It has “happened”. Or maybe not?

Events that have occured at least once, have a possibility of taking place once more in the future. It sounds logical. But is it? What does it mean “has happened once”? Based on whose experience? Does it matter if we know it has happened or not? Does it matter whether this event has taken place in the past or the future? It surely seems illogical to think of events that will happen, but the time-scale is one and unified. If you use a time machine (modern physics accepts the possibility of creating one – even though no-one has ever created one) and go to the past, then events that you know have took place, will not have “happened” for the people living there/then. And to make it even worse, if the Universe exists “for ever” as some claim, how can anything NOT have happened ever?

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

  1. “Νομίζω ότι το σύμπαν είναι ένα μήνυμα γραμμένο σε κώδικα, μια κοσμική κώδικα, και η δουλειά του επιστήμονα είναι να αποκρυπτογραφήσει ο κώδικας.” Αυτό είναι η απάντηση Heinz Pagels »στην ερώτηση« Τι είναι το σύμπαν;

    Ποικίλες οι γνώμες. Κάποιοι φυσικοί υποστηρίζουν ότι ο κλασικός κόσμος ή μακρόκοσμος δεν πάσχει από την κβαντική ασάφεια, μπορεί να αποθηκεύσει πληροφορίες και υπόκειται σ’ ένα “τόξο χρόνου”, ενώ ο κβαντικός κόσμος ή μικρόκοσμος προβάλλεται ως αδύνατος να αποθηκεύσει πληροφορίες και χρονικά ανατρέψιμος.
