Dear Katinka 

you have understood me.

No one is an "authority." I certainly am not.

What I continually point to is -- FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF.

Such is the case in all matters dealing with the past -- if at all

We can only "point the way." The means to reach the goal vary with the
intent, devotion, motive of the seeker. Then The VOICE OF THE SILENCE
makes this clear.

FIND THE DOCUMENTS. Make up your own mind.

Each student has to do his own research and verification. At best we can
offer information about where we found information that seemed
satisfactory to us. We cannot force any one to accept it. We are all
free. In that freedom alone there is UNITY -- no coercion.

Best wishes,

By your reasoning we can't even take your word for it, because, your 
words aren't the source material themselves. We might as well stop 
talking/writing then. Anyhow, I sent a quote from a source. A longer 
reply can be found at:
