Coldest fire

“This is the coldest fire that I have ever witnessed.”

“Stop talking in riddles.”

“Well, fire just burns. We label it with nouns such as glow, warmth, heat or destruction.”

“It is the intensity that matters.”

“The intensity links up more to human emotions at that point of time.  Of what use is a bonfire with no people around it? It is not only the coldest night, but the loneliest bonfire.”

  1. Shortest philosophical treatise ever, after I think, therefore I am. 😊. Fire–and most natural phenomena– seem to exist for us, only in their relation to us. The egocentricism of human experience.

  2. That a fire is only a fire when a human is warmed by it is an interesting take on the nature of reality. It’s also the conundrum that lies at the heart of quantum theory, and it gives physicists sleepless nights!
