Fig 3.12 – “Know Thyself”

Text: Page 102

Inscribed on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, Socrates (469–399 BCE), the founder of Western philosophy, believed that the main goal of life was to know thyself. Since Socrates believed that writing was open to misinterpretation, knowledge about Socrates comes from other Athenians, like Xenophon (Memorabilia), Aristophanes (Clouds, a satire), and Aristotle (in various works). It was Plato who immortalized Socrates by speaking in his own voice in many of his Dialogues.

Daimon is seated, with a glow of light emitting white energy. This symbolizes the radiant essence of the true self—the core of our being untouched by external judgments. The shadows surrounding Daimon and the dark energy represent external judgments from those around him.
