Taurus Thinkers – Stripes and Parallels + Daniel Buren

May 19 was a birthday of Malcom X and Ho Chi Minh and the fact of their birthday did not seem to capture the interest at blogsphere this year. Interesting to know that two of revolutinary father figures shared a birthday. There are a few more examples of birthday twins.

A)
Soren Kierkegaard
5/5 1813
Karl Marx
5/5 1818

B)
70 Jules Massenet
5/12/1842 – 8/13/1912
French composer; best remembered for his operas

79 Gabriel Faure
5/12/1845 – 11/4/1924
French composer

C)
69 Albert Finney
5/9/1936
69 Glenda Jackson
5/9/1936

Or take a look at this list,
Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, Wittgenstein, Godel, Herbert Spencer, Poincare, Machiavelli, Kant, Thomas Huxley, Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, David Hume, Ortega Y Gasset, Karl Barth, Bertrand Russell,Rudolph Carnap, Fichte, John Stewart Mill – and if you include the creative minds – Shakespeare and Orson Wells.

They were all Taurus – no bullshit.
Thinkers and revolutionaries are stubborn, persistent, retentive, steadfast, sedantary, habitual, earthy and practical. There are non-materialistic Taurus who manage to change the world, not all
Taurus are greedy as the list above indicate.

It turns out you don’t have to be Taurus to be a good bullshit artist,
here is Daniel Buren.
