Wonder you (and we) may, but sadly the founders and their successors
were as captivated by the esoterica as most of those who followed them,
with the current paradox that 3rd object ideas seem to "rule" the TS
movement, while at the same time they are denied or decried by others in
charge of parts of it, especially Adyar.

I think I am saying that the founders and their successors were no
better or worse than anyone else, and in consequence, had no chance of
setting in motion the "successful and full fruition" you mention. :-(

This, I guess, *has* to include the putative Masters.
