Taposhri Ganguly: Theosophy and World of Cyborgs
Taposhri Ganguly, also known as Taps, holds a doctorate degree in Applied Statistics and works at a Management Consultancy in London. Besides her day job as a statistician, which primarily requires her to build and explore human behavioural models, she feels an internal need to have a number or an equation for everything in life.
Mostly consumed and fascinated by patterns all around, she finds a unique strength in the interrelated and connected net of emotions, thoughts and actions. Taps was introduced to Theosophy on a long-haul flight from London to San Francisco by a co-passenger. She left that conversation while disembarking not knowing that a few years later, a series of incidents would lead her to the Secret Doctrine.
Taps associates the Secret Doctrine to home, to a sense of belonging and to a knowing that doesn’t need words or numbers. It just is. At another level, she treats it as a thesis of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and finds it deeply fascinating to read and contemplate through it like an academic.
Cyborg is the term applied to an organism that has restored function or enhanced capabilities, due to the integration of some artificial component or technology that relies on feedback or chain of cause and effect. There are several well-known cyborgs in the world that we live in today; Neil Harbisson, Moon Ribas to name a few. With a prime focus in art and pushing boundaries of consciousness beyond human realm into a man-machine space, where and how does Theosophy explain this interconnectedness and dependence?

Gary Kidgell: The Spiritual Path
Gary Kidgell is the Organising Secretary of the Theosophical Society in Scotland and the Librarian for the Theosophical Society in Scotland Charity. A professional astrologer and former student of the English Theosophist Douglas Baker, Gary has lectured extensively on esoteric subjects, as well as undertaking numerous astrological consultations, throughout the UK and Europe. His first book: The Inner Journey: Pathways to the Higher Self has been distributed internationally. Gary's second work: Greek Hero Myths: Symbols of Transformation was released in August 2020.
H.P. Blavatsky stated 'There is a road steep and thorny, beset with perils of every kind' which leads to the 'very heart of the Universe.' The homeward journey to the source of one's being is commonly described as the 'Path of Return.' As a means of successfully traversing the Path, one adopts spiritual practices and disciplines to establish a union with the Soul or higher Self. In this presentation, the speaker outlines the nature of the Path and the trials and tribulations which confront the spiritual aspirant as they seek to become aligned to the rhythms of our universe and render themselves capable of expressing its evolutionary intent.
