THE TRIPARTATE HUMAN:
MIND BODY SPIRIT




It is widely known that Plato,

pupil of and close friend to Socrates,

accepted that Human Beings have a

" Tripartite Soul " where the individual

Human Psyche is noticeably composed

of three aspects -



1. Wisdom-Rationality,


2. Spirited-Will and


3. Appetite-Desire.

 

THE TRIPARTITE SOUL

MIND/BODY/SPIRIT                          

1. MIND OR SPIRITED-WILL I.E. THE EGO OR LOWER SELF

2. BODY OR DESIRE 

3. SPIRIT OR WISDOM-RATIONALITY, LOVE OF DIVINE TRUTH OR WISDOM = LOVEWISDOM

 

 
3. Appetite-Desire

the following is Socrates speaking in Plato's Republic Book 9, my comments are in parentheses:


We called it appetitive, on account of the violence of the appetites of hunger, thirst, and sex, and all their accompaniments

(i.e. MATERIAL PLEASURES like: cars, mansions, lands, estates, physical pleasures like luxury beds, perfumes, high fashion clothing, luxury furniture and appliances, latest cell phone/computer, magazines, books, sexual pleasure.

CAN WE COMBINE FOOD THIRST SEX COMFORTS WITH WISDOM-RATIONALITY? LIKE EATING A LIVING LACTO-VEGETARIAN DIET, SEXUAL CONSERVATION OR KAREZZA)

and we called it peculiarly money-loving, because money is the chief agent in the gratification of such appetites.
Yes, we were right.
Then if we were to assert that the pleasure and the affection of this third part have gain

(GAINING MONEY, MAKING MONEY, BEING RICH)

for their object, would not this be the best summary of the facts upon which we should be likely to settle by force of argument, as a means of conveying a clear idea to our own minds, whenever we spoke of this part of the soul? And shall we not be right in calling it money-loving and gain-loving?
I confess I think so, he replied.



(2. Spirited-Will)
Again, do we not maintain that the spirited part is wholly bent on winning power and victory and celebrity?

(i.e. BEING FAMOUS, RESPECTED BY THE WORLD,                DRAMA OF REPUTATION, HONOR, SOCIETAL VALUE, SOCIAL STANDING, SOCIAL MEDIA POPULARITY, SCANDAL, DO MY AUNTS/COUSINS LOVE ME OR HATE ME? IT'S ALL SO IRRELEVANT, NOT IMPORTANT, BUT WE WORRY ABOUT IT, ALL THE TIME. I WORK TO LET IT GO.

ALSO DOES CBS NEWS/MAINSTREAM MEDIA ACCEPT LOVEWISDOM OR THE PARADISIAN-VITALOGICAL SCIENCE MOVEMENT ? NO, THEY DO NOT. AND SO WORK TO LET IT GO, NOT WORRY ABOUT THINGS NOT WORTH WORRYING ABOUT.

THE PSYCHIC OR SPIRITED-WILL IS THE ARCHON EGO MIND, THAT IS NOT OUR TRUE SELF OR HIGHER SELF COMPOSED OF LOWER ON EARTH SELF AND HIGHER SELF IN HEAVEN AND YOUR PARTNER CONSCIENCE.

WE HAVE NO POWER OVER OTHER PEOPLE, NOT EVEN FEMALE PARTNERS I.E. THE MACHO DOMINANCE, THEY CAN AND WILL LEAVE FREELY, ILLUSION OF MALE DOMINANCE ALTHOUGH THEY LIKE TO BE LEAD IN SOME THINGS AND MEN ARE LEAD BY WOMEN TOO, LIKE ADAM WHEN HE WAS GUIDED BY HIS CONSCIENCE OR THE FEMALE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.)

Certainly we do.
Then would the title of strife-loving and honour-loving be appropriate to it?
Yes, most appropriate?



(1. Wisdom-Rationality)
Well, but with regard to the part by which we learn, it is obvious to everyone that its entire and constant aim is to know how the truth stands, and that this of all the elements of our nature feels the least concern for wealth (number 3) and reputation (number 2).
Yes, quite the least.

(THIS IS YOUR TRUE SELF, THE REAL YOU, NOT THE EGO WILLED-SPIRIT OF THE ARCHONS OR THE BODY SOMATIC DESIRE OF THE MATERIAL BODY WHICH IS DESIRE-APPETITE-MAMMON SEEKING. WHAT REALM OF THE TRIPARTATE ARE YOU ACTING FROM? IS IT SOLELY FROM THE LOWER TWO 2. AND 3. OR CAN YOU MIX THE FIRST 1. OR WISDOM WITH THE OTHER ACTIONS OF FOOD-MONEY-SEX AND FAME-RESPECT-HONOR.)

Then shall we not do well to call it knowledge-loving and wisdom-loving?

(Wisdom Loving or Love of Wisdom/Lovewisdom. Wisdom is Higher Knowledge, Divine Truth, not merely intellectual, scientific, materially and temporally quantifiable knowledge.
