  1. development

    Education (Latin educere, to lead or draw out) is the systematic development and cultivation of the mind and other natural powers. "Education is the harmonious development of all our faculties. It begins in the nursery, and goes on at school, but does not end there. It continues through life, whether we will or not.... 'Every person,' says Gibbon, 'has two educations, one which he receives from others, and one more important, which he gives himself.'" John Lubbock The Use of Life ch. vii, p. 111. [Macmillan & Co. '94.] Instruction, the impartation of knowledge by others (Latin instruere, to build in or into) is but a part of education, often the smallest part. Teaching is the more familiar and less formal word for instruction. Training refers not merely to the impartation of knowledge, but to the exercising of one in actions with the design to form habits. Discipline is systematic and rigorous training, with the idea of subjection to authority and perhaps of punishment. Tuition is the technical term for teaching as the business of an instructor or as in the routine of a school; tuition is narrower than teaching, not, like the latter word, including training. Study is emphatically what one does for himself. We speak of the teaching, training, or discipline, but not of the education or tuition of a dog or a horse. Breeding and nurture include teaching and training, especially as directed by and dependent upon home life and personal association; breeding having reference largely to manners with such qualities as are deemed distinctively characteristic of high birth; nurture (literally nourishing) having more direct reference to moral qualities, not overlooking the physical and mental. Knowledge and learning tell nothing of mental development apart from the capacity to acquire and remember, and nothing whatever of that moral development which is included in education in its fullest and noblest sense; learning, too, may be acquired by one's unaided industry, but any full education must be the result in great part of instruction, training, and personal association. Study is emphatically what one does for himself, and in which instruction and tuition can only point the way, encourage the student to advance, and remove obstacles; vigorous, persevering study is one of the best elements of training. Study is also used in the sense of the thing studied, a subject to be mastered by study, a studious pursuit. Compare KNOWLEDGE; REFINEMENT; WISDOM.

    The nuclear agreement announced by the Obama administration today is a dangerous, deeply flawed, and short sighted deal, based on initial reports and analysis, it appears this agreement does not 'cut off all of Iran's pathways to a nuclear weapon' -- in fact, over time, it paves Iran's path to a bomb. Most of the key restrictions last for only 10 to 15 years. Even before the deal expires, it could allow Iran to develop an industrial-scale enrichment program and continue its RD on advanced centrifuges and development of an ICBM.

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Wide wardrobe and dressing room of our self. The show begins. And in reincarnation, it must go on forever. Show of despair and self-deception. The person is not sincere towards himself. Illusions make you lie to yourself. Man consists of various self-suggestions. Sincerity is purity of heart. Few strive for truth without self-deception. A performance of selfishness where truth is parodied. 2. A person feels an emptiness inside, and a web of illusions that connects all the neurons of the relationship of thinking to which thoughts stick. A person consists of retro nostalgia and all values ​​remain in the past and fly away somewhere far away from us. The loose sands of the temptations of this world bury us alive. The emptiness inside through which the light of insight passes. You need to feel the emptiness inside to be cleansed of this world. To know the purity of consciousness. And only then will the revelations of the true self be revealed. When you stop pretending. In the silence of emptiness, you will know the truth of all that exists. 3. Death will unite times. 4. Philosophy is the blurry energy of the universe. Plunging into ourselves into the endless cosmos of inner space, wandering in endless worlds created by imagination, the basis of which is the distortion of a crooked mirror from the real world, and so we turn reality itself into a paradoxical looking glass. Through the prism of our self-interest of selfishness and despair. Improving yourself by immersing yourself in yourself. We are turning into a dimension with extraordinary energy. 5. We reveal the facets of our world, and we bring the facets of our mind to life, the abundance of illusions is an endless world of temptations and dreams, and dreams are like tears from the depths of our subconscious, as the bitter juice of sincerity flows down the face of our self, the world forms us terrible mutations of distorted reality, we cease to understand what reality is, we cease to understand ourselves and others, the round world as the infinity of cyclical life, gives rise to detachment from the past in us, and the future as a cultural shock of quantum changes sounds like a parody of the past. And the future scares us, so we want to be stuck in the past, and you are like a hermit crab in the shell of the past, you are warmed by nostalgia at night, and you want the thread of memories to never end. Painful transformations of the future, tears us off from the foundations as fetters and plunges either into flight or fall. City lights as signals of the subconscious, drowning intuition. 6. 1. All the cogs in the head are like a time machine spinning in the head, we cannot stop time and the time machine is all the lives that we have lived. And time presses on us and transforms us into something that we did not even suspect. 2. Time leads to the endless depths of self-knowledge. Time is hypnosis of space associated with our subconsciousness. Creates an epiphany portal through a chain of events. 3. Neon fornication in which our souls are lost, the lights of delusion and temptations beckon us as a chain of events leading into the void of nothingness. We learn revelation through suffering. In the darkness of eternity, we see lights that lead us away from the true path. 4. The world is a complex technology. We invade the void and create even more illusory holographic illusion. Hallucinations of seduction shape the plot of our life. Torn away from the world and its foundations. We are in the oblivion space. Prisoners of the esoteric technocracy of the universe. 7. Reincarnation is a degrading franchise. 8. Modern society has plunged into infantile oblivion. 9. 1. Surrealistic symbolism of the paradoxes of reality, reveals the philosophy of egoism. This makes society paradoxical and absurd. 2. In the well of truth, tears of insight. 10. 1. In this tree, every foliage contains the circulatory system of life. It exists according to the laws of the universe and therefore lives longer than people. A form of life that is absolutely sinless. A perfect state in which you are in harmony with the universe. Man survives, but the tree lives. Because our body is very moody from instincts. The body wants a lot, but the tree wants to live. And it absorbs the energy of the wisdom of the universe into itself. In peace and humility, we know the sincerity of life. 2. We plunge through a painful rebirth and culture shock that transforms society by adding the options of a new person to a person, the technological development of a person, which will form a highly technological thinking.
