I have been reading this lecture that steiner gave on ‘occult science.’ How the heck can our minister of education justify her stand on the accountability of steiner schools in Aotearoa NZ when state schools must be transparent and accountable?
This is an indication of how anthroposophical
teachingindoctrination will bridge the gulf between the so-called living and the so-called dead; and already now we can see how human beings who have some understanding of the spiritualoccult may be a blessing to the so-called dead by reading to them in thought the truthsinventions of Spiritual Science. If, either reading aloud or to ourselves, we follow in thought the ideas and conceptsinventions of Spiritual Science, at the same time feeling that one or more who have passed through death are there in front of us while we read, then this reading becomes very real to them, because such thoughts are inscribed into the Akasha-substance. Such reading may be of the greatest service, not only to those on the other side of death who while they were on earth concerned themselves with Spiritual Science, buffoonery but also to those who during their earthly life would have nothing to do with it.
Living in ahrimanic times From Wellspring
Heads firmly in the sand, blocking themselves off from the rest of the world, telling themselves how informed and full of love they are. In reality, they are a frightened, paranoid, judgemental, unforgiving, secretive, ignorant, racist, idiotic bunch of looney toons who believe in planet nibura (x) and the moon man. Everything, from education to science to spirituality is seriously misinformed and basically incorrect. How anyone in the 21st century could fall for this cult is a real surprise to me. Sadly, I guess there’s something in the eurocentric aryan mindset that just won’t let them be.
racism, also called racialism , any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview—the ideology that humans are divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races,” that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural behavioral features, and that some races are innately superior to others.
Aryan (in Aryan (people)) In Europe the notion of white racial superiority emerged in the 1850s, propagated most assiduously by the comte de Gobineau and later by his disciple Houston Stewart Chamberlain, who first used the term “Aryan” for the white race. Members of this so-called race spoke Indo-European languages, were credited with all the progress that benefited humanity, and were purported to be…
Superiority of the Aryans Vol I, chapter 16, the final chapter of that volume, carries the long superscript “Récapitulation; caractères respectifs des trois grandes races; effects sociaux des mélanges; supérorité du type blanc et, dans ce type, de la famille ariane”, or, in English, “Recapitulation; respective characters of the three great races; social effects of [racial] mixtures; superiority of the white type and, within that type, of the Aryan family”. Gobineau claims that there have been no more than ten great civilizations, and that they have all been started by the white race. These civilizations are: The Indian civilization – built around a branch of the Aryans. The Egyptian civilization – founded by an Aryan colony from India. The Assyrians – to which are attached other civilizations such as the Jewish and the Phoenician. According to Gobineau, these are Hamites and Semites. Gobineau places the Iranian civilizations here, but claims that they are Aryans. The Greeks – originally Aryans, but with Semitic elements. The Chinese civilization – like the Egyptian founded by an Aryan colony from India. The old civilization of the Italian Peninsula – became a mosaic of Celts, Iberians, Aryans, and Semites. The Germanic races transformed in the 5th century the western spirit – they were Aryans. The Alleghanian civilizations in America. The Mexican civilizations in America. The Peruvian civilization in America. In Vol VI, chapter 7, “Les indigènes américans” (“The native Americans”), Gobineau discusses the racial status of the native Americans and ends up suggesting that at least the royal families of the three American civilization groups mentioned above (8.-10.) were white, even Aryans of Scandinavian origin.
Comment: When I went to Christchurch rudolf steiner for the first time, I remember commenting to my wife, that the atmosphere was really strange in the school. One of my observations was, that it felt segregated. There were very few people of colour. Everything was german/eurocentric/and there was a veil of secrecy and superiority. That was on my very first visit. I knew nothing, but felt everything.
A photocopy of p. 51, VOM LEBEN DES MENSCHEN UND DER ERDE, showing Steiner’s description of three human races. Blacks (Schwarz) [that’s me, I’m out of Africa and I haven’t become copper-red either] are characterized by the rear brain (Hinterhirn), and they live primarily through their drives or urges [that’s good to know about myself. I thought I was thinking, hence this blog] (Triebleben). If they leave their proper place on Earth (i.e., Africa), they may become copper-red (Kupferrot) and die out. [we’re still alive] “Yellows” (Gelb, i.e., Asians) are characterized by the middle brain (Mittelhirn), and they live mainly in their emotions [hitler seemed to live through his emotions. He was an aryan too](Gefühlsleben). If they leave Asia, they may become brown (Braun) and die out. [lots of asians here, we have some in our family. yet to turn brown and die] Whites (Weiss) are characterized by the forebrain (Vorderhirn), and they place emphasis on thinking [yep, thought their way to Auschwitz and Treblinka, so advanced] (Denkleben). They are pretty much free to go where they please. [not in this world, without keeping their mouths shut] Some of the other material on the page is also interesting. For instance, “The black man is an egotist [seems to me that it was ‘steiner’ who was an egotist. Most anthropops I have met fit the bill most clearly](Der Schwarze is ein Egoist) who absorbs all light and warmth (der nimmt Licht und alle Wärme auf).” Steiner explains that the dark skin of “Schwarzes” drinks in sunlight, which is why Negroes are overheated internally [he was serious?]. Anthroposophists rarely translate this material into English or discuss it outside their private gatherings.
This ugly little statement about anyone not anthroposophic being undiscerning sits at the fundamental weakness of their argument. Anyone who says there way or no way has to be suspect. Thanks to Waldorf Watch for watching.
“The problem then is how does an Anthroposophist differentiate his/her spirituality from all the fundies out there? To the undiscerning mind, and Anthroposophist may be no different to a Scientologist for example – they both talk about spirit and use the word science in their creedo.”
I actually know people in 21st century Aotearoa NZ who believe this stuff. You’d have to wonder how they got that way with all the peer reviewed science around them. I know that science can indeed discover more and redefine what it knows, but this is just over the top. One may as well believe in gnomes and such, at least it would be somewhat consistent. This stuff is the reason Kiwi parents should be educated in their choices. Otherwise this rubbish will be passed on and on through the generations to come.
“[Science] sees the heart as a pump that pumps blood through the body. Now there is nothing more absurd than believing this….” — Rudolf Steiner, PSYCHOANALYSIS AND SPIRITUAL PSYCHOLOGY (Rudolf Steiner Press, 1990), p. 126. • “[T]he heart is indeed a sense organ for perceiving the blood’s movement, not a pump as physicists [sic] claim; the coursing of blood is brought about by our spirituality and vitality.” — Rudolf Steiner, AT HOME IN THE UNIVERSE (SteinerBooks, 2000), p. 84.
