Genes are key to academic success, study suggests. Parents always worry about whether their children will do well in school, but their kids probably were born with much of what they will need to succeed, new research suggests. (1) In another study, “bravery” cells were found in the hippocampus. (2) Another study found the mechanisms with which the brain forgets. Researchers have analysed what happens in the brain when humans want to voluntarily forget something. They identified two areas of the brain — the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus — whose activity patterns are characteristic for the process of forgetting. They measured the brain activity in epilepsy patients who had electrodes implanted in the brain for the purpose of surgical planning. (3)

Every day we are bombarded with news about how science explains things. And under a diabolic coincidence, all these explanations produced have one philosophical dogma as their basis: Materialism. We are matter. Things are matter. The universe is matter. A living matter nonetheless. A matter with consciousness. A matter which can die. And be reborn. A matter which can cry. A matter which can laugh.

In the cold vast universe.

Full of nothing.

Humans dream.

They dream of matter. So they see matter.

One day they will wake up. And everything will disappear.

One day they will die. And they will be born…

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!
