- Dear Mark.
I'd like to add something to the good remarks posted by goodwill men like
Stephen and Adam.
We are living a very special moment in time : a war started , and we all are
part in it, wiiling or not. So as a consequence of the wartime also in the
list there is emphasized the following fact.
You'll find easily that there are on the list two or three contributors who
use to dress with anthro-dresses their own racist and nationalistic
prejudices, with a habit that was common in the Anglo-Saxon occultist groups
in XIX and XX Century
. This habit in Spiritual Science is totally out of tune, but it has in
itself a positive side, if we are able to see in ourselves how habits like
This gesture is a "trade mark" of the instictual infection of the
Intellectual Soul and we can overcome this kind of gesture if we are
faithful to the basic practices of the inner work, that is the five
exercises of "Occult Science" that not only Steiner but also powerful
researchers like Massimo Scaligero and Georg Kuhlewind put as the core of
the wholeness of Antropos-Sophia cognitive path.
In this way also an electronic tool like this can find its way to be
somewhat spiritualized and put on Michael's service.
