You can study the chemistry involved in evoking laughter in a person but if that is the limited viewpoint that you see laughter out of your world is pretty pale. And both people can be right, and the small letter t, truth is different for each person. Truth is a slippery concept. The basic gist of why they are about to get smacked around is because their theory is weak reductionism; yeah, would say Steiner, you are right things are reducible to smaller material units and those units have evolved over time to create what is currently here but there is this gap between these reducible material units and the capital t Truth.
For example you reduce everything down to atoms in our fancy little materialist view of the world but does an atom think? Do two atoms think? Why would two and not one? How do you get consciousness out of a bunch of unthinking matter.
So Steiner tells these silly little bigoted mental midgets to sit aside and let him tell us what is really going on. And the physical scientists can keep explaining the world through their little ways but they need to bow their heads to the mighty spiritual scientists who know the truth.
Every since there have been materialists there have been nay-sayers throwing problems in the way. One way of looking at Parmenides represent! Anyway one way of looking at these figures in philosophy is to see them as figures whom brought up significant problems to neat reductionist solutions to problems.
Steiner claims to be a scientist of the spirit, a branch of study more objective than the mere physical scientists hogging all of the credible spotlight. How does one get to read this book? But he does repeat over and over again how objective he is, sort of the same way one would just have to take old Joseph Smith at his word about those gold tablets that he read the Book of Mormon off of.
Where for example Saturn is one long Saturnian cycle, but on the Sun the Saturn shit is replayed hello Nietzsche! The book tediously describes what happens in each of these cycles, mixing up terminology from a variety of religious backgrounds to add gee-whiz that makes sense that the Buddhi affected the world at that point but then the Arch-Angels did that, wow! Every page or so Steiner reminds us that he is telling us the objective truth and that this is all read from this magical book in the astral?
The information is given with an authority unfounded by anything other than a submissive nodding along that obviously this man must be telling the truth and that this book must exist and that we should be grateful that he is even sharing as much as he is with us.

Some of the lands that were part of Lemuria do still exist, like parts of the western United States, Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar, parts of Somaliland, the south of Africa, and the extreme southern portion of Patagonia. Existing thirty-four million years ago places Lemuria in the Jurassic period, meaning the Lemurians coexisted with the dinosaurs at least during part of the life of this world. Lemurian civilization lasted about thirty million years and predated Atlantis. Many people have heard of Atlantis if only in fables or science fiction but Lemuria, or Mu as it is sometimes called, is for the most part unheard of, yet it was on Lemuria during the development of the Third Root Race that the human body first took solid form. During the Third Root Race the earth had not yet hardened into solid form so it was softer and more malleable.
