This essay on the metamorphosis in the Foundation Stone Rhythms, it’s mainly based on the first Goetheanum Column sockets and its fundaments; which (of the human 3-fold) relates to the physical body. Which is like walking through Chartres Cathedral’ labyrinth, but not looking at its windows and ceiling; its soul and spirit respectively. This essay might have just touch upon the first Goetheanum’ and the Foundation Stone’s soul and spirit; it needs another essay.
