Steiner : que penser de la vision de globes lumineux et des ‘voix’ dans la tête.

...the stage of consciousness I have described (picture-consciousness) was experienced on ancient Moon, only at a lower, more dreamlike level, so that no faculty of discrimination was possible. The ability to discriminate only began later, and you must thoroughly familiarise yourselves with what I have just said. Let us hang on to the fact that the clairvoyant lives his way into a kind of picture consciousness.  But during the ancient Moon evolution the pictures which arose were in the main quite different from the objects of our earthly consciousness; and the same thing applies today in the early stages of clairvoyance. The clairvoyant does not at first see external spiritual beings at all; he sees pictures, and the question is: "What do these pictures signify?" You know, in the first stages of clairvoyance they are not expressions of real external spiritual beings at all but, a kind of organ consciousness. This is a pictorial presentation, a projection in space, of what is actually going on inside ourselves. And the clarivoyant begins to develop these forces in himself, he can, to give an actual example, have a feeling he is perceiving two luminous globes far away in space. Two pictures, that is, of globes shining brightly in certain colours. ifhe were to think to himself: "somewhere outside me there are two beings", the probability is that is he would be quite wrong; at any rate that would be the case to begi with. for the fact is that his clairvoyance is projecting outward into space forces which are at work in himself, and seeing them as two globes. these two globes could represent what is at work in his astral body, bringing about in him the power of sight in his two eyes. This power of sight can be projected outwards in the form of two globes. In actual fact it is inner forces which are presenting themselves as external phenomena in astral space, and it would be taken to herald the external presence of spiritual beings.
It would still be a greater error if, right from the beginning, with the help of a little bit of questionable assistance, one were to hear voices, and immediately interpret them an inspiration from outside. This is the greatest error to which one can fall prey. It will hardly be anything else but an echo of an inner process; and while what appears in images of colour and form usually represents fairly sound inner processes, voices are as a rule signs of pretty chaotic things going on in the soul. The best thing for anyone to do who begins hearing voices is to cuiltivate the greatest mistrust in what they say. so you see that the beginning of pictorial imagery must under all circumstances be undertaken with the greatest care. It is a kind or organ consciousness, a projecting of one's own inner being into space. During the ancient Moon evolution it was normal that the consciousness possessed then was a consciousness of the organs. At the Moon stage human beings scarcely perceived anything beyond what was happening within them at the time. Genesis, (Steiner, 1910: 95-96)


Steiner : le médiumnisme et le poison de l'astralité illicite dans les plantes
(True and false paths in spiritual investigation, Steiner)

In previous reviews of Nutrition and Bees, we discovered that poisons in the plant world have a nature of astrality about them that should be reserved for the animal world. Plants that develop poisons are trying to act like animals, something that will be good for them to do in the epoch following Earth epoch, but as any good out of its time, that something becomes a evil, a harmful poison, in our time. Steiner looks at the deadly nightshade Belladonna and the harmless violet and compares them.
[page 153] The Belladonna develops its bell-shaped flowers inside which the fruit is formed and the astral element penetrates into the fruit. The violet develops its capsule only in the etheric element. The fruit of the deadly nightshade assimilates the astral element and in consequence the plant is poisonous.
This is most interesting. We find that our astral body is the bearer of forces which prove to be poisonous when assimilated by plants. This is how we must think of poison. We can only acquire an inner understanding of poison when we realize that man's astral body contains in effect the forces of all existing toxins, for they are an integral part of his being.
We might say that the violet is on a true path, but the deadly nightshade is on a false path. This will become important as we enter the study of "true and false paths in spiritual investigation" as the title of this enbooked series of lectures promises. How are we to understand the latest varieties of mediums, the so-called "channels" -- such as Lazaris, Ramtha, and Seth that were so popular in the last quarter of the 20th Century? Once more we find a "good out of its time."
[page 156, 157] And when a medium is in a trance condition, when the brain is insulated, an entity of this kind which is subject to Ahrimanic influences and whose function is to transmit the achievements of civilization to the future, slips into the brain. Instead of being the carrier of the human Ego, such a medium is, temporarily, the vehicle of an elementary being which is neglecting its duty in the Cosmos.
Thus they slip into it [the part of brain vacated by the medium's Ego] and introduce into the contemporary world what their observation has taught them of the art of writing. Thus, with the help of mediums they project into the present that which, in accordance with their mission, they ought to communicate to the future. Mediumism depends upon the fact that what is to become future capacities is already developed in the present in a vague and chaotic manner.
The beings who take possession of channels are slackers, skipping out on their real duties, and getting caught up the world of the present. Steiner tells us that in the typical séance, someone with clairvoyant vision will see the group surrounded by poisonous plants with fruits and flowers from which demoniac beings emerge. (page 162) This reminds me of the phrase from Matt 7:16, 20 "Therefore by their fruits ye will know them."
When is a human being apt to become a medium or a channel? When somehow their consciousness becomes dimmed. Our brain weighs about 1,500 grams, but floats in a liquid medium so that its effective weight is about 20 grams. In this small portion of the brain, the Ego resides. If it were to vacate that portion of the brain, an elemental being can slip in and take possession of the brain.
[page 167, 168] And fundamentally this danger is always present whenever the consciousness of man, i. e., his full Ego-consciousness, is suppressed, whenever he is in a stupefied, comatose condition or has actually suffered syncope [RJM: fainted]. Whenever man's consciousness is damped down, not through sleep, but through some other factor, there is the danger that man will be exposed to the world of elementary beings.
From the above we get the distinct impression that someone who attends séances, who consults mediums, or studies the writings of channels, is not on the true path, but rather the false path in spiritual investigation.


Les forces lunaires: quelles sont leur action?

-elles sont liées à l'éthérique et elles durcissent.
-elles sont un résidu de l'ancienne lune.
-elle sont utilisées par les magiciens noirs (et les hypnotistes). Cela rejoint la "substance de magie noire pure" au centre de la terre. (l'intérieur de la terre est fait de différents niveaux - comme différents corps - qui sont comme le reflet miroir en négatif des choses qui se passent à la surface, phsiquement, moralement, spirituellement.  

Une atmosphère très dangereuse règne autour de la terre à cause de cette activité. (Deadly orgone dirait WReich, le phénomène ovni inclu).

Cette utilisation et corruption de cette force va dans le sens contraire à la réalisatrion de la nouvelle jérusalem. elle indique un éventuel échec de l'évolution humaine, qui irait choir dans l'Abysse. La magie noire est prendre plaisir à la souffrance des autres. L'utilisation égoiste des foprces spirituelles est en soi de la magie noire. On peut se protéger par magie blanche en créant une sorte de bulle protectrice d'amour (et de repentir sincère dirait Abd-Ru-Shin) et la bienveillance de notre ange (si vous avez toujours de bonnes relations avec lui...).

Ce sont de telles forces utilisées par Klingsor contre nous (Amfortas). toute personne a en elle la blessure d'Amfortas, l'épine de rose plantée dans la chair vive. Ces forces créent des ilôts de mort en nous et il faut transformer cette inclusion en compréhension (ce que fait Perceval qui guérit Amfortas).

L'hypnotiste viole le libre-arbitre et la volonté individuelle et assujetti kekun. Cela est de la magie noire.

kekun qui ne s'est pas spiritualisé et a continué à vivre en dérivant lentement ou rapidement vers la magie noire (ou l'égoisme bin basic) deviendra lui-même un parasite. Comme ceux qui vivent, égoistement, aux dépend des autres ou qui sont liés à ce qu'on peut retirer du monde (prestige, gains de toutes sortes).

Les forces lunaires sont lies aux émanations, de diférentes sortes:
-émanations cutanées
-émanations fluidiques
-émanations lumineuses
-émanations chimiques (magie noire)

La magie noire manipule consciemment les émanations chimiques. Le médium en estpas conscient et dans son cas çâ se passe surtout avec les autres émanations.

le mediumnisme et le spiritisme font apparaître des démons (comme on trouve des démons dans diverses plantes empoisonnées, renfermant de l'astral alors qu,une plante n'en renferme pas normalement, on trouve des démons autour du médium/spirite dans les "séances"). De tels démons entourent les morts après leur mort dans le kamaloca.

Dans les séances de spiritisme, ces démons entrent dans la personne via ses émanations cutanées, fluidiques et lumineuses.

Des êtres élémentaires ahrimaniens entrent dans le médium dans la partie du cerveau qui est sujette à la gravité, dans le 21 gramme résultant de l'annulation du poids du cerveau dans le liquide céphalo-rachidien). Tout ce qui est sujet à la gravité dans le corps du médium peut être habité par un élémental ahrimanien. Le 21 grammes, au lieu de servir de vecteur dexpression du moi, devient le support d'un élémental ahrimanien. D'autres partie du corps sont arrachées à la gravité : la main, le bras, la tête, etc.

Ces éléemtaux sont informés dans leus dires par les êtres de la lune, qui sont fascinés par notre manière d'écrire, comment on forme des lettres et construit des phrases. Ils n,inspirent pas le style littéraire mais la calligraphie et la formation des mots dans kl'écriture, le mouvement du bras.

Ce sont des êtres lucifériens weird presque drôlatique, mais sur la lune il y a aussi les êtres lucifériens  qui ont été nos initiateurs primordiaux (Lémurie et Atlantide). Ils se sont poussés vers la lune vers la fin de l'Atlantide. Ils étaient rejoints et entrevus par les initiés aux mystères atlantes sous la forme d,un brouillard de feu, d'oùl'expression "fils du brouillard de feu" (son of the fire-mist). L'apparition du buisson ardent à Moise n'est pas la même chose, non plus la vision d'Ezéchiel, non plus celle de Paul...

eux ne voient pas plus loin que l'Ancienne Lune et ne cmoprennent pas l"impulsion du Christ, la semence de vie apportée sur le Golgotha. Ils sont limités à l'initiation orientale. C'est avec eux que communicait Blavatsky. il faut transcender les mystères lunaires (pour accéder à la connaissance des autres mystères).

Ce qui ressort des séances de Laura se rapporte en définitive à la huitième sphère: lézards, ufos, souvenirs de vie antérieur sous hypnose (réincarnation comprise comme réincarnation immédiate: le fils de Laura serait un mort de la seconde guerre mondiale), régression dans les souvenirs d'un enlèvement ET sous hypnose, etc. L'apparition à moise serait une projection des lézards, à Ézéchiel aussi, à DAniel (et autres prophètes). Fait penser à Steiner qui compare les prophètes d'Israel aux pythies. Les pythies obtenaient leurs visions via le corps, les processus du sang et du métabolisme en eux, reflétant les lois cosmiques. Clairvoyance atavique. Les prophètes recevaient des mssages de l'rchange du peuple hébreu dans leur sommeil et clamaient leurs prophéties dans les jours suivants. La pythie... python, dragon... Apollon vainc le Python: le Christ est annoncé dans les visions (fuimées serpentine) de la pythie, révélant que la clairvoyance atavique est révolue et que le moi surgit. Michael terrasse le dragon. En pleine séance de la Pythie en plus!

Steiner aussi dit que l'intervention de Yahvé et son rapprochement vers l'homme (de plus "éloigné" par rapport à sa création, sans forme, jusqu'à sa forme humaine: le Christ - en fait Yahvé est un reflet lunaire du Christ solaire). Le judaisme est apparu comme un oasis dans un désert luciférien. Ou pluitôt une île monothéiste dans une mer polythéiste (en décadence, l'antique science éthérique n'était déjà plus ce qu"elle fut). Les gnostiques représentent un des derniers vestiges de ces "rebelles paiens" qui ne pouvaient concevoir Dieu souffrant ou crucifié ("Il est Dieu ou il est humain?"). Ils rejetaient le judaisme parce qu'il était en décadence. ils s'acrochaient à l'antique gnose grecque et romaine, héritage de l'Orient.

La science préconisée par Laura reste ahrimanienne, non-goethéenne. Les élémentaux ahrimaniens qui bougent sa main sur la planche sert la connaissance des êtres de la lune, ancients initiateurs. Les cassio présentent ce qui est antérieur ou parallèle au monothéisme positivement, et ce systématiquement. Exemple inventé: "Le monde est définitivement expliquable par la science, dehors la religion. La mystique et l'extase sont des voies d'entrée dans les autres dimensions et là on est libre parce que libéré des contraintes illusoires du temps et de l'espace. Oui je veux bien, notre façon de regarder le monde est pure maya... mais faut pas tomber dans la maya de l'explication scientifique du modne car il ne mène qu'à des imaginations ahrimaniennes (l'atome, l'éectron conscience, le quanta, le flux subquantique, comme nouvelles imaginations ahrimaniennes placées devant nos yeux par des élémentaux ahrimaniens).

Steiner dit que les élémentaux ahrimaniens qui se manifestent dans le médiumnisme (si ce ne sont pas les morts comme dans le spiritisme) devraient normalement transmettre d,une génération à l'autre les achèvements techniques. C'est de telles indications suir la science et la technique que les cass donnent et que Laura et Ark développent avec le QFS. Ça pourrait fucker les chances qu'on développe comme prévu la technique morale (qui est une toute autre collaboration avec les élémentaux que dans le médiumnisme!). QFS développent un bagage de connaissances sur les autres dimensions, la physique quantique, etc. Leur méthode est loin d'être goethéenne et tient plutôt de l'héritage global de Gundi shapur, science expérimentale qui reste dans le même créneau que Bacon.

Supposément que la race matérialiste qui va se déveloper parallèlement à la race michaélique va faire de grandes avancées techniques...

Selon l'anthroposophie, ni le médiumnisme ni le développement technique (tous deux inspirés par les élémentaux ahrimaniens) ne sont pas des exemples de collaboration légitime entre humains et élémentaux. élémentaux inspirés par la connaissance des grands maîtres lunaires du passé. élémentaux qui devraient faire leur job concernant le futur mais qui à la place viennent donner des cours au moment où on se parle. Des individus développent une science qui veut percer les secrets de l'invisible et des dimensions, sans trop se remettre en question à savoir si leur technoscience va vraiment dans la bonne voie (les cass les encouragent à percer les secrets de l'éthérique mais en restant du point de vue (matérialiste) du chercheur expérimental.. (tel qu'inspiré par la science ahrimanisée, matérialiste) ou si on serait pas pris dans les schèmes présentés par Ahriman (atomes, etc.). Chercher du côté des champs morphogénétiques c'est utiliser un concept matérialiste car le champ est une propriété de la matière. L'Éthérique est au-delà. Chercher des dimensions bien matérielles dont le potentiel peut être exploité et dont la compréhensin 'nous libère de la prison de la matrice'... je ne crois pas que ce soit vraiment la voie qui mène à l'Ascension, mais plutôt à une connaissance du monde inférieur subatomique (c'est un voyage chamanique aux enfers mais à cela il manque la résurrection qui élève vers le spirituel).


Les forces anti-graal (Lucifer) sont 'anti-lune'
Klingsor VS the moon. According to Walter johannes Stein, The Death of Merlin, chp13, pp:192:

"Klingsor formed an alliance with Iblis (the musilm form of Lucifer). Iblis the wife of King Ibert, is described by Wolfram as the woman whose lover Klingsor illegitimately becomes. The jealous King responds by castrating Klingsor. the power of Lucifer appears here as the power that fights against the forces of physical procreation. The cosmic expression of the forces of procreation and sustenance is the moon. FOR EXAMPLE THE EMBRYO DEVELOPS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MOON CYCLES, AND OUR FIRST NOURISHMENT, MILK, IS ALSO DEPENDENT ON THIS CYCLE. The moon is the cosmic image of the grail vessel, Gangandi Greidi, "food for the way", is the name given to the Grail vessel in the Nordic version of the Grail legend. The powers which serve the metabolic processes of nurishment and procreation are high spiritual powers but human beings can misuse them by giving them to Lucifer through passion, through lust; these powers can also be taken away but the seeker of the Grail must transform them. What that means is indicated by Wlofram in Parzival attitude to Condwiramurs Klingsor, on the other hand, is robbed of these powers. The nature of pure love can be learnt from the sun which freely gives its vitalizing strenght and demands noting in return. Grail love endeavours to be similarly altruistic, only wanting to give."

L'anti-graal déteste l'impulsion de la lune: la force de reproduction. Klingsor est leur représentant: c'est l'équivalent de Lucifer. Lucifer agit contre la force de reproduction et des générations (hérédité). Steiner dit que les premières bases de l'amour sont liées au sang, la famille, l'hérédité mais que Lucifer nous en a libéré. Or, la lune n'est pas mauvaise en soi! C'est la huitième sphère, le double maléfique du monde sublunaire (lié à la lune et, en bas, la terre aussi) qui bouffe nos émotions et se nourrit du mal, des passions humaines, etc. L'ambroisie, liqueur des dieux, selon Steiner serait simplement l'amour humain dont se nourrissent les dieux. Steiner ne mélange pas les deux histoires, l'ambroisie et la huitième sphère, contrairement à Gurdjieff qui voit une identité commune entre les deux.

Les forces de Klingsor (magie noire, anti-graal) sont liées à la sexualité pervertie et oppressante, à la sexualité en tant que pulsion avec laquelle on a à lutter quotidiennement. on perd bcp de force vitales la dedans, dans le désir de gratification et de satisfaction sexuelle. C'est ce que représente la blessure du roi du graal Amfortas, blessé au combat par Klingsor,blessé à l'aide de la lance du destin, qui représente ici les forces de la sexualité non sublimée et qui le tourmentent. il faut se rappeler que Amfortas, voulant délivrer les chevaliers du graal qui ont viré du côté obscur après avoir succombé aux tentations sexuelles du jardin des délices de Klingsor (où l’on rencontre notre double sous la forme de l'anima (le corps éthérique de l'homme est féminin): Kundry. Elle est une sorcière qui peut apparaître très sexy.  Amfortas est tombé dans le piège qui lui était tendu au jardin des délices de Klingsor. Au lieu de vaincre en lui-même les pulsions sexuelles, il est parti en guerre contre Klingsor et les traîtres ex-chevaliers du graal. Sous l'impulsion d'orgueil, Amfortas a décidé d'attaquer Klingsor avec la lance du destin. Il n'aurait pas du amener la lance au combat (c'est mal d'utiliser les forces spirituelles pour son propre égoisme), et il l'a malheureusement perdu aux mains de Klingsor qui lui a fait une blessure inguérissable. Pour guérir Amfortas, qui représente l'humanité en tant qu'elle est blessée par l'esclavage envers les pulsions du désir, Perceval devra reprendre des maiins de Klingsor la lance du destin et avec la pointe de la lance il guérira la blessure inguérissasble. La lance du destin représente dans un tel contexte la compassion qui guérit tout, même une blessure sans espoir de guérison. C'est la même chose que la maladie du Roi Arthur qui ne peut être guérie que par le graal.

La lune serait le fruit du sacrifice de Jehovah, qui se sacrifie lui-même pour empêcher Lucifer d'en finir avec l'évolution humaine et de tout emporter dans la huitième sphère. Lucifer a eu la brillante idée de diviser l'humanité en deux sexes et de créer la guerre des sexes, un sexe introverti féminin et un sexe extroverti masculin. Pour remédier à cette division (Lucifer, diabolos, divise tout le temps, il a divisé les langues, les sexes, les races, etc.; le symbole unit, le diabole divise), Jéhovah (lunaire) en accord avec les six autres Élohim solaires (ceux qui ont dit faisons l'homme à notre image) a imposé l'INTERDÉPENDANCE des sexes. Désormais les sexes auront beau être divisés, ils doivent néanmoins se rencontrer intimement pour se reproduire: la sexualité et les forces de reproduction, procréation, nutrition de l'enfant (lait maternel) et de croissance physique, l'hérédité, le lien du sang et de la terre sont différentes facettes liées à l'influence de la lune. Pendant l'époque Lémurienne, qui a vu naître la division des sexes et la fin de l'androgynie, les sexes se sont divisés sous l'impulsion de Lucifer et Jéhovah a créé les liens de l'hérédité et de la procréation pour créer des liens d'amour entre humains, pour justement contrer la force diviseuse et d'opposition précoce des humains. L'humain menaçait de devenir individualiste trop rapidement sous l'impulsion de Lucifer. Jéhovah a rendu nécessaire l'amour lié aux liens du sang, le désir de l'autre sexe et les liens familiaux-tribaux-nationaux, etc. (Jehovah était le dieu national du peuple hébreu). Or, cette impulsion est passée date si on peut dire: se réclamer des liens de sang, d'hérédité et liés à la terre c'est véhiculer une idéologie retardataire dans notre époque présente qui est sous l'égide de Michael et dans laquelle l'humain doit s'ouvrir au cosmopolitisme et donc se libérer des liens du sang et du nationalisme. La sexualité peut même devenir démoniaque sous l'inspiration de Lilith, chef des asuras, qui tente tout le temps de prendre la place qui revient légitimement à la déesse mère, la divine Sophia, qui lui est infiniment supérieure (Lilith est une archée, Sophia est au moins trois degrés plus élevée dans les hiérarchies célestes).
J-Christ a justement brisé les liens imposés par Jéhovah (amour lié à l'hérédité, la terre, la procréation, etc.). Il a annulé l'ancienne loi et en a établi une nouvelle. Il disait qu'il était venu porter l'épée et semer la pagaille dans les familles. Il venait accomplir un geste comparable à celui de Lucifer, sauf que Lucifer l'a fait trop tôt (un mal est un bien déplacé, trop tôt ou trop tard, pas à sa place).
Lucifer divise (le sexe, la tribu, l’ethnie, la race, etc.) alors que Jéhovah impose la nécessité de la sexualité et l'hérédité qui crée l'amour filial, consanguin;
Le Christ vient annuler la Loi de Jéhovah et permet ainsi à l'amour de se manifester non plus seulement aux membres de notre communauté mais indistinctement à toute l'humanité, indépendamment des liens de sang et de la terre.
de 1400 à 1850, Gabriel (lunaire)régnait et renforçait les liens héréditaires, nationalistes, la pensée matérialiste. Science. Réincarnation des savants arabes de Gundi Shapur.
de 1850 à 2300 environ, Michael (solaire) va dans le sens inverse de Gabriel: notre temps est placé sous le thème du cosmopolitisme, de la science spirituelle, de l'amour inconditionnel envers toute l'humanité. Les impulsions nationalistes surtout celles inspirées par l'ancien testament, sont dégénératives, décadentes. Les liens du sang et de la terre doivent être transcendés pour rencontrer l'autre dans sa spécificité individuelle, indépendamment de ce qu'il a hérité des forces lunaires. Mais les forces lunaires ne sont pas mauvaises, elles forment une partie de notre karma; c'est pas pour rien qu'on est de telle nationalité, de telle souche génétique, de telle stature physique, etc.
Klingsor, comme Lucifer, est révolté contre tout ce qui lui est imposé contre sa volonté. Il s'est castré des forces lunaires qui l'attachent aux forces de la Nécessité. en fait il a été castré sous les ordres d'un roi dont il s'était épris de la reine. Sa castration est la conséquence de son adultère. Il représente bien la mentalité chrétienne médiévale qui se castre pour se cloîtrer dans un monastère, qui impose sa volonté sur son corps de façon tyrannique, écrasant l'animal et la nature en soi. D'un autre côté, Klingsor est lié à la débauche sexuelle, pensons au jardin des délices et à ses aguichantes tentatrices du style de la grande prostituée de Babylone (Apocalypse de Jean). La femme Kundry qui a tenté Amfortas représente son double éthérique non transformé: car le monachisme étouffe la sexualité mais ne la transforme pas. Kundry représente aussi le double de Perceval, qui, lors de la guérison d'Amfortas, clame que Perceval n'est qu'un imposteur: elle se sent menacée par la victoire de Perceval. Elle se transforme finalement en charmante princesse.
Pour ce qui est de la huitième sphère (je change de direction complètement): oui elle est nourrie de toutes les émotions humaines engendrées par l'égoisme. Au contraire, l'amour pur entre un homme et un femme (ou autre tant que ça reste un amour pur et non pas guidé par le désir!) nourrit les dieux, c'est le fameux mythe de l'ambroisie la liqueur des dieux. ça c'est le mythe, on peut spéculer sur la nature historique du liquide en question (absinthe, soma, etc.), ça m'importe peu, l'important c'est l'archétype qu'il manifeste, pas la constitution chimique des drogues sacrées.

L'anti-graal déteste l'impulsion de la lune: la force de reproduction. Klingsor est leur représentant: c'est l'équivalent de Lucifer. Lucifer agit contre la force de reproduction et des générations (hérédité). Steiner dit que les premières bases de l'amour sont liées au sang, la famille, l'hérédité mais que Lucifer nous en a libéré. Ce n’est pas la lune qui est mauvaise, c'est plutôt son contrepoids, la huitième sphère, le double maléfique du monde sublunaire (lié à la lune et, en bas, la terre aussi) qui mange nos émotions et se nourrit du mal, des passions humaines.  L'ambroisie, liqueur des dieux, selon Steiner serait simplement l'amour humain dont se nourrissent les dieux (petits et grands êtres élémentaires, parfois des êtres lucifériens ou ahrimaniens). Steiner ne mélange pas les deux histoires, il n’explique pas l'ambroisie comme étant la huitième sphère, contrairement à Gurdjieff. Vous pouvez penser ce que vous voulez de ça, mais moi je soupçonne que le Belzébub de Gurdjieff est Lucifer. (Belzébub est un Dzyan, comme le Livre de Dzyan des théosophistes, mais il est le double négatif du dzyan Michael. Dzyan veut dire archange.)


La huitième sphère

Les théosophistes Blavatsky, Olcoot et Sinnet ont brisé la glace en matière de révélation des secrets de l'occultisme. Malgré son caractère chaotique, Blavatsky représentait un réel danger pour les loges d'initiés de la main gauche (occidentales et orientales). Ils l'ont par conséquent "emprisonnée" par des moyens occultes. Steiner l'explique ainsi: au moyen de magie cérémonielle , l'âme de la personne concernée se retrouve entourée sur le plan astral par un voile suprasensible ou une aura particulière qui réfléchi toutes les impulsions que l'âme oriente vers le monde extérieur. Tout son savoir se trouvait retournée contre elle-même, comme dans une boucle fermée, une chambre close: ses illusions de grandeur lui reviennent comme étant des messagers qui lui disent qu'elle est élue, etc. (comme David Icke!). Elle a été libérée de son emprisonement occulte par une loge orientale indo-tibétaine tantrique qui avaient des idées derrière la tête (nationalistes et autres pensées SDS), des intérêts égoistes de groupe (SDS). Elle s'est retrouvée à faire la propagande de l'oeuvre de Sinnet et des faussetés qu'il a propagé sur la huitième sphère. Le tournant anti-Yahvé et anti-Jésus-Christ de l'oeuvre de Blavatsky, inspiré par les "découvertes" de Sinnet et Olcoot, est définitivement inspiré par la haine des loges d'initiés orientaux envers le monde occidental judéo-chrétien. Les initiés des loges non seulement indo-tibétaines mais aussi les loges Indiennes et Égyptiennes nourissent la même haine d'avoir été supplanté et écrasé par le monde judéo-chrétien et un désir de vengeance, du moins de détourner notre regard du Christ au point de l'ignorer complètement ou d'en faire un simple maître de bas étage (le théosophisme vénère "l'Enseignant, le Maître par excellence: Lucifer"; ils laissent intouché le cosmos d'amour et nous ravalent dans le cosmos passé de sagesse luciférienne ou atlante comme le bouddhisme surtout tibétain allié au bon-po mongol). Blavatsky s'est retroubvée enre les mains de ceux qui désiraient répandre une fausse doctrine (au sujet de la Lune) à l'humanité. Steiner dit qu'elle est parvenue à réparer son erreur quand elle s'en est rendue compte dans la Doctrine Secrète, mais il était déjà trop tard, le mal était fait. Mais sa rectification a malheureusement accentué le penchant unilatéraliste des loges oritenales de la voie gauche car elle réitère un faux enseignement sur Yahvé et Jésus. Elle visait explicitement à enrayer le travail de Jésus-Christ, du Christianisme et du judaisme de la surface du globe.
Elle a dit que la Lune n'était finalement pas la huitième sphère mais bien qu'elle a été placée là par Dieu comme contrepoids aux forces du mal représentées par la huitième sphère, ce qui est correct, selon  Steiner et Harrison.

Agni Yoga et Lucifer (matérialisme spirituel et huitième sphère)
Fondateurs de l'Agni Yoga (yoga du feu), Helena et Nicolas Roerich (l'inspirateur de la pyramide tronquée du novo ordo seclorum du dollar américain) faisaient du channeling pour les Mahatmas Frère Morya et Frère Koot Humi de la Fraternité Blanche cachée dans les vallées inaccessibles de l'Himalaya, à Shamballah (c n'estpas la vraie Shamballah céleste du Christ, la nouvelle Jérusalem, les Mahatmas parlent ici de la Shamballah terreste, son double luciférien à penchant démoniaque genre parode de roi du Monde, Agartha et compagnie).
L'inspirateur d'Helena Roerich lui parlent de leurs laboratoires, auxquels personne ne peut avoir accès ans "un appel" et "sans guide". Il parle de ses "appareils de vision à distance" (double vue avec des moyens extérieurs), de ses "miroirs prismatiques" etc. C'est décrit de façon grossièrement matérielle: appareils téléscopiques et d'autres qui collectent l'énergie psychique, d'autres qui mesurent la tension du feu dans l'espace.ils prétendent que tous leurs appareils onctionnent non seulement du niveau raffiné mais aussi du niveau physique. toutes ces visions sont irrémédiablement imprégnées des concepts de la science matérialiste moderne, apparaissant dans une forme hautement matérielle, laissant paraître le spectre de la 8e sphère.  

Le nom d'Urusvati devient souvent, du sanskrit signifiant lumière de l'étoile du matin - vénus, donc Lucifer. C'est ainsi qu'Héléna appaelait son inspiration. Dans un des versets du livre (tous très répétitifs et hypnotisants à la longue...), ça dit que Urusvati connais les tours Chung (les tours ou seraient situées les "laboratoires" et "observatoires" des mahatmas).
Nicolas Roerich raconte avoir souvent vu des appareils volants non identifés: " si vous travesez le remarquable plateau tibétain avec ses vagues magnétiques et ses extraordinaires phénomènes optiques ("miracles de lumière"), si tu en entend parler ou en voit toi-même, tu viens d'en apprendre sur les mahatmas. Je n'ai pas l'intention de vous convaincre de leur existence. Plusieurs les ont vu, ont conversé avec eu, ont reçu des lettres ou des objets de leur part." Dans un autre article il reporte au lama tibétain: "Lama, non loin de Ulan-Davana (au Nord du tibet) on a vu un énorme vautour... il a traversé le ciel et est entré dans la trajectoire d'un objet lumineux radiant, magnifique brillant sous l'éclat du soleil. Les yeux du lama se sont mis à briller: "Shamballah te protège, son povoir protecteur te suit sous l'aspect de cette matière radiante, as-tu remarqué dans quelle direction il allait?""  Selon Prokofieff, cela n,a rien à voir avec la vraie Shamballah, mais bien avec la 8e sphère. Ce sont des imaginations luciférianisées de l'ancienne Lune, remplies de matière volée de l'évolution terrestre actuelle, dont Ahriman se charge de rendre matériel et visible sous la forme d'hallucinations. Ahriman interfère dans nos perceptions et nous ilusionne à leur égard.

Dans son livre elle énumère les nombreux cas ou les mahatmas ont aidé les humains par de nombreux émissaires. Les influences peuvent être psychiques ou complètement matérielles. Les rencontres peuvent être faites par lettres (contenant parfois de l'argent - bcp d'argent - ou des instructions pécises) mais tjrs de source totalement inconue. Des personnages mystérieux entrent en contact et donnent des conseils à des politiciens, artistes, inventeurs. Parfois les mohatmas apparaissent physiquement en personne ou parfois, aux élèves les plus avancés, dans un corps éthérique.
Roerich dénonce souvent Ahriman, mais il l'appelle Lucifer. Et Lucifer, cest en fait l'inspiration derrière toute la doctrine canalisée par lui et sa femme, de même que par Blavatsky et Sinnet: il parle de "la chute de Lucifer en Atlantide", mais il se trompe: cet événement correspond en fait, selon la science spirituelle, à la chute d'Ahrimane au milieu de l'Atlantide. Lucifer estdéchu depuis bcp plus longtemps. Roerich mélange Lucifer et Ahriman, il ne peut donc distinguer leurs influences respectives. Dans sa description des forces de la lumière contre les ténèbres, il oppose en fait inconsciemmenmt Lucifer et Ahriman.
La doctrine est du matérialisme spirituel qui se prend pour une science spirituelle. le spirituel serait rien d'autre que de la "matière plus raréfiée, plus raffinnée", des "vibrations plus hautes" (David Icke et plein de Newagers pensent ça). Ils prétendent même qu'il n'y a rien en dehoprs de la matière, aucun esprit en dehors de la matière!  
Il ne faut pas confondre les mahatmas avec les authentiques boddhisattvas de Shamballah (Bouddha et plein d'autres), qui sont les représentants du Logos de la Lune. Le problème est qu'ils sont inconscients de refléter l'ancien Soleil, ils ne réalisent pas qu'is ne font que servir le logos solaire, le Christ. Bouddha (Mercure) en est conscient. Bouddha a été le messager du Christ du Soleil vers Vénus.

la huitième sphère selon Steiner (par S.O. Prokofieff):
Lucifer a initié la création de la 8e Sphère en conservant illicitement de la substance de l'ancienne lune jusqu'au jourd'hui. Dansles formes de l'ancienne lune, on peut reconnaître la clairvoyance origienelle, devenue aujourd'hui atavique parce que sortie de son contexte temporel. La développememt de l'ancienne Lunne est tel une réfléxion des lois des mondes spirituels. En Saturne, la chaleur (l'intuition) et le physique humain sont nés. En Soleil l'air et le vent (l'inspiration) s'est ajouté, de même que l'éthérique humain. en Lune, le liquide-spongieux (l'imagination) s'est formée, de même que l'astral humain. Le minéral et la conscience de veille ne sont apparues que sur Terre.  Des imaginations réfléchissant les mondes spirituels, la substance de l'ancienne Lune, ont été conservées par Lucifer. Dans la 8e sphère aujourd'hui, on a affaire à des densifications (minéralisées) des imaginations de l'ancienne Lune.  C'est Ahriman qui le fournit en stock minéral volé à notre évolution terrestre.  C'est un faux phénomène, dans le sens qu'il est illégal, qu'il est faussé, truqué, complètement artificiel. C'est l'intention commune de Lucifer et Ahriman de faire dévier l'évolution terrestre et l'humain dans la 8e sphère ce qui ferait avorter la transformation de la Terre en Jupiter (nouvelle Jérusalem). Développer un penchant pour le matérialisme occulte nous incline vers la pente menant tout droit à la 8e sphère. Aprèes la mort, la personne risque fort de se faire voler une partie de son corps astral par un Lucifer désireux de l'entraîner dans la 8e sphère et de l'imprégner de matière.Dans cette existence spectrale, à mi-chemin entre le matériel et le psychique, les formes gagnent un poids et une mesure, "comme" dans le monde physique, mais plus comme une réalité virtuelle. Relier les anciennes traditions des védas aux théories d'Einstein, vioilà selon l'auteur, une des inspirations des mahatmas aujourd'hui, guidant vers un matérialisme spirituel qui inaugure déjà un dangereux penchant pour la huitième sphère. La volonté risque aussi de sombrer dans la 8e sphère. Lucifer et Ahriman veulent s'emparer de la matière du cerveau, qui est inmprégné de sagesse dans sa construction. Penser des pensées matérialistes les en imprègne, renforçant la 8e sphère.

Le retour du Maitreya est attendu par les théosophistes et bcp de newagers. on prétend qu'il complète la triade Christ-Bouddha-Maitreya.

Nicolas Roerich a dédié une bonne partie de ses toiles à Ghengis Khan, représentant de la clairvoyance atavique atlante luciférianisée. Il parle d'un graal venu d'une autre planète, tombée du ciel, mais plus comme une pierre brute ou le chalice d'Amrita, qui a une similarité avec le soma des hindous. Mais son lapis exilis est luciférien, pas imprégné du Christ, c'est un vieux chalice qui n'est pas devenu le Graal, refusant le sang du christ, le Soleil.  

Les références à un monde plus raffiné, au feu derrière les apprences, sont liées au fait qu'il s'agit d'un Agni yoga: yoga du feu. C'est encore la même matière rafinée, raréfiée, monde de feu cosmique. Il faut en effet éthériser le sang le remplir de feu, mais les tedhniques des roerich et du théorophisme le font en fonction des anciennes techniques liées au cosmos passé de sagesse. Ce n'est pas la force christiques qui entre dans le sang dans le cas de l'Agni yoga. Le vrai mystère du coeur enflammé (sacré-coeur) ne s'y trouve pas. Notons aussi l'effet hyupnotisant de la lecture du livre Agni yoga et l'insistance sur la dépendance envers les mahatmas. Le risque de perdre sa libre-volonté (free will) est grand et nourrit la 8e sphère. Dépendance envers un maître et matérialisme occulte : la volonté glisse vers la 8e sphère.

un plan a été donné à Roerich par son maître mahatma: 1) la puissances des USA doit se faire sentir (Roerich était membre des services secrets et ambassadeur pendant un temps aux USA) partout dans le monde afin que personne n'ose attaquer une si grande puissance 2) toutes les configurations astrologiques sont favorables à la négociation et à une signature subséquente par le Président. Le but est d'unir les Amériques, surtout Amérique du nord et du sud. 3) l'attention du président doit être tournée vers l'ESt: la Russie!! Les USA doivent s'en mêler pour le bien du futur de la Russie (une Russie américanisée!!). encore une fois le centre de l'Europe, de l’Allemagne à la Russie, est oblitéré, laissé pour compte, alors qu'il devrait agir comme un médiateur spirituellement créatif et réunir ce dualisme mondial.

The Eighth Sphere: Lucifer's Dream

"The destiny of Ahriman and Lucifer is that they work with their forces in earth evolution and repeatedly make the greatest efforts to hold back the wider progress of evolution; they try to establish a realm for themselves, and have again and again to suffer disillusionment." [1]

The preceding is one of the most general statements I've ever read by Steiner about the goals of Lucifer and Ahriman.  In previous essays, I have concentrated on a few of the approaches they use to sidetrack our evolution, but I didn't go into much detail on their intended destination.  That is the subject of this essay.

The "destination" to which I refer is known as the Eighth Sphere.  It's a quasi-spiritual world which surrounds us.  It was produced by Lucifer and Ahriman just as our solar system's previous "incarnation," a.k.a. the Old Moon "manvantara," was ending.  As Steiner puts it, "Thus as Sphere Three [Old Moon manvantara was] advancing to a further stage, something is wrested from the Spirits of Form by Lucifer and Ahriman; into this part that is wrested away, Lucifer and Ahriman penetrate, instead of the Sprits of Form.  The activities of Lucifer and Ahriman are added to the Spirits of Movement [among others which created the Old Moon] and, as a result Eight arises out of Three." [2]

In An Outline of Occult Science [3], Steiner describes this "substantiality": "[Mankind was] embedded in the above-described vaporous environment.  The most manifold processes occur within this mistlike element.  Substances now unite, now separate. Certain parts condense, others become rarefied. All this occurs in such a way that the human beings neither see nor hear it directly, but images [Imaginations] are called forth by it in their consciousness....  Although they are symbols, not copies, they correspond, nevertheless, to the outer events....  A Moon humanity is thus in the position to direct its actions in accordance with these pictures [although driven by dull urges instead of having free will]." [4]

Another angle on this Old Moon form of consciousness is provided by the following excerpt:

in days when the semi-fluid, semi-vaporous Earth was still united with the Moon. Man moved through the semi-fluid, semi-gaseous element like a fish, guiding his way by means of this organ. His perceptions were of a visionary, allegoric nature. Currents of warmth evoked in him the impression of dazzling red and of powerful sound. Currents of cold evoked the impression of shades of green and blue, silvery, rippling sounds. [4a]

Then, as the Earth manvantara (the first one with "solid" matter) began to materialize, Lucifer and Ahriman took the opportunity to grab some of it for their world and infused it into the "substance" which they had stolen from the Old Moon: "Thus when the mineral comes into existence out of the Imaginative substantiality, it is snatched by Lucifer and Ahriman and made into Imagination [i.e. given the form of Imagination instead of that which it was supposed to take]." [5]

Steiner reinforces this statement in a passage which includes a tantalizing potential clue to the nature of the Ghost Society:

"Mark this well: Instead of pure Imagination [Old moon "substantiality"] being there, the Imaginations ARE DENSIFIED BY THE INFUSION OF A MINERAL ELEMENT THAT HAS BEEN WRESTED FROM THE EARTH.  Densified Imaginations are thus created.... They are ghosts, spectres - that is to say, behind our world there is a world of spectres created by Lucifer and Ahriman." [5]

But that wasn't the end of it; Lucifer and Ahriman continue to take whatever they can from Earth, and convert it into Old Moon substance to add to their world:

Lucifer and Ahriman strive unceasingly to draw from the Earth's substances whatever they can snatch, in order to form their Eighth Sphere which then, when it is sufficiently advanced, will be detached from the Earth and go its own way in the Cosmos together with Lucifer and Ahriman. [7]

This impolite pair find their greatest success in seizing physical matter in human beings, specifically, in the brain.  From what I gather, this is because, as Steiner puts it, "physical substance there is more spiritualized that anywhere else."  He also states that "everything that is similar to the head ... is equally exposed to the danger of being dispatched to the Eighth Sphere." [8]

"New Age" gang spreads confusion about the 8th Sphere

In the Occult Movement in the 19th Century, Steiner devotes considerable time to the spin put on the 8th Sphere by A.P. Sinnett's book Esoteric Buddhism.  Sinnett essentially states that the present Moon is the 8th Sphere, when in fact the physical aspect of the Moon was created by Jahve to prevent a certain amount of matter from being seized by Lucifer and Ahriman.  Steiner claims that Sinnett's distortion was intended to convey a materialistic version of reincarnation, which he does not describe.  I'll take his word for it, but I think it's safe to say that it also tends to conceal a major aspect of what Lucifer and Ahriman are doing.

Steiner also mentions that H.P. Blavatsky, upon realizing that she was being used by so-called left-hand initiates (who pursue selfish interests) to give the impression that their propaganda was coming from benevolent higher beings, tried to correct Sinnett's error.  But she wasn't a very good writer, and Sinnett's teachings became the generally accepted view among theosophists.

Seducing and driving us to the 8th Sphere

"If Rome had developed in such a way that a great all-embracing mechanized empire had arisen, it would only have been habitable for egoless human beings who would have remained on earth after Lucifer had drawn out their souls on the path of Greek culture and art. YOU SEE HOW AHRIMAN AND LUCIFER WORK TOGETHER. LUCIFER WANTS TOTAKE MEN'S SOULS AWAY AND FOUND A PLANET WITH THEM OF HIS OWN.AHRIMAN HAS TO HELP HIM. WHILE LUCIFER SUCKS THE JUICE OUT OF THE
LEMON, AS IT WERE, AHRIMAN PRESSES IT OUT, THEREBY HARDENING WHATREMAINS. This is what he tried to do to the civilization of Rome. Here we have an important cosmic process going on  all due to the intention and resolve of luciferic and ahrimanic powers. As I have said, they were disappointed. They have continued their efforts, however, and our fifth post-Atlantean age has yet [as of 1916] to learn how strong these attacks are. They are now only beginning but they will become stronger and stronger. This age must learn, too, that THE NECESSITY TO UNDERSTAND THESE ATTACKS WILL BECOME EVER GREATER." [emphasis added] [9]

"But the endeavor of Lucifer and Ahriman is TO DRAG THE FREE WILL OF MAN, AND WHATEVER STEMS FROM IT, into the Eighth Sphere.  This means that man is perpetually exposed to the danger of having his free will wrested from him and dragged by Lucifer and Ahriman into the Eighth Sphere.
 
"This happens if the element of free will is transformed, FOR EXAMPLE, into visionary clairvoyance.  When this is the case, a man is already in the Eighth Sphere.  This is a matter of which occultists are reluctant to speak, because it is an awful, terrible truth.
...
Lucifer and Ahriman are engaged perpetually in shackling man's free will and in conjuring all sorts of things before him in order TO TEAR AWAY WHAT HE MAKES OUT OF THESE THINGS and let it disappear into the Eighth Sphere."

I presume that what Steiner means by "conjuring all sorts of things before him" means that they directly or indirectly arrange stimuli which are calculated to produce certain states of mind which facilitate the theft of will.  

Free will is our ability to convert our decisions into objects and events in the physical world, and developing it is one of our main tasks at this stage in our evolution.  Therefore, taking it from us is a means of interfering with our evolution.

Satan and Lucifers' basic strategy for leading our higher souls or egos to the 8th Sphere is to cause humans to become disenchanted with Earth and unwittingly enchanted with the Eighth Sphere.  Earth-mankind would then become a race of homunculi, or talking animals, much like Beavis and Butthead.

In preventing their success, mankind has had a great deal of assistance from the progressive side of the spiritual hierarchy, in ways which few would expect.  In Inner Impulses of Evolution, Steiner describes the tactics they used during ancient Greek and Roman times.  But that was then, and this is now, and what happens is much more up to us.

A typical approach to demonic possession

Before I became curious about the essence of Satanism, I  had fortunately studied The Occult Movement in the 19th  Century, a collection of lectures by Rudolf Steiner  (1865-1925), who was dubbed "the great scientist of the  invisible" after his unusually precise clairvoyant abilities  and scientific approach to studying what he perceived.   After wading through the occultish BS about Satanism on  the internet for a while, I began to realize that Steiner had  been dropping hints about the essence of Satanism, which  is that it is designed to trick people into becoming  possessed. (He couldn't just come out and say it, for various  reasons, but he wasn't trying to protect Satanism.) If you  want to study the relevant section of the book for yourself,  start on page 147.  Here are the passages which contain  the most direct clues:

"If, as the result of certain teachings  having been   imparted to him without  the requisite caution   [preparation] a  man comes into contact with certain    destructive beings behind the veil of  nature [i.e. the   "veil" is what we  consider to be the material world],  he   will become one who VALUES NOTHING IN THE WORLD,  and  it will soon be apparent  that he TAKES ACTUAL PLEASURE  IN DESTRUCTION - which need not necessarily   be  destruction of external things.  Many  men to  whom this  has happened have  shown that they TAKE PLEASURE IN  TORMENTING AND OPPRESSING OTHER SOULS.    These are  the characteristics which  come into  evidence.  But it can  never  be said that men who  have such traits  owing to  their alliance with Ahrimanc [Satanic] elementary beings,  are  invariably egotistic.   They need not, and  usually are  not, egotists.  They  act out  of an urge quite different  from that of egotism.  THEY ACT OUT OF A LUST FOR  DESTRUCTION, and  they destroy without  the slightest  benefit accruing to   themselves.  The beings into whose   sphere a man  enters are essentially  beings of destruction,  and the  tempt  him, lure him, to destroy." p 161
                     
The region of destructive spirits into  which a man  may  come is disclosed  most clearly of all if a soul is  observed   at the moment of passing through the  gate  of death.   Then these spiritual  beings swirl forward in  their hosts;  nor  is this surprising, for they are the  spirits  of  destruction.  To work at the  destruction of  the physical  organism is  their regular function.   page 180

The region of Scylla is that of the spirits  who serve   Ahriman.  WE COME INTO THEIR SPHERE IF WE CULTIVATE,  NOT EGOTISM, BUT THE WILL FOR DESTRUCTION.  [Nietzsche's "will to power?"] page 164

For example, there actually exists in the  world an  [occult]  Order which leads men to knowledge of  these mysterious  beings  without any preparation.  In  all such  men,  instincts of destruction are aroused, so  that this order is  actually  responsible for sending  human beings  with  destructive instincts out into the world.   p 157

Nature-spirits, or "elementals," perform low-level tasks  related to maintaining the natural world.  Some  elementals, such as fairies, are responsible for such things  as plant growth. Demons are a destructive class of  elementals whose normal function is the decomposition of   things that have died, i.e. plants, animals, and humans.  They are "offspring" of very high-ranking   Ahrimanic/Satanic beings.  This is what  gives these  demons their extreme  cleverness, which in their case is   dedicated  to destruction.

Furthermore, these beings, as Steiner  puts it, have  a  "remarkable affinity" for  humans, because the  forces  which they  use for thinking are very similar to  those   which correspond to our "sensuous  urges."   Put another  way, their highest  forces correspond to  our lowest.  (Twin  Peaks depicted their affinity for sex and  violence.)   They  constantly  strive to latch onto this particular  level  of our  souls, and turn us into their  puppets. They do this because  they are  controlled by  Ahriman, whom Steiner  said is  constantly striving to seize our intellect through various  means.

Steiner uses the words "clever" and  "cunning" to   characterize the quality of  thinking of demons, and thus  those who are possessed by them.   Webster's defines  "clever" as  "mentally  quick and resourceful but often  lacking in  depth and soundness" and "marked by  wit and   ingenuity," and "cunning" as  "characterized by  wiliness  and trickery."  
On the other hand, Lucifer, contrary to his reputation for  wanting to free us, constantly strives to extract our free  will, and it appears that removing the will is one  aspect of  mind  control programs like MK-Ultra and Monarch, which  can be traced back to black magicians.  (The "god" of black  magic, or Magick, is the Antichrist, a very high-level and  purely evil being, whose "horns" are Ahriman/Satan and  Lucifer.  Another way of putting this is that black magic is  a synergistic combination of Satanism and Luciferianism.)

Steiner refers to a spiritual "membrane" or "threshold"  consisting of the influence of  spiritual  beings, which  normally  prevents demons from  having any  influence on  us.  However, if a person brings himself to the point where  he enjoys killing (or tormenting) for its own sake, this  protection is  weakened, and demons can (and will) "grab" the lowest  region of his soul, which corresponds to "sensuous urges."   The demonic thoughts (which are oriented to the  destruction of the bodies of plants, animals, and humans)  thus take control over the nature and intensity of his  sensuous urges, and thus seize control over him.  Steiner   goes into  considerable detail on this  process on page 187  of  The Occult Movement in the 19th Century:

"If a man has a dread of really exact thinking and yet   wishes to enter the  spiritual world, well, he may  succeed  in  doing so [by means of cultivating the will to kill] - he  crosses the Threshold and  lives in the realm of the powers  of  destruction.   When he comes back again  into his body,  he has  entered into an  alliance with these destructive  beings   AND KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT because  he  has  not developed his intellect in the  right way.  He  will then  feel these  beings within him - and instead of   thinking,  instead of his ears hearing and  his eyes  seeing, all kinds  of hidden  powers in the lower  organism [lowest  levels of  the soul] begin to hear  and  see.  THE BODY IS NO LONGER  HIS OWN  in  the sense it was before.  On coming  back  again into the body he finds it filled  with all sorts of  ingredients.   It is  something new to him.
"This entry into one's own body as into  something unfamiliar and containing  unknown elements is an   experience that  may befall those who do not keep  faithfully to the right path [of initiation].  For Ahriman   strives to  establish himself in the human  body and to  transform  certain organs [of  the lowest levels of the soul]  into   organs of knowledge.  Lucifer, however,  incites his  fiery spirits of will ["will  demons"] to take certain forces  out of  us in order to make these forces independent.  And  so if we cross the  Threshold in  the direction of Lucifer's   realm [i.e. toward  mysticism] and come  back into the  body, we feel as  if certain  parts are hollow, as if  something has  been  taken out of us.  Ahriman ADDS   something, because  as he enters into us  he fills the  organs.  Lucifer  TAKES AWAY  organs, makes what was  otherwise  part  of our own organism, independent of us."  [emphasis added]
A+, L-
There are a couple of points in the  above quotation  which  I would like to emphasize.  One is that once a  person  crosses the Threshold without  undergoing  the arduous  preparation  required to do so safely  (which not  everyone  can do in their current  incarnation, for various reasons),  they  become  possessed, and even when the  process  which  allowed them to become possessed ceases, they  are  still  possessed BUT THEY DON'T KNOW IT,  although they  feel different.  They  become a  different class of being,  which  is controlled from  below like a puppet  by beings  whose purpose is to  destroy.

As the twig is bent, so grows the tree

Many aspects of pop "culture"  are apparently intended to  gradually transform the  minds of  impressionable  youngsters so  that they become  open to they types of   activities leading to  possession.  Essentially, anything  which tends to cultivate either a neutral or positive  attitude toward harming humans falls into this category.   Note, for example, the connection between video  games  which simulate killing and violent behavior in the real  world.  The literature of the organizations which produce  some of these games is riddled with Satanic overtones.  

EIR has extensively covered what it  calls "the New   Violence," which is  closely related to mind control and   demonic possession.  Links to many of  these articles can  be found at the  American Almanac New Violence page.


[1] This article replaces "From Nintendo Ace to Pokemonic Possession,"  which I once considered to be adequate to convey the  essential concepts of becoming demonically possessed.   However, after leaving it for a couple of years and coming  back to it, I realized how embarrassingly bad it was and  had to rewrite the entire thing.  My apologies to anyone who tried to make sense of it.


From Nintendo Ace to Pokemonic  Possession

  The intent of this article is to provide  some reliable  information about the  nature of demonic possession  and the  essence of a couple of the means by  which  it is brought about.  It should be  considered as a  possible motive in cases  of coldblooded, calculated  murder for  its own sake, and in "people" who   deliberately lie in order to cause massive  death and  destruction.
-
  "If, as the result of certain teachings  having been  imparted to him without  the requisite caution  [preparation] a  man comes into contact with certain   destructive beings behind the veil of  nature [i.e. the  "veil" is what we  consider to be the material world],  he  will become one who values nothing in  the world,  and it will soon be apparent  that he takes actual  pleasure in  destruction - which need not necessarily   be destruction of external things.  Many  men to  whom this has happened have  shown that they take  pleasure in  tormenting and oppressing other souls.    These are the characteristics which  come into  evidence.  But it can never  be said that men who  have such traits  owing to their alliance with Ahrimanic   [Satanic] elementary beings, are  invariably egotistic.   They need not, and  usually are not, egotists.  They  act out  of an urge quite different from that of   egotism.  They act out of a lust for  destruction, and  they destroy without  the slightest benefit accruing to   themselves.  The beings into whose  sphere a man  enters are essentially  beings of destruction, and the  tempt  him, lure him, to destroy."
                      Rudolf Steiner, from p  161 of a collection of his  lectures  entitled The Occult Movement in 19th   Century (OM19), available from  anthropress.org

The region of destructive spirits into  which a man  may come is disclosed  most clearly of all if a soul is  observed  at the moment of passing through the  gate  of death.  Then these spiritual  beings swirl forward in  their hosts; nor  is this surprising, for they are the  spirits  of destruction.  To work at the  destruction of  the physical organism is  their regular function.   OM19, page 180

The region of Scylla is that of the spirits  who serve  Ahriman.  We come into their sphere if we cultivate,  not egotism, but  the will for destruction.
                                                      OM19, page 164

More and more it will behove men to be  alert to such  moments [when Ahriman  attempts to appropriate  their  intelligence].  For Ahriman takes full  advantage  of moments when, in full  waking life, a man falls into  a state of  vertigo or dizziness, into a kind of  twilight  consciousness, when he feels  not quite securely  anchored in the  physical world and begins to yield   himself to the whirl of the universe,  when he does  not stand firmly and  steadily on his own feet as an   individuality.   These are the moments  when it  behoves him to be on guard, for  it is then that  Ahriman easily gets the  upper hand.                        OM19, p 171

For example, there actually exists in the  world an  [occult] Order which leads men  to knowledge of  these mysterious beings  without any preparation.  In  all such  men, instincts of destruction are  aroused, so  that this order is actually  responsible for sending  human beings  with destructive instincts out into the   world.               OM19, p 157

The particular demons of interest are  "nature  spirits" or "elementals" whose  normal function is the  decomposition of  the physical bodies of plants,  animals,  and humans after death.  They are   "offspring" of very high-ranking  Ahrimanic beings  (Spirits of Form, a.k.a.  Powers) who are "pretending"  to be of a  lower rank, that of the Archai (a.k.a.   Principalities), which are one level  above the  Archangels.  This is what  gives these demons their  extreme  cleverness, which in their case is  dedicated  to destruction and death.

Furthermore, these beings, as Steiner  puts it, have  a "remarkable affinity" for  humans, because the  forces which they  use for thinking are very similar to  those  which correspond to our "sensuous  urges."   Put another way, their highest  forces correspond to  our lowest.  (Twin  Peaks depicted their affinity for  sex and  violence)   They constantly  strive to latch onto this particular  level  of our souls, and thus turn us into their  puppets.

They do this because they are  controlled by  Ahriman, whom Steiner  said is constantly striving to  "strangle"  and seize control of our intellect through   various means.

 Possession is qualitatively different  from the mode  through which higher  Ahrimanic beings influence us.   Steiner  refers to a spiritual "membrane" or   "threshold" consisting of the influence of  spiritual  beings, which normally  prevents these beings from  having any  influence on us.  However, there are   certain avenues, including satanic rituals  and drugs  which induce dizziness, which  can remove this  protection and allow  these demons to link up their  highly  energetic intellect with our "sensuous  urges"  (which serve a good purpose in  their proper context)  and stimulate  them in a destructive direction to a   degree which most people cannot resist.   (This isn't  necessarily overtly  destructive behavior; for  example, it  can consist of manipulating mankind into doing something like destroying Iraq or  the Balkans.)  This gives  them a very  powerful means of controlling us, which   is the definition of possession.  Steiner  goes into  considerable detail on this  process on page 187 of  The Occult  Movement in the 19th Century:

"If a man has a dread of really exact  thinking and yet  wishes to enter the spiritual world, well, he may  succeed in  doing so - he crosses the Threshold and lives in the realm of the powers of  destruction.   When he comes back again  into his body, he has entered into an  alliance with these destructive beings   AND KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT because  he  has not developed his intellect in the  right way.  He  will then feel these  beings within him - and instead of   thinking, instead of his ears hearing and  his eyes  seeing, all kinds of hidden  powers in the lower  organism [lowest  levels of the soul] begin to hear  and  see.  THE BODY IS NO LONGER HIS OWN  in  the sense it was before.  On coming  back again into the body he finds it filled  with all sorts of ingredients.   It is  something new to him.

  "This entry into one's own body as into  something  unfamiliar and containing  unknown elements is an  experience that  may befall those who do not keep   faithfully to the right path.  For Ahriman  strives to  establish himself in the human  body and to transform  certain organs [of  the lowest levels of the soul] into   organs of knowledge.  Lucifer, however,  incites his  fiery spirits of will ["will  demons"] to take certain  forces out of  us in order to make these forces   independent.  And so if we cross the  Threshold in  the direction of Lucifer's  realm [i.e. toward  mysticism] and come  back into the body, we feel as  if certain  parts are hollow, as if something has  been  taken out of us.  Ahriman ADDS  something, because  as he enters into us  he fills the organs.  Lucifer  TAKES AWAY  organs, makes what was otherwise  part  of our own organism, independent of us."
                Rudolf Steiner, OM19 page  187  [emphasis not in orignial]
There are a couple of points in the  above quotation  which I would like to  reiterate.  One is that once a  person  crosses the Threshold without  undergoing  the arduous preparation  required to do so safely  (which not  everyone can do in their current   incarnation, for various reasons), they  become  possessed, and even when the  process which  allowed them to become  possessed ceases, they  are still  possessed BUT THEY DON'T KNOW IT,   although they feel different.  They  become a  different class of being, which  is controlled from  below like a puppet  by beings whose purpose is to  destroy.

In one of the quotes at the top of this  page, Steiner  also indicates that we  "come into their sphere if we   cultivate... the will for destruction,"  which is  apparently one of the purposes  behind the hideous  activities of some  satanic groups, which I suspect  includes  those which are supposedly mind control   programs run by top-secret  governmental agencies  (see The  Ultimate Evil by Maury Terry).

I suspect many aspects of pop "culture"  are  intended to gradually transform the  minds of  impressionable youngsters so  that they become  open to they types of  activities leading to  possession, such as  cultivating the will for  destruction  through cartoons which make heroes out   of humans who live to attack each other  with strange  pets which have magical  powers (Pokemons),  hypnotic video  games which simulate killing and (I  suspect) reprogram the player's will (do  a  web search under "Nintendo" and  "trance," and you'll  find a huge number  of articles which TOUT the  hypnotic  qualities of video games), or a  propensity  for morbid activities such as  "Goth," which has many  of the trappings  of satanism.  The next rung down on  the  ladder from "Goth" would probably be  something  like pop vampirism, and then  finding oneself at an  actual satanic  ceremony drinking actual blood.

...for it is Ahriman's [Satan's] constant and fiercest endeavor to strangle men's individual intelligence and appropriate it for himself, so that it may pass into his power and be used to serve his own purposes.
                         Rudolf Steiner, The Occult Movement in the 19th Century (OM19), p 170

...the Dragonlike serpent-form of Ahriman winds its way among the human beings shining in the astral light, trying to ensnare and embrace them, to draw them down into the realm of half-conscious sleep and dreams.  There, caught in this web of illusion, human beings would become world-dreamers [i.e. they would imagine fantasy-worlds], and in this condition they would be a prey to the Ahrimanic powers.
                                    Rudolf Steiner, The Archangel Michael: His Mission and Ours (TAM), p 220

[H]uman willing is based on wishing: the wish element is always involved.  And Ahriman is continually trying to introduce a personal [i.e. selfish] element into the wishes that motivate our will.  Since this personal bias is concealed in our wishing, the will activity of the human soul is an expression of our cooperation with death [Ahriman is the God of Death].  Instead of letting ourselves be imbued [permeated] by divine ideals that we then carry over into our wishes, and hence into our willing, a personal orientation enters into our wishing and willing.
                                                     Rudolf Steiner, TAM p 133

The region of Scylla is that of the spirits who serve  Ahriman [nature-spirits of destruction, a.k.a. demons].  We come into their sphere if we cultivate... the will for destruction.
                                                                   OM19, page 164

I contend that video games which simulate killing (and which are becoming ever more realistic), combined with "entertainment" and "philosophies" which glamorize violence or devalue human physical life, and certain psychiatric drugs, are part of a literally satanic strategy intended to create mindless violence, and in the extreme, to lead people to the brink of the abyss of demonic possession.  Pop "culture" in general tends to drag people down into animality, but the aforementioned vehicles are the ones which are most often implicated in mindless violence.


Psychiatric Drugs and the Soul

Based on my interpretation of what I have read of Rudolf Steiner's writings, there are several possible explanations for the connection between psychiatric drugs and antisocial behavior.  Taken to the extreme, the attitudes and behaviors engendered by psychiatric drugs can lead to attitudes and behavior which can cause possession, but what's most likely, in my opinion, is that the temporary brain malfunction or permanent brain damage caused by psychiatric drugs is disabling the level of suppression which is necessary to maintain the appearance of sanity in a society designed to drive human egos away from Earth and into the Eighth Sphere.  Since psychiatry is evidently part of this effort (considering its oligarchical origins), psychiatrists must blame individuals for the effects caused by the inhumane society they are helping to create, as well as the drugs they push.

Another possibility is that the weakening of the ego caused by psychiatric drugs allows the  person's thinking and feeling to become intermingled with the unconscious or "sleeping" will ("collective unconscious"), a function of which is to maintain a certain level of antipathy ("anti-sympathy") in order to maintain a certain degree of separation between individuals during life on Earth.  This is necessary in order for us to develop our ego, or free will, although an excessive amount of antipathy is counterproductive.  The experiments conducted by the Scottish "Mengele," Dr. Ewen Cameron, seem to indicate that he was investigating this unconscious or "sleeping" will (see excerpts from the Sun Mystery lecture below). For background on Cameron and some details on his experiments, see EIR's British Psychiatry article (which also reveals the heavy involvement of that magickal smokescreen known as the Scottish Rite in the psychiatric movement).

Additional light is thrown on the relationship between demonic forces and the normal human will in one of the excerpts below, which states that there is an "affinity" between the forces involved in man's "sensual urges" (an aspect of the unconscious will), and the forces of demonic intellect.  This is what I believe Twin Peaks symbolized through the attraction of "Bob" to the sensual nature of humans. This I currently believe is what Steiner calls "the forces of evil" which underlie our physical being and play a part in creating even a proper level of separation between individuals.  I think of these demonic and human forces as normally separated by a thin membrane, like the insulation between the plates of a capacitor.  If a person deliberately stimulates these urges to the point where the membrane breaks down, his sensual urges become connected to, and an extension of, the demonic intellect.


Hatred vs. demonic possession

It is also important to distinguish between someone who is driven by hatred and someone who is possessed.  Being driven by hatred is no great mystery.  Steiner refers to people who have become so steeped in hatred that they have become "world-haters," and indicates that this condition can become very intense, although hatred remains the driving force.  Someone who is demonically possessed, on the other hand, is driven by a being whose very purpose is the destruction of physical bodies, and they attain INSTINCTS of destruction and hatred. Instincts are part of the will, which is below the level of feeling.  A normal human will kill and destroy only as a means to an end, or because he is filled with hatred, but someone who is demonically possessed LIVES for destruction.

I suspect certain murderers to be possessed because of the chilling look in their eyes which betrays not rage, but extreme cunning, a lust for killing, and a lack of remorse. It is especially chilling to see such a look in the eyes of an otherwise attractive young woman, such as a certain case which involved a "snuff film," which is a marker for satanism.  (The films might be intended as evidence of a committing a murder in a certain manner, which might still be required for black magic brownie-points.  I've read that they are sold for large amounts of money, but this could be a cover story.)

There is also non-demonic possession, in which case the person has no particular lust for hands-on destruction, but tends to lie a lot in service of destruction.  For details, see my essay entitled A Kinder, Gentler Sort of Satanic Possession.

Suppressed Drives

One of Steiner's statements which I regard as a key to understanding the strategy of the psychiatric movement is that a "person plunges with his or her unconscious intelligence into regions where these drives are in effect," causing "irrational behavior" (Psychoanalysis and Spiritual Psychology, p61).  I suppose that unconscious intelligence consists of the thoughts which we have suppressed, and which for example block the expression of certain instincts and drives, such as that for power or for love.  I assume this is a function of the ego, and that those who have suppressed the most are one of the groups likely to end up in psychiatric treatment.

However, if our ego or "I" (which normally keeps thinking, feeling, and willing separate in our waking consciousness) becomes weakened (which appears to be a typical effect of psychiatric drugs and sleep deprivation), this subconscious arrangement becomes unglued.  Dr. Peter Breggin, a well-known critic of psychiatry, has identified the higher mental functions, which includes the ego, as that which is undermined by psychiatric drugs.  I tentatively theorize that this uncorks suppressed drives and impulses, sometimes with dangerous effects.

The evidence for the preceding assertions is partly derived from the following quotations from works of Rudolf Steiner. Emphasis has been added except where otherwise indicated:

« In the deep foundations of man's being lies the will. In many respects the will is the most mysterious and secret element in human nature. It is obvious that aberrations, inclinations that often run counter to the world's well-being surge up from fathomless depths of the moral life....
The reason why the will is so mysterious and secret is that in many respects it is a highly indeterminate force; there is in it an instinctive element over which we have little control and which drives us hither and thither on the turbulent waves of life often without our being able to claim that any conscious impulses are [taking] effect. In another respect too, namely in respect of our knowledge of the operations of the will, it has again and again been emphasized that these operations of the will are as withdrawn from human consciousness as the experiences of deep, dreamless sleep; so that in this respect too, the will is an indeterminate, mysterious element.

Two aspects of the will can be distinguished.  There is first of all the will which  unless we are out-and-out idlers  spurs us to activity from the time of waking until that of falling asleep.

The other aspect is that the will is also active in us while we sleep; for then inner processes are taking place, processes that are also operations of the will, only we are not aware of them....

Thus two kinds of will can be distinguished: an inner will and an outer will. The workings of the outer will are made manifest to us while we are awake; those of the inner will take effect while we are asleep.

The will is present as it were in ocean depths of the soul. It surges upwards in waves. But just because we must admit that the will is at work during sleep, when the bodily part of our being is engaged in purely organic activity, neither pervaded with soul nor illumined by spirit, it follows that the will as such has to do with this organic activity. The will that is working while we are asleep has to do with organic activity, inasmuch as organic processes, life-processes take place in us. These processes are essentially connected with the will.

But during waking activity too, that is to say when our will is in flow, life-processes are taking place. The will takes effect in the processes of internal metabolism.

Out of the ocean-depths of will in the human being, waves which come to expression in the form of feeling, surge upwards. We know that feeling is a dimly apprehended experience, that so far as actual consciousness is concerned it has really only the intensity of a dream. But at any rate it is clearer than the workings of will. It raises into greater clarity what lies in the ocean-depths of man's being. Feeling brings a certain light into, intensifies, consciousness; THE TWO POLES OF THE WILL rise into this intensified consciousness and in it both the inner will and the outer will are made manifest.

Thus we distinguish two kinds of feeling, as we did in the case of the will: an inner will in the sleeping state, an outer will in the waking state. One kind of feeling surges upwards from the will that is connected with man's sleeping condition. This kind of feeling lives itself out in the antipathies  taking the word in the widest sense  unfolded by the human being. This is feeling which tends towards antipathy. [In other words, feeling of antipathy (dislike, hatred) are the result of an impulse of the "sleeping" will.]

If the life of soul is studied from this point of view, great illumination will be shed upon it. Waking life arouses in us sympathy with the surrounding world. Our antipathies really come from more unconscious realms. They press upwards from the sleeping will. It is as though our sympathies lie more on the surface, whereas antipathies rise up through them from unplumbed depths. Antipathies repel; antipathies draw us away from the surrounding world; we isolate ourselves, shut ourselves within our own being. Inwardly up-streaming antipathies are the antecedents of human egotism. The greater a man's egotism, the more strongly is the element of antipathy working in him. He wants to isolate himself, to feel enclosed within his own being.

We are gazing here into deep secrets of human experience. If a man unfolds the element of antipathy in his life of feeling so strongly that it plays into his waking life, his whole being is permeated with antipathy which then lays hold of his astral body; his astral body is steeped in the element of antipathy; antipathy streams out from him like an abnormal aura. It may then happen that he begins to feel antipathy to people to whom his attitude was otherwise neutral, or indeed even to those he loved or knew intimately. These conditions can give rise to persecution mania in all its forms. WHEN FEELINGS OF ANTIPATHY NOT TO BE EXPLAINED BY OUTER CIRCUMSTANCES ARE EXPERIENCED, THIS IS DUE TO THE OVERFLOWING ANTIPATHIES IN THE SOUL, THAT IS TO SAY, TO AN ABNORMAL INTENSIFICATION OF THE ONE POLE IN THE LIFE OF SOUL WHICH FORCES ITS WAY UPWARDS OUT OF SLEEP. If this antipathy gets the upper hand in a human being, he becomes a world-hater, and such hatred can assume incredible proportions. The aim of all education and all social endeavor should be to prevent human beings from becoming world-haters.

We [humans in general] have no knowledge at all of how this inner will permeates our limbs, our entire organism. The most that can be said is that now and then, through strange dreams, something comes up into the consciousness of what lies in the will that works in our organism during sleep. WHAT LIVES IN THIS WILL LIES  AND RIGHTLY SO FOR THE ORDINARY CONSCIOUSNESS  ON YONDER SIDE OF THE THRESHOLD. HE WHO COMES TO KNOW IT, LEARNS TO KNOW THE FORCE BY WHICH THE HUMAN BEING CAN BE LED TO THE UTTERMOST EVIL.

Let it be remembered that nothing in the world is in itself evil or good. What is radically evil when it breaks into our conscious life, is the counterbalance for our spent life-forces [which is good] when it takes effect in its right place, namely as the regulator of organic activity during the sleeping state.

If you ask: What is the nature of the forces which make compensation for the spent life-forces?  the answer is: They are the forces of evil. Evil has its mission  and it is here.

Twin Peaks": Savage breasts, or the savage Beast?

One interpretation of "Twin Peaks" is  that it's a banal allusion to the typical  male fixation, but another popped into  my head just the other day, which is  that it's a subtle allusion to the horns of  "the devil," i.e. the Beast, Sun Demon,  or the Anti-Christ.  Some of my reasons  for suspecting this are given below.

Firstly, the title contains nine  characters, and nine is a number  associated with black magic, since the  ninth, innermost layer of Earth is the  source of the forces utilized by black  magicians:

This last [9th, central layer of Earth] is  composed of a substance endowed with  moral action. But this morality is the  opposite of the one that is to be  elaborated on the earth. Its essence, its  inherent force, is one of separation, of  discord, and of hate. It is here in the hell  of Dante that we find Cain the  fratricide. THIS SUBSTANCE IS THE  OPPOSITE OF EVERYTHING WHICH  AMONG HUMAN BEINGS IS GOOD AND  WORTHY. The activity of humanity in  order to establish brotherhood on the  earth diminishes the power of this  sphere. It is the power of Love which will  transform it inasmuch as it will  spiritualize the very body of the Earth.  THIS NINTH LAYER REPRESENTS THE  SUBSTANTIAL ORIGIN OF WHAT APPEARS  ON EARTH AS BLACK MAGIC, that is, a  magic founded on egoism. [1] [emphasis  added]

Stimulating hatred increases this force,  which is one of the reasons black  magicians spend so much time contriving  conflicts.  The Straussian/Synarchist  smokescreen for this activity ("purgative  violence") is that without perpetual war  contrived by arbitrarily defining groups  of people as evil and waging war upon  them, mankind would lose its identity.

In another lecture [2], Rudolf Steiner  refers to "rays" which connect Earth's  layers to its surface.  The "evil in these  woods" surrounding Twin Peaks,  symbolized by the "portal" to the Black  Lodge, is possibly the location where one  of these rays contacts the surface, and  thus a likely location where black  magicians would, in the words of Twin  Peaks' evil character Windom Earl,  cultivate evil for its own sake, because  of the access afforded by such a location  to these forces.

The following excerpt also supports my  suspicion that "Twin Peaks" is a  reference to the "two-horned" Beast:

Three beasts are mentioned in  Apocalypse: a great red dragon in heaven  with seven heads, ten horns, and seven  crowns;  a beast from the sea with seven  heads, ten horns, and  ten crowns - this  beast was like a leopard with bear's feet  and a lion's mouth; and a beast from the  earth, with two horns which looks like a  lamb but speaks like a dragon.

Sorath, however,  is more than the  spiritual principles of  expansion and  contraction, of strength and wisdom,  represented by Lucifer and Ahriman  respectively. He does not enter into  physical incarnation; he remains as  spiritual shadow. He is that Being which  seeks to lead Man  specifically into black  magic.  What is black magic ultimately?  It is the effort to work against the plan  of the good Gods for humanity and the  Earth, to prevent the Earth from  reuniting with the Sun, thus preventing  the future respiritualisation of the  Earth. Black magic is therefore the very  inverse of love; it is the process of  involution taken to an extreme of  contraction in matter. One of its manifestations is a delight in causing  physical pain and suffering – (Windom Earle?). [3]

This latter characteristic is shared by  those who have become demonically  possessed, and anyone with a passing  familiarity with Twin Peaks will  recognize this theme.

Lucifer's activity in the human soul that caused the Fall
  The Genesis account of Lucifer tempting Adam and Eve with knowledge is a hint of how "our eyes were opened," in two senses of the phrase: God used Lucifer to give us our intelligence, and it is only because of Lucifer's influence that light became visible. The following quotations from Steiner's works provide some detail on these processes, starting with outer light.  

Whenever we direct our occult vision to a fixed star, we first of all encounter the normal Spirits of Wisdom. The whole heavens would be invisible to physical sight and only visible to clairvoyant consciousness if none but these normal Spirits of Wisdom were active; but everywhere Luciferic spirits are mingled with the normal Spirits of Wisdom, and bring physical light of its own into the world of the fixed star. When at night the starry heaven is illuminated, Phosphorus actually works down upon us from countless points ["a thousand points of light"]: and everywhere in the universe we find the possibility of formation only through the cooperation of the opposing forces; through the combined working of the normal spirits of the hierarchies with those who are rebels  that is, those who have remained behind. Unillumined to physical eyes but visible to spiritual sight, is the starry world through the normal Spirits of Wisdom; it became luminous to physical eyes, it is revealed in Maya [the illusion we consider to be the real world] through Lucifer or the Luciferic spirits who are, and must be, active everywhere. [15]

Now, on to the somewhat more complex subject of "inner light":

The superhuman entities previously mentioned, the leaders in the field of love ["moon gods"], had already been so perfect on the preceding planet that they did not have to [incarnate].
  [A]t the beginning of the formation of the earth, [the luciferic beings] were further advanced than men, but still were at the stage where knowledge must be acquired through inner organs. These beings were in a special position. They were too far advanced to pass through the physical human body [i.e. they could not incarnate], male or female, but on the other hand, were not [sufficiently advanced to] act through full clairvoyance like the leaders of love. They could not yet be beings of love, [but] they could no longer be "men." Thus they could only continue their own development as half superhuman beings, in which they were aided by men. They could speak to creatures with a brain in a language which the latter could understand. [Translation might be a good analogy, as implied below.] Thereby the human soul energy which was turned inward was stimulated, and could connect itself  with knowledge and wisdom [like a translator connects people who speak different languages]. It was thus that wisdom of a human kind first appeared on earth.
  The "half superhuman beings" mentioned above could use this human wisdom in order to achieve for themselves that of perfection which they still lacked. In this manner THEY BECAME THE STIMULATORS OF HUMAN WISDOM. One therefore calls them bringers of light (Lucifer).

[T]he creation of the understanding is related to the activity of the sun. The dawn of the understanding in human nature is the lighting up of an inner sun. This is said not only in a metaphorical, but also in a quite real sense. When the epoch of the fire mist had ebbed from the earth, these spirits found within man an opportunity to resume their activity connected with the sun.
  It now becomes clear whence the name Lucifer, that is, "the bearer of light," originates, and why these beings are designated as "sun gods" in mystery science. [16]
               
One must be quite clear about the fact that only later did man assume the dense substantiality which he has today, and that he did this very gradually. If one wants to form an idea of his corporeality on the level of development which is being discussed, one can best do this by imagining it as similar to water vapor or to a cloud suspended in the air. But of course this idea approaches reality in a completely external way. For the fire cloud "man" is internally alive and organized. In comparison to what man became later, however, one must imagine him at this stage as in a state of soul slumber, and as only very dimly conscious. Everything which can be called intelligence, understanding, reason is lacking in this being.

[Eons pass between the preceding and the following]

[Luciferic] beings now acquire power over this upper half ["head"]. In earlier stages of their development, these beings advanced further than men, but not as far as the moon gods. They could not exercise their power in the fire mist [as could the moon gods]. But now that something they themselves had lacked previously [the capacity to understand] has been formed in the human organs of understanding through [the influence of the higher beings on] the fire mist, their time has come.
  At an earlier time [before the fire mist came into being], the moon gods had attained an understanding capable of acting externally [on, for  example, the fire mist].... They could act externally on the things of earth. [But] the lower beings we have just mentioned had not attained such an understanding which acts outwardly. Therefore, the time of the fire mist found them unprepared [to influence it].
  Now, however, [a capability to understand] is present. It exists in men. These beings seize upon this human understanding in order to act on the things of earth by means of it.  [Elsewhere, Steiner indicates that our urge to create is a luciferic tendency, whereas the urge to destroy is satanic.]
   Thus man comes under a double leadership [Love and Wisdom]. In his lower part he is under the power of the moon gods; in his developed personality, however, he comes under the leadership of those entities which are summed up under the name "Lucifer," the name of their regent.
  The Luciferic gods thus complete their own development by making use of the awakened human powers of understanding....  At the same time they give man the predisposition to freedom, to the discrimination between "good" and "evil."
  While it is true that the human organ of understanding has been formed entirely under the leadership of the moon gods, these gods would have left it to slumber; they were not interested in making use of it [because] they possessed their own powers of understanding. In their own interest, the Luciferic beings were concerned with developing the human understanding and directing it toward the things of earth [which opened us up to Ahriman's/Satan's influence]. Thereby for men THEY BECAME THE TEACHERS OF ALL THAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY THE HUMAN UNDERSTANDING. But they could not be anything more than stimulators.... With their guidance man had to learn to find the laws of his being. Under Lucifer's leadership he himself had to become as "one of the gods." [17]
             
We are able to understand each other as easily as we do only because the Luciferic powers gave us this common intelligence.  Intelligence - this Luciferic spirituality - came into being because Michael [acting on behalf of God] imbued humanity with Luciferic influences....  [L]uciferic spirituality, which we think of as our intelligence, is widely consdered today as the most distinctive characteristic." [18]
                     
The following quotations are from Evil, a collection of lectures by Steiner :

"Ever since the Lemurian epoch ... [luciferic] forces made our inner life the focal point of their attack, by infiltrating our desires, impulses, and passions.  There were two consequences of this:  we were able to become free ... [from] the sway of divine, spiritual beings....  But ... we also had to accept our potential for evil arising through our passions, emotions and desires." p 100

Lucifer's influence was primarily one towards freedom, enabling [mankind] to overcome a passive submission to random external powers, allowing them ... a capacity for acting independently. p 103

But ... [Lucifer's] influence ... dragged them down ... [and] made their desires and actions, their whole being in fact of a lower nature than it would have been [otherwise]." p103

"How, then, does the luciferic influence act?  It penetrates into the astral body and is thus able to work upon all three 'bodies' of the human being - astral, etheric and physical....  In the etheric it brings about IMPULSES OF FALSEHOOD AND LYING." P103, emphasis added

"[T]hrough Lucifer there arises selfishness [egotism] in the astral body, lying and FALSEHOOD in the etheric body, and SICKNESS AND DEATH in the physical body." p 104

"The ahrimanic influence is therefore a result of the luciferic: Lucifer takes possession of [i.e. penetrates and influences] us from within, and we are as a result susceptible to attack from without [by beings from Ahriman's subphysical realm]. p 100

This will hopefully provide some idea of how we obtained what we call intelligence.  There is much more to it, but the upshot for purposes of this section is that Lucifer is associated with wisdom, knowledge, freedom, egotism, falsehood, sickness, and death.  Keep these traits in mind for later.
  Lucifer incarnated in approximately 3000 B.C. into a Chinese nobleman, who then became a teacher. [19]  So, not only was he involved in giving us our reason and free will, but he also provided mankind with what Steiner calls, on the same page, "the pre-Christian, pagan culture which still survived in the gnosis of the earliest Christian centuries."  

Introduction: Don't Give Us That Old Time Religion, or "Christian" Fundamentalism, Constant Lying, and Other Aspects of Black Magic


Now this cosmic wisdom, which was intrinsically not evil but held holy secrets hidden within it, was carefully concealed by the initiates of Taotl. It was communicated to no one who had not been initiated correctly by the Taotl method. When a candidate had been initiated in the correct way, the teaching concerning the secrets of the cosmos was then imparted to him. NOW, IT WAS NECESSARY FOR HIM TO RECEIVE THESE SECRETS THROUGH INITIATION IN A QUITE DEFINITE MOOD OF SOUL. HE HAD TO FEEL IN HIMSELF THE INCLINATION AND DESIRE TO APPLY THEM ON EARTH IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY WOULD SET UP THAT MECHANISTIC RIGID REALM OF DEATH. It was thus that he had to receive the secrets. Nor were they communicated except on one special condition. THE WISDOM WAS IMPARTED TO NO ONE  WHO HAD NO PREVIOUSLY COMMITTED A MURDER IN A PARTICULAR MANNER.  (prêtres babyloniens devaient avoir deux identités) Moreover, only certain secrets were communicated to the candidate after the first murder, but further and higher secrets were imparted to him after he had committed others.

These murders, however, had to be committed under quite definite conditions. The one to be murdered was laid out on a structure that was reached by one or two steps running along each side. This scaffold-like structure, a kind of catafalque, was rounded off above and when the victim was laid upon it, he was bent strongly back. This special way of being bound to the scaffold forced his stomach outward so that with one cut, which the initiate had been prepared to perform, it could be cut out.

THIS KIND OF MURDER ENGENDERED DEFINITE FEELINGS IN THE INITIATE.
SENSATIONS WERE AROUSED THAT MADE HIM CAPABLE OF USING THE WISDOM
LATER IMPARTED TO HIM IN THE WAY THAT HAS BEEN INTIMATED ABOVE. When the stomach had been excised, it was offered to the god Taotl, again with special ceremonies. The fact that the initiates of these mysteries lived for the quite specific purpose that I have indicated to you, imparted a definite direction to their feelings. When the candidates to be initiated had matured on this path and had come to experience its inner meaning, they then learned the nature of the mutual interaction between the one who had been murdered and the one who had been initiated. THROUGH THE MURDER, THE VICTIM WAS TO BE PREPARED IN HIS SOUL TO STRIVE UPWARD TO THE LUCIFERIC REALM, WHEREAS THE CANDIDATE FOR INITIATION WAS TO OBTAIN THE WISDOM TO MOULD THIS EARTHLY WORLD IN SUCH A WAY THAT SOULS WOULD BE DRIVEN OUT OF IT. Through the fact that a connection was formed between the murdered and the initiated  one cannot say "murderer," but "initiated"  IT WAS MADE POSSIBLE FOR THE INITIATED TO BE TAKEN WITH THE OTHER SOUL; THAT IS, THE INITIATED COULD HIMSELF FORSAKE THE EARTH AT THE RIGHT MOMENT [a sort of "Rapture," to escape hellish machine-like society he helped to create - perhaps what Pink Floyd meant by The Machine].

These mysteries, as you will readily admit, are of the most revolting kind. Indeed, they are only in accord with a conception that can be called ahrimanic in the fullest sense. [1]

The Nature and Goals of Black Magic

To explain the goals of black magic, it is necessary to introduce the ultimate projects of Satan (more properly known as "Ahriman") and Lucifer.  This goal is an Earth ruled by Ahriman, devoid of the higher souls of humans, and an "extra" planet known as the Eighth Sphere, ruled by Lucifer, to which the souls have escaped.  Ultimately, this is intended to prevent mankind from becoming what God hopes we will become.  This diabolical duo cooperates with each other so intricately to achieve their separate ends that they are almost always confused with each others, and there are few if any purely Luciferian or Satanic groups.

Le Beast

Another being known as the Beast, Sorath, and "666" (the numerical equivalent of the Hebrew spelling of "Sorath") has exerted its influence on mankind at intervals of 666 years, although there have been exceptions, such as WWII, during which the Beast played Hitler, so to speak. Anthroposophical writer Terry Boardman, in his article entitled Aspects of  the Occult Significance of the Year 1998 [2], provides an excellent description of this being, which includes the following:

It is important to understand that Sorath is not Ahriman, the spiritual inspirer of modern materialism. Rudolf Steiner spoke of Sorath before Ahriman:  Sorath on  27 April 1907 (GA96 untranslated) and 21 Oct 1907 (GA101 typescript Z306) (3) and Ahriman for the first time on 1 Jan 1909. SORATH STANDS BEHIND AHRIMAN AND LUCIFER AS CHRIST'S SHADOW, INSPIRING THEM.

In a lecture of 27.4.1907 (6) the power of the Lamb, the Sun Intelligence, is said to call forth life from out of the earth and works in plants, animals, and Man, whereas  the opposing power, called in that lecture the Sun Demon,  is said "to work in the evil forces of Man".

Rudolf Steiner indicated 1933 as the  rise of the Beast. Immediately before the approach of  the Etheric Christ in 1933-5, humanity would have to face the  appearance of the Beast from the abyss (20.9.24 GA346). There followed 12 years of hellish destruction greater than ever before or since. These years were dominated by the motif of the false Sun motif.  [2][emphasis added]

This seems to imply that Sorath is a very high-ranking being, higher than Lucifer, Ahriman, or the Asuras.

Michael Kalisch, in his introduction to a book entitled Evil (a selection of lectures by Steiner), also provides important insights into the nature of the Beast:

[T]he threefold adversarial influences [Lucifer, Ahriman, and a group of beings known as the Asuras] WILL UNITE [in what is] described as the "Beast with Two Horns," whose occult number is "666."  THE EFFECT OF THIS BEING IS ONE OF HARDENING EGOTISM; NOT OF LOVING THE WORLD BUT OF SQUEEZING IT TO THE VERY LAST DROP TO GAIN AS MUCH ADVANTAGE AND ENJOYMENT FROM IT AS POSSIBLE.  THAT IS ALSO THE PATH OF BLACK MAGIC WHICH IS THE ONE THIS "BEAST" WISHES TO LEAD US DOWN. [emphasis added] [3]

[Rev A] Who epitomizes this egotism and "squeezing," but the oligarchy?  This and numerous other bits of circumstantial evidence indicate that it is among the oligarchy where one would find the highest concentration of black magicians. [end of revision]

[In recent times] ... polar opposite tendencies ["ice cold logic" and "passions and drives"] in the human being are melting down and becoming fused together without any mediating, central realm [the heart, the realm of Christ]....  We can see ... on the one hand an intensifying, self-realizing egohood, and on the other its reverse, the intensified evil which surrounds us on all sides (and which we also create ourselves).   Our increasing consciousness of self is not by itself evil; it all depends on how the ego handles the forces available to it....  We can continue to go down the road of separation ... or ... we can be begin to broaden our separated consciousness....   The first path ... will unleash forces of hatred and destruction to an increasing extent.... The beings who are active in such a conflict ... [are] called Asuras.... [They are] AN INTENSIFICATION AND PERMEATION OF THE LUCIFERIC-AHRIMANIC POLARITY.  THERE IS, THEN, ALSO A TRINITY OF EVIL.... [emphasis added] [4]

The Asuras: The Beast's Third Wave

Rudolf Steiner mentioned another perspective on the Asuras in another lecture:

In certain occult teachings the hosts of Ahriman are also called the Asuras. These are of course, the evil Asuras who at a certain time fell away from the evolutionary path of the Asuras who endowed man with personality. It has already been indicated that these are spiritual Beings who detached themselves from the evolution of the earth before the separation of the sun. [5]

In the aforementioned article, Terry Boardman  writes that Sorath is "related to Sura and Asura, Ahura."  Considering that his effect is on the ego, and that, as Steiner relates in the following excerpt, the class of beings known as Asuras also works on the ego, there is a good case for classifying the Asuras as a yet another subsidiary of Sorath, along with Lucifer and Ahriman.  The Advent of Ahriman suggests that he could be their leader, which conflicts with the above quotation from Steiner, indicating the Beast's paradoxical nature.  He was at least the chronological leader of the forces which attack the ego, since he first influenced mankind in the year 666, and as indicated by the following  excerpt, the Asuras had just begun their assault in Steiner's time:

And in the age now approaching, those spiritual Beings known as the Asuras (see Note 1) will creep into the consciousness soul and therewith into the human 'I' or ego  for the 'I' lights up in the consciousness soul. The Asuras will generate evil with a far mightier force than was wielded by the Satanic powers in the Atlantean epoch or by the Luciferic Spirits in the Lemurian epoch....
  [T]hese Asuric Spirits WILL PROMPT WHAT HAS BEEN SEIZED HOLD OF BY THEM - NAMELY THE VERY CORE OF MAN'S BEING, THE CONSCIOUSNESS SOUL TOGETHER WITH THE 'I' - TO UNITE WITH EARTHLY MATERIALITY. Fragment after fragment will be torn out of the 'I', and in the same measure in which the Asuric Spirits establish themselves in the consciousness soul, man must leave parts of his existence behind on the earth. What thus becomes the prey of the Asuric powers will be irretrievably lost. Not that the whole man need become their victim  but parts of his spirit will be torn away by the Asuric powers. These Asuric powers are heralded to-day by the prevailing tendency to live wholly in the material world and to be oblivious of the reality of spiritual beings and spiritual worlds. True, the Asuric powers corrupt man to-day in a way that is more theoretical than actual. To-day they deceive him by various means into thinking that his 'I' is a product of the physical world only; they hue him to a kind of theoretic materialism. But as time goes on  and the premonitory signs of this are the dissolute, sensuous passions that are becoming increasingly prevalent on earth  they will blind man's vision of the spiritual Beings and spiritual Powers. Man will know nothing nor desire to know anything of a spiritual world. More and more he will not only teach that the highest moral ideals of humanity are merely sublimations of animal impulses, that human « thinking is but a transformation of a faculty also possessed by the animals », that man is akin to the animal in respect of his form and moreover in his whole being descends from the animal  but he will take this view in all earnestness and order his life in accordance with it.
  Man does not as yet entirely base his life on the principle that his true being descends from the animal. But this view of existence will inevitably arise, with the result that men will also live like animals, will sink into animal impulses, animal passions. AND IN MANY THINGS THAT NEED NOT BE FURTHER CHARACTERIZED HERE, MANY THINGS THAT IN THE GREAT CITIES COME TO EXPRESSION IN ORGIES OF DISSOLUTE SENSUALITY, WE CAN ALREADY PERCEIVE THE LURID, HELLISH GLARE OF THE SPIRITS WE CALL THE ASURAS. [6] [7] [8]

A Hint of Satan's Fake Apocalypse?

Intriguingly, Boardman also indicates that we live in time which "prefigures" the true Apocalypse, which is thousands of years in the future:

"Rudolf Steiner also shows that the events of the Apocalypse of St. John refer not exclusively to the present time, as many believe, but rather, to the last period of the seven great stages of earth evolution, which lies far in the future. However, there is a sense in which our own time is a kind of prefiguring of that distant epoch. A  resonance of that time occurs, when humanity is faced with  the choice between the two-horned beast and the Lamb." [10]

I suspect that this "prefiguring" corresponds to what I have called "Satan's fake apocalypse." Boardman's article even states that Ahriman's incarnation is "imminent."

Additional Characteristics of Black Magic

The following are excerpts from Inner Impulses of Evolution by Rudolf Steiner which in my opinion would help most people to understand the true nature of black magic, and to recognize its influences around them.  Some of the following overlaps with the material in my "Deep Background" section, but it pertains more to the goals and activities of black magic rather than its historical metamorphosis.  In them, Steiner refers to the Mexican Mysteries which were formed by a group of former Atlanteans:

When the Atlantean spoke of his "Great Spirit," he expressed it, as we have seen, in a word that sounded something like the word "Tao," which is still preserved in China. AN AHRIMANIC, CARICATURED COUNTERPART APPEARED IN THE WEST AS OPPONENT OF THE "GREAT SPIRIT TAO" BUT HE WAS STILL CONNECTED WITH HIM. He worked in such a way that he could only be made visible through atavistic, visionary perception but WHENEVER THEY DESIRED HIS PRESENCE, HE ALWAYS SHOWED HIMSELF TO THOSE PERSONS CONNECTED WITH THE WIDESPREAD MYSTERIES OF THIS CULT SO THEY COULD RECEIVE HIS INSTRUCTIONS AND COMMANDS. [This distinguishes black magician from the typical satanist, who, if part of an organized movement, is directed by black magicians, and not directly, at least consciously, from the spirit world.] THIS SPIRIT WAS CALLED BY A NAME THAT SOUNDED SOMETHING LIKE TAOTL. Taotl was thus AN AHRIMANIC DISTORTION OF THE "GREAT SPIRIT"  a mighty being and one who DID NOT DESCEND TO PHYSICAL INCARNATION. A great many men were initiated into the mysteries of Taotl but the initiation was of a completely ahrimanic character. IT HAD A QUITE DEFINITE PURPOSE AND GOAL, WHICH WAS TO RIGIDIFY AND MECHANIZE ALL EARTHLY LIFE, INCLUDING THAT OF HUMANS, TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT A SPECIAL LUCIFERIC PLANET, WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN REFERRED TO IN THESE STUDIES, COULD BE FOUNDED ABOVE EARTHLY LIFE. THE SOULS OF MEN COULD THEN BE DRAWN OUT TO IT, BY FORCE AND PRESSURE. [For example, to escape the possibility of having to hear Rap "music" ever again or drive our ego-mobiles through rush hour traffic.]

The goal they aimed to achieve was TO MAKE THE WHOLE EARTH A REALM OF DEATH, IN WHICH EVERYTHING POSSIBLE WOULD BE DONE TO KILL OUT INDEPENDENCE AND EVERY INNER IMPULSE OF THE SOUL. In the mysteries of Taotl the forces were to be acquired that would enable men to set up a completely mechanized earthly realm.

TO THIS END, ONE HAD, ABOVE ALL, TO KNOW THE GREAT COSMIC SECRETS THAT RELATE TO WHAT WORKS AND LIVES IN THE UNIVERSE AND REVEALS ITS ACTIVITIES IN EARTHLY EXISTENCE. You see, this wisdom of the cosmos is fundamentally in its wording, always the same, BECAUSE TRUTH IS ALWAYS THE SAME. THE POINT IS, HOWEVER, WHETHER OR NOT IT IS RECEIVED IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT IS EMPLOYED RIGHTLY. [11]

On a related note, Steiner, in The Influences of Lucifer and Ahriman, indicates that Luciferic beings were the source of the ancient secret wisdom of the mysteries, but that because those who received it used it for good:

"In olden times the wisdom needed for the advancement of humanity could be obtained only from a luciferic source; hence the initiates [such as the seven Holy Rishis] were obliged to receive it from that source and at the same time to take it upon themselves the obligation not to yield to the aspirations of the luciferic beings." [12]

The Atlantean Connection

In my essay on the Eight Sphere, I go into greater detail on the nature of human consciousness during early and middle Atlantean times.  This form of consciousness is similar to that which Lucifer wishes to evoke in us.  The following excerpts from lectures by Steiner show that this has been the goal of Lucifer and Satan ever since their servants destroyed Atlantis, and that they've failed so far, which makes them almost as desperate as Alan Dreamspin (the Fed Chairman who disappeared just as it became impossible to hide the implosion of his vast financial bubbles, precisely as LaRouche predicted he would):

BUT IN THIS SAME EPOCH HUMAN BEINGS WILL HAVE TO BATTLE AGAINST ATTACKS OF THE LUCIFERIC AND AHRIMANIC POWERS THAT WILL BE STRONGER THAN THOSE LAUNCHED IN THE DAYS OF GREEK AND ROMAN CULTURE. Again in this later epoch the aim of the luciferic and ahrimanic powers is to alienate the souls of men from earthly life on the one hand, and on the other so to mechanize earthly life itself, TO MAKE ITS OUTER FORM SO ENTIRELY MECHANISTIC, THAT IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE EGO OF MAN TO LIVE IN THE SOCIAL ORDER OF THE EARTH. He would therefore take leave of it to enter a life apart from the earth upon a separate planet.

Lucifer and Ahriman wish, during the post-Atlantean period, TO INTERPOSE THE OLD ATLANTEAN CULTURE EVERYWHERE SO THAT THE FACULTIES IMPARTED BY THE PROGRESSIVE POWERS ARE RENDERED PRIMITIVE [i.e. reason "dumbed down" and free will frustrated] FOR THE FIFTH POST-ATLANTEAN EPOCH AND HUMAN BEINGS WILL DESIRE TO DEPART. The attempt, therefore, consisted in placing everything that developed into a service of a world beyond the earth, as I have indicated. Thus, from two sides, from that of Lucifer and that of Ahriman, the spirit reigning in ancient Atlantean life was to be revived in order that the impulses connected with that ancient life might enter into the evolution of the fifth post-Atlantean epoch.

In order to execute the ahrimanic part of this task, it was necessary for the priests of those ahrimanic Atlantean mysteries to acquire faculties possessing the highest degrees of control and mastery over all the forces of death in earthly working. These forces would have made the earth; together with physical man  for the souls were to depart  into a purely mechanistic realm, a great dead realm in which no ego could have a place.

These faculties would have had to be connected also with mastery of the mechanistic element in everything living, of the mechanistic elements in all life. FOR THIS REASON THESE MYSTERIES HAD TO BE INSTITUTED IN A TRULY DEVILISH FORM BECAUSE SUCH FORCES AS WOULD HAVE BEEN NEEDED FOR THE POWERFUL AIMS OF AHRIMAN CAN ONLY ARISE WHEN INITIATIONS OF A SPECIAL KIND ARE ATTAINED. Such were these initiations of the ahrimanic post-Atlantean era in America.

This cult was dedicated to the successor, the son of the Great Spirit, in the form he had assumed in America, and who was designated by a sound that approximates Taotl. TAOTL IS AN AHRIMANIC DISTORTION OF THE SUCCESSOR OF TAO. This being, Taotl did not appear in a physical body but only in an etheric form. His arts, which were essentially impulses for the mechanization of earthly culture and of all earthly life, were acquired through these initiations I have described to you.  
Now these initiations had a definite purpose. As has been said, the initiate acquired ACTUAL POWERS OF BLACK MAGIC, THE APPLICATION OF WHICH WOULD HAVE LED TO THE MECHANIZATION OF THE CULTURE OF THE EARTH AND TO THE EXPULSION OF ALL EGOS, SO THAT THE BODIES BORN WOULD NO LONGER HAVE BEEN CAPABLE OF BEARING AN EGO.

Vitz-li-putz-li [an ally of Jehovah] fought against [the greatest-ever black magician] and  as already said, this can only be discovered by occult means  in the year 33 A.D. succeeded in causing this mightiest black magician to be crucified. Thus, in the other hemisphere of the earth, an event parallel to the Mystery of Golgotha took place, inasmuch as the greatest black magician of all was crucified by the action of Vitzliputzli who had appeared on the earth for this purpose. As a result, the power of these mysteries was thereby broken so far as the fourth post-Atlantean epoch was concerned. It was subsequently revived [in a weaker form]....

By these means the ahrimanic impulse was inculcated into the etheric nature of the Western world. As I have said, this impulse in the fourth epoch was broken as a result of the crucifixion of the great initiated black magician by the deed of Vitzliputzli. NEVERTHELESS, SO MUCH FORCE REMAINED THAT A FURTHER ATTACK COULD HAVE BEEN MADE UPON THE FIFTH EPOCH, HAVING AS ITS AIM SO TO MECHANIZE THE EARTH THAT THE RESULTING CULTURE WOULD NOT ONLY HAVE CULMINATED IN A MASS OF PURELY MECHANICAL CONTRIVANCES BUT WOULD HAVE MADE HUMAN BEINGS THEMSELVES INTO SUCH PURE HOMUNCULI [a sort of animal-man, or as the oligarchy likes to think of us, a talking animal] THAT THEIR EGOS WOULD HAVE DEPARTED.

Whereas on the one side the campaigns of Genghis Khan [which were facilitated by Venetian Intelligence] and his successors were to have executed as it were a divine justice, on the other side, THERE WAS PREPARED AN ATMOSPHERE OF WILD, AHRIMANIC, ELEMENTAL FORCES INTO WHICH THE EUROPEANS WERE TO ENTER [referring to the discovery of America]. In such matters complete cooperation takes place between Ahriman and Lucifer. [Read the lecture for further details on Khan's luciferic role.]

In the post-Atlantean era, Ahriman strives by direct means to institute a culture of MERE prosperity. This would mean pressing out the lemon [ego], the doing away with it! Egos would no longer be able to live IF PROSPERITY [crass materialism] WERE THE ONLY AIM PURSUED BY CULTURE. In short, prosperity and the good, prosperity and virtue are not concepts that can be substituted for one another. [In other words, materialism must not be an end in itself; it must serve to free us up for higher pursuits.]

We are gazing here into profound secrets of life. A  JUSTIFIED ELEMENT IN THE FOUNDING OF CULTURE, AN ELEMENT THAT INEVITABLY LEADS TO A CERTAIN FORM OF PROSPERITY AMONG MEN, IS SO DISTORTED THAT PROSPERITY PER SE IS SET UP AS THE GOAL.[13]

Boardman describes in greater detail just how Lucifer's and Ahriman's pipe-dream would interfere with our evolution:

!What is black magic ultimately? It is the effort to work against the plan of the good Gods for humanity and the Earth, to prevent the Earth from reuniting with the Sun, thus preventing the future respiritualisation of the Earth. BLACK MAGIC IS THEREFORE THE VERY INVERSE OF LOVE; it is the process of involution taken to an extreme of contraction in matter. One of its manifestations is a delight in causing physical pain and suffering.... [14] »  

Summary

The preceding shows that Lucifer and Ahriman are intricatedly working together for separate ends: an Earth without higher souls for Ahriman to rule, and a new planet (the Eighth Sphere) for the souls, ruled by Lucifer.  Ahriman's artificial apocalypse is actually just a step toward achieving this ultimate agenda, and understanding it will help you to see the influence of black magic in modern society, even behind seemingly Christian organizations.

Rudolf Steiner on "natural" demonic possession

"The other beings, the demons created out of immoral actions, also have an astral body, an etheric body and a physical body, at the watery stage, of course, but they do not have the basis for developing an ego. They are born headless, as it were. Instead of taking up the basis for progressing along a regular evolutionary path to the Jupiter existence, they reject this basis. By doing so they condemn themselves to the fate of dropping out of evolution. But this only increases the hordes of luciferic beings, for they fall under their power. As they cannot progress in a regular way they have to become parasites. This is what happens to all the beings who reject a normal evolution; they have to attach themselves to others in order to move on. Beings who arise through immoral actions have the particular inclination to be parasites in human evolution on earth under Lucifer's leadership - to which they have succumbed - and to seize hold of the evolution of human beings before they make their physical entry into the world. They attack human beings during the embryonic stage and share their existence between conception and birth. Some of these beings, if they are strong enough, can continue to accompany the human being after birth, as seen in the phenomena of some children who are possessed.

"What is brought about by the criminal demons attached as parasites to unborn children is the cause of a deterioration in the succession of the generations; it gnaws at human beings, making them less able to develop than they would be if these demons did not exist. There are various reasons for the decline of families, tribes, peoples and nations, but one of them is the existence of these criminal demon parasites during the period mentioned.

"These things play an important part in Earth evolution as a whole, and they bring us into contact with deep secrets of human existence. This is often the cause of people acquiring certain prejudices and points of view even before they are born. So people are tormented by doubts and uncertainties in life, and all kinds of other things, because of these demonic parasites.

"These beings cannot do very much with what human beings develop once their ego makes itself felt, but they prey on them all the more before they are born or during their earliest years. Thus we see that evil actions, too, have a significant effect in the cosmos and work creatively, but their creativity tends in the direction of the Old Moon existence. For what human beings pass through in the embryonic period, when these demonic beings can prey on them, is basically the heritage of the Old Moon evolution, which makes its appearance in all kinds of subconscious, instinctive behaviour. Something stemming from the older and better days of physical science is the instinct it preserves about the human embryonic period not being calculated according to ordinary months but lunar months; science still speaks of ten lunar months, and knows certain other things, too, concerning the connection of embryonic development with the phases of the moon.

"So we see that our Earth evolution contains two tendencies. There are good deeds that contain the impulse to work creatively on Earth in preparation for Jupiter, so that man's successor on the human level can come into being. But evil deeds have also brought into our evolution the tendency to drag Earth back again to the Old Moon evolution and make it dependent on everything to do with subconscious impulses; in fact there are far more of these subconscious impulses in materialistic humanity of modern times than there were in bygone ages when people were less materialistic." (134, pp. 140-142)

page 171 of Rudolf  Steiner's Occult Movement in the Nineteenth  Century (OM19):
"More and more it will behove men to be alert to  such moments [when Satan attempts to  appropriate their intelligence].  For Ahriman takes  full advantage of moments when, in full waking  life, a man falls into a state of vertigo or dizziness,  into a kind of twilight consciousness, when he  feels not quite securely anchored in the physical  world and begins to yield himself to the whirl of  the universe, when he does not stand firmly and  steadily on his own feet as an individuality.    These are the moments when it behoves him to  be on guard, for it is then that Ahriman easily gets  the upper hand."

  Those familiar with Steiner's teachings realize  that Lucifer is not the same being as  Ahriman/Satan, but that they have  complementary influences and work together so  closely that it's easy to confuse them as one.  He  finds a different kind of situation most conducive  to gaining control over people, and that is, from  what I gather, a type of situation where people in  a large group setting allows themselves to  become overly influenced by certain impulses  from the lower levels of the soul, to the point  where  they develop a feeling of being part and  parcel of the group.  At that point, their willpower  is weakened, and Lucifer can grab it.  (OM19, p  172)
  A passage from page 147 of the same book  indicates that people who open themselves to the  influence of Ahrimanic beings become very astute,  very cunning, and very subtle thinkers (which in  many cases is a dramatic transformation).  But  there's a catch:  these beings are "inimical in the  highest degree to man and animal" (note that  Satanists sometimes begin their bloody career by  sacrificing animals).
  On page 180, Steiner adds that the proper  function of the aforementioned Ahrimanic beings  is to destroy the human organism after it dies,  that people with spiritual understanding keep  them at bay, and that they especially afflict  people with a materialstic outlook.  So, a person  who opens himself to their influence essentially   becomes a tool of beings of destruction, and thus  an enemy of our physical life.  I suspect that some  terrorists - and the assassins of Princess Diana -  belong in this category.  
  Steiner goes into considerable detail about the  process by which Satan gains control over souls  on page 157 of OM19.  He states that the type of  forces found in the lowest levels of our souls,  which corresponds to to our "sensuous urges"  (the heightening of which is apparently the goal  of much of the popular culture, including video  games which certain experts claim are designed  to desensitize people to killing) is similar to the  type of force found in the highest levels of these  extremely intelligent Ahrimanic elementary  beings, which corresponds to their thinking.   (These "sensuous urges," by the way, are not the  same thing as the aforementioned impulses which  Lucifer uses to seize human willpower.)
  If a person opens himself up to these beings,  they seize control of him by merging their highest  levels with the aforementioned lower levels of the  human's soul, and apparently by stimulating these  urges to the point where the person cannot resist  them.  Thus, Steiner claims, it is inevitable in such  cases for the person's nature to become  debased, and for him to obtain "instincts of  destruction or hatred, or the like."  Note well that  he says "instincts," which conforms to what he  says on page 187, that people who come into  contact with these beings without the necessary  preparation, and become agents of them, are not  aware of what has happened, although their  bodies will feel different because they can feel  these beings at work in them.  The result might  look, walk, and talk like a human, but it's not - it's  a sort of hand-puppet of subphysical beings, one  of whose primary functions is the destruction of  human bodies.  By gaining control of people, they  insert their influence into the sphere of the living.

Bonjour Druid

Ca m'a l'air bien intéressant tout ça, mais j'avoue ne pas avoir le temps/courage de tout lire d'une traite. D'après ce que je peux trouver sur Rudolf Steiner, il me semble que c'est en effet une des nombreuses pistes à explorer.

Je pense qu'il serait plus profitable pour les autres lecteurs de faire une page/rubrique dans le site sur ce sujet ? Si vous/tu en sentez le courage, je veux bien publier des textes. Ainsi vous pourriez poster ici des résumés et des appels à discussion, et le corps des textes se trouverait sur le site, accessible à tous les visiteurs (nombreux sont ceux qui ne pensent pas venir sur le forum).

Comme vous le sentez...

Je conviens que mes articles envoyés prennent bcp de place. Mais ils méritent d'être lus et je trouve votre proposition excellente. Allez-y, je vous laisse en faire ce que vous voulez. Si vous avez des questions sur l'agencement des textes, n'hésitez pas à me rejoindre. J'ai même quelques mises à jour intéressantes de ces textes et ça vaudrait la peine de les mettre à jour.

En passant, quand j'ai parlé avec LKJ de Steiner elle a dit qu'elle croyait que Steiner s'était laissé berné par son ego. Qu'est-ce que ça a à voir avec la huitième sphère? Elle a même pas commenté ce que je disais sur la 8e sphère. J'ai été déçu. Après ça, après avoir essayé d'envoyer un message en français (avec des accents), j'ai été bloqué du forum comme un espion de bas étage (après 4 essais, le message se rendait toujours pas et j'ai été bloqué). Je ne crois pas que c'est voulu de leur part, n'empêche que le responsable du forum 'Signs of the times' ne m'a jamais répondu... Dommage.

Bonjour Druid,

Je n'avais plus en mémoire qu'il existait un site "Signs of the times". Je ne sais plus qui de nous deux l'a créé en premier, et ça n'a pas beaucoup d'importance, mais en tout cas il n'y a aucun lien entre nous. Le nom "Signes des temps" m'est venu après une recherche d'inspiration de quelques jours... et ce n'est pas forcément très original comme titre. Mais je crois que c'est évocateur, et je vois que beaucoup d'accès au site viennent de recherche de cette formule dans google. Comme quoi, beaucoup de monde s'interroge sur notre époque !

Pour les histoires de droits d'auteur, c'était justement ce qui motivait un peu ma proposition. On peut assez facilement obtenir le droit de copier certaines parties de pages web, en le demandant au propriétaire et en lui proposant de faire des liens vers l'article original. Evidemment, si l'original a disparu c'est un peu plus compliqué... mais du coup le problème du droit d'auteur perd un peu de son sens.

Par contre, je ne compte pas retravailler moi-même les textes que vous avez posté pour l'instant. Je vous proposais plutôt d'en faire une ou plusieurs synthèses afin de mieux les présenter et de donner plus envie aux visiteurs de les consulter en profondeur. Les internautes sont de grands zappeurs, et si on ne leur mache pas un peu le travail, ils ont du mal à se concentrer plus de 5 minutes sur une page. Si par contre on leur résume un peu une situation, une étude, qu'on met en évidence ("Evidences" était un des noms envisagés d'ailleurs) certaines parties d'un document puis qu'en référence on propose de consulter le document dans son intégralité (par un lien vers un autre site, ou par une copie locale)... le taux de pénétration dans les cerveaux sera plus important (ce n'est pas péjoratif, c'est un terme audiovisuel ;-))

Je voulais donc vous proposer de prendre votre temps pour découper un peu ces textes pour en extraire les parties les plus significatives, de nous faire une reformulation et une mise en perspective, de nous expliquer en quoi cela est important pour vous et les implications que vous envisagez. Pas de panique, il n'y a pas non plus besoin de trop argumenter : on peut très bien livrer ses sentiments ou pensées sans pour autant se sentir obligé de tout justifier ou expliquer.

Ensuite, je veux bien faire la relecture, donner des conseils si besoin et enfin publier le tout. J'accepte les documents dans à peu près n'importe quel format, à condition que la mise en forme soit la plus simplifiée possible (gras, souligné, italique, encadrements éventuellement).

Voila, c'est une proposition, et je suis joignable directement sur signes@coza.net !
