The Twelve Years Spent At School

School time was an anxiety-filled period for most, if not all, of us. 

Yet, school time is considered crucial for imparting education in children, and parents spend a lot of time, money and effort ensuring their kids are completing school and college.

What if all the knowledge that is provided to kids in school could simply be inserted in their brains, just like Neo’s brain in The Matrix is uploaded with knowledge about kung-fu and other fighting techniques, instantly making him a ninja?

Inserting Knowledge In The Brain

The thought experiment of being able to insert knowledge and other desirable states instantly in the brain raises some interesting questions and caveats.

  • Uploading knowledge inside the brain frees up thousands of hours, otherwise required for the slow, conventional learning process.
  • Side-lessons, the unexpected stuff we learn while getting educated, are lost if the entire learning process is reduced to a few minutes.

The Value Of The Journey

The three things that add value to our lives are:

  1. Pursuing goals of value(the effort).
  2. Achieving valuable goals(the achievement).
  3. Being in a state of value.

Hours of practice and effort leads to achievement and a transformation to a particular state. Knowledge, if earned, feels deserving and adds a sense of accomplishment.

Pedagogical Relationships

Insertion of knowledge robs one of the connections and relationships that are formed with teachers, mentors, parents and school mates, which have their own intrinsic value.

The time spent in school has various emotional, intuitive, imaginative, attentive, responsive aspects apart from a mere transfer of knowledge.

Becoming A Different Person

Insertion of knowledge has another potential problem: unpredictable changes in behaviour, personality or character.

The person who has had new knowledge inserted in the brain may become a completely different person who can feel alien to us.

We should tread with caution about the unpredictable aspects of inserting instant knowledge inside us, as it is a shortcut that can be extremely beneficial, but have unwanted side-effects.

The journey is part of the destination.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Jamyson Haug
