In essence, we are trained, not educated.


I like that too. Most of the time the concept of trained and educated are mixed. In other words it is think that a person with required GP and other grades and doing a c.e.o job in a good company is educated. But it must have in mind that it does not mean that that person is sure educated. Education for me is the something that teaches you learn for learn.

Do you honestly believe that just merely existing "today" makes you smarter than someone back then? It is an outdated mindset, borne of our whole "rising from apes" concept where our cavemen ancestors were stooped over and not even able to pee without getting it all over their hands.



If we follow your line of thinking, I would find it quite depressing if we are smarter than what our descendants will be 5000 years from now. If this will be the trend, then what's the point of anything if not to increase our knowledge (and increase it exponentially) every thousand years or so?

Education may considered as training but training can not.

Breathtaking, Must have been unbelievably stunning against the sky at sunrise and sunset. Is it just me, or did the ancients do so much more, with so much less?

I agree with you totally. Every time I hear somebody (talking about ancient architecture) say "How could they have created such precision work without a computer?" I usually reply, "Uh, they actually had to think?"

Thinking is a skill that is slowly falling by the wayside. I'm guilty of it myself, grab a calculator everytime I need to add or subtract. I've actually been forcing myself to write math problems out on paper recently, and I'm finding I can think better after doing that for a while.

I love to write, and I love to think about things at length, all by myself. You know, things like why are we here, what was I born to accomplish... philosophical things. It's so refreshing to just turn your mind loose, let it wander around and see what falls out!
