	I have to disagree here.  If theosophists don't understand
"clairvoyants" then who does?  There is no "misunderstanding."  TSs
fear and mistrust clairvoyants owing to CWL's over-use of psychism,
and also to HPB's and Judge's constant warnings against its practice,
but I think they understand it all too well.  Its mistrust based on
an all-too-insightful understanding, not a lack of understanding.
