About these webinars...
Webinar 1: The Cosmic Necessity of Our Technological Age
Friday, 12 March: 20:00 - 21:30 CET (2 – 3:30 pm ET)
Rudolf Steiner distinguished between freedom and necessity for humanity. He explains how our current fifth Post-Atlantean Epoch will come to an end. Andrew will outline the role technology must take in our human evolution. This includes roles in the lead-up to Ahriman’s incarnation, then towards the end of sexual procreation, and finally to the return of the moon.
Webinar 2: The Welding Together of Man and Machine
Friday, 19 March: 20:00 - 21:30 CET (2 – 3:30 pm ET)
In this webinar, we continue our study of the role of technology through the rest of Post-Atlantean Cultural Ages. As the physical body withers, humanity will seek technological solutions that will further hasten the body’s demise. We’ll look at how prosthetics work today and how they will work in the future. We will explore foundations for a Mechanical Occultism.
Webinar 3: Maintaining Our Humanity Through the Challenge of Our Times
Friday, 26 March: 20:00 - 21:30 CET (2 – 3:30 pm ET)
It may feel like an impossible future, but don’t underestimate our human capacities. We’ve not been abandoned by the spiritual world! We’ll examine the offered help from spiritual beings and the Christ. Lastly, we look at contemporary issues and their counterbalances in this light.
