Bio

I've always hated writing my bio, as what is there to say in words that can accurately reflect my true nature? I am a human being, born and alive, with unique experiences and a unique perspective; reflecting my reality and moving through the dream- interacting, altering, stimulating, providing, and above all... loving. I am just like you, as you are just like me, the tiny differences of our illusion just a myth, a game. I am a seeker of happy, and an activist for good. My purpose here is nothing more then to infect those around me with positivity, truth, and an all-encompassing peace.

Talent pool being robbed in schools
I love to learn Daniel, but I detest modern education. Why? Because forced learning, along with the spoon feeding of facts to be later regurgitated, is not true learning. It is a broken system and absolutely kills curiosity and innovation. This is not to say we don't need to learn the basics. It's all about how you go about it, and the current system of babysitter teachers (and professors) in a controlled, high stress, and standardized environment is detrimental to humanity. It detrimental to those who teach. It's unnatural and counter-productive to sustained knowledge. We have to change this, or we'll find ourselves in a world of incapable individuals struggling to dream again.

Modern education was created, in my opinion, as a machine to spew out good little factory workers. Obedient, narrow-minded, and above all, productive ciitizens who will be more then happy to spend the rest of their slaving away, If only to build a smelly mound of crap to place their flag. Of course, there are those who use it to ther advantage and see through the bullsh*t, and it is those very people who generally find success. It pains me however, to think of all the beautiful, intelligent children who are braided, put down, and left behind because they don't "conform" to traditional standards. This is by far the greastest failure of our time, and in my opinion, the greatest potential to make lasting change. Reform education, and promote the true philosophy of learning. Don Anderson made some very good suggestions on my conversation about Revolution. He brought up an Idea involving international online education available to all, combined with home schooling programs and/or small groups. I would love to hear your thoughts on how to solve the problem, and what we can do now to begin implementing it. Great conversation!!!!

Revolution! ... or peaceful protest? What is the best method for change, and why should we be talking about it?
That is a good observation Kazu. The idea of taxing the rich to appease the poor is a failing model. Not only will it negatively affect those who work hard to become successful, it will not, contrary to many beliefs, help the poor in a meaningful, lasting way. A hand-out is rarely valued compared to effort and reward, and by giving something for nothing, expectation is bred, and thus, entitlement. A better method would be a way to encourage and assist the poor in promoting themselves and their livelihood. Have you heard about micro-financing?

I'll check out that talk shortly, thank you for sharing. I love it Don, and I too believe this would drastically improve education. You are correct, the long-term change must start with our youth. True education: the promotion of curiosity, innovation, and philosophy; why did we forget this?! It's due time to stop pumping out factory workers and begin promoting the human imagination. Let's bring back the explorers, the inventors, and the philosophers. Let us find our humanity again! Don, I'd love to talk more on this subject soon. Ideas are the beginning, but action is the change.

Indeed. Although it seems harsh, it is reality. I personally believe in reincarnation and classify the above described people as being "young souls". If you see an individual as such, you will be less likely to treat the other as inferior. I do not believe any human being is "better" then another, but simply more developed intellectually. We must find a way to promote goodness and change in everyone, including those seemingly uninterested; this my friend, is the start of real change.
