Re: Theos-World re "ABC Leon," "blinds" as "attempts to explain"...

Mauri, I suppose you may be right, speculatively, or esoterically. However, 
on second thought (and maybe third) perhaps, you could be wrong... That is, 
if I read you correctly through all those exotericized duality's and mayavic 
blinds that you surround the esoteric (if not also mayavically exoteric) 
truths you are apparently/possibly/effectively talking about. But, then who 
am I to say, since I'm part of the dualistic illusion that you allude this 
entire world reality is (which I assume you are, too)... If that makes any 
realistically non dualistic or non mayavic, monistic sense -- or rings a 
bell. Although, I'm afraid only HPB knew how to do that -- both effectively 
and affectively (according to WQJ, as Dallas recently pointed out.) Nothing 
speculative about that, I'm sure.

So, since my thinking machine, or Manas is also a mayavic projection of such 
an all encompassing dualistic reality (or meaningless unreality) -- it beats 
me what you actually mean by what you are saying. Maybe some of the "guys" 
here (if they are not figments of our mayavic/dualistic imaginations) -- or 
other guys on one of the other mayavically exoterical (or perhaps I should 
say, "exoterized") theosophy lists, who seem to understand you, can 
straighten me out. Since, from a non-mayavic, non-dualistic point of view, I 
can only realistically, if not mayavically/dualistically understand things if 
they are kept as simple as ABC -- so long as the duality of my mayavic Manas 
isn't called into question. I'm very sensitive about that -- since my 
dualistic opinions about myself sometimes get tangled up in Maya and I get 
blinded by my own fallibility. Hope you (or that mayavic/apparent version of 
you) understands what I'm talking about. (Looking at it from my higher non 
mayavic/monistic self, I'm not so sure I do. ;-) But, then my higher self 
may be mayavic from your (whatever "you" we are talking about) points of, 
view, and what it/we/I understand(s) might be mere dualistic nonsense -- 
conjecturally, that is (If not speculatively). That should be pretty clear, 
if not fogged up by mayavic/dualistic thinking, that is... I wonder? <\^:]>

Best regards, and Happy New Year -- (or whatever, if that's a Maya), 

P.S. This note played hell with my spell check dictionary. I don't know if it 
will ever recover (mayavically/dualistically speaking, that is... :-)
