School of Ancient and Arcane Wisdom
“The Masters and Saints working on the Right Hand Path began to collect the precious records and documents from the libraries of Lemuria. Each Master was chosen by the Council of the Great White Hierarchy to go to a different section of the world, where, in safety, he could set up a School of the Ancient and Arcane Wisdom. This was to preserve the scientific and spiritual knowledge of the past. At first, for many thousands of years, these schools were to remain a mystery to the inhabitants of the world; their teachings and meetings were to be secret. Hence, they are called even today Mystery Schools or the Shan-Gri-Las of Earth.”
—Secrets of the Andes, George Hunt-Williamson
Times have changed, but people really haven’t. The idea of education1 is the activation of the intellect and the intuition to help one figure the Universe out, but despite all the education and resources available, there are still those who would prefer to destroy what they do not understand, rather than attempt to comprehend it. As mentioned in the quotation, the prior method to preserve and distribute knowledge was through secret schools, where members were recruited by word-of-mouth. In the Information Age, the situation is quite different. We no longer have the local boundaries imposed by lack of communication. The entire planet is available at the press of a button, and the best way to preserve information is to distribute it. Distribution includes written, electronic, and word-of-mouth through formal education and informal chats.
