	As I have mentioned before, the term "Webster's description" is totally
meaningless. Anybody can write a dictionary, and quite legally call it

	However, I would define "theosophy" for you as the search for the basic
truth or truths underlying science, religion, and philosophy.

	The others are belief systems. Theosophy is a method for building a
belief system.

	The headquarters of one of the several Theosohpical Societies is in
Pasedena. There are several others, including the original Theosophical
Society, which is headquartered in Adyar, India, and which has American
National Headquarters in Wheaton, IL. Both may be visited.
