Kidneys from Jupiter

“In reference of what is evolving in the mothers body, people are so stupid as to say: That is caused by fertilization.

When my lung is built, the head received the power to build the lungs from outer space. Specially when the kidneys are built, man received powers from outer space, from Jupiter for example.

Well, these are not fantastic ideas.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Animals are discharged humans

“In the beginning of Atlantis, the human shape was ape-like. This body then has evolved. But the ape-like figures partly fell into decadence, and became todays monkeys. Monkeys are therefore biological brothers of man.

So that all animals that live around us are degenerated, discharged humans.” (Rudolf Steiner)

The whites are the ones that develop humaneness

“When the Negroes emigrate to the west, they can not gather as much light and warmth as they did in africa. So they turn red as copper, become redskins. That results from being forced to reflect some of that light and warmth.

This then glows copper red. They can not resist that. This is why the redskins get extinct in the west, in turn become a race that is ceasing to exist, dying of their own nature, that is receiving too little light and warmth, dying out because of the mundane.

The whites are actually the ones that develop the humaneness inside of them.” (Rudolf Steiner)

We must tell children about Atlantis


“We show, that the british isles have risen and fallen four times. That is where we come back to the term of old Atlantis, in a geological way. That can be determined by the layers.

So we try to put these things into context, but we must not resile to tell children about the old land of Atlantis. We must not skip this.” (Rudolf Steiner)

The child needed its death underneath the moving van

“So the child was dead. The outer, materialistic view could say: Well, by accident the moving van tilted over at this hour, the child got underneath it and got squashed. From a spiritual view, this is utter nonsense.

Because what we have got here is the childs karma, and the childs karma guided every single circumstance. It also guided the moving van just in the hour, in which the child needed its death; because the childs karma wanted it this way.”(Rudolf Steiner)

Demons in human shape

“One really doesnt like to talk about these things, since we are already being treated hostile a lot. Imagine what people would say when they hear that there are humans, that are not human. But these are facts.

We wouldnt have this decadence of culture, if there was a strong sentiment for the fact that you have people walking around, that are becoming something that is not humans, but demons in human shape.

But we dont want to trumpet this. The enmity is already big enough.”(Rudolf Steiner)

777 metamorphoses

“So there are seven planets, each has seven by seven conditions, so written in hermetism, 777.

In cryptography the seven in units means globes, in tens it means rounds, in hundreds it means planets. These figures have to be multiplicated.

Therefore our planet system has to undergo 7 by 7 by 7 or 343 metamorphoses.” (Rudolf Steiner)
