In this episode we explore Heraclitus, an ancient Greek who was more Chinese than the Chinese. There are not just parallels between this remarkable man’s essential worldview and ancient Daoism – more than that, he was more fundamentally Daoist in outlook than are many contemporary Daoists today.
We head at last to Ancient Greece, and look at the attempts of Thales to challenge the miasma of his time.
We also discuss how he agreed with (or perhaps even originated the ideas of) Genesis in a way that modern Christians generally don’t.
