2585Re: [steiner] Biotech Question
- Jan 29, 2004Dear George,
It is my understanding Steiner said at least on one occasion that man would learn to create life sooner or later in an unconventional way. I apologize for not being able to pinpoint the actual source or methodology hinted intended. Regarding the field of genetics, the work of David Heaf, Anthroposophical geneticist, is outstanding and you may wish to look at his web site: http://www.anth.org/ifgene/2002.htm as well as the links included therein.

I am wondering if anyone is familiar with anything
Rudolf Steiner might have said or written regarding
today's advances in biotechnology. It is fascinating
that scientists are learning to rearrange DNA and cell
structures in a way that we may realize in the not too
distant future great advances in engineering the
mechanics of life and create living machines. In
addition to the bizarre idea of growing headless
clones for organ farming, it seems the day will come
when we might be able to develop a strain of tree that
grows itself into the shape of a table, or a chair, or
even the structure of a house.
It is my understanding that Steiner wrote of a time
when the human ability to affect life forces was such
that humans were able to direct the growth of plants.
It is my understanding that abuses of these forces led
to the Atlantean flood.
Thank you for your help.
