The apple…

The apple.

A mysterious fruit, once symbolizing all fruits and being synonym to evil. Playing a significant role in many stories in the mythologies of many people and in Christianity as well. From the apples of Hesperides and the apple with which Paris started the Trojan War, to the apple for which the ghost of Aristotle talked about while dying, to the apple which made God cast us away from Paradise, to Newton’s apple and to the apple of Turing, to the apple used in folk proverbs, [1] [2] [3] the apple continues to try to remind us of something which we have forgotten.

But what could that be?

What do all these stories want to tell us exactly?

Apples are now the subject of genetic experiments. [4] And they seem to be the link between ancient fruits and modern fruits, carrying a larger genome than any other fruit. [5]

Only the fools read the myths as if they are fairy tales. We do not know when all these myths mean and what is it that the apply symbolizes, but that just means that we must intensify our efforts to remember what we have forgotten.

Keep searching.

I would already be dead…

if it wasn’t for the smell of that apple…

Cellular grids, tetractys, geo-locating, identifying…

Scientists say it is remarkably easy to identify a mobile phone user from just a few pieces of location information. Whenever a phone is switched on, its connection to the network means its position and movement can be plotted. This data is given anonymously to third parties, both to drive services for the user and to target advertisements. But a study in Scientific Reports warns that human mobility patterns are so predictable it is possible to identify a user from only four data points. [1]

Only 4 geo-points suffice to identify you…

We are all living in the same world. And we are all unique. But what we cannot easily see, is how similar or close we are to each other. We walk next to each other. Going on our way along with crouds of fellow co-workers. What “separates” us from them are only four points in a cellular phone grid, holding true to what Pythagoras maintains about the power of the number 10 lying in the number 4 – the tetractys (Greek τετρακτύς) (Aetius 1.3.8) [2].

Ancient wisdom, re-discovered…

The Pope, an announcement in Latin, ancient knowledge…

The Pope announced his resignation in Latin. Not just written Latin. He also SPOKE Latin in the meeting with the Cardinals. [source 1=”<a” href=”; 2=”target="_blank">Yahoo!” 3=”News</a>” language=”:”][/source] And this is not the first time Latin (an otherwise thought “dead” language) the Popse uses Latin. He recently used Latin to make a Tweet! (see here) Even though many people could laugh or react negatively to such moves, this is one of the main aspects of Religion Philosophy: upholding ancient wisdom and bringing it in today for all of us “modern” people to see. In the era of “be modern or die” we should really pay attention to such efforts.

See the Latin text of the announcement here [1]:

Fratres carissimi

Non solum propter tres canonizationes ad hoc Consistorium vos convocavi, sed etiam ut vobis decisionem magni momenti pro Ecclesiae vitae communicem. Conscientia mea iterum atque iterum coram Deo explorata ad cognitionem certam perveni vires meas ingravescente aetate non iam aptas esse ad munus Petrinum aeque administrandum.

Bene conscius sum hoc munus secundum suam essentiam spiritualem non solum agendo et loquendo exsequi debere, sed non minus patiendo et orando. Attamen in mundo nostri temporis rapidis mutationibus subiecto et quaestionibus magni ponderis pro vita fidei perturbato ad navem Sancti Petri gubernandam et ad annuntiandum Evangelium etiam vigor quidam corporis et animae necessarius est, qui ultimis mensibus in me modo tali minuitur, ut incapacitatem meam ad ministerium mihi commissum bene administrandum agnoscere debeam. Quapropter bene conscius ponderis huius actus plena libertate declaro me ministerio Episcopi Romae, Successoris Sancti Petri, mihi per manus Cardinalium die 19 aprilis MMV commissum renuntiare ita ut a die 28 februarii MMXIII, hora 29, sedes Romae, sedes Sancti Petri vacet et Conclave ad eligendum novum Summum Pontificem ab his quibus competit convocandum esse.

Fratres carissimi, ex toto corde gratias ago vobis pro omni amore et labore, quo mecum pondus ministerii mei portastis et veniam peto pro omnibus defectibus meis. Nunc autem Sanctam Dei Ecclesiam curae Summi eius Pastoris, Domini nostri Iesu Christi confidimus sanctamque eius Matrem Mariam imploramus, ut patribus Cardinalibus in eligendo novo Summo Pontifice materna sua bonitate assistat. Quod ad me attinet etiam in futuro vita orationi dedicata Sanctae Ecclesiae Dei toto ex corde servire velim.

Ex Aedibus Vaticanis, die 10 mensis februarii MMXIII
