I’m all for education if only the information would actually be obtained and be found to be useful a year or maybe two afterward. Yes, I understand knowledge even if it is later discovered to be incorrect can help build on new information gathered but maybe one can skip a page or even a book. Every day we pick up facts that are either proven wrong or absorbed from neuron who falls asleep with it. How many books has one read that now draw only a blank page? Therefore it’s not only important to learn new facts but find a way to absorb them in your real-world before they disappear forever. Here are a few ways (below) knowledge really could be power.
(1) Teach someone and some else those facts. The more one teaches the less likely those facts will disappear from one’s brain.
(2) Put facts into action by a simulation of what is written or even acting them out in somehow.
(3) Write about what you’ve absorbed in your own words and leave it in a place that you will actually read later. Maybe that screenplay you were dying to write.
