Pierre Grimes and the Noetic Society

Overview

The Noetic Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group with members in Southern California and around the world, who have been inspired to study Homer, Parmenides, the pre-Socratics, Plato, the neo-Platonists, and other perennial philosophers and mystics, not for academic reasons, but for personal spiritual growth. The society was founded by Pierre Grimes, PhD in 1967, and was incorporated in 1978.

Synopsis An audio recording (thanks to Regina) of an NS gathering at David's house, around an outside fire, on July 4th. Pierre and Eldar discuss greater and greater wholes, until the dialogue itself causes Eldar to enter into an experience of Mind (around 0:47:00 or so) so intense that he passes out (or IN!) and can no longer participate. (A discussion of his state is taken up two days later at our Saturday gathering .). Later, Bradley, Regina, JeffL, Barbara, and Jed participate. Highlights...

Synopsis Tonight in this short talk, Pierre has us focus on only one page (235 in most of the Fitzgerald printings, i.e., lines 145-208) of Book 10 of Homer's Iliad . Barbara has identified four uses of Self (αυτο) in these lines, and she reads the text, replacing the Fitzgerald translation with her own translation of Self (or selves) in these places. Pierre has us consider the difference(s). Is Homer giving the idea of Self an autonomous existence? What kind of a role are selves playing?...

So room was left open to philosophical discussion -- of which there was a great deal. Also, uncharacteristically, we went out to 4 hours (from 10 'til 2) -- the longest Saturday...
