The burned friar

A quote by Giordano Bruno,

“Colui che vede in se stesso tutte le cose è al tempo stesso tutte le cose.”

Giordano Bruno was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet and astronomer. In 1600, he was burned at the stake because the Roman Inquisition founded him guilty of heresy.

What Bruno stated in the above-cited quote is the person who is able to perceive in himself everything is at the same time everything, too.

Indeed, it is true that many times people do not see themselves as an “ensemble” of elements and because of that they sometimes do not have a clearer, wider and probably more adequate and less judgmental
view of reality.
