Question - Should we make increasing our consciousness as important a topic in schools as the 3 Rs.
I not only believe that consciousness goes beyond the five (or more) senses, to me is is part and parcel of the Universe. The Universe, not just ours, but the totality of all universal life we can see and not see, is all One, living, breathing, feeling, thinking consciousness 'soup.' But that's just me and a few billion others who see evidence of it every day in every way. I read recently that a belief is only a thought we keep thinking over and over, and that to change our thinking is to change our lives. Our minds, our thoughts--thinking--have the ability to change, alter, create our current realities to those more in tune with what we would rather experience. I know it; I've seen it; Ive done it. Change your thinking, change your life. That is part of the path the new 'consciousness' is taking, will be taking us right along with it. When we finally get to the point where we realize that LIFE is not happening to us, but that WE are happening to life, that we have choices in the lives we lead, the circumstances we are in, the experiences we have, we will have taken a giant step for the future of humanity.

Question - Should we make increasing our consciousness as important a topic in schools as the 3 Rs.
Absolutely. It is AS important, if not more so, than math and history. Humanity is becoming more aware, not just of the world, but of our place in it and our ability--and responsibility--to keep its citizens from destroying their only home. Spirituality is not religion... Spirituality, and its offspring such as bio-feedback, meditation, visualization, intention, etc., are states of consciousness that have proven to reduce stress, create happiness, increase health AND wealth, even heal us from terminal illnesses. So, yes... the time is ripe for consciousness to be made a mandatory curriculum in schools. People (children are people too) tend to meet our expectations of them. We must expect more of them, greater of them--not less. I might add that, courses like math and history might be diminished to make room for classes in self-esteem, anger management, social skills, and communication, to name a few.

Beardyman: The polyphonic me
I am a fan of Mike Tompkins, who also sings and plays all the instruments with just his voice/sounds. It's amazing, not just that they can do it, but that they THOUGHT to do it!

Beardyman: The polyphonic me
Beardyman's ability to create his vocal sound effects amazing... truly. However, inputting his incredible 'noises' (his words) into a machine diminished the experience for me and I was a bit disappointed. Most likely, I would have appreciated a pure 'recording' of the various sounds he can make with his mouth/throat (e.g., an orchestral piece, a cacophony of nature sounds, etc.) instead of the digitized results that emanated from his machine, so... less like a synthesizer, more natural.

Beardyman: The polyphonic me
Thanks for checking him out, Amy. One of the things I like about Mike is his personality--modest, unassuming and not at all cocky. All his vocal sounds are exactly that... his 'vocal' sounds… they're not added to a machine, digitized, or mechanized in any way... just pure honest sound.
