Breakthroughs, The Triumphs of Learning Over Knowing

Every breakthrough is a triumph of learning over knowing.

Learning generates inner scaffolding that extends old knowing into new knowing.

Something new is only intelligible through the old, but only new because it transcends the old.

Learning is the central dynamic of living change.

We are the current generations of transgenerational learning. The genetic differences between us and our grandparents or even our 10,000 year old ancestors has almost nothing to do with the off-scale differences in the worlds we live in.

Think about the person you dislike the most. How could you possibly know that if you had lived his or her life since birth you’d be any different? Who are you other than who you learned to be? How could know who you are other than through learning?

Learning idiosyncraticizes the effects of living.
