Hierarchies and the Physical World - Rudolf Steiner:
Ever since nature and consciousness were separated in the late
Middle Ages, eventually giving rise to a science of matter
alone, the spiritual beings who are the basis of the universe,
have been excluded from human endeavour and, as a result, have
been unable to complete their work, which depends on human
collaboration for its success. Human beings have, on their
part, felt abandoned and isolated, no longer feeling a part of
the continuum of life.
In The Spiritual Hierarchies and the Physical World, Rudolf Steiner re-establishes the human
being as a participant in an evolving, dynamic universe of
living spiritual beings.
He does so in concrete descriptions and images, capable of being
modern conceptual consciousness.
describe these beings, Steiner uses the names made familiar by
the wisdom traditions of the West. He details of the previous evolutionary states of
the Earth; the nine ranks of angelic and super-angelic beings;
their emissaries, the elemental beings and nature spirits; and the
fundamental elements of fire, earth, air, and water.
