Evolution

From Anthroposophy

Evolution is an essential cornerstone, but it is also a vast and extremely complex theme to cover.

We can take three main perspectives:

  • spiritual hierarchies and their evolution in the great cosmic dynamic
  • the macrosmos - heavenly bodies, our solar system, stars and planets
  • Man, or the microcosmos .. how the make-up and consciousness of Man evolves
  • evolution of the macrocosmos, of spiritual beings and all forms of life, of consciousness
  • cosmogony, the origin of our solar system / cosmos

and the mapping to:

  • the Biblical texts: Genesis, The Book of Revelation (Apocalyps)
  • myths and legends as per tradition and artworks (eg Wagner)
