One hundred and five days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

We are now addressing the second policy issue area—energy—in our applied critical thinking quest. This first week we started with a duality, or even multiplicity, of interpretations possible of the term energy itself. As we can see we are taking full advantage of our understanding that specialization of our knowledge quest may often lead to allowing some questions to escape unanswered and possibly fall through our fingers. Otherwise how else can  we justify that blinded (by the Sun), Panda Bear, parenthood, or Water Cycle in nature and Hybrid between Access and Control all have a strong logical connection to energy? Of course they do—if we are ready to see it and analyze each such connection (and many more of them) fully. 

A week full of surprises, as well as thinking and connecting homework that was not even expressly specified. By now we all recognize nonetheless how important answering our questions is and how many more questions form in our mind after we've answered the ones we list here. 

It goes without saying that the example included herein can also be used with addressing energy. Similarly, some issues we addressed with treating education would just naturally transfer over to how we handle analysis here with the energy systems as well. 

98 bis. Bonus example to education—bitcoin, blockchain, and e-commerce law and cyber security too, can all be addressed quite well with our framework of analysis.

99. Energy

100. Hybrid process—Hybrid Access Control

101. Flows and Stores

102. Blinded (by the Sun)

103. Panda Bear

104. Parenthood 

105. Photosynthesis 

This week we really stretched our demands on our minds and hearts and souls alike. The connections made and left to be made are simply so so many. All too many to list learning objectives here after all. Good applied thinking to be useful and used in any situation is the standing learning objective! That may require self-defining the operational learning objectives by the reader! But we figured this out by now.
