Steiner met Christian Rosencreutz in the spiritual world. His spiritual
research is all his own work with the actual beings and people in the spirit
He is the 'prophet' of the fifth post-Atlantean epoch, and has told us the
story from the beginning to the end of mankind and the story of the life
between death and rebirth and a whole lot more besides.
He knew so much that it was inevitable that he did not have chance to tell
it all, but an amount of it would hinder rather than help us develop, as for
example elementary mathematics was top secret with Pythagoras.
