Answers to critics

Over the years  some criticisms of ‘my approach’ have gotten back to me. Glen’s approach is too ‘heady’, and we are practical farmers(1) No I am not a farmer, I have not been blessed with inheriting a farm, however I have continually been a gardener since 1976. I have had experience on larger properties, but mostly home gardens, with the last 10 years managing a 1 hectare mixed horticultural property.

Biodynamic Agriculture speaks with a Forked Tongue

Have you ever wondered why BD people do not make sense once their explanations move beyond the basic BD actions? Why they flit off into religious and faith based stories filled with elemental beings, angels and other unproven dimensions?It is because ‘they’, as a movement do not have a co ordinated understanding, due to one central concept not being widely understood.

Medical or Modern Biodynamics – the scorecard

In my article ‘The Problem of the Etheric Formative Forces v4’, I identified ‘the problem’ as the difference between identifying the primary formative cause of lifeforms as ‘The Stars’ – in line with astronomy, several leading Biodynamic scholars of the past, and the Apop medical view of the world. While ‘Modern BD’ says the primary cause of lifeforms comes from the The Etheric Formative Forces which find their source in ‘The Cosmic Ether’. It then follows that the ethers are the main formative activities in life forms.

The Problem of the Etheric formative Forces v4

A central problem for Biodynamic Agriculture is they have two different worldviews, being told by different groups around the world. Worst of all ‘they’ do not know they are confused, and that they are confusing everyone who tries to understand them. This IS a problem.

Reply to Mark Moodie’s GMO article

How ‘peppering’ works by Kim Atkins

Here is Chapter 2 of Kim’s masters thesis, where he outlines ‘the thoughts’ behind how peppering works.

Mind you I am heavily quoted, so others may have a divergent opinion……..Chapter 2 – ‘Peppering for Pest Control’
