The problem of problems…

The problem with solving problems. You are always changing your view on the problem as time passes by. So much that sometimes you do not realize that you have solved the problem. (1)

We spend all our lives in solving problems.

At work. At our personal relationships. Everywhere.

But why try to solve problems in the first place?

Why not move backwards in time and go back to an era where there were no problems at all? Be a kid. No, you weren’t stupid back then. You are now. Because no matter how many things you’ve learned, you have forgotten the most important non-knowledge you ever had: That in the beginning you didn’t know anything at all*…

* And, thus, all “knowledge” (and related problems) gained afterwards is based on that nothing. Difficult? Never mind. You will solve it. Eventually…

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!
