Quick Thoughts: Stupidity, Inequations, Unlearning

  1. As moving up needs efforts and falling down is natural (all thanks to gravity), growing wisdom takes efforts and growing mindlessness is natural (all thanks to infinite human stupidity.)

And there’s avalanche of headless statements, arguments and propaganda, all fueled by connectedness of new world. At last, having a working gadget is cheaper and easier than having a sound, working mind !

  1. Human minds are intrinsically lazy. Who would spend energy in thorough thinking when following the herd like sheeps have served us till now?

We believe in romanticised equations of religiousness=virtuous, violent=brave, education=schooling, happiness=wealth etc. Whereas there are no equations. Key to quality life are inequations. Believing that homogeneity is essentially against everything we hold dear to humanity.

  1. Equations are to be crossed. Converted to inequations. That’s unlearning. We took centuries to realise particular race is not equal to particular quality, some gender is not superior to other, certain sexual orientation is better than other. We took centuries to convert these equations into inequations. The atrocities were carried out in the name of these equations, but I feel it mild as compared to what’s possible in todays superconnected world.

We need to master art of unlearning. Unlearning fast.

  1. Art of unlearning will be key trait of future generations. With things changing so fast, servival will be based on learning new skills continuesly. Changing the profession often, will be the necessity of tomorrow.

Hence unlearning-learning i.e. forgetting your reflexes you developed for particular task and acquiring new ones will be a challenge.

  1. Sir, these all equations are incorporated in our mind while we are growing up. If you are curious enough then you will understand that these equations are useless/incorrect or if there is a very worst situation in life,and getting out of these equations becomes a strong necessity then people will refuse to follow these equations. Generally ,It takes a critical thinking /courage to follow the truth instead of well framed equations.

Write. I would love to hear your views.
