Bacteria language… Staying silent… Being wise…


Bacteria seem to be have a more complicated “language” than we thought. They can communicate with each other not only via single “words” (in the form of chemical signals via a single specific molecule) but also via combinations of these words!!! (1)

Language seems to be inherent to every living being.

It seems that we are not at all unique due to the fact that we can intelligently communicate via a language.

But how important is language?

The best knowledge is transmitted though the lack of words – not via the excess of speech. Pythagoras, Parmenides, Christ, Buddha said far less than the actual wisdom they transmitted. When will we understand that what makes us so special is the fact that we can stay SILENT?

The wisest men stay humble in front of the cosmos. Shhhhhh….

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!

    I wonder if this is the origin of what we call Universal grammar (UG) is a theory in linguistics is actually not hardwired into the brain as such, but exists at a cellular level and perhaps beyond… food for thought. Thanks for posting this.
