Waves. Seismic activity. Soul.

Scientists have long known that Earth produces an eerie low-frequency hum that’s inaudible to humans but detectable with seismic instruments. But as for what’s causing this “microseismic” activity, scientists have never been sure.

Until now.

A new study published online Feb. 10, 2015 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters indicates that the hum is largely due to ocean waves that cause our planet to vibrate subtly – or “ring”, as the researchers put it. [1]

Weird how we tend to look at everything material with so much detail and yet we fail to recognize the importance of non-material entities into our lives. We recognize how waves can result into a global “activity” and yet fail to recognize even the possibility of feelings or emotions resulting in any kind of “activity” that is felt beyond the tight limitations of our inner circle of acquaintances. We accept the effects of the gravity of a star billions of miles away from us and yet we fail to accept that good or evil thoughts could in any way affect us if they are not spoken or acted upon within five meters of where we stand.

We have created a material world around us.

And our immaterial soul suffers…

Listen to the waves breaking on the shore.

It is not their “activity” which makes you cry with longing emotions…

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!
