Educating the Discerning Mind.



Man is controlled through the use of his mind (nous). Ultimately, however, it is through his thinking (noesis), that man will decide whether to seek gnosis of the Good (agathon), or indeed turn away (apostasy), preferring, as it were, a life parading his ego through corporeality.

(R.A.Plimer - Kosmos 8.100).
