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.
