Observation: It destroys life… Can you observe your self?


We destroy what we observe. From observers we automatically become participants in anything we want to “watch from a distance”. Either it is a simple photograph of a natural ecosystem or a photo of some friends partying, he who takes the role of the observer becomes part of what we observes whether he likes it or not.

We like to believe we can observe the cosmos. And yet we can only be part of it. We like to believe we can see life as an objective analyst/ philosopher and yet we can only live it.

Experience is the ultimate analytical tool. Not analysis of observation. Live and you will understand. Experience and you will know. Analysis of something you have now experienced means nothing. At all. Does it matter what you think of miracles of you haven’t experienced one? The only thing that could happen by analyzing miracles is to not believe one when you see it. Does it matter what you think about God if you have not experienced Him? The only thing that could happen is that you would not recognize Him when He stood of front of you. Does it matter what you think about existentialism if you have not experienced existence? The only thing that could happen is… well I would not know. I exist! 😉

Stop watching. Stop analyzing. Stop thinking.

And you will become the world’s best and truest philosopher.

Living people.


This is what we need.

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!
