Theosophy, or Divine Wisdom, is a hidden science. It is also the 'Science of the Hidden'. Its field is the invisible. It maintains that everything perceived by the senses has secret depth; the surface of objects, their 'exterior horizon', is but the boundary of a 'darkness filled full with visibility', a phrase used by Maurice Merleau-Ponty (Le Visible et L'Invisible, 1964). This 'second visibility' makes it possible for those, who have developed the necessary psychic faculties to explore the occult dimension of the universe. It is this interior horizon of things, that is the object of Theosophical Investigation,

From the Foreword (p. 11):

" On close observation, you will find that it was never the intention of the Occultists really to conceal what they had been writing from the earnest determined students, but rather to lock up their information for safety-sake, in a secure safe-box, the key to which is - intuition. The degree of diligence and zeal with which the hidden meaning is sought by the student, is generally the test - how far he or she is entitled to the possession of the so buried treasure. " - From: The Mahatma Letters to Alfred Percy Sinnett, p. 275.
