Friends

The construct of self has been my study for the past 30 odd years. It
started with addressing how education in the non-western world is an
attempt to westernize and colonize the sensibilities of the learner.
Learner is a wrong term. Conditioning is the right term. In my attempt
understand and deal with my own colonized mind set I have been studying
beauty, cognition, culture. Children etc

My life with illiterate people gave a clearer picture on natural cognition.
The illiterates we talk about are the ones who are using the natural,
biological process of cognition as they use sense, observation- the
cognitive tools and  concrete phenomenon they see, experience as their
cognitive source and self- organization of the cognitive inputs for
comprehension. Through insight the knowing happens and the reasoning and
language comes in communication.

The being-ness of the literate mind is a total mental construct as
perception and the cognitive apparatus has been totally impacted by
conditioning and control. Individuality itself is the result of one such
construct by the literate mind. The fragmentation, alienation etc is the
result of that. The right brain left brain divide is another result of
wrong cognition due to dependence on language.

The cognitive conditions in literate and non- literates (sense literates)
are so different from each other and the respective being-ness is
constructed by this cognitive conditions.

Freedom, no teaching, no instruction, condition of trust, activities that
connects one to primary natural phenomenon is the general condition in
sense literate society where the innate and natural being-ness of the child
is awakened. Child is naturally open, observant of life around, non-
egoistic as no one builds it nor break it. No praise no punishments. The
self- initiative and self- motivated nature of all natural learning beings
work naturally.

The literate conditions are totally opposite. Control, instruction,
distrust of environment, constant doníts is what child normally encounters
and child is constantly taught and is not given the space and time for
natural awakening.

The literate cultures are constantly dealing with what is known and this
can be traced to the Guttenberg revolution which heralded the literacy
movement.

The fundamental difference in the cognitive conditions that exist in these
two paradigms are that the conditions in literate paradigm conditions and
the other one awakens the inherent potential.

News from the discoveries of cognitive science and related fields
definitely demands a total change in the way learning space for children
are organized.
