In this presentation, Tina looks at the developing embryo through the eyes of Dr Jaap van der Wal, embryologist, anatomist and inspired by Rudolf Steiner. The development of the heart, based on its dissection by Dr Torrent-Guasp, and on Eastern philosophy, is also included. She also considers how our embryonic development was intuited by mystics like Rumi and expressed in one of his poems:
I died from minerality and became vegetable;
And from vegetativeness I died and became animal.
I died from animality and became man.
Then why fear disappearance through death?
Next time I shall die
Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels;
After that, soaring higher than angels -
What you cannot imagine,
I shall be that.
