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
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."
