Close-ups of the Civilization painting.

What does it mean to be a Genius?

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In today’s society full of noisy distractions, how does one find their true genius? What prevents a person from embracing the wisdom of ancient great civilizations?
In this painting “Civilizations” the artist Eriberto Oriol seems to be embracing and celebrating the symbols of ancient civilizations that have influenced him and his art.
