If Ahriman attains the rulership in the astral body, the human being becomes an extreme egoist, however, holds together his instincts, so that Ahriman cannot approach. If Lucifer predominates in the astral body, man gets ego-less states. Similar explanations in 219/3(12/3/1922, Dornach): The ahrimanic beings are described as moon beings, Mercury beings, and Venus beings that lagged behind and want to give the human being an etheric body composed of the earths ether during sleep, so that he becomes an etheric ghost (phantom) at the end of the Earths evolution, which would not continue. The luciferic beings are Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars beings.

Then he will have the possibility to hand over his physical spirit-body prepared by him to another human being and take over the body which the other soul has prepared he has especially damaged (ideal white magic, exchange of physical bodies). In time to come this will be also possible on earth. This will happen when the earth itself has gone over into other states.

You also experience everything back in one quarter of an hour what you have accomplished since the last waking. Sleep is a model for the reverse experience after death. The cooperation of memory (change of teeth) and love (puberty) in speech and singing. See also 236-18.

This causes that the human being distinguishes his physical body and etheric body to such a degree that memory can be stopped in the physical body. Thus it releases him that our whole, in particular moral life does not always stand before us and we can grasp the thoughts of neutral common sense in the etheric body. 16(12/9/1922, Stuttgart) (308ff.) 5094 218-12 senses The ear is an echo of the music of the spheres.
