Chris Black Writes

Hello, I’m Chris, 25, from Derbyshire, England. Welcome to my blog! I have a passion for the classical world, world mythology, and philosophy. This eclectic collection of poetry, philosophy, short stories and more is my attempt to find harmony between the modern world and classical tradition.

Understanding the future by deciphering the past...

Everything is connected.

From the first single celled organism to the dawn of man. Our history is no different. To understand it, you have to go back to the very beginning. Every man, every book, every action, sends ripples through time that influence future generations.

From the source of those ripples I hope to shed new light and meaning on the world of today. Ancient Egypt, Babylon, the Roman Empire, the City States of Greece; they all have new stories to tell if we stop and listen. Our modern world so often denigrates the past as something that has been overcome and bettered. Yet the collective wisdom of a thousand generations is just waiting to be rediscovered.
