Can we convince our youth that appreciation of the ideas that came from the past, combined with the innovations of the present, will reveal a new reality? That new concepts will make life better for us all? In the Middle Ages, there was a general belief that almost all significant ideas had come from the ancients. To be educated you had to have learned what Socrates, Galen, and other recognized sages had revealed. Although we have learned a lot from studying history, I feel that our ideas today, which lead to discoveries in science, in society and in business, as well as those in the past, lead to our understanding of each other and are changing the way we live.
