The process of mainstream ‘education’ swamps the left side of the brain with the system’s version of reality by communicating ‘logical’ and ‘rational’ information based on ‘observable evidence’.
Students are then told to retain this information, and revise it thoroughly, before taking something called an ‘exam’ in which they must repeat to the system what the system has told them to believe.
If they do this really well they pass their exams and ‘progress’. Well done, Johnny, well done Jane, good marks. If they go on doing this really well they might even go to university and get a degree to mark their degree of programming. How programmed are you? I’ve got a first class degree. Oh, first class programming, well done you.
A study by Kyung Hee Kim, professor of education for the College of William and Mary in Virginia, focused on the creativity of school age children between kindergarten and 12th grade using the measurement known as the Torrance tests of creative thinking.
He found a ‘massive’ decline of creativity the longer the students progressed through the school system as ‘children have become less emotionally expressive, less energetic, less talkative and verbally expressive, less humorous, less imaginative, less unconventional, less lively and passionate, less perceptive, less apt to connect seemingly irrelevant things, less synthesizing, and less likely to see things from a different angle.’
These are all traits of the expansive, maverick, dot-connecting right hemisphere of the brain which the education (programming) system suppresses to allow the left-brain to dominate perception and collectively create a left-brain society.
Young people all over the world stress and worry waiting for their exam results desperately hoping that they have successfully told the system what it has told them to believe. I left school aged 15 (couldn’t wait) to play professional football and never took a major exam in my life. Phew, what an escape.
Exam passes and degrees allow you to choose a specialisation of science, medicine, academia, law or even politics and media which are dominated by degree-passers. Would-be scientists, doctors, academics and the like then take more exams and tell their speciality institutions what they have been told to believe, and if they do this very well they become a ‘scientist’, doctor, lawyer or professor of something or other and they may even be so successful that they go on to run those institutions. How lovely, except for one little problem.
This ‘rational logic’ based on ‘observable evidence’ is illusion. What is considered ‘rational’ is merely a point of observation dictated by your sense of what is real. If that sense of reality is bloody nonsense to start with then so will be your ‘rationality’ and the same with what is perceived to be ‘logical’.
This is in keeping with the so-called ‘Icke’s Law’, discovered by a man called David Icke after long experience and much observation, which contends that bollocks begets bollocks. It is, apparently, closely associated with the law of cause and effect.
Bollocks begets bollocks and that is why human society is drowning in bollocks.
