I just finished reading this whole thread. All I can say is WOW. As a singer, I am especially attracted to the spontaneous singing and dancing, but the whole thing -- the lunar stuff, all of it, has profoundly affected me in a way that I have never experienced before. It is the closest thing to a truly spiritual ecstasy -- outside of rock n roll -- that I have ever seen or experienced first hand.
For me -- this thread was worth the price of admission here, en toto. I owe you all a huge gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In previous articles, I claim that there are signs that one purpose behind the abuse of US "war" prisoners is to experiment with ways to implement the 8th Sphere agenda.
After rereading Rudolf Steiner's descriptions of the conditions which are used for this purpose, and reading additional accounts of the forms of the abuse, I am even more convinced that this is taking place.
It appears that this program is more prevalent in certain locations where the conditions can be more carefully controlled and monitored, and where the psychologists who run it can be hidden more easily - i.e. at Guantanamo and the black sites. In the course of reading articles about this program, I also stumbled onto tantalizing hints of a connection to black magic.
Stewart C. Easton provides an excellent description of the evolution of consciousness intended for us at this time by the progressive spirits.  He in turn recommends the chapter entitled The Adventure of Reason in Man or Matter by Ernst Lehrs. Easton, as Steiner, uses Goethe as a model for this type of consciousness: a meditative consciousness in which we observe an object and allow its conceptual element (the idea behind it, which comes from higher-level spiritual beings) to reveal the object's true nature to us, without imposing our beliefs upon it. In this process, we develop the ability to perceive the etheric realm with our etheric body. The other challenge of this age is to use this new type of perception and thinking to provide solutions to society's problems. Now, back to Inner Impulses of Evolution: We know that this is the age of the development of the consciousness soul and that, to accomplish this, a number of forces soul and bodily forces must be active. FIRST, A CLEAR PERCEPTION OF THE SENSE WORLD IS NECESSARY. THIS DID NOT EXIST IN EARLIER TIMES BECAUSE, AS YOU KNOW, A VISIONARY, IMAGINATIVE ELEMENT CONTINUOUSLY PLAYED INTO THE HUMAN SOUL [a dream-like state in which objects were represented by symbols, although there was a correlation between the symbols and the objects]. THE OTHER TASK IS TO UNFOLD FREE IMAGINATIONS [i.e. perceiving and thinking with the etheric body] side by side with the clear view of [physical] reality in a way, a kind of repetition of the Egypto-Chaldean age. To date, humanity has not progressed too far in this task. Free imaginations as sought through spiritual science means imaginations not as they were in the third post-Atlantean age, but unfettered and undistilled into fantasy [apparently referring to the aforementioned dreamlike state, in which an encounter with an object triggered a vision of a symbol which had been assigned to that object by the higher beings]. It means imaginations in which man moves as freely as he does only in his intellect [referring to the new way of thinking, using ideas derived from the etheric world and thinking with the etheric body]. That, then, is the other task of the fifth post-Atlantean age. The unfoldment of these two faculties will lead to a right development of the consciousness soul in our present epoch.
Here is a speech from some hack i listened to this weekend....He appears honest, but also sounds like he is just spouting off crap he read. But, who knows....
I think you knew that though.
Well I certainly am gifted at shutting down an interesting thread. It appears my above post just blew everyone's #ing minds!
Amazingly, Gurdjieff also held that at the time of this collision a smaller
moon, which he calls Anulios, was created. Some 20 years after his death this
was scientifically verified. The New York Times reported in July 1970:
It has recently been discovered that the Earth and the moon do not make
up an isolated, selfsufficient twobody system, as men have believed for
centuries. Rather, they are part of a threebody system whose third
member is a tiny “quasimoon” only a mile or two in diameter. Toro, as
this third body has been named, wanders around the sun five times in the
time that it takes Earth to make eight circuits. When Toro comes too near
earth—9.3 million miles at the closest point—Earth’s gravity tends to
change Toro’s curvilinear path so that on its next passage it is further
away from Earth; in turn, Earth’s gravity affects this revised path so that
on its following pass it is closer to Earth.
But since I laid a hand thereon
And found a heart of stone
I have attempted many things
And not a thing is done,
For every hand is lunatic
That travels on the moon.
II. Human Dignity
Like the moon her kindness is,
If kindness I may call
What has no comprehension in't,
But is the same for all
As though my sorrow were a scene
Upon a painted wall.
So like a bit of stone I lie
Under a broken tree.
I could recover if I shrieked
My heart's agony
To passing bird, but I am dumb
From human dignity.
Dignity is a term used in moral, ethical, and political discussions to signify that a being has an innate right to respect and ethical treatment. It is an extension of the Enlightenment-era concepts of inherent, inalienable rights.
I believe what you have termed lower dignity might tie in mightily with this concept. Dignity in this sense is predicated upon concealment, a wish to hide the true self from the Other.
In other words, it's just another gimmick to keep us separate rather than Individuated.
