As everyone is dreaming about the metaverse, we have to remember our consciousness is not a brain process that happens in out brains, but a full experience with our bodies. This has some big insights on learning.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

The myth of mind body separation

We think of our body as a brain that operates a machine of flesh & bones. Our mind distinctively separated from our bodies. It's why we think we can start living in the meta-verse.

But we don't have a body. We are a body!

All our consciousness is the result of our body interacting with the world and other people. Separating the 2, even in theory, makes no sense.

Knowledge ≠ Knowing

We think our minds can be filled with information, books, methods etc... Like a container. That metaphor is broken. 

There is a huge difference between knowledge and knowing. The transition from to another is activity. Doing the knowledge is the only way to know. This is true learning.

We are not a mind and a body.

We are somebody.

We somehow think children are better at language learning than adults. But an adult brain is so much better than a kid's brain so if something changes is the adult body.

We also think language is like an instinct. But it has been proven that people growing without other humans don't develop language ability.

A language is a tool, a social tool. To use a language one has to interact with others in a certain context. Languages are lived, not purely spoken.

Luck can favour you too!

How much have we all wished that we were lucky like so-and-so?!?

Its true that life isn't a level playing field as there will always be someone more luckier than you in something (unfair advantage). 

However, the great news is we could create our own luck too, some of the ways are

  1. Take more action
  2. Do more things
  3. Meet more people
  4. Go to more events
  5. Produce things & publish them
  6. Blog about your work/startup
  7. Get more feedback
  8. Put stuff out in the world

The idea is the more we expose ourselves to opportunities, the more luck comes our way!
