Plato, eminent student of Socrates and learned teacher of Aristotle, once said,
“Only the dead have seen the end of war.” … Enough … said.
The so-called Socratic paradox: “I know one thing: that I know nothing”
contrasts with talking heads … who seemingly know … everything.
I may be mistaken in my impression that pithy quotes such as the foregoing, in
surreal nonfiction … take no part … in today’s formal education.
And as I wholeheartedly agree with Plato and Socrates in their assertions,
that is why I’ve written AN ATLAS POETIC … in this nonfiction.
