I agree with the last bit, at least: the white brotherhood
must of course be involved with the whole of humanity. So
their relation with the TS had a goal which may very well
be over. I think them being human means they are probably
in correspondance with people. And the amount of spiritual
teachers in the world today suggests it would be pretty
safe for them to claim to be such, without getting into all
kinds of trouble, so they are probably in correspondance
with people, also about spiritual subjects.

As to the white brotherhood itself. All spiritual leaders
having the same goal, and being telepatically-gifted,
probably means they work together in some form or other,
whether meeting on the physical plane or not.
