Thank God my Alexa rank is down!

True story.

Quality of posts going up.

Page views going up.

Subscribers increasing.

And…

Alexa rank going down by the millions!

After the initial frustration, it was really revealing and a blessing in disguise! No, I am not writing anything to increase of manage the ranking of my site. If that was the goal, I would certainly not write obscure philosophical articles sometimes not even me understand easily, but I would try to write about all those trending hot topics that most people care about. My defiance for Harmonia Philosophica’s popularity is evident from the selection of themes to the way of writing (which essentially breaks all SEO rules). However I did expect a kind of consistency from one of the world’s most famous site ranking sites. But consistency is a rare commodity in our time.

The steep decline in the Alexa rank of this site just re-affirmed my destination. And this destination is – and was from the beginning – towards the few. Those are the ones shaping the future. When was the last time the majority of people solved any great philosophical problem anyway?

At the end, not caring about your site rank is a recipe for failure.

Because at the end the successful will turn to them for advice.

Don’t be too amazed by gold.

It is the dirt which will feed you…

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!
