Philosophy Wire: Ancient Greek. (Learn) Remember them!

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-06-27]:

The human brain can be more activated with the use of ancient Greek language. This lead to a more extensive use of abstract concepts and thus to a greater need to express via theater. [123, 10]
Dyslexic children can be cured by learning ancient Greek. [4]

Learn ancient Greek.

Learn why the future tense was created.  (a future tense of the "I want" and not on the "it will happen") [5]
Learn about the time when words had the meaning the writer gave.
A meaning now long gone. [6]
Learn what prayer is hidden in the GREEK alphabet you use. [7]
Listen to the most ancient song recorded. [8]
Go back in order to go forward...
It will not be hard.
You are already there.
The past has never passed.
You just have to acknowledge it.

Ἀτρεΐδη, σοὶ γάρ τε μάλιστά γε λαὸς Ἀχαιῶν
πείσονται μύθοισι, γόοιο μὲν ἔστι καὶ ἆσαι,
νῦν δ᾽ ἀπὸ πυρκαϊῆς σκέδασον καὶ δεῖπνον ἄνωχθι
ὅπλεσθαι· τάδε δ᾽ ἀμφὶ πονησόμεθ᾽ οἷσι μάλιστα
κήδεός ἐστι νέκυς· παρὰ δ᾽ οἵ τ᾽ ἀγοὶ ἄμμι μενόντων. [9]
