The term Greek philosophy, is a misnomer, for there is no such philosophy in existence. The ancient Egyptians had developed a very complex religious system, called The Mysteries which was also The first system of salvation. The Egyptian Mystery system was also a secret Order, membership are gained by initiation and secrecy. After nearly five thousand years of prohibition against The Greeks, The Egyptians permitted, them to enter Egypt for The purpose of their Education. First through The Persian invasion and secondly through The invasion of Alexander The Great. The Greek students were taught directly by Egyptian priest.
Meanwhile in western Africa, The ancient civilization of Ife and Nok also practised a complex religion of divination, called 'Ifa', incorporating 256 Odus of which 16 Right hand signify 'Orisha Orunmila' (Deity Orunmila) and the Left hand signify Esu (Deity Esu). The reamaning 240 are termed 'Amulu' (Mixture). In addition each of the 256 Odus or Signatures has about 800 poems attached to it.
ascribed to Aristotle has proved to be physically impossible, for any
single man within a life time. The history of Aristotle's life, has done
him far more harm than good. Aristotle never mentioned his visit to Egypt,
which was well documented in history. How could Plato teach Aristotle
what he himself did not know ?
Similarly, on hearing or reading about The four cardinal virtues, most people assumed that It was determined by Plato. Nothing could be more misleading. The Egyptian Mystery System contained ten virtues, of which Pluto copied four; justice, wisdom, temperance and courage. The Athenian government of time, treated Philosophy for what It was, foreign religion from Egypt. Therefore most of The prominent Greek Philosophers were relentlessly persecuted. Anaxagoras was imprisoned and exiled, Pythagoras was expelled, Plato was sold into slavery, Socrates was executed and Aristotle was indicted and exiled.
Greek Philosophy is a drama, whose chief actors were Alexander The Great, Aristotle and his pathetic school and students. The Roman Emperor Justinian.
