Does Paul Johnson exist?
- Does Paul Johnson exist, or is he simultaneously two people on opposite
sides of the planet, or does he have a split personality ... or does he
have an additional persona known as Brian (or two: Brian and Brigitte) or
is Paul an additional persona of Brian or Brigitte or both of them (or of
Brigid or Brion or Bran or Brigita)... or are all three pseudonyms used
by a fourth person .... or is the fourth person a fictional personality
created by the other three who has now taken on a life of its own ....
the possibilities are endless. Of the existence of Paul Johnson, I have
no doubt, always assuming that when I met, spoke and ate with him, stayed
in his house and drove in a vehicle with him I was not under some form of
spell. Of the existence of Brigitte I am reasonably certain: information
provided by the University of Vienna, both officially and unofficially,
satisfies me of that. Of Brian .... well, who knows? And I am more than
certain that Paul and Brigitte (and/or Brian) are not and have never been
the same person! Paul is educated, literate, rational and an outstanding
scholar of Theosophical history (regardless of whether or not I agree
with him on everything). The evidence of postings by Brigitte and Brian
does not suggest the same can be said of either of them.
