Dear Jason

I just received the above message. The digest approach may solve the
problem of large number of messages being received. Please forward the
message to anyone interested in the newsgroup.

In this cyberage with fast world wide communication I am confident
that with the newsgroups and IRCs newer modes of exchange of ideas and
discussions and flow of information may speed up the dissemination and
spread of Theo-Sophia in the most free form.

In the context of the current cyber communication world I wonder
how HPB would have used it if she were here now. One of the interesting
phenomenon is that rarely you find any of the leading figures in
Theosophical Organizations participating in the cyberspace. I do not know if
this is due to the fact that they need to be educated in the use of
computers; most of them grew up in pre computer age.

Would it not be wonderful if we all come up with creative ways to
use the cyberspace to spread Theo-sophia especially to the younger
generation who may not be attracted by the traditional approach?
