GNOTHI SEAUTON, KNOW THYSELF

The ancient words, written in stone at the entrance of Apollo’s Temple at Delphi were a mystery unknown to many, even because mostly were illiterates but still this motto echoed the centuries in a way or another.
Modern culture seems to endorse the vision that before Freud, our knowledge was incomplete. That’s why I call Freud an explorer, one of the biggest ever. At the same time Freud was the Messiah of the Self and Jung his Prophet in a way or His St.Paul of Tharsus.
I always wondered what the ancient believed with those words and thus I have dedicated most of my time to that research, not knowing much actually. But I have heard the Voice of Socrates daimon in the Higher Self and other chants and drumming to fully believe that Freud Himself was a Voice from within, also within a society totally blind of any Light or power not measurable in number and profit.
