All three of the main modern occult traditions (Theosophy, with its
grandchild the New Age movement; the Golden Dawn, with its splinters such
as BOTA and Thelema; and witchcraft/nmeo-paganism, which derived from
both streams) were created by people who had studied far and wide,
drawing together numerous threads from the tapestry of diverse traditions
and weaving them into a new fabric. It would seem strange to me to think
that this activity was appropriate for the founders but not for the
inheritors of these traditions.
