Why School Sucks and You Should Drop Out
Have you ever felt that what you do on a daily basis has little significance? This is no coincidence. Although we cannot see them in our world, there exist a number of different planes. A plane is a type of dimension with certain rules character to it's existence. To understand the idea of a plane, you simply need to look to midgets or really tall people and the difficulties they face.
In geometry class when I was fifteen, my teacher asked why there can't theoretically be giants like in the movies or really short people, like fairies. Nobody in the class knew why.
It was a difficult concept for us fifteen year olds to grasp. Pythageorm's theorem states that in any right triangle the sides a2+b2=c2. Because of this law, the mass of an object grows exponentially when the length of it's sides are increased. Even though a six foot person is only twice as tall as a 3 foot person, their mass would typically be three times as much. As such, twelve foot tall people cannot exist because their blood can't properly circulate nor would they be able to walk.
Although midgets live in our world, they live under different rules to their physical existence. Gravity is different for them. They can do back flips and gymnastics easier. Gymnasts in the Olympics average around 5 feet tall. They're less prone to back or neck pain, and their blood circulates easier.
Midgets aren't really on a different plane though. Shrink it down to the size of bacteria, and it's a different plane. The physical properties of a bacteria's world are entirely different from our world.
The same is true for galaxies, planets, stars, black holes, and the universe. The objects in this world are so large that the properties of this world are entirely different from our world.
With people, there exists a non-verbal plane that affects the way we interact with others. Just as you learn to speak, write and read, it's also important to master the ways of the non-verbal plane. Some people have mastered the workings of this plane better than others.
There also exists an incredibly destructive and terrible plane. On this plane exists the Nothing. What is the Nothing exactly? Just as it's defined, it's nothing at all, a plane with absolutely nothing.
thing with planes is that the properties of one plane will affect other
Similarly, the Nothing affects everything that we do.
A Lesson in Trigonometry
I was sixteen, I started trigonometry where we started learning about
While one could rationalize the purpose of learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc, the further up the math ladder one got, the harder it became to rationalize the purpose of the lessons.
Algebra then Geometry then Trigonometry, finally there was a classroom revolt.
Why are we learning Trigonometry Ms. Suiter? What is the purpose, asked the class.
She couldn't explain it. She merely said that it was needed later for Calculus, and that it was too difficult to explain why you would need it.
A Tale of Abraham Lincoln
When Abraham Lincoln was a child, legend has it he would chop wood for a dollar a day. One day, a man from the other side of town offered 5 dollars a day to work for him.
Abe went to the man's house, and the man brought him to a pile of logs. He gave Abe an axe and said turn it around. I want you to hit the dull end of the axe against the log. Continue doing it all day. The pay is 5 times what you were making before.
Would you take the job?
one day Abe quit and went back to his old job of chopping wood for a
dollar a day. Beating the dull end of an axe against a log had no purpose.
And though the pay was more, the job with purpose was more enjoyable.
Our subconscious is structured so that it rewards us for doing things useful. It works best when purpose is kept simple, is neither too far into the future, nor complicated with "extra kinks."
Chopping Wood > Purpose > Firewood to cook meals.
Dear Hunting > Purpose > Food
> Purpose > Needed later for Calculus > Calculus is needed
to passCollege > People with a college degree earn more over their
lifetimes than people without college degrees.
School and B.S. Theory
A huge problem with the English language, is that there is no politically correct word for the term bullshit.
Suppose you have a group of people. If you enact a rule, it will benefit 70% of the people in the group. However, it will harm 30% of them. Accordingly, you have a net benefit of 40%, so overall it is better if the rule is enacted.
An example could be, not allowing dogs on the beach without a leash. Maybe your dog is extremely talented and even made it on David Letterman's stupid pet tricks. Overall however, it's deemed a net benefit because there are other dogs that misbehave. You however, ended up on the loosing side of the rule, or shall we say, the B.S. side.
live in a society with law and order, where government makes the rules.
It is no coincidence then, that the most B.S. can be found in government.
It makes the rules that harm the remaining 30%.
fact, you may find yourself falling on the B.S. side more often than
Someone should be asking, how can we try to eliminate as much B.S. as possible from our schools and government to minimize the damage done to the 30%? The fact that there is no politically correct term for bullshit makes this difficult.
B.S. Degree as a "Fitness Indicator."
Some people do not tolerate B.S. well, nor do they tolerate purposes with many "kinks" in the chain before you find the benefit.
Employers place high value on college degrees when hiring. One of the reasons, is that in any given job, there will be a certain amount of B.S. to tolerate. People with college degrees can tolerate higher levels of B.S. than people without degrees. Therefore, they are likely to function better on the job. This is why a degree could be likened to a "fitness indicator."
While they may tell you a B.S degree stands for Bachelor of Science, now that you've read my article, you know what it really stands for.
The problem with fitness indicators, is that they come at a very high price. To go through 4-5 years of B.S. just to show employers that you can tolerate it well. (Granted, a degree does have many other benefits, but a "fitness indicator" is a very important if not primary function of a degree.)
What Was I Getting At?
the B.S. can accumulate to highly damaging levels, to the point that,
This accumulation brings our minds closer to the plane of the Nothing.
