 
would include, and not dismiss as merely sectarian and traditional 
(though much of it certainly is), the vast storehouse of theistic 
experience to which I have already alluded. Dallas, the view of the 
universe you have described is beautiful, but so is quantum physics, 
and neither of these systems constitutes an all-embracing view of 
life. But if it works for you, I'm the last person who would try to 
pry you away from it.
