For those of you who frequent this site, you may have noticed something about me. I love to learn. I love to learn because it expands my knowledge of this crazy world we live in. I love to learn because now a days knowledge is literally power, and because knowledge is now available free to the every man, which means we the people, with only a little effort, can be truly powerful.
Here is an ironic fact, I have learned more on the internet than I ever learned in college. And the what I find on the net is not increasing in price by 25% a year.
In the ’60’s people opened their minds with LSD, today people prefer that their minds remain closed while they watch television. Be strange, be weird, turn off that damned TV now and then and learn something.
Here’s a good way to start. Free Yale Courses. You don’t have to pay a penny, and you too can receive one of the greatest educations that this planet has to offer. You wont get that expensive slip of paper, but that’s all bureaucracy anyway, it’s the learnin’ that’s important.
They have free courses in Astronomy , Biomedical Engineering , Chemistry , Classics , Ecology and Evolutionary Biology , Economics , English , History , History of Art , Italian Language and Literature , Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology , Music , Philosophy , Physics , Political Science , Psychology , and Religious Studies .
My advice, take is slow and take one class at a time, one or two lectures a week. No need to rush, but as long as you are even passively participating, you are progressing, and life is all about progression.
