It seems that our generation is plagued by a general lack of knowledge thus we are easily manipulated.
The general lack of knowledge is caused by the lack of proper education.
But proper education is not about “uploading” data into our brains, memory as we usually think.
Proper education means enabling our brain - as if it was a modem - to connect us to the real source of true knowledge.
By default, we are born with an inherently egocentric, subjective consciousness, perception of reality. In other words, we are locked into a subjective, introverted black box, cave, from which we try to make sense of a reality we don’t actually know, have contact with.
Into this black box, introverted, personal cave we try to draw in, accumulate as much data, information as we can consume, but it doesn’t really help us as both the data we obtain and how we compute it is distorted, filtered, so the picture of reality we build is false.
The education we need is one that can help us learn how to exit our inherently egocentric, subjective boxes, caves and acquire the ability to connect to Nature’s perfect system, its infinite database as selfless, objective observers.
This unfolds by learning how to perceive reality through the desires, thoughts, and viewpoints of others in special, purposeful, methodical environments.
Then we can access true knowledge, the true blueprints of reality in Nature which can also make us truly “wise”, knowledgeable.
