Is there really no Godness of Mercy or Compassion in the extensive antique
No! It is not so! The classical antiquity was very cruel. There were subjects
of Fate, Destiny, but not Virtues. It is proved, that Spartans threw from the
rock the babies who were born defective or with deviations. The same tragic
end was for the feeble old men. There were even Goddesses of rage - Irinei,
Hecate... there was, however, Asklepy, God of Healing transporting souls of
the dead through the river of Time...
the Compassion and Mercy - were brought to the world by Christianity. But it
is impossible to say that it has won within 2000 years...

It is known that "initial thought" for the artist is his intuition.
And how is that in science? There is an opinion that one succeeds in science
who looks at the world by the "eyes of the artist".
There is knowledge in science. Knowledge excites curiosity – what is there

Not absolutely. It is known that Newton opened the Law of universal
gravitation, at the moment when an apple fell on his head. And Archimedes -
when he had nearly drown. The laws had already existed, objectively exist.
And they simply opened them. No doubt, that if they hadn’t opened them,
others would make that. There are cases of simultaneous discoveries in
science by different people in the different countries.
and what is in the sphere of art… If there were no Leo Tolstoy there would be
no "War and Peace".
