THE TRIPARTATE HUMAN: MIND
In Western Civilization the idea that
there are three-parts
that make up a human being: mind,
body and spirit came from Socrates and it was written
down by his pupil and friend Plato in BOOK IX of the
"The second proof is derived from the
nature of the soul: seeing that the individual soul, like
the State, has been divided by us into three principles, the
division may, I think, furnish a new demonstration.
Of what nature?
It seems to me that to these three
principles three pleasures correspond; also
and governing powers.
How do you mean? he said.
There is one principle with which, as we were saying,
a man learns,
another with which he is
the third, having many forms, has no special

from the extraordinary strength and
vehemence of the
desires of eating and drinking and the other sensual
appetites which are the main elements of it; also
money-loving, because such desires are generally satisfied
by the help of money.
That is true, he said.
MONEY BOUGHT PLEASURES like: living to eat, fine wines and alcoholic drinks,
exotic cars, mansions, estates, having to buy the
latest cell phone/computer.

If we were to say that the loves and pleasures of this
third part were concerned with gain, we should then be able
to fall back on a single notion; and might truly and
intelligibly describe this part of the soul as loving gain

I agree with you.
Again, is not the
passionate element wholly set on ruling and conquering and
Suppose we call it the contentious
or ambitious–would the term be suitable?
(Editor: Being famous, respected by the world, competitive
instead of cooperative in learning the truth, your reputation,
honor, societal value, social status, social media
popularity, how the main stream media sees your lifestyle, do my aunts, uncles, cousins love me or
hate me? It's all so irrelevant, not important, but we worry
about it, foolishly, unwisely.
It includes wanting
to fight people physically or mentally to dominate
or conquer them which includes boxing matches and
MMA bouts, having to be right all the time and the anger that comes
when people do not agree with us.)
On the other hand, every one sees that
the principle of knowledge is wholly directed to the
truth, and cares less than either of the others for gain or
(Editor: This principle of
knowledge, that childlike openess to learning is our True
Self, the Real You, not the ego willful, contentious, angry
spirit that the archons gave us or the bodily somatic desire
of the material body which is desire-appetite-money seeking.
What part of the tripartate are you acting from? Is it only
from the lower two levels or can you let the highest aspect
within you guide the lower aspects of your being?
’Lover of wisdom,’ ’lover of knowledge,’ are titles
which we may fitly apply to that part of the soul?
(Editor: A lover of
wisdom is a philosopher; philo means love and soph
means wisdom thus we get Lovewisdom. Wisdom is Higher Knowledge,
Divine Truth, Intuition, Your Conscience, Life Experience.)
