Two hundred and sixty six in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

We finished 38 weeks of critical thinking related concepts and procedures, introduced one a day every day. Or, in other words, we have less than 100 days to go.

260. Beware "I'm first." statements. Dig deeper. Learn.
(A solar oven is good news.—But how old is it?)

261. Ask "Why?" of any crazy idea. Any idea was crazy at one time. Make more crazy ideas live and grow.

262. In spite of.

263. W. Edwards Deming's cafeteria 

264. Translate back and forth. From everyone. For everyone. Not just language, but also culture.


"For [Carl Sagan's] sons. May their future, and the future of all human and other beings be bright with promise." (1973)

265. Beware accelerated information asymmetry.

266. Unbeaten path.

Less than three month and we shall be done. By now from atomic and subatomic physics to cosmos and the universe we can scan almost all of humankind's most important knowledge gathered over millennia in just one week and still recognize how little we know and how important it is to modestly recognize how little we know. Plus how important is what we leave behind, and that in all we do we always keep in
mind what we leave behind.
