Staying alive. Afraid to die. Accepting death. The story of our life…

Life and death…

A drug used to treat advanced breast cancer has had what appears to be unprecedented success in prolonging lives in a clinical trial, researchers reported.

Patients who received the drug — Perjeta, from the Swiss drug maker Roche — had a median survival time nearly 16 months longer than those in the control group. (1)

We are all afraid to die.
But we do not know what death is.
We like living.
But again whatever we feel is something unpredictable. Something illogical.
We do not know why we are here. We do not know what we experience and why.

In the end we will all die.
Those who get sick, as well as those who stay healthy until their very last day.
Those who get cancer and those who don’t.
Those who get expensive treatment and those who cannot spare a dollar to get medicine.

Don’t worry too much then.
Don’t try so hard.

What life is…
As the song said it…
Is not a question. But a lesson learned in time.
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life…

Now go find that mustard seed. [Buddha]

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!
