on Plato

Q:The last but not least, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything” (Plato), would you like to connect this quote with Phase?

Well I think Plato was so full of him self and his “mentor” to the point that would make one suggest that Socrates was a fictional (he certainly got mythical extensions within the dialogues) integration of his inner object of desire… Himself… Of course a lot of beautiful things, and never the less interesting, have jumped out of his hand; but things are really simpler to me… We, people, tend to use authorities’ sayings to our benefit, to affirm our thoughts and actions and and hide behind someone else… Not to mention that ‘Great Thinkers’ are being misquoted every single second in social networking sites!
