Chapter Three looks at the theosophical principle of duality of religion and science within the development of theosophical, New Thought, and Christian Science metaphysics. Temple ideas concerning the nature of God, humankind, redemption, the coming of the Avatar or Christos, and the Masters are explored in relationship to the Occult Science that informed the burgeoning interest in electricity that preoccupied the core membership as both metaphor for God and active principle in healing.
