Open Letter to Betsy Devos

child_with_compute

When I was 16 I started studying Mnemonics. I read every book I could find on the subject and I practiced them until I had a migraine. I dreamed about one day revolutionizing education by creating memory pegs that make things harder to forget than to remember. More recently I studied every logical fallacy and cognitive bias and read everything I could on cognitive psychology. I studied the newest psychological sciences.

I created Shared State Law of Communication. To give you an example that Letter “A” means the same to me as it does to you because we shared similar states of education. The word cat means the same to me as it does to you because we shared the same “States”. It creates a medium through which we can communicate and relate to one another. Because of these Shared States we can communicate ideas to one another.

I think that we should have the best teachers with the best results on teaching certain subjects collaborate and create videos that teach the subject that they specialize in. I think these videos should be online in a single website. I think they should be made available to everybody regardless of age. I think that Charter Schools should be allowed to use them. I think that Home Schooled should be allowed to use them. I think that States should have the right to determine if their schools will participate and to what degree they will participate. If the states refuse to participate, I think parents and charter schools should have the Authority to over ride the State. I think that people should be able to determine if they want their scores to be public or not.

This would allow children to compete with each other on the National Level. It would prevent Older Illegal Immigrants from having to be in the same classroom with people much younger than themselves. It would prevent teachers from indoctrinating children and it would allow a transparency into exactly what our children are being taught.

I downloaded entire semesters of college classes from iTunes University. You would be amazed what I learned from the Audio alone. Some children actually like to learn and they have a learning fetish. These children will seek each other out and compete with each other to their Mutual Benefit. Why aren’t we BENCHMARKING Best Practices in Teaching??? Ask Donald what that word means in Business Philosophy.

Two teachers can teach the exact same subject matter but one of the teachers can be turning children off with their attitude. One teacher can be Telegraphing to children that the subject matter is boring or uninteresting through the tone of their voice or their body language. The other teacher communicates that the subject matter is interesting and fun.

Oh, and one more thing. Every school should teach civics and you should coordinate with Professor Richard Dreyfuss on the best way to go about that. I am also of the opinion that children should be exposed to elements of Logic in Rational Debate and Psychology at much younger ages. If children knew how to recognize irrational behavior they would grow up making better choices in their relationships and knowing how to recognize irrational behavior. I think that principles of using the Abacus should be taught at a young age. The reason for this is that China produced more math geniuses per capita by far than most other Nations. It is said that when people grow up using the Abacus they can visualize it in their heads and work out complex mathematical formula without the help of calculators.

Pythagorus Part 1

pythagorus

So, I just finished reading Pythagorus his life, teachings, and influence and I am prepared to respond to the book and give my input on the conversation of who Pythagoras was. The book confirms my suspicion and research that Pythagorus did indeed bring the Guru tradition to the West in it’s un-corrupted form and did indeed give birth to what would become the freemasons and Rosicrucians.  The book refers to Pythagorus as a Sage, an Augur, a Guru, and a Shaman.  It mentions that he had the Siddha of not only remembering his past lives but those of others.


In Hinduism, a siddha is “one who is accomplished”. It refers to perfected masters who have achieved a high degree of physical as well as spiritual perfection or enlightenment. Siddha may also refer to one who has attained a siddhi, paranormal capabilities.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siddha


The Siddhis are perfections after having made progress on the path of soul perfection one develops super-human abilities.

Many people have noticed a similar stylistic typography between him and Jesus, which confirms for me my theory that Jesus was one of the last great High Initiates of the Pythagorean math cults.  He would have had to know Geometry in order to be a Carpenter and he references the Cornerstone, a metaphor still used by Freemasons to this day.  He also uses an Egyptian metaphor for the sheep and the goats.

Similar to Pythagoras who is greeted by name from a river Jesus also has the parapsychological phenomena of being hailed by a voice out of heaven.


16As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”  Matthew 3:


Bilocation

Like many mystical figures throughout history Pythagorus appeared to have the ability, like the resurrected Jesus and the comte de saint germain the ability to appear in more than one place at the same time.

MNEMONICS

A mnemonic (RpE: /nəˈmɒnɨk/,[1]AmE: /nɛˈmɑːnɪk/ the first “m” is silent), or mnemonic device, is any learning technique that aids information retention. Mnemonics aim to translate information into a form that the brain can retain better than its original form. Even the process of merely learning this conversion might already aid in the transfer of information to long-term memory. Commonly encountered mnemonics are often used for lists and in auditory form, such as short poems, acronyms, or memorable phrases, but mnemonics can also be used for other types of information and in visual or kinesthetic forms. Their use is based on the observation that the human mind more easily remembers spatial, personal, surprising, physical, sexual, humorous, or otherwise “relatable” information, rather than more abstract or impersonal forms of information.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mnemonic

It is said that Pythagorus could remember everything. It was said of him that he had even attained a level of soul perfection, Mahatma, that he could retain his memory after his death.  They even specifically use the word Mnemonics, back then they didn’t have extrinsic memory in the form of smart devices like cell phones, computers, calculators, and even note paper was expensive.  The Pythagoreans did exercises every day to strengthen their memories.  This is curious to me because when I was 16 years of age, without any prompting from anybody, I got every book from the library I could find on Mnemonics and I would run through memory exercises every day until I had a migraine.  When I met Gurumayi Chidvilasananda of the Siddha Yoga order and she gave me shaktipat initiation she also gave me a rock that had the word, “Remember” engraved on it and she asked me, “Do you remember?”

Much like the baby Hercules and the baby Krishna, Pythagorus too was said to have been attacked by poisonous serpents which he poisoned by biting them back.  One translation of his name is “I am the Python”.

Krs-1 insists that Egyptians created modern civilization and he conflates that fact that Egypt is in Africa with black people having created modern civilization offering the justification, “Because Greeks killed philosophers constantly.”  But so did Egyptians, where are the Philosophers in Egypt now?  Plato in the Timaeus mentions that during the Hellenistic period, the Greeks were very keen on deriving important elements of their culture from the Berber’s, which are the tribes of Northern Africa that are light skinned do to intermarriage with, that’s right, you guessed it, White People.  Also the word Barbarian included the Celts.  And Pythagorus studied and incorporated also the Celtic and Iberian mysteries as well as the Mysteries of Bacchus and Orpheus.  Krishna-1 might also want to look at the revolution of the Berber saint Ibn Tumrt who killed off all of the intelligentsia and artists in Islam.  Ibn would walk through the street emptying every bag of wine and breaking every instrument.  The Muslims of that time period would have killed Krs-1 for being a heretic as would ISIS today, who wants to get rid of Mecca because they say that Muslims observing the haj are stone worshipers….

They used the writing style of Hieros Logos, which was a sacred conversation between to spiritual seekers that was a way of conveying information to those listening.  Early Greek plays also had only 2 actors, it was a revolution when they added a 3rd person on the stage.  The  vigyan bhairav tantra is a Sacred Conversation between Shiva and Shakti, as he instructs her in the 112 paths to enlightenment.

At one time Pythagorus taught out of a cave on his own island.  This is of interest because early Christians initiated people in caves.  Also recently discovered that the Cave Men 😉 with their petro-glyphs used caves because of their acoustics, falsifying the narrative that white people didn’t have music, and it is known that they used the caves much like a church, sometimes shamanicly invoking animal spirits into themselves all of which would be considered idolatry by modern Islam which forbids graven images as idolatry.  Early Christians also held their initiations in caves, portions of the zohar was written in caves, Moses Maimonides had to hide in a cave where he wrote as well.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were found preserved and hidden in a cave.  And lastly if you examine the allegory of Plato’s Cave you realize it is an initiation in, where else?  a cave… Pythian Priestesses made their predictions in a cave….

Pythagorus apparently meditated for a month before making sacrifices to Zeus in black wool  before putting up the epigram “Here lies the dead Zan the call Zeus.” The knowledge has been lost but I will tell you Zan means Meditation Master, it is related to chan and zen and is a cross over with the word Kohan or kohen.  The purpose of the black wool, according to myself, was chthonic and this confirms for me a theory that one translation of Pythagorus name was “I am death” since serpents were chthonic symbols it also confirms a belief for me that Philosophy is a death seeking because one seeks to destroy the ego in one self as well as to not be influenced by the illusion/maya of the world.

That is going to be all for the first installment of Pythagorus, thank you for tuning in.
