Welcome to Season 2 of the Burning Phoenix!

Today we're talking about the "Beyond" or Transcendent as the long term stable Big Picture for our thinking - partly as Dante describes it in the Divine Comedy, after a long speech from Beatrice.

And we have two questions for you:

1. What is your favorite discovery/learning moment that you've had from reading medieval/classical literature? Is there a specific moment that changed your life or the trajectory of your life?

2. What is the biggest conundrum/dilemma you're trying to solve in your life at the moment? Then we'll try to connect this to the timeless wisdom from the old Traditions!

Send us an email at burningphoenix (at) substack.com, or leave a comment on burningphoenix.substack.com.

Thanks for listening, and enjoy!

In this episode we'll go through two great examples from our listeners about how reading old texts have transformed their lives and their future outlook.

We'll also do a brief recap about Imperial History with Emperor Constantine's rise to sole Emperor after his first appointment to Ruler by his father's army in York, in 306 AD.

And we have a little plug for a conversation we did earlier this week with Robert-Louis Abrahamson, a Professor in English for the European Division of the University of Maryland, and also a Podcaster about Dante. The conversation is here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5mY0dlQTiCT7uGy2lCOjqC

Today we'll be discussing a question from Adam in St. Louis, Missouri, about ways to think about the bigger overall life choices, especially in your early 20s.

And the Topic of the Week is the 4 Primary/Cardinal Virtues, how they can provide a great map for orientation and for navigating life, and how they are ultimately oriented towards seeking the Truth and the morally Good - originating in the Ancient Greeks.

Time stamps:

01:40 - Listener Question from Adam, Missouri

08:15 - The 4 Primary Virtues

And the two ongoing listener questions we'd love to hear your thoughts on are:

1. What is your favorite discovery/learning moment that you've had from reading medieval/classical literature? Is there a specific moment that changed your life or the trajectory of your life?

2. What is the biggest conundrum/dilemma you're trying to solve in your life at the moment? Then we'll try to connect this to the timeless wisdom from the old Traditions.

Please send us your thoughts on burningphoenix.substack.com, or by email at burningphoenix (at) substack.com!

We'll look at Nietzsche's argument for the "Will to Power" in light of Left Brain Hemisphere domination, and also the effect of the more modern ideas of fragmented moments of happiness vs. the Ancient Greek concept of overall life happiness: Eudaimonia.

Both as reflections on the latest book from John Strickland, “The Age of Nihilism”.

We've spent a few days testing out the new ChatGPT, a creative and highly intelligent program/chatbot that is at times stunning, and at times plain wrong.

It also gave us a few jokes and a rewriting of Genesis in Trump's speaking Style!

Looking at private money into US elections, and the excesses of the Catholic Church in 1054-1302.

We'll also look at the idea of fighting the mythological monster Hydra, and aiming at the belly and not endlessly cutting off its heads, as Dante warns against to the Holy German Emperor in 1311. A similar dynamic and approach might be relevant for private money influences today.

Thanks for listening!

Thoughts on the rise of China, now soon the size of the US economy, and within this decade (2020s) most likely becoming the biggest economy on the Planet. Their economy is already 60x bigger in the last 40 years. And a global economic supremacy for China is nothing new, it has already happened twice before in the earlier Tang and Ming Dynasties.

We might be moving towards a sort of Yin-Yang World Governance now with China and the US/West, at least in the short/medium term. With two asymmetrical philosophies and systems, hopefully finding a constructive balance and harmony.

Plus, a book recommendation:

"When China Rules the World", by Martin Jacques.

Why the dimension or perspective of an Immaterial or Transcendent Reality is important, not as a "that which we yet don't know", but a mysterious aspect of Being and the Cosmos.

It is also instrumental for a balanced thinking, and to avoid the excesses of the left brain hemisphere.
