Education

What is it to get a good education?

Is it to attend to an “excellent” University?

Is it to “know a lot”?

I decided to become a scientist because I appreciated knowledge above all. I wanted to have access to the truth that only science can give us.

But now I know that a real education is not about the knowledge you have.

A real education is about the knowledge you create. 

And how do you create it?

By connecting the dots, by setting up a new theory or a new way of thinking, by seeing a link nobody saw before.

Not only by knowing stuff but by doing something of value with them.

The education most of us have received is about remembering things of the past.

It’s about content.

A good education is about doing things for the future.

It’s about creativity and critical thinking.
