Three Streams in Human Evolution. Lecture 2 of 6
Rudolf Steiner, Dornach, Switzerland, October 5, 1918:
From the manifold indications and details I have given concerning the Christ Mystery, you will be aware that we must differentiate between what had come to be present in the general course of human evolution at the time of the Mystery of Golgotha, and what came in through the Mystery of Golgotha. You know that in human evolution we have to do with a continuous stream of forces proceeding from the beings of the higher hierarchies who belong to man's original nature, and also with two side-streams: the Luciferic stream and the Ahrimanic stream.
