BACK in the day, faraway and long, long ago, when occult science was the mainstream science, the scientific method ruled. It meant checking, testing and verifying every new finding.
But modern science today looks more like a dogmatic religion than honest science, a science which should go wherever the evidence leads, no matter what. Concerned about tenure, she usually doesn’t.
And comparing the two sciences, the occult and modern materialistic, we also must acknowledge that the instruments used in their research are very different.
The teachings of The Secret Doctrine H. P. Blavatsky calls “the accumulated Wisdom of the Ages.” Such teachings are sui generis, yet they were gathered in keeping with strict scientific methodology.
Illustrating this, she notes in SD Volume 1:272, that accumulating such data “occupied countless generations of initiated seers and prophets to marshal, to set down and explain.” Adding: “The flashing gaze of those seers penetrated into the very kernel of matter, and recorded the soul of things there.”
But, “modern science believes not in the soul of things,” Blavatsky wrote, thus modern researchers will not add the subject of the soul to their research because they do not even accept the possibility there is one.
Ancient occult scientists on the other hand, determined to know. And their elaborate system is “no fancy of one or several isolated individuals,” says Blavatsky: “It is the uninterrupted record covering thousands of generations of Seers whose respective experiences were made to test and to verify the teachings of higher and exalted beings, who watched over the childhood of Humanity.”
