Higher Knowledge: Enriching & Enabling Factor

What factor reconciles the needs of different nations while sharing the earth’s resources in an ecologically sound manner? The balancing factor is higher knowledge or knowledge that is spiritual in nature and tied to our collective higher destiny. It must be added to the mix and used with our other capacities to find solutions. Higher knowledge will not replace common sense, experience, hard work or economic imperative. That is not its function. It is an added capacity which integrates and works alongside others.

These Seattle Teachers Boycotted Standardized Testing—and Sparked a Nationwide Movement

Life felt eerie for teachers at Seattle’s Garfield High in the days following their unanimous declaration of rebellion last winter against standardized testing. Their historic press conference, held on a Thursday, had captured the attention of national TV and print media. But by midday Monday, they still hadn’t heard a word from their own school district’s leadership. Then an email from Superintendent José Banda hit their in-boxes. Compared with a starker threat issued a week later, with warnings of 10-day unpaid suspensions, this note was softly worded. But its message was clear: a teacher boycott of the district’s most-hated test—the MAP, short for Measures of Academic Progress—was intolerable. Jittery teachers had little time to digest the implications before the lunch bell sounded, accompanied by an announcement over the intercom: a Florida teacher had ordered them a stack of hot pizzas, as a gesture of solidarity…

An Honest, Hilarious Spoof of Getting a Traditional College Education

The Banking Joke About to Fall Flat

The Banking Joke About to Fall Flat

Money is simply a method of exchange, so instead of bartering for goods as was the practice centuries ago, we used to exchange money for them. Today there is no ‘money’ actually in circulation and this makes it so clear that ‘money’ is nothing but the transmutation of energy.
