This was a very significant development for the core being of human civilization. Why were those of the East justified in striving for spirit through methods based on the physical human body—for it must be remembered that their main concern was a quest for spirit? They were justified because their philosophy opened their eyes not just to the earthly, but also to the The Principles of Greek Education 27 suprasensory world. They knew that, if you consider the soul and spirit on earth to be independent, it is like seeing them (forgive this rather trivial analogy) as a “plucked hen”—an incomplete hen.
But the musical and soul qualities they acquired arose from the outer, physical movements, performed in wonderful harmonious form in the arena dances. Today, if we directly perceive the meaning of those orderly movements in a Greek arena—which could not be understood by the barbarian prince—one finds that all the forms of an individual’s movements were wonderfully arranged, so that the most immediate result was not the musical element I described, but something else. If we study the measure and the rhythm that were mysteriously interwoven into the orchestric dance, we find that nothing could have been more healing to the breathing and the blood circulation than these exercises in the Greek choral dances.
We may say that this departure from such eternal principles of human evolution is typical Greek Education and the Middle Ages 37 of the prevailing chaos in our system of education, from which we must extricate ourselves. The Greeks placed such a high value on this fact that all education was based on it. All that I described yesterday happened in order to regulate education in its light. What did the Greeks see in a small child between birth the change of teeth? They saw a being sent to earth from spiritual heights.
