Thanks, dear Bruce, for this excerpt on electricity, Ahrimanic Exuasia, and
the need for morality in these *matters*.

I remember somewhere Steiner saying that electricity is the decay or the
fragmentation of Thought. What of that, say ye, any and all?

(or post-modern, even--smile), we see that there are more than just
"sub-physical forces", but beings, Ahrimanic at a high level, engaged in the
business of fragmentation, separation, in-organicism. The moral
light--Light--that penetrates and unifies is what is needed then, i would
think. That Light is the Living Christ. That's how I see it, and I am still
learning to see more deeply, so any help is always appreciated.

Again, the entrance of the Light that is Christ. Somehow, I see the T of
eurythmy here, raying down into the head, on to the heart, through the body
and to the limbs. TOUCH. T. Touch as more than idle, more than the
switching or exchange of electricity. TOUCH as the entrance of Divine
Thought, that LIGHT.

generating principle, not just the degenerating one.
