To follow up on the distinctions brought up in From Windmills to Wind Turbines, and Back to Windmills…, There is this further distinction that applies to the basis of the fundamental rift between Technology and Craft. We invest money in technology to insulate our lives from the consequences of what we ask of it. We invest our lives in learning and practicing a Craft. In both cases we make decisions, but these decisions have a profoundly different motive and result.

We fall for lies because we want to be told what can't possibly be true. If learning is to be more than the acquisition of facts, then it is important that we realize its process is not dominant/passive. No one simply teaches another. We don’t learn what is pushed at us. We take in what we can absorb and we reflect upon insights as they arise. This is a sharing of gifts. To enter into it is to join in collaboration; each/both, teaching and learning in the mutual reciprocity of dialogue. View all posts by Antonio Dias
