#20 DFQ

The Latin motto of the School of Thinking is:
Nemo nascitur sapiens artifex

In English, this means:
No-one is ever born a skilled thinker!

What do you think is the main insight to be gained from this motto?

  1. Skilled thinking is an an acquired skill and can be learned through study and practical experiences

  2. We are not born with the conscious awareness of ‘who’ the thinker is … therefore without awareness of what ‘thinking’ is. We just think as a reaction to the environment. As we mature in consciousness we learn that we have the ability to think outside of the reactive automatism, outside of the box, we have the ability to choose our thoughts, to analyse, to compare and how we master this ability is a skill that is learned although I believe that we are born with the potential to consciously connect with this ability.

  3. May-be some people are. There is more to genitics then most people realize. Quantum Physics, water a very basic molecule has a conscience. Try utube and ask for “water crystal” interesting video.
    If there is conscienceness at this basic level, and we are mostly composed of water and conscienceness can be transfered by thought process, isn’t there a possiblity at birth that a certain amount of skilled thinking can be transfered?

    PS Spelling is not my strong point

  4. all the great people, the “thinkers”, of the past and present, did not come about being born as skilled thinkers, but rather all of them had gone through rigorous training of their brains to become skilled thinkers

  5. Each of us possesses the ability to be skilled in our thinking, it’s just a question of whether we take the time and find the tools to develop the skills.

  6. The spirit is innocent. We come to earth with a goal in mind. Our job from birth is to work out how we become that which we intend to become. This requires the developement of our critical thinking. Thinking which allows us to become that which we intended to become
