Education

September 28, 2020

At best education/knowledge is based on

Hearsay convenience and repetition

How do we know there are only ten numbers

Because it is what has been taught

It is convenient and easily repeatable

Hint : There weren’t always ten

Until zero came along

Same goes for the alphabet

It didn’t always have twenty six letters

(Darn that restrictive qwerty keyboard)

So why would it have stopped there

Because it is what has been taught

It is convenient and easily repeatable

Ergo what one knows about life

Religion race government money wars

Gender history genealogy and geology

Is because it is what has been taught

It is convenient and easily repeatable

Here’s a mildly humorous example

Mildly is being generous

Group of tourists going through

A jurassic museum as their guide

Explains a fossil of a dinosaur is

Two million two years and three months old…

Fascinated a guest inquires how has it

That it has been narrowed down so exact

Has the museum tweaked the carbon dating

Or come up with some radiation method

How could it possibly be so accurate

As the guide confidently states they started

To work here two years and three months ago

What you know is what has been taught

It is convenient and easily repeatable

If all that was erased and all one knew is

That we are the spawn of Gaia consciousness

Floating through the cosmos with a view

From a front row seat on the spaceship

Earth……..no wait our ancestors named it that

(We could rename it if we wanted to)

Under a clear protective atmosphere to

Live love learn laugh guide and repeat

Know no country no unnatural borders

No religion race government money wars

Gender history genealogy and geology

That we are each sparks of the divine

Knowing “we are all one consciousness

Experiencing itself subjectively” – Bill Hicks

Essentially and selfishly looking out for

Our selves by looking out for each other

Of course though it could get trapped into

How we know what we know is what

We’ve been taught but wow what an

Education that would be

What do you think?
