Replying to LO5673 --


Thank you for your writing about the Greeks. It was a pleasure to read
for me because you wrote it so well: your thoughts flowed nicely, I was
able to follow your thinking easily. If I could only do the same...!

I am absolutely certain that many members of this list felt a resonance
between your ideas and those expressed by many great spirits in recorded

The more we know, the more we realize we don't know, and...we currently
tap our minds to the tune of some single digit percent, and...Gurdjieff
writes about the need to wake up into what he describes as objective
reality, where

"I honor those who try
to rid themselves of any lying,
who empty the self
and have only clear being there." (Rumi)

This same Rumi writes from 700 years ago:

I stand up, and this one of me
turns into a hundred of me.
They say I circle around you.
Nonsense, I circle around me.

We are all, readers of this list of Rick Karash's creation, singular
circles whose intersections on the net raise our own beings an octave.
Such a scale educes a wisdom that defines and offers hope to humankind.

Best regards,

Barry Mallis
