The flaw in the design of school. Knowledge and information without practical application is useless.

Just as one learns the language of one’s birth, one learns the customs, the traditions, the measure of values of that culture.

This means that we take on the form, as ideas, often built from past human practices, often determined by environment. This means how things were organized by what worked within a given context, as the surrounding environment over time. These actions, can be made into ritual, and practiced, to teach and to add to memory. Humans are so absorbing, we take in what we are exposed to, reflected in how we take on the language. That language is a mirror of the values of a culture, built over time, and often held onto as defining a person.  That  culture, where the starting reasons for the practices can be forgotten, because the culture comes to define itself as it’s built measure, forgetting why such and such a practice came into being. Unfortunately, within our present systemic design of placing power into the hands of a few, those few can use this- how actions as culture are formed, and how a human can absorb and take on a form through a practice of ritual without having any real direct practical experience in living applied behaviors in real physical space. Thus, a story can be memorialized as one’s belief, without any practice in effectiveness in physical practice. Then ideas about things can lead, causing an ignorance in terms of addressing changes in environment. Overall, what builds is a disconnect from reality. What is practiced within, is no longer aware of what is real and practical. 

The very design of a school mimics this. Placing children into a box, and teaching them through imagination, as memory, builds a measure/ideas/culture/tradition/ritual- as actions scripted out- that has no real practice in reality, and thus no practice in assessing and directly addressing real applied behavior with our living context as this physical world within which we interplay as adults in our lives. How can we really interplay with practical reality when our whole childhood has practiced placing information via memory, and then asked to use that memorized information to direct ourselves in a reality we have no practice with and as?  This is no different than having someone memorize the idea and pictures of playing a violin and then asking that person to go out and make a living playing the violin- based on memorized ideas. Obviously, this cannot work, and it is a mis-use of the imagination. It reveals how memorizing a set body of information without practical applied behaviors by action and design, creates a disconnect from self and practical reality.  One could say one is cognitively dissonant from reality. One could say that what is of seeming no-significant difference has grown into an elephant in the room, known as attention deficit disorders. A blue print of information that has no practice in reality- even if some of the info is valid or ‘ of a truth” -  a natural ability to process information ( because it is processing information in one way)  has separated from processing physical information surrounding the self as a child - where one learned to crawl all by one’s self- into processing a set body of information learned in separation from real applied physical behaviors in this physical reality. Thus, what may have appeared to be of no significance, perhaps a belief that the practice of using memory to learn would sort itself out eventually,  has caused a huge divide between seeing directly and being distracted by the information absorbed and moved within memory alone. A hard thing to realize over time, as those children coming from a more agricultural based society retained some practical application as their learning transitioned through generations into learning in a closed abstracted context in a school through memory. 

This makes seeing the forest through the trees difficult.  Yet, the behaviors around us reveal the story of separation. The problem is with each passing generation, the children become more dis-oriented, and the past generations as the teachers,  are products of this slow separation from real practice, applying one’s self in real time, which is the space here- this place where one gets things done. Thus, one could say, it is like a train of ideas and beliefs, and set body of values, like a language in itself, of values is something as a ‘ song’ or form, or rhythm running like a train in one’s mind, as memorized and practiced theory that then takes a child, who is on the ground, lives applying itself physically to learn to crawl, and is suddenly grabbed and pulled onto that ‘ train of and as a measure of information in the imagination’ - and asked to suddenly acclimate to that inner ‘ math.’ 

The children can see this happening, some resist, some accept, some try again and again to speak this difference, and eventually give up. That train of info, is raging not even seeing the devastation it creates in relation to this earth, this physical place where all the traditions and rituals were created, and then made larger than the practical, where one applies one’s self.  This is what is meant by ‘ as within so without, as above so below.”  This is why personal relationships are so difficult- they are differing ‘ cults’/cultures of measure, memorized and stagnant from applied behaviors in space, here.  This is why aging is really the consequence of losing all spatial ability in practical physical reality, that place where one applies one’s self to get things done. The math of the problem is right in front of us everywhere and every day. It is in that frustrated child acting our in school.  It is visible in a person who believes they have no ability to play a musical instrument. Such a statement reveals the level of disconnect from applying self to see directly the space of here, as the space of the info in the mind, embedded as directives in the body, as the hard drive of each of us,  that is not of a culture, as a set of directives, or values, that lend a direct seeing to what effective applied actions, as behaviors, allow connection and effective practice in getting things done in this physical reality. This overall, a very very simple thing when one takes the time to sort this out. Not something that is easy if the train of memorized ideas has been the practice, because it is racing over space, and very disconnected from reality. This is in itself a bully towards the children. We can no longer accept this, as that seemingly no significant difference from the starting point, has become an elephant in the room. The way out is to rebuild as words, one at a time, to reframe, or redefine each word into direct applied actions in practical reality,  and , this must be done through a focus directed out of that set body of running information, narrowing the focus of the mind/child away from that running commentary/song/math/culture/memorized-information and redirected as reconstructed into seeing practical reality directly. This means becoming a living word. 

The simple is always right in from of us. The degree to which one can realize the simple, is the degree to which one is running in a set body of information as the mind.  How great is the divide for you? What if one could rebuild this, to acclimate back into reality, into practical applied behaviors that ground one in realizing one can learn to play an instrument and that this is actually natural for a human being to do, as a human being has fingers and arms and legs and lungs that a human being can learn to direct and move, to master and apply just as one learned to crawl before a set body of information was memorized  and embedded as the directive information in one’s hard drive as the physical body? Could one say that that inflammation in one’s knees is mis-information causing problems, because the information is not what gives direction in an applied behavior, as a living action, that allows one to sense the movement of a finger on a sting? I mean this is something each can do, because that digit as that finger exists and can move. Can one see how disconnected from being a master of self, as one’s physical self, is in this context?  Can one see how big the elephant in the room has become as the information one accepted and allowed to direct one and define one within this. 

What if you had, from the beginning,  time and space to become a master of yourself as who and what you are as a physical human? Would that not be awesome! Is this not what the children cry for as they resist being in school?  One must forgive the shame of not realizing this, because that child, that is you in another life, deserves to be able to learn to master itself as what it is as a living being, to know that it can learn to play any instrument of its choice, as this is what we all want. Humans are happy when they are focused and  doing. The magic is in the doing. Doing involves full physical engagement. Doing means being present in the practical, as it is practical actions that build a house, or apply that finger to the string to make the sound.  Doing this in the imagination only,  creates a huge divide from reality, from real doing.  And this is why music builds minds more able to process information, it is not the music so much as it is the means; playing an instrument demands, by design, full engagement of all the sense- ability, where the smallest of actions are the most important because they define the outcome.

There is a reason we start with the abc’s and end with the SAT’s. The more words we know, effectively, the more words that are grounded in a direct physical relationships to living reality, the greater the ability to process information to the extent one can do, one can apply one’s self effectively. It is simple. What is difficult and complicated is the extent that train of information is running in one’s mind that has no real ‘ doing’ connection to the practical. It reveals the extent of one’s unhappiness, one’s inability to be haptic, to move as the smallest of means towards getting things done. 

We can use technology to help ourselves and the children. We can use technology to focus the child out of a limited and running chain of information, and redirect them to seeing this place where we plan it and get things done, this space called physical earth, and rebuild. It is the practice of the small, building into a blue print of being here, clearly, a direct seeing relationship to the practical that small movement that leads to effective actions. This would naturally create a responsive child, a capable child, a child who realizes they can learn to play that instrument and enjoy utilizing all of themselves, and doing so at a tempo had from the beginning before a memory of mis-information separated the child from applying them-self in behaviors that were of a successful doing in real time. Remember that joyful smile a small child has, that echoing laughter so deep and contagious- an echo of one’s real self. Imagine that never being lost? What if you could restore that for yourself, within and as having a tool to help you rebuild a culture, as words, within that was in direct alignment with real living applied behaviors? All those thoughts, of the past running in the mind, they are telling of where one lost one’s self relationship to real time and space. They are so consuming that doing the smallest of things appears to be more complicated over time, as that mis-information, over time, resonates because it will be answered to, no matter what, to such a degree that doing the smallest of things becomes difficult. This is the illusion, this is the veil spoken of, this is the persona of one’s separation from that original state of happiness that expressed itself in that deep and total laughter and smile a child has before being pulled onto a train running over the landscape of practical physical reality- that place where one has the ability to place one’s finger on a string and press that string to self generate a sound, in full physical engagement. And yes, it is that simple.

The tool to reorder the mind from dis-connection to being grounded and present, able to do a living math, is here. Let me show you, a parent, or a school, how you can self empower the child, and yourself, to become self directed, self monitoring, self able to stay the course, within retaining a direct seeing, and building a sound mind that never loses its natural ability to apply effective actions in real time, to become what is natural, a successful living human being, able to laugh as deep as a baby and smile with out any limitation.

Write me a note, the presentation is free and fun, because it is fundamental.

Intuition and the story of a child on the spectrum.

Intuition and the story of a child on the spectrum.

I am a reading specialist. My intent is to make word recognition small. Meaning, that reading, or understanding words is something all children can do. Words are a code, they are not the thing that they sound, they are a thing about a form/movement etc. 

A child exposed to several languages at a young age can learn all those languages. It would be like seeing an apple and having many different names/labels for that apple.

What must remain constant within words, grounded in universal meanings. Words must have  an equivalent in reality- the word must be a living word. The verb ‘ run’ must correlate to the movement of running. Then qualifiers can be added that describe the type of running. I mean we used to have a different name for each grouping of a specific animal, when there were more than one. Honestly, it was probably a tech, as a word is a form of technology, that brought attention to the nature of the type of animal the word used to describe a group of that specific animal reflected. This shows how much we are as humans in separation from living practices, from taking in the subtlety of the real natural world around us. We can see this in how much we lose our spatial ability as we age- and how it becomes more and more difficult to process information with age. How we are, within what we are, reveals the degree of story we exist as instead of seeing the real and natural world around us. 

In our public schools there is an idea that words must be learned in context. This statement alone sounds good and true, yet it begs the question as to what the context is! Words learned in a context, in a class room, with a set body of information ( written by whom?)  become a limited story, even if the sequences of events can be validated etc. because it is not the whole story.  One is not present in the real story, seeing the objects moving and being. It is words talking about something, thus information on a page, is not a real context. Thus, the statement that words be learned in a context has a truth, words must be learned and placed in a context- as words are never the real thing, they are a thing about a thing. Therefor, it must be noted that learning words in the context of fixed information in a school, is in itself not a real context, and as a consequence build in mis-information and biases, or polarities within the word definitions. The definitions become ideas rather than a real relationship with reality. We have compounding attention dis-orders as a consequence, built over generations reflecting how we work and the importance of  learning in living contexts. It becomes a math that is so obvious, ignoring it is allowing harm, as more and more children will suffer the consequences of such practice.  We are seeding mis-information and the fruits of these seeds are all around us.

This situation reared its head during a conversation with two parents that have children on the autistic spectrum.  It was a business meeting, thus most of the conversation was about business.  One woman was talking about how important it is to follow her intuition. Another man was talking about how difficult it is to have his child look him in the eye. The man, eventually, as his child grew older, asked the child/young man why he avoided looking people in the eye. This child said, ‘ because there is something there.’  On one side of the table I have a man saying that his son cannot look people in the eye for a reason, and that reason is that ‘ there is something there.” On the other side of the table is a woman talking about how she needs to use her intuition ( and he daughter will not look her in the eye as well) . Do the math here!

If we have an ‘ intuition’ within us, built through fixed information in separation of a real living context,  our words become filled with polarized values, or biases.  This is what the information within us becomes.  An intuition, as experience, as events, built from fixed information without the whole story, as this reality, creates an inner set body of information that becomes like a train of information that moves in separation from reality. I mean look, a child does not yet have an intuition, they place everything in their mouths to build a sense of things! to build their intuition. 

The consequence of this, that has been going on for a few generations,  builds a personality of resistances towards anything that does not fit that intuition built in a context away from what is real- and then personalities are built that have comfort zones and a greater difficulty in change, in processing information in reality. The within does not fit into the without as living reality. Our children must perform in this world, understanding the real context to move and create and reach the potential of their innate capacity to understand. They must be able to meet the age of information and process that information with ease to have a good job, as so many of the jobs from the previous industrial age are being automated, thus our real creative ability, which demands understanding how this world works must be restored. The context must be physical reality, with direct experience and each word clearly defined in relation to a living context. 

Because so many of the adults in this world are a consequence of what has been allowed, and have intuitions that are out of real living context, we can use technology to integrate the tech of and as the words, to build a sound and ordered intuition that can process information and retain a sense of reality, meaning, to not lose their inherent spatial ability- their natural sense of reality. It is similar to learning to play an instrument, as we are physical instruments of great capacity and design.

As adults, we can ask ourselves why we lose our spatial sense as we age, why it becomes harder to drive our cars, why it becomes more uncomfortable to be with people who are outside of our social circles, why it is harder to show compassion. We can ask ourselves why as we age, we tend to repeat the same stories again and again. We can ask ourselves what happened to that child that was a starting point that was so in awe of everything around it. We can ask ourselves why we lose a joy in interacting with this world. We can ask ourselves why we become isolated as we fear what is around us, and have great difficulty in moving in this reality. Why do we become humans who have difficulty moving in this reality when we by design, have the capacity to move with greater and greater ease in this reality as this is how we start out?

Our starting points must become our ending points, we owe this to ourselves and the children to come.

There are tools and help in organizing simple steps towards building a sound mind in a child. I am here to help.  Send me a note! Thank you for reading!

Thinking about playing the violin is not playing the violin. Processing Information.

I realize with greater understanding how much of our current system’s practices are backwards.
A question that has come up often in terms of knowing one’s words, is that words should be learned in context, to lend meaning in tandem with learning the word.

As usual, there is a truth to this, yet one must look at the overall design of the system. And why? Because, in simple terms what we are doing is not working. If it works for only a few, then it is not working, The consequences of many behaviors lacking the experience of a state of ease are the markers of inadequacy. When we throw up our arms and accept what is unacceptable, then the same continues. Our children must reach their real potential. This is the only choice.

Let me return to my original statement; that much of what we does is in fact backwards. It is as though the mode of an outcome of cognitive dissonance is created within moving counter to a natural presence that sees more directly this reality.

We have children develop imagination before developing discernment in reality. We tell them about things more often than showing them what we explain to them in real space. The best example of the fault of such a system is to realize, really slow down and realize that thinking, or imagining playing an instrument has nothing to do with actually playing an instrument.

Thus, our use of developing the imagination without practical application, and our system of teaching via the imagination, as memory, is the practice of memorizing a construct and then asking the child to perform. If one piece of that memory development is uncertain in any way, within this model, that child will develop insecurity, because that is what the child will experience. Especially, when asked to perform in real time, something that has been learned via building a blue print without any real physical, or multi dimensional, interaction.

One of the realizations within accelerated learning techniques IS that we retain more when more of our senses are involved. This means that using ONLY the sense of imagination is inadequate. And, it is a means that leads to control of information. 

Without real practical exposure and experience, two people memorizing information about something ONLY, could and would breed endless discussion on details, arguing for one’s ‘ idea’ memory about something that neither have actually lived and experienced directly.

Yet, if two people, for example, had mastered something in real space time, meaning actually walked the degree of awareness and self direction physically, using all senses, then they could have an abstract discussion about what they experienced and even give pointers that might open up worlds. Thus, having a conversation about something, really can only happen once real life experience has lead to a mastery within a given subject. This form of sharing, via describing one’s awareness, is not a starting point of development. It would only lead to confusion and uncertainty.  How and why we ever accepted a system where we learn through memorizing information without any real time interaction and experience can only be because on individual levels we separated from realizing that presence in real time as a starting point has great value. It is necessary before using imagination.  The best example that opens this up, is to realize, that one cannot possible think about playing a violin, memorizing how it is done and then believing that one can play this instrument. It simply cannot work. And it is the same for many things, probably all. Though, we are essentially caught within a hyper-normalization of a practice that is backwards. That this is normalized means that facing this is moving counter to one’s beliefs. And yet, as our fairy tales reveal, because of this backwards system, Humpty Dumpty behaviors exist, and those are a scattered self that is a state of having difficulty paying attention and changing with new information. The sign of someone who has mastered something, is the sign of being in control of one’s self, a sign of being able to incorporate new information in a moment- as one can not only imagine a form and movement, one can translate that into real physical action, with ease.

Another example of this is learning a new language. I had to learn  German as an adult. I was in the actual environment where this language was living around me. At first, as I accumulated a sense of the sounds, I was able to hear the variations in sound.  Then I could hear the individual words, and then I could practice the words.  This learning may have appeared to be slow, yet was it really? Or was I simply moving in a process of differentiation to the point where the natural next step was to generate words myself. At some point, as I had to do this every day, in real life action, I could hear a new word and integrate it much faster, in a way where I could use it in a shorter period of time, because I was beginning to move within a momentum of overall understanding, having accumulated enough experience and self generative practice. If I had to build this through memory, on my own, without the real life experience and practice, it would have taken a lot longer. So, why do we teach through a means, as abstracting information to learn- to build blueprints, that has the flaws of being in imagination only, that has the flaw of taking longer to learn something, that has the flaw of creating huge imaginative forms of information that cannot replace real space interaction?  Again, there is no way imagining playing the violin can replace actual real live playing of the violin. Again, how can we accept the way we are teaching children as the present system of using memory, as building understanding through imagination - that by design is SLOW?

And also, since we become what we practice, we begin to move at the processing speeds we practice in this order of learning through imagination, hence we are essentially automating a slow processing speed! And this is evident in that a person with an average degree can only read about 250 words per minute. It is understood, that a musician cannot process notes at that speed and generate real music!  A musician cannot move at the tempo in processing the actual performing with an instrument, or they would never be able to realize patterns and form and play with that form, to actually generate something that makes sense!

How could something so simple be missed to the extent that we now have a system that is backwards! And how can we continue to accept this- it is after all, a form of suppression of the real potential in a child. That potential in a child can in deed, process information in much faster ways, reaching a mastery that the present system is not able to do.

 I was working with a young woman who had been defined as a ‘ slow processor.’ We were defining a word. What I suggested is for her to read the dictionary definition as a guide more than something to memorize. I said that simply memorizing a definition is artificial and difficult, one must instead relate the word to real living. That moment, after reading the dictionary definition, when I said to define that word in real living time a big change occurred with this young woman. Whereas, processing the word was slow, reading the definition was slow, when she related that word to its equivalent in real time the answer was so immediate it even surprised me!  

Thus, the difference between processing information through memory without living, practical interaction and exposure, is very very slow- this, by design, slows down what is natural in a human being. It is natural to process information, yet that must be done in real time. The process of building through imagination is by nature slow as a starting point.  This ‘ slowness’ is in direct conflict in allowing the child to use their real potential to process what they see and hear and sense in physical real time!  Because we become what we practice, we become that slow processing- a mis-use of the imagination. Again, imagining playing the violin has no real relationship to actually playing the violin! This reality is so common sensical, that there is no reason to continue to accept any other form of learning. And this fits into a well known concept, that knowledge and information without practical application is USELESS!  What has compounded in our society are attention dis-orders, a consequence manifested over time of  the mis-use of the imagination.  It is through real physical application that one truly masters something, AND THEN one can talk about it and use abstraction to share and convey experience.  Neither is ‘ bad’ yet when unbalanced, what happens are behaviors of an imbalance. 

Also, this is why one cannot create so-called teachers that learn something via theory in a classroom, without actually mastering the discipline they teach. How can a young person, who has only learned via imagination actually teach something for real. The point is that they cannot. The consequences of this are all around us. They are the increasing processing dis-orders we have in our schools, they are the attention dis-orders we have in our schools, and they are, as one principle has said to me “ I spend all my time putting out fires.’ This state of our so-called schools, means that our schools are not a place of learning, they are instead, a place that moves a child away from their real potential.

It does not get simpler than this. Remember, playing the violin and imagining playing the violin are two completely different things.  Another indicator is the insecurity a parent may have in reality to teaching their children. If there is insecurity present, then why would a parent send their child into a system that did not teach them how to teach, or that did not teach them how to learn - enough to feel secure in doing that for their child? If we really learned how we learn, and did not fear learning, and as such, really understood the joy of learning, than we would in essence want to participate in that joy in relation to our children!

Intuition determines processing ability. What do we want for our children?

Let us look at the difference between knowledge and information and practical application and the imagination.

I can look at common core and the new math, for example, among other things.

When we memorize knowledge and information, without the opportunity for practical application, we can come to have a conceptual form, using pictures and numbers, and/or words to become a vision/entity/thing in our imaginations. 

If our focus is on this imagined form, and we use that to direct our actions, can that in-form match the living physical practice around us that is the very means and reason for learning something in the first place? Does our information fit, in other words? Can one imagine what it means to play the violin and then immediately play the violin? In this can we ever believe what we imagine before we apply what we have allowed ourselves to imagine? Does this not mean that knowledge and information must always be cross checked with practical physical application? 

In common core, the new math is simply a different way of moving the number values around. Or, a different way of deconstructing and reconstructing numerical values. Instead of 2+2 one breaks down the 2’s into a smaller value, as the parts and  then adds them together. And yes, it appears to be self evident to one that knows this, yet it cannot be said to be a ‘ bad’ because it is inherently what is the parts of a more compounded equation. One must simply know the code. 

And yes, it seems to be a busy- ness that is unnecessary to practice again and again and then to be tested on. This movement, or practice, in itself can be a means to slow down a natural ability to conceptualize. It could be construed to be a micro-management that inhibits a natural conceptual ability- especially for children sitting in a room. One must begin to look at all dimensions, because it is with dimensions that we are micro managed, slowing down an innate processing of information. Again, this is controlling the imaginative capacity, embedding practices that not only separate as that focus on this ONLY- away from practical application, but also, becomes a practice that actually stops what humans do naturally, which is to expedite the processing of information. 

Thus, this process of implementing a new way, or supposed new way of moving numerical values around, can become a device to train an imagination to move on a very controlled ‘ tread mill’ of allowed measure/value-manipulation in the imagination ONLY. Thus our attention is trained to be more in the imagination AND within a one-way processing that is a training into limited conceptual movement. It is a form of suppression of what is natural. 

The tricky thing is that the parts can all be justified and argued. Meanwhile, a momentum in processing one’s information in the imagination with practical application in reality is completely scrambled. This is how great the tools of becoming potent in understanding this life are, and yet how easily and readily a mis-use of this can cause all kinds of attention dis-orders. 

What is the main problem we have in our society? We have attention dis-orders. Because we have been doing this for a while, especially since the advent of public schooling, this attention-deficit  ( lol like our monetary debt) is growing. It is the children who suffer the most. Imagine being born into such a world?

This begs the question as to what happens within a mis-use of the imagination? If our imaginations, as what is informing that image and likeness of the information practiced, have little or no opportunity for practical application, or connection to practical physical reality, of living interaction, what can happen with that intense focus from the imagination and our connection to living practice as who and what we are? In other words, what happens when that imagination believes it ‘ knows’ something and then meets that ‘ knowing’ in practice ( from having learned it in the imagination, abstractly, only)?

Could one remember how this that is the imagination was formed? Especially after 13 years of being in a room abstracting information - as placing information in the imagination and playing with the forms within the imagination?  I mean look at this, this would be like racing in one form and suddenly moving that form into a living form outside of this inner form and expecting this to suddenly fit! How is this working for all of us?  The problem is that it is not working. If we respond with statements such as ‘ That is the way it is” we have become a complacency of fearing change that is a consequence of this same practice of which I speak!  Change, which is natural, becomes difficult within a incorrect use of our imaginations.

This requires us to look at what we begin to information our children as in their early years. What is prevalent are all the fairy tales? These tales, or maths/measure/value-system, are all about good and evil, or, a morality instead of practical real live living stories. Do we know the real story of the old woman in the woods who is usually considered ‘ evil”? Do we know anything about the overall structure and layering of the workings of the financial system of the castle? Do we learn about the agricultural practices? No, we are told stories about values of good and bad, nothing practical. Thus, we naturally learn to crawl, and walk, and then we learn a value system of good and bad. We begin our lives in the practical, and then we separate into building an imagination of value judgements, done by conditioning set bodies of information that do not tell the story of how that human being came to be considered bad. The irony is that the means to the end, as a morality of good and bad, without practical measure clarified- as how that old woman came to be who and what she is, is what informs us through memorizing the information via a story of measured and formed value judgements. This is just like that numerical value being slightly changed and practiced in the number values.  It is all a means of building an imagination in separation from living reality.  I have to ask myself if this is how the infamous ‘ boogie man under the bed’ is formed, or created.  And this begs the question as to the way and means of being able to completely manipulate others! And this begs the question as to why so many of us cannot read, or cannot process information!  And, why so many of us have a hard time communicating with one another!  the proverbial ‘ boogie man’ is our within information not fitting into this living reality!

In other words, an improper use of the imagination has us all walking around in a shadow world, in separation from living reality! We have come to believe that this informed imagination is more than what is around us! We need only investigate innovations created by some who have managed to exit this imaginative world or use it in constructive ways, to realize the extent of our separation. We need only look at the children with attention dis-orders to realize the extent of this problem.

I have found that many teachers and parents are very skilled at calling out the problem, yet cannot see the cause of the problem that is literally right in front of us, in plain sight! 

The solution.
Within teaching the violin, I always had to build from nothing via building an awareness into the structural means of playing the violin. If that structure awareness was well set, the child would begin to move with ease in relation to the structure of the violin. This happened in an exponential way one the parts began coming together. I would build an awareness of the parts, every part, not just one aspect, in a relationship with actual physical living reality practice. The change point would become obvious, because the child would begin to employ moving in all the practiced “ paint the fence” parts and begin to move in cross checking or assessing each movement because it was well known, and have the space to move into seeing the whole. This would then compel even more awareness and the ability to process this living action would suddenly begin to move at a whole other tempo. A momentum had happened, one that was of a clear inward perception of the structural means of expression as the tool as the instrument, to the point where the child could produce all by themselves in an effective way. Is this not the goal of education to realize measured  effectiveness in generating expressive movement in living reality?  Teaching through abstracting ONLY and then testing an ability to abstract  is very very limited, as the problems in our society reflect!  This is also the means of manipulation and control- which begs the question as to why that ability to learn to crawl, such a huge and great thing, must be controlled at all!? It is our very sensitivity and means of understanding.

Thus, because of an existent system embedded in consequences of a mis-use of the imagination, we need help. We can use what we have created, as our technology, to help us rebuild a stable and well ordered imagination as what humans use to communicate and inform ourselves as and with that is a ‘ thing’ about reality, and becomes our intuition. We can learn the code, as words, always relating them to a direct living measure/rule/quality/thing to build a well structured reference system as our imagination. This would remove the fear that is a product of a mis-use of the imagination, and ground our children into having the means to retain a natural ability to process the living reality around us, that living reality they naturally existed in when they learned to crawl and to walk, before the values imparted through story informed them of a measure that was not the whole story. Mastery happens within the interface of reality- just as one learns to play an instrument. 

Ask yourself what you would want for yourself. Would you want to become a person who lives as the limitation “ that is the way it is” or would you want your child to become an innovator that creates and lives in a way that improves all our lives? A child that feels secure in so doing? Would you want your child to direct the physical instrument that is themselves, beyond the crawling stage, into continuing a developing awareness of being aware of themselves and their capacity into a correct us of their imagination to create within an effective cross reference ability of this living instrument called this practical world? 

We are, even myself, a product of the mis-use of the imagination that is this present system. Yet, we can rebuild our focus, or redirect our focus and we can do this with a tool to integrate our words, by-passing a mis-informed imagination and then relating that word to this living reality, to ground our instruments as our physical bodies, back into a natural awareness of what is around us as this living reality that is as much as instrument of expression as is our physical bodies we directed into crawling and walking and talking and, unfortunately, accepting a mis-use of the imagination. 

I have been in a crowd and seen an adult autistic child-young man in their absolute frustration and mis0information, run up to an adult and violently push them down onto the ground. If you were that mis-informed child-young man/woman, would you not be so frustrated that any immediate means of expression would be better than nothing? For those who have not yet generated this mis-information to the degree of having an autistic child in relation to mis-information being passed down and accumulating within each family generation, would you want one of your children to have to live with having an autistic child? One could argue against this formation, yet dimensionally, this is what we are doing overall, and we all know it on some levels. Investigate the science of neurolinguistic programming, and realize we can rebuild ourselves at any stage of life. We cannot wait for the problem to become a part of our immediate existence ( in some ways it already is, because each town/area appears to be forming homes for the children suffering from a mis-se of the imagination into a compounded mis-information). The development and growing problem of and as these children/young adults, is costly for the society. The allowance of this development and its behaviors, are that boogie man coming to life, being what we have allowed to inform our fellow human beings. We as a collective are responsible for this. The means for each, on the ground , to become self responsible in informing the children we create. We can learn the code, as the words, to communicate a living reflection of practical reality. We can re-verse this trend of compounding attention deficits and and prevent a loss of attention, a natural ability to attend, to the living world around us. 

If your child is having problems processing information leave me a note and I can show you the means to rebuild a natural ability to process the living reality around us.

Education and the Law or Miracle of Compounding

Education and the Law or Miracle of Compounding

I had another person talk to me of and about a gifted and talented child this week.
I said to that person that the ends reveal the means. Meaning, we become what we practice as the math of our exposure and accumulative understanding, which in the present system is our opportunity in many ways. Because of this, our parents become our starting point, because the consequence of our exposure and practice as a math, as a belief system, of and as the opportunity/exposure of the child. 

In music, child proteges are usually born into musical families, they are exposed to music, a fluid math, every day of their lives. They absorb this, they imitate it, thep begin the journey of assimilating the information and have the 10,000 hours it takes to master something in the space of their environment and they become capable of that form of expression. Look at Mozart and Bach, they were essentially born into the trade of music.  Just like learning to walk, they began the process of integrating the form, the movement, the mastering of music as what was the exposure they had in relation to their environment.  Within this, our society tends to create icons of music, meaning to aggrandize a few humans who learned and mastered an instrument, yet there are many who have done this, it is not that uncommon. 

We do not hear the ones who have not been made into an icon, that very formation of one of a few becoming somewhat of a master being the ONLY one. I can say that there are people who have mastered an instrument and they perform on levels even our icons have not reached.  Creating superstars in some ways separates us from the natural process of learning, and also takes away a natural ability to sense, as that very ability that when given the space and time, masters such a thing as learning  to express with a stable tool such as a musical instrument.  

Thus, what we are exposed to and what space and time we have the opportunity to absorb and practice, as self generate, determines what we integrate and this determines how we self direct in this life. How is it that this process is not used at what it so obviously reveals? This is to say that we understand how this works. When a mistake is made, there is no place for blame, or negative impulsing of destructive criticism, because the only real direction to take is to correct as directing towards a self sustaining balance. Also, to realize that this process means giving the space to practice. 

For parents, this means that everything we do, every move we take, every word we speak is programming our children. And for adults, it means that our past need not define who and what we are here. If our parents did not understand this,  and we learned, or integrated some information that was not clear or complete in programming us to self direct in efficient ways and means, then there is only us to change this. This is the whole point of the Humpty Dumpty story. This is what it means when it is said that all the kings men, and all the kings horses could not put one back together in a way that gives self direction in awareness, only the self within one’s self can do this.  Any negative impulsing is a past of information  that was not an act of clarity, an act that lent a math that gave one a means to play, or express, or self direct with efficiency and clarity. 

When we really begin to understand this, and look around us, this understanding makes it clear that one cannot place a child in a classroom for six hours  day, for 13 years, and expect that one teacher with many students and a set body of information, learned in the abstract and moved into the concrete as knowledge and information only, will be enough to lend a clear and sudden self direction in reality.   Imagine if we did this in music? Obviously, this does not work and it is not working.

Our present form of education lacks any practical application, any real practice in living. It is to say, one imagines something and then is suddenly asked to go out and apply that information that is an imagination, and suddenly carry out that information in a multi dimensional reality/  Imagine- because, lol, imagination is not all bad!, playing the violin. Imagine learning to imagine what it means to play the violin, and then imagine having to go out into the world and perform, with masterery, just from having learned to imagine something.  Yes, this is basically what we are asking our children to do.  How is that working? Do we seem to have a compounding of attention deficits as we pass this down from generation to generation, I mean what are we ‘ seeding ‘ here? We can ask ourselves as we look around at the behaviors of others, where they are in the spectrum of the consequences of this overall form, and all the protections each has within them, because of some idea that we can be taught in a box, imagining things, without the opportunity for physical application.

We all can realize that when we physically do something, in addition to seeing and hearing and repeating and  speaking, or generating, that when all these dimensions of using our capacity are utilized, we remember things with greater ease. Instead we expect children to move from only the abstract to suddenly having some great executive function. We learn by employing all aspects of performing, it is in working with all aspects that we remember. Like learning to walk, we  have all the tools at our fingertips, and our natural ability to absorb allows us to assess in this, and begin to crawl and walk and talk.  How is it that we do not apply this to all areas of learning? I mean, this is so obvious in music. Anything we learn must be in the same way, that time and space to practice information as we learn it, is what allows us to correct what is a misunderstanding that is a normal process of learning what something is not, and what something is by nature and quality and degree.  

Getting back to the protege and the law or miracle of compounding. All of this means that a perfect practice, which is consistent and making-mistakes-is-part-pf-the-process practice becomes the practice our our self generation. We become the information that is us. Hence, the lack thereof is the product of our opportunity/exposure. Those around us in a degree of incapacity, in all its variations, and those who have some capacity, are the same ends as the ones we call ‘ gifted and talented.”  What is special is the means to the end, the magic is in the doing, the outcome is in the opportunity to do in a consistent and careful way that compounds to inform who and what we are  into effective human beings. This means that one set body of information that s taught into becoming a concrete abstraction about something in one’s mind only is an inefficient system because it lacks the dimension of real practice that allows that fine tuning inherent in self discovery, as one becoming a master of doing in reality that is of so much greater dimension that only imagination. It is easy to only do things in the imagination, one can ignore dimensions that do not fit!

And yet, because of this system, we can and must master our words. Because human beings use words to create placeholders of information..  This starts with mastering spelling, because if we do not master the notations, the notes of information that humans use,  how can we form informs of information and then have the security to use our spatial capacity and extend our awareness that is our spatial ability from within to direct in the world around us that is the without? If this inner structure is not clear, if we cannot spell correctly within, how can we spell correctly  in our ‘ withouts’ as reality? If we look around we can see that the means to the end, is so visible in the behaviors of the humans around us, and that punishment is not an act of giving space to, or opportunity to self correct. 

In other words,  incapacity is incorrect compounding of information about reality. And yet, integrating information is the miracle of life, meaning that a correct informing of a person, leads to a human being mastering life. This overall, has a sequence, we do not know something, then we realize we do not know, and then we practice which naturally is a process of mis-taking or correcting imbalances as we sense the boundaries of the qualities of something, and then this becomes integrated and we can function without placing too much of our attention on what something is because we have had the opportunity to understand that which we focus upon and can instead employ that understanding in space and time. If we do not follow through, or have the opportunity to follow through in self directive ways, we can practice an imperfect practice and create an imagination that does not fit into reality- causing all those cognitive dysfunctions we call dyslexia and ADHD, all attention dis-orders. 

This is why our thoughts become our habits ( the manifestation of our practices )  that direct our actions that end up determining our lives.  This can all be heard in the very words we speak because our words are the reflection of the math we understand, just as that musician expresses their understanding of the space and time around them in the very music, or form they express.  One cannot blame the instrument, it is what it is, and it is a gift in its stability as a physical object.  In this, it is the forms as the math as the words one wraps ones mouth around that helps one to see where one stands and where one needs to assess and correct one’s self information. Something no king, and no king’s men can do for one. Yet, this same means to an end is what is so cool because it means that everyone is special and everyone is gifted. Those who we call gifted, simply have had the generational background and/or time and space to master understanding, done in the same way we learn to crawl and to walk and to talk.  

Thus, the means to the end, is to be able to process the information within and the information without. Words are a means to organize information that in turn allows us to process information correctly. This builds confidence and self esteem which in turn lends opportunity and joy in performing, in creating, in doing what humans can do so well when given the opportunity as is evident in those who we call ‘ gifted.”  They are simply ‘ gifted with time and space and correct in-forming.  Human’s real gifts are to problem solve in ways that stewards this life around us in caring and productive ways. This is the capacity to consider all things and make choices that do not harm. This would compound into a reality where all children became the manifestation of what was unique and special about them, and thereby improving and expanding awareness for everyone.

Even the gifted ( with correct inFORMation) cannot reach their full potential where others are in lack. In reality, we can leave no one behind as this is a form of extinction of life. Placing a set body of information into our children, away from practical application in real space ( physical) and time, is causing a separation from processing reality and building a self directive capacity that expands awareness. We in essence are no longer reading reality, and this is evident , or reflected in our lack of word recognition and spelling skills.  Even a musician needs words to communicate their understanding as this is how humans interact.  This also begs the question we must ask ourselves ' Can we ever trust our intuition, or is the information that comes up within our intuition something that must always be cross referenced with reality?

The Children Can't Read Means the Children Are Not Processing Information.

I went to an educational meeting this week. I sat and listened to teachers talking about various methods they use in their practice. There are methods to narrow the focus, and there are templates to order information. There are many ways to create such activities.  One example is to read something from the perspective of being within a certain role; that of a plumber, for example.

The conversation then turned to the real problem, The children could not read, they could not process the in-formation, conveyed via a code, as words. That code being about something, because it can never be the real thing. It is always a perspective about something. 

There are numerous problems here. One of them being that children can process information, so many know what is in-formation on the media about the lives of the Hollywood Stars, or the members of sport teams. Children can take in story/information.

Within this, there is obviously a separation from the in-formation conveyed in a school and what is absorbed outside of school.

Let us look at ourselves. Have you ever read something and realized that you did not take in a single word you just read? Have you ever been talking with your best friend and realized that you had not heard a single thing your friend has said? And, did you admit to your friend that you did not hear a single word they said, because you believed it would hurt their feelings if you said you had not heard a word they said? Did you then want to leave, to go somewhere else, because you did not want them to know that you had not heard what they had said? Is this not a form of skimming information, as in not being present, as in, if you have a look, that you went into your imagination because some word or some manner triggered a past event known as a memory- a moment in time where an action/movement/experience took place as how you reacted or expressed yourself?  Within this, a mannerism  is another form of words, as we realize our friends have personalities - which is likes and dislikes automated into the body, just as a perfect practice automates the ability to play an instrument, for example. We have emotional polarities of past events we have not cleared in practical actions. What happens is an associative mind set, that distracts us from a natural ability to focus and conceptualize what is in the present. 

When we realize we have not processed information, be it in the classroom, or while reading a book, or listening to a friend, we are in effect not present. Where have we gone? If we read new information, that has no living context, in relation to our experiences, then we have a hard time relating to that information.  If we do not understand this, it can have an outcome of a negative impulse, meaning we become an end game as a self definition of incapacity- when this is what was lived, yet we define ourselves as the ending point that lacks follow through.  We are in essence out of balance within ourselves. This makes processing information more difficult.

If we use imagination of our past, -because this can only be what the imagination is, a blueprint of our experiences - to analyze new information ( be it something in class, or a friend speaking)  we employ words - because this is the units of expression men use - and that information does not fit into our experience/imagination/blueprint, we must deconstruct and reconstruct our understanding. This ability is a natural ability, yet it can become stagnant. Our natural ability to take in form can become stagnant when we repeat a limited ideological system, what some can call a belief system, or a traditional value system. When we are caught in this, we have automated a measure of information. We have in essence mis-used the imagination. Instead of realizing the imagination for what it is, we have come to believe that our measure of ideas, beliefs and opinions are of greater value than that from which this memory was built, the world around us and our experiences within that world.. 

Have we come to believe that our in-form/experience-  information was more than what we are? We have forgotten that our likes and our dislikes are based on our past experience. We are in moving  pictures with a ‘ music’ or polarized attached value just like the music as drama added to story in television - these are a mindfulness of  memories and not what is actual, these are not what is living as what is all around us- be it a physical thing, or information conveyed through words, spoken and written, or imagery as media and video games. When we are caught in this, having not realized how this all works, we lose a sense of space, and begin to have more difficulty taking in new information, we have lost control of who and what we are, we have become limited. 

Our in-formation has been accepted as being larger than reality.  We begin to project our state of being onto reality. We then separate from reality and begin to make mistakes about life, moving into protection and defense of what we have conceptually accepted and allowed. When this is not understood, we stagnate an innate ability to process information. Our words are no longer the measure of their real value and instead trigger what values we define ourselves as. The consequence is a weakened ability to process new information. This leads to a consequence of an inability to communicate effectively instead of a natural ability to move ourselves in reality with skill and constancy. Our relationships suffer because of this too. 

We find ourselves outside of being present if we do not catch this, and when we do, we fear speaking up about it. And, most of the time, we do not sort out that past triggered by words/mannerisms/pictures/music etc- these associations to what we have accepted as beliefs. Overall, unless we realize this, and unless we remain present, and have the means/will to sort this out, we continue to do the same, and end up compounding this inner experience to the point where we prefer to be with those who have a similar inner blueprint, and/or we seek an escape from this tension/resistance, through drugs and alcohol. These are but a couple of coping mechanisms we employ. 

The research in education makes it clear that the more words a person effectively knows, the greater their processing of information ability. Meaning, the greater their degree of effectiveness in getting a job, in remaining in school etc. This is also why so many parents send their children into private schools, because they understand how absorbent a child is, and how being around other children who are more able to process information, will have an effect on their child. 

If one has developed/practiced a habit of hiding a lack of being able to process information, in any form, then this becomes what is practiced and will continue and compound until a movement is taken to realize how this works and to practice processing information- as the words and the pictures and the mannerisms that are signifiers of likes and dislikes based on how this works. A mannerism that resists, or appears as a holding back, or sudden reaction of rejection, or the sudden appearance of physical tension in the body, is an indication of accepted and allowed information in a person. These mannerisms are in essence, information, they are value judgements that have been practiced often, they are an incorrect use of the imagination, and they stagnate a natural ability to process information. This is called a veil by some.

The real problem is that we all know this. We use this when we scan a crowd and look for mannerisms that are similar to our own. We do this as mothers, when we enter a group of children and mothers, we scan to find a match, because we have not realized that we are processing information. That information we believe to be what is most effective, yet, it is more than likely what we are comfortable with, because we do not realize that we have come to believe that our ‘ inner-formation as information has more value than practical living reality. Our beliefs, opinions and ideas, is just this, our past experiences. If made more than reality this renders ourselves no longer being present in how this all works overall.

Our teachers in our schools do not understand how this works. When they meet and talk about many ways of narrowing the focus, and or mapping out information to take it apart, the one thing that is not matched to all the research that makes it clear what is the means to effective information processing is that the children must know the words. One cannot process information unless one knows the words - even if a person can understand something, if they cannot express it in words, they have a hard time communicating with others, and moving in society with ease. Words are the building blocks of a stable and solid foundation. In so many ways, we are word processors. If we have emotional viruses, as polarized ideas, as value judgements, we create an inner world that becomes an elephant in the room, as our within, and this elephant takes over our focus. The consequence is a separation from using our natural conceptual ability to process reality, meaning to process the words of another, and the practical steps necessary to complete immediate tasks in daily life.  When a sense of difficulty is attached to doing our daily actions, understand that one has developed an associative ‘ elephant’ of information within that is of value judgments and not a presence directly sensing reality. This entity of information slows down one’s concept of reality, living in this reality becomes more difficult.  One is, not processing information and is caught in a web of one’s own acceptance and allowance. 

When I did my student teaching, the one thing that was the hardest thing to teach, was vocabulary.  This means that it is understood that the hardest thing to teach is knowing the words. Instead, what is taught is chunks of information as ideas, information that is bumping up against other ‘ information’ that does not fit. The child is unable to compute in relation to their information and reality. They end up zoning out, just as that experience of not being able to process a text, or hear one’s friend’s words. Imagine this experience being compounded? Thus, one can create  many methods of ‘ narrowing the focus’ or forms to order information, yet, if the starting point is not having clear and living definitions to words, as the smallest units of how we form our information, and one does not have the ability to practice this, as a perfect practice to inform the physical body- which some call ‘ ownership’ then in effect what happens is similar to a group of bubbles of information bumping up against one another. Thus, as the teachers complain that the children cannot read, they are in effect not seeing the consequence of a mis-use of imagination, as information, as that personality of likes and dislikes automated and focused upon as being more real than reality. Also, what information is impulsed in school, often has no real practical purpose as it is a general scaffold of information - a separation from real living in detail in itself. 

Within this information age, where we have information at our finger tips, twenty four hours a day, our children are therefor, informing themselves as what they are exposed to. If they do not have a well ordered memory, which words are a cool technology/tool to be used as, then they are going to get caught in limited information which is mis-information even when some parts are not to be rejected because they are essentially good.  This limited inform, causes insecurity - a consequence of mistakes based on using that limited information to direct their actions; actions that are based on that information only, without using that innate ability to process space and time, within and without seeing and referencing in all their interactions in their daily living. 

If our children do not know their words, if their words trigger emotional polarities based on not understanding how this works,  or, not standing up within how this works,  then that skimming event happens where we do not take in the information, or that resistance and consequence ( as habits practiced become automated)  of self judgement of not being good enough in school, turning into a personality of likes and dislikes, instead of making choices based on what would lead to effectively processing information with  practical discernment and living a productive and effective life. 

We can come up with ideological techniques, such as “ keeping tasks within arms reach” and believe in the promise of such new concepts, that are really regurgitated methods, and not see the forest through the trees. We are, when we get excited about a supposedly ‘ new’ method, falling into a hope which is an emotional polarity, because we have defined ourselves as teachers, as a caregiver personality, missing the whole way in which this all works. We have to give up our own self value judgements and ground ourselves back into the practice of real living, where humans use words, a technology to order the practical as a means to focus ourselves with presence in the practical actions we need to understand and realize  effective and productive lives. 

If one does not know the notes/words, no instrument of generation , such as a template or device to narrow the focus, or ‘ idea’ such as keeping things small ONLY, is going to be what sorts out the emotional polarities that are a consequence of a lack of understanding how this all works. In such instances, where prevention is the best cure, the student must rebuild and understand that they must know the words, the vocabulary, as this is/are the ‘ notes’ that fill the graph that enables the child to form the tune/information, to then assess within and in real living space as the world in which that child comes to be an adult. Our imagination must be realized as what it is, and reality around us, must become what we reference. A well ordered blueprint of information allows a child to retain a natural ability to assess the world around them and their experiences at the same time. This is a retention of a natural spatial ability. Spatial ability is lost, if personality ( personification of ideas as value judgements)  becomes larger than life.

As adults, we can realize how we are caught in this web of cognitive dissonance, this separation from processing information, in media, in books, as the words and stories of our friends. We adults can realize our separation from processing in ways that allows us to remain present through a lack of presence. When it becomes more difficult to drive a car as we age, or it becomes more difficult to read information outside of a comfort zone, or it becomes harder to sit in a school meeting, or it becomes harder to finish a task, or read that newspaper article all the way to the end, or realize how difficult it can be to shift without becoming annoyed at sudden events that happen in our daily lives. We can see where that negative impulsing as a belief appears so real, we take what someone has said personally as though it is a threat to who we are, losing all spatial ability to process in ways that lead directly to problem solving.  

We have become the behaviors of separation from the practice of living..  Our words have become polarized and trigger past events that exist because they moved in self interest instead of what considered the real world around us.  In other words, the information we have defined ourselves as does not fit into being present and practical.  Instead of looking at the real value/measure/math of each word, we follow ideas that appear to be full of promise, yet lack a direct seeing into the small details that build the whole. We must be able to process words with ease, to realize patterns, and conceptualize with greater clarity, and remain present in the reality in which we live. The joy of this is that when we know our words, effectively, we retain a greater degree of spatial ability because we have developed a self trust in our relationship to being present in this reality. After all, this is where we live our lives.  The research in education substantiates this realization. 

Thus, the ability to process the code, as words, is the greatest gift we can give our children. This has the value of building a sound and stable character. Imagine if you had really known your words, where each unit of measure was clear, no longer triggering the emotional reactions due to a lack of understanding how this all works? What would your communication skills be? How would your relationships function? Would you have a greater ability to see both the forest and the trees at the same time? Meaning, to see the state of being as information within, and where that state of being, a measure, was disconnected from the living reality around us? Would you be more of a master of yourself? Would your focus improve to such a degree that you seldom missed what was conveyed in words around you, or self realize when something was new and needed more investigation without fearing to speak up and say this?  Do you have an effective vocabulary? 

We are the words we effectively know.

What is the proper use of the imagination!

What is a proper use of the imagination?

I watched a YouTube videos where a child takes a  rubric's cube and spins the cube in their hand without solving the puzzle, meaning they turn the cube, mapping out the moves necessary to solve the puzzle. They are then blindfolded and they manipulate the cube into solution- this being each side a solid color.

This is more of a proper use of the imagination. To build a blueprint and then move as it, so to speak.  This is building an image of reality within, which is all the imagination really is. 

Within this, we also can see as our children grow, how much they begin to look just like us. They absorb what we the adults are. Unless we as adults, perfect our abilities, or realize we are not enough, our children become us. And/or we send our children into a box/room for 12 to 13 years , where they ostensibly learn to use this imagination only to assess and investigate forms, as information They also, have little practice extending this sense that builds in the imagination, into physical form and function in physical reality.  We can understand this, because there are people in this world who can do this, yet have not developed language and communication skills. As a consequence, they are often shut out, as they do not have the means to communicate.

Another example is a carpenter, who after years of measuring, no longer needs a ruler, as they have perfected their ability to sense distance and space with their presence. They can then HOLD that measure, in their imagination and cut out the exact measure free of tools, such as the ruler, as I said. Remember, they learned this from physical reality! Also, a violinist plays the measure, as distance, from one tone to another, and soon no longer needs a marker to direct them, they sense the space. They can also begin to sense the space of tones, HOLD them, and then move accordingly, even adjust as they play. Thus, this is being present within space and time, within and without.

This begs the question as to why we send our children into a public school to develop a one-sided use of the imagination? Do we not already have problems with employers complaining that our children have no practical skills? Do we not have problems as we age with driving? Do we not say as we age that we are getting old and therefor just accept that we no longer can sense space as reality around us? Is this not a consequence of a mis-use of imagination? Can we not see that when it was said that we needed to bring our ‘ heaven’s down to earth’ that is was a literal statement! There is no mumbo - jumbo to this statement, it is a practical statement. Perhaps this is why it was placed in a religious context, to separate what was hidden in plain sight.

What would a mis-use of imagination create over generations? Would it create attention deficit dis-orders? Would our children begin to have varying degrees of difficulty processing information and practical application? Do we not see that this is what has happened? Would the behaviors of such mis-use be emotional reactions, ones that express fear and limitations believed to be what is real?  After all, can we not all admit that when we do not know something well enough we become fear full, that loopy feeling of not being clear, that that we hide through projecting limitations onto others, to distract from our own inner chaos.  The act of blame is not an act of correction. If we correct ourselves once, we can do it again, and accumulate our actions, building a momentum that develops self trust and self esteem. At present we have accumulated protection and defense mechanisms and thoughts of doom and gloom, and they build into a momentum that ends in an emotional fire storm. This we later regret, or we become bitter and blame everything but that it is us who accepted and allowed this through an imperfect practice in relation to who and what we are as human beings.

That negative back chat, is in nature spiteful and full of blame, because it is not a practical action that moves into solution. Those who have developed communication skills and a sense of space here, with opportunity to practice in this space, are those of us that are most successful. Meaning, those of us that solve problems and come up with new ways of doing things that improve all our lives. Though, such developments do not come to fruition in a system that allows children to be placed in a box, where the existent jobs are addressing the lack to such an extent that the adults fear losing  these jobs over what would solve these problems that are growing in momentum every dayand that cause untold suffering and frustration in our children- the behaviors right there in front of us as we call them by name without realizing the starting point of the problem. 

We as men, have the capacity to sense form and function within and without. With development we can sense great detail about the physical world around us, and we can blueprint form and see it from many different angles to improve and reform, to solve and live the potential that is this within. To not live as this is a crime against life, because this is full use of the mechanism of being a man. Anything less leads to behaviors of frustration and that inevitable loss of a sense of space, where driving our cars becomes more and more difficult. Our focus as who and what we are, is askew, it is a mis-use of the very design of who and what we are. 

We have the capacity to read a thousand words per minute by the time we are 21. This would mean we could hold form within, with ease, and then develop the ability to see the whole and the parts of our perception of practical reality.  This must be developed. If we have twenty years olds that cannot do this, and have the behaviors of lack that are obvious in their limitation and inability to process practical actions or carry on a conversation with ease, using critical and creative thinking skills, that can also consider the practical, we have as adults not supported the children. As we adults are a product of a system that has mis-used the imagination, it is time to realize that sending our children to the present design of our public schools is not what is best for us, or for our children. If we wait for someone else to make the changes we are not going to create the necessary change, because it is us that must do this. If we say that we are too busy, this means that we ourselves are not being effective in the use of our imaginations. What we adults practice is what our children become.  This is how great that ability to sense and model is and does. The mis-use of this causes harm and a giving up on life, on self. We can no longer allow this.

There are tools to help rebuild a mis-use of the imagination to give the child the structural means to develop a proper use of their natural capacity. For a moment, we will need them. Technology is stable, it is never emotional. It can be used to help us. 

What would it be like to be a master of your capacity? What would it be like to never experience a loss of spatial ability within driving your car, for example? What would it be like to be able to hold something within you, or hold a sense of space around you, or hold the ideas, or blueprints of another’s experience enough to use that in effective ways, to even be grateful for it, as this is properly developed within you? What would it be worth to come home from work, have the means to pay attention to your children because you felt secure in your ability to go over problems at work later in the evening having developed a magnificent use of your imagination and your presence in sensing spatial reality? What would it be worth to be able to move numbers around in your imagination, like the child mapping out a rubric’s cube with ease. Or, to have a non-loopy and fearful sense of money, and even understanding of how the present system works in terms of monetizing labor? 

What would it be worth to become a master of your own presence in space and time in this physical life, not fearing to map out projects and complete them, enjoying every step in the process because it is fun to develop and build things? What kind of society could we have if everyone effectively used their imagination and had the spatial sense to not only imagine but also be grounded in practical applications that expanded one’s awareness and quality of life?

What would it be worth to be able to slow down and understand your partner’s perspective, and them yours, so that solutions were found that brought ease to living? What would it be worth to no longer move into fear, and imaginings of doom and gloom, justification and denial?  In effect, the doom and gloom is a product of a mis-use of the imagination. The consequence is a growing sense of loss of space and time. 

If you want to connect, leave me a note. I can show you how to help yourself and your children. Give the gift that keeps on giving.
