Learning should be considered a super power! Traditional schooling illustrates that the ability to absorb knowledge, duplicate skills and regurgitate information, is a sliding scale. However, what if everyone has equally ability to learn, grow ideas and apply knowledge. We are aware that people learn in different ways and that mainstream topics may not be interesting to all.
Almost the complete first world has accepted a generic, one size fits all schooling system. Children and young adults are forced to forfeit their innocent years for behavioural pruning, locked-in then routinely fed approved programming. The brain training is extensive (13 years and growing) for a long future of receiving instruction. This destructive habit building process of uniform activities, has high jacked a 'valued education' of critical thinking and stolen the imagination of generations.
The students are distracted during critical years of mental and physical brain development, while their parents have 100% of their trust in federal government bodies and corporate interests. The socially accepted education system is believed to serve families, while economic constraints hold mum and dad at work, while the children are being baby sat.
Machines have no mind, machines are also rated on output. Our children are taught performance from day one - A, B, we 'C' that you are average, ‘D' and why are you such an F?
Now lets explore some ideas, in short - everyone has a preferred learning style, visual, aural, read/write and kinaesthetic. You don’t need to be a professor to realise that combinations of styles accompanied with targeted studies that align with individual interests will improve learning effectiveness. Expanding the experience by including multiple senses can be very useful in effective learning.
Now for those jumping ahead, I am not setting up an argument pro the introduction of psychedelics to the classroom. However, being able to cross wire the human brain and experience short periods of synesthesia (seeing sounds, hearing colours and tasting language) could potential have some positive application. From the perspective of a sensible adult studying a vast topic (the life experience) and with no prescribed curriculum, perhaps psychedelics have something to offer? New research in the area of micro-dosing psychedelic substances (LSD) have published positive results and illustrated extremely interesting effects on the brain.
In this episode, we discuss a new found benefit to homeschooling and a few personal views on living to expand your mind. Kurt outlines the philosophy of trip life, an option to pursue a career as a psychedelic adventurer - ‘If you're not coming down from a trip, you are preparing for another’. This came from the concept of avoiding the cage of a small-town mindset and expanding it to universes and possibly dimensions, If you dare.
