Introduction

The Holy Spirit has been recorded as arriving on the day of the Pentecost Festival, fifty days after the crucifixion of the Representative of the Creator of the Universe (RoCoU), a.k.a. Jesus. [i] However, Socrates was reported to be the wisest man on the planet in his time.

Socrates and the Source of his Wisdom

According to Plato’s Apology, Socrates’ life as the ‘gadfly’ of Athens began when his friend Chaerephon asked the oracle at Delphi if anyone were wiser than Socrates; the Oracle responded that no-one was wiser. Socrates believed the Oracle’s response was a paradox, because he believed he possessed no wisdom whatsoever. Socrates concluded: While each man thought he knew a great deal and was wise, in fact they knew very little and were not wise at all. Socrates realized the Oracle was correct; while so-called wise men thought themselves wise and yet were not, he himself knew he was not wise at all, which, paradoxically, made him the wiser one since he was the only person aware of his own ignorance.”[ii]

Socrates and His Guiding Spirit

 “Perhaps the most interesting facet of this is Socrates’ reliance on what the Greeks called his ‘daimōnic sign,’ an averting (ἀποτρεπτικός apotreptikos) inner voice Socrates heard only when he was about to make a mistake. It was this sign that prevented Socrates from entering into politics. In the Phaedrus, we are told Socrates considered this to be a form of ‘divine madness,’ the sort of insanity that is a gift from the gods and gives us poetry, mysticism, love, and even philosophy itself. Alternately, the sign is often taken to be what we would call ‘intuition;’ however, Socrates’ characterization of the phenomenon as daimōnic may suggest that its origin is divine, mysterious, and independent of his own thoughts.” [iii]

Conclusion

Therefore the Holy Spirit preceded the coming of RoCoU, a.k.a. Jesus, a.k.a. the Savior, a.k.a. the Counselor.  The events that occurred on planet Earth before and after the arrival of RoCoU, a.k.a. Jesus, would indicate that very few, if any, other than Socrates allowed this Spirit to guide them through life on Earth.
