You know, we used to learn and remember throught music and poetry. The Scientific Revolution set about rationalizing and stamping out such antiquated notions. Perhaps that was a mistake.

Perhaps what we need for students to lern is to return to teaching through poetry, song, art, and hands-on interaction. Rather than hiding in our hallowed halls and putting to paper obscure treastises in even more obsure language in an attempt to create a totality of clearly defined, categorized, and indexed rationality, subsuming the world in an unacknowledged belief in the mystical powers of names and numbers.

While you're at at, puppet socks discuss the free market, from boingboing tv.
