The Activity of Spiritual Beings within Technology – Lecture

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Mechanical Occultism and the Threefold Social Order

Threefoldness in esoteric streams, in social order, in the human being, in the hierarchy – but technology?The Spirits of Birth and Death seek to destroy the human weal through their activity with technology.

“Supermen of Vulcan … will unite with earth-existence. But if human beings persist in nothing but opposition to them, earth-existence will pass over into chaos in the course of the next few 1000 years.” – Rudolf Steiner, A Picture of Earth-Evolution in the Future, May 13, 1921, GA 204.

Rudolf Steiner’s words sound like transhumanism: “the welding together of Mankind with Machines will be a great and important problem for the rest of the earth-evolution.”  The Wrong and Right Use of Esoteric Knowledge, Lecture 3, Nov. 25, 1917

We will explore changes coming to our lives by threefoldness and the activity of various spiritual beings intent on manifesting change. Along with the usual suspects Ahriman and Michael, we’ll explore the role of the elementals, the spirits of birth and death, the Vulcans, and Hephaestus.  Out of true knowledge we will find counter-balances for the healthy social life.
