Accuracy: Does it even exist? Break the mirror.


Better thermometers might be possible as a result of a discovery, where physicists have found a way to calibrate temperature measurements by monitoring the tiny motions of a nanomechanical system that are governed by the often counterintuitive rules of quantum mechanics. (1)

Accuracy: The measure of how correct you are based on what you have defined as correct. Looks simple and yet… one can never be as much correct as he would like.

Defining things seems to be the way to build science and yet the only thing to which it has led us is more… definitions and even more failure to comply with them. Are we progressing or are we locked into an everlasting chain of meaningless quests? The only way to break this infinite circle is to stop doing what we thought we should be doing.

Are we ready to change the way we think?

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!
