It's pretty exciting that explorers in the guise of writers are
coming back with this sort of thing.  Thanks for mentioning Anne
McCaffrey - I haven't read any of her stuff yet.

Re science validating theosophy, I think both are about making
the individual insight or discovery public.  Come to think of it,

liability, making it slow, conflict-ridden, and slow, compared
with what the arrow of individual consciousness can achieve when
it is able.
