In biodynamic agriculture we call the spiritual beings behind the different plant species archetypal group souls. The stars and planets are the physical expression of the Elohim and the other ranks of spiritual hierarchies.
The Hebrew word Elohim means a plurality of Gods. If you do not alter the translation, Genesis 1:1 translates to, In the beginning Gods (Elohim) created heaven and earth.
Who are these heavenly beings that created and continue to create life?
The only two beings that appear in human form but are without human ancestry that I can find in the Bible are mentioned by Saint Paul in Hebrews. They are Melchisedec from the Old Testament and Christ in the New Testament.
Hebrews 7:1 and 7:3 is quoted as follows:
Without father , without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
And in Genesis 3:22:
They are the creators of humans, plants and animals.
If we examine Genesis 1:11 it states,
Here the Head Eloi (some call the individual members of the Elohim, Eloah) is telling the other members of the Elohim to create different species of plants, each one according to "his kind". This is why we have the different varieties of plants. Each God created a different plant according to His individuality. And this is where plants, thus plant seeds have their origin.
In the book Agriculture by Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Steiner states :
This knowledge has been forgotten today. But the farther we go back in human history the more humanity knew the above mentioned facts.
In Steiner's book Atlantis he states:
Steiner goes on to say that the air was heavier and water lighter in the Atlantean epoch and these different environmental conditions allowed them to use the life force in the seeds to fly their airships just above the ground. The seeds were not burned but their germinal power was extracted from them. Obviously the link between the Atlanteans, the plant seeds and the above mentioned Biblical beings was much closer than it is today.
To get the materialistic perspective of a 21st century human on the Altlantean spiritual technology, I went to one of the best mechanics I know, Steve Falconi of Southside Truck and Tractor with the above mentioned material. He said, With the air being heavier in Atlantis, if these air ships had a containment mechanism in them to absorb the gases coming from the seed piles, this could create an energy that would propel their air ships.
So, we can say a plant seed is the earthly, ground connection for the cosmic, archetypal spiritual beings (Angels or Gods as you prefer) that create the different plant species "after his kind" according to the Bible. The heavens and the spiritual beings that inhabit these cosmic regions thus create life.
Mr. Falconi will give a more detailed analysis of the Atlantean flying vessels in the next article.
