      Hi, Stephen, Nice to hear from you again. It would be nicer still if I knew what the fuck you re saying. So could you please condense, edit out

        Hi, Stephen,
        Nice to hear from you again. It would be nicer still if I knew what the fuck you're saying. So could you please condense, edit out anthro-psycho-babble, and re-submit?

        Dear Frank:


        List-discussions do bring out the Double in one; you are "bingo" on
        that!  Now we could llok at our own posts as if through the eyes of
        another, what revelations could be found, what material for self-
        humbling!  And, oh, yes, I include myself.

        But note: this medium not only inflates one's own double-tendencies,
        it can also infect one with turbulent and divisive tendencies which
        one would not normally "channel." Check Steiner on the subnatural

        And: Steiner has described how certain adversarial beings, held in
        check by a combination of cosmic law and lack of personal free will,
        agitate free humans to do their dirty work for them; to act out their
        dark fantasies. Luciferic abstraction and crusading idealism can all-
        too-easily flip into its Ahrimanic opposite - if we didn't learn this
        from Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, and Lenin, not to mention whatever failed
        gurus we like to think of, well, then, what can I say.

        Men and women of good will can disgaree about all kinds of
        substantive issues - and most will be "right", according to their own
        mix of information and personal experience.  But look at _how_ these
        things are discussed...there a second level of discourse - the real
        one - is exposed!

        Beware! This dreck can be a vortex for an active emitting of exactly
        those tendencies which are inimical to the spirit of any progressive
        spirituality. To what wheel do you wish to lend your shoulder: to one
        that grinds and smashes or to one that carries everyone forward?

        Frank: you are sometimes stubborn on issues which I think are settled
        counter to your opinion ( e.g.: I think that the Official
        Explanations are frequently the biggest and least
        believable "conspiracy theories" of all; frequently their only virtue
        is a superficial simplicity; "Go back to sleep"), but I'll take a
        stubborn rationality over a credulous fanatacism any day. That kind
        of thing should be put well in check _before_ any serious spiritual
        work is undertaken.

        oh well, cheers,
