  I am so glad you have brought up this issue.  I get frustrated when only receive mail about who said what, who did what 100 years ago.  It seems to me that the world is going quite mad at the moment and as theosophists we are still dallying with the founders.  Is this truly what HPB wanted when she gave us the Ancient Teachings?
  We can only assist others if we get HPB's teachings out to the general public.  I am busy on several forums which are curious about what she actually had to say.
  When I see Theos Talk all I can think is about Barbra Streisand, "Talk amongst yourselves"
  I think the time for study is over, it is now time for action.  Now time to walk the walk.

Guess that's the way it has to be. One way or the other, the planet someday 
will have to be cleared of the bulk of its human population that keeps 
increasing in greater and greater numbers to eventually reach a point -- which is 
not too far off -- where the global ecoology can't support them and their 
infrastructures any longer. 

Besides, isn't it necessary to make room for the new cycle of the now 
infiltrating sixth family race -- with a higher level of mental/moral (Buddhi 
nature) development -- so as to continue the human evolution to an even higher 
level before the sixth subrace appears? (Or is it subrace and root race?) I 
have no trouble wrapping my mind around that aspect of theosophical teachings... 
Since the possibility of such round and race evolution it describes, is 
perfectly consistent with the ABC model -- which sees evolution, on all its levels, 
and particularly the physical, much like the "morphic resonance" interaction 
of hyperspace morphogenetic or "morphic" fields, as explained by Rupert 
Sheldrake in his book "A New science of Life."

Both Blavatsky and I (among many others, I suspect) thought this culling 
could be caused by a sudden geographic pole shift, or series of volcanic disasters 
due to intelligent nature reflecting back mankind's accumulated evil 
thoughts. Or, if it occurred as the result of human actions -- we could have 
anticipated a global warming and massive floods, a worldwide pandemic, or a globally 
catastrophic nuclear war. 

Who would have thought it could be the lowly bees that were destined (or 
chosen) to do the work? They gave us our nourishment, and now, they seem to be 
taking away.

It's ironic... But looking at the way mankind's greed and ignorance of their 
true nature have done it to themselves, it seems quite appropriate, don't you 

Isn't the purpose of each of our lives, to learn the lessons that we need to 
know to arrive at self realization and to achieve a "nucleus," then a seed, 
and ultimately a tree -- as a universal brotherhood of all mankind -- so as to 
continue its further evolution toward its ultimate godlike nature -- with each 
of us a consciously aware part of it? Isn't that the ultimate reward for all 
individual points of Mankind's consciousness on this globe who manage to 
survive through the whole lifetime of the manvantara without losing their 
conscience or inner light, and perhaps ending up isolated in the world of dark matter? 
So, what's lost, if much of the current world population is starved out of 
existence? Especially, since they are the one's who caused it. Doesn't 
perfect justice in the form of karma, as you sow, so hall you reap, rule the 
world? And, aren't the lives of our descendents as important as our present 
lives? Especially, if such descendants could be part of the incoming higher 
evolved mankind that we will ultimately be reborn into. Much food for thought 
here, eh... Even for the skeptics -- who can't imagine or think about any 
possibility of consciousness beyond their present material lifetimes. 

BTW, the theosophical origin of the bees and the ants, along with us -- as a 
necessary support of the ecology that, in turn, supports the universal 
consciousness expressed in Man -- might make sense if we assume that HPB was using a 
metaphor, i.e., Moon as a substitute for Mother or primal matter, out of 
whose bosom all life arises and evolves. She also taught that the physical moon 
was simply the shell of the dead Earth left over from a previous 
manifestation or Manvantara -- that was necessary to stay and encircle around so as to 
help maintain the orbit of the earth, and support the circadian rhythms of all 
life, as well as acting as the mirror to reflect the highest spiritual rays of 
the Sun during sleep -- to regenerate the life energy used up during waking 

As I see it, all of that is easily explained, scientifically, by analogy and 
correspondence -- from the standpoint of the ABC field's initial radiation, 
fractal involution and subsequent evolution -- based on the second fundamental 
principle of cyclic (harmonic) laws of electrodynamics... That act in 
conjunction with the (first principle) ineffable zero-point origin of mother SPACE with 
its abstract motion or spinergy, and the (third principle) ultimate purpose 
of evolution, supported by reincarnation and karma.

So, maybe the bees are really our saviors -- both in the beginning and ending 
of our lives on Earth. 

Sounds pretty reasonable to me, and perfectly in accord with the theosophical 

What do you think?

P.S. And that doesn't let me off the hook either... Since back in the early 
seventies, I was entrapreneurially working on starting a worldwide cellphone 
empowered communication network. Was it my good karma to have failed in all 
my previous enterprises leading to that one -- which also never could be 
consummated due to my lack of sufficient personal wealth? Although, there were 
plenty of other such electronic business startups that made it all the way to 
the present morass of bee extermination, and ultimately, a goodly portion of the 
human race... If that really is the cause, and not equally greed-driven, 
worldwide biochemical dispersion, global warming, etc. Either way... Same 
difference. We did it to ourselves. And, by now, I think it's much too late in 
the game to reverse any of it. Somehow, however, it makes me happy to have 
been a technological business failure. </:-)~
