What is Death? (Attempt 2)

Photo by Spiros Kakos

I was swimming the other day.

And when I submerged my head under the water…

Right below the blistering sun.

I felt it.

I heard nothing.

I sensed nothing.

But me.

And while I floated on the water. Everything was clear. Only nothingness exists. And we foolo our selves that things do exist. By interpreting the noise of our senses for meaning.

There is nothing to see.

And yet, we see things.

It is not death we are afraid of.

But the terror of empty life.

Still, we cry when we die.

Logical isn’t it?

You also cried when you were brought to life…

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!
