coldness from the cosmos.

207-10 6(10/7/1921, Dornach) (99ff.) 4621 life after death / hierarchies The human being can only develop a correct relationship to his angel with his "mineral" consciousness after death if this is tinged moral-religiously. Toward the cosmic midnight, he has to get relationship to the archangel with the help of his angel. The archangel connects him with the nationality of his next incarnation. If the moral-religious impulses were absent, he could only be connected externally with his nationality: That leads to nationalism. The archangel can only work on the plant-like in the human being: breathing, the mechanical of the language. From the cosmic midnight on, the human being reaches the realm of the archai after death who lead the human being back again into the earthly borders of his being. The forces of the plant-like (archangeloi) are condensed to the animal, to forces of organs. The constellations of the sun in the zodiac show the principles of the will of the archai. The animal-like is integrated and directed into the human being within the planetary spheres (direction of spine, hands, in so far as they are an expression of the soul element). And we owe all that helps us as human beings to be a human being - down to the lowest level of the animal organisation - to the constellation of the moon to the planets.
7(10/8/1921, Dornach) (117ff.) 4623 207-11 life after death / ego-consciousness after death / kingdoms of nature The human being co-operates with his "mineral" consciousness on the mineral kingdom of the earth and also on that of the universe after kamaloka. Before and after the cosmic midnight, he has a plant consciousness and co-operates in the kingdom of plants. With the passageway through the planetary spheres he takes part of the creation of the animal kingdom and builds up his organs (inner animal kingdom) from all the animal group souls The human etheric body is prepared through the constellations of the planets: The human being brings the etheric cosmic fruit from the cosmos, in which the impact for the karmic trends is contained.

207-12 7(10/8/1921, Dornach) (121ff.) 4623 Goethe is characterised (especially regarding his dramas) as a human being who took part in the plant-like consciousness most intensely during the postmortal life around the cosmic midnight and did later not enter the world completely in many a respect.
8(10/9/1921, Dornach) (132ff.) 4626 207-14 kingdom of nature / members The human physical body is the germ of a plant-mineral kingdom, the etheric body of an animal-plant kingdom, the astral body of a human-animal kingdom (animality with thought, reasonable, however, more automatic actions). The ego will be the germ of a supernatural soul-human being kingdom in which the human being manifests his inside outwardly: Ahrimanic and luciferic figures beside "Christian" ones (Jupiter existence). Caricature of the superman by Nietzsche. On the latter see CW 5, chapter II, The Superman. 9(10/1/1921, Dornach) (p. 152) 4633 207-14 The ego is only germ of a soul-human being kingdom on Jupiter under certain conditions: If the ego absorbs nothing but what it can take up from the earth culture, this egoconsciousness will also cease with the earth. Thats why it is necessary to absorb anthroposophy. Were it turned down, the human cover would develop further, but it would be claimed by other than human beings, and humans would sink down onto a lower existence than it was originally destined for them.
