Hello!

We start off this edition with a quote from philosopher Don Howard. The application of ancient wisdom being applied in modern science has inspired many entrepreneurs and scientists lately. This is something close to my heart as well.

This edition features a blog about how ancient wisdom and modern science is the two sides of the same coin. The blog post features Appy and Proppy who has a constructive dialogue between them to prove which one is better than the other.

The articles from the web we have are about Roman technology that can influence modern technology, whether ancient people were intellectually superior or not, how anyone can cope with life’s challenges, and how the Greco-Roman world has its influence in today’s world.

We end it with an image of a modern human conversing with an individual from the ancient world. Does the saying “Sometimes, you have to take a step back to move forward” really mean this?
