‘The personality who received the Christ Being into himself in his thirtieth year is a complex entelechy. Only on the basis of the Akashic Record can an accurate view be gained as to why the life of Jesus is so diversely presented in the various Gospels…’ – Rudolf Steiner Previously untranslated, this collection of twelve lectures represents a middle point in Rudolf Steiner’s unique exposition of the Christian gospels – his momentous courses on St John and St Luke had already been delivered, whilst his lectures on the Matthew and Mark gospels were yet to follow. Here, he examines the varying depictions of Christ in the gospels, explaining that they represent four different but complementary perspectives. Steiner’s unparalleled insights are based on his firsthand ability to research the spiritual Akashic Record – the universal compendium of all events, thoughts, emotions and intentions. The twelve lectures include: ‘The Gospels, Buddha and the two Jesus children’; ‘Four varying depictions of Christ in the four Gospels’; ‘The Mission of the ancient Hebrew people’; ‘Preparations for an understanding of the Christ Event’; ‘On the right attitude to Anthroposophy’; ‘The Gospel of Matthew and the Christ conundrum’; ‘Group souls and Individuality’; ‘God within and the God in outer manifestation’; ‘The Christmas tree as a symbol’; and ‘A Christmas mood’. Translated by Christiana Bryan, this volume features an introduction by Tom Ravetz as well as notes and an index.

This study offers an incisive new reading of the romantic playwright Thomas Lovell (1803-1849) Beddoes's work as shaped by the contemporary discourses of radical politics, life science, and gender. Reappraising his opus magnum Death's Jest Book in a context powerfully defined by both English and German romantic culture, this study unveils Beddoes's complex vision of history before the backdrop of the writer's fascination both with Early Modern culture and with proto-modernist forms of aesthetic experimentation.

This book is about how your body works, and about the chemical reaction involved inside your body. Understanding the biology and the chemistry of your body may help you to understand how cancers grow and spread, and how treatments might affect you. In this book, biology will deal with the activities and characteristics of all organisms in human which fall into two major categories: reproduction metabolism. The mechanism of reproduction is now known to be controlled by the properties of certain large molecules called nucleic acids that transcribed the entire DNA helix at once into mRNA and also the cross selection between alleles(alleles control the same inherited characteristics) in both parents. The other major activity of the human’s living organisms is metabolism, the physical, chemical, and physiological processes by which energy and synthesis of proteins, hormones, and enzymes are used in such activities as reproduction (including growth), activities, and responsiveness to the environment, which also constitutes the activities of the nervous system. The nitrogen bases form the double-strand of DNA through weak hydrogen bond; have different shapes constituting adenosine, guanine thymine, and cytosine. Now that we’ve looked at the introduction, we should look at the structure of the chemical level that includes all chemical levels that includes alchemical substances necessary for life, Chapter 1. Chapter 2 deals with the physiology that deals with the internal working of living things, including functions such as metabolism, respiration, energy, and internal processes. Chapter 3 is the main core of the book that will discuss causes of cancers focusing on cellular oxidation and reduction due to excess donation or absorption of hydrogen. Avoidance of those elements such as Aluminum(Al), Silicon(Si), Phosphorus(P), Sulfur(S), Fluorine(F) and Chlorine(Cl) could reduce the risk of cancer due to the non-oxidative breakdown of certain substances.
