Naydler is described as a philosopher, cultural historian and gardener,
living in Oxford. Barbara Clow mentioned him in her Catastrophobia.
Wrote book, "Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts:The Mystical
Tradition of Ancient Egypt"
(fr back cover - Until now,the Pyramid texts have been viewed primarily
as royal funerary texts that were used in the liturgy of the dead
pharoah or to aid him in his afterlife journey.JN argues that they are
mystical texts that speak of the experiences not of the dead but of the
living king.)He lists Steiner's Egyptian Myths in biblio.
Earlier book "Temple of the Cosmos"
(fr back cover - Temple is a profound exploration of an ancient
consciousness more in tune with the rythms of the earth, more open to
the internal dimensions of time and space, less cut off from the
secrets of life.)
Goethe book, he listed Goethean Science.
Also listed is his "How Caterpillars Acquire Wings"
No mention of his being an anthroposophist. NINA
- Dear John,There may be something for you in these treatises of Goethe quoted in The Etherisation of the Blood,A Lecture By,,Rudolf Steiner, Basle, October 1, 1911, GA 130
Question: How are the words used by St. Paul, to speak in tongues (Cor. I: 12), to be understood?
Answer: In exceptional human beings it can happen that not only is the phenomenon of speaking present in the waking state, but that something otherwise present in sleep-consciousness only, flows into this speaking. This is the phenomenon to which St. Paul refers. Goethe refers to it in the same sense; he has written two very interesting treatises on the subject.
If ever they are in English, or French I would be interested to know.

- That's awesome Franky. I was reading Acts the other night and St. Paul
talking about speaking in tongues and I was wondering about this.
I have thought speaking in the sleep-conscious takes a certain amount
of art. When I had my conscious out of body experience and walked
through my lounge window I floated to the top of the trees in my garden
flung my arms back and said 'Glory to God in the Highest'
here i noticed my voice was tiny and hardly audible and came from my
stomach rather then my voice box. I have been thinking Taurus rules
the voice and think somehow Taurus is the place of initiation for
spirit talking (maybe?).. by God's will of course.
Best regards and thanks again for those words.
