Living. Dying. Taking things as they are… Setting barriers.

Knowingly taking placebo pills eases pain, study finds. (1)

A 600-years old tree finally died. (2)

What can one say about a death? What can one do when he is ill?

Try not to think of anything. Try to take things as they are.

You see? Not too difficult.

You do NOT see that oak tree.

You do NOT care about whether the pills were placebo.

You ARE feeling better.

Like a small crab caring only for things happening within a 10-inch radius. Like a butterfly caring only for how it will spend it’s only day in this cosmos. Like a kid laughing at his father while everything around them are falling apart.

It’s feeling weird isn’t it?

It feels like…

Life.

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!
