Do schools kill creativity?

We see extraordinary evidence of human creativity, in the variety of it and the range of it. But what's gonna happen in the future? All kids have talents and we squander them quite ruthlessly. The education needs a radical change.

Changing Education Paradigms: Do schools destroy creativity?

Everyone is interested in education
Everyone is interested in education. Partly because the education that's meant to take us to the future that we cannot now grasp.

No body has a clue what the world is gonna look like in 5 years, yet we have to educate the kids for the world after 20-30 years.

Every education system in the world has the same subjects. Like if the whole purpose of the education is to produce university professors. Our education system is predicated on our academic ability. They look upon our body as a way to transport our heads.

The reason is, the education is a product of the industrial revolution. There was no system of education before 19 century. Academic ability came to dominate our view of intelligence. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they are not.

Creativity is as important in education as literacy
All kids have talents and we squander them quite ruthlessly. Kids are not frightened to be wrong. If we are not prepared to be wrong we cannot be creative. Yet until children grow up we are educating out of this capacity. So until we grow we are educated out of creativity.

Can you imagine if Shakespeare was treated as a child in this way; "Stop speeking like that, it's confusing everybody", "Put down the pencil and go to bad now".

We are put away as children from what we like to do.

We have to rethink the whole education system

We live now in an age were degree is not that important for work. We need to radically rethink our view of intelligence. The whole structure of education is shifting under our feet.

First, Intelligence is diverse. We think of our world in all the ways we are experiencing it. We think visually, we think in sound, we think abstract, we think in movement.

Secondly, intelligence is dynamic - very interactive. Many of the ideas come from interactions even between the different subjects.

The present education system is not gonna serve us for the future. We need to adopt a new conception that will not strip the children of their creativity and imagination. Our task is to educate the whole being and prepare them for the future which we may not live to see, but they will.

The surprising truth about what motivates us


Satan has deceived the whole world into believing in a God of hate and revenge (Satan). Now you can know the true God because the woman of Revelation 12 is now here. God is precise: It is a woman Rev 12 that delivers the true word John1:1, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13 who restores Acts 3:21 all things to the world before Christ’s return. This woman exposes the lies of Satan who has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9. This woman creates a new thing in the earth by fulfilling God's promise to Eve Gen 3:15, Jer 31:22, Isa 14:16. Moses and Elijah are together with the word Matt 17:3 they all three are in this one woman. She is like unto Moses Num 12:3. She was raised up Acts 3:22 from the Laodicean church that becomes lukewarm because they refused to hear her Rev 3:14-17. She is bold like Elijah Matt 17:11, Luke 1:17. As Elijah was alone declaring the true God to the people 1 Kings 18:22 so also her witness alone turns the hearts of the fathers to the children Mal 4:5-6 to prepare a people for the Lords return before the great and dreadful day of the Lord Matt 17:3, Luke 9:30. Those who will not hear Acts 3:23 the true word of God she now delivers to the world free of charge, as a witness, at the heel of time from the wilderness Rev 12:6 will not be allowed inside the walls of God’s coming kingdom from heaven Rev 21. This true testimony of the true value of the blood of the Lamb delivers the truth that not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. God created evil Isa 45:7 to teach his children the knowledge of good and evil Rom 8:7, Gen 3:22 so that at their resurrection they become a god Matt 22:29-30, Ps 82:6. Prove all things. You cannot rightly judge this unless you read all that has been written by this woman first Pro 18:13.

This is the Gospel that shall be preached in all the world as a witness and then the end will come.
