      I'm imagining that the way our teachers nature friend
      interacted with him as the emmesary, which then led to
      the Master, is how the CC Church works its services
      out in a way as well as the readers of First Class.

      It is said that they work to be devoid of personality
      so that something can come in and speak in a certain
      manner when they are in those roles. And it seems that
      our teacher set it up in this manner according to how
      it happened for him. I had never heard that he said
      the other had said a thing without enthusiasm which
      then created a lot in another.

      I think when we speak of Master are we talking about
      Christian Rosenkruez? It would seem we are if the
      letter M is used as a name.
