Q: How many Theosophists does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: None. By the time they finish discussing whether the lightbulb needs changing, the proper method in which to change the lightbulb, how it might have been done historically, and how everybody else changes lightbulbs, it's already daylight.
B: None. It was the karma of the bulb to burn out. In time it will replace itself, perhaps with a higher but never with a lower wattage bulb.
C. If we consider that was during a meeting of Ledbeaterians and Blavatskyans they would remain in darkness once they would never agree about the proper way to change the light bulb. The discussion becomes so animated that a flying chair breaks the fixture along with the lightbulb.
D. None. If they are krishnamurtians, they would say: Light is a bulbless land!
One theosophist suggested:
We must make a comparative study of lightbulb, only after we can sdecide what to do.
Comparative Studies on the Lightbulb:
No men will change the light bulb.
We may not change the light bulb, but you can't live without us...
The light bulb burns out Take a hostage.
Why always the light bulb burns out just before to close the deal?
Knock, knock. Here, we insist to change your light bulb.
The light bulb burns out! (Amen!) You are burning too often, and you'll be punished for it.
Seventh Day Adventism:
No light bulb shall burn out on Saturday.
I can't believe this light bulb burned out!
This modern light bulb is worthless.
The light bulb burns out because you don't work.
This light bulb have burned out before
Did you listen to the sound of the light bulb burning out?
We are the Light Bulbs
The light bulb is not really burned out.
There's nothing like a good light bulb burning out!
Theosophists still not satisfied with the result, and undecided about how is the proper way to change the light bulb, begin arguing. An observer raises and says:
Why are you theosophists arguing over the light bulb?
Silence invades the dark lecture hall; and an old and wise theosophist lits a candle, stands up and says:
My friend the question you raised is of great importance. As there was arguing between theosophists before, I will reply your questions with some quotes, which I am sure, will give you enough food for thought:
Richard M. Nixon once said:
The theosophists do not argue. I repeat, the theosophists do not argue.
Martin Luther King, Jr.:
I envision a world where all theosophists will be free to argue without having their motives called into question.
Because they are exercising their natural freedom rights.
Theosophists, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically dispositioned to argue.
That is only for God to know.
The theosophist, as autonomous being, has chosen to argue over the lightbulb.
In my day, we didn't ask why theosophists argue. Someone told us that the theosophists argue, and that was good enough for us.
For the greater good.
It was a historical inevitability.
If you ask this question, you deny the argue in your ownself.
The news of argue between theosophists has been greatly exaggerated.
Pyrrho the Skeptic:
You tell me.
And God came down from the heavens, and He said to the theosophists, "Thou shalt argue with other theosophists." And theosophists argued with each other, and there was much rejoicing.
Listen to the sound of theosophists arguing.
Jehovah witness at the door of theosophists:
Knock, Knock, Knock… Hi we are here to argue with you.
Lets smoke while theosophists are arguing.
The Theosophists argue, Rama Rama, Ding Ding.(Repeat until you begin arguing also).
The meeting was over and all theosophists left the lecture hall, without to change the lightbulb.
