Secret of the Word

From AnthroWiki

The Secret of the Word, the Logos, is the sixth of the seven secrets of life. It will come to full development on the sixth planetary stage of world evolution, the New Venus. On a smaller scale, it occurs wherever a temporal series of evolution is on the sixth stage. This is the case, for example, with the future Slavic cultural epoch which will follow our present consciousness-soul age around 3573 AD.

„On the sixth planet, in further development, everything is eliminated that is senseless, that which shows itself on the lower mental plan as senseless, illogical. This sixth planet is the planet of the Logos, of the Word, because the Word gives meaning.“ (Lit.:GA 89, p. 147)
