      Comes Alan Turing. In The Code Book, by Simon Sing, author of Fermat'=

      Comes Charles Babbage, son of a London Banker in 1791, a mathematical ge=
      nius
      who created calculating engines, which also were vital to the development =
      of modern
      computing. He was a statistician and compiler of MORTALITY tables. On rea=
      ding the
      poem Vision of Sin by Tennyson, he was irritated at the line which read

      Every moment dies a man, every moment one is born.

      He wrote as follows, offering a correction.
      It must be manifest that if this were true the population of the world =
      would be at a
      standstill. I suggest that in the next edition of your poem you have it re=

      In the late sixties TV series, The Prisoner, Patrick McGoohan portrayed a=
      man
      imprisoned in a Truman Show like village, where he had been designated as n=
      umber
      6. Refusing to be broken in spirit he would shout I am not a number I am =
      a free
      man! The series attracted a cult following, as it was an external symptom=
      atic picture
      of an inner condition many were becoming aware of, albeit vaguely.
      This is only one form of reducing the human being. There are others. =
      Seeing a
      human being as only a statistic, a number, summing one up and getting a wro=
      ng
      answer, is one of the false conceptions, counter images which, as Steiner w=
      arns,
      adversary powers use as a technique in the occult imprisonment of humanity,=
      now
      beginning to cross the threshold.
      If we humans can be convinced that we consist of atoms, that the univer=
      se is
      simply constructed of tiny bits of substance, then, as part of this univers=
      e, we are as
      atoms also, and can be tossed here and there, incorporated into whatever
      mechanised universe is constructed for us. The world of the atom is finite=
      . If I am
      physically in one space, you cannot be. So we may fight. Etheric bodies c=
      an
      interpenetrate, flow without boundaries, are social rather than merely pers=
      onal.
      Emil Bock rightly used the word chilling, because to give a person a=
      single
      numerical value is to freeze them , arresting the flow of the ethers into r=
      igidity. A
      sinister effect of this is the bringing of the etheric body into a sub-mate=
      rialised state,
      which cannot be accepted into the etheric world after death. The spiritual=
      world
      cannot accept solidified lies.
      The lies are fairly clear – heart as pump, brain as computer, sun gase=
      ous ball
      which will die, nature nurture and so on. That is one thing. As humans ar=
      e pressed
      ever downwards, further into the dead-zone of the sub ethers, they get dep=
      ressed.
      They become ill, as did the subjects of King David, albeit differently. So=
      lutions will be
      and are being offered. Here we may see another branch of the division of t=
      he two
      future technologies. The etheric, and the sub-etheric, some of which are =
      now being
      disguised in some very subtle ways to mimic the living world.
      For some time I have been interested in Patrick Flanagan. Briefly: -=
      aged eight he
      had a vivid dream (I believe involving aliens) in which he was told to stud=
      y science
      and help humanity. He was a prodigy, and aged 12 invented a missile detect=
      or, which
      brought the interest of various government agencies. At 13 he invented the=

      neurophone, an electrical device which by-passes filters in the brain which=
      regulate
      incoming impulses, information etc, and transmits message to all nerves in =
      the brain
      via a tiny pea sized organ of balance, saccule, in the inner ear.
      Ostensibly for the deaf it conducts voice directly into the brain (not=
      as is usual
      through skull or bone conduction) the neurophone is now being offered as a =
      so called
      self improvement device. It can be recorded with affirmations (Which Ste=
      iner called
      repetitive lying) which are then played sub-audibly, subliminally into the=
      brain during
      sleep via the device. Or as a technique for learning while sleeping, as a t=
      ape recording
      is filtered out by the sleeping person, and little is retained.
      Flanagan was an employee at the Pentagon working on weaponry and later=
      was
      connected with the CIA who apparently offered to fund him at any college of=
      his
      choice. No doubt out of the goodness of their hearts.
      A good friend there specialised in subliminal manipulation of prisoner=
      s. Instead
      of the threat of physical torture, similar anxiety states could be induced =
      by sub
      audible sound and the subliminal displaying of images via screens or genera=
      l décor –
      pictures etc. He speaks of the overwhelming power of this technique, also =
      used in
      supermarkets to prevent shoplifting. Which apparently it does. No need fo=
      r
      conscience. Where else it may be used, and to what end he does not say.
      Together they have devised speed-learning technology. He also promise=
      s
      telepathy, communication with dolphins, and protection from electro-magneti=

      , to name but a few possibilities.
      People are beginning to suffer physically from, therefore becoming awa=
      re of,
      electo magnetism both in workplace and home. Patrick Flanagan has the answ=
      er to
      this, in his white-noise modified into golden noise machine. White noise,c=
      onsisting
      of many thousands of random electrical frequencies, screens out other elect=
      rical and
      magnetic impulses. Creating a sort of Faraday Cage.
      Flanagan has invented Golden Noise, ratios of sound in the golden prop=
      ortion or
      mean, played inaudibly, which INDUCE STATES OF BLISS AND ECSTACY.
      This is précis only, as it is such a huge subject and as it was not th=

      g much,

      In the light of Spiritual Science, I would say that the danger is that=
      imaginations

      Message 2 of 18 , Jul 2, 2003

        Steiner:

        http://wn.elib.com/Steiner/Lectures/19211204p01.html

        "The state of the people of Middle Europe, if they will not accept
        the Spiritual, was not badly described by a man who gave no thought
        at all to the possibility of a spiritual regeneration of humanity.
        Oswald Spengler has written his book on the Decline of the West, that
        brilliant but thoroughly pessimistic book — although he has
        repudiated the pessimism in a subsequent pamphlet. Of course, it is
        pessimism to speak of the decline of the West. But Spengler is
        actually speaking of the decline of culture, of something that is of
        the soul. Without spiritual regeneration the people of Middle Europe
        will suffer injury to their souls. But in this corner of Northern
        Europe, human beings cannot be injured only in the life of soul; when
        they are injured in the soul, their very bodily nature is injured at
        the same time. In a way this is fortunate, for if the people of
        Middle Europe do not accept spirituality, they become barbarian, they
        degenerate in soul. The Northern people can only die out, in the
        bodily sense, for everything depends here upon the particular
        constitution of the body."

        (snip)

        "That is the thought I should like to leave with you. Those who feel
        themselves Anthroposophists should realise that they are a tiny
        handful of people in the world who must apply all their energy to
        shaking a lazy humanity out of its lethargy and helping it onwards.
        Those who hate Anthroposophy to-day — this may be said. among
        ourselves — hate it because their love of comfort and ease prevents
        them from being willing to grapple with the great tasks of humanity.
        They are afraid of what they must overcome if they are to transform
        their easy-going thoughts and feelings and experience something much
        more profound.

        "For this reason we see many a storm of opposition arising against
        what is taking place in Anthroposophy and developing out of it. You
        too will have to accustom yourselves to violent attacks being made
        against Anthroposophy or Spiritual Science by reactionaries of every
        kind, by all who love to saunter along their old beaten tracks.

        "Those however who let this opposition deter them from developing
        their powers, are not firmly rooted in the real task of
        Anthroposophy. When people see how Anthroposophy is being attacked to-
        day from all sides, they may become timid and say: Would it not be
        better to go forward more quietly so that the opposition may be less
        violent? Or again they may ask, if they find praise being meted out
        to them by men who in a decadent age hold leading positions: What
        have I done wrong? This is a matter of great importance from the
        anthroposophical point of view. Attacks and abuse are usually
        explicable for the reasons given above. But if praise were to come
        from the same quarters, it would be a bad augury for anthroposophical
        world! It is just because the opponents of Anthroposophy to-day do
        attack it, that we can be reassured — but only, of course, in the
        sense that we must apply all the more energy in order to introduce
        Anthroposophy into the world, not out of personal idiosyncrasies but
        out of a deep realisation of the needs and tasks of the world."

        STUDIES IN GOETHEAN PSYCHOLOGY Steiner; Now, the luciferic beings would have been unable to achieve anything at all without the help of the ahrimanic beings.

          STUDIES IN GOETHEAN PSYCHOLOGY

          Steiner;

          ""Now, the luciferic beings would have been unable to achieve
          anything
          at all without the help of the ahrimanic beings. In all their
          intentions and hope they reckoned on their support. Indeed, it must
          always be that two forces strive together in this kind of working.
          Just as the luciferic beings were disappointed in Greece, so were the
          ahrimanic beings disappointed in Rome and the way it developed. The
          luciferic beings wanted to lead Grecian souls away from the earth-
          planet and the ahrimanic beings wanted to contribute their efforts to
          the end that the Roman civilization would assume a particular form.
          The ahrimanic beings exerted their strongest efforts in Rome, just as
          the luciferic beings did in Greece. They calculated that a certain
          hardening would arise on earth brought about by an entirely blind
          obedience and subjection to Rome. What did the ahrimanic powers want
          to accomplish in Rome? They wanted to establish a Roman Empire that
          would extend over the whole of the then known world, embracing within
          it every human activity. It would be directed entirely from Rome with
          the strictest centralization and the utmost development of the rule
          of might. They sought to establish a widely flung state machinery
          that would include and make subject to it all religious and artistic
          life. Its goal would be to stamp out all individuality. Every people
          and human being would comprise merely some small part of this mighty
          state machine. "

          Bradford comments;

          To meditate on this paragraph brings us to the current activities of
          the Luciferic and Ahrimanic forces that have taken their abode in the
          thinking of American Imperialism. America is the new Rome for the
          Ahrimanic and Luciferic intentions that have not died out, as long as
          humanity remains unconscious of the psychological entwining of these
          forces within the psyche of each and every individual. To this, we
          can look very closely at the arguments that Steve Talbott raised.

          Talbott's current arguments in his Netfuture reveal exactly the
          polarities of Inflation and Reductionism that are the hallmarks of
          Luciferic and Ahrimanic working together towards their agenda, that
          failed in Rome due to the Christ Event. Yet today, we have no
          physical Christ Event, we have the moment when the Etheric Christ
          arose and we have the Michael School indications that that which
          appears as a type of Jungian level psychology is really the action of
          untracked Beings within the soul strata of humanity. These can be
          understood as dynamic Goethean observations in psychology.

          http://www.praxagora.com/stevet/netfuture/2003/Jun2403_146.html

          "Carl Jung may throw light on the matter. The Swiss
          psychiatrist pointed out that when integral contents of the
          personality
          are lost to consciousness, an inferiority results. Moreover, the
          sense of
          inferiority gives rise to moral resentment and "always indicates that
          the
          missing element is something which, to judge by this feeling about it,
          really ought not to be missing, or which could be made conscious if
          only
          one took sufficient trouble" (Two Essays in Analytical Psychology,
          Princeton University, 1972, pp. 139ff.).

          I feel free to mention this only because the way a personal lack
          leads to
          a sense of inferiority and then to moral resentment (so that we are
          happy
          to bring others down a peg or two, to our own level) is such a
          universal
          fact of life that none of us -- if we are possessed of the slightest
          self-
          awareness -- can fail to recognize the process in our own lives. So
          it is
          not a matter of pointing fingers at individuals or singling out any
          group
          as "morally challenged". But where we can recognize a broad social
          and
          intellectual pattern such as the one presented by reductionist
          rhetoric,
          we really ought to try to understand what is going on.

          The lack Jung spoke of was a loss of contents properly belonging to
          consciousness. Where do we see such a loss more in evidence than in
          disciplines such as artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and
          reductionist science in general? Surely if there is any place where
          we
          should expect a loss of conscious contents, it is where such contents
          are
          commonly denigrated as a matter of principle. The main drift in these
          fields is to ignore as completely as possible the immediate contents
          of
          consciousness, reinterpreting them in terms of what is not conscious.
          It is hard to imagine a more direct route to the conditions of lack,
          inferiority, and moral resentment Jung describes. The entire project
          of
          these disciplines is to drop things from consciousness.

          In other words, there is a truth of sorts in the reductionist claims.
          Or, you could say, there is truth in the plight of the reductionist.
          At the level of its symptoms the psyche never lies. A kind of
          practical
          reductionism really has been occurring as the inevitable result, over
          time, of theoretical reductionism, and we should not be surprised if
          it
          produces pathological results. In a society where the cry echoes
          from all
          sides, "You are nothing but a machine", we can rightly ask whether
          what
          we are really hearing is "I sense that I am becoming nothing but a
          machine
          and, dammit all, I won't tolerate anyone else being more than I am".

          There is in this symptom, as Jung clarifies it, a paradoxical double
          aspect: on the one hand, a sense of inferiority, but, on the other
          hand,
          a compensating "psychic inflation" through which the ego assumes god-
          like
          pretensions. After all, am I, as one of the cognoscenti, not in the
          omniscient position of knowing the real truth about everyone else,
          while
          they remain benighted and self-deluded, ignorant of
          their "mereness"? We
          may wonder as well whether this tendency toward inflation helps to
          explain
          grandiose visions of our future as a race of cyborgs destined to
          become
          masters of the universe.

          Another consequence of the loss of conscious contents, aside from a
          sense
          of inferiority and a compensating ego inflation, is that our
          conceptual
          resources for understanding the world are diminished. When we lose
          awareness of all but the machine-like in ourselves, we also lose the
          ability to conceive the world as anything but a machine. Those whose
          intellectual horizons are encompassed by digital machinery tend to
          see the
          world computationally, just as their predecessors saw the world in
          terms
          of clocks, cameras, steam engines, telegraph lines, and movie
          projectors.
          There is security in believing the world is like the things one knows
          best, and intellectual ease in draping one's well-practiced ideas
          like a
          veil over the Great Unknown.

          Turnabout is Fair Play
          ----------------------

          I willingly own up to some mischief here. "Psychologizing the
          opposition"
          is a tactic more often abused than productively employed in worthwhile
          discourse. But I offer two justifications for the tactic, apart from
          what
          I take to be the demonstrable plausibility of the foregoing.

          First, what I have said is no mere academic exercise. The future
          hangs
          in the balance of our self-knowledge. When we lose much of ourselves
          to
          the subconscious, we become blind to our own motivations. We may also
          seek external powers to compensate for our loss of internal mastery.
          And, in fact, what we see in much of science and technology today is
          precisely a blind drive toward power. The idea of inevitability has
          widely substituted for the submerged sphere of consciousness where we
          might have felt called upon to exercise personal responsibility for
          our
          own actions.

          In the second place, Brooks repeatedly psychologizes his intellectual
          antagonists -- and in the most shameless manner. So I thought a
          little
          turnabout would be good medicine. To give one example of what I
          mean: in
          1963 Joseph Weizenbaum wrote the program called ELIZA, which he
          designed
          to play the role of a psychologist who largely parrots back the
          responses
          of the patient. Weizenbaum was shocked at how dead-seriously many
          people
          took ELIZA while "conversing" with it. And he was even more shocked
          to
          hear psychiatrists speaking highly of the potentials for such therapy.
          So Weizenbaum wrote,

          What can the psychiatrist's image of his patient be when he sees
          himself, as therapist, not as an engaged human being acting as a
          healer, but as an information processor, following rules, etc.?

          This is the one and only statement by Weizenbaum that Brooks cites,
          and he
          proceeds, without any explanation whatever, to label
          it "nonsensical" --
          unless you can call this gratuitous and unsupported bit of
          psychologizing
          an explanation:

          Weizenbaum was fleeing from the notion that humans were no more
          than
          machines. He could not bear the thought. So he denied its
          possibility
          outright .... [He is] afraid to give up on the specialness of
          mankind
          .... It is intellectually too scary. (pp. 167-8)

          Inflation and Reductionism seeks to encapsulate the Human I AM within
          amazing Rhetoric that unconsciously is shuttled in the soul life
          between Lucifer and Ahriman. MIT and Cal Tech and countless
          universities preach the same gospel of Nano technology and the human
          machine. Nothing is more odious to the development of humanity than
          the eliminated Christ event. The loss of the vision of the Logos and
          human Initiation to the paradigm of the progress towards realizing
          the efficiency of Man as a Machine.

          It is our task to discern the good intentions of such a publication
          as Southern Cross Review and understand when Friends of the Michael
          School battle for the future spiritual development of mankind and
          Initiation. This initiation leads mankind upwards to the Fission of
          Love, the amazing Fission that transformed the DNA and Tree of Life
          to author a Spirit Man body as the higher gift of human development.
          It matters not that this will unfold in the future.

          It matters a great deal when we understand that the Science of the
          Human Spirit is depicted in great detail from the lab notes of "The
          Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz". It matters a great deal
          when we look at the detail of how we slowly arrive at stages of
          development where humans arise with Spirit Self faculties. It matters
          a great deal that our universities and the self development of
          humanity know nothing of the upper levels of psychology that will
          produce higher Initiation in human beings. It matters a great deal
          that we understand here and now that the workings of Lucifer and
          Ahriman are the same that Steve Talbott was describing in how the
          Rhetoric of Science swerves, avoids and stamps out the Science of the
          Christ event. And Talbott is reluctant to agrue the reality from this
          perspective. Yet he is touching into the very nerve center of the
          Luciferic and Ahrimanic regions of soul deception.

          To understand what Oswarld Spengler predicted and compare what
          Steiner predicted around for the year 1933 allows us to look into the
          depth of all that the Michael School and the friends of the Michael
          School must maintain. Spengler lived through and predicted what has
          come to pass in the same way that Steiner gave us the rudimental
          grounding we need to face and maintain consciousness of how the
          mighty intentions of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic forces intend to
          achieve their goals. Today in America those mighty geographic centers
          of Hollywood and Wall street- or Washington D.C. reveal the mystery
          centers for either inflating the I Am into a visionary hallucination
          or developing an entire Global machinery that answers to the Might,
          bribery, deception and economic machinations of Washington D.C. the
          new Rome. A mighty visionary culture that betrays the Earth and takes
          orders from Washington is once again clear to diagnose.

          Spengler makes this prediction and the prediction that he has made is
          the evidence of the condition of soul life that predominates in 90%
          of the world since 1933.

          "...because of facing the limits of our
          knowledge in the twilight of the scientific age we have to go back to
          some kind of religion, reminding us of the prediction of almost
          forgotten German philosopher Spengler who in his book "The Decline of
          the West" has observed that: "As scientists become more arrogant and
          less tolerant of other belief systems, notably religious ones,
          Spengler declared, society will rebel against science and embrace
          religious fundamentalism and other irrational systems of belief.
          Spengler predicted that the decline of science and the resurgence of
          irrationality would began at the end of this millennium"

          Creating the Dogma of Materialism- The Biblical dogmas of
          Fundamentalism - The Dogmas of Hebrew Nationalism - The Dogmas of
          Islamic Fundamentalism - are the only worn out paradigms and the
          lovely WMD that Lucifer and Ahriman use to achieve what they failed
          to Achieve in Rome. Today we are truly at a Michael Threshold again,
          and as the Native American declared so well - "Today is a good day to
          be Incarnated with the Knowledge of Spiritual Science and the Michael
          School." It is the raw courage of the Saturn Folk of the Native
          Americans that could say, as they were being exterminated, "Today is
          a good day to die."

            This deprivation could not be allowed to continue, and Anne spent two =

            The power of entrainment (frequency following response) is very great.=
            It is
            experienced below what is audible; affects brain wave patterns and can be
            incorporated in music – see quote below from "The Science of Binaural Beat=

            Brainwave Entrainment Technology

            Resonant entrainment of oscillating systems is a well-understood princ=
            iple within
            the physical sciences. If a tuning fork designed to produce a frequency of =
            440 Hz is
            struck (causing it to oscillate) and then brought into the vicinity of anot=
            her 440 Hz
            tuning fork, the second tuning fork will begin to oscillate. The first tuni=
            ng fork is said
            to have entrained the second or caused it to resonate. The physics of entra=
            inment
            apply to biosystems as well. Of interest here are the electromagnetic brain=
            waves. The

            It is no accident that television News programs usually begin with loud d=

            music, accompanied by fast flashing images, which fades to a persistent rep=

            The first experience of televisual imaging takes some minutes to effect thi=

            The brain is, of course, not the mind. However, it takes a conscious =

            In young children the situation is far worse. The child is open to su=
            rroundings in a
            formative way. He/she is actually creating inner organs, faculties and fut=

            In her book "The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail" Silvia Frank speaks =
            of the Sampo,
            the three sided Mill of the Kalevala ( Joksu – please elaborate!) which g=

            Sylvia Franke – "This miraculous entity not only grinds substances bu=
            t also creates
            them."

            Further on we are told that the Mill, the Sampo is roofed over by a many c=

            which also revolves. In Finnish it is called Kirokansi. This word signifi=

            As I write I can hear the neighbour's children making Teletubby sounds=
            . And here
            we come to the gravest aspect, the perversion and subversion of speech.
            Dumbing down makes us dumb. Animals have no speech. Speech is not for=

            They

            Rudolf Steiner 2 Oct 1916 -- For those having spiritual insight into w=
            orld-
            evolution, this electrical age is, at the same time, a challenge to seek gr=
            eater spiritual
            depth, a genuine spiritual deepening. For, to that force which remains out=
            wardly
            unknown to sense observation, there must be added the spiritual forces of t=
            he soul,
            lying as deeply hidden as the electrical forces, that also has to be awaken=
            ed.
            Think how mysterious electrical power is! It was first drawn out of i=
            t's secret
            hiding places by Galvini and Volta. And what dwells in the human soul, what=
            is
            explored by Spiritual Science, surely as the electrical force is drawn out,=
            so surely the
            force hidden in, and belonging to the soul that is sought by Spiritual Scie=
            nce, will also
            be drawn forth. End quote.

            He also points to the cosmic significance of the discoveries of Galvini =
            and Volta,
            saying that they could be made because the Earth, following it's lemniscati=
            c course
            THROUGH TIME had come back to the point of intersection where it had last b=
            een
            during the Lemurian epoch when "magnetic and electrical forces established =

            themselves within man."

            Rudolf Steiner – Man implanted into himself from the cosmos the princi=
            ple of
            electricity. There lies the cause of the fact that Galvini discovered ele=
            ctricity at that
            particular time. Mankind as a whole, in that moment remembered the breaki=
            ng in of
            electricity into the human being and thereupon, as a result of this recolle=
            ction, man
            impregnated his whole civilisation with electricity. The soul and spirit i=
            n man found
            again what it had once experienced long ago. End quote.

            Children have already been damaged by cartoon and TV generally, as so =
            well
            explicated by Bradford. When my eldest son was small he sometimes watched t=
            he
            Daleks at my Mother-in-Law's house, (as we did not have a TV) from a safe h=
            iding
            place behind the sofa. He could only bear the odd peep. Maybe ten years l=
            ater, in a
            holiday cottage with my second son and a friend, the boys (aged about nine)=
            watched
            a fairly innocuous film. When it ended, the friend spoke one memorable sen=
            tence,
            summing it up. "Not enough blood." And that was years ago.
            A very damaging development is the use of humour in conjunction with h=
            orribly
            graphic violence, especially in a recent spate of gangster films. The humo=
            urous
            situations are spliced with horrific violence, so closely linked that the e=

              "It's a familiar story: Robert Johnson traded his soul for the
              ability to play the guitar like no one else. Dr. Faustus traded his
              for the ability to effect cures and other medicinal wonders. In
              modern western society, it is the citizens and their governments who
              sell themselves (and their souls) to oil and the military. Nowhere is
              this Faustian deal more complete and pervasive than here in the
              United States. "

              Bradford comments;

              Aside from the quibblings and fine print of the Intellectual Soul in
              the wranglings of world Politics the foundation of insights must
              remain that as in Rome and Greece as Steiner has indicated, along
              with Genghis Khan - a massive Luciferic and Ahrimanic agenda is now
              flying behind the American Shadow.

              "Can'tyou guessmy name" is such an intensely interesting leap out of
              the Intellectual soul. People sense that something is going on but
              cannot yet put their thinking behind it. Thanks Danny. Sometimes I
              wonder, like in the old World War II writings, if one day, the
              battles and efforts we made to be clear here will not also be
              remembered and maybe it is even better, the living thinking of
              thousands over the globe is touching, and holding onto small
              fragments of the Michael Time Spirit INtentions. These Rain down into
              the heads and souls of men in a way we cannot even imagine.

              Starbirgarden talked about the arising of Electricity and Volta as a
              memory of the Atlantean times. How to hold fast to a streaming in
              this electric medium that serves the research and thought flow, as
              inner content, as inner substance that only resembles in the flow of
              the electric medium the substance of true spiritual activity.
              Starbirgardens recalling of Dr. Steiner said about Electricity
              reveals a great deal of what we are surrounded with and what youth
              are surrounded with. TeleTubbies indeed. False Sorathian use of what
              a child comes to learn from the tall halfling Angels, called parents,
              called adults is falsified for false speech, computer speech that
              responds without inflection, gesture, warmth, liquid milk of the word
              that flows as much to the child's soul, as it grows as breast milk
              did from mother's living heart forces.

              Electricity can make the nervers a bickering battle ground. In fact,
              one finds that most people who use the internet within the electrical
              medium fall into the trap of feeling the surge of electrical and
              thought energy as a kind of aggression against someone or something.
              Much that is happening currently on this list is not of that nature.
              Much of the rich in depth research has drawn wonderful rich souls out
              of the world to communicate with each other. It also, by the very
              substance of the research and the attitude of various participants,
              allowed for such ideas shared to shrivel aspects of false soul vision
              and ask them to retreat.

              It is the same as being able to name Ahriman's activity or facing
              Reincarnation and Karma.. as in the Mystery Dramas, once you name the
              soul force that is swirling around individuals or a country, the
              Ahrimanic forces feel these insights as burning. That is why Vision
              and the Goethean Impulse is more potent journalism than journalism.
              To send streams of living thinking, naming the right symptoms with
              the right beings and including the Christ event and Christian
              Rosenkreutz and vast, mature insights, like those that Starbirgarden,
              Joksu, Bruce... and so many others produce.. All the activity of the
              School of Michael to be just that, a stream of thinking that is
              transformed, rising in the hearts and Rains down on many heads in
              various places and allows them to slightly awaken and ask questions.

              What are the real dynamics of the Michael School? Does it not cross
              the Threshold and is it not offered up as our best vision as students
              of Spiritual Science, and does not Michael take that which human
              effort has sanctioned and deliver this new water sprinkle of gold
              into thousands of heads we know not of? I think so.

                Hello Jan!

                Thanks for your fine analysis. I have not realises all those
                details and "stategies" behind the Teletubbies. My own sons
                were "too old", when the teletubbies began. And they didn't watch
                much TV, when they were under seven years.

                About the Sampo, the three sided Mill of the Kalevala: This is quite
                large and interesting topic. I will write later some points about
                the Sampo.(A little warning: I easily get carried away
                to "sidetopics", but that's no news to this forum!)

                When Parsifal opera was performed in my home town, an
                anthroposophist and opera enthusiastic wrote an introduction to the
                boklet, which explained the backgrounds of Grail and Parsifal. (The
                booklet was sold in the opera along the libretto.) In one sentence
                there was something like this: "Grail can also be seen as a mill,
                and then it has according to Wolfram vo Eschenbach, roots in the
                same way as the Sampo has."

                Warm Regards
                Joksu

                  The above location gave an opening hint of imaginations that have to
                  do with Faust and temptations to sell our soul, sell the world, sell
                  ecology and sell humanity for fun and profit. These ideas are still
                  richly if not humorously compared in culture and as students of
                  Spiritual Science we need to understand that what you pick-up and
                  study as Spiritual Science is not so obscure, is not distant, it is
                  the clear background of great classic and gigantic human Imaginations
                  that are floating below the surface of human consciousness.

                  The Intellectual Soul paradigm we live in does not always use these
                  giant Classic Imaginations so one doesn't always understand that
                  Spiritual Science runs on a deep and current and rich vein of true
                  thinking. Thinking that shapes cosmic and human insights. But we can
                  easly be disappointed with the insights and fragments that thinking
                  grasps at, because they appear not to have enough if any resonating
                  depth.

                  Yet, we find ourselves, as students of Spiritual Science appearing as
                  if we were the ones who are obscure and that nobody could understand
                  us. The Gods see the whole thing differently. Everything that Steiner
                  gave, the Gods can understand, it is human thinking that remains
                  stubborn, knotted and obscure.

                  Steve Talbott and his hesitant approach to the thinking of Inflation
                  and Reductionism is exactly what is Goethean and advanced out of
                  Spiritual Science. It was not the least bit obscure or unfair to
                  understand the psychology of what people are thinking and why. We
                  need to know that we are really thinking in the true stream of
                  Intelligence when we can translate science, religious and artistic
                  observations of culture into what is really meant...and not merely
                  the fragments that attempt to half-heartedly shape some obsure
                  thought. Why shouldn't our human thinking translate their intentions
                  so that the Gods can live in their thinking instead of distorted
                  fragments?

                  If we do this labor we restore living flows of thought between heaven
                  and earth. We take semi-obscure ideas and connect it to the flow of
                  real ideas and act as a social support to others who are striving.
                  That may not understand us, but we must be able to understand what
                  they mean.

                  The above location reveals, for those who have no idea what I am
                  talking about, a complete outline of the Agenda portrayed as Lucifer
                  and connected to the song made by Mick Jagger and company in 1968
                  called Sympathy for the Devil. Now this amounts to really
                  understanding what the writer is connecting even though he might not
                  even know what he is really saying. Yet, those with the finely tuned
                  Intellectual Soul say these things well and can outline the agenda of
                  Beings even if they refuse or cannot take these Beings seriously.

                  The writer of the above article is connecting a feeling that
                  something strange that has to do with a Faust kind of cosmic Being
                  that has been alive since before Christ and even was involved with
                  Christ in the Temptations of the desert and the killing of the Knight
                  Templars etc.. This mighty classic vision we understand as the
                  workings of mighty cosmic forces in the Human Soul of concrete
                  indications of Luciferic and Ahrimanic Beings cannot fully be
                  fathomed except by taking a poet, well known song, accepted, not
                  really obscure, except that Jagger's lyrics and song was profound.
                  That is all that they really understand, except that the intellect is
                  rich with concrete Agendas that allow us in the Michael School to see
                  even more clearly.

                  Once again, little details like Jagger, Sympathy for the Devil and
                  the name "can'tyouguessmyname" is a code to allow culture to connect
                  to a vast background Imagination. It may even be an attempt to awaken
                  the juice that lived in those of us who have lived through the
                  sixties the 1960's and who have forgotten the great ideals that moved
                  us at the time. If you are young, or new to Spiritual Science or have
                  imagined that Anthros must deny the culture they live in..or have
                  never bothered to grasp the lyrics in Sympathy for the Devil, it is
                  time for you to do so and then see the connections we have been
                  making to Luciferic and Ahrimanic Agendas along the lines Steiner
                  indicated. Perhaps you are new and not understanding the wide role of
                  observations that make up the foundations of the Michael School.

                  http://www.lewrockwell.com/wallace/wallace134.html

                  The location above locates and gives indications of what has been
                  discussed regarding the transformation of Mars through the efforts of
                  Buddha and St. Francis. David Spangler (not to be confused with
                  Oswald Spengler) gave the most important insights into American
                  SuperPower Initation, which we have been tracking on this site, via
                  the experience of Mars. David Spangler is an important spirit we need
                  to watch. He is thinking with the Time Spirit. The above article
                  raises again the spectre of Mars, but it is fragmented, it doesn't
                  have the depth and understanding we have gained from our research
                  here. It doesn't come near the depth that David Spangler gave. The
                  problem with development is that you must be able to measure
                  different depths and celebrate both the Intellectual Soul and
                  insights that lead to Spirit Self, Life Spirit and Spirit Man.

                  Here in the Mars research we understand that in the development from
                  ATlantis, electricity, Volta, nerve and brain activity developed out
                  of Atlantis and the the strengthening of the blood bound human being,
                  up to the Christ Event- was dominated by Mars forces. War Forces, and
                  lower Ego forces. Mars will come the closest it has been to Earth in
                  70,000 years by August of this year. This has stirred every inner
                  aspect of War and themes that tend to Iraq and the U.N. and forced us
                  to think out the difference between the current American Initation as
                  a SuperPower, compared to the image of the new Mercurial invested
                  humanity that is inspired by the transformation that took place on
                  Mars or in the Mars Devachan in 1604.

                  Our in depth penetration into Mars revealed that Jesus had indeed
                  been interwoven with Buddha and Zarathustra. That a pupil of Buddha,
                  long ago, became St. Francis and experienced an accelerated
                  Initiation to join Buddha as he transformed the Mars forces of the
                  human soul. This led us to the understanding of Non-violent protest
                  and a great deal of research on Mars and Buddha as the much
                  misunderstood transition of Mars evolution in Earth history to
                  Mercury evoltuion in Earth history is really what we are considering
                  now as a massive cultural paradigm.

                  Now all three of these tiny fragmented indications as well as all
                  that Steve Talbott does on his NetFuture reveals the depth of
                  Steiner's research and the high confidence you can have in
                  understanding how the depth of human thinking connects itself into
                  the firm foundations that are the core of Spiritual Science and the
                  Michael School. Otherwise you may imagine that Spiritual Science is
                  off track. It is not. It is the fragmented thinking of humanity
                  everywhere that needs to find a depth which they are afraid to find,
                  for they imagine that learning about Spiritual Science will make you
                  obscure and not be well loved by those who are bound to think
                  fragments and illusions and unable to hold onto the threads of the
                  great Classical substance of both Angels and Humanity. Until one gets
                  ones footing, it so appears and our job is to make sure that daily
                  and profound thinking efforts are connected to the rich sources and
                  well springs of the human spirit.

                    Bradford comments;

                    A Waldorf parent where I taught, brought her fifth grader over to the
                    house to view Tolkien's "Two Towers". I always enjoy the ride. But
                    recently someone wrote to me and asked about Rawlings and the Harry
                    Potter craze. I commented that both "Lord of the Rings" and "Harry
                    Potter" is a craving hunger left over from a mere two hundred years
                    ago, when peasant wisdom, and Grimm's Fairy Tales was woven with
                    ancient mighty Rosicrucian Folk Wisdom.

                    In other words, the ancient Folk Wisdom, from "Fairy Tale, A True
                    Story" and Walt Disney, has been removed from doctors who knew about
                    plants and old wives tales that are laced with wisdom, have all been
                    removed and replaced by other concepts. In this hunger gap, the
                    ancient understandings of how Elemental Beings integrated into our
                    lives has been hijacked and waves upon waves of youth are hungering
                    for the missing factor of just how matter and the elemental worlds
                    are truly still part of the magic of Mankind.

                    I watched again, how Gandalf descended with a mighty Earth core Fire
                    Spirit, Barlog, and by going down to the center of the destructive
                    core of the Earth, where the Ego conquers the destructive Fire Core
                    of Immortality, Gandalf arose with an indication of 9 Levels of the
                    Inner Earth, mystery of Resurrection... This can be seen in the
                    Initiaton of Gandalf and confirmed by Spiritual Science and Earth
                    Core mysteries.

                    But for adults, we need to review the validity of one of our Michael
                    School Researchers, who poses some curious questions about the
                    infection of Materialistic Science and infection and battle for the
                    elemental servants who could be enlisted to serve mankind.
                    Starbirgarden and others might know more about this than I, even
                    though I have never supported UFO diversions... What I have interest
                    in is how certain forces have been turned into their ugly opposite,
                    as in the example that the Elves were tortured to become Orcs. This
                    is very, very alive and interesting if you compare the notes of
                    Niclaas de Jong.

                    http://www.bruisvat.nl/english/ufo2.htm

                    "...they are not the extra-terrestrials or the outer cosmic-beings
                    like they wants us to believe and pretend to be (they might have a
                    connection with this or that star, but everything on earth has that,
                    so that's nothing to worship them for). They are elemental beings
                    (gnomes, nimphs, elves, fairy beings) which are condensed too far,
                    aware of their own implosion and therefore eagerly looking for
                    compensation through the life- and organ forces of humans. For their
                    inward nourishment they try to serve themselves with the qualities of
                    our souls, because they themselves have hardly developed those (these
                    developed qualities also stand for portals to spiritual knowledge);
                    therefore also e.g. their sclerotic insectoid appearance. Their
                    ultimate goal is to create their own dominion, a planet, built up of
                    our forces. Partly we ourselves are the cause they have turned away
                    from us and started to emancipate. Out of fear for the whimsical
                    tendency of nature we have become directed towards ourselves and use
                    (d) the thoughts of Nature (i.e. are elemental beings) in our
                    abstract materialistic techniques, causing these elemental beings to
                    fall out of the Cosmic Order and the ascending evolution. This
                    (still) gives them a high intelligence, plus a certain degree of free
                    will, but it also causes them to become cold and bitter. Their being
                    is composed of a soul-body through which they have awareness and an
                    Etheric-Life body of formative forces through which they can act. But
                    through the above described developments they do not use their soul-
                    body (which basically is composed of the forces of sympathy and
                    antipathy generating colors as gradations of feelings) in the Light-
                    ether any more as feeling, but as propulsion by means of light. Every
                    time when their vehicles propulsion starts to work it generates
                    phenomena of light, which means they have developed astral (viz.
                    soul) techniques.

                    They also have cognition about the secrets of metal, as is
                    demonstrated when parts of their suits or vehicles are crumpled up
                    and they subsequently jump back into their original form; this
                    indicates a knowledge of the formative forces of the Etheric-Life
                    World, which we haven't yet or hardly been able to master ourselves
                    (3).

                    These beings cannot be seen as pure evil, but they have to do with
                    ourselves. They have become pieces of knocked loose technique with
                    their own intelligence and a resolvedness of direction. They seem to
                    lack a soul and initially resist and oppose us. Their focus is on
                    attempting to condense themselves more and more in a physical form
                    out of our Etheric-Life forces, whereby their relative freedom and
                    own will is used and directed by higher spirits who work behind them
                    (4). Thus, we will have to start something with them, will they be
                    able to fit in the whole purpose of Earth-development. This means
                    we'll have to connect with them in a more conscious manner and try to
                    come to cooperation (again), through which we can point them out to
                    something more worthwhile than a struck loose planet of their own. By
                    doing so we eventually can help to create out of them the germs for
                    new human beings, with whom we ourselves are able to instigate and
                    guide a new Cosmic development (5). This would take place on the
                    stage of the Vulcan-Earth (6). If they are really willing to go for a
                    soul development and will try to condense therein the Spiritual Self
                    (the I), they will be able to form the consciousness of these human
                    seeds, which will be the basis of later higher spiritual faculties.
                    If this will not work, viz. they will only want to make a planet of
                    their own, then they will really harden and become rigid, and will
                    thus drag along a part of humanity which is incapable of overcoming
                    that/them(7).

                    Out of this point of view I now want to go deeper into their being.
                    Roughly the next 4 categories have been observed and described (and
                    as it is hardly possible to see them physically, seen they appear in
                    a twilight zone of sleeping and waking, you may safely say the
                    observations are coloured by the souls of the ones who observe them;
                    their features are moreover characterizations than complete
                    observations): the small and tall greys, the lizards or reptilians,
                    the beings from Mars and the praying mantis (locust) (8) . With these
                    four there is a connection with four basic forces, viz. electricity,
                    (electro-)magnetism, gravity and the nuclear forces (VanderWaals-
                    forces), the latter between the innermost ties of matter which
                    science refers to as atoms (9). Each and every one of these
                    subterranean forces cohere with one of the 9 inner-earth layers, all
                    being a contra-reflection of the 9 higher hierarchies of angels (4).

                    Electricity is fallen/materialized light and occurs in one another
                    attracting opposite or repulsive similar charges. This is a
                    reflection of the World of the Soul, basically existing of the forces
                    of sympathy and antipathy; in the Etheric-Life World this is
                    reflected as Light-Ether. Electricity was (re)discovered by Galvani
                    in 1785, a year after the discovery of Uranus, which itself
                    specifically coheres with our Spirit Self (Manas) forces - generating
                    the ability for us to develop the faculty of Clair-voyancy (2nd step
                    of Goethean Science) – built up on our soul-body. When you look at
                    the greys you see they mainly communicate with the transfer of the
                    consciousness of thoughts, by paralyzing the will of humans and
                    dimming the human self-consciousness in the soul-body. This enables
                    them to subsequently steel Life-forces by puncturing the organs and
                    the genitals. The being who these effects in the Soul-Astral World
                    originate from is Lucifer (the Biblical Diabolos), who has provided
                    us with discernment and egoism in our soul-body (this may sound weird
                    regarding possible conventional spiritual views, but lets say
                    everything has two sides and it depends from what level you look at
                    phenomena). The outward appearance of the greys is tightened and
                    stony, soulless, with big expressionless eyes. Their propulsion in
                    machines is accompanied by light- and color phenomena. This indicates
                    more they have mastered the astral qualities in an outward way than
                    inwardly (10). With intervals and sounds one can fill one's soul,
                    which can enable them to let them come along by this purposeful
                    filled sound.

                    (Electro-)magnetism characterizes itself by electric charges that
                    move spirally; the movement then is an effect stemming from the
                    Etheric-Life World and expressing itself in the Sound- or Chemical
                    Ether. The Vegetable World is very sensitive for this. In the 19th
                    Century this force was discovered (by Maxwell) and it coheres with
                    the discovery of the planet Neptune in 1846. Neptune generates the
                    forces of the so-called Life Spirit (Buddhi), which enables the
                    development of the faculty of Inspiration, viz. Clair-feeling/Clair-
                    sentiency in other beings and processes of Life (the 3rd step of
                    Goethean Science; Clair-audiency is a faculty that can go hand in
                    hand with it). Electromagnetism enables a subterranean entry into the
                    Etheric-Life World, where it can be used in a manipulative manner.
                    Simultaneously there were oil-drillings in the year of its discovery,
                    setting free the latent astral dragon-reptilian-dinosaur forces (11).
                    Mainly Ahriman (12) works in this realm. He is the `genius' who is
                    focused on directing the forces of the Etheric-Life World on his own
                    earthly Kingdom, and chaining the human being into his reign over
                    that Kingdom. That's why he's focused on condensing the fallen
                    elemental beings more and more out of our Etheric-Life-forces (i.e.
                    the organ-forces) and make them more powerful, more physical, which
                    thus eventually makes us subordinate to intelligent machines.
                    Therefore he sends along with every incarnating human being a being
                    that is called the Etheric Double(13). Curing them and trying to
                    integrate these reptilians into an ascending spiritual development is
                    possible through sounds and rhythms that are filled with our soul-
                    substance. Those sounds and rhythms can be built up out of effects of
                    the stars and planets. The Etheric-Life World consists of these two
                    ingredients or workings, and by de-mechanization of e.g. moving TV-
                    images and video-clips this can be directed again on a purposeful
                    development of humanity and the world in which these reptilians can
                    move along (and probably are not able to do otherwise).

                    Gravity is something to which we have to generate an opposing force,
                    viz. that of the erection out of our will. When our will is blocked,
                    e.g. by an illness, we are only able to lie down and are at the mercy
                    of heaviness. Gravity is a force that presses all beings and people
                    on earth, so that they can come to a development and will not
                    prematurely `fly away'. This force has a subterranean antipole, viz
                    nuclear power. This is the potential will residing in matter that can
                    generate disintegration and also contains the possible power to
                    dissolve the earth (viz. enabling transformation and sublimation) in
                    a far future.

                    Since the beginning of the 20th century (discovered by the Curie-
                    couple) this force has come into the human consciousness and was also
                    made available and applicable in the 1930's and 40's (atomic bomb).
                    It more or less coincides with the discovery of Pluto in 1930, which
                    planet is the basis for the Spirit Man forces, viz. the creative
                    forces which will become available to the human being when s/he
                    transforms her/his physical body through her/his spirit (the 4th step
                    of Goethean Science) – her/his I or Higher Self out of the ideals
                    which reside in the so-called phantom body (14). We work with our
                    will through our warmth-organization, the `point of impact' of our
                    spirit. In the Etheric-Life World this forms the Warmth-ether (this
                    is something else than what is often defined as and quantified in
                    energy).

                    This connection with the will strongly makes you think of the E.T.'s,
                    which call themselves beings from Mars (Mars is the planet of the
                    force of the will, i.e. bringing forth the processes of the gal in
                    our being - the force of taking initiative). These beings assert a
                    catastrophy has happened on their planet, after which a part of them
                    came to Earth and is waiting for a non-violent acceptance by
                    humanity. They take little initiative, look `tanned' and hardened
                    (like in the movies `E.T.' and `My uncle from Mars') but are equipped
                    with an inexhaustible will-power. Most probably are they elemental
                    beings which have loosened from human beings and which cohere with
                    the techniques we have realized on Earth with the forces of Mars. But
                    this technique is not furnished with the spiritual touch of our
                    Higher Self or with our soul-substance. Our propulsion-techniques
                    (car, plane, rocket) are characterized by impersonalized forces of
                    the will, as an extension of our will, so everybody can operate them.
                    In its turn destructions and explosions are caused by it.
                    Redeeming and reintegrating them in an ascending evolutionary
                    development is possible by developing a `moral technique' consisting
                    of our own skills, having an inward accent and direction, in stead of
                    purely outer techniques. By the way the greys also strongly use
                    paralysis of the will-power of humans.

                    VanderWaals or nuclear forces keep matter together, they are
                    contracting forces and they need to be discerned from atomic forces
                    which in its turn generate the tendency to dissolve. The ultimate
                    feature of matter is form, in which all beings and phenomena express
                    themselves. Form is condensed spirit, eventually an outworking of
                    what lives in the stars as the thoughts of the Gods and the Divine
                    Plan of Creation. In Christ this Cosmic Word has become `flesh'/form
                    (16). When matter falls apart, it crumbles into meaninglessness. The
                    cohering forces in the Etheric-Life World are of the highest so far
                    manifested order, and can be called those of the Form-Ether or `Ether
                    of Purpose' (one of its qualities is that it maintains life in its
                    form). When looking at the `locusts' we are struck by its outspoken
                    figure: a skeleton on the outside which has hardened in its form as
                    an Armour. These are mostly the leaders of the other UFO's, although
                    they operate more in the background. They are beings of darkness
                    expelled from the sun, called Asura's. Their combined intelligence is
                    indicated by the name `Sorat', the being who aims to splice off
                    peaces of the Self (16). By obscuring the purpose of Humanity they
                    can try to splice the Self of humans, which actually is a oneness,
                    and to use these `pieces of the Self' (viz. being warmth-
                    organization) to use it for the incorporation of an Asura being in a
                    human body. This sometimes already happens, recognizable by the empty
                    dark eyes of some people who mostly radiate a glowing hatred (which
                    itself is undirected, unpurified dark warmth).

                    Transforming them is possible by the following. By his crucifixion in
                    the Etheric-Life World (17) Christ has been able to let new elemental
                    beings flow into the Etheric-Life World with the qualities of Love
                    and Freedom, which we can thus use to furnish these beings again with
                    seeds of development and growth, and if possible to transform them in
                    a process of development for the good. We then need to bring them in
                    a subordination to Humanity. Out of (our) wisdom and warmth we can
                    try to offer them seeds of a freedom of their own, so they can
                    clarify, transform and enlighten their undifferentiated `hate-
                    warmth' – although this is going to be a very slow process of gaining
                    awareness. It's also not possible to realize this completely before
                    Christ has `conquered' the 9th inner layer of the Earth (18), where a
                    fallen Seraphim (`previous' Angel of Love) brings about hate and
                    black magic (19). "
