Written in 1909 (CW 13)

"Esoteric technology is the technological know-how of what occurs esoterically, within the feel that it truly is perceived no longer open air in nature yet the place one’s soul turns whilst it directs its internal being towards the spirit. Esoteric technological know-how is the other and counterpart of ordinary science."

Rudolf Steiner

This masterwork of esotericism areas humankind on the very middle of the huge, invisible techniques of cosmic evolution. once we use the time period “natural science,” don’t we suggest that we're facing human wisdom of nature?

Steiner labored and remodeled his Rosicrucian cosmology to make it more and more exact and actual. An define of Esoteric Science is as very important and correct now because it was once whilst first released in 1910 and is still the main accomplished and potent presentation of a non secular substitute to modern, materialistic cosmologies and a strict Darwinian view of human nature and evolution.

In this foundational paintings of religious technological know-how, we see how the construction and evolution of humanity is embedded on the middle of the mammoth, invisible internet of interacting cosmic beings, via whom the alchemical methods of cosmic evolution proceed to conform. incorporated are descriptions of the physical-spiritual make-up of the person; the relationships of the several "bodies" of the individual to sleep and dying; and a close, useful consultant to equipment and routines, together with the “Rose pass Meditation,” by which we will be able to reach wisdom of the non secular worlds.

The so much awesome and progressive element of this paintings is the important functionality that Steiner attributes to the Christ and his involvement in human and earthly evolution during the secret of Golgotha.

Example text

The soul loses itself to other things in feeling and intellect, but as the consciousness soul it takes hold of its own being. That’s why the consciousness soul’s perception of the I can take place only through a certain inner activity. Mental images of outer objects, formed as these objects come and go, work on in our intellect through a power of their own. However, if the I is to perceive itself, it cannot simply surrender itself. In order to be conscious of its own being, it must first use inner activity to lift its being up out of its own depths.

It is not possible to draw a fixed boundary between the changes that take place as a result of the activity of the I in the astral body and those that take place in the ether body, since they blend into each other. If something we learn enhances our faculty of judgment, a change has taken place in the astral body, but if this judgment changes our state of mind so that we become accustomed to feeling differently about a subject after having learned about it, then a change has taken place in the ether body.

Working on the ether body, however, is more intensive than working on the astral body because what is concealed in the ether body is cloaked in two veils, while what is hidden in the astral is cloaked in only a single veil. We can get an idea of the differences in working on each of these two bodies by pointing to certain changes that can take place in us in the course of our development. First, let’s think about how certain soul qualities develop when the I works on the soul, how passion and desire, joy and sorrow may change.
