Science describes. Nothing more.



A new type of quasar found, puzzles scientists since the current theories do not predict its existence. (1)

The process of science adapting to experimental data is so fast that we hardly ever notice the fact that theory comes AFTER observations…

Science is here to describe…

Nothing more.

All scientific models will always fit the data because they are all designed to… fit the data! (The ones which do not are simply not updated yet)

Wittgenstein, Godel and even Nietzsche tried to warn us. But in an era of scientism it is dangerous to speak against science.

But if you don’t trust me, trust your eyes.

Let the glass fall down.

And think: In the old days the glass went down because of… Zeus. Then came the field of gravity. And now we have… curved spacetime. In the future we might have strings or parallel universes. Who knows?

But guess what…

The glass will still fall the same way. And every single theory of the above will predict it. So stop seeing the obvious and instead concentrate on what you do not see. And only then will you see everything…

Science and logos is here to describe what you see.

Nothing more.

At the end there will be theories which explain the new quasar. And people will cheer. But only because people have forgotten that describing the new quasar was never our goal…

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. 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. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. 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. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!
