I refer to myself as an "Aquarian Man."
It is a term I have coined to describe a modern person typically referred to as a Polymath. I think Polymath is too generic—someone who has learned much. "Renaissance man" I think of as an out-dated term or one used to refer to specific types of Polymath or Polyhistor from the European Renaissance of the 14th–17th centuries.
So then, what exactly is an Aquarian Man?
According to the understanding of my research, there is a very specific 80 year period from 1960 to 2040 in which we transition from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. To be more precise you need to make your own conclusion from a body of research.
An Aquarian Man is someone (man being gender neutral) who has learned or is in the process of learning a breadth of knowledge with sufficient depth to be considered an expert on several subjects relevant to the Aquarian epoch.
Bear in mind, this is something vastly different from a jack-of-all-trades. It is is similar to comparing someone who can use a saw and beautifully hang some cabinets in the kitchen to someone who wants more creativity and funtionality in design, builds his own CNC machine and uses it to design and build the cabinets from reclaimed barnwood, inlays into them collected petrified wood, then remodels the kitchen around the new cabinets.
A good sampling of topics amongst these including (in no particular order):
- Technology (computing and electronics)
- Astronomy and planetary science
- Archaeology and History
- Art (visual, musical and performing)
- Business, Economics and Finance
- Political Science
- Mathematics and Geometry
- Physics, magnetics and gravity
- Medicine and Health
- Physical Fitness and Sport
- Botany and Agriculture
- Animal Husbandry
Armed with a deep understanding of most of these topics and how they relate to each other puts you well on your way to having the tools you need to make wise conclusions.
Aquarian Men make their own conclusions after evaluating the body of knowledge rather than just taking someone else's conclusion and adopting it as their own.
