Yes, it's 100 times as long in the spheres of effects as
it is which incarnate/embodied in a sphere of causes.

As to the question of how much Purucker knew, I think he
knew a lot more that he said publically, and limited himself
to elaborate on what was previously taught or hinted at,
rather that give out a lot of new ideas. That's different
than what you seem to suggest, which is that Purucker got
what he knew *just* from reading the books.
