I'll still get back to you on the Theosophical Society, but this should be a hint. ;-)

Thanks for the link to your Occam blog (I liked it that you spelled him the way we do here In Munich) - as a scientist I am, of course, fully aware of the implications. Looking forward to the Theosophical Society discussion! (Hope you appreciate that I I didn't require that you read through Blavatsky's thousands of pages of Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine; i myself only read parts of it due to lack of time. I'lll stay on the purely scientific side, i.e. leave purely mythological traditions aside a s much as possible).

I only read a sampling of these two books plus letters to Sinnet, mostly what is in Sylvia Cranston's biography of Blavatsky, and Peter Washington's Blavatsky's Baboon, which isn't as scientific as he tries to imply.

I also read about Mormons which has a lot in common; and even if skeptics are right about there not being any advanced intelligence, people believe in it and allow this belief to control their actions.

The Occam spelling is the more common one that I've seen even though some don't consider it correct.

The article is getting longer but I'll finish it in a few days and post it til then Good day

Ancient Aliens Meme | Helena Blavatsky's writings might be too much for her to come up with on her own, even if some of it is obviously false! Therefore Aliens! | image tagged in memes,ancient aliens | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I've read more on this since speaking before, but it's still only a fraction of the material the members including Blavatsky came up with. As you might have guessed if her Masters exist at all I don't believe they can be considered trustworthy communicating in deceptive ways; however evidence indicates something happened, getting to eventually .... well ... may be "Therefore Aliens?"

Blavatsky was in Tibet an got to know Mahayana Buddhism there. How mich do you know about Buddhims? Buddhism plays an important role in this thing!

Not so much, except that it's mostly supposed to be peaceful and Buddha, who went by a different name allegedly had an epiphany or revelation after sitting under a tree.

If we're considering alleged revelations there are many more including Ashoka that turned peaceful after seeing the horrors of war in wars that he started to create his empire, and then wrote his peaceful laws in stone on columns, but I don't recall him being mentioned by Blavatsky, although she does hint that there are many more.

This is some of what that long article focuses on, the idea that an unknown advanced intelligence might be having an impact on development of society for an undisclosed motive.

Ashoka was a Buddhist. The critical question is: do you believe n reincarnation, i.e. that after death we go into another realm, but (at least can) return into this realm (D3, earth), and even sometimes remember who we were in previous lives?? This question is very serious (and keep in mind that i am a scientist).

After Ashoka had his revelation he converted to Buddhism.

As for reincarnation, that would have to start by determining whether or not there is such a thing as a soul, which I consider inconclusive at best. Also it's not a matter of belief, from a scientific point of view, it's a matter of whether or not there's evidence to determine whether or not it's real.

If it is a matter of belief, and someone can control beliefs of others they can partially control decisions based on those beliefs, accurate or not, which is a fundamental of cult indoctrination.

Ok, I just used the usual term "believe", to see what you answer. Perhpas ypou know that there is a lot of emprical evidence for it (and present day's theoretical phyics is a joke; if you need hints to literature, please let me know). So what is "soul"? Just an ad-hoc attempt to define it: the memory storage of all our lifetimes. If you wish to discuss further, please let me know. Otherwise I say good bye, hope you liked our littel discussion, and wish you a life full of insight.

Don't know what a soul is, your guess is as good as mine but if these alleged revelations are created by an unknown advanced intelligence they might be controlling the message and it could be creating the appearance of evidence to support the belief in reincarnation.

Looking at my comment again: oh, these typos: not "petty", it should have been "pretty", and also, of course, "memory". Your upvote seems to indicate that my arguments were not completely senseless - or maybe you just had enough of the discussion. Either way: thank you, it was interesting.

Not really. Memories are all stored together with feelings, there is petty good evidence in science that this is true. The human body is the most advanced "feeling machine" in the universe (that's because of the organic chemistry). These feelings cannot be "faked" by some AI or so, because there are not enough energy levels available. So if a memort<y is combined with a typical human feeling, you can be pretty sure that it is of human origin and not of some "fake" origin that projects it in our mind. The only thing that could be true is that certain storages of memories coupled with feeling are accessible to more than one human being (kind of a ROM accesible to several computers). Then one would have to analyse whose it really is .

Reasonable conclusion, although I don't necessarily agree with all of it; except for the assumption that I'm the one that up voted you. I pretty much assumed that someone from the NSA or CIA was following me around and upvoting things for some bizarre sense of humor.
