“How natural that a philosophy which could engender such a caste of didactic incubi, should express through the pen of one of its most garrulous essayists, the following sentiments:
“This is a sad, a very sad age, full of dead and dying faiths; full of idle prayers sent out in vain search for the departing gods. But oh, it is a glorious age, full of the golden light which streams from the ascending sun of science!
What shall we do for those are shipwrecked in faith, bankrupt in intellect, but…who seek comfort in the mirage of spiritualism, the delusions of transcendentalism, or the will o’ the wisp of mesmerism?…””
H. P. Blavatsky
