The Name of Man

A parable was presented 2000 years ago about a traveler who fell among thieves, who was robbed and was left half dead by the wayside. The parable doesn't identify who the thieves were, or what they took. This appears unimportant in comparison to the reaction of certain segments of society to the scene that has been established. The parable presents three examples.

The first person on the scene is one of the priesthood. He took note of the injured man, but passed by on the other side, pretending he hadn't seen a thing. The second person on the scene was one of the noble elite. He, too, passed by on the other side. The third person on the scene was a man of low esteem, a Samaritan of all people. We are told that he bound up the man's wounds, cleansed them with oil and wine, and then put the man on his own beast and brought him to an inn where he took care of him. We are also told that when he departed, he provided for the man's full recovery.

If this article appears unrelated to the subject of discovering infinity in modern economics, then this parable is not understood. And if the parable is not understood, the nature of humanity is not understood. Then, all our searching through the annals of history is for nothing, because then, infinity is not understood which reflects itself in the infinite potential of man in which we find the real nature of our being.
