I have one student who actually is doing the work the way the work was meant to be done.
It sounds meager... but it is all I ever wanted... really.
If you have one student who actually does what you teach, you can tell if what you teach works or not. Or tweak what you teach to accommodate the difficulties they experience. And watch if the changes you made will make the results match what you intended to accomplish.
What do the rest of the people do? I mean the students in the same program? I am not sure. Apple polishing? Feeble attempts to fake me?
Humans live this fake, apple polishing lives, thinking that life should respond to their feeble attempts, to their intention, to their desire, or whatever the heck they were taught should change reality to what they want reality to be.
How to Get Your Mind to Read 1article by Daniel T. Willingham (@DTWillingham) is a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and the author, most recently, of “The Reading Mind: A Cognitive Approach to Understanding How the Mind Reads.” Republished from the New York Times Continue reading "How to get your brain to read?"
You create your own reality with the context. And inside that context you look at things... And the context, unless attended to, is mostly creating a reality that you don't want. But because you don't know how to create context, that is what you created. bummer, eh?
Context is decisive. And yet 99% of humans cannot wrap their minds around the context. Context is invisible... and most people can't see it. But...
The quality of your life, your life experience doesn't depend on the content, it only depends on the context. On the invisible.
The previous article should have explained it all, but it probably wasn't enough. So let's poke around this topic some more.
Most of us don't live in a world of our own design, or unless you consider all the voices in your head, it is the voices' design, not yours.
I can see, that without a comprehensive and accurate understanding of what causes what, what is cause, what is effect, you may not know how to change the "geography" of your life. You will be stuck where you are... or only move accidentally... so I do see the urgency in this move.
I am expanding the scope of the work I put into measuring your Starting Point Measurements to Enlightenment, to becoming a human being, even though this work more than doubles the time I have to spend with it. Eventually I'll raise the price, but not yet.
Why? For one, I want to know. But more importantly, instead of giving you a bunch of numbers, maybe I can make them useful... What and idea, right? lol.
This article has a time limited offer at the end... don't skip it!
It is not enough to call yourself a mad scientist, I learn. You may be mad, but unless you know the scientific methods, you are just mad, playing around.
Science has a bad reputation nowadays, mainly because of two reasons:
1. the public doesn't know that science is rarely able to get to the cause of anything, so the expectations are too high, the disappointments are too low. it is more comfortable to listen to fake science, fake doctors, fake gurus. At least they don't make you think.
2. the fact that scientists are not independent of biases, self-interest, and such, renders their results highly dubious, questionable, etc. And in some crucial issues, this threatens the general public, like in the issue of A1 milk, the issue of GMO, the issues of pesticides and other harmful stuff we are forced to eat.
