This website will present ideas based on an anthroposophical understanding of the nature of Man and of the worlds in which Man lives.  An 'anthroposophical' understanding means an understanding based on 'the wisdom (sophia) of Man' (anthropos), i.e. the wisdom that IS Man - the wisdom of which Man is made. 

This wisdom is essentially threefold  or, to use an older term, 'trinitarian'. This threefold idea reflects the insight that Man is intrinsically threefold in nature, and, with a ninefold structure (3 x 3) of the human spiritual-physical organism, is placed between the nine dimensions, or 'hierarchies', of the spiritual world and  the ninefold structure of the subterranean regions of the Earth (subnature). This archetypal threefoldness stands in contradistinction to a worldview that sees things in terms of a mere dualism or digital binary system. The binary worldview was increasingly prevalent from the early 17th century, but since the late 20th century, despite its underpinning new electronic technologies, it has finally begun to give ground. 

In the opinion of the author of this website,  the individual who  helped mankind the most during the 20th century towards a new understanding of the human being and the relationship of the human being to the rest of the cosmos was Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), Austrian philosopher, spiritual scientist, educationalist, and very much more. Steiner was a comprehensive genius, a man rather like Aristotle or Confucius. Their ideas, some 80 years after their deaths, were not so very well known throughout the civilised world, but some 1500 years later, it was a different story. It will likely be the same with Steiner. His greatest philosophical work, The Philosophy of Freedom (aka The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity. Original title: Die Philosophie der Freiheit) made possible a revolution in thinking that has yet to be recognised.

The words 'Man' and 'mankind' are often used here in preference to 'human being' or 'humanity', for  'Man' -  which is related to Manas (spirit-self) in Sanskrit, Mensch in German, and 'mind' in English  - points to that which is the most precious attribute of all of us, women and men, namely our creative thinking spirit, while the word 'human' refers to that which is of the earth only, denoting what is of a type ('homo'). The phrase 'human being' thus means 'type being' and omits the sapiens which points to the wisdom of Manas.

"Universal peace will come only when [the] powers have divided the world between themů.or if one nation becomes overwhelmingly superior to the restů.people who can look forward and grasp the essential factors which will govern the future grouping of the nations may be able to exert a profound influence on the political future of the world."

I would that every soul

would kindle a spark  from Cosmic Spirit and become a flame, 

fierily unfolding the very essence of its Self.

 Others would draw from Cosmic Waters and quench the flames 

to liquidate all inward Self.  

 O joy, when the human flame  is blazing, even there when at rest.

O bitterness, when the human 'thing'  is bound there where it would active be.

                                                                         Rudolf Steiner - 1925
