Just a Quick Point About the OCMS Song.

When I talk about "hellenisms" in the lyrics, I am not suggesting that the authors are deliberately referencing Plato (I am not excluding it, but I am not suggesting it). Rather, I am saying that their language reveals an opennesss to experience that is characteristic of philosophy as such. It was Plato who first differentiated the open soul as the goal of philosophic life and condition of psychically healthy polity.
