1. Biographical information

Carl Huter was born in Heinde near Hildesheim in Hanover in 1861 and died in Dresden in Saxony in 1912. He spent his childhood and school days in Heinde and Ödelum near Hildesheim. During his training as a portrait painter and decorator, he lived in Hildesheim. Then, parallel to his work, he continued his studies in Berlin, Leipzig and Dresden in the fields of medicine, science, art history and esoteric-spiritualism. He spent his professional years primarly in Hanover, 1893 to 1897, Detmold from 1897 to 1908, and Leipzig, 1908 to 1911. 

Carl Huter published about 30 books and brochures between 1894 and 1911 as well as a magazine "Hochwart", which was published from 1899 to 1911. 

The number of his discoveries can hardly be quantified, several dozen of which he considers important and fundamental. Often times he explains them in a few paragraphs or sentences.

Carl Huter was aware

a. that he presented his results and his discoveries only in the most concise form;

b. that further examination of its results is required.



2. The teachings of Carl Huter

Huter's most significant discoveries and accomplishments are only listed below. Many are presented and explained in more detail in the following chapters. The most comprehensive information can be found in the writings of Carl Huter. 

2.1 The element of feeling

 Carl Huter assumes that everything that is present in our universe can be traced back to three basic things: 

a. The element of feeling - from this element, feeling, soul and spirit emerge. 


b. The rest element - from this element comes matter.


c. The element of movement - this is where strength and energy emerges.

Carl Huter assumes that

- the ether of the world was created at the beginning of the universe and consists of individual ether particles.

- Ether particles occur not only in neutral form, but in a multitude of other types.

- the basic elements of the neutral ether particle are in a state of absolute equilibrium. With the aether particle of sensation, only the element of sensation is strongly present. The other two are also present, but very weakly. At rest-particles-ether and in motion-particles-ether, the relationships are analogous.

From Huter's description of the ether, it can be seen that the ether is very difficult to detect. We can therefore explain that natural science has not yet discovered it.


a. So far, the natural sciences have only assumed 2 basic elements, namely power and matter. This view is from the German naturalist Ludwig Büchner, 1824-1899. He stated it in his work "Kraft und Stoff", 1855. This view was then widespread in scientific and medical circles and is still today.

b. Based on the experimental evidence he and others have provided and the results of his thinking, Carl Huter is convinced that matter has memory and that this property cannot be attributed to force or substance, but as a independent capacity, independent energy. must be taken into account. He is convinced that it is not possible to explain feeling, soul and spirit only with the other two basic elements, i.e. as a purely chemical-material aspect or as a purely mechanical-energetic aspect or as a combination thereof.


2.2 Important conclusions in the fields of physics, biology and psychology 

Carl Huter is convinced that many scientific phenomena can never be explained satisfactorily without taking into account the faculty of feeling. Therefore, for example the explanations of gravity incomplete, as well as the teachings on the evolution of plants, animals and humans.

Carl Huter found new explanations for

a. gravitation;

b. the propagation of light, that is to say electromagnetic waves; (1), (2)

c. new knowledge about the origin of life, the higher development of life; the processes inside the living cell; (3)

d. Discovery of radiation emanating from living tissue. His many years of research have shown that
- it is located in the cell, in particular in the centrosome;
- it is active as a vital force and a force of love;
- this radiation owes its existence to the element of feeling (4)

e. new knowledge about soul, spirit, conscience, conscience and love; (5)

f. new knowledge on the correspondence between the interior and the exterior in man and in all living beings. Carl Huter developed a scientific subject from this, which he calls Hutersche Psycho-Physiognomik. (6)

g. Many other discoveries about people: body types, sympathy and antipathy between people, etc.



(1) Carl Huter realized that atoms and molecules contain an incredible amount of energy. He was of the opinion that practical use succeeds only when one meets his etheric doctrine. - On the basis of his teachings, we will understand the properties of matter much better than today. The generation of atomic energy today will be seen as a bad way and a sign of the shortcomings of natural science today.

(2) Will the unusual phenomena in the field of quantum physics and the theory of relativity, which today can be described with formulas, but which are beyond human imagination, be explained in a clear manner?

(3) Darwin's conclusions remain valid. According to Huter, other factors have a much greater part in the origin of the species and its evolution.

(4) Huter acquired this knowledge on the basis of observation and careful reflection.

(5) Huter is of the firm opinion that soul, spirit, and consciousness can never be attributed to a physical vibration or to other physical forces and phenomena. It is therefore not surprising that science no longer has certain knowledge about it.

(6) Carl Huter recognized that this interaction between the interior and the exterior is brought about by Helioda. Therefore, one can draw conclusions about the health-physical, mental and spiritual characteristics of the person on the outside.


2.3 Philosophical thoughts

Carl Huter developed new ideas, recommendations and beliefs on
a. the belief;

b. ethics;

c. religion.
