Seeing with data. Seeing with your eyes. New vs. Old.

The Boeing 777 airliner that has been missing for more than two weeks crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 passengers and crew, according to a fresh analysis of the satellite data broadcast by the stricken Malaysia Airlines plane.
The news that relatives had dreaded came in an announcement by Malaysia’s prime minister Najib Razak, who said an analysis by the UK’s Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) and the London-based satellite services provider Inmarsat was of a type never before performed on air incident data. But he is confident in its conclusions. (1)

An aricraft down.
Not because we saw it.
But because the data says so.

Seeing without seeing…
A priviledge of our era.
An era which takes pleasure in ridiculing past days where people were “superstitious”.

But these people had only their senses to rely on.
These people understood the world not through their “logic” but through their experience.
They were true “materialists”.
They were the ones who relied only on evidence.

And they saw (literally) the soul of the cosmos.
They were able to see their importance.
They could sense their immortality.
They could know their spirit.
We are now blind, relying only on our inner beliefs to claim that we are nothing.
Our inner eye has lost its sight.

Open your eyes if your want to see the truth.

Without any “data”…

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!
