"I knew him (Osho) as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, and I still love him and his teachings. Also another Enigma lover! How wonderful! Welcome, Friend to the world of H. P. Blavatsky and Theosophy! Andrew"

Andrew W. Smith replied to Ferran Sanz Orriols's discussion What about Helena Roerich?
"The Roerichs were formidable people in the world of philosophy, and I might say, Theosophy. Looking them up on WikiPedia was richly rewarding. I included a picture of their statue in Moscow for the info of readers. I'll have to study…"

Andrew W. Smith replied to Nicholas Weeks's discussion The Secret Doctrine Commentaries
"If that is truly Nicholas's feeling, then I will admit that I join his point of view pretty much. But, I have never rejected anything of a Theosophical nature, in any case. Also, I dislike ad hominem remarks."

"I learned from Marxist Literary Criticism that "there is always an agenda behind the agenda." Caveat emptor, I guess!"

Andrew W. Smith replied to Nicholas Weeks's discussion The Secret Doctrine Commentaries
"I am skeptical about "popularizing" Theosophy and "The Secret Doctrine." It seems, from looking at several You-Tube sites, as well as comments on Amazon, that people are finding more and more ways to malign the secret doctrines…"

I had a dream . . .

Once I had a dream, a real dream, and not just an idea.  I dreamed that I was standing in front of  huge stacks of black books laying about the floor behind me, and I was handing them out to many people who visited the place where I was (a store?  but I was not selling them . . . ).  They were all the same book, "The Secret Doctrine" by H. P. Blavatsky.  But they were bible-sized, black books bound in leather, and were "The Secret Doctrine" printed on bible-paper along with red rubrics and…See More

Andrew W. Smith replied to Bart Lidofsky's discussion Dangerous Question: A machine in our own image
"Terse question! But, I do feel that HPB and other Theosophists have covered the subject of death-and-after pretty well! I'm not sure a "monad" (in the Leibniz sense of things, or even in Theosophy) "chooses" anything. Karma…"

Andrew W. Smith replied to Bart Lidofsky's discussion Dangerous Question: A machine in our own image
"Tangential to this topic (AI), if someone dies on, for instance, Mars, they still leave a body, so to speak, and go into other dimensions of life (according to Judge). What would an AI leave besides a body?"

A very sad story from my youth . . .

Posted on March 31, 2009 at 3:55pm 3 Comments

I have a very sad tale about my youth. There used to be a very ancient man who stood in the entrance of the local Drug Store in our, very Christian, small town, who kept complaining to all and everyone that, "Did your stomach ever just burn?" My Mother thought he was just hilarious, until she told me about it.
