  1. socrates taught plato who taught aristotle who taught alexander (the person who established the hellenstic culture).
    therefore, all of their ideas were assimilated and adapted to form well thought out theorys and ideas. These ideas were then passed on to alexander who put them all together to form theorys for the hellenistic culture. The hellenistic culture mixed ideas from his teachers and their teachers as well as epytian, persian, and indian ideas.
    Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle passed on the theorys while adding to it so the hellenistic culture combined ideas from all of them.

  2. Seriously, not much.
    Socrates was put to death and Aristotle was banished. The mainstream society thought of their ideas as mostly heretical and false, thus, these thinkers played at best a marginal role. If you want to know how the contemporary Greeks thought of these people, read “The Clouds” by Aristophanes. He openly mocks Socrates and the Socratics.
    Their ideas were kept alive over the years by a handful of disciples, but they didn’t percolate beyond the confines of the “thinking class.”
    Their ideas had a profound influence on the later development of Western Civilization; but as is so often the case with prophets, their work was largely disregarded by the people to whom it was initially given.

Clairvoyant Meditation for Psychic Intuition

To develop your clairvoyance, you must be able to attain a higher level of consciousness. You need to work on your spirituality and this can be done in several ways. The most common way is through tapping the power of your third eye. Another effective way is through constant meditation.

Third Eye Meditation

Often lots of people's third eye are not open because they are blocked. The third eye is a sixth chakra but connected to the first, second and third chakra's and blockages in this lower chakra's will also cause a blockage in the sixth. Oftentimes, the cause of blockages are fear and disbelief, though Tibetans and Indian yogis believe third eye is blocked for past life karma . Some people refuse to believe that they are blessed with a sixth sense while others are anxious of the images they might see once they have opened theirs.

Meditation and Labyrinths

Some people confuse labyrinths with mazes, but it's not a maze. It is more of a meditation that is in walking form. Let me explain. The labyrinth has a pathway that you walk in order to reach the center but it goes round and round, back and forth, until you reach the center. The key is to take slow steps and just walk towards the center; taking your time and following your breath.
