RE: [steiner] Unique to humans
- ******* No, the higher animals, the mammals, also generate their own body
One of the great differences in Man and animal is that all animals are
born already organized to move the way they will all their lives----the
flying animals to fly, creeping ones to creep, etc. Man is born helpless,
not ready to move in any way in earthly gravity. During his first year he
orients to gravity and pulls himself upright. No animals are organized to
walk upright; some may do so occasionally for a brief period, but they are
organnized for walking horizontally, on all fours. Our upright posture marks
us as different from the animal, as well as the crucial difference that we
are not born with it but give it to ourselves AFTER birth.

the astral plane. So, all cats say "I" to the cat group-ego or "group-soul".
These are the offspring of the 2nd Hierarchy on earth.
