In the PREFACE of "Isis Unveiled", we see:
" It was while most anxious to solve these perplexing problems
that we came into contact with certain men, endowed with such
mysterious powers and such profound knowledge that we may truly
designate them as the sages of the Orient. To their instructions
we lent a ready ear. They showed us that by combining science
with religion, the existence of God and immortality of man's
spirit may be demonstrated like a problem of Euclid. For the
first time we received the assurance that the Oriental philosophy
has room for no other faith than an absolute and immovable faith
in the omnipotence of man's own immortal self. We were taught
that this omnipotence comes from the kinship of man's spirit with
the Universal Soul ? God! "
Looking carefully, I perceive the following affirmations:
(1) "...we came into..."
(2) "...we may truly designate..."
(3) "...we lent a ready ear..."
(4) "...They showed us..."
(5) "...we received the assurance..."
Then, I would like to ask you:
Is HPB part of the personal pronoun "WE"?
And, if this is the case, who are the other or others?
Thank you for all...
