    finding about truth...

    reading about truth, you are able to find out about yourself. Whatever you support madame Blavatsky makes you feel comfortable of what you read. Isis, godness and everything moves in the sphere of unknown, gives you that mystic power to continue, and to win the enemies.<evil, pessimism,etc>.Ending the book of Isis Unveiled provides you the benifid of having a wonderful trip on the land of unknown.
