“All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart. But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.” Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
“In our time there are certain changes taking place in the heart, by which gradually a fifth chamber will develop. In this fifth chamber man will have a new organ which will allow him to control life forces in a different way than is possible at the moment.” “All that happens in the moral life, and all that happens physically in the world…the moral and the physical….are found in their real union when we learn to understand all the configurations of the human heart.” Rudolf Steiner
“The radiation from this etheric organ of the heart is
actually developing into a spiritual sense organ. A new
sense organ is developing in this etheric heart, and this
is the only organ by which man is able to sense and to
recognize the Etheric Christ”.
Ehrenfried Pfeiffer December 17, 1950
Our first hurdle in opening the window to the occult understanding of “THE FIFTH CHAMBER” of the human heart is to grasp where in nature we have found a five chambered heart. It so happens that Bees have a five chambered heart. This sets the tone of our research.
Cardiac Stimulus the Blood and the human I AM
“This ego-organisation is active in the blood; actually, it brings the blood into movement, and in accordance with the movement of the blood, the heart beats. In text books you will always find the facts quite falsely stated, for it is represented as though the heart were a kind of pump, and that this pumping of the heart sends the blood all over the body. This is nonsense, because it is in reality the blood which is brought into motion by the ego-organisation, and moves throughout the body. If anyone asserts that it is the heart that drives the blood, then he must equally assert that if he has a turbine, it is the turbine that sets the water in motion, though everyone knows that it is the water that drives the turbine. Man has the same kind of points of resistance in his heart; the blood comes up against them and sets the heart in motion; thus it is that the ego-organisation works directly in the circulation of the blood.
“Now it is actually the case that this ego-organisation is in a mysterious way present in the poison of the bee; it is a similar force to the force that circulates in your blood that is present in the bee-poison. It is of great interest that the bee should have need of this poison within her. The bee does not merely need it in order to be able to sting; that is merely incidental. The bee needs the poison throughout its whole organism, for it must have the same force of circulation that man has in his blood.” Rudolf Steiner
There is a stage by stage upgrading power that is on it’s way to lift the human heart up to it’s fifth chamber. However this will cause immense problems in how we feel and how we connect to reality. In other words as we embark on the awful and necessary task of evolving a Fifth Chamber to our human hearts we encounter shattering, earth changing difficulties.
“Honeybees have an open circulatory system formed by the heart and the aorta. The blood is pumped from the five-chambered heart into the aorta. The chambers of the heart have ostial valves which allow the blood to enter into the heart but backward movement to body cavity is prevented. The blood is poured into the body cavity below the brain at the anterior opening of aorta. The organ systems freely bathe in the blood in the body cavity. The muscle movement of dorsal diaphragm helps in pumping the blood, whereas ventral diaphragm beats in backward direction.”
One of the hurdles in developing a five chambered heart in humanty is that our powers as human beings would be spiritually and morally altered. Our connection to the living forces of nature, as the Bees experience the living forces of nature, would plug us into our own feelings of LIFE and Etheric life and the critical psychological, emotional and karmic health of our fellow human beings and the poisoning effects we have inflicted into nature due to our sterile emotional, intellectual distance we maintain, as the safe guard to our freedom to think in which ever way we please about anything. Even if the way we think about nature and the human heart is a grotesque error of education and judgment. (CLICK LINK FOR VERIFICATION)
There are sensitive forces of etheric light, plants and the lymphatic system of humans respond to forces of light that are linked in kind, in the moral sciences with the Sun Forces and these Sun Forces can but hardly ever penetrate into the deeper layers of our etheric, astral and physical body system. That is the moral streaming Light and Love, not decayed lower Devachan light, but the streaming of higher light and love that arrives in an invisible, thought and emotional, even religious experience.
Experiencing the damning up of the flow of living love and light from entering recesses in the human heart and also experiencing the crippling and contracting soul pain that others are strangled by, because of a lack of Living Light in both attitudes and emotions is to still celebrate our darkness. Also crippling mental standpoints laced with lies, cannot, by merely paying lip service to a simple ‘born again’ – “Jesus Saves” entrenched dogmatic solution, solve anything without an opening of the heart. In fact such false solutions fail to penetrate down into the deeper layers of our psychology and in reality surrounds the soul with stifling subjective dogmas.
Since humanity presently, with few exceptions, and there are a few, with few exceptions most of humanity have a four-chambered heart. We can move up from cold blooded to warm blooded creatures and as we do we can move from two-chambered hearts to three chambered hearts to four chambered hearts and of course our considerations presently, of an etherically sensitive five chambered heart. The Fifth Chamber being a new flux and influx of etheric streaming forces which catch the higher forces of etheric nature and human nature in it’s sensitivity.
“Now I have some answers, not all, though! In 1932, Harvard
University scientist, Bremer, filmed blood flow in embryos
before the heart was formed, but did not realise its great
impact in demolishing the pump pressure theory. Steiner
of Goetheanum in Switzerland used to teach his medical
students that the heart is not a pump – even as early as the
1920s. He alluded to the blood flow in vessels before the
development of the heart in the embryo as a spiral flow
propelled by its own biological momentum in the same
tubes that later became the heart. The heart, he taught,
was only aiding this process. Pressure, he thought, was not
making the blood to flow but was only interrupting the
flow! Etherisation and pneumatisation (or ensoulment) of
blood flow was thought of by thinkers centuries ago but
was all but laughed at in the last three hundred years by
the champions of the mechanical pump theory. “The
power of God (God’s energy) sends blood into all parts of
the body through the aorta” was the description of the
cardiac physiology in the Narayanasookthani of the
Dashasookthanis in Indian wisdom of the Vedic times. One
could visualize the similarities of wisdom at all times!
Lots of simple questions should baffle anyone when told
that the heart, an organ which weighs about 300 grammes,
could pump about 8,000 litres of blood daily at rest, which
goes up exponentially on exercise, without tiring.
Converted to mechanical energy, this amounts to lifting
100 pounds of weight to a height of a mile, write Ralph
Marinelle and colleagues in that remarkable article in the
Frontiers Perspectives [will appear later as link with reference to the heart as a pump]. They have given
extensive literature references to substantiate the claim
that the heart can not, by any stretch of imagination, be
just a simple muscular pump. More amazing is the
concept that the heart could pump blood, five times
thicker than water, through millions of miles of capillaries
where even a single RBC might not pass through those
capillaries but for its capacity to change shape. More
intriguing is the idea that a central organ, which weighs
around 300 grammes in all, could generate so much
pressure as to maintain pressures for blood to flow millions
of miles down the stream through capillaries.”
Since the Bee family already have Five-Chambered hearts, we have before us a remarkable series of insights called, “Nine Lectures on Bees” by Rudolf Steiner. These are highly unique and they bring before us what we are and what we aren’t as human beings with a four chambered heart. The Bees have a five chambered heart and the descriptions of the Colonies of Bees and the Hive life are simply stunning as Steiner reveals it as a science that makes us wish that every scientist had the good sense to understand Spiritual Science.
Key to the life organization of the Bee is the reality of what the Bee represents as a physical organic creature here with us on Earth, sharing the etheric, blossoming, nectar bearing and essential honeycomb, HEXAGONAL life system and cellular foundation structure of matter itself. “Nine Lectures on Bees” span a vast swath of insight into the insect colonies and communities, but stunning to considerations of THE FIFTH CHAMBER of the human heart, is that the Bee is locked into having its roots in The Sun itself.
In considering the Hexagonal systems structure that runs through the blood and through the plant and through crystal structures and bee honeycombs, we have to pause and consider the tiny miracle of the six legged insect. This is such an astonishing design, so that while observing the six legged insects, not so the eight leggeds, but the six legged insects, we are looking directly at a walking, living, specific servant and tool of the hexagonal flow of life and light through the system of nature and the system of the plants chlorophyll and green blood and our own circulating human red blood.
All of these forces and systems are dominated by the vast hexagonal structural basis of life itself and the very hexagonal eyes of the bees.
The Bee community is rooted and locked into the Sun forces circulating in the Earth and the Sun processes in the plant communities.
The Sun takes approximately 25 to 27 days to turn once on it’s axis. 25 to 27 Earth days is considered one rotation or one day of the Sun and our gestation cycles on Earth and in particular the Bee community are set on the basis of the rotation of the Sun.
Our Earth turns on it’s axis in 24 hours. So the Bee sets it’s life functions, not by the facts of Earth exactly, but through the fact that the Bees are literal Sun Beings in our midst. The entire wisdom of the hive and the Bee colony and the five-chambered bee heart is locked into the wisdom of and efficiency and reality of the Sun forces streaming and hidden in the matrix of the Earth.
Diameter…. 1,392,000 km
Mass (Earth = 1)…. 332,830
Rotation period (length of day in Earth days)…. 25
Mean surface temperature…. 5527 (C) … 9981 (F)
This erupting and eroding Sun Force in the Human Heart sourced as the Risen Christ, the Sun Being that is commonly dismissed as a made up story, patched together out of human error and church dogma, cannot be dismissed because it is an actual new force in the lexicon of forces that will continue to grow and disrupt the complacency of human beings. The Christ Being is not a faith it is a fact of the spiritual nature of the Earth.
The Sun Life of the Bees, is documented by Steiner in his “Nine Lectures on Bees” with such vividness and clarity that we are obliged to make a bridge from the Sun-Life of the Bees themselves and bridge over to the central mystery of the human heart.
“Michael shield of the Sun”
“We have called this book the ‘Book of the Bee,’ because we have gathered of the blossoms of the two Testaments and of the flowers of the holy Books, and have placed them therein for thy benefit. As the common bee with gauzy wings flies about, and flutters over and lights upon flowers of various colours, and upon blossoms of divers odours, selecting and gathering from all of them the materials which are useful for the construction of her handiwork; and having first of all collected the materials from the flowers, carries them upon her thighs, and bringing them to her dwelling, lays a foundation for her building with a base of wax; then gathering in her mouth some of the heavenly dew which is upon the blossoms of spring, brings it and blows it into these cells; and weaves the comb and honey for the use of men and her own nourishment: in like manner have we, the infirm, hewn the stones of corporeal words from the rocks of the Scriptures which are in the Old Testament, and have laid them down as a foundation for the edifice of the spiritual law. And as the bee carries the waxen substance upon her thighs because of its insipidity and tastelessness, and brings the honey in her mouth because of its sweetness and value; so also have we laid down the corporeal law by way of substratum and foundation, and the spiritual law for a roof and ceiling to the edifice of the spiritual tower. And as the expert gardener and orchard-keeper goes round among the gardens, and seeking out the finest sorts of fruits takes from them slips and shoots, and plants them in his own field; so also have we gone into the garden of the divine Books, and have culled therefrom p. 3 branches and shoots, and have planted them in the ground of this book for thy consolation and benefit.”
The Sun Being Christ apparently is a bridge point to the human heart and how the human heart, in order to enter the Sun Community of the Risen Etheric Christ, will eventually shift from a Four-Chambered heart to a Five-Chambered heart and humanity will slowly and painfully reconnect through their hearts to the very core of the etheric forces in nature. Now contrary to sentimental beliefs, this will not be entirely pleasant.
“A beautiful story tells us that when Christ hung on the cross, bees came and drew honey from his bleeding wounds, as from red roses otherwise. The blood’s composition had changed through the sacrifice and had become like the sap of red roses.” Rudolf Steiner
Will this be a pleasant transition? No. Will it happen anyways? Yes. What are some of the symptoms of suddenly or slowly beginning to tap into the very healing and etheric forces, karmic forces, thinking errors, LIFE ISSUES that connect to both Nature and Spirit? Well for one thing, and this is certainly part of the painful change that is in store for us, the painful change that humanity will go through entails that we slowly start to experience the immediate sufferings of any human being in our proximity. JOHN COFFEY AND THE FIFTH CHAMBER OF THE HUMAN HEART (Click Link to grasp the Etheric changes in the Fifth Chamber of the Human Heart) We gradually lose the intellectual distance, the sterile icy vacuum we rely on to compartmentalize and isolate others woes and sufferings from our own as if all life were merely a t.v. screen in front of your couch potato eyes.
“Bee Boy” Born With Bee Heart
“Posted by Cole Gamble When new parents are awaiting their first child, they get very concerned about numbers. All they want is a child with five fingers on each hand, five toes on each foot and five chambers in their heart.
Oh, wait a sec.
Russian baby Vanya Maryin was born with a five chambered heart, a structure only found in bees. Oddly enough little Vanya comes from a family of bee-keepers.
Of course, such a condition is not a desirable one. Being perpetually doubled over was the only way Vanya’s heart could pump oxygen to the rest of his body.
Fortunately, a six hour heart surgery was able to transform Vanda’s bee heart into a four-chamber and little Mr. Maryin into a normal boy.”
Already there is a preparation and build up to intercept the etheric and astral forces slowly changing in the foundations of human experience. Sterile materialistic distance from our crimes against our selves, our children and humanity and objective laws of nature and nature herself, let alone the crimes against the Spirit itself, will be medicated and vaccinated to prevent people from experiencing this new alteration of the Heart.
Through sudden disruptions of the currents of the flow of the Etheric Heart, through karmic shocks, and biographical incursions of stroke, the flow of the etheric life forces in the entire aortic geometry at the very core of the heart, can be temporarily shattered. There is a living, spinning core of Angelic geometry in the core of the heart, but up to now it had only been observed clairvoyantly. That is until Frank Chester slowed down the process so we could see and understand it. Therefore a shock to the heart obviously can come from without and from within.
In the film “Kill Bill” such a karmic shock returns in the form of a karmic lesson that runs straight to the heart of the very forces that make motherhood, love and destiny anchored to the stars and the organic form of humanity. Bill’s heart is stopped by the very karmic forces of love he tried to kill. It rebounds back on him hits him directly in his heart.
“In Kill Bill Vol.2, there is a death move called the Five Pointed Exploding Heart Technique and it is said to be “quite simply, the most deadliest move in all of martial arts…”
If you haven’t seen the movie, this is how it works. The person hits you with his fingertips in certain pressure points in your heart and lets you walk away. But once you take your first five steps, the power of the punch and the location of the punch causes your heart to explode inside of you.”
Here is the nature of the problem, the new forces developing in our hearts will press forward and opposing powers are already prepared to push back with opposing measures to insure that the magical Fifth Chamber of the human heart is oppressed. If human beings begin to experience the Sun Like flow of compassion out from their beings to all creatures and especially to the nearest, our own human family in brother and sisterhood, the entire power and scope of nature and the effect that humanity can have on nature will change and whole new forces in nature and in humanity will start coming to the surface.
To let flow from our hearts to our hands forces that the Etheric life of the Earth need, and that the Heart forces of human beings experience with such shattering forces – OUT – than we will all become healers and experience, not in sentimental Biblical terms, oh it was a miracle! No we will experience rather the amount of forces of love and shattering compassion that will literally alter the axis and position and interior structure of the heart itself.
Crack by creaking crack the hidden underpinnings of Nature that were left completely out of the equation of nuclear physics will come rushing up through the human heart. (Click Link)
And as the new etheric chamber in the heart arises the suppression, the medical vaccinations, like mercury that has disturbed the astral/nervous system, amounting to autism and whole segments of children being disrupted from HARMONY OF THE HEALTHY HEART AND NERVOUS SYSTEM will slowly become governmental policy to prevent hallucinations, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and whole hosts of uncomfortable disruptions of the status quo.
The battle against humanity enlarging and encompassing a vast change in cultural consciousness and values as well as a concrete psychic and psychological reality emerging from a change of heart, a change in the structure of the heart, is already underway and the entire disasters ahead for humanity are due to the failure to grasp the Science of the Etheric Christ as a reality existing in the new Sun Forces of nature and the Human Soul.
In the future all children will be inoculated against encountering such disturbing new sets of insights and this will be part of the ‘beasts’ attempts to stifle and suppress, divert and deny that such changes in the structure of the heart are not only possible but we will show in what follows, how this comes about.
Rudolf Steiner had made indications of a fifth chamber of the heart. He spoke of a time when certain changes would take place in the heart, by which gradually a fifth chamber will develop. In this fifth chamber man will have a new organ which will allow him to control life forces in a different way than is possible at the moment.
The radiation from this etheric organ of the heart is actually developing into a spiritual sense organ.
In researching the geometry of the human heart, Frank Chester has discovered how a fifth chamber can evolve. The heart will have to rotate just five degrees and a new valve will form.
“Balancing” says Frank, “is the primary function of the heart. Our inner work improves balance. When we are able to see ‘periphery’ and ‘center’ simultaneously; when we see ‘self’ and ‘other’ with equal equanimity, then we give the heart a loosening quality of balance that allows it to evolve etheric forces.
Frank summarizes some of the details:
“The heart is not a pump, but an organ in which etheric space is created, so that the blood is sucked into the heart rather than pumped”(1). January of 2000 a new form was uncovered with 7 equal surfaced areas. After four years of study it was found to be the geometry behind the human heart. Based on the precise objective nature of geometry it can now be shown and validated by this lawful 7-sided form that many of Rudolf Steiner’s statements concerning the human heart are true.
THE HEART FORM IS PRECISION IN BALANCE between inversion and reversals, suction and pressure, concave and convex, right and left, backwards and forwards, below and above, three and four, asymmetrical and symmetrical, acceleration and deceleration, clockwise and counter-clockwise, geometric and organic, and two different vortexes, all of which today can be demonstrated to be lawful. These polarities are found to be active in the human heart.
1.The heart is a brake, “The heart is not a pump; it is a sense organ, a damming up organ”(2) You can observe the chestahedron in a vortex generator balancing itself between accelerating and decelerating.
2. The apex of the heart is paper-thin. “The apex wall is so soft and weak that it can be pierced with the index finger”(3) The geometry of the mitral valve opening will not allow a moving vortex to reach the apex inside the chestahedron. If the heart is a pressure pump, the apex would balloon out. The new form shows why this ballooning does not occur.
3. The chestahedron’s geometry consists of two vortexes, one inside the other. “The musculature of the heart and arteries all the way down to the pre-capillaries is spirally oriented, and both the heart and arteries move spirally to augment the momenta of the blood.”(4)
4. After creating a vortex in a clear receptacle of water with the chestahedron on the end of an electric drill, there remains three spiraling vortexes. “Dr. Pettigrew found three columns of spiraling blood in the left ventricle.”(5)
5. By using the chestahedron geometry of 22.5 degrees of arc found in the center of the conical form, we now have an answer to myocardial layering design that has eluded Dr. Pettigrew, Lawrence Edwards and all present-day heart researchers. A design that allows counter clockwise and clockwise forces to work together in a balanced way and at the same time promote blood vortex movement.
6. The chestahedron was developed from a tetrahedron turning inside a cube whose axis is centered at the squre root of 3, and the square root of 3 in the cube is 36 degrees of arc from the horizontal plane. This explains for the first time why the heart is located on the left side of the body. The human heart position in the body is 36 degrees, which is the perfect balance between above and below, right and left and forward and behind. Not knowing about geometry, many studies indicate the heart sets at 45 degrees.
7. When the tetrahedron reaches the midpoint of the cube the resulting form is an octahedron with one invariant point. Putting this form back into the original tetrahedron and spinning both at the same time in the cube again, you get the inside left ventricle geometry.
8. The inside left ventricle geometry turns 40 degrees during systole and sits in the cube at 15 degrees. Altogether you have a 55-degree spiral movement. If the ventricle twists another 5 degrees a fifth chamber develops complete with a tri cusped valve.
9. “In our time there are certain changes taking place in the heart, by which gradually a fifth chamber will develop. In this fifth chamber man will have a new organ which will allow him to control life forces in a different way than is possible at the moment.”(6) “All that happens in the moral life, and all that happens physically in the world…the moral and the physical….are found in their real union when we learn to understand all the configurations of the human heart.”(7)
Stage by stage by stage the discovery of a whole new dynamic form of geometry, living geometry, has been applied and discovered, so that Frank Chester, in particular, has penetrated to a mystery of how the active dynamic of the heart flow, the blood flow, the actual precise geometry of the heart is actually a higher dynamic form resonator that is, by the actual flowing form of the blood and heart together a spinning oscillator of higher developing thinking.
The Heart is a profound micro-field of higher dynamic forces which are linked to human spiritual development. Yes but this discovery has shattered the deadening concept of the heart as a pump. It isn’t, it is an active spinning, kaleidoscope of individual human karma, a vortex of consciousness and an Angelic/Human Time System bridging the Etheric Life worlds, the Holy Grail of the Blood where the I AM of the Christ Being reside, (we’re not done yet) the entire time codes of both the inner and outer starry/astral worlds, a fountain-head for both artistic/poetic and scientific realms of emotion and thought. In other words the Heart the Frank Chester Heart Form is one of the central mysteries of the new human Grail Community.
From Verses and Meditations
by Rudolf Steiner
In the human Heart
there lives a part of Man
which contains matter
more spiritual than in any other organ;
also a part of Man
of which the spiritual life
is made more manifest in matter
than that of any other organ.
Hence in the Microcosm that is Man
Sun is the Heart,
and in his Heart is Man united
most of all with the deepest fount-
the fount of his true Being.
Frank Chester, as humble a guy, and quietly working out of Spiritual Science and Sacred Geometry has opened a riddle into the seven sided spinning cathedral of the heart, where all paths and all roads intersect because we stand as living, pulsing, human spirits on the earth. All the worlds come together, not with a dull dead drop of a static stone or a simplistic mechanical pumping mechanism, or the dead tick of an uncaring clock or pacemaker, but rather a central point where all cosmic and earthly roads merge.
All roads meet at the center of the Human Heart and precisely and accurately retrieve and transform intimate data hidden from any external source but gathered up from the heart vortex of the human soul. Forces of the soul, hidden nature mysteries, Karma threads and streams, imprinted forces in the ethers, a refined record and reading library of emotions, thoughts, impressions, higher beings, deeds, imprinted in the sensitive akashic ethers of the eternal records of each human incarnation, meet at the crossroads of the human heart.<
But all we see is a static pumping system that can indeed be jump started like a car when the battery is dead. We certainly have managed to comprehend the use of jumper cables. But we are afraid to consider the living super system that our blood is powerfully, immediately, constantly imprinted and tagged in a continuous flowing Time Organism that bridges past-present-future physics and Angelic worlds even as we move through the present.
The swirling living geometry, the cathedral in every human heart, that is the living thinking, feeling and willing resonator, that FRANK CHESTER rediscovered has a remarkable reference point to which we are obliged to pay homage. Christian Rosenkreutz (link here) and the early scientists had awakened the key to what Frank Chester has re-discovered for us.
It is not that this was completely unknown, this magnificent spinning SEVEN SIDED GEOMETRY of the human heart is now something that can be delivered openly to humanity. It is the striking portal to the Fifth Chamber of the Human Heart, but the strange and amazing details of being able to translate and utilize as well as study the powerful dynamics that Frank Chester has opened to us, can also be approached through another doorway. Through this other doorway is the passageway to understanding the foundation of “Goethe’s Theory of Color” and the deep bridge to the seven-fold spinning form, that we now know is the inner Cathedral and gateway of each human heart.
by Jack Courtis
“The seven sides are all alike in size, shape and subdivision, and the forty squares on each side bear the same symbols. But the colouring is varied in the extreme, no two sides are alike in tint, and none of the squares are identical in colour excepting the single central upper square of each wall, that square bearing the Wheel of the Spirit. The Seven Walls are under the planetary presidency, one side to each planet. The subsidiary squares represent the colouring of the combined forces of the planet. The symbol of each square is represented by the ground colour, while the symbol is in the colour contrasted or complementary to that of the ground.
“Each of the 7 walls is attributed to one of the astrological planets. The wall attributed to Venus is actually the door through which we must enter. That is because Venus symbolises desire. We usually misinterpret that as sexual desire. In fact it is desire for life which ultimately, is desire for God. Note also that each wall has 8 horizontal rows. They can be attributed to the Ptolemaic spheres of the fixed stars (top row) and the astrological planets from Saturn for the second row, through to the Moon for the bottom row. The five vertical columns can be attributed to the alchemical elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and the Quintessence. Thus the astrological and alchemical attributions form a grid which can give extended meanings to the symbols.
“ Now these planetary sides are found to be in a special order, neither astronomical nor astrological. The common order of the succession of the planets is that defined by their relative distances from Earth, putting the Sun, however in the Earth’s place in the series thus: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. Saturn is farthest from the Earth, and the Earth is between Mars and Venus. Beginning with Saturn in the case of the Walls of the Vault, the order is Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon. Here Mercury and Venus are transposed.
“The order of the planets is very significant. The order given here is not the usual order, but a different order. Why is this important? The planets are a “blind” for the chakras and this is not the usual attribution of planets to chakras.
“ But there is something more than this. For Saturn, the farthest off, is neither the door nor the East, nor anywhere else that is obviously intended. For it is the corner between the South and the southwest sides. Nor is Luna, at the other side of the scale, in any notable position on the old lines.
There is, then, a new key to their order to be found and used, and such as are very intuitive see it at a glance. The planets are in the order of the rainbow colours, and in colours because of the Adeptus Minor grade is the especial exponent of colours.”
We don’t want to confirm that nature, our dogs and cats, plants and everything living in and through us, are not dead to the sympathies and forces passing through our human hearts. And that such tsunamis of compassion could so change the flow of humanities perception of others, through the suffering of others that we would change the structure of the heart. Will we remain static as a dumb mechanical pump? If not are we destined to press matter and human life to the complete oppression and denial of reality to the extent that the forces of the human heart rebound on itself and crack a mighty new current in the heart that becomes shattering compassion and powerful I AM truths?
That is the ultimate reality of our wrestling match with the new Etheric Christ forces, which are not likely to remain peripheral, rather there is just so far that the human soul can push itself out of and off the grid of the Logos and the living forces of nature and the Risen Christ, without the pivotal and most sensitive human system, the blood and heart system, recovering the balance of the human abuse and denial of its soul and spirit roots and realities.
That is why, such a Fifth Chamber of the human heart is such a deadly threat to the general beast forces, so that the heart must be dumbed down, medicated and diverted away from the truth of the Etheric Christ. Tsunami like sensitive disturbances arising in the human psyche and emotions will be channeled to more and more brutality.
Medical intrusions and entire fascist plagues, against what is certain to arise in the heart of humanity sooner or later must be pre-empted and stopped (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LIST OF HUMAN COLONY COLLAPSE AIMED AT MURDERING THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FIFTH CHAMBER OF THE HUMAN HEART). External culture will make up any excuse, poverty, pandemics, nuclear war, invented terrorism, RFID chips and drug tracking identity and crime balancers, the heart is a mechanical pump and there is no immortal I AM and if you imagine such a thing it should be medicated out away and into oblivion in order to preserve societies sanity. Which amounts to preserving the insanity we see arising in society. Pre-crime potential, like pre-emptive war protects a minority. That minority are those whose interest is best served by denying that there is any kind of true spiritual world or that human beings are living imaginations of the Gods themselves.
The math and Geometry reveal it’s reality and the expansion and elaboration of those intimate forces of the human heart, are set to incorporate into themselves an even higher resonation of the ethers in order to produce, not without immense emotional maturity and disturbance of our settled, dense and static materialistic theories, shattering new changes. If one thing is for certain the heart and the spinning forces that meet in the heart, they are not ever static, nor is the universe we live in and the spiritual impulses around us ever static, dead or mechanical. They are dynamic, dramatic, surprising, sometimes incalculable, but for certain the human heart hides a mystery that will open, with painful truth to all, The Fifth Chamber of the Human Heart.
Our worst enemies today and in the future to come will be the medical professionals who have been educated to consider and believe that the heart is merely a pump. Both the pharmaceutical industries and the medical and military communities will find ways to numb, distort and control the new forces that will rise from the unused portions of our consciousness which cause shattering alterations in our hearts and our psyches.
This means that currents running in the Etheric foundations of the Earth and Christ Sun experiences will gradually creep into our astral and etheric experiences. We will encounter nature in an entirely new integration and relationship. When the Queen of the Sun meets the elemental spirtus-loci queens of nature we shall awaken to a whole new perception of living nature awakening from the fifth chamber of our human hearts. We are going to become or fight becoming Sun Beings in the Community of Christ.
“We have lost in this country alone in America, about five million colonies, each one of them having 20 to 50 to 60 thousand individual honeybees,” he said. “The bees are always telling us all kinds of things we have to learn. They are giving us messages and their crisis is our crisis definitely. We could call it the CCD of the human being, too.”
Our teachers in the interconnected efficiency of an invisible and etheric current of reality behind nature, connecting everything to the healthy forces of human Body-Soul-Spirit, will be tiny beings who live for and by the invisible Aura of Light shed by the Queen, within the hive colony. Steiner reveals how a tiny revelation of etheric light, borrowed from the Sun itself, is part of the hive Queen’s emanations. (CLICK THIS FABULOUS LINK)
Let us Review some of the issues Frank Chester has raised
“The chestahedron was developed from a tetrahedron turning inside a cube whose axis is centered at the square root of 3, and the square root of 3 in the cube is 36 degrees of arc from the horizontal plane. This explains for the first time why the heart is located on the left side of the body. The human heart position in the body is 36 degrees, which is the perfect balance between above and below, right and left and forward and behind. Not knowing about geometry, many studies indicate the heart sets at 45 degrees.”
In examining the position of the heart at 36 degrees we come to how the human being as a Star form represents the position of the heart, and why the heart sits at 36 degrees and not 45 degrees. This contemplation of the Star Form and how the human form is in a mathematical star form, presents us with the amazing understanding of the Christmas Star and the human heart. Since the heart is at 36 degrees and Frank Chester has brought these insights clearly in the video tapes you can review, and review his research sites, we are faced with how to confirm this 36 degrees and how the Human Form represents a Star Form.
When a five pointed star is drawn using points of equal length along with 36 degree angles at each point, then the five pointed star is often referred to as a golden five pointed star. The pentagram is the simplest regular star polygon, containing ten points. Five points make up the tips of the star, and five points make up the vertices of the inner pentagon. The pentagram or five point star also consists of fifteen different line segments. By joining the collinear edges of the five point star together, a pentagon is produced.
So the human heart will set at 36 degrees in the human chest with the human being standing erect and his arms and legs stretched out like a star. The flow of etheric forces
that arise through Eurythmy and Waldorf class room work, promote the flow of the new etheric forces of the heart and prepare the human being, who by the time they are mature enough to understand Spiritual Science and choose to do Eurythmy or open their cognitive forces in order to grasp the foundational science and reality of The Etheric Christ in our environment, are also prepared to understand the Fifth Chamber of the Human Heart as a new opening into the hidden etheric forces that underlie Nature Herself.
In my first play produced at the Old Reliable Theater off, off, B’way, I brought out the five elements. “The Fifth Stage of Humanity” would incorporate, Fire, Air, Water, Earth and the new element of the Etheric Christ. Since that play was produced in 1970, the film, “The Fifth Element” starring Bruce Willis, was an expansion of the themes of my original off, off B’way play.
When we place the human Heart as the central Sun of the flow of the etheric forces within the single human body, we begin to grasp a model of the mighty forces of Etheric life that circulate out from our souls to the whole of humanity. Not only do we have Twelve Cranial nerves, but the Human Heart as the Sun force in the body reveals, just how the Five Pointed Star, the Heart, sitting at 36 degrees, and the Heart in a human beings known as Jesus Christ, could shrink and radiate into the TWELVE disciples the potent healing and etheric forces of the cosmos condensed into the anatomy and structure of the human form.
Immense consolidated and condensed divine forces swept through the Words that were spoken, the hands that touched the sick and healed them, these new forces were elaborated by the Christ when He flooded through the human form of Jesus.
“The Human Heart in human form, the human form within the 12 fold Zodiac”
For three years these forces flooded through and re-adapted and remodeled the human form so that from the head, in Aries to the feet in Pisces, to the outstretched arms, of Gemini, to the Chest and heart of the Lion and our legs as Sagittarius, the entire micro form is a condensed model of the vast, vast Zodiac where the Sun creates the TWELVEFOLDNESS of Months, hours, minutes and seconds, and the entire integration of the Star forces hinge as well on the vast measurement of the circle.
36 degrees is 1/10 of a complete circle. Ten fingers, ten toes and our heart placed at an angle of 36 degrees to the frame of the star form of the body reveals just some of the striking math and geometry that Frank Chester, Spiritual Science and Sacred Geometry bring to the journey of our discovering ourselves as Imagination in Artistic Sensual forms individually hand crafted and designed by the Gods themselves.
Sun, thou bearer of rays,
Thy light’s power over matter
Magics life out of the earth’s
Limitless rich depths.
Heart, thou bearer of soul,
Thy light’s power over spirit
Magics life out of the human being’s
Limitless deep inwardness.
If I gaze upon the Sun
Her light speaks to me in radiance
Of the Spirit, filled with grace,
Wielding through the beings of worlds.
If I feel within my heart
The Spirit speaks its own true word
About the human being, loved by him
Through all time and eternity.
Looking upwards, I can see
In the Sun’s bright disc
The mighty heart of worlds.
Looking inwards, I can feel
In the heart’s warm beat
The human Sun ensouled.
These Imaginations of the new etheric forces of the heart and it’s delicate unfolding captures something of the secret hidden in the breast of humanity that no one yet understands. The first is THIS ONE, watch it now. And next try a different perspective. Watch this Animation. Bluebird animation based on Charle’s Bukowski’s poem.
Before we get to the 12-lead electrocardiogram which is a very fancy heart monitor; before we leave you with the deadening terminology of our current medical and life saving techniques, even as the electrocardiogram has TWELVE leads, even in this unique electrical monitoring device, of the TWELVEFOLD ZODICAL micro-sun system of the human heart, medical science makes attempts to follow the flow lines and outreach of the mighty etheric blood system with rather primitive but essential apparatus for those who prefer to cling to materialism. So before we leave you with that note, there is one last Etheric Portal that reveals the strange mystery of the 36 degree angle of the human heart and our relation to the vast worlds of the Stars.
Here is something that is right out of The Foundation Stone and the Dodecahedron all wrapped together into the secrets of the human heart and the secrets of the hidden Fifth Chamber of the Etheric Heart.
Here arises the strange understanding of an etheric gate, seemingly a watery, shimmering etheric portal to the otherside of the universe.
This is what the film “StarGate” was all about. This is what the film “CONTACT” (SEE LINK) was all about as well. Now since science is betting on the 36 degree angle of the powerful portal into the etheric universe that is coming alive in the Fifth Chamber of the human heart, if the military and medical sciences and the beasts’ fascists representatives do not resist the flow of mighty streams of compassion, cognition, precise etheric sciences, with how the Etheric and lymphatic system functions in conjunction with the physical form; how the nervous system and the astral body functions in relation to feelings, thought and the starry destiny of sleep; how the I AM in humanity functions as it is saturated with the Etherization of the blood itself; – providing that medical science grows up and begins educating students and humanity in the Fourfold Structure of the human being – Physical body ~ Etheric Body ~ Astral body ~ I AM, there is a strong potential that humanity can make the transition to the Etherization of the blood and the harmonization and integration of the Soul and Spirit without a hitch.
Under the rich tapestry of all the depth of our research into the human heart there is an aggressive attack on the hearts of our Children,(CLICK LINK HERE) it is lethal and part of the Anti-Etheric poison designed to suffocate the forces arising in humanity as the Fifth Chamber of the Human heart. HERE IS A SONG (click link) that thrusts us once again into the core and matrix of all we could be if we didn’t misunderstand the depth and virtuosity of our hearts. This essay answers the riddle the song poses, a riddle every human heart as it progresses must face.
1. A method of deriving a standard 12-lead electrocardiogram
comprising the steps of:
attaching a plurality of electrodes for sensing and measuring body surface potentials on positions that constitute a subset of a standard 12-lead system;
measuring electrocardiographic waveforms for said subset from potentials sensed by said plurality of electrodes;
calculating waveforms of remaining leads of said standard 12-lead system from said measured electrocardiographic waveforms; and
deriving the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram based on said measured electrocardiographic waveforms and said calculated electrocardiographic waveforms,
wherein a heart vector is obtained from said measured waveforms based on an inherent relationship among said heart vector, lead vectors of said subset, and said measured electrocardiographic waveforms, and
wherein said electrocardiographic waveforms of said remaining leads are calculated based on said heart vector and lead vectors of said remaining leads.
Electrocardiographic (ECG) Scanner™ is a new patented instrument for non-invasive cardiac diagnosis. Let’s see how it works.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a record of the electric activity of the heart. A standard ECG is produced by sensing electric potentials in six leads from the limbs (I, II, III, aVR, aVL, aVF) and six leads from the chest (V1-V6).
Electric signals of the heart spread in all directions. However each standard lead can accurately represent only a small spatial sector around its axis (axes are shown as green arrows). When projected onto an imaginary sphere surrounding the heart, such a conic sector would look like a small circle or an oval.
When an ECG is taken, twelve standard ECG leads may produce normal tracings (gray ovals) while a pathologic focus (black spot) may remain unnoticed. This happens, because electric signals (red arrow) from the pathologic focus do not propagate along (are not collinear with) the axes of any of standard ECG leads and therefore their magnitude does not reach diagnostic thresholds to be properly detected. In such cases a correct diagnosis is missed.

Heart Lectures December 17, 1950
“The human heart and blood constitute one of the most far‐ reaching of subjects. Dr. Steiner spoke of the etherization of blood that takes place there, i.e. the transformation of matter into etheric forces. One can quote Dr. Steiner, but one would like to understand why and how he was able to speak of such things. Today the science of physiology has only very little evidence regarding the function of the heart. But occult groups other than the anthroposophical know these secrets of the heart, and some groups do not want them made known to others, so we feel it a kind of challenge. Also, Rudolf Steiner, in the Spiritual Guidance of Mankind, speaks of the need for a science which will be able to observe the working of Christ in Nature. This is something far in the future. So as an anthroposophical scientist one feels that one wants to study the human heart as an organ where a bridge is being built between man’s physical body and spiritual entity.
“Sixteen years ago I met a leading occultist (he is not publicly known). He works in a realm which is not anthroposophical, nor is it a realm of black magic but rather gray, in between and nearer to the dark than the light forces. This man, a medical man by profession, told me a story: He said that Dr. Steiner’s illness – according to research of himself and his associates – was due to the fact that Dr. Steiner wanted to tell more regarding the spiritual function of the human heart, and other occultists did not want this known at present. So they brought to bear on Rudolf Steiner forces against which he was unable to defend himself, and he became ill.
“This knowledge which Rudolf Steiner had concerns ‘the fifth chamber of the heart’. The idea is that in our time there are certain changes taking place in the heart, by which gradually a fifth chamber will develop. In this fifth chamber man will have a new organ which will allow him to control life forces in a different way than is possible at the moment
“It is known that there is a kind of endocrine action in the blood. There have been found traces of a sort of ‘suprarenalin’, like adrenalin, indicating that the heart has a kind of gland function. Rudolf Steiner was willing to tell more regarding etherization, and the heart as a dual purpose organ, both physical and spiritual. The heart is not a pressure pump, but an organ in which the etheric space is created so that the blood is sucked to the heart rather than pumped. He also said that it was important to change the scientific concept from the idea of the heart as a pump to something else. It is difficult to bring evidence on this point, which can be presented. The matter needs more study; it is no help to quote Rudolf Steiner.
“The key to the problem can be found. I want to try to make a gradual approach to it in several lectures. Among the things that Dr. Steiner gave on the subject is what he said to the workmen on the Goetheanum in a lecture on June 6th, 1923. In discussing the blood circulation and the motion of the heart, he said that with some people the heart is not quite in its proper place. He said that in the case of dancers, the heart is moved from its proper position on the left to the right side. When this happens it makes man more perceptive in an inner way to the influence of his surroundings. He also said that in modern man there was such a disorganization of the blood circulation that he was able to go to the movies and not faint. And old Greek would faint immediately in the movies because of their disturbing influence on the circulation.
“Together with the wrong concept of the heart as a pump is connected the fact that we have a wrong social life today. A healthy social life can develop only if the old pump‐concept is removed and is replaced by the proper one. So this is a subject that should interest the student of social problems. Rudolf Steiner said that a true cognition in this regard would also make it possible to build machines that are in accord and in harmony with the human being and not destructive to him. He said that only when people know that it is the invisible in man which moves the heart, will it be possible to construct proper machines and to solve social problems.
“In Nature there are three principles. One is the principle of form, the second is the principle of substance, the substance that builds form – and this includes color. We can describe any object by looking at its form and color. This is true as long as we are merely looking at an external object. However, there is the possibility also of abstract geometrical thought‐forms. But these are not found in Nature, in Nature there is always the marriage of substance and thought form. In Nature we see the two principles of the Creative Entity. In the form pattern we see the thought of God, and since forms are in a constant process of change and development it is a picture of Creative Thought. In substance we begin to find our way find our way into another realm of Creation, because substance is a realm which has been emanated (with the help of the Thrones) out of the Spiritual Substance of the Creator. Thus every substance was the Spiritual Substance of the Creator. The Creator is not matter, but is the power which acts in matter, i.e. will. In every substance we find the emanation of the Will of the Creator.
“These are deep problems, which we neglect. Approaching them requires an attitude of worship, of beginning to sense the holiness of the problem which we approach. If we have such an attitude we are able to discover the Will of the Creator in matter, and the Thought or the Creator in the forming of matter. Only if we are able to approach the holy of holies in Nature can we overcome, and begin to transform matter. Then we realize that in taking substance, in breathing and eating, we are moving into the holiest realm the human being can perceive.
“Form and substance in Nature are brought together by a process of growth. Form is filled out by matter through nourishment, metabolism. Thus there is a third entity which brings about the moving and changing of substance into form. this is the principle of motion in its widest meaning. It lives in the background wherever there is growth and development, it is Cosmic Motion. This Cosmic Motion exists in every body and organism, animal and human. This Motion is the Third Power of God into which we look if we look through metabolism and circulation into what is behind them. If we look into the Spirit we see this motion as something embedded in the Feelings of the Creator, say rather the Heart of the Creator. There is nothing buy harmony in the Heart of the Creator, out of it comes every motion that exists.
“In the human form which is ‘the image of God’ we find the Thought of the Creator, the harmonious Heart of the Creator, and the emanated Substance of the Creator. Goethe said that if our eye were not of the sun nature we could not recognize the sun, and if we’re not of God’s Nature we could not recognize God. There is in our though the possibility of perceiving the Thought of God in our organs. In the exchange of substance, metabolism, we participate in the Will of the Creator. And in circulation we perceive something of the harmony embedded in us by the Creator. But all these are given to man to be used by him. Nobody is influenced by the Creator. This implies responsibility: we will use them properly or misuse them. The fact is that we can all do both.
“Now to the heart problem: Physiologically it is an outstanding organ of the body, anatomically it is a system of muscles. We have muscles in our arms, legs, etc., these are fibrous tissue which bears up our structure, for it is due to our muscles that our skeleton is held together. The heart also is definitely a system of muscles and as such connects with the astral body. But the heart is a different muscle because its fibers are laid down differently, and also it is a hollow muscle. I think it is the only hollow muscle in the body. The fact that it is a hollow sphere brings about an inner motion, because there is empty space inside.
“I have spoken in the past of Rudolf Steiner’s exercise for learning imagination: You form the image of a sphere, metamorphose it to a central point, and from this center again out to a sphere. You can think of concentric circles getting smaller until they become a point and then enlarging again. One day you will try to apply this to the outermost cosmos. Then you will feel it concentrate, with everything into the earth, and then the earth itself will contract finally into the central point of the sphere. Then you will experience the central point of your own heart as the central point of the sphere. This has to be experienced, just thinking about it is of no value. If you have this experience, you then expand again, and what expands is not the vast cosmos but it is you. Then if you are objective and are strong enough, you find that you face yourself on the Threshold of the Spiritual World. And if the Guardian allows you to pass you then see how small you are. This new sphere which expands is an incomplete and spotty cosmos, some parts of it more outlined, some less so. This is not depressing but is an objective experience. You see everything that is spiritual radiating out, you feel its radiating power; and you also experience other, dark spaces.
“What you have done is to concentrate your entire God‐made Cosmos to a center, and from this center radiate outward what will someday be a new cosmos. This is what makes the heart move, the motion which radiates out from the heart. This is what Rudolf Steiner was ready to give and what the occultists opposed giving out. In fact, Rudolf Steiner has given it in a meditation.
“The same occultists to whom I referred earlier said when we were wrestling about these things: “We have discovered since the death of Rudolf Steiner that unless this knowledge of the center of the heart is made known, there will be no salvation for the human race but only destruction”. One can call this sensational or one can say, ‘How deep a secret that even the dark forces have to recognize it’.
“The etheric center of the heart draws the blood towards it and then pulses out again. Here is where substance is transformed into ether, and Dr. Steiner says forms rise up to the etheric brain and thence to the physical brain so that it can function and so that there may be harmony in the organs of the body. The organs and their functioning are regulated by what takes place between the etheric heart and the etheric brain. Through this heart muscle, with a hollow sphere and etheric center inside it, pulses the blood. The blood enters the heart with its four chambers. Between the second and the third chamber it goes to the lung to be regenerated, and from the fourth it goes out to the body again. There is no pulse in the main vein which brings blood to the heart – there is no pressure – it is taken from every vein by suction.
“In the lung, with its oxygen, the blood is touched by the outer world. The old, poisoned, used up blood goes back from the lung as regenerated blood. There is really a constant dying and regeneration. New blood is really born. This is a marvelous process of which we know practically nothing. The heart is the only muscle that only gets tired once (except if diseased) and that is in the moment of death. This shows the eternal youth force in the etheric heart; the heart lives entirely in cosmic rhythms. It lives in relation to the time of the cosmic migration of the sun in the zodiac. In addition, the heart also takes up nourishment from the blood. What we eat goes in part to the lymph system, and in part to the liver, but finally, all that we eat goes into the blood. So this human blood (except proper and the lymph) bears nourishment and takes away the breakdown products of the body, and also it is the regenerated substance that pulses from the heart into the body.
“What we eat has a tremendous influence on the heart. For example, if we drink alcohol this passes unchanged into our blood and can be measured exactly. This alcohol circulates through our entire body as a foreign substance. This substance imposes something on the heart. Red wine for instance has the effect of opening the capillaries to the head. Thus more blood comes to the head so that it, in a minor way, is illuminated. People have more life in their head, so they get a lot of ideas and have warm feelings. If they pat you on the shoulder at such a time, you do not take it seriously, because you know that it is simply that these capillaries have been opened. On others, it has other effects; for instance, Goethe liked a little red wine and wrote some very good poetry when he had had it.
“We see that alcohol brings a change, that it distributes the entire heart function. Also, with alcohol we impose something on the liver which hardens it. Changes in the heart take place with everything we eat. The secret of digestion is that we do not take foreign matter into our system, but all foods are broken down and their forms are changed. Indigestion takes place when this process has not been carried out. This imposes action on the heart. The heart has the task of regulating everything and the blood mirrors everything that happens in our body. The kidney in a healthy person is able to filter out sugar from the blood. Then at another point, in the glomeruli, the blood reabsorbs the sugar. It is necessary that the sugar be out while the blood is being purified in the kidneys, then it is returned. Through the lung the blood is regenerated, through the kidney the blood is purified, and the heart cooperates in both these processes.
“Dr. Steiner said that in older times the spiritual experiences took place mainly through the lung. In the lung man took the other world into himself, so that God could be a concrete concept for him. This relationship ceased in the 19th Century. Since the 19th Century man no longer experiences the forces of God through breathing in. So he finds in matter a God‐forsaken world. Dr. Steiner added that since the 19th Century man experiences something of the spiritual world through the kidney. The kidney does not experience the outer world directly, but by way of the inner world. Dr. Steiner once called the kidney the brain of the metabolic system. If the kidney is disturbed, the retina of the eye is disturbed, and also we get high blood pressure. High blood pressure occurs when the astral is drawn too much into the blood system. This process can be influenced by medicines, but medicines cannot help the underlying spiritual and regenerative forces that are needed. So it is a good idea to learn how to behave so that we do not tax our kidneys too much.
“Rudolf Steiner said that through our kidneys we perceive only our own self‐created spiritual world. Therefore kidney‐ideas, if not spiritualized, are ideas full of fear, ideals of incompatibility, ideas of clairvoyance. If we trust the kidney without learning about the etheric heart, the regulator, we learn only about atomic destruction of man and the world.
“If the kidney does not purify the blood, it means an accumulated burden on the heart. Hence a proper diet, with not too much sugar, etc., is important. But you meet people who keep to a proper diet and follow the book in everything and still look worn out, passive and the like. This condition is caused, not by diet, but by lack of spiritual activity. This is the disease which eventually breaks down the heart. The blood is affected not only by external impressions but by every emotion, fear, joy, etc. Adrenalin production is changed by fear and rage. It is now recognized that short tempered persons have their adrenalin function affected by this condition. Joy in turn has other effects, and our blood is influenced if, for instance, we are not able to feel joy when someone speaks objectively well of us or others. Moral effects work on the contraction and expansion of the capillary vessels, and the emotional, moral, soul life influences the composition of the blood.
“The there is the question of spiritual experience: At the moment when a person becomes spiritually active (this means not only to think logically but to be spiritually active) at that moment the composition of the blood changes again. Rudolf Steiner once suggested in this connection that one might measure the nitrogen content in the blood and kidneys of a dozing person and a person who is trying to solve a mathematical problem. Furthermore, in proper meditation there is a spiritual process which breaks down used up products in the blood. A basis for life and health lies in there being enough spiritual activity to be able to transform used up substance into etheric substance. Moral joy and pure thought can do a lot of good in this connection.
“With every pulse of the heart a certain amount of substance is absorbed, is taken away as physical pressure and added to the etheric substance. This then begins to radiate outward. Dr. Steiner said that a clairvoyant could see the amount of radiation that goes up from the heart to the brain, and that if a person knew this they would be ashamed to fall asleep at a lecture in the presence of a clairvoyant. The radiation from this etheric organ of the heart is actually developing into a spiritual sense organ. A new sense organ is developing in this etheric heart, and this is the only organ by which man is able to sense and to recognize the Etheric Christ.
“I can think: “Not I, but Christ in me”. Such a thought might stimulate us to healthy feelings, but in itself this is not enough. There has to be something which goes through our will, and since our will is combined with metabolism to produce etheric substance, so “Not I, but Christ in me” has to work through the etheric heart, transforming substance into pure ether, pure radiance.
“For us there is an experience of the heart similar to the way in which, in the old mysteries, the sun was experienced. We experience in every heart a sun. The sun shines on all people, it shines on the fields of the earth, it shines on other planets. And all the time it is consuming its own energy. The sun dissolves matter and transforms it into radiant energy. Its light can be seen everywhere in our earthly cosmos. The same power that dwells in the sun wills to live in every human being.
“If you become aware of the heart as a spiritual organ, you begin to develop the power to see the Etheric Christ. You do this by realizing that the force in the heart is the same as the force in the sun, physically as well as spiritually. If you take this as a reality, there will still be conflicts but there will also be the realization that your entire picture of the world changes. The force from the heart is a force which will be good.
“Now, day‐dreaming a little, let us imagine what would happen if all those responsible for the political future of the earth, war or no war, etc., if all these were not to use kidney thinking but the radiant power of the heart. How different the future would be. But of course, this had not been developed yet, and we have to suffer the consequences of kidney thinking.
“All that we can do is to be aware of the forces of the etheric heart. Because this will shine, they will be perceived from other planets and will increase the brightness of the earth. In fact the earth will only become a star through that process. In regard to making anthroposophy live in our own selves, not just as something abstract, I would say that if we only just glimpse at this etheric organ of the heart we will have begun to make anthroposophy live.
“It is a peculiarity of the heart that it is the only bodily organ which is self‐maintaining. This is because the blood going through the heart also nourishes the heart. The coronary vessels around the heart are like hands holding it. These coronary vessels nourish the heart and take away the used up substance. They must be the most over‐taxed vessels of the body. In modern man scleroses and thromboses, diseases of the coronary vessels, are most widespread. This is because the etheric is not able to take up the impact of physical things on the heart. So it becomes stiff or clogged. We suffer a sudden end. Modern scientists also know that fear or despair bring about an increase of these diseases. These diseases come because the heart does not get proper spiritual nourishment.
(At this point, the speaker showed a painting of the etheric heart.)
“He ended by saying: “I have been working on this lecture for about nine months and it is still incomplete. I received the possibility of speaking at all from working on this sketch. If you forget everything else I told you today and only experience the fact that you have in you a creative sun which actually radiates light and warmth, you have already achieved a lot.”
