It is an amazing thought you have brought forth here in this discussion. Perhaps not all our readers know of this spiritual being called 'Ahriman'. A discussion about the nature of this being is therefore essential to not only understand the ideas that have inspired you so, but also in a way one can see how it is easy to define it in the nature in which it is found to be working in. One can come to this same experience with a number of special substances, but 'glue' comes into my thoughts. And as It is only one among many, I do not think it exhausts more possibilities, but will hopefully inspire us with more reflections on life. But I want to express this one, since it has come into my thoughts, so it must have some meaning there - aha I have it. The substances are those which we can also comprehend as the tendency for men (males and females) to 'stick' to old patterns of thought, represented in 'programs' 'science' 'logic' 'dogmas' 'religions' etc and all of them claiming to 'unify' or bring 'love' or 'peace' or 'goodness'. And from the logical, 'stick to the program' method, this would indeed work, but so does a camel work, at least in theory, until one is in the real substances of life. And so I believe all men are feeling they have something to say, if only they had the words. It is my aim at this school to provide words that inspire and revitalize our minds and to aggregate our thoughts into powerful substances and materials. We can reflect: just as a glove is used when using glue, and then 'glue' is no longer a dangerous substance. Men need lots of reflective thought in order to work with the new substances that are now present in our lives and now also in our atmosphere (aether). And of course it is invisible, and also for that reason, spiritual. There was a time when the spiritual was better comprehended than today. The balance which is needed is found in our modern teaching and without a balance, the in-comprehended spiritual aspect is as a huge weight to the other side, and all the more tire-some too, because of it. The soul faces itself in a state of spiritual weariness because it lacks just that spiritual teaching which is found in our teachings. One could in the past balance thought with feelings etc, but that time has now past. One could ask about this 'aether' and 'atmosphere'. That is one of the core teachings in my lectures. Our atmosphere, as 'nature' is changing because the teachers are now able to integrate new substances into the life-stream of the earth. These substances were not available previously in the earth nature. A teacher of a high order knows fully, and in a conscious way that this is occurring.
