To Be Human, a Conversation with Jeppe Graugaard

This conversation, the most recent in a longstanding dialogue, led to my most recent post, The Edifice of Thought.

We fall for lies because we want to be told what can't possibly be true. If learning is to be more than the acquisition of facts, then it is important that we realize its process is not dominant/passive. No one simply teaches another. We don’t learn what is pushed at us. We take in what we can absorb and we reflect upon insights as they arise. This is a sharing of gifts. To enter into this is to join in collaboration; each/both, teaching and learning in the mutual reciprocity of dialogue.

  1. Very good. Can you see the close parallels between what you’re saying here and the essays Imagine the Limits of the Imagination and especially What Is Real, which is about futility? Well, I guess I’m so embedded in my own approach that it’s more obvious to me. Also, when you discuss moving from language to doing that’s the same change discussed in Direct and Indirect Meaning (Being and Constructing). Mycellial connections. Very good. Talk soon.
