Tiny men, created by celestial bodies

“We are made of numerous tiny men. Our big human is just a centralization of plenty of small men.

The next thing i will show you is, that inside of the eye there also is a tiny man. The nose also is a tiny man. And these tiny men are held together by the nervous system and form the complete man.

And all those tiny humans are created while man is still in a seminal state in the mothers body, by the influence of the celestial bodies.” (Rudolf Steiner)

The flying cars of Atlantis

“The Atlanteans had appliances which they would – so to speak – heat with plant seed, and inside of them the life force would turn into technical force.

Thats how their floating vehicles were propelled. These vehicles travelled at a height lower than that of the mountain ranges of the Atlantean period, and they had steering mechanisms by the aid of which they could rise above these mountain ranges.” (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)
