Grace Francis...yes she was a good friend. We had a long correspondence which 
stopped abrupt somewhere in the 90-ies...and then at the end of the 90-ies she 
worte me her last letter:

Dear Martin,
It's been a long time since I send you a letter, but you were not forgotten.
I have always realized how deeply you care about the real things of life below 
or behind the ordinairy.
My only concern is and has been that you keep yourself grounded in common sense 
and with a sturdy realization that you are responsible for your thoughts as well 
as your actions. We are OneHumanity, and each of us is expected to give the best 
of ourselves to this world.
So let me hope that you will not be too caught up in fantasy, but will find 
strenght and peace of mind and heart in regular employment and in fullfilling 
your part as a human being to keep the world in Balance.
All good wishes to you in every respect, 
Faithfully, Grace F. Knoche

The problem now with her observations is, that she couldn't know I never was a 
normal human being although I have tried to be one for 51 years which resulted 
in me going into mental institutions, never allowed to work, have a life or be 
at peace of mind/heart.
I stood at the door of Theosophy in 1975 to bring what I carry with me from 
beyond and as time passes everyone will understand my so called fantasy is 
nothing more than Truth abused by an injust world.
Fantasy doesn't exists, the power of Avitchi is it realises any fantasy, ask 
Jules Verne, Leonardo da Vinci or anyone who had a spark of genius breaking into 
On the One Humanity part she wrote I would like to share my thoughts with you:
...we are all unique if you follow what I wrote above, this is what I  love 
about differentiation and it carries a message of  learning/teaching. Aquarius 
is about togetherness, sister/brother/ithood  or real Anarchy if you like in 
which we will teach eachother out of our  uniqueness. This is why worldteachers 
and guru's will become more and  more obsolete, since all they said is in fact 
recorded now and digitally  available for a long time ahead.
Yet we should not misunderstand the power of ''evil", since haughtiness  comes 
before falling down and pride should transform into humbleness.  Being humble is 
the way to overcome the coming if not already  policestate, however surrendering 
your connection of self to others must  be avoided at all times, even if it 
means death.
The thing about reincarnation is simple...the persona (mask) does not  
reincarnate, it dies when the body dies. The One Self creates personae  as long 
as It needs to fullfill Its Mission in understanding Its Own  Illusion. There is 
no separation, we are all one and only in  manifestation we are temporary 
separated. The famous "Day with Us"  simply means all Pathos has become Empathos 
and the Universal Love will  return in Itself, destroying all Forms and Names to 
prepare Itself again  for a new manifestation, a new Game of Life, carrying the 
memory of  previous ones...
>From the above you may understand I am a "Destroyer", an Avatar of Synthesis 
with only one goal: prepare the way for another Greater Avatar, Who will use the 
powers I did not use, since I am only observing, a 
scout...and ready to die any moment, since life hasn't given me anything to be 
attached to anyway...hahahaha, Suffering is Bliss when you understand its true 
meaning and thats why the whole world is put upside down in this Illusion

Gerontocracy is ubiquitous in the movement.

The opportunity to encourage "the younger generation" rather than run them off 
has now been lost twice and perhaps three times.  My cohort of young 
theosophists who arrived in the late 70s/early 80s are now grandparents, but 
they're still young upstarts to the octogenarian power structure.  The 60ish are 
still waiting their turns, while the 40yo and 20yo generations are not there in 
any numbers. 

I had great admiration and affection for Grace Knoche, who did more than anyone 
to encourage my writing and research back in the 1980s.  But the Pasadena TS now 
seems to be in a state of collapse, Sunrise magazine being shut down the year 
after Grace died.  The "leader for life" tradition in that organization meant 
leader to age 96, surely not a good thing for the health of the society.  While 
Radha is "president for life" de facto rather than de jure, the specter of 
someone clinging to power into her 90s certainly seems to haunt the Adyar TS as 
well.  I just learned that Theosophy magazine is no more, and wonder if 
gerontocracy might be an even bigger issue in ULT than in the Adyar or Pasadena 
TSes. There does seem to be a loss of vitality in that group from what I can see 

One of the many factors that make me feel more comfortable in the Church of 
Light than I ever was in the TSes is that the leadership is of my own 
generation, open to new ideas, without any apparent sense of entitlement.  It's 
a far more encouraging environment for anyone wanting to pursue historical 
research into TS origins!  But unfortunately the organizations with the most 
archival resources at their disposal are the least interested in such research.
