Notes on the Musma Composition

“Aporia Apeiron”

Aporia or aporeia (Ancient Greek: άπορεία: impasse; lack of resources; puzzlement; doubt, confusion) denotes in philosophy a philosophical puzzle or state of puzzlement and in rhetoric a rhetorically useful expression of doubt. Apeiron´(άπείροѵ) is a Greek word meaning unlimited, infinite or indefinite. The apeiron is central to the cosmological theory created by Anaximander in the 6th century before BC. Anaximander’s work is mostly lost. From the few existing fragments, we learn that he believed the beginning of ultimate reality (arche) is eternal and infinite, or boundless (apeiron), subject to neither old age nor decay, which perpetually yields fresh materials from which everything we can perceive is derived. Apeiron generated the opposites, hot-cold, wet-dry etc., which acted on the creation of the world. Everything is generated from apeiron and then it is destroyed there according to necessity. He believed that infinite worlds are generated from apeiron and then they are destroyed there again.
