Polymath and Polymathy

A polymath is a universal man who uses extensive knowledge of various subjects to solve practical problems. Polymathy embodies the true meaning of a university and universal education.

The universal man is a polymath inserted on concentric circles (as portrayed by the Universal Man of St. Hildegard of Bingen) because he is the microcosm of the Cosmos. The relationship between the universal man and the cosmos is understood from the perspective of Macrocosm and Microcosm in which the polymath is the microcosm of the universal macrocosm.

In Kabbalah, the universal man is called the Ish-Man.

Although man was created on the sixth day of creation, the universal man is the man of the seventh day - the seventh man.

The first six days of creation are the days of punishment (judgement). Each day is a man and the six days are six men.

Humanity in the past six thousand years constitute the six men God summoned to punish the earth.

'I heard God shout, "Come here, you men who are going to punish the city. Bring your weapons with you."' (Ezekiel 9:1) "GNT"

There were never aliens coming from outer space to punish humans on earth. Humans were the ones punishing themselves.

"At once six men came from the outer north gate of the Temple, each one carrying a weapon. With them was a man dressed in linen clothes, carrying something to write with." (Ezekiel 9:2) "GNT"

Note that the six men were armed with weapons and the seventh man was armed with writing materials. This means that the six men came to destroy and the seventh man came to educate.
The city is the whole earth, the six men represent the chaotic world, and the seventh man represents the harmonious world. While the six men were busy destroying the world, the seventh man was writing down everything. The six men were demolition men and the seventh man was an engineering student.

While the six men were demolishing the car, the seventh man was busy learning how to join the parts together to form a new car. The old car destroyed by the six men was the old Jerusalem (the old world) and the new car is the new Jerusalem (the new world).

The old world was a world of confusion built around religion. People were divided into Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Taoists, Atheists, etc.

In the old world, people were specialised in specific religion or subject. Muslim clerics were ignorant of Christianity and Christian clerics were ignorant of Islam because there was a wall between Islam and Christianity.

Religion is built around information documented as books. Christianity is built around the Bible, Islam is built around the Quran, and Judaism is built around the Torah.

Consequently, the wall between religions and people is a fire wall between information. The world created by the fire wall is chaos.

A polymath is someone that can reconcile information in different religions and subject into one harmonious subject called polymathy.

Knowledge of physics, chemistry, astronomy, mathematics, poetry, medicine, computer science, electronics, islam, hinduism, taoism, philosophy, Christianity, Judaism, geometry, geography, cosmology, etc, are united to form polymathy.

A divided world is a multiverse. A true universe is attained when the universes in the multiverse are united to form the Cosmos, and this can only be achieved through the type of universal education embodied by polymathy.

Newunivars is polymathy dedicated to conflict resolution, global peace and stability.
