Plato is often quoted (or misquoted) on websites as putting forward the concept of a physical Central Sun. I would like to reiterate his position as I described it in my article The Eye of the Sun-Runner (http://www.solarancestor.com/the-eye-of-the-sunrunner.html ): He tabulates the ‘Simile of the Sun,’ demonstrating that in the Visible World the Sun is the source of growth and light, granting us the faculty of sight and visibility to objects of sense, while in the Intelligible World the Sun-behind-the-sun is the source of reality and truth, granting us the faculty of knowledge and intelligibility to objects of the mind and thought. Ancient Egyptians and Greeks believed the sun we see is just the physical form of a higher ‘Intelligible or Spiritual Sun.’ Philo of Alexandria called it: “The Sun of the sun, the Intelligible object behind the object comprehensible by sense, and from invisible fountains he supplies the visible beams which our eyes behold."
For spiritual seekers and those in the process of shifting to higher consciousness, it is important to focus on the invisible, ‘Intelligible’ Central Sun. Having said that I, for one, would be delighted to learn that there is a greater physical parent to our own Father Sun.
