"Depressing" is an understatement - someone sent me a xerox if this
article (I am in UK).  As a result of reading it I ask the general

If "... the Masters can and will use us in their work" then:

Who is using the Masters for *their* work, and by what authority do any
kind of Masters operate in the first place?

Seems to me that the answer(s) to such questions are kind of crucial ...

I am not at all sure that I want "many more vibrant outposts of the
Masters' consciousness" until I have more information about these
people.  Anyone want to be a vibrant outpost of *my* consciousness?

I hope not!
