Kleiber’s Law, evolution, geometries of species…


Scientists believe to have found the reason behind the validity of Kleiber’s Law in how animals and plants develop their shapes relatively to their size and mass. (1)

Some day we will know everything related to why we are as we are.
Some day we will know everything related to our body, our shape, our size.
Some day we will know everything related to our metabolism, to our biology.

When that day comes, an old man standing in the corner will simple ask… “So what? I am happier than you and I don’t know anything. I will die younger and yet I consider my self more lucky!”.

Oh, you wise man.

Where were you when we struggled to find the secrets of life in lifeless notions?
Where were you when we were eager to even kill in order to save someone’s life?
Where were you when we became so blind that we saw life even in anything besides us?

We now live longer.
And yet we are already dead…

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. Speak for yourself! Not dead yet. True, I’m not very heroic.

    We can’t help ourselves when it comes to opening the lid and looking inside to see how things tick. That’s part of what makes us human. Unfortunately, we mistake our consciousness for who we are, so dying seems unimaginable, rather than the big reality. Is that what you mean by we’re already dead?

    1. What do you mean by “we mistake our consciousness for who we are” ? Isn’t your consciousness who you are? Are you something “else” that the “I” speaking inside your head?

      1. The “I” manufactured by my brain, is partly who I am, but only a small part. Most of me carries on busily below the level of consciousness.
