?What is education
The process of learning something new or not understood is the basic foundation of why schools and universites were created, for the mass impart of knowledge and information for a wider understanding of the world and its mechanical substance. However, the intellectual information received has been prone to particular interference either by retaining an unreliable status or by authorital institutions influenced by political bias which has damaged to a great degree the nature of critical thinking.

Final examination papers contain certain and inapproiate methods of determining the aqcuired value of true understanding and, in some case reflecting a poor fragment of assesment of the pupils learned understanding. Most examinations presented in schools are no more substantive then general memory tests from reading pre-selected text books as writ in school curriculum.

The prize for this is the aquirement of good grade passes and paper certificates splashed with grandous claims of intellectual superiority yet many leave the education system without understanding or wisdom, their intellect is stagnated and bounded by educational peership.


When students by their own free will and spontaneous initative, can freely analyse and criticize the theroies they study, they will stop being mere subjerctive and stupid, mechanical entities.
Samael Aun Weor, Fundamental Education


Teachers at the entry level schools including some higher level schools are bound by set methods which does not encourage creative thinking and are fearful of criticisms, evidence of the null-intelligence of dogma. These educational factories aim to produce a single and damaging curriculum which serves no true value once the long process of school has ended. The adaptation of new and relevant knowledge is slow within its framework and not considered worthy of incorparation of study until it is too late. Thus the previous schooling generation is unaware of errors in their accumulation of knowledge and understanding which is ridiculed to a certain extent by the next generation.

Subjects that are studied based on information imitation lead to sleeping wisdom and cater, and only to unfaithful memory. There is no knoweledge revolution for the mind and sadly this leads a society that becomes decayed and dangerous in the process of mechanical Government.

Reading Fundamental Education written by Samael Weor will help with the understanding with some aspects of utilizing critical thinking and explores key problematic concepts which still prevail today.

Here are some of my choice quotes.


Unconscious authorities have filled the world with pain and tears...abuse authority at home and at school.



Dictators of the mind are as common as weeds. Everywhere there is a perverse tendency to enslave, to bottle up other peoples minds, to force them to live within determined norms, prejudices etc.



Everybody wants to enslave everyone...to violate the intellectual freedom. The mind has been abused too much.



Nowadays, FEAR and the search for SECURITY have turned planet Earth into a horrible hell



All wars have their origins in fear and AMBITION




Samael Aun Weor (Hebrew: סמאל און ואור) (March 6, 1917 – December 24, 1977), born Víctor Manuel Gómez Rodríguez, was an author, lecturer and founder of the Universal Christian Gnostic Movement.[1] His teaching of 'The Doctrine of Synthesis' of all religions in both their esoteric and exoteric aspects[2] has been called neo-Gnostic by the historian of esotericism Arthur Verslius[3] and called by the historian Jean-François Mayer "a science of consciousness or knowledge that may be attained through certain techniques.

I think Samael would be delighted with fourms like ATS, whose select members wash away the repugnancy of lies and secrets that assail us from every corner of government and news media alike, promoting critical thinking to the dim mind of society.

I am inclined to agree that this gnostic theosophist would have enjoyed the extensive range of discussion and search for reason which peppers ATS so abundantly.

While I am not aligned with his personal dogmas, I am always pleased by those who understand and share the truth behind the notion that first principles are the core of our lives and it is only the constructs layered (or heaped, perhaps) on top of them which restrains and constricts the growth of humans.

His approaches to modern science while adhering to ancient models of wisdom is worthy of deep study.

I was delighted with how much I had agreements with his insightful observations. I will be looking forward to reading some of the other books he has written.
