History Repeats Itself

Learnings from Plato's RepublicArtEducationPower of Mind

 

History repeats itself and Plato about Arts

History repeats itself. And people forget about history. There is no easy fix. It is easy to think that wars are in the past, that society has changed and it will never happen again. As memory fades, Gaia’s events from the past can become events of the present. The more things change, the more they stay the same. What we are seeing is that ‘digital’ acts as a magnifier, and accelerator. The problem is still the same. The isolation of East and West, North and South. Wealth inequality is a social and civic conversations that is not new but that has been catalysed through digital media.

Plato in the Republic rejects any form of illusionism in art. He calls it mimesis or ‘imitation’. This has also created a question what is the Greek word “mimesis”? And why does this matter?

What we have not full knowledge of, we cannot reproduce. Presumably this is the reason why all the monotheistic religions (Protestant Christianity, Islam, Judaism) had an explicit problem with art and artists trying to imitate the knowledge of , its image, his son, soul, Universe, etc. The imitation occurs in many instances, when an artist uses a portrait of a dead person to recreate his-own interpretation of the person. But Plato goes beyond it.

 

 

Art and Manipulation

Only through the direct observation one can exercise an ability to learn, observing the reality through the eyes of others, through movies, cartoons, or even just through reading books can become dangerous and manipulated.

Etruscans Language Culture Origin https://artof4elements.com/entry/etruscans-language-culture-origin

Learnings from Cyrillic Alphabet

 

 

History is a fascinating subject. Researching  or  even more so! We read amazing accounts about ancient  traditions such as Platonism, Orphism, Orthodox Christianity, and in China Taoism, and neo-Confucianism.

 

Etruscans origins

by Nataša Pantović

The Big Dipper Ancient Symbol Sky 6 Cycles

The insights from these traditions intersect with recent findings in metaphysics or biology. What brings the two into resonance is their mutual commitment to speak of the matter as alive. The four elements expressed through trinity that are defined by entangled triangle of relationships reflected in our language development.

Another visit to Serbia, this summer, and I was back researching the same scientific question, same puzzle that has certainly no answers yet it is an interesting exploration.

Were Slavs in Balkan as early as 431 BC? 

The genetic origins of Etruscans are mixed between aboriginal people of the region (Slavs?) and people from Europe predominantly Spain. The aboriginal population may have settled in Balkan millennia prior to the invasion.

Etruscan history 

The Etruscans occupied the region to the north of Rome, The Romans were their conquerors. 

The Greek historian Herodotus tells us that the Etruscans came from Lydia. Sure enough historians argue who are the Lydians. Herodotus tells us of their ships and multitude, claiming that the half of the population left under the leadership of Tyrrhenus. Another Greek historian, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, in his Early History of Rome also claims that the Etruscan were the aboriginal inhabitants of their area. Slavs?

 

The literature on the question of Etruscan origins divides into

1. Northern Origins

2. Oriental (Near-eastern) Origins

The aboriginal peoples of North Italy could have been Slavs. The Adriatic Sea, the sea to the east of Italy, bordering Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro, all Slavic states, was named after the Etruscan port of Adria. The funerary practices of the people of North Italy has the parallel to the Vinča Culture. The Etruscans cremated their dead, a practice also known in the Danube Culture, no grave yards have been found near the settlements for thousands of years.

This very vibrant culture hosted different nationalities. In the Etruscan ruins there are objects from Greece, North Africa, and southern France. The Etruscan traders brought those craft objects to Etruria. The major exports of Etruria was copper and iron from the local mines, the same found with their Northern neighbors.

The affinities of the art and symbols found in the area resonate with spirals...

Etruscan and Linguistic Research

The question became more intriguing when, in the nineteenth century, it was discovered that most of the languages of Europe belonged to one big language family called Indo-European but Etruscan was not one of them. Is this rightly so?

The linguist claim that Etruscan was not a member of the Indo-European language family was challenged by some Slavic archelogy and linguistic researchers. These Balkan Slavs, find the inspiring relationship between words, just introducing the now, in scientific circles, lost Š, Đ, Č, Ć, Ž, DŽ.

A book that I have recently explored was The development of Etruscans Language from Svetislav Bilbija, his self-created dictionary of words with the alternative history of Slavs, claiming that Etruscans and Slavs were of the same ethnicity, 1984 New York print. He calls them “Rašani“.

The Best Books On The Ancient Mediterranean Classics Beyond The Usual! by Natasa Pantovic
Language of Amarna - Language of Diplomacy: Perspectives on the Amarna Letters - Jana Mynarova
Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus - Ahmed Osman
The Derveni Papyrus: Cosmology, Theology and Interpretation - Gábor Betegh
Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of God - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Asked by @Sepherd to create The Best #booksreviews On The Ancient #Mediterranean #Classics Beyond The Usual! The Books I Picked & Why...

 

No. 1 is Language of Amarna - Better known as Amarna Heresy, a philosophical discussion from Ancient Egypt's #Babylon about Monotheism and Trinity written 3,000 years ago.

My No. 2 is The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus by Osman, a British #Egyptologist born in Cairo who says that Moses was born in Egypt and that Tut-Ankh-Amun had a very similar “story” to Jesus.

 

My personal favourite of Ancient Mediterranean classics, printed more than 5,000 years ago is Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna Enheduanna (who wrote in Sumerian), dating to around 2400 BC. Enheduanna is the earliest known Female Poet. She was the High Priestess of the goddess Inanna and the moon god Nanna (Sin). She lived in the Sumerian city-state of Ur in Syria.

 

#4 is The Derveni Papyrus: #Cosmology, #Theology found in Macedonia now in Thessaloniki Museum, Greece.

Derveni-papyrus oldest ancient greek BC

Published in 340 BC it is an Orphic book of mystical initiations. The scroll was carefully unrolled and the fragments joined together, thus forming 26 columns of text. which was used in the mystery cult of #Dionysus by the 'Orphic initiators'. It is a philosophical treatise written as a commentary on an Orphic poem, a Theogony concerning the birth of the gods, compiled in the circle of the #philosopher AnaXagoras.

 

The scroll contains a philosophical treatise on a lost poem describing the birth of the gods and other beliefs focusing on Orpheus, the mythical musician who visited the underworld to reclaim his dead love. The Orpheus cult tells us of a single creator god, of the trinity, of resurrection, of a virgin's child, back in the Macedonian region of Ancient Greece that was the Ancient Europe during 400 BC... Both Orpheus and Heraclitus compose allegories about the secrets of nature and of God. In the Orphic cosmogony, he was writing only for the "pure in hearing".
