Re: Criticism

Eugene, I understand your concerns. Let's just mention that PoF (and later SS) do not rely on foundational assumptions. Yes, your Steiner quote really is presented as philosophical statement, which can be criticized in the way you do but it shouldn't be forgotten that in PoF we start from the givens...

Re: Criticism

Yes. Totally cognitive crack. I do wonder, since they haven't been around for long in our perceptual world, what kind of effect they have had on our situation since their introduction. Then again; They have been available to discover in Nature for a long time. I would say at this time fractals work...

Re: Criticism

Does this ocean of living meaning have Structure? Because if it does, I have a hard time envisoning this structure without it bringing (due to the Nature of Structure) various modes of dualities. (Or maybe Polarities is a better word) But then again, maybe my question is of the same nature as "...

Re: Criticism

My question is: can we actually study and practice the PoF in a healthy way without being harassed for critical and sober approach, for questioning the assumptions and without being forced to adopt a system unquestionable beliefs? Can we practice Anthroposophy without forming a sect around it? The ...

Some of the representations of the ideas that contribute to a pencil (making it what it really ...
