Aritotle was a product of his time and culture as we are of ours.I am sure he woiuld be totally non plussed in todays modern world. His teachings in the main are no longer relevant.

the more you learn the less you know. the more you know yourself, the more you become self opinionated. and to recognize our true iinsignificance in this world is genius!

Its a Poetry like dialogue with Ancient Mine Of Wisdom Aristotle Canvas is very apt and poet with modern thoughts analyzed Ancient thought E.g '...In all things of nature there is 'something' of the marvelous....' niv sliced, '...Why not marvelousness in 'every thing' in nature? ...here is the poetic mind looks for 'every thing' not 'something'...I don't know if Aristotle was a poet or not This line is very important, '...Education is the best provision for old age...' here poet very strongly contradicted, '...Does education proviso promoter of old age...' ~ why old age will be age for learning? '...All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind...' its a question of sincerity if sincerity is there why paid job will degrade mind? ? All old is gold may be not true in present day context and socio-economical-ethnic' &c concept Some I've highlighted...very well crafted cerebral poem...thanks for sharing 10++

Simply fun dished out in covering of Wisdom... Aristotle was great in this time...Poet made a cross section to discover relevance in today's time and she has wonderfully done it...more such work from poet I'll request in future 10++

Dear Nivedita, Thanks for the invite to read your work; sadly, it seems to be too deep for me to understand properly - fortunately, to judge from your ratings, there are many far-better educated readers than myself on this site :) My compliments, Mark (London)
