Harmonia Philosophica Addendum I - Reality

Addendum of Harmonia Philosophica (english)

Writer: Spiros Kakos


Some philosophers ask "Why is the world the way it is?!" But maybe the world is not what we think. Maybe the world is not "in a specific way" at all. Maybe all thing just "are" like Parmenides used to think and say...Some people say that what we experience in our dreams is "not real". But how can you dream of something that does not exist at all? How can you even think of something that does not exist at all?

If we are sleeping about the same hours we are awake, what makes us so certain that dream is "fake" and not the other way around?

Murfy's Law seems to have applications to every moment of our lifes. Maybe this is not something random. Maybe we shape reality with our thoughts and fears, thus creating those "weird" coincidences... Maybe someone who is impatient, is not by chance getting into so many events that "test" his impatience... Maybe someone who is ill-empered, is not by chance getting into so many events that "test" his temper... Maybe, as modern quantum-mechanics imply, we actually "make reality"...

The world of logic has so many antinomies. But what does an "antinomy" mean? Antinomy is actually a situation where something seems true despite the logical "laws" which should deem it "false". But what is no laws existed? Then no antinomies could exist... And in a world where the reality is shaped by each and everyone of us, no universal laws exist... Antinomies can only stop existing in a world without laws. And the only world without laws in the world where events are shaped by our own free will...
