This is an extremely fascinating puzzle! To the best of my knowledge
I don't recall ever having heard of "Samuel Aun Weor" and it might be
helpful to all of us if you feel able to cite the original source of
your above quote. As far as Gurdjieff is concerned, so far I've been
unable to find any real validity for the many claims I've encountered
here and there regarding this individuality but I certainly don't know
everything. As you no doubt know, one of the Archangels is named
Samuel but the quote doesn't seem to indicate this is the same Samuel
the writer indicated?
Hopefully more knowledgeable souls than I shall have an answer to
this puzzle - you have piqued my curiousity!
