I have been researching alchemy as it is related to hermeticism and I don't think he is "woo-woo" at all. I was so happy to be lead to the archives of his work. Now that doesn't mean that I'm not "woo-woo", but there is much similarity between what he says and what the alchemists of old were performing in their labs and within their own minds / bodies. When I found Steiner's work I felt right at home, but there is still much to learn and understand. I'm just so happy that the archives are there and I've been trying to save offline copies when I can find the time just in case they aren't available in the future for some reason. Einstein seemed fruity to the masses at the time while propelling us to a greater understanding of the micro / macrocosm of the surrounding universe and the universe within each human being.

I will have to look up her work also. Thank you,

Tim Buckner

Edit - Just looked up her site and wow is she awesome. Thank you for the bridge to something new.

Yeah, it helps if you read some 16th century to present alchemy and hermeticism books. The language becomes a bit easier to read and it gives your brain thermodynamic guards that keep it from overheating. There is a definite language barrier with the metaphysical, but I have to admit I'm still having trouble with all the information about different gardening and permaculture techniques. I am just gonna try different things that seem right and see what works for my area and go from there. Sometimes it feels like I know what to do next until I learn something new and then I realize I don't know 99.99999% of what is out there. Sometimes it's disheartening, but then I just listen to Paul or Jack Spirko and that just makes me feel better for some reason (so keep doing those podcasts Paul). I think they have some secret voice resonance equipment that sends out vibes of goodness that sets me at ease.

Just keep adding fertility to the soil around you and the Earth will take care of the rest and then you'll look around one day and be surrounded by abundance.

When I heard the podcast about your brother Susan coming down and you talked about polydough, it sounded a lot like artisan bread douge recipe I found on Mother Earth News
Aritsan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

Basically it's

3 cups of lukewarm water (~100 degrees F). Edit - Water too hot will kill the yeast.
1 1/2 Tbsp Kosher Salt
1 1/2 Tbsp Active Yeast
6 1/2 cups of AP Flour

Mix and allow to stand for 2-5 hours at room temperature in a pot with a lid that is not air tight [it will double in size so pick a big pot]. You can use it right away, but it is easier to work with if you let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours. It can sit in the fridge for up to 2 weeks while you take off portions to use for whatever you want. If you want a sourdough flavor, don't clean the pot when you make the next batch and it will take on more of a sourdough flavor each batch.

That's my thought processes on the subject.

Thank you for your time and energy,

Tim Buckner

Edit - Just realized I didn't go into how to make the bread, but just go to the post and read. A little bit too involved to go into when it's already outlined there.

Thanks Scott

Yeah I'm still trying to get through many of his lectures. I have to just keep reading even if I get to a statement that makes my brain melt. If I read over it a few times, eventually it will make sense and bring on an epiphany.

Keep the ideas flowing and nature will reward.

I picked a book up from our local garden store "The Agriculture Course" and noticed that it was one person's breakdown of a 1924 lecture by Rudolf Steiner. I had previously read some Steiner stuff and found the original document and put it on my wife's kindle and can't put it down.

Disclaimer: New guy to this forum. This is highly metaphysical read, but it blew me away so I had to share it to this great community. Maybe anyone could take some part of this lecture and find something that creates a spark within themselves. I found lectures 2 and 3 very interesting (lecture one was an overview so don't let it stop you), but that is coming from a hermetic background and even then my eyes glazed over. I just kept reading until my unconscious caught up and found it highly interesting. If it's complete bullshit I'm sorry.
