What is really important. Nobel prizes. Women…


We believe they are lucky. (1)

But we do not see how miserable they really are.

Perhaps the best trick of them all, is that unhappy miserable people with money and glory have convinced “common” people that they are better and happier than them.

But happiness does not come with glory or money. Happiness comes from a woman happy next to you. From all the people ever lived, we most look up to the only one who had nothing in His possession.

Seek the empty, if you wish to be full, said Tao. And so we must all do if we are to truly live. The rich, the famous, the “important” try to persuade us that being rich, famous or “important” is the quintessence of life. But we should know better. They should know better.

I do not pray for a Nobel prize. Higgs prays for not losing his wife…

What you think important is unimportant. What you think unimportant is everything…

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!
