Archaeology Professors on Pseudoarchaeology in Theosophy

There is no objection to teaching about Theosophy in an Archaeology college class. This will explain why archaeologists and paleontologists, or biologists would even do so, by explaining the views on evolution and human origins in the nineteenth-century Theosophical literature, where it all began.

Earth is the battle-ground of moral no Continue reading Rachel Weisz’s Hypatia in Agora: “I Believe in Philosophy”

The Difficult Jargon of Occultists and the Graeco-Latin Terminology of Scientists

“These sciences are, and have been for ages, hidden from the vulgar, for the very good reason that they would never be appreciated by the selfish educated classes, who would misuse them for their own profit, and thus turn the Divine science into black magic, nor by the uneducated, who would not understand them.

The ‘Scientific Aristocracy’ and the Vanity Of Materialist Philosophers

“Materialistic scientists will be driven out of their position not by spiritual, theosophical, or any other physical or even mental phenomena, but simply by the enormous gaps and chasms that open daily and will still be opening before them (…) until they are finally knocked off their feet by the ninth wave of simple common sense.”— Continue reading The ‘Scientific Aristocracy’ and the Vanity Of Materialist Philosophers

Theosophy As An Equivalent Of Philosophy H.P. Blavatsky saw the theosophical movement as an attempt to initiate a new renaissance, as known with the later general European Renaissance, and not as a literary club, nor of quietists.

Six Points on “Magic”: Theosophy rejects Supernaturalism and Miracle

“The problem of life is man. Magic, or rather Wisdom, is the evolved knowledge of the potencies of man’s interior being; which forces are Divine emanations, as intuition is the perception of their origin, and initiation our induction into that knowledge (…) We begin with instinct: the end is OMNISCIENCE”. (Alexander Wilder, see The Secret Doctrine, Continue reading Six Points on “Magic”: Theosophy rejects Supernaturalism and Miracle
