Hmmm... indeed. The Master was a 'Yes' man in the most positive sense. I often saw him publically say, 'Yes, yes, yes' to the plans and schemes that human beings proposed, even when he seemed to know that they would not work.
So then he allowed each lesson to play out without judgement to its fullest extent ... for learning purposes perhaps.
Maybe the simple fact was that the Master trusted the intentions of the University's founder, Dr. Jayasuriya to help mankind. Maybe the official status (the sanction of human governement) did not matter so much to the Master.
