PODCAST — More Trivium: An Introduction with Gene Odening : Unplugged Mom

by Laurette Lynn
Unplugged Mom
Dec 14, 2011

Welcome to your intellectual pilgrimage folks.

I’m honored to have had the pleasure of interviewing long time Trivium student, philosopher and advocate, Gene Odening, for a multi-part, exclusive Unplugged Mom Radio presentation on the Trivium.

Here you will find my brief explanation of the series immediately followed by The Introduction to the series.   Please listen to fully appreciate the most important significance in this pursuit of intellectual growth.


“The Trivium Improves thinking because it helps to awaken and connect dormant neurons.”

Studying the trivium brings us ‘knowing’ as opposed to the ‘illusion of knowing’.

*Note: toward the end of this episode you will hear me announce that Part I – Grammar immediately follows.  However due to some personal unforeseen scheduling issues we were unable to mix the Grammar episode in time.   So I invite you to listen and reflect on the information presented in the Introduction and look forward to Grammar coming out very soon!

Tragedy and Hope provides a portal through which individuals can discover, identify, and integrate useful tools, resources, and activities which stimulate and fortify Cognitive Liberty, providing primary sources, research, and educational methods which facilitate consciousness.

Tragedy and Hope’s purpose is to enable individuals to research and form groups of independent thinkers to solve humanity’s most pressing problems, by identifying the etiology (study of the cause-and-effect origins) and thus understanding our way toward the solutions we seek.

Tragedy and Hope’s form and function (free to the public) enables hundreds-of-thousands of people around the world, to experience open-source education without upper-limits, and it is therein where the solutions are discovered- by making the problems truly known and understood at a root-cause level.

Tragedy and Hope creates, produces, and publishes educational content to help adults understand the world they live in and thereby, develop true self-confidence and serenity of mind; our content focuses on history, philosophy, economics, anthropology, science, communications, and every topic which pertains to learning how to survive and thrive in this world.

Tragedy and Hope is funded by those who tune-in to our productions, and the members of the Tragedy and Hope online critical thinking and research community, who subscribe after witnessing the value provided, and voluntarily deciding to contribute in a way to ensure we can continue producing educational media with integrity and consistency. Sacrifice the Tragedy, Preserve the Hope.

In 2009 he assisted Alexey Stakhov with his highly acclaimed book, The Mathematics of Harmony: From Euclid to Contemporary Mathematics and Computer Science. Today he is working on his new book, Divine Proportion: the Mathematical Perfection of the Universe, due out in the Spring of 2012. Scott will be giving a lecture and workshops in New York in May on Nature’s Divine Proportion and the Canon of the Human Body. Then in June he will travel to the Bibiotheca Alexandrina, Egypt where he will present a workshop on The Philosopher Mathematicians of Alexandria: Euclid and Hypatia for the New York Open Center’s “Esoteric Quest for Ancient Alexandria: Greco-Egyptian Birthplace of the Western Mind.” Applying his knowledge of proportional symmetry in physique competition, Scott won 1st place as Mr. Minneapolis, Mr. Twin Cities, Mr. Gainesville, Mr. Northeast Florida, and the prestigious New York open title, Mr. Apollo.
