The night before last, we went to the best concert of our lives so far.  The glorious Russian soprano, Anna Netrebko - deservedly the toast of Europe’s classical world - sang us some ravishing opera highlights. She was accompanied by her husband, tenor Yusif Eyvazov, the star baritone Elchin Avazov and the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra. What a night!  What a programme!

The Spiritual Experience

By Olivia Pierson http://www.oliviapierson.org/b...

When Aristotle, the ancient Athenian philosopher, devised his systems of logic and metaphysics (the study of the nature of reality), he taught that all entities, be they animal, vegetable or mineral, had a distinct identity or nature (essence) and could only ever be or act according to that nature. This became the famous Law of Identity: a thing is itself, formulaically symbolised as ‘A is A’.
