Looking For A Fight
Brad Night, Andrew Linnell, Martin O’Keefe-Liddard, Rosemary McMullen, and any other Anthroposophy and Mechanical Occultism fans …
One of the scientific oddities of the C*o*v*i*d Mystery, is the absence – in public – of scientific argument over fundamental principles. One side hoards the dialogue, the others can’t get a word in edgewise.
I experience a similar quality in the MysTech work. That is to say, if you disagree on a fundamental level, such as that the use of the word “evil” is an error, even tho’ Steiner-sez can be quoted, this challenge to the Official Narrative regarding Anthroposophy and our Technological Future is ignored.
There is no forum in which to discuss the foregone conclusion. The big conference MysTech has is one-sided. People get invited to present, and I do not doubt the value of their various contributions. Still, if I attend I can’t ask questions or challenge what to me are clear mistakes in the arts of thinking as related to the significance and meaning of “electricity”.
Is this in the scientific spirit?
I’ve been thinking about electrical and magnetic phenomena for over three decades. My first article, publish by the Journal of Borderland Sciences, was called: “There is no free energy”. https://borderlandsciences.org/journal/vol/46/n05/Goethe_Space_Field_Phenomena.html
It was based on pure thinking observations, inspired by Ernst Lehr’s Man or Matter, and three writings of George Adams, the forgotten Goethean scientist, who tackled mathematical physics in his 1933 essay: “Space and the Light of Creation”. Out of print of course, this being normal for anthro-publishers, who do a lot of reprints of Steiner lectures, but can’t keep alive the genius of Goethean science as something worthy of its own label.
This is based mostly on the failure to model an interest in science, by A-Society leadership, who worked hard at being scholars of everything RS said, and as a consequence had almost nothing of value to say on technological questions from a more modern point of view, … developed after Steiner died.
My second concentrated pure thinking effort was to look at the relationship between nature and electricity in general, and concerned – in particular – the need to think in wholes, not parts. “Electricity and the Spirit in Nature” http://ipwebdev.com/hermit/electricityandthespiritinnature.html
Having understood the need to rejoin the Emerald Tablet to Anthroposophia, I wrote a series of articles on the relationship of the four elements of antiquity (fire/will; air/intellect; water/feeling; and, earth/consciousness) and the four fundamental forces/transformations of modern physics (gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces).
It is long, but the riddle needed careful and complete investigation. Again, this was an exercise in pure thinking. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2019/05/20/letters-about-magic/
Weaving through these questions was a secondary riddle: What about the Mother? How does She, and the Son and the Father, tied together dancing, create the world?
Following Her lead and inspiration, I came to perceive that electricity was the Father. Not a simple mystery.
One article I wrote was: “Electricity – a devotional and artistic representation” https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/05/14/electricity-a-devotional-and-artistic-representation/
Eventually I was able to put together, again through pure thinking, “The Father at Rest – magical and mystical dark-matter physics in the Age of Technological Chaos.” https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2021/07/15/the-father-at-rest/
This is written for ordinary people on one level. It is about their biography and the freedom they have to individually generate its meaning. It’s about understanding that Nature has a self-aware sentient consciousness, just as to we, and would not mind visits, just keep in mind this is courtship, and both of us are shy … its been awhile.
Its about the names and the naming, and if we deny the assumption of materialistic science, that all is matter there is no spirit, we can assert instead that matter and spirit are reality, if we just attend to our own direct experience.
For example, … a couple true names: Gravity exists as an aspect of the Love of the Mother. Breath exists as an aspect of the Love of the Son. And, Matter exists because of the Love of the Father. We are surrounded by Mystery from moment to moment to moment – the Divine is not somewhere else, They are the very fundamental basis of life and conscious existence.
Understanding the problem of parts and wholes is crucial to separating the wheat from the chaff in the C*o*v*i*d Mystery. Materialistic science was based on the assumption that the causes of the material world would be found in the learning about the smallest “things”. Steiner understood this, and cautioned that we need to discipline our thinking about the Concepts we generated when forming cognitions about “atoms” and “germs & viruses”.
The real problem was the Ideas, and if we didn’t do that right, we will not be able to deal with the biological and technical challenges of the future.
We are here. He is not. Anybody want to engage in a Goethean scientific debate, on the crucial mysteries of the dying and becoming of Western civilization?
