True Happiness. True Wealth. (Attention: Boring post. But important.)


“I’m quitting Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr,” Essena O’Neil wrote in a final post. “Deleted over 2,000 photos here today that served no real purpose other than self-promotion. Without realizing, I’ve spent majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance.”

Before deleting her account, O’Neil edited the captions on several photos to show what was really happening in the snapshots, revealing that a beach bikini photo actually took more than 100 attempts “trying to make my stomach look good,” and that she “would have hardly eaten that day.”

On a photo of her posing in a sexy white gown: “NOT REAL LIFE – I didn’t pay for the dress, took countless photos trying to look hot for Instagram, the formal made me feel incredibly alone.” [1]

Jack Nicolson: “I am afraid I will die alone”. [2]

Try to read those boring philosophy posts once in a while.

And you will discover simple but universal truths.

No, you do not need that Lamborghini.

No, you do not need to fuck all these women.

All you need is a smile.

(OK, and some slapping before that, so that you forget the Lamborghini and the women)

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!
