Sounds, language, space, hidden knowledge…


Ηave you ever wondered why most natural languages invariably use the same spatial attributes — high versus low — to describe auditory pitch? Or why, throughout the history of musical notation, high notes have been represented high on the staff? According to a team of neuroscientists from Bielefeld University and the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, high pitched sounds feel ‘high’ because, in our daily lives, sounds coming from high elevations are indeed more likely to be higher in pitch.

What we think is based on what we feel. But wait a minute! I just posted a post claiming that what we feel is based on what we think! (see Harmonia Philosophica @ Blogger: “Violins, senses, prejudice“… at 18/5/2014)

At the end, everything is interconnected.

In fact, so much interconnected that you do not see the difference.
So much interrelated that you finally end up with… One!

Or… nothing!
Or… everything.
Or… whatever!

You get the point! 🙂

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!
