The human mind can hardly remain entirely free from bias, and decisive opinions are often formed before a thorough examination of a subject from all its aspects has been made. This is said with reference to the prevailing double mistake a of limiting Theosophy to Buddhism: We theosophists of India are ourselves the real culprits, although, at the time, we did our best to correct the mistake.

Geology[ edit ] The Spratly Islands consist of islands, reefs, banks and shoals that consist of biogenic carbonate. These accumulations of biogenic carbonate lie upon the higher crests of major submarine ridges that are uplifted fault blocks known by geologists as horsts.
These horsts are part of a series of parallel and en echelon, half-grabens and rotated fault-blocks. The long axes of the horsts, rotated fault blocks and half- grabens form well-defined linear trends that lie parallel to magnetic anomalies exhibited by the oceanic crust of the adjacent South China Sea.
The horsts, rotated fault blocks, and the rock forming the bottoms of associated grabens consist of stretched and subsided continental crust that is composed of TriassicJurassicand Cretaceous strata that include calc-alkalic extrusive igneous rocks, intermediate to acid intrusive igneous rocks, sandstonessiltstonesdark-green claystones His native soil juan laya, and metamorphic rocks that include biotite — muscovite — feldspar — quartz migmatites and garnet — mica schists.
They occurred as the result of the tectonic stretching of continental crust along underlying deeply rooted detachment faults. During the Late Cretaceous and Early Oligocenethe earliest period of tectonic stretching of continental crust and formation of horsts, half-grabens, and rotated fault-blocks occurred in association the rifting and later sea-floor spreading that created the South China Sea.
During the Late Oligocene-Early Miocene additional stretching and block faulting of continental crust occurred within the Spratly Islands and adjacent Dangerous Ground.
During and after this period of tectonic activity, corals and other marine life colonised the crests of the horsts and other ridges that lay in shallow water. The remains of these organisms accumulated over time as biogenic carbonates that comprise the current day reefs, shoals and cays of the Spratly Islands.
Starting with their formation in Late Cretaceous, fine-grained organic-rich marine sediments accumulated within the numerous submarine half-grabens that underlie sea bottom within the Dangerous Ground region. They include thick sequences of Cenozoic sediments east of the Spratly Islands.
Southeast and west of them, there also exist thick accumulations of sediments that possibly might contain economic oil and gas reserves lie closer to the Spratly Islands. Under the influence of the dominant wind direction, which changes seasonally, these sediments move around the island to change the shape and size of the island.
Groundwater levels fluctuate during the day with the rhythm of the tides. The principal minerals bearing phosphate are podolite, lewistonite and dehonite. Larger islands are capable of supporting tropical forestscrub forestcoastal scrub and grasses.
It is difficult to determine which species have been introduced or cultivated by humans. Taiping Island Itu Aba was reportedly covered with shrubscoconutand mangroves in ; pineapple was also cultivated there when it was profitable.
Other accounts mention papayabanana, palmand even white peach trees growing on one island. A few islands that have been developed as small tourist resorts had soil and trees brought in and planted where there was none. These species reportedly continue to nest even on islands inhabited by military personnel such as Pratas to some extent, though it is believed that their numbers have declined.
Species found here include streaked shearwater Calonectris leucomelasbrown booby Sula leucogasterred-footed booby S. Little information is available regarding the current status of the islands' seabird populations, though it is likely that birds may divert nesting sites to smaller, less disturbed islands.
Bird eggs cover the majority of Southwest Caya small island in the eastern Danger Zone. Scientists have focused their research on the marine environment, while the ecology of the terrestrial environment remains relatively unknown.
