Knowledge is the means to rid ourselves of darkness, of ignorance.
The search for truth, the understanding of true reality, has been one of the problems of human cognition since ancient times.
These perceptions shape the worldview of every person, every nation. “Learn wisdom and wisdom forever,

Our Ancestors remind us of the importance of “distinguishing the true from the false” by Matean, Kurm Mihr Haykazoun.
According to Plato, the role of an enlightened person, a philosopher, a lover of reason, is to return to society and educate – to enlighten others.

“We have one vow: always to the Light,
