Ocean. Rogue waves. Darkness.

Rogue waves are extremely high ocean waves that exceed the significant wave height by more than a factor of 2. Extreme waves are also very rare; less than one in 100,000 waves exceeds the rogue wave criterion. While their existence was long disputed throughout the 1990s, thousands of rogue waves have been recorded on oil rigs in the past 20 years. Nevertheless, the origin of rogue waves is still disputed, with a multitude of competing theories that fall into two basic categories: linear theories consider incidental random interference the origin of rogue waves. Recently nonlinear theories gained increasing popularity as they promise that certain characteristic wave patterns may possibly precede a rogue event. (1)

“Something interacts” and “something happens” …

Randomly or not, it does not matter.

Because the actual nature of the ocean is beyond any such interpretation.

The ocean is deep, cold, scary. The ocean is mystical, alone, powerful. The ocean is peaceful. The ocean is dark. The ocean is silent. The ocean is never random. Look at the large waves. The ocean does not interact. The ocean Is. Let yourself go. Feel the power of the cold water. Feel the loneliness of the cosmos.

The ocean is what it is.

You are drowning…

Watching the sun fade away…

As you descend to the depths of the abyss…

Afraid. Cold.

And yet…

A sudden warmth welcomes you…

Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. 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. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. 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. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!

      I am not sure if I knew that. In general the ocean symbolizes many things in my mind… 🙂
