The Human Double: The Doppelgänger

Rudolf Steiner:  "It may shock you to hear of another spiritual being inhabiting the human body, concerning that entity known to spiritual science as the double or Dopplegänger, but in biology lessons we are not shocked to learn how many other inhabitants from the animal, plant, and mineral kingdoms also cohabit our physical bodies. Just as we have discovered the bacteria and fungi rather recently, so we have rediscovered the Doppelgänger ... It is part of the physiological behavior of these beings to move into the human body shortly before we are born and to accompany us from then on beneath the threshold of consciousness with their cleverness and their strong nature-bound will."
