The step of Kouros symbolizes a historical period of the Hellenic civilization, designating the decisive step of this civilization towards its geographical, social, cultural and noospheric expansion. This cultural explosion moves towards the New, it is the moment at which the Hellenic civilization realizes its own Plus Ultra. During this cosmogenic explosion certain, idiosyncratic in nature, memeplexes emerge. These shall propagate their solitonic existance through Time and within History. These memeplexes include the birth of Physical Philosophy, of Mathematics and of Astronomy. The generator of these accomplishments is the “hellenopoietic space”. The hellenopoietic space is composed by the deep synergy between the geosphere, the biosphere and the noopshere of the Hellenic civilization. The achievements born within the presence of the hellenopoietic space belong nowadays to our Common Global Heritage. The decisive step made by the standing form of Kouros symbolizes the first step of the Hellenic civilization, a step actualized within the fertile uterus of the “hellenopoietic” space.
