Manifesto



1. be yourself, be wise

2. you know you don’t know everything

3. having an uncorrupted soul is more important than having a job

4. working takes half of our day. It’s better not to waste it with unuseful things

5. knowledge is becoming deeper and much more specialized. specialists from different fields are no longer able to communicate each other: that’s a problem

6. politics: there is no left and no right. we all have one brain and two hands: one right and one left

7. love technology

8. love traditions

9. love contradictions

10. ECO-logic and ECO-nomic: long term benefits involve both aspects

Commandments



But souls which are pregnant — for there certainly are men who are more creative in their souls than in their bodies — conceive that which is proper for the soul to conceive or contain. And what are these conceptions? — wisdom and virtue in general. And such creators are poets and all artists who are deserving of the name inventor. But the greatest and fairest sort of wisdom by far is that which is concerned with the ordering of states and families, and which is called temperance and justice. And he who in youth has the seed of these implanted in him and is himself inspired, when he comes to maturity desires to beget and generate. 

‘Give an illustration,’ I said. She answered me as follows: ‘There is poetry, which, as you know, is complex and manifold. All creation or passage of non-being into being is poetry or making, and the processes of all art are creative; and the masters of arts are all poets or makers.’ ‘Very true.’ ‘Still,’ she said, ‘you know that they are not called poets, but have other names; only that portion of the art which is separated off from the rest, and is concerned with music and metre, is termed poetry, and they who possess poetry in this sense of the word are called poets.’

Plato, Symposium

 

There is one protection against both kinds of disproportion : that we should not move the body without the soul or the soul without the body, and thus they will be on their guard against each other, and be healthy and well balanced. And therefore the mathematician or anyone else whose thoughts are much absorbed in some intellectual pursuit, must allow his body also to have due exercise, and practice gymnastic ; and he who is careful to fashion the body, should in turn impart to the soul its proper motions, and should cultivate music and all philosophy, if he would deserve to be called truly fair and truly good. And the separate parts should be treated in the same manner, in imitation of the pattern of the universe

Plato, Timaeus
