The clearest Greek ideas on the chakras come from Plato, who writes about them in his dialogue Timaeus.  Basically, Plato considered the chakras to be subtle organs that the soul, or psyche uses to relate to the gross physical body.  
     According to Plato's philosophy, the soul has three basic parts, or levels of expression:
     Nous or Logos - This is the highest part or level of soul expression, which Plato called the psyche, or immortal soul.  Its attributes are reason, wisdom and spiritual insight.  It finds expression through the Crownand Brow centers.
     Thymos - This is the middle level of soul expression, or what Plato called the mortal soul.  Its basic attributes are passion, fight and drive.  It finds expression through the middle three chakras:  the Throat, Heartand Gastric centers.
     Epithymia - This is the level of desire and instinct, and is the lowest level of soul expression.  It is also concerned with basic survival needs and appetites, and finds expression through the two lowest chakras:  theGenerative and Root centers.  
     Obvious parallels can be drawn between Plato's three levels of soul expression and thethree Gunas of yogic philosophy, as well as the ego, id and superego of Freudian psychology.  The correspondences are:
     Nous, Logos - the Sattva Guna and the superego.
     Thymos - the Rajas Guna and the ego.
     Epithymia - the Tamas Guna and the id.

  • Interesting.  I am learning about sacred geometry and would appreciate your input.  What do you think of Dan Winter? 

    Did the greeks have a theory about the new chakras that are only coming online now?  Did they have knowledge about them?
