"Wagner, who wanted to prepare the soil for a new mental impulse by
its artistic work, was surely the central shape under the "homeless
souls". In the year 1851, when he worked on the draft ' Ring of the
Nibelungen ', he hoped still that South Germany could become center
of a new Mysterienkultur:
"at the Rheine I break then a theatre open, and invite to large
dramatic celebrations: after one year preparation I specify my whole
work then in the course of four days. With him I give humans to the
revolution then the meaning of this revolution to recognize after its
noblest sense. This public will understand me; the current cannot do
These "homeless souls" with their often tragic fates lived in the
expectation of something large one, which could not become on earth
reality at that time... At the beginning of of 1833 drove the
20(year old) Richard Wagner from peppering castle to
Bamberg; it heard its fate, heard of by nine months the older (nine
months older than Wagner) Kaspar Hauser, on peculiar way deeply moved
(Kaspar was murdered in the December of the same year 1833.)
Kaspar Hauser later even imagined itself as "the child of Europe" on
this journey to have seen. Something of the shape Kaspars flowed
anyhow into Wagners conception of the parent less Parsifal, "pure
gates",searching for Nut/ the mother.
This strange fate led Wagner 1857 to Karlsruhe, where the 45 (the 45
year old Kaspar Hauser would have been the one to meet Wagner)
Kaspar could have received Wagner as a Grand Duke. Now however it was
Grand Duchess Luise of Prussia, who required to review Wagner's
works. The plan was discussed, ' Tristan and Isolde ' in
Karlsruhe, "at the Rheine" to be specific. Here also Wagner's
fruitful co-operation began with the extraordinary tenor Ludwig
Schnorr of Carolsfeld. But the fate remained unfulfilled. Wagner
unsatisfied left the city 1862, by two years later in Ludwig II.,
the cousin of Kasparto find its largest sponsor. "
But had Wagner and Kaspar Hauser got together and had culture been
warmed by the idealism of Goethe and the classic vision of Wagner
the derailed disaster of WWI might have been defused. But would
humanity have begun the difficult climb upwards to encounter not
only the mystery of the Christ Being and human Karma and
Reincarnation but also the facts that the I Am is surrounded by
Beings that we, as humans, must learn to grasp as to what hypocrisy
really is? We left Nietzsche standing alone with spider venom of
hypocrisy infecting his very soul to the core. We have never
understood that a vast Michael Event had happened on the otherside
of the Threshold and thereby the incarnation coming and the world of
the dead were bringing whole new ideals. Because of many
catastrophic events all former thought forms were forced to
rediscover the I Am as a Fact not a theory. This remains humanities
prime issue and failure. We continue to think that our brain is the
source of our I Am. That clever thinking is good I Am juice. That we
dispose of this body and destiny and disappear into christian or a
dark void of hypocrisy. Here it still stands, failed and unlearned
and remaining the crown lie of higher education taught to our

I an AT message dated Tuesday, 05 Oct 2004, Eric told the following story
about the Goethanum and Anthroposophy Tomorrow:
"No wonder when I called the Goetheanum office ten minutes ago and after
being handed around twice, someone told me this list is considered by
Anthroposophists to be one for "crackpots" ! "
Thank you for letting us know what attracts you to this group. It takes one
to know one, obviously. But are you sure they didn't call *you* a crackpot
after handing you around twice as you say, and that you imagined they were
talking about someone else?
Gisele, didn't you visit the Goethanum right after that post was made and
expose the ramblings of this space cadet?
~~~~Yeah, I felt almost embarrassed by the looks they gave me like:"What is she on about?" - they had no idea of what Eric was talking about, never heard of this list either...
