There are some on this list who know a lot more than I do about this subject

I guess that could be a way of looking at it. The trouble is that there are 
so many levels of theosophical ideas that there will be many views on this 
subject. In the way I was referring to it, I see it an invisible entity that 
was created by the strong focus of the group and the intention to do this. It 
did become an entity in its own right.

The power was already there when the group came together and called it up. It 
spoke through a chanel when allowed to do so and acted as an intermediary and 
 enhancer for other chanelled energy. Very interesting it was too.

It may not be the same sort of thing but it seems to me that anything, 
physical or non-physical, can be accentuated by too much attention paid to 
it. It's similar to someone holding a grudge and feeding it by brooding on it 
to the extend of attacking the object of the grudge.

It caused me to see that there was a lot more to life than I had ever 
imagined and it just lost its importance within the vast vistas of life I 
learned about. If it became necessary I would still do it but so far it 
hasn't. I have moved in another direction and haven't the time to put into it

They may know what it is hanging about for.

Yes or accidentally. I vaguely understand that magicians use elementals that 
they build up. That seems part of learning magic but I do not know a lot 
about that so I am only surmising.

They are thought energy that have been 'concretised' in the realms that we 
can't quite see unless we are that way inclined. I also think that there are 
elemental beings who live in the elemental planes e.g fairies, gnomes etc. 
These were probably the ones that helped HPB. There are many interesting 
stories told about these little people.

these were not teaching entities but as mentioned above, members of the 
elemental kingdom who don't really like humans that much but when someone 
like HPB excercises her will over them, they get used to it.
