225-04 7(7/15/1923, Dornach) (124ff.) 5352 Russia From the fourth post-Christian century on, a spiritual diaphragm formed between East and West along the Urals and the Black Sea: In the East the rests of the spiritual view (the pleroma, see preceding abstract) became decadent and turned into physical-sensory magic beings: shamanism, ahrimanised black magic. This is connected with the fact that the astral beings which were called satyrs and fauns by the Greek went to Asia at that time and seduced people. In the West, the clear thinking developed without view of the spiritual which bound itself more and more to the sensory under the influence of luciferic beings. This led to such views like Bolshevism. Lenin (1870-1924, picture) as possessed by these luciferic beings. The Western and Eastern astral beings strive for a "horny marriage in this area. Metamorphosed fauns come into being: Imagination of a humanlike glittering gigantic head (from the Western beings) and a goat-like abdomen (from the Eastern beings).

The reason of somnambulism is to be looked for in the fact that the human being behaved in an extremely hostile way towards the spiritual world in the pre-earthly existence. The astral body cannot be consolidated properly due to this antipathy with the descent, and thats why a relationship with the lunar forces remains. Lunar addiction as an educative aid against hostility to the spirit. On the special type of vision of Jacob Bhme (1575-1624) who was not addicted to moon in his will but was exposed to the solar influence in his knowledge. This was an atavistic kind of the retrospect of the condition how one beholds in the pre-earthly spiritual world (with Paracelsus, too).
