Eighty-four days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

"Should we save Homo Sapiens?"

Let's get out there and start thinking! Before it's too late.

78. Untold story

79. Mental experiment

80. Core Defining Variable (CDV)

81. Blend

82. Paradigm

83. Storytelling 

84. Canvas

Nobody and nothing can replace the power of an educated citizenry. 

All too many can steal away the individual rights of folks who refuse themselves the right to think. Don't let it happen to you.

Seventy-seven days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

We reached the end of week eleven. First week that had some serious analyses assigned. Rightly so as we started actually utilizing the concepts for bombarding practical questions with them. 

71. Proactive 

72. Nurtured Arrogant Incompetence (NAI)

73. Dogma 

74. Universal Application 

75. Training 

76. Self-recursive 

77. Resilience

This past week we made a list of things we want analyzed and explained, and we started making a list of concepts to bombard a chosen issue with—accountability. Or whatever readers chose as their own issues to address. We have a method to make a recipe and an example of an actual product...

Seventy days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

Ten weeks are past us. For those of us who decided to be engaged every day, read everything thoroughly, take in all the materials, and let our minds flow free using more and more of the concepts and suggested processes introduced every day, we should already be al much smarter, which only means so much more aware of how dumb we are as individuals and as humankind as a whole. Which is not to say that we are not so much capable to do so much better than we've done so far.;)

We also dared to give homework last day of the ten weeks—today. We shall see how that works out. 

Let's review the last week.

64. Analytical approximate completeness 

65. Indeterminism 

66. Uncertainty 

67. Appropriately irreverent 

68. Relevance,
Stand tall

69. Interdependence 

70. Language

We had a lot to get to, to take in, and to read this last week. Furthermore, right now we should be busy researching sources meant to take down over seventy years of critical problem solving, all embedded so much in almost everything that surrounds us, sold to us as the best thing since the wire to cut butter, and forgetting all of the framework behind the empty words, let alone its limitations and how to tactically and strategically eliminate them consciously and systematically. 

I'm looking forward to hearing from you—on the assignment of day 70. or on anything else. 

This is intense. I know. You can do it. Or decide not to—and say to yourself or to others "I have an uncle at MIT," hoping that you only run into people who fall for that logical fallacy—that you hope your uncle's smarts rub off on you by you simply mentioning him in conversation. Hm. It doesn't work that way. We all get that it doesn't. 

So let's tough it out and let's think for ourselves.

Sixty-three days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

We just finished week nine. The same as saying week three of course/set two of six weeks each. 

Let's review the week:

57. Distribute

58. Critical Mass 

59. Healing

60. Push and pull dual self-motivation strategy

61. Borrow

62. mă aburești 

63. Humor

What questions should we ask about these concepts to help with their use and aggregation between them and with others already introduced?
