I completely agree with your postulations and assessment. Do you think there is a way to bleed these lessons into the everyday things people are interested in? Like, if I may be so bold, could you teach Socrates and Pythagoras work through tik-tok or a Netflix Series? Is this the way to bring about the lost wisdom? Or would this trivialize it?
Perhaps there is a unique intersection between putting effort to learn something difficult and learning something difficult by accident.
