    Selam SGJ,

    This Audio program you are presenting them in series, are very educative to the general public. I hope someone who are good story tellers like yourself join you to share the burden. Besides, I am also lost on the meaning of “ዓርገን “. Is it an adopted word?

    This is another enlightening audio talk. I think the series are going to add up to become valuable source of learning. It’s exciting when politics are presented with touch of art and socio-cultural flavors. I enjoyed listening to the video though I got interrupted by my ignorance of what ዓርገን means. Would anyone throw me a line and teach me, please.

      Ahlan Ismail, and Ammanuel,
      This is the problem with presenting unscripted impromptu talks… I also see that Amanuel is asking the same question.

      Honestly, I cannot give you an authoritative meaning or translation of the word ARGEN but it always came with a prefix: ABI-ARGEN (I never heard SMALL AREGEN). When I was growing up it was a regular scolding by our mothers. I always understood it to mean “Arrested development” because it was used to scold someone who is old enough but acts like children below his age. It was commonly used for boys but sometimes it was also used on girls… but girls rarely did something that would invoke the Abai -Argen scolding. It was also used to belittle men who acted like adolescents, like drinking, flirting and behaving foolishly.

      Thank you both

        Thank you SGL,

        I remember, the word from one poem of Tesfamariam W/Geyorgis written in 2010..

        “ዓበይቲ ዓርገን ብዓል ኣደይ ርብቃ:
        ደቀን እናተሓርዱ ዝኮሓላ ዝወርቓ :
        ኣብ እርጋነን ሓልና ዘውደቓ :-
        ንኡኩያት ቶኩልን መሲሉዎን ዝጸድቓ ::”

        So, also we also use it for women.

        KS,

  • Selamat Ayya Saleh,

    Excellent topical address as always. With regards to knowledge increasing with a geometrical progression, allow me to add just a little (my preference would be some sort of visual animation… another time..)

    The golden age is one of four eras of humanities consciousness. Many human cultures including the Greeks divide the processions of the equinox into four; The Iron, Bronze, Silver and Golden Ages. The Golden age is when human consciousness and knowledge is at its highest if not at its complete fulfillment. And we are fast approaching the golden age of humanity as we are on the cusp of ushering in the Aquarius constellation in the procession of the equinox which is a 360 degrees rotation that takes 25,920 years. In an average human age, 72yrs, the procession of the equinox would have moved 1 degree. If the sky is divided into 12 constellations, one constellation is replaced in the next procession every 2160 years. So if the three wise Magi of Persia is now conjured in your mind, yes the new star born, a new king for a new constellation is along those thoughts, but I digress…
    Every 2160 years or every 30 degrees of rotation we enter an age. I believe we are currently in the Silver Age–30 degrees of silver and will be entering the Golden Age in Aquarius. But it takes ሰላሳ ወለዶ ሰብዓን ክልተን ዓመት ዝቆዘሩ። ካብ ፓይሲስ ን ኣክዋሪያስ። ዓሳ ወይ ፓይሲስ ምልክት መሲሒን ምስ ትዕዘብ፡ ኢቲ ክርስቶስ ዝተወልደሉ ዘመን ፈለማ ፓይሲስ ኮንስትላሽን ስለ ዝኾነ ኢዩ።

      Thanks, Kokeb,

      If I am not overtaken by Kechewhew, I intend to make this like a Turkish soap opera series 🙂

  • Selam SGJ,
    Another excellent talk laced with rich cultural references. What resonates with me particularly is your call for us to abandon self-infantilization and take ourselves seriously.

    cheers

    • Saleh Johar

      Hi Samuel,
      Indeed. Self-Infantilization is my main criticism of our society particularly the young. I believe we need to address it properly if we are to move forward at the required pace.

      Thank you
