Contemporary physicists on the whole don't know a thing about Greek  
philosophy, let alone ancient troubadours and storytellers steeped in  
myth, ignorance, and superstition.  And I am not aware of any  
developments in modern physics that involve anyone tracing back to  
the ancients for guidance.    (02)
