“It is the justifiable concern of every student of Spiritual Science to receive information about the nature of the new forces which have appeared during the twentieth century. It arises from a natural thirst for knowledge (easily differentiated from trivial curiosity) and the burning question of the used to which these forces may be put.
A comprehensive explanation would have to cover nuclear energy, with its uncertain prospects for the future of the earth, and several other areas of modern science and technology, which can be only briefly be mentioned to show the extent of the problem. Up to the last century the “new” nature forces which determine the character of the times, where large-scale power engineering, the up-to-date mastery of extraction and processing of metals, the beginnings of a decisive chemical technology and the start of electrical engineering.” -Dr. Georg Unger: First two paragraphs
