Thales
  • Thales is best remembered for his metaphysics which argued that everything originated from water and that water somehow constituted all other elements. He left no writings.
  • Thales devoted time to astronomy and was the first person to predict a solar eclipse accurately. 
  • He was a noted mathematician and is said to have measured the height of the great pyramid using the length of its shadow. 
  • He was credited with discovering magnetism in the west and used it as the basis of his theory of Panpsychism. 
  • While many of his inspirations and sources were mythic, Thales is said to have moved beyond myth and towards naturalistic explanations of the world.

The History of Lady Justice

The concept of Lady Justice is very old, dating back to ancient Greek and Egyptian times.

  • Themis was Greek goddess of justice, law, order, and good counsel. Themis uses the scales of justice to always remain balanced and pragmatic. 
  • Ancient Egyptians had Ma’at of the Old Kingdom, who represented order and justice carried with her a sword and the Feather of Truth. 
  • However, the modern concept of Lady Justice is most similar to the Roman goddess Justitia. Justitia has become the ultimate symbol of justice in Western civilization. In Roman art, Justitia is often depicted with the sword and scales alongside her sister Prudentia who holds a mirror and a snake.

NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity makes history
  • On 19 April 2021, NASA's helicopter Ingenuity took its first flight on Mars. A video, taken by the Perseverance rover, showed its entire flight, from take-off to landing.
  • Ingenuity rose about three metres above the ground before landing again. The 40 seconds in the air was of a similar level of significance as the first successful powered flight on Earth - which lasted for 12 seconds.

A Little Win A Day

Success is like that proverbial tasty-looking sausage, which is less appealing once we know how it is made.

Success in anything is made up of a daily grind and is a sum total of small wins.

Achievement is not the same as fulfilment

Being a high achiever with impressive external accomplishments doesn't necessarily translate into fulfilment and true self-worth.

The lack of self-love or low self-esteem is central to any mental or emotional distress that makes us unhappy. We feel separated from the true Self (the Source) whether we are aware of it or not.

Achieved A Lot But Still Feel Unfulfilled? This Is Why That's a Good Thing.

From 1940 to 1942, Victor Frankl was a director of the Neurological Department of the Rothschild Hospital, and from 1946 to 1970 he was the director of Vienna Polyclinic of Neurology.

  • Spring is when seeds and roots start to grow. It is often wetter and warmer but not as hot when summer comes.
  • Summer is the time when the temperature has the ability to reach its hottest and when forest fires are more frequent.
  • Autumn is when the temperature cools down again, plants become dormant, and it is when animals prepare for hibernation in the winter.
  • Winter is when some areas experience snowing while others experience cold rain.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been around since the 1950s. The original pioneers dreamed of a computer that could perform tasks like humans, such as playing chess or translating languages. But the plans didn't come to fruition, and AI soon fell out of favour.

AI technology continued to improve exponentially over the next few decades. Many organisations now embrace AI as a core element of their business.
