Philosophy Wire: Astrology: Once more verified. (by science!) [OR: Logos vs. Law 1-0]

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-08-14]: Scientists have long noticed a strange correlation between when we’re born and how likely it is that we’ll experience certain health problems, including allergies. Thanks to an international team of researchers, we now can at least partly explain how this happens: The season you were born in can leave certain “markers” (DNA methylation) on your DNA that may influence your health, said Dr. John Holloway, professor of allergy and respiratory genetics at the University of Southampton in England and a co-author of the new study. [1]

Everything affects everything. A statement so simple it cannot be wrong. And yet modern science has managed to isolate systems from the rest of the world, to over-analyze things and break them into parts seemingly indifferent for each other.

Remove the “Nomos” (Gr. Νόμος = Law) from the stars. [astro-nomy]
Put back the “Logos” (Gr. Λόγος = Wisdom). [astro-logy]
The universe is wise and One.
Not “laws” but Logic governs it.
Look at the stars this cool night.

They talk to you.
They sing…
