Harmonia Philosophica: Articles from the future? [Time travel blogging and the illusion of control]

Advertisements

Harmonia Philosophica sites include many pre-scheduled articles. This is the only way sites of this magnitude can be sustained so that their readers are up-to-date.

However there is an amazing little secret in these scheduled articles: They include also many post-mortem articles which will apprear in many years from now, including many which will appear centuries from now up to even 10,000 (yes, ten thousand) years from now!

Why is that?

Well, simply put: I have a lot of things to say and so little time to say it!

So I constantly write and write and write, until I… keep on writing! An in order not to overdose my readers with daily articles (or even multiple articles per day) I just spread the articles in time…

So everything seems under control…

Right? Wrong!

Recently one of my post-mortem posts showed up in one of my sites!

Well before its time (it was scheduled to be published on August 15 of the year 2359, you can now see it at my other Harmonia portal at Blogger! Check the date! It is the correct one! August 15, 2359! And yet… here it is!

Conspiracy?

Time travel?

Who knows?

All I know, is that I was right!

Nothing is under control. (check the post to see what I mean)

I feel so relaxed now…

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!
