instruction, knowledge?

Post by DPMartin »

there seems to be a misunderstanding of the simple but sometime complex prosses of instruction to knowledge

an example might be a child is told not to stick anything in the wall plug, or socket and the child does exactly that, sticks something in the socket, and then knows the experience of doing so which can be memorable, pain usually is.
Granted there may be more than meets the eye in this but there's the instruction, the experience, which is to know hence knowledge. also, should another child see what happened, is that "revelation", also knowledge?
knowledge can be acquired without instruction, but instruction presuming its the truth of the matter is a blessing of life and living, that can preserve one's life and living.

the belief or trust in the instructions or the instructor is probably another subject though the faith in or lack of it, is essential in the prosses of instruction to experience that would be favorable or unfavorable.

You can instruct a child not to stick anything into an electrical outlet, and you can instruct the child to have the actual skill set not to stick things into the outlet, but instruction alone will not affect the child’s attitude about following your instructions or not.

though you can classify it as attitude, is it really belief and or trust? or even the desire, or lack of desire to please? it seems i might be stuck on please or pleasing, but it seems to be a main motivator. as in why the child can or can't be entrusted to follow the instructions.

But keep the instruction simple as Steven Law did in his book, "30 - Second Philosophies."

I feel like that should be a simple diagram/flowchart.
