No need to drag in fellows standing behind....
This discussion is about asking your second opinion on your earlier

It looks like you are keeping this point of view. Fair enough. You
stand to what you experience yourself. It is the right thing to do.
But from your way to put it, I get the impression you believe there
is such a thing like "this is what Steiner wrote". I prefer to
say "this is what I read". Words cannot grasp concepts. They can
only make one aware of having those wordless concepts. There is no
content of importance in the PoF which lies *in* the words, there is
no information to argue about. It is *through* the words the
wordless experience they point at is to be found for oneselve. That
goes for his "non-philosophical" books as well. If one "find
something" and "how much" is up to the reader. What is the point of
limiting this possible experience to ones own level, Dr Starman?
What makes it an "obvious error"??
