Format: Paperback
Rudolf Steiner goes through the evolution of humans... I could formulate it differently for Rudolf Steiner communicates in lenght about animal forms, Atlantis etc. but the main focus is how everything has evolved into the human form of today and will evolve in the future. To make the listeners (all are verbal lectures which are recorded in this book) Rodulf Steiner communicated about:
- Zodiacal Signs in relationship to development of human body
- Evolution of animal(-like) forms up to the human form
- Some about Atlantis about the state of consciousness entities had at that time and then explained how that changed through time after Atlantis period (post-Atlantis civilization) - this also linked with intitiation:
1) Indian
2) Persian
3) Egyptian-Assyrian-Babylonian-Chaldean
4) Grecian-Roman (aka Greco-Latin)
5) [American]
6) Christian

- Atlantis development and then organ forming (lungs, brains) very briefly.
- The forming of male and female bodies (throuhg Osiris and Isis influence).

What I like about this book is that Rudolf Steiner went relatively in-depth with his explanation but still stayed on the surface enough, which makes it an in-depth but still understandable book for beginners into this matter... it is not too in-depth.

Rudolf Steiner tried to explain all this by using the stories of the Egyptian Mysteries as a reference.

It is sometimes hard to imagine in our times how history can be written other than as a history of the senses. There are clues in the work of theoretical physists that our reality is not as fixed as we would like it to be, but it is hard to think these notions through, because the images are way beyond our comprehension.
Rudolf Steiner was a person who dared to do so. He had a phenomenal knowledge of Eastern and Western esoterism ànd was himself a scientist. If you dare to read this book, you will have to go against most of the things you read about human history. But this is a history not only of the human body, but also a history of his soul and spirit. He doesn't ask that you believe him, but he invites you to think with him outside the boundaries of everyday believes. It will give you a new insight into what makes us human. It will give you an insight into your Self.

Buddha was the reincarnation(vessel) of Wotan. Animals are devolutions of humankinds past evolutionary forms. Yahweh lives on the moon. The sun and moon and earth used to be one enormous body-mass. We WERE the ancient Egyptians. There once was a form of reproduction other than the physical. Socrates had telepathic teaching powers. Egyptians practiced mummification so the WE would take interest in the physical world: Natural science is born. The Argonauts were an historical reality. Ancient Atlanteans travelled outside their bodies when they slept much in the same way we do when we die. Zorostrianism will replace Christianity. Ancient Clairovoyants created the modern human-form by looking at their future selves and willing their physical bodies to morph into that. Brahman was Hercules was Christ. We, in our former evolutionary selves, used to be unisexual centaurs with glowing pancreal glands strutting out of our foreheads like lanterns which allowed us to communicate with the god-creatures who lived on the sun. And we didn't know how to breath either. There used to be four gender types. Now their are only two(male and female, duh). Homer was a clairovoyant who could see the mysterious akashic record. We evolved from sphinx's. And yes they were real. Gods incarnated in greek temples. INCARNATED. The romans were the FIRST to regard the individual as an actual THING. The Mongolians are the most direct descendents of Atlantis. The gall is the physical expression of the astral body. Whatever that means. Midday woman = Sphinx. Medicine works because we were once mineral/plant-like beings. WHHHHAAAATTTTTTTTT?!?!?!?!?!???!??!!!???!?!?! I thought this was going to be about conventional Egyptian mythology. Best read of my life! This guy is crazy and awesome and far-out and and and. I would give it one star for being too much of a load whatever its a load of( I can't tell). But its just too good.

In this book, Steiner gives a compelling and very astute description of the zodiacal signs and their relationship to the formation of the physical body. This is a book that artists, astrologers and anyone interested in the evolution of the human form will find absolutly facinating.

I have been buying this book for certain friends who are searching for more than the current world offers. Steiner in this book goes back billions of years to times when some of us were around but not in this body. He takes us through the evolution of the Human form as it is today, through Lemuria and Atlantis and he tells us of so many things that so many people cannot or will not believe.

Although I have been studying with my own Spiritual Teacher for the past 42 years, Steiner has made me more aware of my Traveller's teachings and also more knowledgeable about how I came to be.

Read this book if you dare!

if "Esoteric Sience" (the evolution of the earth) left you with questions, this will answer some...
once you started reading you don't want to stop, (except to recapitulate...)
