The end of Airbnb…

…at least for me has come. In my case, the reason was a very very bad visitor who made damages for which Airbnb refused to pay a single euro. The visitor, of Pakistan origin who had a misleading profile, also went on to rate me very low (without me rating him). But this is just …

The Whereabouts of Knowledge

Ποτέ ξανά δεν υπήρχε τόση γνώση διαθέσιμη και τόσοι ανήξεροι άνθρωποι. When people were discussing in classical Athens, philosophers and non-philosophers alike, there was something no one could see it coming. When reading the lengthy platonic dialogues, today, one can only see their impossibility: from the very first question the reply would now be something …

Ten is Club

I have always been a proponent of a universal artistic mode, a mode that permeates, transforms and is transformed by each and …

Το επιστημονικό στάτους του Νευρογλωσσικού Προγραμματισμού (NLP)

«Whatever calls itself science isn’t». Αυτό το απόφθεγμα αποδίδεται στον πρωτοπόρο της τεχνητής νοημοσύνης, Μάρβιν Μίνσκι (M. Minsky). Και είχε δίκιο ο Μίνσκι: βλέποντας πόσο «καίγονται» να κατηγοριοποιηθούν ως «επιστημονικά» διάφορα προϊόντα και θεωρίες έτσι ώστε να αποκτήσουν ένα πιο υψηλό στάτους, το κατηγόρημα «επιστημονικό» έχει καταστεί έως και κιτς. Φυσικά, όπως σημειώνει και ο …

Am I related to the late J. Nash?

Ἀνδρῶν γὰρ ἐπιφανῶν πᾶσα γῆ τάφος Am I related to the late J. Nash? Indeed I am. Of course, everybody may be said to be related to such influential personalities -one way or another. But I have a bit stronger (and weirder) connection than that. Professor R.J. Duffin taught mathematics in Carnegie Mellon. He is …

Why dedicating my career to D. Lekkas did not involve a “leap of faith”.

D. Lekkas is –among other things– a mathematician. He reintroduced music as a formal branch of mathematics, something you couldn’t possibly know as his dissertation has not been published yet due to a series of unfortunate coincidences. However, his contributions in many epistemic1 (“scientific”) disciplines have been equally spectacular, something you could have known but …

Theosophical Octaves Law Explained

I want now to explain something that may be a bit puzzling for some people. In various works of, say, P. Uspenski (like the Fourth Way), one finds references about octaves in relation to planets, orbits, the universe etc. One may not understand, in principio, what this relation might signify. I will explain briefly and …

If Logic: True, then why Logical Positivism: False

Logical positivism was built on a contradiction. Formal mathematical symbolic logic (henceforth simply logic), as the most important scientific tool is on the same time the cornerstone of science, the reason being that logic is the only generally accepted route of putting together antecedents and reaching a sane and safe conclusion. Logic is concerned with …

Also Sprach Steiner

    Also Sprach Steiner (oder Steiner gegen Kant)   Nietzsche was a philosopher whom Rudolf Steiner greatly sympathized, even though he did not share his beliefs – something that was of secondary importance to Steiner. However this article is about another great spirit, Emmanuel Kant, and a first approach to his philosophical system through …
