"I should add that if we want to get deeper into this problem from a theosophical point of view then a lot more and complicated thoughts would need to be involved. Questions about the hierarchical constitution of man, animals, plants, different…"
""you would get a chunk of meat looking like a human being (possibly) in all respects - but it would not be animated or have reasoning or intelligence - maybe it can be used as a spare for using organs from it"
Hari, that is more or less…"
"BTW and regarding the above line of thought: I am still not certain what it really means that any organ can be grown of a stem cell. Would it eventually be possible to grow a complete human out of one stem cell at some time? Then this would change…"
"That is a good question to ponder about a while. This is what I would say:
Stem cells can be used to develop organs. That means they seem to be the vehicles of animal monads, but one sub-plane below that sort of animal monads that can grow a…"

"Part 3 of 4
As a bottom line theosophical learning is a process of transformation and growth on many planes.
Now from theosophical learning we come to theosophical teaching. Theosophical teaching in the essential sense…"
"Part 4 of 4
The answer is, obviously, that in many cases the searcher is provided the information, but he/she is deprived of the according process. It can easily happen that the result is an impressive collection of facts stored in…"
"Don't know about HPB atm but GdP says somewhere that the speed of light should vary with different height zones. Also he frequently says that there can not be any Absolute in the usual sense - which is usually meant for hierarchical systems but…"
"OK, I have ordered the Korten book and will look into it at time. The mails I seem to get daily from this group feel a bit like the ones from pyramid schemes but I hope that is just a preliminary impression. Will get back when gone to the bottom…"
This group will focus on the writings of David Korten and Yes! magazine, devoted to raise awareness of the necessity and possibility of turning from Empire based thinking to Earth community orientation. I would like to see members studying David's works, and the magazine, in order to have structured, meaningful discussions.
