Re: Vote of confidence?

In my opinion you are doing excellent as the group moderator. I'm very grateful for how you deal with all the annoying little messes we serve up. Yes, he privately messaged me and I simply told him that while I see some pathological aspects of the Anthropop movement, I also see much beauty and value...

Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

You see: he can only want to shadow dance after a certain kind of disagreement. There's a tenderness there, yes?

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

Anyway, I personally don't think red causes a bull to go wild and I think there are reasons that Rudolf Steiner did believe that. I also believe that when he applied his clairvoyance to discover why red causes a bull to go wild, he honestly did perceive the dynamics he describes and those were disto...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

So we can appreciate that Steiner is very emphatic that he can explain with his clairvoyance why red is the cause for the bull's wild reactions. And he can also use his clairvoyance to assure us that white skin can not appear when the Christ Impulse is being rejected. Both are claims that all of us ...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

I've already shared the entire lecture and said way too much about what you have to do to get it sent to you (the American branch has taken it out of all lecture cycles), but despite the ways Steiner is wrong in some spots, we can still respect his specific and pointed markings of the boundaries: &q...

Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

"it means that that the whole body of spiritual science exists only as abstract thoughts." Some of us believe there is no 'body of thought' that doesn't exist as abstract thoughts. That can be debates or explored or ignored or appreciated or even more. "My question above can be change...

Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

Watch how Cleric described his experience of reading my comments. Notice how his experience is and then compare it with your own. I know many of you so I know the various ways we share understandings and the various ways we are still coming to understand different aspects of this topic. And then not...

Re: Message from BK

"Yes, that becomes problematic too for moderation, when the shadow-boxing begins, with tit-for-tat claims of "You're projecting!" answered by "You're misrepresenting!" countered with some taunt about cultish behaviour, or some other snide remark, and so on and so forth, with...

Re: Anthroposophy for Dummies

Since this is an explicit Anthroposophy thread I thought it was the right place for this inquiry: Many years ago when I was a student at Rudolf Steiner College, i remember one of the teacher trainers reading us a quote from Steiner about what can be observed when watching children knit at different ...
