What did the Western Esoterical (“New Age”) stage looked like at that time? 1922 … Jiddu Krishnamurti, “the Golden Child” of the Theosophical movement, get “enlightened”. (The Danish mystic Martinus Thomsen had had a similar life-changing experience the year before.)
It will not be until 1929 before Krishnamurti turns his back on the theosophists. Theosophy with its doctrine of “root races”, the evolution of souls and cultures, and our rise towards light & sovereignty, peaks the years until then, as I have understood it.

Hitler takes full control of the Nazi party in 1922, too, I google.
