During the 1930s The Laurence Professor of Ancient Philosophy at Cambridge University, F M Cornford, the author of Principium Sapientiae: The Origins of Greek Philosophical Thought, was elected a Fellow of the British Academy. His book Before and After Socrates has been continually used to influence academic thinking throughout the entire world for over 80 years. Since 1932 Cambridge University has published 10 editions of this work. Cornford's brilliantly argued scholarly works can be considered to be anchored upon a trite nonsensical religious assumption exposed by Sir Isaac Newton within his unpublished more profound natural philosophy, discovered last century which balanced the mechanical description of the universe.
Tens of millions of pounds were spent by Cambridge University to research the vast new technologies associated with Newton's guidelines, which established a basis for the science of quantum biology. Eminent scientists knew better than to challenge the edict that classified Newton's balanced science as an insane heresy. Nonetheless, that technology is now being researched worldwide and ethical life-science discoveries have been made, making it perfectly obvious that Sir Isaac Newton was not insane when he wrote about his balancing physics principles derived from the Classical Greek life-science. As Sir C P Snow warned the world during his 1959 Rede Lecture at Cambridge University, unless modern science shakes off it present obsession with the totally destructive law that governs it and rebalances itself with with the Classical Greek Humanities, then civilisation will be destroyed.
Francis MacDonald considered that Plato was one of the founding fathers of the Christian Church. This philosophical statement can be considered to be nonsensical, linked to a general British attitude that the Classical Greek life-science, as a pagan phenomenon, did not quite match up to the academic standards of British Christian Academia. Encyclopaedia Britannica advises that in the 5th Century St Augustine was the mind which mostly completely fused the Platonic tradition of Greek philosophy with the religion of the New Testament. That accomplishment may be quite correct but, St Augustine's association of female sexuality with the destructive evil of unformed matter within the atom was indeed insane rather than Sir Isaac Newton's contention that religion has corrupted science.
During that time Pope Cyril presided when a Christian mob burnt scrolls belonging to the Great Library of Alexandria and murdered its custodian, the mathematician Hypatia. If the Classical Greek life-science has been corrupted by the Christian religion it can be considered reasonable to investigate the opinion of the great scientist, Sir Isaac Newton who developed a heretical world view based upon the physics principles that once upheld that lost science.
The NASA Astrophysics High Energy Division Library has published that the Classical Greek life-science was based upon the mathematics of fractal logic. Sir Isaac Newton's unpublished heresy papers, discovered during the 20th Century, contained his certain conviction that a more profound natural philosophy existed to balance the mechanical description of the universe. It is common knowledge that Newton, in opposition to the scientific world view of his time, considered that the universe was infinite. The logic to accommodate that concept is the infinite property of fractal logic.
Newton's balancing physics principles were the same ones that upheld the lost Greek fractal logic life-science and he wrote that both ancient science and spiritual knowledge had been corrupted by religion. One of Newton's specific research interests concerned the generation of wealth within the science of economics. An investigation into Plato's concepts of spiritual reality reveal relevant political and economic concepts which might be used in computer science to make economic models to create new futuristic human survival simulations.
Plato's spiritual reality concepts have been brought into a 21st Century life-science focus. Amy Edmonson, Novatis Professor at Harvard University, in her online book entitled The Fuller Explanation, wrote that Buckminster Fuller had used Plato's spiritual engineering principles to develop life-energy physics concepts that completely challenged the present Western culture's world view. The three 1996 Nobel Laureates in Chemistry, using nano-technology, located the fractal logic of Fullerene phenomena functioning within the DNA. They have established a medical fractal life-science institute associated with Plato's spiritual engineering principles.
During the 15th Century, Cosimo Medici re-established the Platonic Academy in Florence, banished in the 6th Century by the Christian Emperor Justinian, because it was considered pagan. Under the directorship of Marsilio Ficino the Classical Greek life science about the functioning of the atoms of the soul was reintroduced into science. The moon's influence on the female fertility cycle was linked to harmonic resonance within the atomic metabolism as a science to explain a mother's love and compassion for children. Epicurus' Science of universal love was later taught by the scientist, Giordano Bruno, at Oxford University. Lured back to Rome, Bruno was imprisoned, tortured and burnt alive in 1600.
We can assume that Sir Isaac Newton was correct in his assumption that the Christian religion has seriously contaminated science. St Thomas Aquinas' religious wisdom, heralded as an important economic revelation, was used by Thomas Malthus to establish economic policies at the East India Company's College. Charles Darwin cited Malthus' Principles of population essay, which had become synonymous with the second law of thermodynamics, as the basis of the life-science that influenced President Woodrow Wilson and his colleague, Alexander Graham Bell, to advocate Darwinian Eugenics in America, from which Adolph Hitler derived his Nazi policies. Blind obedience to the dictates of the Church's understanding of that law threw Sir Isaac Newton's balanced world view into the scientific rubbish bin.
It is not at all unreasonable to write that the Church managed to inspire a fanatical, unbalanced worship of the second law of thermodynamics, which absolutely prohibits the existence of the fractal life-science from being associated with Plato's now validated spiritual engineering principles. Albert Einstein's religious colleague, Sir Arthur Eddington, referred to the second law as The supreme metaphysical law of the entire universe. Other eminent scientists have classified it in terms from being Diabolical to being insane, but the general public has no idea that Western culture is totally governed by its destructive ethos, in the form of an unbalanced global economic rationalism.
When economic law purports to embrace an aspect of life-science in the form of eternal passions as part of the fabric of Western culture, then the logic upholding Western culture can be considered to be incoherent. The Australian Government's Productivity Commission, 2008, Behavioural Economics and Public Policy, Roundtable Proceedings, Productivity Commission, Canberra, contains reference to eternal passions and reasons affecting long term economic policies. The only logic that allows those words to have any reality is fractal logic, which cannot possibly be reasoned about by the Australian Government. However, the Government report does advise that The views expressed in these papers are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Productivity Commission. Nonetheless, it is obvious that the idea exists within economic parlance. Adam Smith, the author of The Wealth of Nations, fused the concept of the eternal nature of economic law into a spiritual concept.
Having presented argument that the Church contaminated the structure of Classical Greek life-science and as a result allowed Western culture to be governed by an unbalanced global economic rationalism, it follows that Plato's economic and political concepts might be given a brief examination.
The inspiration for Plato's The Republic was Solon's brief governorship of Athens during the 6th century BCE, during which Solon's economic policies prevented all out rebellion in Athens by re distributing wealth and replacing Draco's cruel punishments, used by the aristocracy to terrorise the populace into submission. When Solon restored Athenian economic power as a cultural beacon to other Greek states, the aristocracy had Solon removed from office to pave the way for Pesistratus to take over in Athens to re-establish tyranny, leading to disastrous military adventures. However, Solon's constitution for the republic was to become the idealised model for later Western democracies.
The Platonic tradition of Greek philosophy was about creating a science from the ancient Egyptian use of fractal geometrical logic to place justice, mercy and compassion into the fabric of political government. This fusing of ethics into the fractal logic Nous of Anaxagoras, a whirling god-like force that acted upon primordial particles to form the worlds and evolve intelligence, was described by Aristotle to be an ethical science to guide ennobling government. The reason that Classical Greek fractal life-science has been corrupted by the Christian Church is because the Nous, as a physics phenomenon, challenged the concept of the Christian God, whose law of total destruction became synonymous with the ancient Greek god, Diabolos.
A reason to examine this issue rather carefully is because the objective of Classical Greek life-science was to ensure that civilisation, by becoming part of the health of the universe, would not become extinct. Plato defined those who did not understand the engineering principles of spiritual reality as barbaric engineers, and he considered them to be continually obsessed with warfare. If that is considered to be an evil obsession, then we need to be aware of Plato's definition of evil as defined in his Timaeus, a destructive property of unformed matter within the atom.
Apart from the Platonic spiritual reality now becoming basic to a new rigorous fractal logic life-science, the fractal life-science methodology needed to generate futuristic human survival simulations is well known, its precursor research mathematics for simple life-forms being reprinted in 1990 by the world's largest technological research institution as one of the important discoveries of the 20th Century.
