“Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.”
– Proverbs 16:27
“We must use the blazonry of the heavens as patterns to aid in the study of those realities, just as one would do who chanced upon diagrams drawn with special care and elaboration by Daedalus or some other craftsman or painter. For anyone acquainted with geometry who saw such designs would admit the beauty of the workmanship, but would think it absurd to examine them seriously in the expectation of finding in them the absolute truth.”
– Plato, Plato in Twelve Volumes, Vols. 5 & 6, 529d-e
Daedalus was an inventive chap. He was recognized as a groundbreaking artist, sculptor, creator, engineer and architect. He made tools, birthed disciplines and professions, and had kids who play big in the story. An all around creative, credited with many inventions and disciplines. One might imagine his Workshop as a place of wonder. Full of tools, plans, notes and schemes for the inventions he created or had yet to devise.
