Notes on Rudolf Steiner
The small series of lectures from Dr. Steiner greatly impacted farming and helped to balance nature. The spiritual integration of his work could not be ignored. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Steiner realized that he was vulnerable to ridicule and took the steps to certify himself according to the rigorous requirements of his most vocal detractors. It may be the reason many of us are here: we realize how important Spirit is to our existence, science included.
"In pervading the air, this chemical either imparts what lives within it to the air and we become aware of what we call the tone.” (1)
“The air with its vibrating waves is nothing but the outer body of the tone. In the human being , this tone, this “spiritual” tone, is not produced in the air-organism through the moral ideal, but in the fluid organism. The sources of tone, therefore, arise in the fluid organism- etheric body.” (2)
Stimulate the warmth-organism producing in the air-organism sources of Light producing in the fluid-organism sources of Tone producing in the solid-organism seeds of Life (etheric). (3)
Cool down the warmth-organism, paralyze the sources of Light deaden the sources of Tone extinguish Life. (4)
From Secrets of the Soil, by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird: Biodynamic preparations by Steiner used natural composts inoculated with products of certain processed and revivifying herbs.
“These he selected to help microorganisms quickly decompose the raw organic matter of the compost heap into simple compounds, reassembling them into ingredients of a long-lasting, earth-smelling, dark brown, light-textured friable humus, a substance which, because of its colloidal state, holds its structure, resists leaching, helps fix nitrogen directly from the air and increase availability of minerals to plants…” (5)
manure in cow’s horns buried throughout winter months. Quarter cup stirred in 3 gallons of rain water revives 1 acre of land, used in conjunction with regular biodynamic practices: rotation, composting, double digging.
Quartz crystal grounded, buried throughout the summer. A quarter teaspoon in 3 gallons of rain or plain water stirred for 1 hour in alternating motions, is sprayed when appropriate. (Me) Steiner’s process did not include singing in the mix. I propose using the scale but more specifically, using the chakra chant scale with the vowel sounds attributed to the seven main chakras, backwards and forwards.
Yarrow is stuffed in a buck deer’s bladder. This is kept in for several months.
Chamomile is stuffed in a bovine intestine and buried throughout the winter season in a sunny spot.
Stinging nettle is buried in iron netting or peat moss.
Oak tree bark, preferably, white oak, is ground up and placed in the skull of a domestic animal- cow, pig, goat, or sheep. It’s covered in earth under peat moss, irrigated with water until it is covered with slime.
Dandelion stuffed in a cow’s mesentery. The inner side and buried throughout winter months.
Valerian blossoms juice
Garden horsetail- strong tea sprayed on plants and trees in spring and summer to work against molds.
I like the intense energy of the preparations, however throughout reading (since late 1970s) and now, it is known that the earth has been traversed for millions of years by animals. I am not aware that any of this has ever been a problem for vegans. Manure from animals, entrails and other parts used as vesicles for the preps give an energy that draws from all parts. How about the practice of mixing animal blood with soil? Does this violate what vegans believe and practice?
Colloidal state- the state of a solute when its molecules are not present as separate entities, as in a true solution, but are grouped together to form solute “particles” and carry a resultant negative charge (usually). The colloidal state enables the human body membranes directly to absorb essential mineral elements without the need for processing. “Every cell of the human body is made of colloids arranged to form specific functions- colloidal particles are so small and, therefore, such a large surface area- a teaspoon of particles has a surface area greater than a football field…they generate surface energies that have powerful effects on physical and chemical reactions.” (6)
See Energy and the Body.
Henry Coanda the “Coanda Effect” “we are what we drink”...
"When a living organism takes in water it structures it into a composition with a high percentage of octagonal liquid crystals and a very low percentage of unorganized molecules done by high energy colloids. “ Colloidal particles act as tiny ‘seeds’ of energy, charged to attract free-roving water molecules, and thus, form the nuclei of liquid crystals. To do this, the colloid requires a high electrical charge. In living systems, the charge is retained by being protected by a coating of gelatin, albumin, or collagen.” (8)
“Another force causes water molecules to form long complex structures known as hydrogen bonds. These enable water to wet surfaces…a force that can be strengthened or weakened by structuring the water’s internal composition.”
These 2 properties offered info on how to duplicate Hunza water. The potentization of BD 500 is a homeopathic process. The constant stirring is like succession. Colloids do not dissolve. The particles remain suspended oscillating vortices – shrink in diameter. Elongate then “…expand in diameter and shorten in a periodic manner.”
BD 500 gets its energy- hydrogen bonds are subject to such stress like rubber bands- at which point they absorb planetary forces, which, as the molecule snaps back into shape are retained and energize the molecule. Pour crystal water on the seeds.
Multinational corporations are (have been) acquiring seed companies. They patent the strain for resistance to pests and fungi. Some moved into genetic engineering. Monsanto is the biggest offender. The film Food, Inc. showed a farmer being confronted legally for washing his seeds.
