“ What grinds me the most is we're sending kids out into the world who don't know how to balance a checkbook, don't know how to apply for a loan, don't even know how to properly fill out a job application, but because they know the quadratic formula we consider them prepared for the world` With that said, I'll admit even I can see how looking at the equation x -3 = 19 and knowing x =22 can be useful. I'll even say knowing x =7 and y= 8 in a problem like 9x - 6y= 15 can be helpful. But seriously, d ...more ”

[close] This global discussion group has been designed to encourage debates about important and underreported issues of our era. All you need is an enquiring mind and a desire to gain or share “underground knowledge”. This is also a place to discuss the controversial topics explored in The Underground Knowledge Series (non-fiction books) by James Morcan & Lance Morcan as well as the Underground Knowledge podcast show.

[close] This is a group to explore the esoteric writings of The Catcher In The Rye through the lens of WW1 and WW2. To define that I take a quote from Philosophy Between The Lines "An esoteric writer or writing would involve the following characteristics: first, the effort to convey certain truths—the “esoteric” teaching—to a select group of individuals by means of some indirect or secretive mode of communication; second, the concomitant effort to withhold or conceal these same truths from most people; and third (a common but not strictly necessary characteristic) the effort to propagate for the sake of the latter group a fictional doctrine—the “exoteric” teaching—in place of the true doctrine that has been withheld." In Decadence: And Other Essays on the Culture of Ideas (1921) THE DISASSOCIATION OF IDEAS Jhere are two ways of thinking. One can either accept current ideas and associations of ideas, just as they are, or else undertake, on his own account, new associations or, what is rarer, original disassociations. The intelligence capable of such efforts is, more or less, according to the degree, or according to the abundance and variety of its other gifts, a creative intelligence. It is a question either of inventing new relations be- tween old ideas, old images, or of separating old ideas, old images united by tradition, of considering them one by one, free to work them over and arrange an infinite number of new couples which a fresh operation will disunite once more, and so on till new ties, always fragile and doubtful, are formed. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiotics https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argot

[close] This book donation drive will benefit the town of Aliceville, Alabama. Books will be given to local teachers and community leaders for them to decide on the distribution strategy. The idea is to get good books into the hands of educators, families, and children. The books listed on the shelves in this group are already purchased and ready to donate. Help is needed in making recommendations for other books to donate, or reviews of books already purchased. Imaginative play toys, art and craft supplies, etc., are being matched with the books. Donations of books and small items to go with the books are accepted.
