The protagonists of this imbroglio ought to think more like Nolini-da than Derri-da.
The capital period of my intellectual development was when I could see clearly that what the intellect said might be correct and not correct, that what the intellect justified was true and its opposite was also true.... -Sri Aurobindo

Kepler, as always your comments and insights are most welcome and clearly defined. Especially a pleasure when dealing with other matters besides the PH mess, since SCIY only adopted that cause as a side bar to its main mission of addressing contemporary culture in the light of Sri Aurobindo and visa versa.. So lets keep the dialog going
This has become a mess. It's no longer clear at all what I quoted and what I said myself. Reply

Kepler, you know I have enjoyed your balanced comments on SCIY and I do appreciate your trying to point out the other side of the story too.

The reification of spirituality into conventional morality and the rise of teachers who impart the comforting assurance that they possess Knowledge based on such repeated moral buzz-words, is a gradual process, which need not announce itself "by beat of drum" (to adapt one of the Mother's colorful similies from an obverse context). The "significant evidence" has not been lacking for those who have been watching the growth of this phenomenon. Orthodoxy replaces spirituality imperceptibly without contest until it is challenged by a publc act of individual interpretation. No such thing can be allowed of course, when the teachers have closed the gates on any personal approach not authorized by them. Reply
