The true meaning of Platonic love now cracked!

Platonic love is a chaste and strong type of love that is non-sexual, so says Wiki, and so we have believed for 2500 years. We are made to believe that true love is to transcend ourselves; a means of ascent to contemplation of the divine, which idea gave birth to Tristan & Isolde as the archetype of  Romantic love. (In my version I even removed whole hot bed scenes for my own convenience.)

The term amor platonicus was coined in by  Marsilio Ficino, a scholar from 15th century Florence. Platonic love in the original sense of the term is examined in Symposium, in which the Greek “divorced” love and eros. But.

My last week has been an absolute THRILL of “Buts” and “Ifs”. Firstly it ended with the climax that Einstein is defeated. In Cern they have discovered something that might shatter the ground of our future. My new week begins with the uncertainty of the past.  Although scholars have been denying for centuries that there is such a thing as “Plato code”, a science historian — his name is not Dan Brown, god forbid — has found the proof that we are wrong, all of us. Chipped, chapped, chopped, say bye bye to your soulmate, dear one. Plato code is cracked! Listen to what author Jay Kennedy has to say ~

  4. So! Nor Plato, nor troubadours nor the renaissance wise were chaste like virgins – yet does this annihilate the idea of transcendence (if it doesn’t merely mean ‘sublimation’)?
