The presence in the human spirit of a particular object of thought, which we consider subjectively or objectively as True!
True Knowledge is contrary to Faith, which is based on subjective, and not necessarily, on objective reasons, rational causes and concrete experiences.
In Philosophy, knowledge is: to know something as “something”, to be able to prove about a thing or property that “it is what it is.”
For everything that is considered as cognitively demonstrated, there is contained a “correct judgment which is based on experience “and the” certainty of proof. »
In Plato, the Essence of Knowledge is Truth.
Truth is: The affirmation or the negation, from which is realized the sense of truth based on the interest of “us”, which is good for all, and not the sense of truth based on the interest of ‘the ego”, which causes evil for all.
Between the “us” and the “me” enters the consciousness of Knowledge, the positive outcome of which determines its use for the benefit of the social whole, while its negative effect harms many in society.
Plato says: “There should be a truth with general validity.”
The “True” and “General Validity” arise only from the organized USE OF KNOWLEDGE whose, as Aristotle says, «exclusive and sole purpose is the good of the Whole.”
ΤΗΕ USE OF KNOWLEDGE
The HEPTAPOLIS, International Green Polis, will be a World Center of Letters, Arts and Sciences, whose sole purpose will be «the use of knowledge for the good of the Whole.”
To the “Whole” belong Man, all beings of the natural world, and the Earth as the reference center of the Creation of Laws governing its existence and operation.
Because «Man is the measure of all things, and because Man has ‘infringed upon the measure” so that humanity and our planet today are in a “critical condition”…
Because there is only the unplanned –and beyond reasonable limits –use of knowledge, particularly in the Global Centers of Middle, Higher, and Highest Education, and young people graduating from universities are not taught, based on international experience, the dangers of the position that Humanity today and our Planet finds itself in, owing to the lack of teaching what is ‘useful and beneficial “to limit the spread of the woes that have befallen the Planet and humankind…
The HEPTAPOLIS, International Green City, is coming to fill, using also your own personal experience, the «Knowledge Vacuum” that is identified through the benefit that may arise from the use of real knowledge.
For each of the 94 currently taught sciences in Academic Schools and Universities of the world, we are inviting experienced and enlightened scientists and visionaries, the choice of whom took place with special consideration, to assist with their expertise in the common struggle for the way in which we must act, now and in the future.
The students who have completed their studies at the undergraduate or graduate level, the active scientists exercising their discrete function, especially in the sectors of Teaching, Research, and Experimentation, to enlist the use of their results in the benefit that will arise, if that benefits the many or all, not the one.
The absence of self-interest and the presence of the interest of the many, in the exercise of any science, is the “Bread and Wine” of the current requirements of the people and the planet.
Aristotle said: “The happiness of the many should be the definitive purpose of every kind of knowledge.”
Let us work, each separately through his own science, and let us envision a new “human-centered” society and let us order our thoughts to such methods and rules, that our science be made charitable, and as much as possible useful for all people and the planet itself.
In today’s harsh reality, the failure of the “ use of knowledge” for the “common good” creates a spontaneous need to teach pupils, students, and scientists how to think and act, so that what they are taught and what they teach aims exclusively at the “benefit of the All.”

9th International Forum Humanitas
Organised by: OLYMPOS Universal Intellectual Center
Subject: The Uniqueness of the Greek Language
Location: The War Museum of Athens
Date: 18/11/2017 έως 19/11/2017
Conference book: PDF icon humanitas.pdf (18.6 MB)
MAIN PURPOSE OF THE FORUM
The Universal Intellectual Centre OLYMPOS, assisted by the International Academy of Social Sciences, a large number of Greek and foreign Universities and personalities of renowned international prestige, will submit the results of the Conference with a “PETITION FOR A VOTE” to the UN and UNESCO, for the promotion and recognition of the Greek language as a “second language” in every country of the European Union, America, Russia and the world, with the national language of each country as the first language.
The request will include the Scientific statements that:
“The Greek language should be known in every state as the language of Letters, Arts, Sciences and Technology, followed by English as the language of International Trade”.
In any case, the “Common Greek Language” is intended to be “spoken” in the use of computers. This certifies and mandates its inclusion, as a second language, in the schools of the world.
IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE GREEK WORD!…
…And the Word of the Lord has made everything!
THE COMPLEX WORDS OF THE GREEK LANGUAGE
The compound words of the Greek Language define their Governmental and Mathematical influence on the creation of the Laws of Cosmogony, Cosmology, of Universal, and Earthly Natural laws within which Man and
all the beings of the natural world exist.
The first Research field of each Science must relate to the analysis of the word or sentence recommended by the Scientific Quest.
The analysis of each Greek word refers to the correct path that thought should follow so that it leads to the conclusion of the “Concept of the Quest”.
A “Concept”, in every sought explanation, is considered the penetration into the Essence of one or many things or phenomena, that consist a “part of the World”, even an infinitely small one, whose purpose of existence is concealed in the Essence that constitutes it.
CONCLUSION: In the beginning was the Greek Word, and the Word has made everything.
