Mercury’s powers bubbling in the ethiopian gland system

“Everything that awards those special features to the ethiopian race, orginates in Mercury´s powers boiling and bubbling in the gland system of those people.

That results from them giving off, what makes the similar, common human shape become the special one of the ethiopian race, with the black colored skin, wooly hair and so on.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Blacks suck up light and warmth from space

“Those blacks in africa have the nature to suck up all the light and wamth from space. They consume that. And that light and that warmth in space can not pass through the whole body, because man always is man, even when he is black.

It does not pass through the whole body, but stays on the surface of the skin, and then the skin itself turns black.” (Rudolf Steiner)
