2. The connection between inside and outside.

We can observe that there exists a connection between inside and outside in all perceptible areas. Inside and outside belong together and form a whole. A house (outside) has residents (inside), a vehicle (outside) has a driver (inside) and a clock (outside) has a clockwork (inside). These simple examples show, that there is an inside for every outside and - that inside and outside belong together, building a whole. The particular function will be disconnected, if the inside comes to the outside, then the unity is disturbed.

This observation refers to every visible appearances. The inside must not be always a person. A cup of coffee or a glass of red wine, shows us the same. The cup or the glas is the outer - the form, that needs liquids in the inner, to become a whole. A cup and a glas are useless, without having something in the form, into the inside. We cannot put öel into water, because liquids need a form and they are useless without a form. It is the same with our bodies; the form is the outside, the contents on the inside: soul and spirit.

{mospagebreak title=Hermann Lefeldt}

Hermann Lefeldt a competent teacher and researcher of the Hamburg School Astrology, found a connection between “sum and halfsum,” Lefeldt put force the hypothesis, that the sum stands for the inner and the halfsum for the outer, the form. I just have spoken that “inner things” need a “form” and we have seen, that the inner - the contents mostly have the greater value. The inner of the human beeing, is the best example because our soul an spirit are immortal, whereas the body is mortal. Astrology is not exhausted by knowing the technic alone. We must know the sence of life, we need a philosophy of life and also our own experience of life, if we are going to give advice to our clients for difficult and serious questions concering the life.

Indian philosophy describes our body as a "vehicle." This mode of expression surprises us at first; however upon a more exact consideration it seems very significant if we employ the concept "locomotion-means" for vehicle. Our visible body, the vehicle, is also an outside for the inner immortal and invisible part of us: Soul and spirit MC + PO. Lefeldt called this inner part: “devine spark.” If we follow this hypothesis for “sum and halfsum,” we can draw the conclusion:

When the “devine spark” leaves the body during the dying-hour, then it lives outside of the body and changes into the halfsum MC/PO.


Carl Perch, one of my teachers and also a student of the Agni-Yoga life teaching, has created some special points for the own birth, the death and also for the personality. He has asked himself: “What is the birth? How can I define this event? What happens during the birth-process?” He found: “The birth is a happy disconnection from the body of the Mother.”

Perch created the planet-picture: JU+SA-MO, meaning: “Happy seperation from the vehicle of the mother.” We use JU+SA also, when we move into another house or into another apartment. I think this is a clear description of the birth. The baby removes from the body of the Mother, turns into a citizen of this outer world and is a complet creation now.

Perch called this unity between the mortal body, and the imortal unity of soul and spirit, the personality point and took MC, SO and PO into a triple sum: MC+SU+PO. For the death Carl Perch worked with the following points: MC+PO-SO the life-element without body = T1 and SO+SO – (MC/PO) the body without life-element, the corpse = T 2.

A new question now in connection with the topic: “What is the death, what happens during the dying-hour?”

Let us have a definition about the death!

Emanuel Swedenborg gave us the following answer: “When dying man changes over with all his qualities from the physical world to the spiritual one, where he has a “spiritual body.” After his earthly death the “inner person” lives further immediately in the beyond. So the life doesn't find any interruption by the death." According to Emanuel Swedenborg.

The Hamburg-School Astrologers expresses this “spiritual body” - how already mentioned - with the planet-picture: MC+PO and MC/PO. Carl Perch has called it: “Spirit and soul or psychical energy.” Lefeldt called it “Devine spark.” We also can call it: “Life-element.” This immortal life-element becomes a part of the spiritual world and has to follow, the cosmic laws of the higher dimension, without a physical body.

Lefeldt and Perch gave us important contribution to the further development of the Witte astrology by their findings, we can be very grateful to them.
