Sorry, June, if I missed your point and you meant why the Gardeners didn't show a loving side, I think because they too are just an evolving ego-mind, although much longer lived than us if you count in Earth years (but you shouldn't because their Universe doesn't handle time the same way, and probably doesn't handle free will the same way, either!) They did treat him a bit like a circus monkey, but then they had the dilemma that they couldn't explain their actions because he didn't have enough experience to comprehend them - it would have all sailed over his head.Thank you, Melt. I’ve just finished rereading The Hermit, and was planning on sharing the type of things you have, you’ve saved me the trouble and probably done a much better job.
I had to smile at the way the Hermit described things he had no knowledge of that to us is quite common. I also felt that their treatment of him was sometimes less than loving, they didn’t seem to take into consideration that he would naturally be terrified. A bit like humans treat some of the animals they capture perhaps, we don’t think they have any feelings, maybe they thought the Hermit, being a savage, didn’t have any.
While reading I asked several times. Where is Love. the love we talk about on RT. I will be interested if you feel the same, Melt.
Yesterday I received the two I ordered, The Rampa Story and The Third Eye. Having lost my original ones, so look forward to rereading those.
They did have a council of Wise Ones, (who interestingly numbered 9). I'm pretty sure a direct meeting with the Wise Ones would have emanated love, but such a meeting was not to be, they were even further distanced.
