Oh Nous,*

You divine faculty of perception

Mother of conception

Source of understanding

Gate of wisdom

Without your presence deaf and blind I would be

Perpetually oblivious to truth eternal!

* Nous\, n. [ fr. Greek] (Philos.) The reason; the highest intellect; God regarded as the World Reason.

A brilliant inspirational write my dearest friend Demetrios. I also have learned a new and meaningful word, but more importantly the perception to see and hear, and gain wisdom and understand Eternal truth, that is the key. A brilliant Personification as always.....Maria xxx

A profound and meaningful comment dearest friend, Maria! If I were the reason for you to learn a new word then i am happy, however, you are long on the path of wisdom even "ignoring" that word! Thank you so much! Be blessed! xxx

Awareness and understanding of ourselves and of the universe is a 'divine faculty" we are blessed with to acquire the rank of being a human being.. this basic faculty allows us the ability to perceive and conceive.. and that is the rank of the wise! if I dare say!.. A brilliant profound write dear Demetrios. A FAV. Philosophy is an infinite world where the mind navigates in its wonders and blossoms in the beauty of its light. Blessed as you are Philosophy! Keep writing in light! Stay blessed.

There it is the... missing comment: The epitome of related comments! Thank you so much for your praise and your appreciation. I think as an older person I have a moral responsibility to write on things others may not not touch for they are not popular. Thank you also for your generosity and kindness. God bless you dearest friend!

I am happy if I have taught you an " old Greek word" dear, Sunlite! Your language though is much reacher than my English. Thank you!

My dearest, Lyric , philosophy since its birth is poetic! Who am I to make it so when A Socrates, a Plato and an Aristotle has made it poetic thousands of years ago? I appreciate your kindness though and thank you so much for your warm words!
