Aristotle at my back

Today I had a quite overwhelming experience.

I walked around Aristotle’s Lyceum in Athens. I suddenly knew with total certainty I have been there before, strolling and debating the Big Issues. I was one of the so-called peripatetic philosophers!

Wave after wave of emotion hit me, in one of the most complete déjà vu experiences I have ever had. It took me by surprise.

I have no idea why. I have long known I was in Ancient Athens and was joined here by a spirit companion, with whom I still share my thoughts, visions and research.

Even so, this morning caught me totally by surprise. I was so overcome with flood of pictures (MIMPs) and emotions I had to sit down and recover.

Viv said she could feel the energies too, incidentally.

It’s a very modest site, as you can see, with only scant archeological remains of what was perhaps the most important location in the whole history of Mankind. Here Aristotle and his fellow thinkers (me included!) thrashed out the whole structure of Western scientific thought. Aristotelean logic was to stand for the next 18 centuries and Aristotle himself remained the preeminent thinker in just about every discipline of human knowledge, from astronomy and cosmology, to math, logic, medicine and physics.

With the exception of Sir Isaac Newton, there has never been a mind the equal of Aristotle. To just feel his presence was very unnerving.

He was suddenly very close indeed.

  1. Wow, this has made my day! I have long thought of you as one of the “great thinkers” and your experience completely validates it. This also put all the “little” issues I was previously fretting about back into perspective. Thank you!

    1. Sounds like an amazing experience! So happy for you to feel it so intensely. I often think I hear the wisdom of many great thinkers when I hear you speak or read your books. Keep up the great work!
