I have received assurances that the Wright Institute is not a cult. Rather, they offer ways to engage in "growth."
I'm going to paraphrase the letter I received. I'm not going to unravel all of its flagrant logical flaws, however illustrative those flaws might be. I'll just comment on a couple of facts.

It saddens me that people can look at all of the information available on Wright and not see what is right in front of their eyes.

I am also moved to once again express my gratitude to Rick Ross for providing this forum, and to all of the posters for their valuable information and insights.
