At least some of humanity have chosen not to close their eyes and minds to extraordinary findings. Watch this slideshow: http://projectavalon.net/lang/en/klaus_dona_en.html
Besides the artifacts which our current technology cannot help manufacture, there are skeletons of 2.6 m long, old maps of the world carved into stone, the Peri Reis map showing the continent of Antarctica (some of which is under sea level - how… Continue

How Did Albert Einstein Intuit (Grok) E=mc2?
That's easy... He looked it up in The Secret Doctrine. (1) I did not know he wrote a kind of secret doctirne.Possibly he made notices of his vieuw on the SD they are not ot find on internet
Here's the Background:
On the 20th Anniversary of Einstein's death (1975), physicist Richard Feynman was quoted in Time magazine as saying, "I cannot understand how he arrived at the intuition (2) leading to… Continue

Confusing for the time being the Three Objects of the Society with what Theosophy is, we can more or less sum up today's living theosophical concepts.
First, "To form a nucleus of the universal COMMUNITY ( in today's language, brotherhood excludes 52% of the world's population, and actually repels about 10% of us.) of Humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color." That would be EMBRACE. Embrace the community you… Continue

"If you are like me, you will return to H.P. Blavatsky again and again, even though the labyrinths and quagmires of her style may often curdle your enthusiasm for genius.” --General Theosophy

Now let's have a closer look at the beginning stages of Knoope and Assagioli, for which also see my previous blog postings. Nr. 1 is labeled "wish" with Knoope, to which I have added the labels "desire" and "See" (or beginning of Vision).
I narrow the field a bit and take this "wish" as a deep-felt desire for accomplishing something worthwhile. Simple needs are of a more biological nature and are not dealt with here.
Now what is desire? Everyone of us… Continue

This site now has 500 members and it is a milestone. It is one of the few sites which public can access without joining it.
There is a tendency in traditional theosophical circles, to keep discussions private. Since the major search engines index the contents of sites they can access, I am confident that the membership here will steadily grow as more users in Internet become aware of this site. Congrats to the organizers of the site.

I've created a webpage with additional info and a link direct to
the publisher/bookshop in the Netherlands.

I've often wondered exactly how the Taliban goes about convincing kids to become terrorists and suicide bombers. What must that propaganda look like? What are their arguments? Whatever they're doing, it's working. Filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy went inside a Taliban training camp to find out exactly how their system works. And it IS working. They target children of very poor families (or perhaps those with no families at all) who are long on despair and short on options. The offer of food,… Continue

Will is a most interesting topic to research. Everyone of us has to some degree experience with the act of will and can do experiments in this field.
In this blog posting I'll summarize Assagioli a bit. Extract from an old blog of mine:
The process of active will is very complex. It has been described by
Assagioli in his book "Act of will". I cannot deal with it here at length.
I will mention the steps involved in the will-process,…
