"The unexamined life is not worth living." - Socrates

Esotericism

Is there a limit to knowledge? Is the life of one integrated in the pattern of the stars? Esotericism is the studies of the Initiate who seeks to know the hidden mysteries of nature and science; thus leading him to inner knowledge.

Formal Science

The mathematical mysteries and complexities which reside infinitely in the construct of matter and nature allow man to witness the hidden beauty of life. The empirical nature of these Sciences inspires one to search for the patterns within and without. To find Truth one must employ the aid of reason and logic.

History

The penning of Humanity's existence should never be met with indifference. The rise and fall of civilization and of those who existed before us allows us to create a bridge to our future. Those that fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.

Behavior Science

Why has man created civilization? Why do we need each other? What causes our behavior? The Behavioral Sciences teaches us about the evolution of the individual and society. Humanity is an endless web of actions, reactions, and traditions. The one who can begin to understand this will begin to understand himself.

Natural Science

Natural Science is a systematic exploration of the principles that make up the whole of creation in symmetry and order. The study of these laws, which govern the Universe, empowers the Seeker to better understand himself.

Literature

The pen has always been the method by which the story of heroes, lives never lived, and the deepest tragedies have been told. The imagination of Man is made manifest in the pages of books. Literature is one of the most enduring of man's creations, giving us glimpses of our past, present and future.

Philosophy

What is reality? What is the nature and depth of knowledge? What is justice? Philosophy has attempted throughout the ages to answer these timeless questions. It seeks to systemically uncover the Truth that lies beyond the diversity of ideas.

"Don't just say you have read books. Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a more discriminating and reflective person. Books are the training weights of the mind. They are very helpful, but it would be a bad mistake to suppose that one has made progress simply by having internalized their contents."
Epictetus
Stoic Philosopher
