Issues and Trends in Curriculum – From Technology to Global Awareness

Many immediate and complex issues overwhelm educators today. With positive and negative global influences, educators must look beyond the surface of education. Students are not just products of their schools but will become shaping forces in society, determining the success and failure of their nation’s future. Curricularists, educators, and everyone in leadership need to work together to develop a well-rounded curriculum, which includes the learning of different cultures. Our next generation will need to cope with cross-cultural matters and grow into sensible adults who are fair and just to the global society.

Technology plays an essential role in our education today and will even more so in the future. Especially in countries where economic and political situations are stable, the accessibility of the Internet and computers to maximize curriculum and to act as a means of communication among educators, even to the extent of intranets, must become available. This technology should be available in every school funded by taxes and donation from private industry.

Technology can also close the gaps between the educational levels around the world. Because of the political and socio-economic differences among countries, it would be impossible for this degree of technology to reach all parts of the world, yet effort should be made to see that education is fairy distributed to all children everywhere. This will require volunteers, donations, and assistance from the capable countries internationally. Even if there was just one computer in every town for those countries for school children, it would make a difference.

Another reason technology is significant to our curriculum development is for cultural knowledge expansion. The need to understand different cultures is an emergent issue in today’s education and societies as relationships among countries become more intertwined. The United States has always been a country of diversity; however, for the longest time, the contents of its curriculum were selectively western-focused.

For example, high school world history courses emphasized primarily European and western history. We now can make use of technology to design a world history curriculum that includes not only that part of world history but extends farther. San Diego University, in cooperation with the National Center for History in the Schools at the University of Los Angeles, offers Internet information on world history and assists teachers in delivering a whole curriculum without excluding a major part of the world’s people, events, or times (San Diego State University, 2007).

We should also take advantage of technology to form a curriculum for creating international awareness, understanding various cultures, and learning different opinions and values. Curriculums

need to focus on melting down barriers against others who are different and to encourage mutual respect and understanding for other cultures and beliefs. One way to promote cultural exchange is through technological communication. Thanks to the advancement of technology today, students all over the world can actually use computers to see and to talk to each other. More effort on promoting such communication should be encouraged and assisted by the government, various organizations, and individuals with the means to do so. One day, through the help of technology in education, people will learn that we are all part of the world community.

The Kolbrin Bible – Ancient Warnings of Modern Threats

Global warming has become a planetary crisis. We sense the worst is yet to come and the ancients tell us similar events have happened before. They’ve seen natural catastrophes we’ve yet to see, and lived through tribulations we’ve yet to endure. This is why they began writing about their experiences 3600 years ago for the benefit of those yet unborn. All this plus their dire prophesies for our near future come to us in the 11 books of The Kolbrin Bible. It is your history. It is your future. Surviving it, is your choice.

The Kolbrin Bible is a substantial Biblical-era wisdom text of immense value to comparative religion scholars, space threat researchers and philosophers. The earliest books of this ancient manuscript were written following the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt. Unlike the Holy Bible and the Koran, however, it offers a view of ancient times that bridges secular and religious thought. It shows the reader how the ancients pooled their teachings together to overcome the worldwide series of catastrophes that spawned the Exodus. It also sends forth clear, urgent warnings of a repeat of those catastrophes from across the millennia to those of us living today. It also teaches us how, as a species, we can survive and overcome them.

The Kolbrin Bible offers a wealth of knowledge for:

COMPARATIVE RELIGION SCHOLARS

The Kolbrin Bible offers invaluable insights through the writing of ancient authors for those seeking a better understanding of their own faith through comparative analysis. This is because it reflects the cutting-edge metaphysical and philosophical thinking of ancient times. Some researchers feel that the early Egyptian texts may have had a direct influence on the teachings of Jesus, given the Bible’s and the Koran’s accounts of his hiding in Egypt as a child.

SPACE THREAT RESEARCHERS

For those concerned about space threats, The Kolbrin Bible offers an accurate description of a massive object called “The Destroyer” which orbits our Sun and is due to return with catastrophic results in the near future. It also correlates to Nostradamus’s “Bearded Star,” Mother Shipton’s “Fiery Dragon” and the “Red Comet” warning of the Mayan Calendar Prophecies.

PHILOSOPHERS

The Kolbrin Bible differs from the Holy Bible and Koran in that it offers a human-centered paradigm consistent with many “New Age” beliefs. The personal accounts in The Kolbrin Bible offer invaluable insights and a time machine journey into the genesis of the early religious and metaphysical thought following the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt. It teaches that we best serve God, the Light behind the Light, by serving one another. Facing obliteration by religious and government officials, these teachings eventually took root throughout ancient Europe and flourished, growing fastest during the beginning of the European Renaissance in the 14th century.

A SIMILAR HISTORY TO THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA

The parallels between the “sack” of the Library of Alexandria and the near loss of The Kolbrin Bible are of interest to scholars, researchers and philosophers alike.

Founded at the beginning of the 3rd century BCE, the Library of Alexandria was the largest in the world at that time. It was burned during Julius Caesar’s invasion of Alexandria (48 – 47 BCE). According to the Roman Philosopher and author, Aulus Gellius (123 – 169) the “sack” of Alexandria destroyed 700,000 scrolls; the pitiful few that survived only whet our regrets over this tragic loss. Oddly, the same fate nearly befell The Kolbrin Bible.

The Britain Book, the last book in The Kolbrin Bible, states that Joseph of Arimathea, great uncle to Jesus Christ, brought the Egyptian Scrolls with him when he brought the family and friends of Jesus from Judea to Britain. Credible sources state that Joseph founded Glastonbury Abbey in Somerset County, in the southwest of Britain, where the scrolls were stored for safekeeping. However, much of The Kolbrin was lost to an arson fire in 1184. Luckily, some of the original manuscripts were carved into thin bronze sheets, and stored in copper-clad boxes. These bronze sheets became known as The Bronzebook of Britain and were later combined with another collection, The Coelbook, to become The Kolbrin Bible.

WHY THE KOLBRIN IS URGENTLY RELEVANT TO MODERN TIMES

The need to study The Kolbrin Bible is urgent because it warns us of a long period object called “The Destroyer” that is soon to return. The detailed accounts contained in The Kolbrin Bible of the last flyby event are factually prescient and help explain current perturbations in our solar system. More importantly, The Kolbrin Bible offers us new hope by telling us how humanity survived and evolved beyond the last flyby of “The Destroyer.”

The Biggest and Most Expensive Science Experiment and The Martian "Refreshment"

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

The Large Hardon Collider or the LHC, is a highly publicized as the biggest science experiment of all time, was certainly, with no question, the most expensive, costing about a staggering $9 billion. The LHC, the most powerful particle collider ever assembled, was built near Geneva in Switzerland, by a group of more than 10, 000 scientists and support staff from 111 nations. Activated for the first time in September 2008, the LHC will be used to help physicists understand more complex issues such as dark matter and other mysteries of the universe. But some mechanical problems caused the LHC to shut down until around the summer of 2009.

ADDITIONAL TRIVIA:

Many people feared that the Large Hardon Collider (LHC) would be so powerful and strong that it would create a black hole and swallow the universe. Thanks God! The good news is it did not.

The Martian Refreshments

Over the summer, NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander spacecraft took soil samples from the surface of Mars that turned out to contain H2O – good old water, just like on Earth. While the Mars Odyssey Orbiter had already found evidence of water in the form of ice, the Phoenix event was the first time a NASA probe had actually “touched and tasted” water sample. This was exciting for the scientists because water- particularly if it gets warm enough to thaw from ice to liquid – is one good indicator of the possibility of life on the Red Planet.

The Purpose of Education – Creating Responsible, Productive Citizens

“The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards”. – Anatole France

The purpose of education is to create responsible, productive and socially contributing citizens – people who can provide for their own families as well as contribute to their communities. As Toffler says, education in the 21st century should allow people to learn, unlearn and relearn. But I am not sure our schools and colleges are committed to this.

Education is one of the most unscientific human endeavors. You do well in school to get into a good college and earn a good degree. A good degree is supposed to be a passport to a good job. Based on your educational qualifications, you can climb to a reasonably high position without having to demonstrate any exceptional ability.

Beyond that, however, you may have problems. There is no established link between your performance in school and your performance in a job. Even more importantly, there is no link between your performance on the job and your performance in life.

To be true to purpose, education should support a child develop three fundamental capabilities:

1. Discover, develop and continually evolve a vision to become a useful member of society:

Many of us have an advantage – our parents envision our future for us, driving us to work towards achieving this vision. However, this is not as common among the poor. The education system has to step in to help everyone create this vision, and to build even the poor child’s confidence to pursue the vision.

Balaji Sampath, who runs Eureka Child – an NGO committed to improving literacy and math ability in government schools, told us a touching story in this context. Coming back from the US to do something meaningful in education, he immersed himself in local issues by spending a few months in a village. He was in a village classroom when a child asked the teacher whether it was possible to travel to the moon. “You and I cannot fly to the moon,” the teacher answered. “But scientists in the U.S. can…” We must stop robbing our children of goals and dreams.

2. Understand that questions are more important than answers:

Our education system places undue emphasis on providing answers – often to questions that children do not have. In other words, too often we teach children concepts without context; we need to show them why learning is important. We need to focus on awakening kids’ natural curiosity and teaching them to love learning. A good way to do this is to place children in natural experiences or in games where they can ask questions. In these settings, learning is immediate and strong. Learning can be a structured discovery process, offering students varied learning outcomes – just as our situations and decisions later in life offering different outcomes.

For example, an NGO in Mumbai went to schools with an experiment to teach students about water conservation. The pupils measured the amount of water consumed while brushing their teeth with the tap open, and then again with the tap off. Imagine, if we all learn this type of lesson in school, how we can apply the principles to so many other aspects of our home and work later in life.

3. Learning to Learn:

The world is evolving too fast for schools and colleges to keep up. What is being taught is inadequate and outdated, or will be soon. It is important that children are encouraged to discover answers on their own – through the Internet, through experimenting and by having access to experts on the cutting edge of every field.

It is important that students learn the scientific method –

(a) creating a hypothesis based on observations,

(b) designing and conducting experiments to prove or disprove these hypotheses and

(c) arriving at conclusions while recognizing that the conclusions could change with additional information.

With the level of knowledge available in the world today, it is also important to exercise judgment what to learn, and how and when you need to learn it. We need to teach kids when to rely on their own judgments,, and when to rely on the expertise of others. Our children must learn that even when you outsource the effort, you retain responsibility over the result.

What do you think? Do you agree with these ideas about the critical capabilities that our children need? Is our educational system addressing this? Do share your thoughts and experiences with all of us.

Cure for Cancer Mathematics

The concept that cancer is endemic to tribes but not to species has been associated with the evolution of science itself. Tribal science evolves human intellect by developing weapons of war. This evolutionary procedure becomes a form of neurological cancer when DNA shows that the human species is harming itself. From that medical perspective, both tribal science and human survival science are part of human evolution. Therefore, both sciences can be programmed together with relevant antidote information in order to generate human survival simulations. Irrefutable medical diagnoses thus obtained will instigate crucial beneficial conflict dialogue between hostile tribes. As a result, relevant technologies will become evident, enhancing the transition to our functioning as a single species.

The Western educational system has access to this antidote information, however, it remains governed by tribal science traditions employing dysfunctional information. Epidemiologists refer to this phenomenon as a 3D epidemic transmitted through the mass manufacture of dysfunctional communication and information devices. Inessential information is now overloading our educational system, creating considerable global social chaos. This medical disorder is induced by tribal science’s obsolete obsession with the survival of the fittest paradigm.

The Founder of the American National Cancer Research Foundation, Szent-Gyorgyi, was awarded a Nobel Laureate in Medicine. His 1972 ‘Letter to Science’ advised that prevailing science was carcinogenic because it allowed itself to be governed by the ‘Second Law of Thermodynamics’. He postulated that the energies of thermodynamic chaos entangled with living information in order to evolve universal consciousness, hence the prevailing understanding of thermodynamics was in effect, cancerous. He referred to this tribal science cancer as being inherited from our Neolithic ancestors.

Visual mathematical proof of the antidote to this disease has been extrapolated from Western Education’s association with Plato’s educational system belonging to his ‘Science for Ethical Ends’. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Plato’s Ethics: An Overview, First published Tue Sep 16, 2003; substantive revision Wed Dec 6, 2017 comments on Plato’s description of the geometrical nature of courage, wisdom and moderation with the comment “If justice is health and harmony of the soul, then injustice must be disease and disorder”. Plato’s ‘All is Geometry’ concept considered the living anima to be a perpetual phenomenon. This integral aspect of the living process was given mathematical credence within Georg Cantor’s geometrical sensibilities.

Mitosis in healthy cell division has been photographed as a 3D electromagnetic, infinite fractal expression obeying Cantor’s geometrical access to infinity. This visual evidence contradicts the prevailing thermodynamic understanding that all life must become extinct. 21st Century quantum biology cancer research understands that healthy living information flows in the opposite direction to balance the flow of thermodynamic chaos energy, as Szent-Gyorgi had predicted in 1972.

Despite Plato’s tribal science limitations his genius geometrical intuition of a more profound, ethical, universal purpose is truly extraordinary. It provided the crucial antidote information to resolve the existing 3D global medical epidemic. His lodestone electromagnetic anima, held to exist within the confines of his plane geometry education system, is now clearly visible to the general public.

Salvador Dali’s conviction, derived from Platonic Science-Art theories, that the flat plane of a painting contained hidden 3D stereoscopic images, was made visible to the pubic last century at the Dali Stereoscopic Museum in Spain. Since then his rather cumbersome presentations have been greatly upgraded by Australian Science-Art researchers, in which interlocking 3D images within paintings can be viewed to provide crucial neurological antidote information. During the 1980s the relevant ancient Greek mathematics was programmed into a computer to obtain seashell lifeforms evolving over a period of fifty million years, rather that evolving towards Einstein’s thermodynamic extinction.

In 1990 the world’s largest research institute, IEEE in Washington, reprinted this as being an important mathematical, optical discovery belonging to 20th Century science:

Illert, C. 1987, The New Physics of Ultrathin Elastic Conoids, Il Nuovo Cimento, and Formation and Solution of the Classical Seashell problem II Tubular Three Dimensional Seashell Surfaces. Il Nuovo Cimento, 1989. The Science-Art Centre… selected from the World literature for reprinting in Spie Milestone Series, Vol. MS 15, selected papers on Natural Optical Activity, pages 12-23 and 24-33, section one. Chirality and Optical Activity, 1990.

In 1995 the Institute for Basic Research in America transposed the optical mathematics into a physics format. Attempts to use quantum mechanical mathematics to generate healthy seashell life-form simulations through time, resulted in biological distortions verifying Szent-Gyorgyi’s observation that tribal science is a form of cancer.

During 2016 quantum biologists and the Quantum Art Movement International together with the Australian Science-Art researchers presented the 3D antidote information along with the supporting information in Rome, Italy. The Science-Art presentation was then entered into the Russian Art Week International Contemporary Art Competition, where it was awarded a First Prize Diploma. In 2017 the World Art Fund in Russia, in collaboration with the Quantum Art Movement group, included the antidote information into their Science-Art Research Project.

The problem remains that prevailing international tribal science considers that it is ethical to link science with aesthetics, which is the carrier of the global epidemic. For example, in 2017 two American Universities created a ‘Time Crystal’ demonstrating that our understanding of thermodynamic reality was in fact an optical illusion. Nonetheless, they expressed intent to fuse such information into artificial intelligence technology. Under such circumstances the global 3D epidemic would be accelerated toward a terminal state of entropic, thermodynamic chaos.

The philosopher, Emmanuel Kant, researched Plato’s concept of lodestone’s electromagnetic ability to demonize aesthetics, as referred to in his dialogue between Socrates and Ion. Kant used the difference between aesthetics and ethical artistic wisdom as the foundation of the electromagnetic Golden Age of Danish Science. He deduced that the future of ethical thought belonged to an asymmetrical electromagnetic field evolving within the creative artistic mind.

The European space Agency’s Planck Observatory photographed the oldest light in the universe revealing that it was asymmetrical in nature, coming into existence before the creation of symmetrical, electromagnetic light. Therefore, Plato’s evolving ethical science moves from his dark abyss to the creation of asymmetrical light, then on to the creation of matter within its present symmetrical state of reality.

In 1957 the University of New York’s Library of Science published the book ‘Babylonian Mythology and Modern Science’ explaining that Einstein deduced his theory of relativity from Babylonian mythological intuitive mathematics. Einstein’s tribal worldview insisted that the living process must evolve itself toward thermodynamic extinction. He was therefore unable to accept David Hilbert’s argument to him that Cantor’s asymmetrical mathematics validated Szent-Gyorgyi’s cancer research conviction. Einstein’s physical reality was maintained by its remaining in a symmetrical state of existence, obeying the dictates of symmetrical light pointing to chaos, rather than in the opposite direction to that of Plato’s evolving ethical science. The Plank Observatory discovery demonstrated that Einstein’s world-view was by nature carcinogenic.

The philosopher of science, Timothy Morton, Professor and Chair of English at Rice University in Texas argues that Plato’s demonizing of aesthetics has taken us into a new electromagnetic era, which he refers to in his paper ‘Art in the Age of Asymmetry’. Kant’s anticipation of an ethical, spiritual, asymmetrical, electromagnetic technology was also echoed by Charles Proteus Steinmetz. He was a principal figure in the electrification of the United States of America, who stated that the development of a spiritual, asymmetrical, electromagnetic technology would have been far superior, and more morally beneficial, than the one he had been paid to help invent.

Plato argued the merits of learning plane geometry must not be studied for its practical uses but for training the mind for ethical understanding. He let arithmetic become the first of the subjects of education, then research into its relevant science was to become the student’s concern. From his published Notebooks, Leonardo da Vinci wrote that visual perspective was made clear by the five terms of Plato’s mathematical logic. Leonardo then made the statement that completely divorced his tribal scientific genius from Plato’s concept of an infinite, living, holographic 3D universe. Leonardo had written “The first object of the painter is to make a flat plane appear as a body in relief and projecting from that plane… “, he most emphatically claimed that the flat plane of a painting surface could never contain a true 3D image.

There is no doubting Leonardo da Vinci’s mechanistic genius. However, the visual evidence that paintings can indeed contain important unconscious, 3D stereoscopic images means he was certainly not the great man of the 15th Century Italian Renaissance that tribal science claims he was. This simple fact explains the magnitude of the present 3D global epidemic of dysfunctional information. It also provides the evidence to explain the crucial importance of the 3D antidote technology that belongs to Plato’s atomic ‘Science for Ethical Ends’, necessary to generate sustainable human survival blueprint simulations.
