Civilization, civilian, civil.

Civilization, civilian, civil. – all those words come from Citta in Sanskrit

Citta means the deep mind.

Lincoln said:

“Rightness is provided with the instruments of safety by the heavens.”

Three men founded Western culture; above all others.

Parmenides, Pythagoras and Empedocles.

Through them the arts, law, the natural sciences and Western philosophy, their foundations were laid.

In the line by Lincoln, one sees a man aligned with those foundations.
