There is no Natural Law or Laws of Nature. These are nonsensical terms introduced long after the wolves of Apollo went into hibernation. Principles pertain to nature, laws pertain to politics. The principles of things are first movers on their own, not by law.

This is part of a series from the complete essay. For the aim of the essay, see The Beginning.

Induction is art. Deduction is proof. Without art there is nothing to prove. This is the second presentation in the current essay titled Customer Agreement. It is the follow up to Terms of Service. Since these presentations are segments from the complete essay, viewing The Beginning will put them into context and reveal their aim.

In this video, I continue my analysis of Book I of Plato's Republic by turning to Socrates' famous function argument. Thrasymachus has argued that justice is merely an instrumental rather than intrinsic good, and Socrates sets forth a brief but powerful response in the closing sections of book I of the Republic. His response turns on the classical conception of excellence (arete) and its relation to natural kinds and the functions that they ground. To the classical mind, the essence of a thing determines its standards of excellence. An excellent eye will see well, an excellent ear will hear well, and an excellent horse will run well. Essences determine the end or telos to which a particular instance of a kind must strive. We also discuss Aristotle's reflections on the subject.

This the follow up essay to Terms of Service. It will be in several parts. The aim is to reveal the falsity, or often overlooked facts, found in the traditional opinions of, or by, what is called Aristotle.

This is the outcome that academic professor’s produce: the belief that there is no proof, there is no substance, appearances are everything, and therefore their believers rule by deception. Their Ideal State demands it of them and their tenure is depending upon it.

In this video, I begin a series of talks on Plato's Republic, one of Plato's most memorable works. In this first lecture, I consider Plato's response to Thrasymachus in Book I. Thrasymachus contends that justice is nothing but the advantage of the stronger: It is merely the system of morality imposed by rulers over the ruled. Plato, through the character of Socrates, argues against this position, showing that it is undermined by the nature and structure of craft (techne). I then consider how the contemporary Thrasymachean might respond in the voice of Marxism, feminism, or one of the many cottage industries of critical theories, and I offer a pair of responses to such challenges. The first simply notes that the modern Thrasymacheans have only, at best, pointed to the current state of affairs. They have not shown that Plato's contention was contradictory and hence impossible. As a result, the contest between Platonism and Thrasymacheanism becomes a matter of vision and will. The second points to Plato's argument that the perfectly unjust society would be self-undermining. The Thrasymachean vision of the world is ultimately impossible.

This week's webinar will start with Plato's Allegory of the Cave. For those not familiar with this metaphor, it is probably the best depiction ever written for the predicament we are living through today. That and your questions will be the subjects of this week's webinar.

*Note: An individual can be extremely wise in certain areas but also tremendously myopic in others.

•There is a high tendency for groups of human beings to adopt collectivist hive-mentalities. This is primarily because true freedom and independence requires high amounts of personal responsibility and risk taking, things which most human beings have always tended to be averse to.

•There are fountains of wisdom and knowledge in many ancient philosophies and texts (if the Truth that underlies them is discerned correctly, and not confused with the outward symbolism); but there are also many abhorrent examples of despotism which form parts of many such ancient philosophies, traditions and texts.
••An example of such a work would be the 'Arthashastra' written by Kautilya, an ancient Indian philosopher, around 300 BC. It is a treatise on totalitarian control by the state over every aspect of human life (from price controls, extreme bureaucracy, licensing regulations, to welfare programs and the division of labor via a formalized and concrete class/caste system).

•Everything that is ancient is not necessarily archaic and incorrect; or for that matter, wise.
Everything that is modern is not necessarily new and correct; or for that matter, fatuous.

This week we are joined by another SnakeForce guest, Tony Petrangelo. Tony is an active member in the Discord and has been heavily researching Plato, Socrates, the Mediterranean Bronze Age civilizations, and Atlantis. We asked Tony to come on the show and talk to us about his research and his take on the Timaeus dialogue. He gives an excellent presentation, taking us through select parts of the text, providing context, opinions of academics, Neo-Platonics, and other researchers, along with his own particular take on what Plato may be talking about. This is excellent information for anyone interested in the concept of Atlantis. See more of Tony's research on Atlantis at his website, https://atlantis.fyi/

In Plato's TIMAEUS we find a very interesting story that can shed some light to this TARTARIA MYSTERY. We explore possible reasons for the fall of the Tartarian Empire and possibly it's origins.

10 months, 3 weeks ago

When people talk about Atlantis, they are usually referring to the writings of Plato, the Athenian philosopher who lived during the Classical period in Ancient Greece. According to Plato, massive cataclysms ended a powerful civilization 11,500 years ago , which incidentally is the same date anthropologists recognize as the end of the Pleistocene and start of our current Holocene age.
Global sea levels were 400 feet lower during the late Pleistocene, or Ice Age, when Atlantis was said to have existed in the Atlantic Ocean. The glaciers melted in several spurts, with a major cataclysm taking place around 9500 BC, the date given by Plato for the destruction of Atlantis, which perfectly matches the geological record.
The Lost Tribes were the ten of the Twelve Tribes that were said to have been deported from the Kingdom of Israel after its conquest by the Neo-Assyrian Empire circa 722 BC.
Claims of descent from the "lost" tribes have been proposed in relation to many groups. The historian Josephus wrote that "the ten tribes are beyond the Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude and not to be estimated in numbers".

In this broadcast, recorded January 1st 2015, we will explain the connection of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave of his work ‘The Republic’ to the actions of the elite (Jesuits) today.
It all interconnects, so you have to study a variety of subjects to understand the intertwining agenda.
The documentary “Prophecy Countdown: The Jesuit Agenda for the SDA (Conference) Church, Part 5” should be watched to understand how the Jesuits, through time, infiltrated ALL Protestant denominations.
I advise to watch all 5 parts, it’s about 15 hrs altogether.

Here are the Socratic Dialogues presented as Plato designed them to be - living discussions between friends and protagonists, with the personality of Socrates himself coming alive as he deals with a host of subjects, from justice and inspiration to courage, poetry and the gods.

Plato's Socratic Dialogues provide a bedrock for classical Western philosophy. For centuries they have been read, studied and discussed via the flat pages of books, but the ideal medium for them is the spoken word. Some are genuine dialogues while some are dialogues reported by a narrator supposedly at a later date.

Ukemi Audiobooks presents all of the Socratic Dialogues in a series of recordings divided into Early Period (Volumes 1 & 2), Middle Period (Volumes 1 & 2) and Late Period (Volume 1) - based on their likely composition by Plato. This opening volume starts with perhaps the most famous speech, The Apology, Socrates' doomed defence against the charge of heresy and corrupting the young. It is followed by Crito, in which Socrates' friend offers to spirit him out of Athens to avoid execution. Among the others are discussions on Courage (Laches), and Friendship (Lysis).

The role of Socrates is taken by David Rintoul, a widely admired and experienced audiobook reader who studied philosophy at university before taking a different path to RADA, TV, theatre and film. He is joined by a broad range of readers, most known to Audible listeners. Each Dialogue is prefaced with a short introduction to set the scene for newcomers to Plato.

04:07 FIRST PHILOSOPHY
In this lecture and several others, Aristotle, refers to this study as First Philosophy. It was not until centuries later after the work was found did academics rename it to Metaphysics. None of the Greek philosophers discussed the nature of existence as coming after physics, let alone name it as such. To call it such is an example of the Turning of Names, meant to deceive that what it is is what it is not. The term has taken on an air of the mysterious, claiming to sense without the senses, to suppose not demonstrate, haughty sophistication and exactly what that implies; the absence of analytics.

First Philosophy was The book for authorities to eschew and during the Inquisition of the 13th century, the pope banned it for over 50 years, along with Aristotle's other works on Nature, from being taught at the University of Paris. It was this work that Aquinas was sequestered for so many years with the mission of reconciling it with church dogma. They are irreconcilable, contraries, for the reason that Aristotle was against Plato.

What Aristotle discusses as simply matter of fact then regarding the views on this subject of the pre-Socratics, Socrates, and Plato, now places him as one of the best historians of them. Much of what we know about the other philosophers thoughts, especially Plato's, are detailed by Aristotle. The method at the onset of First Philosophy is dialectical deduction, beginning with the most reputable opinions and then proceeding to either affirm or deny them by deduction. Aristotle wrote, edited, and added chapters to Topics (the methodology and study of dialectical deductions) over the course of 13 years (age 31 to 44). First Philosophy began 8 years later and took 5 years to complete. As best I can tell, this was his last major work.

My take presented here is the most recent and I consider it the best one based on content alone. The focus has always been on the principles used to deny his contemporaries conclusions and to affirm his own. These are found in the first several parts of the work and when applied to other parts later in the work it appears that key themes later claimed were grossly mistranslated or are outright insertions.

The Eye of Africa is not just the most likely location of Atlantis, but the connection of this new evidence I’m about share makes this case so compelling that it’s practically definitive.
In my first two videos on the topic of The Lost City of Atlantis, I connected the dots on more than a dozen similarities between Plato’s description of Atlantis, to that of the Richat Structure,
which is commonly referred to as the Eye of the Sahara and is located in a remote region of North West Africa, in the country of Mauritania. Atlantis has been hidden in plain sight for thousands of years.

Not only did the lost city of Atlantis likely exist, but its true location may have been hiding in plain sight for thousands of years, completely unnoticed, as we’ve been looking in all the wrong places...Since everyone assumes that it must be under the ocean somewhere, such as in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean or the Mediterranean Sea, which have long been considered to be the most likely places for its existence.
And no, I am not about to suggest that Antarctica is the hidden location of Atlantis, either.
Because in this video, I am going to connect the dots on the exact words that Plato used to describe Atlantis, its location, and the geographical land features that surround it, which were recorded in Plato’s dialogues, the Critias and Timaeus.
And the details that Plato shared of Atlantis, which I’m about to share with you in side by side comparison, will show you that the Richat Structure located in Mauritania Africa, also commonly referred to as the Eye of the Sahara, or the Eye of Africa…is the most likely location for the lost city of Atlantis.

Make no mistake, the Richat Structure matches far more aspects of the description of the lost city of Atlantis than any other proposed site from around the world, including the most significant and precise details described by Plato. The Eye of the Sahara is the most likely location for Atlantis, and should be excavated immediately.

If this science is innate as Plato asserts, isn't it wonderful that we are all unaware of our possession of the greatest of sciences?

00:00:00 NICOMACHEAN ETHICS (mostly Book X as Intro to POLITICS)
00:10:21 POLITICS II
00:29:19 NICOMACHEAN ETHICS (abbreviated)
00:48:25 FIRST PHILOSOPHY

NE is abbreviated here since this take was about getting these alternate passages from Politics recorded. I regard this presentation of Politics as secondary to the other takes and not recommended until after the primary take is understood. The purpose in this secondary take is to present the introduction to Politics, pertaining to rulers, subjects, and the nature of communities and states, outside of the modern Academics view who focus too much on Book 1 and conditions that are presently non-existent. Academics say little of the later themes in Politics such as the corruption of politics by money and special interests, the supremacy of the middle class, the variations of oligarchy and democracy, the union of these two, constitutional governance, the nature of tyrants, and above all that ethics begets politics. Truly, politics IS ethics. The soul of Aristotle's Politics is Book 7. I recommend reading Politics deductively, Book 7 first to 1 last (Book 8 as addendum).

NE is abbreviated because I went into that and FP unexpectedly and was 'cold' after several months out of thought. Since it is incomplete here, then, this presentation of NE is also not recommended for someone visiting this site without hearing the complete version in other takes. Likewise, I would not recommend that anyone interested in Aristotle's Ethics study the Nicomachean lecture (named after his son) without also studying the Eudemian lecture (named after his daughter). Eudemian Ethics is eschewed by Academics since it gives the more scathing critique of Plato's theory of the Ideas. Academics both of a classical and progressive expression, although they like to claim they are vastly different from one another, rest upon the same principle; their allegiance to Plato's Ideas. This invariably leads them both to the same end; the common bad, stealing by law.

This video provides a good explanation as to why some jews have succeeded in brainwashing the masses into believing a fictitious account of events (ie lies). This should be watched by all who believe that they cannot be fooled, or by those who believe that reality (such as the videos on my channel – eg the holocaust lie, the jewish lies about Hitler https://www.bitchute.com/video/GbCVJE4WssGE/) fall under the category of ‘conspiracy theory’. This also explains why some jews would do almost anything to ensure that the masses do not find out the truth (eg book ‘burning’ https://www.bitchute.com/video/lVeChOWNQYHk/ ). They want to continue projecting the shadows and prevent us from seeing reality. Note “garbage in = garbage out”. It’s not an issue of how much intelligence one has, but rather what information they recieve. You could be the smartest person on the planet, but if the information that you receive is garbage/shadows, then you will never know the truth and hence live in a fantasy land (ie Plato’s cave). This is most likely another reason why some jews HATE Plato (screenshots by Sylvia Stolz Full Speech In Switzerland https://www.bitchute.com/video/KU8ytV5dpsGV/ ). Keep in mind that Plato wrote this almost 2 ½ thousand years ago.

As part of the brainwashing, some jews understood the power of ‘words’ to affect one’s thoughts, in addition to images. Hence why the Israeli jews have a manual on how to deceive https://www.bitchute.com/video/H1sFTn3k2qVh/

The first topic I covered on my channel, is the imaginary jewish Holocaust. If you want to learn how we have been lied to, both jews and non-jews should start watching from the bottom of my channel and work up. The last video on the lie of the holocaust is ‘ERNST ZUNDEL - THE TRUE STORY OF GERMAN-JEWISH RELATIONS 12 OF 12’ in the series, the leader of the terrorist state known as ‘Israel’, confirmed that it was a lie. Menahem Begin speech 'If I forget the extermination of the jews (i.e. holocaust lie), may my right hand loose its CUNNING. May my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I do not set the extermination of the jews over all my sorrows'. Also NEVER FORGET that Hitler had an order ‘ Don't Even Hurt As Much As A Hair On A Jew's Head’ and that the jews who have imagined this fairy tale known as the holocaust, and the scums that continue to spew out their support for this fairy tale are covering up the fact that AFTER WW2 was over some jews succeeded in carrying out part of the genocidal agenda of murdering millions of Germans (eg Eisenhower’s death camps, if you read MCP’s book you will learn that Eisenhower was an arms dealer !!! so much for his MIC warning, he was part of it). All these facts can be found in the videos & books on my channel.

Ancient Architects just made a video titled: "Atlantis Revisited: Evidence for Rockall Bank Being Plato's Lost Island"
In it he reviews theories on where Atlantis was. Much speculation has occurred on this subject in part based upon the words of Plato.

But what if his words were altered or added to for political reasons at some point in the long distant past?
Let's sojourn in this video together and look at what is the mathematical evidence for, and even proof of, this hypothesis? And then let's look at how to read what Plato perhaps truly wrote?!
