Dallas, people cannot discover things together unless they agree to 
accept the same principles of epistemology. I have stated that the 
only proof of the existence of anything, phenomenal or noumenal, 
material or transcendental, is direct experience of the same. Either 
we have such an experience ourselves, in which case the issue is not 
a matter of faith but of certainty, or we accept the possibility on 
faith, based on the reported experiences of others whom we find 
credible, for one reason or another.

You, on the other hand, seem to accept only possibilities which fall 
within the scope of Theosophical metaphysics and psychology. That is 
certainly your privilege, and again, if it works for you, I wouldn't 
want to disturb you. But in that case there is no question of 
fruitful discussion; we're speaking different languages on the most 
fundamental level.

Still, as a fellow seeker, I thank you for this stimulating exchange, 
and I wish you all the best. Hare Krishna, as we say in the "trade."
