Aristotle was a Greek philosopher who supposedly lived from 384 bc until 322 bc, idealized by the Medici's (Marsilio Ficino) to revive the Hermetic tradition. He supposedly was a student of Plato. The theory of forms (the material world as imperfect variations on idea's that exist in a perfect, absolut realm) and concept of a Demiurge existed already in gnosticism of fi Valentinus and influenced Christian authors like Augustine of Hippo, Dominicans Thomas Aquinas, Albertus Magnus and Meister Eckhart. In myths Aristotle was said to have founded a lyceum (lyceus: wolf, wolves were associated with the god Apollo and descendants of Fabius Maximus who used the wolf in sheep's clothing tactic) where he taught Alexander the Great (whose mother was a member of a Dionysian cult).

The works attributed to him are Categories, On Interpretation, Prior Analytics, Physics, On the Heavens, De Anima, On Memory, On Sleep, On Dreams and Nicomachean Ethics. Some works are attributed to invented author Theophrastus. The works make a distinction between a vegetative, animal and rational soul.

History of the Aritsotle myth

The theory of forms survived in Persia and its islamic culture. In kabbalism the 4 kabbalistic worlds correspond to the 4 elements and 4 letters of YHVH.

Plotinus, who lived in Egypt, wrote The Enneads. His student Porphyry and his student Iamblichus wrote a fictional biography of Pythagoras.

Thomas Aquinas of the Dominican Order merged the philosophy of Aristotle with Christianity. Dominican Willem van Moerbeke translated Politics and De Anima.

The Catholic Church had waged war against the gnostic Cathars, who were influenced by the jewish kabbalists of South France, like Isaac the Blind.

The writings attributed to Aristotle were translated into Latin by Henry Aristippus, who also translated Diogenes Laertius and Plato's Phaedo and Meno.

In 1433 Cosimo de Medici ordered Ambrogio Traversari to translate the work of unreliable author Diogenes Laertius into Latin. In Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers he claims Aristotle wrote 400 books.

In 1450 the printing revolution started in Germany with the press of Johannes Gutenberg printing the Gutenberg bible. In 1453 the Ottomans conquered Constantinople (Byzantium) of the Palaiologos dynasty (double headed eagle emblem). John Argyropoulos translated Greek texts into Latin and moved to Italy where he taught German kabbalist Johann Reuchlin, Leonardo da Vinci, Pietro and Lorenzo Medici.

In 1462 Cosimo de Medici (cult of Mercury) created an academy in Florence and ordered Marsilio Ficino to write texts in Latin. Ficino was the teacher of Lorenzo de Medici, Angelo Poliziano, Francesco Cattani da Diacetto and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (follower of Dominican Giacomo Savonarola). In 1471 he published Corpus Hermeticum, 17 Greek texts also written as dialogues, which influenced Giordano Bruno and Robert Fludd.

In 1495 Venetian printer Aldus Manutius printed his first editions of Aristotle's works.

In 1509 Rafael painted the School of Athens in the Vatican Palace of the Catholic Church with Plato (based on homosexual Leonardo da Vinci, who taught Rafael drawing in perspective), carrying a copy of Timaeus and Aristotle making the Hermetic sign As Above So Below. It also includes Giovanni Bazzi (nicknamed 'the sodomite'), Zoroaster, Ptolemy, Pythagoras, Archimedes, Euclid (holding a square, based on Bramante), Heraclitus (based on Michelangelo) and the skeptics Arcesilaus, Carneades, Pythodorus,.. It also depicts statues of Apollo and Athena.

Aristotle holds a copy of Nicomachean Ethics. The painting was commissioned by pope Julius II (Giuliano della Rovere), who also ordered the fresco's of Michelangelo at the Sistine Chapel. Julius II helped creating the Vatican Museum and rebuilding St Peter's in Rome (financed by the scam of selling indulgences) and also restoring the power of the Medici's in Florence during the Italian Wars.

In 1525 the Medici's (pope Clement VII) built the Laurentian library at the Basilico de San Lorenzo in Florence with manuscripts of Diogenes Laertius, used as evidence of existence of Plato and his school.

Friedrich August Wolf, an agent of mason Frederick the Great and Wilhelm von Humboldt (APS, Enlightenment trend), created modern philology. His pupil Immanuel Bekker made an inventory of the works of Aristotle.

Aristotle was discussed in Bertrand Russell's History of Western Philosophy. His teacher Alfred North Whitehead called western philosophy a footnote to Plato.

Aristotle Onassis, who married jesuit Jackie Kennedy at island Skorpios, was named after him.

Anthony Hopkins played Aristotle in Alexander (2004) of Oliver Stone.
