The school leavers citizens of each country have only one way to interpret, understand and react.
In another article (1) I commented that we can not see what they do not believe.
Perhaps it would be better to say that we can not understand what they do not believe.
Lightning and thunder are understood differently by those with different beliefs.
- Some may say that they are unrelated to each other because they occur at different times, (the lightning is seen first and soon hear the thunder because although occur simultaneously, perceive apart in time because the speed of light is greater that the speed of sound);
- Others may say it will not be long in rain;
- Some pray and entrust the god of thunder and lightning god to avoid being punished for sins committed;
- These visual and auditory stimuli storms can bring vivid memories of significant moments, perhaps stimulate some fantasy full of light, color and sound.
One of the functions of the educational system by which we must necessarily pass shortly after birth is installed in our minds a number of beliefs that we call 'knowledge'.
According to the Dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy, for "knowledge" (2) means "understanding, intelligence, natural reason."
As in every country provides skill as a curriculum determined by the rulers, citizens who pass through the education system graduate with a set of beliefs (knowledge) that require them to interpret reality in a certain way and in no other way .
With this procedure, citizens have only one way to interpret, understand and react. So the rulers can foresee what it means each be required, advise, recommend.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): El sistema educativo nos impone creencias.
