Teaching is useless

Intellect is invisible to those have none.

– Arthur Schopenhauer

Teaching is useless. Information is useful. Although intelligence can seldom be increased, giving relevant information to a GOOD person so that he can fully realize his existing intelligence potential is always useful.

The intelligence-absorption principle should actually be called the information-absorption principle, because intelligence cannot be increased directly.

「智攝原則」應該改稱為「資攝原則」,因為你沒有可能,直接增加別人的智力。你可以做到的,就只有透過給予相關資料,去加快別人智力潛能的發展。換句話說,你只可以破除無知,而不可刪減愚蠢。

Information is just like technology: Intellectually challenging to create doesn’t mean intellectually challenging to use.

You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him to find it for himself.

– Galileo
