Take Note of these Quotes from Giordano Bruno

“Time is the father of truth, it’s mother is our mind.”

“The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it.”

“Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of people.”

“All things are in the universe, and the universe is in all things: we in it, and it in us; in this way everything concurs in a perfect unity.”

“The universe is one, infinite, immobile.”

-Giordano Bruno

BACKGROUND:

(1548 – February 17, 1600) Giordano Bruno was an Italian philosopher, priest, cosmologist, and occultist. He is known for his system of mnemonics based on organized knowledge, his ideas on extrasolar planets and extraterrestrial life, and his support of Nicolaus Copernicus‘s heliocentric model of the solar system. Like other early thinkers seeking a more reasonable view of the universe, Bruno adopted a model of the world comprising some aspects that have been incorporated into the modern scientific model and others, such as his animistic cosmology and disdain for mathematics, which are inconsistent with the modern scientific model.

Due to his highly unorthodox and strongly-held views, Bruno left the Dominican priesthood and Italy in search of a stable academic position in other European countries. Aside from seven productive years in France, however, he was unsuccessful in finding an academic institution willing to permit him to teach his ideas. Returning to Italy he continued to promote unorthodox views in the face of the then-strong Roman Inquisition, which jailed him for six years, convicted him of heresy, and burned him at the stake, hanging upside-down, gagged, and naked on February 17, 1600.

The Roman Inquisition killed Bruno essentially because his ideas were deemed to be too potentially disruptive of the social order and also because he was too successful in promulgating them. Such ruthless actions were noticeably ineffective in stemming the rising tide of a new worldview whose time had apparently come.
