    Do you have any idea whether they will ever open to the public?

      Oh, I am sure they will post their intentions on the Dahesh Museum website in due time. That aside, heaven if I know. And at (allegedly) $75 per square foot, that better be the intent.

      The real question should be: when will it ever be known as the Daheshist Museum?

        I believe that Daheshism will be a scarce in my lifetime. Although I am willing to accept the teachings of Dr Dahesh, it appears that, except for the few, those who have seen and witnessed the things that occurred in his presence are unwilling to make their existence known and promote his teachings.

        But in the meantime, I would like to view the art collection he initiated.

          Daheshism might well be described as a theory built around the hypothesis that a just and merciful supreme deity exists [in whatever form that might be] and that this aforementioned theory seeks to describe the underlying mechanics of existence in a manner involving analogies built upon scientific discoveries that interconnected with abstractions and held by leaps of faith.

          In other words, a theory where religious doctrine (the do's and don'ts that we can chose to accept or reject) and science work together in order to create a whole that is bigger than the sum of the parts — a holistic view that cannot truly be broken down into its components.

          Might we be at a point where we no longer need certain people in order to spread the Daheshist theory? Sure, call it a religion if you like. But at its core, it is a theory. Why? Because it can no longer be proven with tangible proof — the Miracles. And even back when, not all those who witnessed the Miracles made a leap of faith. Whereas, others, who never saw Miracles, believe in the theory and refer to it as their faith — or religion.

          And if I am right, then the responsibility is on everyone's shoulders: I personally think that anyone who accepts the Daheshist theory must at least tell one other person about it.

          Let me give you a practical example: if every believer in the Daheshist theory of Reincarnation was to find the sensible, appropriately timed way to offer the Daheshist perspective anytime God is blamed for a disaster, it would already be a great step forward.

          What I am saying is this: don't look at what the Daheshists are doing or not doing. For all we know, it's now in the hands of individuals that are totally outside the realm of witnesses.

          That aside: I bet you never thought in a million years Virginia would experience a 5.9 Earthquake. Well, it did. My point: never underestimate the power of the unexpected when it comes to a world where — really — everything is ultimately made of spiritual fluids.

          Without the narrative, Doctor Dahesh becomes a brand and a tourist destination. On the contrary, you and others should refuse to see the collection until that which he wanted is restored.
