Dear Mr. Caldwell,
You are assuming the credibility of HPB, Olcott and their inner
circle of confidential associates. When I had any doubt about them,
their character, motives, means and goals, I gave them the benefit of
it. However, after studying them and the genesis and early years of
their Theosophical Society, all doubt was removed, and I concluded
that they were all involved in at best a delusion, with pervasive
elements of deception, and at worst, a complete and out-right fraud.
They deceived each other, their followers, and the public in general
as a regular course of action. Such deception, even when engaged in
for what they clearly believed in as a noble cause, is pathological.
Like many other 'occult' and Masonic conspiracies before and since
(Joseph Smith and his Masonic Lodge inventing and testifying to the
the Book of Mormon, etc), I see HPB and her friends as occultists who
were carrying on the Masonic etc. tradition of conspiring to create a
religion. Thus studying her / their esoteric writings should not be
approached as if these were somehow sui generis from Ascended or
