The way I like to put it is that the primary literature (Blavatsky, The
Mahatma Letters, etc.) should be considered the starting point, not the
ending point. One thing I hope to accomplish in the
firstname.lastname@example.org discussion group (plug! plug!) is to help the
spread of new ideas, and help bring Theosophy into the 21st century
(although getting it into the latter half of the 20th century would be a
useful goal in the meantime...).
