People have a wrong view on how to teach. They invent schools to teach and hold exams to verify intelligence while they can use digital teachers,
artifical intelligent even if they could only see how their children in the future would make things better instead of wanting short term gains like
money or prestige. In reality, everything a brain has been exposed to is recorded, it is only because of mental problems like whether or not someone
can pass a test is what makes a failure. This all comes down to self confidence, the belief in recollecting one's memory, the idea someone cannot or
has a lesser ability in recollecting is what hampers the brain in doing so. One passes a test and compares the results with others and places oneself
at some level of intelligence which should be accepted by everyone. Which sounds good, except not everyone has the same chances from the beginning and
this is not going to change unless society changes so you have a bad economy going nowhere, it's just few can see beyond their own generation to
really understand where it all leads to. This is the short version, there is a longer one but I would digress.
AI as teachers would be better because the teachers who have mental issues would not pass these on to the students, who bring it home and ofcourse
vice versa, teachers who have to deal with mental issues students bring from home. It would also eliminate the need for people to gather in schools so
there is less chance of mental disorders or false views on life to be passed on and ofcourse there wouldn't be shootings anymore while people can
defend their own territory (until authorities arrive).
Students could still socialize over the internet which could serve as a barrier or buffer zone so that wrong truths could be talked about within the
family before they become real to students who might cause problems later in life which diminishes their chances on becoming succesful and in the
bigger picture create a troublesome society to exist in.
Point being people underestimate the capabilities of the brain and this has become a self fulfilling prophecy, an illusion very difficult to see
Very often children have far greater wisdom and a grasp on deeper truths then most adult's, even if they express them in a less mature way.
There is no way anyone can look inside anothers' brain or mind, perhaps in the future when technology can be implanted in brains and thoughts can be
printed out like a picture and then they could be compared to pictures from other brains and then you could really truly see the contents of what
another is saying. Ofcourse knowing humanity such technology will undoubtedly be used in a bad way. But still, that is the only way, even using tests
to rehearse information is not a guarantee someone actually gets a concept or just explains it in the exact same way as the first person who
convincingly did so. The gain an insight requires a lot of prerequisite information which the original brains who thought of a concept did but present
day brains just don't have the same experiences, maybe similar at best but it is rare for someone to actually get something or just feel like they
got it and then convincing everyone of this to reinforce their belief, only to find out later in life they really didn't or only partially.
I have had my eye's opened more than once by the "off the cuff" comment's and observation's of a child.
Why were they closed, were they really open at some point in your life? I mean, if you see something good then your eyes should stay open so why the
need for a child to remind you. Or did you give up that good so someone else could continue with what they want you to see as something better.
