“This human blood — which is in truth not such a material thing as present-day science imagines, but is permeated throughout by impulses from soul and spirit — is rayed through by the force which is carried as Iron into the blood and wages war there on anxiety, fear and hate….This permeation of human blood by the anxiety-dispelling force of Iron is a meteoric activity. The effect of the raying in of the Iron is to drive fear and anxiety out of the blood.“ – Rudolf Steiner
Most people would agree that we have seen a pandemic of fear and terror sweep across the entire world. It is well known that EMF radiation affects the blood and the Iron within it. Could this and certain nano particles that react to electromagnetic frequencies, found within peoples bodies be contributing to some of the psychological affects that we are seeing and certain symptoms attributed to Sars-Cov-2?
The results provide the first evidence that group prejudice and religious belief are susceptible to targeted neuromodulation, and point to a shared cognitive mechanism underlying concrete and abstract decision processes. – Neuromodulation of group prejudice and religious belief
Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, “I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.” – Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, 1970, Viking Press, New York.

“Remember that during the Spanish flu, the problem was the lack of blood coagulability; with Covid-19, a key problem is lack of oxygen in the blood – both conditions point to electrical toxicity rather than infection – Iron-rich blood cells would be especially vulnerable to the effects of electromagnetism.” – The Contagion Myth
There is now a possible further development relating to the Iron in our blood. However hard it is to believe we have to consider that the reports about magnets sticking to Covid 19 injection sites are real, especially given the large number of scientific papers that outline technology that could potentially, if used, cause magnetic affects. The author of this article has witnessed the phenomenon first hand.
“…I’m afraid I at first disregarded the reports of people becoming magnetic on the grounds that it seemed impossible. I’m wrong. I lack an explanation and an understanding. A systemic survey was just undertaken in Luxembourg. 30 vaccinated & 30 unvaccinated agreed to be surveyed & nine in no cases did a small magnet stick to them. But most vaccinated it did stick.
Read the brief report yourself. People were horrified as am I. It’s inconceivable. I can’t explain it. Obviously they have been injected with something that leaves living humans paramagnetic, contrary to all experience.” – Mike Yaedon Vice President and Chief Scientist in a Drug Discovery Research Unit at Pfizer
“–NA–MNPs (magnetic nano particles) Self-Assembly– DNA is considered as a core genetic biological molecule in living systems. Although DNA molecules are composed of simple units, different deoxynucleotide chains and flexible conformations can be achieved through precise design and organization, which can be programmed. In other words, this is the nature of DNA self-assembly. For example, Ma et al. introduced DNA-modified MNPs, Y-scaffolds, and DNA linkers into the framework of DNA hydrogels to construct magnetic controllable DNA hydrogels. – Self-assembled Magnetic Nanomaterials
Darpa are currently funding a number of projects to develop computer brain intrefaces. Battelle Memorial Institute are wokring on Brain STORMS (Brain System to Transmit Or Receive Magnetoelectric Signals)
The nanotransducer would use magnetoelectric nanoparticles to establish a bi-directional communication channel with the brain. Neurons in the brain operate through electrical signals. The magnetic core of the nanotransducers would convert the neural electrical signals into magnetic ones that would be sent through the skull to the helmet-based transceiver worn by the user. The helmet transceiver could also send magnetic signals back to the nanotransducers where they would be converted to electrical impulses capable of being processed by the neurons, enabling two-way communication to and from the brain. – Magnetism Plays Key Roles in DARPA Research to Develop Brain-Machine Interface without Surgery
In Phase 1, the team identified a genetically targeted magnetic stimulation technology that can achieve cell-type specific stimulation with a spatial resolution defined by the distribution of genetically modified cells (< 1mm) and with a temporal resolution approaching 10 ms. Among other accomplishments in Phase 1, were efforts in write technology that achieved targeted and non-invasive delivery of viruses in mice, demonstrating fast magnetic stimulation in mammalian cells; also in viral delivery using magnetic Iron oxide nanocrystal clusters of core/shell with high magnetic heating efficiency and magnetothermal multiplexing
In Phase 2, the team aims to advance its work further toward the goal of reaching demonstration in humans in Phase 3. Among the goals for Phase 3 are to accomplish non-surgical reads, writes with magnetogenetics, and to demonstrate closed-loop brain-to-brain MOANA link in humans. – Magnetism Plays Key Roles in DARPA Research to Develop Brain-Machine Interface without Surgery
***Please note that not all of the examples are legitimate. The videos showing objects sticking to the upper chest, coller bone or face do not necissarily prove anything. The test area needs to be dry and virtical. There will likely be increasing numbers of hoaxes.
It is not yet possible to know exactly what is causing this phenomenon. At the present time however, there is enough evidence to suggest it more likely relates to some kind of self assembling nano technology given that:
A Covid-19 vaccine dose is less than a milliliter (mL), with a typical dose for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine being only about 0.3 mL. That’s not enough volume to squeeze in a typical microchip. Even if the entire injected volume were filled with a ferromagnetic metal, it probably wouldn’t be nearly enough to make your arm into a refrigerator door. – Forbes Fact Check
Magnetic phenominon within the body will be affecting the Iron in the blood regardless of whether the Iron is directly used in some way or a secondary substance is causing the magnet like qualities. We need to seriously consider what the physical and spiritual implications of what we are seeing might be.
“The relation of the etheric to the astral organism of man is bound up with the Iron-content of the blood.” – Rudolf Steiner Anthroposophical Approach to Medicine, Lecture IV, October 28, 1922, GA 314
“The soul will be made non-existent with the aid of a drug. Taking a ‘sound point of view’, people will invent a vaccine to influence the organism as early as possible, preferably as soon as it is born, so that this human body never even gets the idea that there is a soul and a spirit.” – Rudolf Steiner Fall of the Spirits of Darkness Lecture 5
“With such a vaccine, you can easily make the etheric body loose in the physical body. Once the etheric body is detached, the relationship between the universe and the etheric body would become extremely unstable, and man would become an automaton, for the physical body of man must be polished on this Earth by spiritual will.” – Rudolf Steiner (Reference Unverified)
“You see, if you vaccinate someone who is an anthroposophist and has been anthroposophically trained, it does no harm. (alternative: You see, if you vaccinate someone who is an anthroposophist, or bring someone up anthroposophically, it does no harm.) It only harms those who grow up with predominantly materialistic thoughts. In this case, vaccination becomes a kind of Ahrimanic force; the person is no longer able to lift himself or herself out of certain materialistic feelings. – Rudolf Steiner Physiologisch-Therapeutisches auf Grundlage der Geisteswissenschaft (Rudolf Steiner Verlag, 1989), 287-88
With regards to this last quote it should not be taken that a spiritually minded person is not affected by vaccines, rather that through inner work and the right forms of meditaion much can be overcome, especially condiering the massive difference between the vaccines used 100 years ago and current vaccines/mRNA/DNA manipulating technolgoy.
Magnetogenetics and Magnetofection
“If scientists could give living cells magnetic properties, they could perhaps manipulate cellular activities with external magnetic fields…The new area of magnetogenetics seeks to use genetically encoded proteins that are sensitive to magnetic fields to study and manipulate cells. Many previous approaches have featured a natural Iron-storage protein called ferritin, which can self-assemble into a “cage” that holds as many as 4,500 Iron atoms. But even with this large Iron-storage capacity, ferritin cages in cells generate magnetic forces that are millions of times too small for practical applications. To drastically increase the amount of Iron that a protein assembly can store, Bianxiao Cui and colleagues wanted to combine the Iron-binding ability of ferritin with the self-assembly properties of another protein, called Inkabox-PAK4cat, that can form huge, spindle-shaped crystals inside cells. The researchers wondered if they could line the hollow interiors of the crystals with ferritin proteins to store larger amounts of Iron that would generate substantial magnetic forces.” – Engineered protein crystals make cells magnetic
Like optogenetics (see Covid 19 Injection) magnetogenetics uses a combination of genetic manipulation and external stimuli to achieve control of biological and neuronal processes.
…nerve cell proteins which are activated by heat and mechanical pressure can be genetically engineered so that they become sensitive to radio waves and magnetic fields, by attaching them to an Iron-storing protein called ferritin, or to inorganic paramagnetic particles…
…the researchers inserted the Magneto DNA sequence into the genome of a virus, together with the gene encoding green fluorescent protein, and regulatory DNA sequences that cause the construct to be expressed only in specified types of neurons. They then injected the virus into the brains of mice…
In one final experiment, the researchers injected Magneto into the striatum of freely behaving mice, a deep brain structure containing dopamine-producing neurons that are involved in reward and motivation, and then placed the animals into an apparatus split into magnetised a non-magnetised sections. Mice expressing Magneto spent far more time in the magnetised areas than mice that did not, because activation of the protein caused the striatal neurons expressing it to release dopamine, so that the mice found being in those areas rewarding. This shows that Magneto can remotely control the firing of neurons deep within the brain, and also control complex behaviours.” – The Guardian Genetically engineered ‘Magneto’ protein remotely controls brain and behaviour
Of interest is a patent from 2006 that mentions SARS as well as HIV. (please see Covid 19 injection for more information about the HIV connection.)
“A ferritin fusion protein comprising a fusion protein selected from the group consisting of a ferritin protein fused at the C terminus with a protein or peptide capable of being fused to ferritin without interfering with the polymeric assembly of the resulting fusion protein or a ferritin protein fused at the N terminus with a protein or peptide capable of being fused to ferritin without interfering with the polymeric assembly of the resulting fusion protein wherein the protein fused to ferritin is selected from the group consisting of hemoglobin, silver condensing peptide, the HIV Tat protein, the small HIV Tat peptide, HIV-1 P24 protein, and viral proteins from the SARS virus.” – Ferritin Fusion Proteins For Use In Vaccines And Other Applications

“The use of superparamagnetic Iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) to deliver genes via magnetofection shows promise in improving the efficiency of gene delivery both in vitro and in vivo. In particular, the duration for gene transfection especially for in vitro application can be significantly reduced by magnetofection compared to the time required to achieve high gene transfection with standard protocols. SPIONs that have been rendered stable in physiological conditions can be used as both therapeutic and diagnostic agents due to their unique magnetic characteristics.” – Superparamagnetic nanoparticle delivery of DNA vaccine
“In this work, we have shown remote-controlled mechanical dissociation of short DNA duplexes (18–60 bp) under the influence of nonheating low-frequency alternating magnetic fields using individual 11 nm magnetic nanoparticles. The developed technique allows (1) simultaneous manipulation of millions of individual DNA molecules and (2) evaluation of energies of intermolecular interactions in short DNA duplexes or in other molecules. Finally, we have shown that DNA duplexes dissociation is mediated by mechanical stress and produced by the movement of magnetic nanoparticles in magnetic fields, but not by local overheating. The presented technique opens a new avenue for high-precision manipulation of DNA and generation of biosensors for quantification of energies of intermolecular interaction.” – Magnetic Nanoparticles as a Tool for Remote DNA Manipulations at a Single-Molecule Level

BRAIN SCIENCE FROM BENCH TO BATTLEFIELD: THE REALITIES – AND RISKS – OF NEUROWEAPONS | CGSR SEMINAR
As has been discussed and shown in the other articles on this site we are in spiritual battle, a battle for the human ‘I’. If one wished to completely manipulate and control a human being something would need to be done to subvert the part of the human being that is the carrier of this quality, the blood, and the substance within it intimately connected with free will, Iron.
“The degree to which a child achieves free will relates to the absorption of Iron. This shows that Iron is necessary for freedom of will. – Rudolf Steiner Cosmic Workings in Earth and Man (in GA 351). Rudolf Steiner Lecture of Oct 27, 1923. Tr. V.E. Evans. London: Rudolf Steiner Publishing Co. 1952.
“Think of a baby: it kicks a lot and certainly dreams; but it has neither independent thought nor any free will in the real sense. In the measure that it attains freedom of will, its instincts call for Iron. Iron is really necessary for free will.” – Rudolf Steiner Cosmic Workings In Earth and Man

“Iron mediates between the forces of life and consciousness. It permeates our entire organism. It appears in its most concentrated and mineralized form in the blood. It is always combined with protein. This Iron-protein structure appears in various forms, mediating between the unconscious life processes and the consciousness-awakening processes. It mediates between sleeping and waking. Its true home is thus in the rhythmic organism. It joins forces with the circulatory system. There, in our blood, it first exercises its healing function. The red blood cells swim in the blood. By means of Iron, they receive the necessary weight and earthly heaviness. This is the physiological basis for the ensoulment of our bodies. Iron is an important regulator of the activity of blood circulation – that is, of the interplay between the etheric and astral organisms. Physical-chemical processes play into our blood, and they are necessary in order for our Ego to participate in the physical world. This points to Iron – an inorganic, mineral, even crystalline element – in the erythrocytes.” – Rudolf Steiner, quoted in Gerhard Schmidt, The Essentials of Nutrition, Bio-dynamic Literature, Wyoming, USA, 1987
It is often said that we are playing checkers while the representatives of the adversarial powers are playing three-dimensional chess. It is much worse than that, we are playing checkers and they are working with understanding of the 14 spiritual levels that are shown on the diagrams page and their inverted counterparts. We cannot afford to stay ignorant of spiritual matters any longer! Looking at scientific papers to explain the technological transformation of the human being only gives us part explanation as to what exactly is taking place. As I hope the reader is starting to glimpse, there are non-physical implications that can not be explained with the physically based sciences alone. Aspects of the technology we are seeing has quite specific spiritual affects on human beings. Just as there have been and are highly developed initiates who perceive, work with and make available knowledge of the non-physical words with the intention of helping humanity along its intended path, there are those who follow a different path of initiation, one that can also lead to a certain perception and understanding of spiritual matters, however, instead of using this knowledge for humanities development they use it selfishly to gain knowledge that is used for power and control and to further the very specific goals of the adversarial powers. Once people are separated from the higher parts of themselves it will be all the easier to influence them to to enmesh their intelligence within the very fabric of the smart contract based universal computer that the internet and World Wide Web are becoming.
“It may strike you, dear reader, that computers are not intelligent in this sense. That is the truth. Information processing is one thing, intelligence is quite another. What we call artificial intelligence today is not intelligence at all. Despite the hopes and dreams of Sir Tim Berners-Lee and his colleagues of the Word Wide Web Consortium, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Laboratory for Computer Science, who still believe in the coming Semantic Web which will itself understand the information it handles, the digital electronics used in computer technology is simply incapable of doing that. Machines that work solely with the forces of death cannot think – they cannot partake in the living activity of thinking, but only deal with its end product: finished thoughts. Moral technology alone is capable of building machines endowed with a simple form of thinking. But Ahriman-Sorat will incorporate into electronics another kind of component that is indeed the bearer of intelligence: the human being himself. If men’s heads are wired into computer systems by brain-to-microprocessor links or whatever, then the Cosmic Intelligence that was brought into man’s head-organisation by the beings of the highest hierarchies – the Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones – will thereby be directed into the electromagnetic fields and electronic circuitry of the Internet. There it can be controlled and misused by the Sun Demon. There it will become Satanic Intelligence. As a component of the Internet, the human organism will be irreparably damaged.” – Paul Emberson Supersensible Researcher, 50 Years from Now (written in 2009)
As people transform their bodies with tranhumanist technology and ultimately connect themselves to the internet using computer brain interfaces their soul life will become bound to the internet. However hard it may be to do, it is imperative that we start to consider what effect this will have on people after they have died.
“Certain American occult brotherhoods were intent on diverting technical development from its proper course, by introducing techniques employing the polar duality of the positive and negative magnetic forces. These forces are connected with the constellation of Gemini. Their use would allow cosmic forces to work through the corresponding devices and systems in such a way that they could be placed wholly in the service of the Ahrimanic ‘double’ in man. This would enable the brotherhoods in question to take over Christ’s sphere of influence and set in His place a being “that has never appeared in the flesh – an etheric individuality, but a strongly Ahrimanic one.” That Being is Sorat, the Antichrist.
Those satanic brotherhoods – for that is what they are – would be assisted by their Oriental counterparts, who are determined to eliminate perception of the real Christ in the etheric realm. This they could achieve by bringing into technical application the other polar duality of positive and negative forces – those of electricity as it works in man’s animal nature – connected with the constellation of Sagittarius.
Tragically, the occult brotherhoods were victorious. Technology has effectively been thrown right off course. Instead of Moral Technology, which would have incorporated the beneficent forces of Pisces and Virgo it was its Ahrimanic counterpart that became reality: electronics. Electronics, in particular digital electronics, artificial intelligence has been placed in the service of the Ahrimanic double. The whole atmospheric sphere of our planet is saturated with the harsh square-wave radiation of digital radio, radar, television and Wi-Fi transmitters, which impress their vibration-patterns, by induction, onto the human nervous system, blanking out perception of Christ. Meanwhile the binary electronic operations of the individual computers, Internet and the World Wide Web draw living human souls down into the subnatural sphere of the Sorat, the great Sun Demon. If the development of technology had followed its normal path, none of this would have existed. But the occult brotherhoods have imposed their deviant technology on us. Steiner said that by means of this immensely evil technology, the souls of the dead would be forcibly introduced into artificially intelligent machines. Today’s regular gamers, whose souls are wed to their avatars during life*, will not experience a normal death. When the body dies, the soul will remain in the Earth-realm, in the electromagnetic fields, bound to the avatar in the data banks of the World Wide Web.” – Paul Emberson Supersensible Researcher, 50 Years from Now (written in 2009)
*Here Paul is not implying that this will be the fate of anyone who plays computer games, he is referring to someone who is materialistically minded and who feels that their online Persona or Avatar is more representative of who they are than the person they are in the real world.
It is all too easy to separate the physical and spiritual in our minds when in reality there is no such division, the spiritual affects the physical and what we do in the physical world affects the spiritual. The spiritual essence of the human being is arguably much more valuable than someones body. Why just kill people if you can instead do so in such a way that furthers your dark and nefarious aims? The physical benefits obtained by certain parties in relation to the manipulation of society to amass wealth and power is clear to see, is it so hard to believe that people with such a mind set would not also wish to manipulate people spiritually after they have died for those and other objectives?
“So now let us assume that here is the realm of one of those brotherhoods [small circle, green]. This brotherhood is spreading the doctrine of materialism and ensuring that these human beings most probably think in a purely materialistic way. By this means the brotherhood succeeds in generating souls for itself that remain in the earthly sphere after death. They become the spiritual clientele, of this lodge [orange]. In other words, by this means dead souls have been created who do not go out off the earthly sphere but remain with the earth. By making the right arrangements they can be held within the lodge. So in this way lodges have been created which contain the living but also the dead, the dead who have become related to the earthly forces.
Matters are then directed by these people here who hold sessions or by means of arranging meetings like the spiritualist seances of the second half of the nineteenth century about which I have frequently spoken. It can then happen – and please take note of this – that what goes on here in the sessions is directed by the lodge with the help of the dead. But it is the intention of the masters in those lodges that the people must not know that they are dealing with the dead, for they are meant to believe that what they are dealing with are simply higher forces of nature. The intention is to show people that these are higher forces of nature, psychism and so on, merely higher forces of nature. The concept of the soul as such is taken away and the people are told: ‘Just as there is electricity, and magnetism, so are there similar higher forces.’ Those who lead the lodge hide the fact that these things are coming from souls. So those other, innocuous souls gradually become dependent, psychologically dependent, on the lodge without knowing what they are dependent on or where that which is directing them is coming from.
The only defence against these things is knowing about them. If you know about them you are protected. If you know about them in that you really regard them as true, that you really believe them to be like this, then you are protected. But you must not be idle about acquiring real knowledge about these things. For the present, however, it can still be said that it is not yet absolutely too late regarding this. These things can only be clarified gradually and I can only slowly gather together the various elements by which you can be given full clarity. – Rudolf Steiner Secret Brotherhoods and the Mystery of the Human Double P. 137
“At the stage the world has now reached in human evolution we must acquire spiritual concepts if we want to detach from ourselves something we would otherwise carry within us only as though asleep. People find these spiritual concepts awkward because they have to make some effort, more effort than would be necessary for ordinary concepts. But if they acquire them, then, after death these concepts develop tremendous power, and it is this power alone that gives us the ability to recognize and comprehend the spiritual world. This is exceedingly important. People today feel uncomfortable if they have to acquire spiritual concepts. They like going to meetings where they are shown lantern slides or similar things and therefore do not have to think in a supersensible way; they like to see things in front of them, or at least hear lectures that tell them only about what they anyway always have before their eyes. People today shy away from making an effort to ascend to concepts that are more difficult here because they have no outer object since their objects are the facts that relate to the supersensible world. Over there, however, these concepts are the forces which actually bring the reality of the world to us.
Wisdom, then, is something we need so that we can have light after death. But there is something else we need after death as well. The ability to detach the beings of the spiritual world in order to be able to confront them is not the only thing we need, for we also have to have the faculty of love. If we did not have this we would be unable to develop a proper relationship with the beings whom wisdom enables us to perceive. We need the faculty of love. However, the love engendered here on the earth is for the most part dependent on our physical body. This love is a feeling and it depends on the rhythm of breathing here in the physical world. It is not the kind of love that we can take with us into the spiritual world. It would be a complete illusion to believe that we can take this love over with us into the spiritual world, especially the kind of love we develop here at this particular time. What we do take over into the spiritual world is all the power of the love we acquire here in the physical world through perceiving this world with our senses, through living with this physical world.
Love, then, is noble if you can rise up to higher worlds and love what you gain through spiritual concepts. We must on no account forget this: Love is lowly when it works in a lowly sphere, and it is noble and high and spiritual when it works in a higher, a spiritual sphere. This is the essential point to be remembered. If you remain unaware of this you will be unable to discern things in the right way.” – Rudolf Steiner Secret Brotherhoods and the Mystery of the Human Double P. 53
The technology that is being injected into people is not the technology that will realise the next phase of human beings’ evolution, it is the tool of our enslavement, the dark counterpart to a moral technology that must now be developed, a technology which will in a certain way connect with human beings but in such a way that it will leave them free to develop organs of spiritual perception, the intended next phase of our evolution. Please at least consider that we are not just seeing an attempt at the physical enslavement of the human being but also the spiritual enslavement, the spiritual enslavement following the physical enslavement which is designed in such a way as to systematically reduce someones “I” constitution, make them complete materialists though belief systems and medical devices and then bind their souls and intelligence to sub earthy virtual worlds! This does not have to manifest everywhere, we can and must create an alternative.
First, we have to understand that the heart is not mechanical but takes its orientation from the human being. Then people will also find the basic principles for external machines, making them such that they take their orientation from the human being. But in a science which has so much taken the easy way that the heart is described as if the human being had just a pump there in the blood circulation, in such a science people will feel no compunction to make machines where the human being has to take his orientation from the machine. All the problems in our social situation are due to this wrong view that is taken in science. And so one really has to understand that a proper way of thinking must first of all come upon people, for only then will it be possible to begin a proper social life. For as long as people think the heart is a pump, they will also not be able to relate to outer life in the right way. It is only when people know that the invisible human being is greater than his heart, that it is he who moves the heart, that they will also design their machines to be in accord with human nature. – Rudolf Steiner From Mammoths to Mediums, June 6 , 1923, GA 350
“In our time there are certain changes taking place in the heart, by which gradually a fifth chamber will develop. In this fifth chamber man will have a new organ which will allow him to control life forces in a different way than is possible at the moment.” – Spiritual Science and Medicine, Lecture VIII, March 27, 1920, GA 312
Steiner spoke about artificial intelligence in 1917. He said that if this was to come about in a healthy way we would need to develop technology in which the cosmic forces of Pisces and Virgo act in co-operation.
Saint Michael Vanquishing Satan, c. 1518
Notice how Michael does not kill the dragon, he has it under his feet. Is the technology we use under our feet, so to speak, or is it ever increasingly penetrating and manipulating our physical and non-physical bodies?
“During the last three or four centuries we have developed a magnificent natural science and a far-reaching technology, based on the most widely-distributed material to be found on earth. We have learnt to make out of Iron nearly all the most essential and important things produced by mankind in a materialistic age. In our locomotives, our factories, on all sides we see how we have built up this whole material civilisation on Iron, or on steel, which is only Iron transformed. And all the uses to which Iron is put are a symbolic indication of how we have built our whole life and outlook out of matter and want to go on doing so. But that is a downward-leading path. Man can rescue himself from its impending dangers only if he starts to spiritualise life in this very domain, if he penetrates through his environment to the spiritual; if he turns from the Iron which is used for making engines and looks up again to the meteoric Iron which showers down from the cosmos to the earth and is the outer material from which the power of Michael is forged. Men must come to see the great significance of the following words: “Here on earth, in this epoch of materialism, you have made use of Iron, in accordance with the insight gained from your observation of matter. Now, just as you must transform your vision of matter through the development of natural science into Spiritual Science, so must you rise from your former idea of Iron to a perception of meteoric Iron, the Iron of Michael’s sword. Then healing will come from what you can make of it.” This is the content of the aphorism:
You mould it (Iron) to your service,
You reveal it (Iron) according to the value of its substance
In many of your works.
Yet it will bring you healing
Only when it reveals to you
The lofty power of its spirit.
That is, the lofty power of Michael, with the sword he has welded together in cosmic space out of meteoric Iron. Healing will come when our material civilisation proves capable of spiritualising the power of iron into the power of Michael-Iron, which gives man self-consciousness in place of mere nature-consciousness.
You have seen that precisely the most important demand of our time, the Michael-demand, is implicit in this aphorism, this script that reveals itself in the astral light.” – Rudolf Steiner
**Here we have one of the great problems which may arise when truths relating to the non-physical world are presented. Yet the answer always has to be that it is simply necessary to present these truths today. We must not forget that truths relating to the non-physical world cannot be received in the same frame of mind as truths relating to the physical world. To take them in we must slightly loosen the etheric and astral bodies; otherwise we shall only hear words. The state of mind has to be such — and with reference to the phenomena of the subjective inner life it merely is a state of mind — that for any real understanding of the things of the spirit one has to loosen the etheric and astral bodies a little. This loosening should only be a means of gaining understanding of the world of the spirit. It must not become an end in itself; this would be a very serious matter. – Rudolf Steiner
