So what are ‘The Lost Philosopher’s Stones’?
Here is the back story for your Summer Adventure…
‘The Legendary President, Abraham Lincoln, spoke of several books that influenced him through his childhood and life, one of which was the renowned work known as ‘Aesop’s Fables’. This book is actually a famous collection of short stories, each composed to convey an ethical teaching in a modest way. The simple but engaging structure of these stories have made them timeless, and are as relevant now as they were when they were originally composed around 2500 years ago.
Given their wide appeal as constructive tools for teaching and conveying moral behavior for centuries, it is not difficult to understand why Abraham Lincoln admired this work, and possibly drew inspiration from it. As he, himself, was known to prefer to use a story to convey his thoughts and inspire those around him – just as Aesop did.
Aesop, the writer credited with writing these stories, was a teacher from ancient Greece, a culture who not only prized the concept of morality, they also could be described as the first real tutors of ethical virtues. The famous Greek philosopher Plato was the first to try and define what virtue was and argued that there was four, namely – Wisdom, Courage, Moderation, and Justice. These virtues, and the classical study of them, became the foundation stones of such inspiring intellectual legacies as those of Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, James Madison, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, giving little doubt as to why Lincoln also embraced the same values collectively.
This is the basis of ‘The Lost Philosopher’s Stones’. That these theoretical cornerstones of ethical behavior actually became real rocks, and that they were once the property of different famous people and eventually came into the possession of Abraham Lincoln himself, just as the book of Aesop did. So a separate stone now exists for each virtue; Wisdom, Courage, Moderation, and Justice. Then, fearing that his life could be in danger, Lincoln hid each stone at a different location in the hope that a worthy person could find them. The locations he chose were relevant to each famous person he believed once owned a specific stone and composed a Treasure Scroll for each.
These are the Scrolls creatively presented by Mysterious Writings.
So, each Scroll points to a Stone, you can do one, or all. It is completely up to you. The Scrolls will be released over the period of 30 days, with the first released on June 21st, 2017.
