    Default What do you still want to learn?

    What do you still want to learn in this life?

    What knowledge are you still missing? What do you want to learn before you die?

    Wouldn't it be strange to walk through life without knowledge of X...

    Last year I decided that I absolutely need to learn more about world history. It would feel really strange to go through life without knowing what has happened before I got here. And my history knowledge is pretty bad, so there is a real reason for me to improve it. I'm starting from the beginning, last 10.000 years -> present.

    It would be interesting to hear what you think.

    Why should we make such questions? Learning as a process is a discovery. If someone else knows it it serves as a shortcut to new things - a life long process.

    I don't think there's much I don't want to learn, other than the unpleasant details of topical news.

    If I have a weak spot to that end, it would concern practical skills generally e.g. cooking, learning to drive (which I don't actually want to do), bribing public officials etc.

    General subject areas might include engineering, architecture, advanced mathematics, advanced programming...if I had advanced programming skills, this would probably be of greatest benefit to me. Those are subjects that I would generally find not especially enjoyable.

    It might not be necessary to ask such questions. In my case I felt that the need for learning history was imposed on me "from above". It's not even a pure interest but rather something "I have to do".

    My mind is blank on this. I guess I will know when I see it.

    I probably learn something new everyday though.

    Then you have learnt that you don't want to learn history. Discovery continues. See there is no need to have official structure to it.

    Personally. I'm thinking of learning bit more math. Like more in depth about differential equations, Fourier analysis and such.

    I don't have anything that I want to learn...learning to me happens as a side effect of taking action....of being in the action, but the learning part is never a first priority. It just happens later when brain catches up with body. If I run into an obstacle that I cannot get through unless I learn something, I'll learn it on the fly but that's due to necessity. Hell, I got a business off the ground that way.

    I’d like to take some more medical courses while I can, I think that would be cool.

    Math, Foreign Language(s), Architectural design, Economics. Maybe a computer language. Learning how to massage would be fantastic too.

    I would like to learn the map of connections for all in this world, the purpose of existence, the purpose of my existence, whether I have lived a life before, whether I will live a life again, have I interacted with the people who occurred in this life in another life, whether my sister is my full sister (please sister take a DNA test...so many half siblings,), is my experiencing the resting place of dead people for real, why was I born with an above average faulty body, will some people really burn in hell fires when they pass, why my hands are so manly looking.

    I would appreciate complete knowledge of Socionics and be sure I am typed correctly or if I’m ENTp or another type :-)
    I would like to type all at a glance and be able to easily verbalise why.

    I would maybe but maybe not like to learn to drive...actually nah.

    How to earn much money at a super fast rate without fail and have no debt.

    Much more will be sure to come to mind but that will do for now...

    I’ve had a dream of learning how to become completely self sufficient for a while. Homesteading stuff. I’d like to learn how to knit, wouldn’t mind taking cooking classes and learning how to use spices/grow herbs/garden/canning. Besides that, I just learn whatever captures my interests and like reading books, or online, about what does. So it could be whatever. I think life in itself is a learning process, so I am learning something new everyday anyway. Mostly I notice people. I like learning about people and why they do the things they do.

    I’d also like to learn how to drive a manual/ stick shift vehicle, but I’m terrified of them lol

    Can’t think of anything I wouldn’t want to learn, just some things I’m more interested in than others.

    I've been wanting to learn more self-sufficiently as well so I have a plan b to working bullshit jobs. The socio-economic situation isn't looking too stable.

    How to make people immortal, how to create tools to genetically modify macrofeatures of humans, what the nature of intelligence and consciousness are

    As far as things other people know I don't, mostly advanced math stuff, narrative history, and what wise old dead people once said and why.

    I think you'd be good at it and should pursue it. Just a feeling.

    Actually I have wondered if you were Chinese even though that's a bit weird... just a vibe I get.

    I would like to learn and study ancient scripts, Sumerian cuneiform especially. I am interested in a sort of evolutionary (becoming) view of the emergent properties of civilization, and want to bury myself deeper in philological studies.
    When the heavens above did not exist,
    And earth beneath had not come into being —
    There was Apsû, the first in order, their begetter,
    And demiurge Tia-mat, who gave birth to them all;
    They had mingled their waters together
    Before meadow-land had coalesced and reed-bed was to he found —
    When not one of the gods had been formed
    Or had come into being, when no destinies had been decreed,
    The gods were created within them:

    How to be a master cook is the next thing on the list. Once I have real money I can do it. I don't know where to begin really, that will be the biggest problem. Probably I'm gona find historically the greatest cookbooks or maybe the greatest chefs throughout history and read what they had to say than practice for a while. Gota get an actual house first... though. ANd high quality pots and sharp knives, etc.

    You want to get a house first?

    This interests me, but have you thought about starting small, with just simple, everyday food? With proper knowledge even simple food can be made delicious. That's what I feel is wrong: There is no excuse not to eat gourmet food every day. You don't need money for it. I started this weekend with a) red beet soup, super cheap and very tasty. b) shrimps+ home made aeoli+ dill+ rye bread. mmm.

    Well I'm gona graduate soon and upon graduation I'll be making a ton of money immediately. So at that point I'll have both a house with a decent kitchen and also the money to afford all the supplies I need... including the ingredients. To cook the kind of food I'm interested in learning to cook. And I'll have the time also.
    But I have been starting small, I tried cooking spaghetti the other day. Once I have some more money I'm gona try to improve the recipe. It turned out alright... cooking the noodles was a learning experience.

    I'm not sure yet. I'd rather beat everybody in the head with what I already know then learn something new it feels like. lol. I guess this isn't 'healthy' or 'right' but its hard to snap out of it.

    Learn French and Russian. Both are very beautiful and melodic languages (russian more so, it's such a sing-song language), and being able to reach through the language barrier to other people is always a lovely thing.

    Some possible advice:

    - join some kind of community
    - make yourself useful for others
    - work
    - make a commitment to something
    - be open to decay and becoming more ordinary
