How to Read a Book 1. Open book. 2. 3. 4. Reading a book seems like a pretty straightforward task, doesn’t it? Why Do We Need Instructions on How to Read a Book? “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” In 1940, Mortimer Adler wrote the first edition of what is now considered a classic of education, How to Read a Book. He states that there are four types of reading: Elementary - This is just what it sounds like. This post will cover inspectional and analytical reading, and we’ll focus mostly on analytical. Analytical reading is where most readers fall short. How come people can’t read at a higher level? That’s our task today with this post. Inspectional Reading As mentioned above, there are certainly times when inspectional reading is appropriate. You can often get a pretty good feel for a book with inspectional reading by following the steps below. Read the title and look at the front and back covers of the book. Analytical Reading Why Read Analytically?

Math Games Help To Motivate Students And Make Learning Fun. Wonders of Math - The Game of Life What is the Game of Life? by Paul Callahan Rules of the Game of Life Life is played on a grid of square cells--like a chess board but extending infinitely in every direction. A cell can be live or dead. A live cell is shown by putting a marker on its square. To apply one step of the rules, we count the number of live neighbors for each cell. A dead cell with exactly three live neighbors becomes a live cell (birth). Note: The number of live neighbors is always based on the cells before the rule was applied. In Life, as in nature, we observe many fascinating phenomena. The rules described above are all that's needed to discover anything there is to know about Life, and we'll see that this includes a great deal. Life Patterns A good way to get started in Life is to try out different patterns and see what happens. The R-pentomino is the first pattern Conway found that defied his attempts to simulate by hand. What Kinds of Objects Emerge in Life? Some other still lifes you will see are:

A Brief Guide to 3rd, 4th, and 5th Dimensional Time-Space Perception As a student of psychology in my youth, one of the things that fascinated me most was how in other “hard science” disciplines you could come up with incredibly freaky theories about shit like dark matter and quantum physics, then actually talk about them publicly without being laughed at. I suppose this is because of math, but if you break any of the aforementioned theories down too far, you’re basically dealing with the idea that humans can barely perceive the vast majority of what’s going on in the universe. Yet, say the same thing in regards to consciousness and it’s simply not tolerated. Goes against everything we believe in. What I find most hilarious about say, people getting super excited about things like string theory, is it doesn’t stand up to even the most basic of exploratory questioning. What about fucking insects? 3rd Dimensional Time-Space Perception In Gnostic terms, this would be referred to as the son (or daughter). 4th Dimensional Time-Space Perception
