Rich reminds me of myself some 20 years ago in his theosophical
zeal. Back then, I wrote to Grace Knoche something to the effect
that I thought theosophy was the sole exponent of truth, and she
chastised me to the effect that theosophy was but one of many
paths. This, coming from the Leader of the Pasadena TS, made
me stop and think. I am sure that Rich will come to see this too
some day.

When Eldon says that Chaos theory is pure mathematics, he is
speaking of it only from the viewpoint of the chaos scientist. In point
of fact, the findings from chaos theory are spilling over into all
disciplines, even those in softer sciences like psychology, biology,
and management. My Ph.D. is on the interdisciplinary study of
Jungian psychology in light of the findings of chaos theory. It is
a fascinating field, and many of the ideas (no, not the math, which
is only one language that chaos theory uses) are deeply related
to theosophy and occultism (the close relationship between chaos
and order - that one comes from the other - is only one example).
