Re: Moltke "initiated" WWI ?
Containing a wealth of crucial material on a variety of subjects,
Light for the New Millennium is much more than a collection of
previously unpublished letters and documents. It deals with themes
which are of tremendous significance for our time, including: the
end of the century and the new millennium; the future of Rudolf
Steiner's science of the spirit; karma and reincarnation; life after
death; the workings of evil; the destiny of Europe; and the hidden
causes of the First World War. It also tells the story of the
meeting of two great men and their continuing relationship beyond
death: Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) - seer, scientist of the spirit,
cultural innovator - and Helmuth von Moltke (1848-1916), Chief of
the General Staff of the German army during the outbreak of the
First World War. Helmuth von Moltke first came into contact with
Rudolf Steiner through his wife Eliza, who was one of his esoteric
In 1914, following disagreements with the Kaiser, Moltke was
dismissed from his post. At this point Steiner's connection to the
General - which included personal meetings as well as written
communications - grew stronger. Although Moltke died two years
later, Rudolf Sterner kept in contact with his excarnated soul
through clairvoyant means, and began to receive communications which
were passed on to Eliza von Moltke. These messages - of supreme
importance to the present - are reproduced here in full, together
with relevant letters from the General to his wife, and
the 'document that could have changed world history' - Moltke's
private reflections on the causes of the War which Rudolf Steiner
was prevented from publishing. Also included are a key interview
with Rudolf Steiner for Le Matin and commentaries and essays by
Jürgen von Grove, Jens Heisterkamp, Johannes Tautz and an
introduction and notes by T. H. Meyer.

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...
