What is a lucky coincidence?
Thales is known as the first person to ever predict a solar eclipse (585 BC); nevertheless, many believe this to simply have been a lucky guess. Truth is, only he knew the answer.
Ionian science was a revolution, and considered enlightenment by the best people in his era. Ionian enthusiasts used to see the world as something that could be understood, ordered and made intelligible. They studied observable phenomena of reality, and created models to understand these. So what seemed like a miracle, or magick to some; to them it was ionian science. Many saw Thales as the original pioneer of such movement, even though he didn’t leave any written records of his thoughts.
Pythagoras (c. 580 BC-c. 490 BC) was an Ionian too, known to be the first person who produced the formulation of what scientists call today a law of nature. He became famous due to his theorem, which concluded that the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle, equaled to the sum of the remaining sides. Moreover, he measured instruments, in order to study the harmonic musical combinations these created, and he discovered how these sounds were related to the length of the strings. Stephen Hawking, in his book The Grand Design, states: “In today’s language we would describe that relationship by saying that the frequency -the number of vibrations per second -of a string vibrating under fixed tension is inversely proportional to the length of the string”. The scientific wonders of music.
When we compare these principles to modern quantum physics, we realise that the Ionians initiated something enormous, way ahead of their time. In today’s world, there are many individuals who are independently exploring the wonders of the universe in full curiosity. New theories are being created. New patterns are being studied. New information is being spread. New branches of science are being born, as many unite to explain consciousness and synchronicity to the best of their abilities. Others are experimenting with music and art. As a collective, it has become an accelerated movement of enlightenment.
