280. The Cause of the Killings of Aaron Alexis
In his Meno dialogue, Plato would say that Alexis was unhappy and desired evil things and got them. Thus, if Alexis had been happy, he would have learned many more virtuous qualities such as justice during every rebirth.
In the Meno dialogue, Plato says that we are not reborn in entire forgetfulness or nakedness because the soul of man is immortal. As Leibniz says in his Monadology, our perceptions do form a unity. Thus, we recollect when we try hard enough to know our former lives. Plato shows how an uneducated boy was able reach into a former life to reason sensual facts in mathematics.
So, Alexis killed people because he had not been developing any reasoned facts. Since the English language develops mostly sensual facts and does not develop many reasoned facts, the English language in America must be changed and filled with dialectical thoughts. Thus, our minds will always be active and the universe will be continuous..
