This is a tale of intellectual conjurers at the forefront of the turning points of the human experience. We start with the imagination that resulted in the formation of civilization and move forward to the concepts of the Renaissance, and the Age of Exploration, and to the beginnings of the Scientific Revolution. We will travel all the way back to Greece in the 5th and 4th century B.C.E. — the highpoint of ideas that still influence our modern world. Discussions of Moses and the Old Testament, Buddha, and Confucius, up to the teachings of Christ and the New Testament. From Ptolemy to Copernicus, Homer to Shakespeare, Euclid to Galileo — what a wonderful cast of characters!
