Although now a vegetarian, I made my own contacts with "higher
intelligences" such as might be thought of by some as "Masters" when
still carnivorous.  So, the quote, IMO, is evidence of some kind of
excuse or duplicity - maybe to put Sinnet off?

"Direct evidence" of such intelligences is of course impossible to
provide if the contact is supposed to be "astral" (which heaven forbid)
as any such contact would be almost by definition subjective.
