In lucid dreams, astral experience and paranormal epiphany Adam Michaelis encountered the extrasensory reality of evil powers like Lucifer, Ahriman, and Sorath - and those otherworldly entities were suddenly seen operative in different patterns of contemporary culture and personal psychology. Adam's candid biography brings evidence of an impending evil, as foretold by Rudolf Steiner, and offers the reader a comprehensive perspective and a minute understanding of the nature and purpose of evil in our time and in evolution. This exceptional material and transformative insight is highlighted in a penetrating and critical analysis of New Age philosophy, guruism, paganism and modern cultural development. Finally the teachings of Jesus on evil are made topical, and the Christian ethics and philosophy of life are interpreted as the true human response to suffering. In sum, we find here an astonishing and truly original document on one of the fundamental questions of humanity and a profound explanation of the human predicament.
