  Dear Konstantin, 

  Just imagine, for argument's sake, that HPB (and her two Teachers, 
  since The Secret Doctrine was their "triple production") had written 
  the following passage in, let us say, Russian:

  "This "Be-ness" is symbolised in the Secret Doctrine under two 
  aspects. On the one hand, absolute abstract Space, representing bare 
  subjectivity, the one thing which no human mind can either exclude 
  from any conception, or conceive of by itself. On the other, 
  absolute Abstract Motion representing Unconditioned Consciousness. 
  Even our Western thinkers have shown that Consciousness is 
  inconceivable to us apart from change, and motion best symbolises 
  change, its essential characteristic. This latter aspect of the one 
  Reality, is also symbolised by the term "The Great Breath," a symbol 
  sufficiently graphic to need no further elucidation. Thus, then, the 
  first fundamental axiom of the Secret Doctrine is this metaphysical 
  ONE ABSOLUTE—BE-NESS—symbolised by finite intelligence as the 
  theological Trinity." (from the Proem, SD)

  How many people in the world would be able to read it, let alone 
  understand it?
