IN May, 1895, Mr. Judge announced that the Theosophical Forum, (a small monthly pamphlet containing questions and answers on Theosophy) “enters upon a new life and era.” Henceforth, he said, “it will be issued from the office of the President and under his direction.” In other words, Mr. Judge, then the president of the Theosophical Society in America, took total responsibility for the Forum. He also said there would be changes:

Editorial treatment of topics by W.Q.J., C.F.W., and others who hold similar views, will also vary from the past; and as to this it can now be observed that if the treatment of several subjects shall seem inconsistent with what was said in the old series, the inconsistency will be due to a present more definite and rigorous application of theosophical theories to the questions in hand rather than the mechanical and narrow view formerly obtaining.

This is the primary reason why Forum Answers, published by the Theosophy Company in 1982, consists only of the answers made by Mr. Judge to questions sent to the Theosophical Forum from 1889 to February, 1896.

At the end of the first issue of the “new” Forum, Mr. Judge inaugurated a section titled “Subjects for Discussion;’ consisting of condensed paragraphs on various subjects considered useful for discussion and study by individuals and Branches of the Society. In view of Mr. Judge’s statement that the Forum was under his direction, it may be assumed that he either wrote or approved of these items. Present-day students of Theosophy will find them of value.

They are reprinted here as they were presented in the Forum, from May
1895 through March 1896.

In every issue, the following statement preceded the topics for discussion: “In articles and addresses never use Sanskrit or foreign terms without also giving the English meaning; use English terms preferably:’



”Världssjälen.” Det fysiska livets virvelström. Akasha eller den förfinade substansens lägsta differentiering. Sfären för ockulta strömmar och odisk kraft. Två aspekter, den andliga och den materiella. Medier ser bakvänt och från nedan. De initierade ser från ovan i astralljuset. Astralljuset är boningen för elementaler, naturandar, och mänskliga elementarer. Aktivt tillhåll för svarta magiker. Svaga personer faller in i denna sfär omedvetet under sömnen. Eteriska vågor och livsströmmar i astralljuset. Lotusblommans filosofi; roten i jorden (den fysiska världen), stjälken i vattnet (astralljuset), blomman i luften (den andliga världen). [sid 7]
