A Second Attempt with Pedro

In your posting at:

you write:

"I am sorry, Daniel. Obviously someone unknown to me is using my name
to lure you into writing a new introductory book on Theosophy. Let me
assure you that it is not me."

Either this is your attempt at engaging in some version of Chuck's 
humor or you have misread my posting or you seem to be doing your 
best to avoid actually commenting of my 2 specific examples.

In my posting at

I wrote:

"But how does one apply these statements in, let
us say, writing a new introduction to Theosophy.

"Let us say that the two of us agreed to write such
an introduction."

I was trying to set up a "hypothetical" situation for purposes of 
discussion in hope that you would try to illustrate in some concrete 
way how the quotes you gave in your posting at:
would be used or applied IF.... FOR and I were writing 
an introductory book to Theosophical teachings.

So I will repeat my previous post below in the hope that you will 
treat the matter in a serious way.

Let us say that [under certain circumstances] the two of us [MIGHT] 
agree to write such an introduction to Theosophy.

[In this hypothetical situation,] I write a draft chapter that reads 
in part:


Our planet Earth forms part of a chain of septenary globes.
But the other six globes are not on the same plane of
objectivity as our physical earth or world. We cannot see these
other globes because they are outside our physical
means of perception.


Another draft chapter contains the following statement:


According to Theosophy, when most people die, there is no conscious
existence for them in the Kamaloka (the psychic realm, the so-called
astral world or plane). Most do not traverse the various planes of
the astral realm in consciousness. For the majority of persons who
die, they are not aware of either the physical world or the astral
world. They remain unconscious until they awaken in their respective
Devachanic states.


IF [in this hypothetical situation] I sent this material to you for 
your input and feedback as the co-author of the book, how would you 
respond to the above material?

No doubt, the English of the statements could be improved, but
would you okay the "content" of the statements?

would you want to change/improve the above sample text? And if so,
in what way?

Would those quotes from your 18829 posting really have any relevance 
in trying to state some of the teachings of Theosophy in this 
hypothetical book?? If so, how?

Pedro, I am really trying to understand your reasoning/thinking for 
bringing those quotes forward....]
