The truth. NOT as 1+1=2… [Pythagoras, Hippasus, Silence]

Physicists avoid highly mathematical work despite being trained in advanced mathematics, new research suggests.

The study, published in the New Journal of Physics, shows that physicists pay less attention to theories that are crammed with mathematical details. This suggests there are real and widespread barriers to communicating mathematical work, and that this is not because of poor training in mathematical skills, or because there is a social stigma about doing well in mathematics.

Dr. Tim Fawcett and Dr. Andrew Higginson, from the University of Exeter, found, using statistical analysis of the number of citations to 2000 articles in a leading physics journal, that articles are less likely to be referenced by other physicists if they have lots of mathematical equations on each page.

Mathematics is a far too accurate tool to depict the truth.

The truth is elusive.

The truth is subjective.

The truth is mystical.

Look beyond 1+1=2…

Look beyond the equations…

The meaning of what you want to say, cannot be said with numbers. The essence of what you want to express, cannot be expressed with words. First of all we need to understand. How we express what we understand comes afterwards and is a matter of choice.

Back in the days of Pythagoras, members of an elite cast discovered that not everything can be expressed as numbers. They decided to keep the secret safe. They even murdered in order to accomplish that. They succeeded. For too many years people believed in numbers. For so long, people believed in the ability to articulate the “truth” with words and mathematical expressions.

We live in the days of quantum mechanics and consciousness research dead ends though. We are now starting to believe that perhaps not everything can be said.

Pythagoras was right about silence.

It is not just a matter of keeping secrets. It never was.

Is IS the tool which reveals truths!

Only if you stand long enough and listen to it…

Listen…

Hippasus’ silence is deafening…

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. 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! View all posts by skakos

      Relative to whom?

      1. itself and not-itself is relative, you and me, so everything we can think and express by words, is base on this discrimination. And i think the Ultimate Truth can be found by that thinking method.
