A FUNDAMENTAL axiom in Theosophy is that no one should accept as
unquestionably true any statement of fact, principle, or theory which he has
not tested for himself. This does not exclude a reasonable reliance upon
testimony; but only that blind credulity which sometimes passes for faith. As
we understand the rule, it is that we should at all times keep a clear and
distinct boundary between what we know, and what we only accept
provisionally on the testimony of those who have had larger experience until
we reach a point of view from which we can see its truth. We owe it to
ourselves to enlarge the sphere of clear knowledge and to push back as far
as possible the boundary of opinion and hypothesis.
