Thinking Truth

There are a number of questions that come to mind when the words think or truth are a topic of discussion. At some point, in life, one wonders if the information that has been acquired is actually true. In other words, have we ever learned how to true the data that is being presented to us by people and books that we believe? In fact, can truth be acquired, or accomplished, if belief is a part of the equation that is being used to factor what is to be understood. You! That’s Right You! The one who is reading this, find a mirror and then ask your-self, have I ever known how to ask of myself those questions that are critical if I desire to think for myself. Is it important to ask yourself what thinking is or do you already assume that you know? If you are sure that you know how to think, then the question becomes, how did I learn to do what I am doing. Maybe there was a class that you attended in school somewhere. Could you have been possibly told that thinking is a natural aspect of being alive? Are there different dimensions of thinking? Have you ever looked up the word think or truth (true) in the dictionary? If so in what way did you study the word? The average person when asked how to use a dictionary, finds the word then reads the definition. Younger students, in most cases, have not been taught to distinguish context and in a great number of cases will utilize the wrong definition. In order to better comprehend words you may need to analyze the origin of the word or its original concept.
The science of the study of word origins is called etymology and very few people know anything about how this is done. Private education considers the study of word origins as an essential to the education process. This discipline must be learned if one is to develop higher thinking capabilities. If one is to understand truth and what is or is not true that one must have greater intellectual capacities than what is considered to be The Average.
Those people who have chosen to settle for an average education wait on others to find out what is true and then come and tell the truth to them. Those who choose to educate themselves to a higher dimension of understanding are, usually, stringent keepers of secrets and are the people usually in control of how the average person lives out their existence.
Extraordinary Thinkers are in the superior category, average thinkers fall into what is called the inferior. Those people who are taught to be average are programmed about what to think and how to think. Extraordinary thinkers learn how to learn so that they will understand concepts and how conception is used to create ideas. General education trains average thinkers to know almost nothing outside of what someone teaches or tells them. The ability for an original thought is never developed. Please do not argue the exception because that is an argument taught to the average so that the work to become an extraordinary person will not take place. Most people are programmed to except mediocrity as a condition of life. When the very young first engage in the process of education, they usually sense that something is wrong and they attempt at some point to rebel. By the forth and fifth grades those who are in the situation where they are forced to attend average schools have become or are becoming angry but in fact are not aware of what is actually going on in their lives relative to feeling and emotions. Everyone is, at this point, born into a world that has already been constructed. Finding the contractors and developers of the premise can be quite an obligation of time and energy. The average will not spend time in an effort to attempt to unravel the falsity that has come to be believed as the true foundation or premise. It is not that average people do not want to think or that they will not do the arduous work that is required to find truth.
The truth and fact of the matter is that they have never had the opportunity to learn how to do what needs to be done. In the beginning, since the beginning is based on words, it is an imperative that average people start the process of learning the methodologies, techniques and strategies that can aid in mental development whereas the ordinary can become the extraordinary, powerful persons, that future generations must be if they are to survive.

I know that.thinking is a task most people do not accomplish in their life time.

After thinking about this for a short moment I have decided that this is one of those times when I must tell you to wait until we convene. I will address at that time, it is important that we both keep this record so that we can get back onto this very important piece of the puzzle.

@Adisa---The answers, to your questions may not be in order. Also, if I miss anything let me know and we will continue with the discussion.

1. While learning how to say, "I do not know", one must investigate to see if the sensory factors are in working order.  What is called time is thought to be an element in what is called the fourth dimension.

As I read this these are the questions that came up for me.

What must one do to overcome the program established by the constructors and carried/maintained by those programmed to be average?  Can anything be done?

In a world where the concept of "working to earn a living" is the status quo, what are things that could and should be set in place to counter that thought and/or allow those essential to the survival of future generations the leisure to learn what needs to be done?

This is what the class for this evening will deal with. It may be wise to review this information and prepare for some real work.

This post will be for the next number of classes where our attention will be pointed.

@Adisa---For those who are engaged in "Study with Prof. Black" go to blogs on the menu and find "Thinking Truth" there should be four (4) post---Learn this (we will do this together) and it is not as simple as it appears.

 The quote from the passage,"If you are sure that you know how to think, then the question becomes, how did I learn to do what I am doing," (Black, 2009, para.1), makes me think about babies. Babies learn so much in the first hours of life such as latching on to a breast, crying, defecating, urinating, opening and closing their eyes, and  learning their mothers voice and smell ...well now that I am writing this... I remember that they do all of this while in the womb ... but how did they learn all of these things? The first years of life they learn the familiar faces, shapes (they can recognize a  Mcdonald symbol, etc, they learn to crawl, walk, run... and talk...again the question ...who taught them these things... I guess its part instinct and its part of their "god-self"... a magnificent collison occurs...creates a life and this life begins to do things with no instructions... this may not make sense to some, but this was just on my mind as I read this passage... I guess I'm trying to say that we ultimately teach ourselves . In some cases there is some facilitation, but to learn is to do, self motivate, experience, explore,  (internally and externally), imagine, dream, and to utilize all of the senses that we used at birth and the first years of life.

Many individuals will not consider themselves anything less than superior thinkers based on the notion that they've excelled at an institution of "higher learning" (college or university), not realizing that the manner in which they were "t...aught" was deceptive and persons in charge of their learning were of "average" or "lesser" abilities themselves or were the "deceivers and wizards" who didn't want them to become anything greater than Gods. Upon realizing that the system of education in this particular city was totally and at times grossly inadequate, I was stricken by "post education stress syndrome". At that point of discovery I spent long moments trying to determine if treatment or therapy was available and how would I find it. Then I was introduced by a trusted friend Mr. Al Lewis, to Dr. Clifford Black and Dictionary Class.

The ideas put forth in the preceding post from Dr. Black succinctly describes a situation that I do not want for my 'Lil Lion', who is a student in this local school system; to have this type of education to be the basis of his ability to become a "superior thinker". Therefore we both are now students, determined to transmigrate from our current situation to a position of greater cerebral capacities.

Upon introduction to Dr. Black, it was my belief, that I had a great capacity for critical and analytical thinking but upon hearing just a little about things that I "thought" I knew and understood, I suddenly realized that my education was sorely lacking in relevant and essential knowledge. I now subscribe to the theory that "I don't anything until I am able to know truly and prove that true" that which is presented or observed. I will no longer live as a stranger in a strange land and believe anything that I myself cannot "true" for myself!

Each week my attendance at Dictionary Class is an essential element in becoming a better thinker and obtaining a greater knowledge of what things are in this strange land. I am capable of learning today because my desire is not to be bunched among "average persons, thinking and communicating average thoughts". The effort is all that is necessary, even at times when I feel absolutely stupid for my lacking in what could be considered "simple things". I will not allow pride to interfere with this work, nor will I regret having waited so long to "discover" the gifts that are available for me to learn how to learn.

Thanks Dr. Black! Your note should be read and commented on by anyone who "thinks" they know the time!
