Application before the theory… Living without knowing…

A new discovery explains what happens during the phase transition in Dirac materials, paving the way for engineering advanced electronics that perform significantly faster. (1)

The dogma that theory should precede practical applications is a very persistent one. We are all affected by it. But remember: the biggest practical applications of modern days science are related to fields of science not understood at all. Your greatest moments in life were merely understood when they happened. Life itself is not understood. Are you ready to give it up until you explain it?

Not knowing seems not only a state of mind reflecting our current state of understanding the cosmos, but a prerequisite of living itself.

If we understood everything, if we knew it all, then we would seize from being part of the cosmos. And the cosmos would have just become a dying part of us.

Look at that cup of coffee.

It is not an αντι-κείμενο*.

It is part of you.

Think about it.

Or rather not…

* Greek for ‘object’. Literally meaning ‘that which lies (κείται) opposite (αντί-) to you’. To be compared to ‘υποκείμενο’ (you, me, a human).

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
