of freedom and of pleasure

July 3, 2017

Ohh, interesting, I just thought.

I thought it about this note on one of my class outlines:

Note that the module is the part of the COMET “Climatology for Forecasters” series, which includes Introduction to Statistics for Climatology.

I wish that our education system and society were set up in a way that would allow you to learn about something and do something real with that information as you go. Like, first class learn some history about the cultural interplay between natural resources and societal structure; first class, also do something intrinsically useful for a relevant real-world community, using what you learned today. It wouldn’t be such a stretch for schools to pair each lesson with an engagement program. I think it would make learning much more fun and incorporate it into more memory groups so it would stick around longer.

The main point however, is that as you went through school doing intrinsically useful things for the world, you could kind of count all that work as a job, and then: then you could go to school forever and learn everything.

Everybody wants to rule the world.


Oh yeah?
