But, if we are in the 4th Round (kama) and 5th Root Race
(manas), then it would seem like kama-manas approaches are in order
for the 20th and 21st centuries. Whats your alternative? Intuition?
We all know how flakey the intuition is. The "still small voice" within
is almost always right, if we hear it. But when it conflicts with logic and
reason, we generally dismiss it (and get into trouble).

Are you suggesting a new technique of some kind, possible with
buddhi-manas intent? Will the 21st century be ready for buddhi-manas ventures?

Good luck. My own "hot prospect" is now (finally) in the works too.
May the better hot prospect prevail.
