- Jun 1, 2009Hello,
Yes, this 'interlocking web' is already in place; it's like a grid stretching over the whole earth, and it is what makes spiritual perception so difficult. What science sees as electromagnetic impulses, the clairvoyant can see as a sort of demon-infested net.
See also this bit:-
"Well, the whole way in which people construct machines varies greatly according to the nature of the machine in question; but everything tends towards the gradual development of these still imperfect, primitive machines into a kind of machine which depends upon vibrations, and where the aim is to make the machines effective by means of vibrations or oscillations, by means of movements which run a periodic course. Everything is hastening towards such machines. But if once these machines in their coordinated activity could be constructed in such a way as can be learned from the distribution of foodstuffs in the organization of the cow, then the vibrations which would be conjured up on the earth-globe through the machines, these small earth-vibrations, would so run their course that what is above the earth would sound together with, vibrate together with what is happening on the earth; so that our planetary system in its movements would be compelled to vibrate with our earth-system, just as a string tuned to a certain pitch vibrates in sympathy when another one is struck in the same room.
That is the terrible law of the sounding in unison of vibrations which would be fulfilled if the alluring call of the cow would so decoy the orient that it would then be able to penetrate in an absolutely convincing way into the unspiritual, purely mechanistic civilization of the west and centre; and thereby it would become possible to conjure up on the earth a mechanistic system fitting exactly into the mechanistic system of the universe. Through this everything connected with the working of air, with the forces of the circumference, and everything connected with the working of the stars, would be exterminated from human civilization. What man experiences, for instance, through the cycle of the year, what he experiences through living together with the sprouting, budding life of spring, with the fading, dying life of autumn all this would lose its import for him. Human civilization would resound with the clattering and rattling of the vibrating machines and with the echo of this clattering and rattling which would stream down upon the earth from the cosmos as a reaction to this mechanisation of the earth."
The cosmic Beings have found it very hard to get through to humans in the last 7 years, because of this 'net' covering the earth.
Steiner saw these things a hundred years ago; they weren't 'prophecies' in the sense of forecasts which may or may not happen, they were definite stages which would come about. But because of the failure of "Plan A" for the 20th century, things have been accelerated. We have the War of All Against All (egoism) for instance, right now.
We also have more power, though. Steiner points out somewhere that Christ's incarnation had to be brought forward by several hundred years; similarly now, although we are facing things which shouldn't have happened for thousands more years, we do have the spiritual strength to cope with them. And evil doesn't last for very long; it has the seeds of its own destruction within it.
