Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 5

Within the light that out of spirit depths
Weaves germinating power into space
And manifests the gods' creative work:
Within its shine, the soul's true being
Is widened into worldwide life
And resurrected
From narrow selfhood's inner power.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 31

The light from spirit depths
Strives to ray outwards, sun-imbued;
Transformed to forceful will of life
It shines into the senses' dullness
To bring to birth the powers
Whereby creative forces, soul-impelled,
Shall ripen into human deeds.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Second Scientific Lecture-Course:
Warmth Course
GA 321

Rudolf Steiner discusses the nature of warmth, its relationship to the four states of matter, to light, to color, and to the sub-earthly and super-earthly realms. He strives to extend modern ideas of physics through the understandings achieved by spiritual science. With extensive notes and diagrams, this work comprises essential reference material for teachers of the natural sciences, as well as interested parents and others.

The Second Scientific Lecture-Course: The Warmth Course (The Theory of Heat) — This publication is intended for those with a serious interest in the extension of modern scientific ideas about the physical sciences.

The title, in German, is: Geisteswissenschaftliche Impulse zur Entwickelung der Physik. Zweiter naturwissenschaftlicher Kurs. Die Warme auf der Grenze positiver und negativer Materialitaet.
