Leo Strauss (September 20, 1899 – October 18, 1973) was a German-born Jewish-American political philosopher who specialized in classical political philosophy. He spent most of his career as a professor of political science at the University of Chicago, where he taught several generations of students and published fifteen books. Since his death, he has come to be regarded as one of the intellectual fathers of neoconservatism in the United States.
Leo's Numerical Age (NA) at the time of his passing/ascension was 27056 days.
27056 = Leo (356) X 76
78 corresponds to the english word "GO".
So Leo's numerical age was, in effect, GO (76) X Leo (356) - ie. "GO LEO!!"
Liberalism and nihilism
To continue with Wikipedia:
Strauss taught that liberalism in its modern form contained within it an intrinsic tendency towards relativism, which in turn led to two types of nihilism The first was a “brutal” nihilism, expressed in Nazi and Marxist regimes. These ideologies, both descendants of Enlightenment thought, tried to destroy all traditions, history, ethics, and moral standards and replace them by force under which nature and mankind are subjugated and conquered. The second type – the "gentle" nihilism expressed in Western liberal democracies – was a kind of value-free aimlessness and a hedonistic "permissive egalitarianism", which he saw as permeating the fabric of contemporary American society. In the belief that 20th century relativism, scientism, historicism, and nihilism were all implicated in the deterioration of modern society and philosophy, Strauss sought to uncover the philosophical pathways that had led to this situation. The resultant study led him to advocate a tentative return to classical political philosophy as a starting point for understanding our predicament and judging political action.[1
ONE (1) final note: Leo Straus was born on the same day as our third son, Andrew (2001). 9/20 (920) corresponds to God (764) is (91) On (65) = 920 = 23 "I Am" X 40.
18990920 + Leo (356) days = 19000911 which was/is 101 "Perfect Unity" prime days from September 11, 2001.
Two 110+ story twin towers collapsed on 9/11 EXACTLY 111 days from 5/23 which corresponds to WTC (523) - WTC corresponds to "World Trade Center" - and 9/11 was 111 days from the end of the year, 12/31.
89 "Prime of Leo (356)" X Leo (356) days prior to Leo's birth, 18990920, brings us back to 18121221 which was the Leo (356th) Day of the year - ie. also the Winter Solstice.
Finally, 18990920 + 101 "Perfect Unity" X Leo (356) days = 19980301, my mother's 70th birthday. Seven (7) cycles of Leo (356) days from 19980301 brings us to 19941226 which was/is our oldest son, Frederick's 11th birthday. Leo Straus turned 70 in 1969 when I was 11 years old.
