Example text

If a child is born among people who are awake, he will be awake. But there is no possibility to verify this. M R S. W. A child often shows a certain alertness, at a certain age. M R . O. If a child is put among people who are awake, he would not fall asleep. But at which age in these conditions he is more awake, it is impossible to say. Generally at the age of seven or eight there appears in him imaginary personality or imaginary 'I'. M R . R . You say that man in the street has no aim. But when you get older you don't fly about so much, you become interested in one thing.

One has to struggle with lying. Now you must try to speak the truth, not to lie. You have mil permission to speak, on condition that you tell your impressions here. At the same time you will in this way prepare people who may come — or not. People are mostly very impatient, they make their conclusions and decisions after too short a time. M R. R. May one use this system to understand other systems? For instance, Upanishads? M R . O. Not yet. You must know more. Particularly this refers to older systems, that do not belong to our time.

We take ourselves as section. In the same way each planet has an orbit. We don't take the orbit. Dimensions are not always the same, they pass into one another. MISS T . Does a cosmos die? Then what renews it? M R . O. Why this presupposed idea of renewing? In one phrase we cannot speak about renewal before we see that it is limited. We speak only about one life of each cosmos. We must try to be exact. In our state we have no possibility to know more than about one life. We must try to use only such words that can be verified by analogy.
