The Plato Code extends The Socrates Code, which is the first book in a series of three, in which Peter Hubral dismantles today's understanding of the Pythagorean/Platonic philosophía, the mother of modern philosophy. He shows that its many Greek masters taught how to obtain extrasensory natural knowledge, which appears "out of itself" on what Lao Tzu calls in the Daodejing the Great Path (Da Dao) and Parmenides calls in his Poem on Nature the Path (Way) to Truth.
This step-wise path from the known into the unknown provides prenatal knowledge based on the unconditioned cognition principle: Consciousness can be significantly expanded by rigorous meditative dedication to Nothingness (Nonbeing). The composite lion-bull motive on the front cover is an ancient Iranian allegory for this principle. The philosophía can, like the Dao-teaching of Fangfu, only be understood with it.
This principle got lost to the West after the unwritten philosophía disappeared once and for ever in the Byzantine Empire. The consequence is that the written philosophía is ever since interpreted with the only cognition principle known today to the West: Being (familiar world) defines the consciousness. Its application to the written philosophía distorted the Greek wisdom and its ancient sources in the Middle East completely.
It created the castle in the air that the author already largely destructs in The Socrates Code. He now shows in The Plato Code that the Western Culture has ironically mistook it to be the stronghold of western philosophy, science, art, literature and religion. He convincingly concludes that nothing could be more wrong in the history of the western culture and science than this.

About the Author
Dr Peter Hubral is a retired full professor of Applied Geophysics with many scientific publications and a life-long interest in Greek and Eastern philosophy. He published four books in Lotus Press and one in Longtai Verlag, in which he systematically destructs in a really scandalizing and most disturbing way all that is known about the Greek Philosophers. He argues convincingly that they taught their students the same profound wisdom as his teacher, Dao-Grandmaster Fangfu, who considers himself in an uninterrupted genealogy of Dao-masters that includes Laozi (Lao Tzu).
