ONE REASON FOR OUR EXISTENCE
 The British Ambassador, Sir AucklandGeddes, recently said:"The next fifty years are going to be themost glorious or the most disastrous in thehistory of the world. The present genera-tion .cannot hope to see a successful end tothe world revolution now in progress. Theway out of world turmoil must be led bythose who keep in view three essentials,
Beauty, Service
and
Truth.
Keeping thesethree in view, civilization will sail safely. Letone be occulted and civilization is in danger.Let two be occulted and peril is nigh. Letthree be occulted and civilization fails. ThusX^Babylon fell, thus Egypt, thus Rome and>oubt not, fell all the civilizations of the past.>^day civiliz^akyr potters.Many of our readers have heard in ouFlectures that the Rosicrucian teachings are pre-pared around and upon a basis that is as de-void of theories or hypotheses as is possible;and our high degree thembers know that ithas been our greatest ambition to make fewer —, positive statements and have these based uponknowledge than to give a great many state-ments and admit afterwards that they wereguesses or presumptions. We have called your attention to the fact that science, today, yesterday, like unto last century, is filled withtheories, and that it changes these theories,modifies them ~ or makes them obsolete onshort notice. We have stated also that someof science’s fundamental propositions relatingto the most important things in our lives andpurporting to explain the most vital and in-teresting conditions of our existence, and theexistence of our universe and the operationof nature’s laws,
are theories and not to be
 
considered as laws, or facts.
We have beencriticized for making this statement and somehave smiled and said that we could not provev this statement. But, now let us call your at-tention to what we read in one of the univers-ally recognized authorities of scientific mat-ters, put upon the market within the past two years and being used by researchers andscientific persons as indisputable authority.
In
true Rosicrucian spirit we will not mention
the
name of the publication nor the authormaking the following statements. We arequoting from an explanation of the nature andcause of "Tidesand being interested in whatrelation man had to the tides we were sur-prised to read the following statements. Aftermaking an explicit statement of how both theSun and the Moon lull the waters of the earthand do so in inharmonious periods and rela-tionship, and after going into very minutefacts of heights, depths, and all the technicali.ties that would puzzle the average investiga-tor, we come to* this very beautiful expressionof the scientific mind:The foregoing explanation is called theequilibrium theory of ihe\^ides. It is veryplausible, but unfortunatelyfails to agreewith the observed facts, thoiigh it1®^>£vertheless of great ‘use in leading up to a >theory. *
*
Unfortunately, this theoryis not in accord with observation. Ther€f areplaces where the high water comes as muchas six hours away from the meridian passageof the moon. In other words, this equilibriumtheory is at times
in error by the maximum
 
possible amount.
 The trouble is that it tellsus what would happen if the forces
gover y^ 
 
ing the tides had plenty of time to act.”
 / 
Now we ask our members to stopthink and mentally say tdrTjiemselves wha*.they would say to us in letters and otherwiseif any one of our lectures closed one of itsscientific explanations with any such apologyas this. And what would science 8c*y'oftss— as mystics if we admitted that one of our ex-planations contained in it an error of themaximum possible amount? After all, is itscientific knowledge we want or merely thatsimple, beautiful, unpainted, unmeasurable,uncenotaphed thing called Troth.

For instance:We have a copy of the book among our relicsof Rosicrucian pretentions, and nowhere onthe title page or elsewhere in the book can befound the statement that it was written orauthorized by “The Imperator of the AmericanBranch of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood.” Infact, the author’s name is veiled behind acoined, symbolic name and all the early ad-vertising of the book gave this same odd .nameas the name of the author.

Pleasewrite direct to him for his terms and requisitedata. Address: Mr. Howard Breeding, 1255Market Street, San Francisco, California.We would suggest that if you have neverhad a true and conscientious astrological de-lineation of your life or character made, that you have one made. It opens a new vistaand teaches many wonderful principles which your bias or prejudice toward astrology mayhave kept from your understanding. Toknow one’s natural though undeveloped orhalfdeveloped abilities, to have suggestedone’s greatest talents and fortitudes as well asone’8 weaknesses, is unquestionably a greathelp, making for success and more rapid prog-ress in this period of evolution. To knowalso when and how the greatest success mayattend one’s endeavors through cooperationwith natural or planetary laws is even moreimportant. Parents should not overlook thevalue of such a character delineation of theirchildren as a guide for the present and future. The Grand Lodge of Florida is planning tohave its own Temple and the scheme includesan attractive reading room as well as an officefor the Grand Secretary. The Supreme Grand Master is arranging tomove his office and home to San Francisco soas to be in closer contact with the work andwith the greatly increased activities of theorder due to the unusual stimulus that hascome to it during the past six months. Wewill hail with great delight the close compan-ionship and help of our beloved Brother. The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts has re-cently changed some, of the features of its Temple and have added an additional officeto their suite of rooms for the convenience of their members.
