Now, I know the rough retort from some scientist who said that if you think science is a narrative go jump out the window and see what kind of story gravity is, and I would reply oh you silly silly man of course gravity works and I'll reply with why don't you explain to me the physiology and evolutionary mechanisms at work that make us laugh and I'll tell a joke and we'll see which one causes us the most mirth. Of course my example is kind of tongue in cheek but the point I'm trying to get at is that we live amongst a myriad of narratives, or ways of seeing the world. And me I find passages in Samuel Beckett to be laugh out loud funny and there is that guy sitting over there who only finds the Monday jokes in Garfield comic strips to be funny, and these things are all true about the way we each see the world, and the scientist who can explain what happens when we laugh, or what is going on in our heads that causes us to be unable to cope with everyday life might be more onto the 'truth' of what is going on but it's only one strand of the story that is going on. This book starts off by throwing down the gloves and telling materialist science that it's about to get it's ass kicked; specifically it's Darwin's evolution and the followers of his theory that are going to be getting an ass kicking. And the physical scientists can keep explaining the world through their little ways but they need to bow their heads to the mighty spiritual scientists who know the truth. It's not a question that can be answered by merely pointing to the smallest parts and then saying that the 'I' lives there, like in Descartes Pineal Gland, and I'd be surprised if any scientist today thinks that cognition is going to be found in the littlest units of the brain, the question is how the physical parts combine in such a way to create all of the things that make us the beings we are. Instead of Steiner saying something like, hey Science people I think you're missing something in our account of the world, you can't just keep reducing there is something missing in the way your framing your questions about the world, he gives a tedious story about seven root races of humanity (of which the fine folks of Atlantis were number four and the Aryans are the current root race and number five, with six and seven still to come), who pass through seven different planets (but planets in a metaphysical sense, they are all on this heap of rock we call Earth, but Earth is only the fourth manifestation (but not just a manifestation, it's the same place but different, it's all continuous, oh except for those long sleeping periods in between each giant cosmic age), of which the first was Saturn, then the Sun and then the Moon and then Earth and then some other planets of which Venus is one of them and I forget the other two I think maybe Jupiter and Uranus, but I might be wrong. Every page or so Steiner reminds us that he is telling us the objective truth and that this is all read from this magical book in the (astral? If one thinks he is full of hookum, or shit then one just needs to turn to the last chapter in the book where he proves that people who don't believe in his brand of truth are bigoted deluded morons who can't see past their own ignorance. He also goes as far to show that he accepts scientists as explaining certain things in the world, but these scientists aren't open-minded enough to accept the 'truth' spoken about by Steiner and people of his ilk.

Very easy to read for a Steiner book- and I am having body-memories of images and names - so fascinating!

Just as the eye perceives colours and the ear sounds, so thinking perceives ideas.' A consistent thread that runs from his earliest philosophical phase through his later spiritual orientation is the goal of demonstrating that there are no essential limits to human knowledge."
