It’s unbelievable how pregnant my soul is with thought.

Yes, that’s a very Platonic thing to say, but I’ve just spent 15 hours reading Plato. So there.

The weekend was unbelievable. I would love to turn the spoken logos into the written logos, but am finding myself (at this hour, at least) completely incapable. There is a summary here.

Why would the Philosopher-King cease looking at the forms to descend into the cave again? Why did the Demiurge create the world to begin with?

Answers. We’ve been given them. Or rather “it.” Or better, Him.

Thanks be to God our Father, who created us, and to His Son Jesus Christ, who redeemed us, and to the Holy Spirit, who helps us walk in the way of Holiness and Truth.
