the future of learning.
If I were outside of traditional education it would have to be in the future because there is currently no way to do what I dream of.
As soon as I was born and stripped from my mother’s womb I would be immediately entered into surgery for an access port to my brain through my spinal chord in my neck. The procedure would take 30 seconds to complete and would be performed by a man who completed technical training over a period of a week with a tool similar to the guns they use for tattoos.
By that time implant access ports would be so small that they would never need to upgrade in size with my growth as they had in the past. The port would be created by apple since the company had taken over the entire education system as well as the rest of the world in a merger with Google.
My parents would be instructed by an apple genius and introduce me to my new learning system in the hospital.
Gradually the time tapped into the system would increase from one minute to one hour by the time of my first birthday. My parents would love the fact that in two weeks time I had begun to use the miniature toilet with integrated bidet that helped reduce the consumption of paper products. I would be speaking by one month but would take the usual amount of time to learn basic motor skills. By the time I was one years old I would be speaking fluently in formal English, and developed an intrinsic understanding of the major language families’ underpinnings. Language would be the first step of my learning process. There would be no formal education in art or colors for a long time because it was well understood that children are the best artists because they have no formal knowledge to hamper their creativity.
By my second year I would be introduced into a learning community for children where we would be able to converse freely thanks to our great understanding of the English language being able to conjure up descriptions of doggies and kitties that were fitting of a fifth grader.
Through out the year at the children farm the time spent tapped into learning program would gradually increase to two hours. Before the undergoing the software based learning we would have lunch that had a large amount of glucose for our brains to be able to process more quickly and effectively. Following the download we would be napping and dreaming about the concepts and lessons that had been forced into our brains. After our naps we would be active in art without any more directions than paint, make something with a given medium or draw. The program would conclude with vigorous exercise to help drain our energy and make us more manageable for when our parents picked us up. The next year in school would begin to integrate an understanding of mathematics simultaneously with music theory. By the age of 6, I students could write geometry proofs and rock music. By 10 I would be proficient at multivariable calculus, be able to speak 9 most common languages fluently and be able to write brilliant electronic symphonies.
This practice would continue in succession to the previously mentioned program of one additional hour per year for a normal student. More gifted students could receive more hours and reach their true potential much more easily than in times past. The median age for completing an undergraduate degree would be 12 years old. But that degree would be a liberal arts degree in which the child could have a good understanding of their interests and what they wanted to pursue. From that time on I would choose architecture that would incorporate 12 hours of downloaded learning. By the age of 16 the program would have sharpened my motor skills to a robotically accurate degree allowing me to draw exquisite sketches in a matter of minutes and also be an incredible guitarist because nobody can just be one sided.
The days in the past tedious practice would be over. Unplugged and fully educated I could enter the professional world with nothing to fear especially since my training would be slightly better than the most recent graduates. I would learn the interpersonal skills required in the professional realm as apprentices working along side professionals dealing with clientele. I would now be able to tap into the professional program in which I conceptualized ideas that would be turned into computer files which would be a great departure from physically drawing or using a graphical interface with a computer design program. Physical review and presentation would only be done in meetings where the designer would present and defend their ideas to the masters in preparation for real clients.
As young professional architects like me would endure upwards of 20 hour long stretches tapped in, relying on IVs for sustenance. My meetings with clientèle would demand immediate results of conceptualized ideas drawn with traditional graphite and paper and my heightened motor skills would be a great asset.
By the age of 22 I would be considered a master having completed an incompressible amount of designing. I would not need to endure any more marathon stretches hooked up to the seven hours would be at the most leaving an hour for lunch. A comfortable 8 hour workday would be all that was demanded of him from then on. On my own time I could tap in for pleasure and become a true renaissance man having already gained notoriety in the realm of sustainable architecture.
