Here is an in-depth exploration of the cosmic origins of human beings and the evolutionary laws that govern human development.

Dr. Armin Husemann applies musical principles as a way to understand the structure of the human body and the forces that affect it. He utilizes our experience of music and explain the physiological and anatomical relationships within the body, while illuminating the spiritual influences that determine physical development.

Drawing on artistic exercises established by Rudolf Steiner for developing a better understanding of these influences, the author explores the cosmic origins of human beings and the evolutionary laws that govern our development.
