Dear Readers and Listeners,
Ever since I can remember I have always gravitated towards philosophy.
In greek the word “philo” means love and “sophy or sophia” means wisdom.
I have always been a “what if” kind of thinker and have always gravitated towards others who believe as I do.
I don’t know if it is because of my ethnicity being Greek, and the fact my lineage traces back to The Island Of Samos considered a hotbed of Philosophers.
Pythagoras, Epicurus and Aristarchus came from Samos. Pythagoras is considered the Father of Philosophy and influenced Plato and Aristotle. Epicurus was another philosopher who influenced Kant and Nietzsche and others. Aristarchus realized the Earth traveled around the sun 2000 years before Copernicus. And that was without a telescope!
I write because it is my heart and my genes. I believe in Humanity. I believe in Greatness! And I believe our Destiny lies among the Stars.
So here is a modern day version of “Plato’s New Republic”, if I may be so bold.
“What gives human value is not our physical substance, but what we are thinking and feeling.
We are beings that make plans and form bonds with other beings. We create art and enjoy art, and love to build and grow. We evolve inherently…”
Enjoy my Friends…
