I'm trying to figure out how to post to the group.
This time I just using 'reply', see if that works...
1. Somewhere, long time ago, I read Steiner on eggs
- something about eggs not being good for young children, bring out allergies to
other foods, bring early change of teeth, etc. Now cannot remember where I read
this: Any ideas?
2.. Similarly, I read and can't recall where
Steiner on spiders, as in form and movement, originating from cast off aspect of
human being in earlier period of evolution. Any ideas where this might
3. Also, something along same lines about dolphins.
Any ideas where I might have read this?
I read a lot of Steiner's work about 20-25 years
ago, and have continued to do so over the years, however can't always recall
where I read what?

What is it that you want me to prove? I don't
I wrote: "The tying together of
historical time and spiritual events
is distinctive to apocalyptic
religions, mainly Christianity."
Your reply to this statement
was: "Ok, prove it then - give just one
I provided a list of examples. Maybe they were not
what you wanted
to hear. Scores of "events" fill the Bible, the
primary one being
the Event of Golgotha. This occurred c. 2000
years ago: the
crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord.
Golgotha was not a
metaphor. It was a historical fact, but one
that can only be proven
and verified through spiritual introspection.
The same applies for all other "events" in the Bible. I don't
I or anyone could supply the type of hard evidence that is
to prove the physical reality of the event at Golgotha or the
Event or the future incarnation of Ahriman, especially since
occur on the spiritual dimension. Even the anti-Christ would
impossible to prove if he were standing right before you—unless you
had "eyes to see" his appearance on the Etheric Plane.
Until I know exactly what you mean by "provide an example" I can't
help you anymore than this. Maybe Starman can. In fact, where in
hell is he? He's the expert on RS.
*******History is a vast subject: we have been
through a re-education in how to think about it through anthroposophy. People
trying to approach the spiritual understanding of history while wearing the
materialistic spectacles of typical 'historical thinking' are just
bringing baggage along that makes comprehension impossible. One must greatly
increase one's depth of feeling to even begin to really grasp human history.
A few examples: as we have repeatedly mentioned here, the
number 666 refers to a spirit-being, the anti-spirit of the Sun, who works in
cycles of 666 years. There was a great event approximately 666 years before
Christ and another culminating about 666 A.D.; the first was Greek philosophy,
the second was Islam. In twice 666 or 1332 A.D. another evil movement reached
its zenith in the time of the massacre of the Templars, setting back European
history. Thrice 666 is 1998, when Osama bin Laden ordered all Americans
targeted for death.
Another: Steiner predicted more and
more people would begin having spontaneous 'feeling-experiences' of the
Christ, as St. Paul did on the road to Damascus (which is perception of the
Christ on the etheric plane) in the 1930s. The modern phenomenon of being
"born again" in such a direct experience dates to that time, when for instance
Bill W. and Dr. Bob formed the Christian fellowship that was given the 12 Step
spiritual Path of AA.
If one is cynical about the
Christ-Spirit or looks only for external "events" like dates of battles or
what purely external history considers important, this is easy to sneer
at. But even dates of battles can be predicted by using Trithemius.
Sept. 2001 is found to correspond to the Battle of Salamis in the last
Micha-El Age, a great conflict twixt East and West.
are a couple of specific lecture-cycles, Turning Points in Spiritual History
and Historical Symptomatology, for people that are not just asking rhetorical
questions. I'm not yet convinced the good 'Frater' is doing any more than that
