Learning the foundations…

Contrary to widely-held opinion, taking high school calculus isn’t necessary for success later in college calculus – what’s more important is mastering the prerequisites, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry – that lead to calculus. That’s according to a study of more than 6,000 college freshmen at 133 colleges. (1)

Great line of reasoning. Except that we chose to stop it at a point of our choosing. How do you learn algebra, geometry, and trigonometry? Is it important to learn those or do you just need to learn their prerequisites as well?

Go back in the beginning.

To see that there is no prerequisite…

Based on nothing…

A cosmos was born…

You try to keep him alive.

But it really wants to die.

Don’t be sad.

Let that tear flow down your cheek…

Your life will soon end.

And that is the one and one prerequisite you will ever need to Be…

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!
