Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

For what it's worth, here are the links that Eugene felt were so important to bring to everyone's attention, assuming they have not been informed of similar opinions before. After I decided to leave the forum I felt that people sympathising with anthroposophy should also be informed about its racis...

Re: Vote of confidence?

Likewise, anyone who can't get past Steiner's views on the origins of the races, for whom it overshadows or taints all the other ideas, rendering them moot, probably aren't going to be otherwise convinced. Nonetheless, whoever feels inclined to go round and round in this circle yet again, seemingly...

Re: Vote of confidence?

In my new topic I gave links to two academic papers exposing and discussing Steiner's racist views, and then noted that if anyone wishes to subscribe to anthroposophy and believes that Steiner indeed had clairvoyant abilities, then they would have to subscribe to his racist views. But if one wants ...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

It is the task of evolution that we unfold this Cosmic structure. If evolution is unfolding, where does the "original" foldedness come from? it all "started" with a folded mess? Or are we talking about a more local context such as in "we created this folded mess ourselves b...

Re: New Bigelow Prize Competition!

S wirling bodilessly in the spiritual void were the ten lords and ladies of existence. These were the proto-beings known as Lord Time (sometimes incorrectly called Time Lord), Lady Space, Lord Energy, Lady Matter, Lady Gravity, Lord Willing, Lady Perceiving, Lady Feeling, Lord Sensation and Lord Th...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

No. I, like Marx, Hegel and Berdyaev, admit that all thinking is socially conditioned, whilst Steinerians do not admit this. OK, I see. There's no doubt that thinking is socially conditioned but to say that for all thinking is a very strong claim. Indeed, how can the Thinking of transpersonal Mind,...

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: What we Learned from JW's Monism

You've answered your own question. Steinerians do not look to their own Thinking, but to the pre-conceived map provided by Steiner. Justin, this is simply not serious. In the same way I can say that you don't think for yourself but simply reiterate the map provided by Marx. Isn't it clear that chea...

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 no...
