Cappadocia, Middle of the Middle in Turkey.

The Chinese call their country Zhong Guo: The Middle Kingdom.
However, his opponents, the Turks, also settled in a Middle (Anatolia)
In the middle of the middle; Cappadocia

From this point of view, the steppes of Inner Asia and Asia Minor have been the vast spaces where the connection with the skies has been established, the source of thoughts of the people. The thoughts of the people also fed the thinkers. The Silk Road steppes in Inner Asia and the Cappadocia region and surrounding areas in Asia Minor were the areas where the richest works were produced in the Eskişehir, Ankara, Konya, Kırşehir, Niğde, Nevşehir line. The first examples that come to our minds were Yunus Emre, Mevlana, Hacıbektaş Veli, thinkers who grew up in the steppe.

Cappadocia, the middle point of Asia Minor, and the steppe and agricultural basin areas in the middle of Central Asia were the main centers of thought. The source thinkers, whom we consider as a reference in our work, always came from these fields in Central Asia. The nourishment of the sky, the sun and the moon, the rain and the breeze, made the person dynamic.
