Theories and Fact! A primer!

Theories are theories, and only a fool would take them as fact.The only things we KNOW about nature, at this point in time are the following :

1. There is nothing that nature does that does not work! Nature works, impeccably.

2. Nature provides every living thing in it exactly what it needs to reach its potential.

3. The process of reaching that potential, namely natural growth, provides food or resources for other living things.

4. Nature produces no waste. Everything is returned to be made avilable to life processes again and again.

5. We, human beings, are of nature. We are not above nature. We are within nature.

Deductions

A. Therefore, if we are to thrive, we ought to mimic natures ways. That means that profit must be redefined as that which allows all to thrive in balance. No hoarding or denial of resources to other living beings.

B. It also means that we ought to meet childrens innate expectations and NOT impose adult projections onto children.

C. Knowing that nature works impeccably, (see above) knowing that literally millions of different organisms work seamlessly to co-create the bio-diversity of nature, it makes sense to assume or theorise about an innate knowledge building quality in all living entities. That process could be defined as a genuine, useful and location relevant wisdom, an innate wisdom of how life works.

D. Being told WHAT TO THINK would tend to get in the way of building that innate wisdom.

E. Religion and Ideology both require TELLING CHILDREN WHAT TO THINK, rather than asking children what they think. Oooooooooops. Bad move, methinks!

What do you really think?

Is what you think what partly or largely what you’ve been told, in many different ways, to think?

If so, ditch it.

Now, what do you really think?

What do you think with?

Who are you?


The three questions an adult ought to ask a child, if that adult is truely willing to be of service to the child, are as follows :

a) Who are you? - This means the adult is willing to listen to, and to hear the child, and learn the childs definition of who that child is, at that point in time.

b) What are you interested in? - This means the adult is willing to listen to, and to hear the child, and learn what that child is interested in, at that point in time.

c) How can I help you? - This means the adult is willing to listen to, and to hear the child, and learn what that child thinks or feels would be helpful to her or to him, at that point in time.

Children know who they are, they know what the think and feel, and they know what they want.

Our warlike culture is fundamentally based upon abusing these qualities and upon exploiting the children for adults purposes, be they ideological, religious, psychological or commercial. On making sure those children grow up and become happy workers!

This last paragraph is not theory - this is fact.
