You are born into this world and by the time you acclimatise yourself with the surroundings and the new world you are in you are offered one of the greatest gifts humanity has to offer. I am talking about the education system. For more than a decade you are being put through this process and although be it a slow, boring and mind-racking process, you are being told of its importance which consequently makes you lose sight of the real aspects of your life that you should be pondering upon at the time, such as: Who am I? What am I doing here? What purpose should I set for myself in this life and what experiences do I want to have? Instead, you have to stuff your brain with what you are being told in school and even if that was not enough, you get homework as well to distract you in the little free time you get for yourself.
Why is education so hard? Is it because people are inherently opposed to getting any education at all or is there something wrong with the education system? Albert Einstein once said “Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.” I believe we can agree that education is often a burden rather than a valuable gift.
So how does it really work? Conventional science accepts that our left brain is responsible for intellect, logic, language, seeing parts of the whole, whereas the right brain governs intuition, creativity, imagination, seeing the big picture.
What the education system does is provide left brain based information which is specifically designed to suppress your right brain and lock you into the left brain. Like that you lose sight of the large picture, you get preoccupied with trivial things such as career, ranks, titles, positions and it goes on and on, up to ethnicity, religious groups and so on and so forth. Everything gets divided and looked upon individually in a manner in which it stirs competition, it makes us turn against each other and forget that we are part of something greater than our own self. If you stop just one moment and question the things you are being taught in school and refuse to comply to its system you start getting low grades and thenceforth you are treated as the problem and ultimately you get rejected. If you however comply you receive wonderful grades and then you get to go to those high tier universities and by the time you graduate they got you where they wanted.
