Improving Education

Knowledge and Information for the 21st Century.

The goal is to assist in developing intelligence by building a high quality education with easy to follow lessons and self testing capabilities so that every student or person can learn at their own pace and in their own time and place. We also want to make education available to millions of children who don't have excess, preserving their potential and the future. To make education easily available, it would need to be computerized. That is the idea behind the HOPE PC. Develop an entire education into software that can run on most PC's, and even some Smartphone's.

Welcome to Basic Knowledge 101.com. A place where Learning Never Stops.
BK101 School Anthem is Never Stop Learning, by Teresa Jennings.
The Future of Education is upon us. This is our Window of Opportunity.

A Perfect Education

Developing Intelligence. A search for the world’s most valuable knowledge and information.

Since 2008 I have been collecting all the valuable knowledge and information that I could find and then organizing it all on this website. The plan is to create a public domain knowledge base that can be used to improve education and also provide education to people without access to schools or online courses. But I know that this knowledge will improve much more then just schools and education, it will improve everything. Everything will improve. And that is a fact that everyone has witnessed, when more knowledge and information is available, and when more people become more educated, things improve, as they have been since the beginning.

Instructions Page - About that Name

When I started this project in 2008, I had no idea what kind of knowledge I would find, or how much knowledge I would find, or did I know how many months or years that I would spend collecting and organizing knowledge and information. All I knew is that I have already been collecting and organizing on the internet for 10 years since 1998. But for those 10 years I was more focused on travel, adventure, experiences, sports and recreation. Looking for Adventure.com

Now my main focus has changed. More knowledge based, thus the name Basic Knowledge 101.com. This project has change my life. I thought I was learning a lot before I started this project, but now my learning speed has accelerated, and the quality of knowledge and information has increased tremendously.

Fair Use Disclaimer

It's amazing how much we have learned and discovered in just the last 50 years. To see it is to believe it. But to see it you must learn it. And learning it all takes time, but not much more time as the 12 years or so that we go to school. The time people waste not learning what is needed to learn, is more then just time wasted, it's wasting opportunity, it's wasting potential, it's wasting life.

19 years on the Internet, and now almost 10 years of Researching, collecting and organizing the worlds most valuable knowledge and information.

Knowledge is spread out all over the world. This is one of the reasons why the internet is so extremely important. The internet helps us to connect to the most valuable knowledge that we have accumulated so far. But knowledge stills needs to be collected, organized and easily transferable, which is what I have been working on since 2008, roughly 60 hours a week. Knowledge has definitely change me, though I still have my original personality, I now have more to add to my personality. I'm more patient and more understanding now then ever before. Knowledge has helped cure me of most of the ignorance that I have accumulated during the first 48 years of my life. But I still have some ignorance to contend with, but at least I know what this ignorance is, so it's just a matter of time before that ignorance is gone as well. I feel more Connected to life then ever before, I feel more alive, I feel closer to Life and closer to God. I'm more aware. But I am also more aware that I am still vulnerable, because I still have a lot more to learn. The good news is that I'm becoming a faster learner and a better analyzer. The bad news is, more people are still without access to knowledge and thus becoming ignorant and not fully aware, which diminishes their enormous potential and adds to our problems instead of solving them. So I have a lot of work to do, and I know that I will never stop working, which makes me feel privileged, fortunate and honored. There's a change blowing on the wind, and it's something wonderful.

The 1st goal is to use the world’s most valuable knowledge and information to improve education, and to develop a high quality curriculum that is available to everyone. The 2nd goal is to develop intelligence for both Artificial Intelligence and Human Intelligence. The 3rd goal is to put the world’s most valuable knowledge and information in your hands, which is possible thanks to all the amazing advancements in digital technology. So most Smartphone’s, TV's or Computers could be a teaching and learning tool. The 21st century is mankind’s defining moment; our future is in our hands, figuratively and literally.

In 1998 I started building and managing my first personal website. After 10 years of web surfing and collecting and organizing websites, in 2008 I started doing a lot of reading online and surfing the internet on a lot of different websites then before. I started to read a lot about education. People were mentioning Education Reform on a lot of different websites. So became interested in knowing what kind of education improvements people were talking about. Like most people, I knew that schools needed to improve, but I never knew what those improvements would look like. So I started to ask these questions, "what would be the perfect education?" "what would a high quality education look like?" So I started to read more and collect more information. That is when I started to build a new website, BK101. I found a large variety of curriculum. So I asked this question, "what is the purpose of this curriculum?" I mean, what would be the desired results from learning this knowledge? That's when I realized that these questions go a lot more deeper. This is not just about schools and curriculum, this is about someone's life, this is about someone's potential. So I asked this question, "what would be the most valuable knowledge, skills and information a person should have?" So of course I started collecting and organizing all the knowledge and information I could find, things I thought that would be beneficial and valuable to people.

2018, 10 years later, I found more knowledge and information then I could have ever imagined. I have been transformed from so many things that I have read and watched on videos in the last ten years, it's mind blowing. I have changed in many ways but I'm still the same in many ways, and so is life. My life has improved in many ways, but sadly, life itself has not improved, not as much as it should have. There are still many problems that surround life. But I know now that every problem can be solved, we just have to learn how to solve them. But some problems are big and will take many months and years to solve. But I know that if I start, I have a chance to finish, or at the least, I can still give someone else a chance to finish. Education can be world changing, education can be empowering, but education is almost meaningless if a persons full potential is never achieved. This is why having a high quality education is so extremely important, we can't afford to settle for anything less. The world is in desperate need of intelligent and skilled people, people who can solve any problem that they put their minds to.

2017 did gleam like nothing you have ever seen. The 2017 election year was another wake up call, and another sad example of how uninformed and ill-informed we all are. Everyone needs to exercise our power choice, and take our responsibility to educate ourselves seriously. Our destiny and our salvation is in our hands. We vote everyday, so it's time that we start using our abilities. We can no longer ignore the responsibilities of our lives, and we can no longer ignore the wealth of knowledge that is in our hands. We are born to learn, so let us use this gift wisely and maximize our fullest potential. Our possibilities are limitless.

Academic Paper Writing - Summaries

The Perfect Education would be an education that provided the necessary knowledge and skills for any person to pursue any career, any goal, any dream or any form of higher education. And at the same time provide a person with a good understanding about themselves and the world around them. This would take approximately 20,000 hours of the worlds best educational courses, knowledge, information, videos, images and sound. Exceeding the equivalent of 12 years of education knowledge and skills. Starting with Child Development, K-12 and College Level Courses. This education will be available online and offline using flash drives that will run on any computer or smartphone. People could then educate themselves in their own time and in their own chosen environment, as well as test themselves and evaluate their performance and progress. So any laptop could act as a delivery system of knowledge and information. This will not replace schools or teachers. This will only provide more options and choices and bring more education to more people, which would ultimately relieve the stresses that are produced by an undereducated society.

Education Purpose

Humans have accumulated an enormous amount of information and knowledge over the last 2,000 years. And a lot of this information and knowledge is extremely important, especially where education is concerned. If we were to use this information and knowledge effectively and efficiently, it would be a great benefit to everyone and everything on this planet. The Actual Value of information and knowledge is just starting to be understood, mostly because of the internet, which is a world of knowledge and experience at your fingertips. You could say that our biggest advancement started with the Printing Press, but if it were not for the two main catalysts, the Computer and the Internet, we would have a much different world today. The Digitizing of the printed word has put us into overdrive. Without the computer and the internet we would have not seen the advances in technology that we see today. And if it were not for computers and the internet, and my inquisitive nature, and the millions of other people who have contributed to the largest collaboration in the world, I would have never learned as much as I did. I also would have never learned how to build a website or learned about the similarities between the human brain and a computer. And I would have never started my education project in 2008. So my life would have been completely different and definitely not as productive or meaningful.

We are all standing on the shoulders of giants. Let us not waste their efforts, or the potential they have given us, it's priceless.

There are so many things that Schools and Universities don't teach students. So here on Basic Knowledge 101 we list most of the knowledge, information and skills that are missing from your education...and we have only just begun...

Our wealth of knowledge has incredible potential. But sadly most of our information and knowledge is being wasted, misused, exploited, unappreciated, underutilized, unorganized, unrealized, being lost, misplaced, destroyed and most knowledge is not even being properly distributed or shared. Then on top of that our Technology is being Wasted and misused.

Education Purpose and Learning Objectives

Improving education and our effectiveness to communicate our most important information and knowledge is our number one priority. Our incompetence in education and communication has had, and is still having, devastating effects to ourselves and to our planet. The degradation is extremely alarming.

Education Reform Knowledge Base

The main issue when communicating information and knowledge is that it needs to be delivered in many different ways so that everyone has a chance to understand the information and knowledge. You need to use multiple Teaching Methods and communicate information using text, videos, images, sound and any other forms of communication that people respond to. The next thing would be is to make the information and knowledge easy to navigate through, so that anyone can self direct themselves through all the information and knowledge and ultimately find the knowledge and information that they are looking for. Then you would have to establish different levels of understanding for all ages so that you accommodate all the different age groups. Starting from child birth all the way up to the elderly years. The next thing would be is to create accurate testing methods to measure a persons understanding of the knowledge and give people the ability to test themselves and evaluate their own performance and progress. The next step is to make sure that the knowledge and information is being updated so that it stays current. You also have to make sure that the teaching methods and the testing methods would also be updated and improved continually so that our learning and teaching potential is inline with our understanding of our world and our future.

I care about kids, so I always give children the attention they need, and they appreciate the attention because they like it when people listen to them, and I will never stop listening because Kids are the most important people in the world, they are our future. So why do some parents stop listening to their children? Is it because they never learned how to hear and listen effectively? Listening takes more than empathy, it takes knowledge of human life and knowledge of the world around us. You
can't hear what you don't understand. And you will never understand what you don't know unless you learn. Learning is a responsibility that needs to be put into practice every single day of our lives. A day without learning is another day wasted and
another opportunity lost. When you stop learning, your growth and development is impeded, and you will never understand more about yourself or the world around you. You will be in a suspended animation of bewilderment. There is no logical reason to stop learning, none.

Main Goals

Education Initiative - Academic Imperative - Call to Action Message
Create a Complete School Education that includes approximately 20,000 hours worth of the world's best educational courses, lessons, knowledge, information, instructional videos, images and sound. Starting with Child Development, K-12 and College Level Courses. The complete education will be available in the form of software so that it can be distributed on flash drives that will run on any computer or Smartphone. This complete education will also be available on the Internet. This way any teacher or parent can start educating children wherever they are, without the need for books. People could also educate themselves in their own time and in their own chosen environment, as well as test themselves and evaluate their performance and progress anytime. This complete education will also be made available on Specialized Laptops so that teachers, parents and students can use it to educate themselves and others. Each specialized laptop will come with it's own customized teacher avatar. So that in the absence of a teacher or parent a child can have a personal connection with their teacher avatar so they will not feel alone while they are on their own personal learning journey. And if the laptop has access to the Internet then each child will also have access to tutors, teachers, mentors and 24 hour Assistance. This way a students learning experience will not be impeded or disrupted in any way. Teachers could also improve their teaching methods by observing instructional videos from the world's greatest teachers. This will not replace schools or teachers. This will only provide more options and choices and bring more education to more people, which would ultimately relieve the stresses that are produced by an undereducated society. I have already been working on this project for over 5 years as of 2008. I have collected and categorized a large amount of the worlds best knowledge and information. I have also been researching teaching methods and other areas of education. I now have a better understanding of the potential of education as well as its purpose. I have all my research and data available on this website. This way anyone can review the data that I have created and also educate themselves in many areas of knowledge that are listed and organized. And as the courses and lessons are being created people can make suggestions on how a particular course should be taught and learned.

Making intelligence easy and rewarding

You don't have to know everything, but there are some things that you should know, things that will benefit you, things that will give you more abilities, things that will give more potential. But in order for a person to get the most from knowledge and information, a person needs to learn the right things at the right time, and in the most efficient way possible. First you have to know how much information and knowledge is available, and then you have to know the value of this knowledge and information. Then you need to calculate the order in which this knowledge and information should be learned.

This should be the goal of every school on the planet. "Since 2008, I have spent the last nine years gathering valuable information and knowledge, and then organizing and categorizing that information and knowledge into a website called Basic Knowledge 101.com. The goal is to create a complete high quality education curriculum that will develop students into highly intelligent people. People who will be prepared for the challenges of life by having the necessary skills and knowledge to solve every problem on the planet, as well as, live productive and happy lives. BK101 will become the most highly advanced education curriculum in the world, using the most highly advanced teaching and learning methods that are known to date. BK101 will become the new standard for education, teaching and learning. And that is the plan, but I know that any other school can do the same thing that I'm doing, so we will have to see who designs the best curriculum." Lets make a competition to see who can create the most intelligent students on the planet.

Education Purpose
This is what we know

"The goal is to provide students, teachers, parents and the general public with all the necessary information and knowledge that is currently missing from the worlds current education system. You'll be amazed how much you don't know and how much you should know."

If we educate our young correctly and fully, they will never find themselves having to say this statement that everyone says today....

"I wish I knew then what I know now "

Open Source Education with Open Source Curriculum Simultaneous Subject Teaching

What is needed: Teachers, Programmers, Parents, Students, Curriculum Designers, Researchers, Operating Expenses. There are already large amounts of video lessons on the Internet that can be used. But many of these video lessons need improvements and many more video lessons are needed. We also need to create easy to follow lessons in writing using multiple teaching methods. We also need to create the best and the most effective testing system that confirms that the knowledge and information is fully understood and that the information can also be verified by applying this knowledge to real life situations. Education needs to be seen as a whole, and understood as a whole. It is the foundation that will provide the necessary knowledge and skills for any person to pursue any career, any goal, any dream or any form of higher education. So this is extremely important to say the least.

Mission Statement

To be Proactive in Defining what Information and Knowledge is needed that would help create The Perfect Education, and then find ways to communicate this information so that everyone understands and comprehends the true intentions of Knowledge. BK101 will continually find new ways to improve education by continually defining What Information and Knowledge should be learned, How it should be learned, When it should be learned, and Why it should be learned. We will continually update Basic Knowledge 101 Education Resources and Information Knowledge Database so that everyone can learn about all the great ideas for improving education, as well as create new ideas of their own. Improving and expanding teaching methods and curriculum is just the beginning, and this is only a small piece of the process in human evolution. Education on Demand is the future. We will always have Schools, but everyone will also have choices, Alternatives and personal methods. It is extremely important that every child have access to the best Learning Environment that benefits them the most. The Road to Knowledge has to be open to everyone. Teaching needs to be a Teamwork effort. Education is a science, we need to speed it up and clean it up with 21st century skills without overscheduled overload. The Quality of the Core Curriculum is everything. No more Dumbing Down the Standards. Teaching should not be based on just standards, especially Outdated Standards. Teaching methods should be based on human potential. Education purpose and the End Result have to be defined. We have to Prepare Students for Reality. The world today is filled with incredible challenges and problems, problems that need solving. If you are not fully educated you will be vulnerable to dangers and unable to manage the stresses of the 21st century. The world has accumulated a tremendous amount of information and knowledge. If a student is going to be prepared for life, they need this information and knowledge, and they need to learn how to use it effectively and efficiently.

Remember, I'm just one of many curators who's organizing valuable knowledge and information, knowledge that has been generated by millions of people over many years. I do add my own personal observations, knowledge and experiences, but it is a small percentage of the total knowledge and information that this website is connected to. So I'm just one of the millions of others who have contributed to our most valuable resource called knowledge.  "I don't know everything, I'm just trying to know as much as I can, and then share it."  Information Quotes

Prepared is the cognitive process of Thinking about what you will do in the event of something happening. The activity of putting or setting in order in advance of some act or purpose. Made ready or fit or suitable beforehand. Activity leading to Skilled Behavior. Undergo Training or instruction in preparation for a particular role, function, or profession. Equipped or prepared with necessary Intellectual Resources. Arrange by systematic planning and united effort. Create by training and teaching.

Simplify is turning Complexity into Simplicity so that understanding can Emerge and Flourish. 
Obvious and Self-Explanatory

Demystify. The goal is to eliminate vagueness and ambiguity and at the same time not limit knowledge to a specific set of values so that knowledge can vary infinitely within a continuum. 

To define but not Limit

Repeating importance without Redundancy.

Operational Definition

Defining Dictionary is a list of words used by lexicographers to write dictionary definitions. The underlying principle goes back to Samuel Johnson's notion that words should be defined using 'terms less abstruse than that which is to be explained', and a defining vocabulary provides the lexicographer with a restricted list of high-frequency words which can be used for producing simple definitions of any word in the dictionary.


Substantial Form asserts that forms (or ideas) organize matter and make it intelligible. Substantial forms are the source of properties, order, unity, identity, and information about objects.

Paradigm Shift is a fundamental change in the basic concepts and experimental practices of a scientific discipline.

Type Conversion are different ways of changing an entity of one data type into another.

Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler. Making things too easy to understand may change what it means." A.E. 

There is always more to knowing. Something's need to be explained in great detail in order to be understood correctly. So something's cannot be simplified because some people can only see what they know. So you must take the time to thoroughly explain to people what is known so they too can know what is known. You never want to assume that people understand what you're saying.

You teach science but you don't use science in your teaching? That's like finding a cure for cancer but not telling anyone. If you can teach Science and Engineering, then you should be able to use Science and Engineering to improve education, otherwise, you are missing extremely important Aspects of Education, and the potential of Learning and Teaching. If the education process and curriculum is not continually improving, then it's not education. 

Applied Science applies existing scientific knowledge to develop more practical applications, like technology or inventions.

Video Courses

Video instructions to teach courses has many benefits. Teaching videos can be interactive by allowing students to pause, rewind, and quickly index a particular timeline in the video. Pausing a video gives a student time to look up more information on the subject so they can have a better chance understanding the knowledge that is being taught. (No need to raise your hand and interrupt the class) Teaching videos can also show educators good teaching techniques so that other teachers can improve their own teaching methods so that every educator can produce effective, explicit and systematic instruction. You can also show more then one Teaching Method so that students can understand which Learning Method works for them and why it works. Teaching videos can also be updated. So when better teaching methods are learned and more information and knowledge is acquired the videos quality and functionality will improve.

Interactive Storytelling is a form of digital entertainment in which the storyline is not predetermined. The self-generated narrative, and its evolution, can be influenced in real-time by the actions of users, either by issuing commands to the story's protagonist, or acting as a general director of events in the narrative. Since the user does not choose the order of predetermined events nor choose from a pre-existing selection of possibilities, Interactive storytelling relies on software that is capable of intelligent behavior, known as artificial intelligence (AI), to create their own storylines.

Interactive Media refers to products and services on digital computer-based systems which respond to the user’s actions by presenting content such as text, moving image, animation, video, audio, and video games.


Audiovisual Education is instruction where particular attention is paid to the audio and visual presentation of the material with the goal of improving comprehension and retention.

Audiovisual means possessing both a sound and a visual component, such as slide-tape presentations, films, television programs, church services and live theater productions.

Interactive Visualization is a branch of graphic visualization in computer science that involves studying how humans interact with computers to create graphic illustrations of information and how this process can be made more efficient.

Face-to-Face Learning from attentive human beings can now be videotaped and shared with millions of people, and not just to teach more people, but to allow more people to give feedback on the validity and the quality of that particular teaching method and the knowledge being presented, so that we can improve teaching methods, while at the same time teach more people.

We need to teach people how to be Self Directed Learners and give people the ability to test and confirm their knowledge when ever they need to. This way people can learn at their own speed and in their own chosen environment. People can also learn using their own Personal Methods so that their learning abilities are not constricted in any way. So first you have to show people what information and knowledge is important and why it is important. Then show them the time in their life when this information and knowledge is best learned. I would not say that we are raising the standards of education, we're just defining the standards.

The Perfect Education is not a Universal Remedy, so several versions will have to be created in order for education to be effective.

Welcome to Basic Knowledge 101: A Collective Intelligent Consensus of Knowledge for the 21st Century Student, Parent and Teacher.  Collective Wisdom

Knowing why you need to learn something is extremely important. You have to know the benefits that a particular piece of knowledge or skill will give you. You also have to know the negative aspects and difficulties that you will face if you do not learn a particular piece of knowledge or learn a particular skill. And once a person fully understands the benefits of knowledge and the negative results of not having knowledge, 99% of the time a person will chose the path that provides them with the biggest reward.

Starting your education. Preferably you would want your education to start at birth and have accurate documentation about what you were taught and when. The approximate time to finish your Basic Knowledge 101 education would depend on your current level of knowledge and your test results that confirm a complete understanding of the knowledge. There will be no Grading. That is why Accurate Testing Methods are extremely important.

Education Purpose

How Much Time would it take the average person to learn everything that there is in a Complete High Quality Education?

It's knowing What to Learn, When to Learn it, How to Learn it, and Why you need to Learn it?
Having the correct amount of knowledge and skills gives a person more potential, more value, more choices and more possibilities in their life. The things you could achieve will seem endless. There are numerous advantages to having particular knowledge and skills, so it only makes sense to know which particular knowledge and skills are the most important? Knowledge and skills are the building blocks of your life. The stronger your foundation the more you can build upon and grow.

Logically-Ordered Steps

Learning the most valuable knowledge in the correct sequence.

Learning is done in Stages, with each Stage Preparing you for the Next Stage of Skills, Knowledge and Information. Incremental, logically-ordered steps, integrating each new concept with a review of those already mastered. Implementing the correct Education at the correct time and sequence using multiple mediums to coincide with the brains development and the brains ability to comprehend. 

Child Development Milestones

Developing an Idea
DNA - Instructions in Sequence
Linear Learning - Organized

In order to understand something new, you need a certain amount of knowledge and information that will help you to understand something new. There are always prerequisites when learning new things. If you learn something new without fully understanding it, then you could misuse this new knowledge and make costly mistakes. That is why it is so important to learn the right things at the right time. You need knowledge and information if you want to benefit from knowledge and information. And if you lack knowledge and information, then you will not benefit from it, and you will also be vulnerable because you don't know something that you should know.

Prerequisite is something that is required in advance. Required as a prior condition or course of study. In education, a course or topic that must be completed before another course or topic can be started. It's good to have some previous knowledge and experience on a particular subject before you begin learning a new subject, especially when it will help you understand the new subject mush easier and also help you to retain the information much easier.

Coherent is something marked by an orderly, logical, and aesthetically consistent relation of parts. Capable of thinking and expressing yourself in a clear and consistent manner. Cause and Effect

Sequence is a serial arrangement in which things follow in logical order or a recurrent pattern, an enumerated collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed. The same elements can appear multiple times at different positions in the sequence.

Serial is in regular succession without gaps or relating to the sequential performance of multiple operations. Pertaining to or occurring in or producing a series.

Series is similar things placed in order or happening one after another at scheduled times. Electronics

Train is a sequentially ordered set of things or events or ideas in which each successive member is related to the preceding.

Succession is the following of one thing after another in time. A group of people or things arranged or following in order. Succession in ecology is the gradual and orderly process of change in an ecosystem brought about by the progressive replacement of one community by another until a stable climax is established.

Operations is a process or series of acts especially of a practical or mechanical nature involved in a particular form of work. A planned activity involving many people performing various actions. Calculation by mathematical methods.

Ordered is having a systematic arrangement; especially having elements succeeding in order according to rule. Marked by an orderly, logical, and aesthetically consistent relation of parts. Bring into conformity with rules or principles or usage; impose regulations. Arrange thoughts, ideas, temporal events.

Order of Precedence is a sequential hierarchy of nominal importance of items.

Precondition is a condition or predicate that must always be true just prior to the execution of some section of code or before an operation in a formal specification. If a precondition is violated, the effect of the section of code becomes undefined and thus may or may not carry out its intended work. Security problems can arise due to incorrect preconditions. Often, preconditions are simply included in the documentation of the affected section of code. Preconditions are sometimes tested using guards or assertions within the code itself, and some languages have specific syntactic constructions for doing so.

Time Management (Prioritizing Value Scheduling)

"Avoiding too much too soon, and too little too late."

Erikson Stages of Psychosocial Development identifies a series of eight stages, in which a healthy developing individual should pass through from infancy to late adulthood. Each stage builds upon the successful completion of earlier stages.

Sequence Learning is inherent to human ability because it is an integrated part of conscious and nonconscious learning as well as activities. The order in which material is presented can strongly influence what is learned, how fast performance increases, and sometimes even whether the material is learned at all.” Sequence learning, more known and understood as a form of explicit learning, is now also being studied as a form of implicit learning as well as other forms of learning. Sequence learning can also be referred to as sequential behavior, behavior sequencing, and serial order in behavior. PDF

Sequence Learning is more or less a guide to help aid learning. The main focus is that you learn to learn, correctly, effectively and efficiently.

Sequence Alignment is a way of arranging the sequences of DNA, RNA, or protein to identify regions of similarity that may be a consequence of functional, structural, or evolutionary relationships between the sequences.

Outdated Knowledge Sequence from K-8 (PDF)

Memory Consolidation is when existing memories are recalled and modified with new knowledge.

Supertask is a countable infinite sequence of operations that occur sequentially within a finite interval of time.

Working with students to Develop their next Learning Steps

Learning the right things at the right time.

You might not understand something the first time you read it, but you will eventually. Sometimes you need to read something else that helps you understand a particular passage that you have read before in the past. So now when you read that same passage again, you understand it and see it more clearly. You may read an entire book or watch a movie, but years from now, after you have spent time learning and increasing your knowledge of yourself and the world around you, now that book or movie will reveal different meanings that you never noticed before. We need to do this type of learning more often. We need to keep learning and keep reviewing old knowledge and experiences so that they are more clearly understood, and also help us to avoid recalling false memories.

Language and Words Shapes our Thoughts

The brain works in Layers, and so should Learning. The Brain Develops in Stages thus Information and Knowledge has to be inputted in a particular order that coincides with brain development. To put it simply, you have to learn how to walk before you can learn how to run. Most academic courses are already created in steps so that the student is introduced to new knowledge in increments so that the information can be understood. That's one of the reasons for Prerequisites. You need Knowledge in order to acquire and understand new Knowledge. And there are no shortcuts. If you leave out certain information and knowledge you will always struggle to understand and interpret new information and new knowledge, and not be able to correctly and effectively apply the knowledge you have. You will also be unaware of new knowledge and new information even when it's right in front of you. You will become a victim of your own ignorance. And if you never become aware of your ignorance you will never be able to correctly self analyze yourself in order to correct it. This is why having an effective and comprehensive education is so extremely important.

You can't understand something if you don't have the knowledge and the information that is needed to accurately understand it. It's like hearing another language for the first time that you never heard before, you will never understand what people are telling you unless you learn the language they're speaking. And this problem is the same for all knowledge and all information, you can't fully understand something when you know very little about it. Like meeting a person for the very first time. This is the major problem plaguing every school on the planet. Education will never be effective or efficient as it can be unless it addresses this reality. You can't be random or fragmented with a persons education, each person is an individual, thus each person needs personalized education.

Misinterpretation is having an inaccurate mental representation of the meaning or significance of something. Not correct; not in conformity with fact or truth.

Learning Methods
Theory and Research-based Principles of Learning

This is not to say that all learning needs to be Linear, because everyone has there own Style of Learning. And you also have to make knowledge and information available in more then one format so that a person can pick and choose what they want to learn and when. Nonlinear Control

"If you don't understand the correct sequence of things to learn, or, understand the relation certain information has to other information and skills, then full understanding will not be achieved." Fragmented

"When you learn the right things at the right time, then knowledge accumulates and you become wiser. But if you learn things randomly in fragments, then the knowledge does not accumulate effectively. You might remember learning something, but you can't formulate that knowledge effectively, so you will not benefit from that knowledge as much as you should."

When learning something new you have to ask these questions...
How does this information apply to your current needs? How will this information benefit you right now? When will this information most likely be used? Why will this information most likely be used and How will this information most likely be used? What have you learned so far? What would be the most logical thing to learn next based on your current knowledge and current needs?

Education Purpose

"After all, everybody only hears what he understands." ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832, German poet and Nature philosopher

The Human Brain is the most Complex Processer of Information on the Planet. Our ability to Process Information and Store Information, (PC), is what makes us Human. Information Defines us, Information Controls us, Information Teaches us. Know your Processor, understand the Software (Mind), and understand the Hardware (Body). 

Every student must have complete knowledge and understanding of the Human Brain, how the brain works, its vulnerabilities, its strengths, its Structure and Complexities. As you learn about the Human Brain you must also ' Learn how to Learn ' and have a full understanding about all the different Learning Styles and Methods. With learning there are more important elements then Motivation, eagerness, grit and desire. There is something called Method. Motivation comes from the reward that knowledge brings. Meaningful, creative challenges gives a student pride and ownership of their efforts. The ability to learn and the ability to Focus or pay Attention are two different things. Focus and Attention = Learning as long as the student knows how to learn. Motivations and desires are emotions, and emotions are not factors in learning, they are factors of the human condition. We should not be so interested in a students willingness to learn, but more interested in knowing that a student has the ability to learn. Good teaching methods do not require Coercion. If a student is not Interested in Learning then a teacher must find out why. Is it a poor teaching method? Is it because a student never learned how to learn? Is it because a student has already learned this subject? Is it because a student has other priorities? Or Is it because a student has trouble focusing for whatever reason? So before a good teaching method can be applied, does every student have the ability to learn and does every student have the ability to Focus. Being bored or not interested in learning is not an excuse or even a reason not to learn. Either you can learn or you can't learn. So what is the real reason?

Intrinsically Motivated Learning (PDF)

Teaching and Learning is a Science

Learning Sciences interdisciplinary field that works to further scientific understanding of learning as well as to engage in the design and implementation of learning innovations, and the improvement of instructional methodologies.

Comparative Education examines education in one country (or group of countries) by using data and insights drawn from the practices and situation in another country, or countries.

Epistemology is the branch of philosophy concerned with the theory of knowledge.

Exploratory Research is research conducted for a problem that has not been clearly defined. It often occurs before we know enough to make conceptual distinctions or to posit an explanatory relationship.

Quantitative Research is the systematic empirical investigation of observable phenomena via statistical, mathematical or computational techniques.


Teaching and learning needs to be fully engineered so that Learning Management System's can be implemented and improved continuously as time goes on. 

Purposes of Education

Education Articulation (entry testing)

The worlds best Knowledge and information is at your fingertips. Use it or Lose it.
The more you learn the right things at the right time the more you will realize what you did not know. Knowledge gives you the abilities to see farther into your future and farther into your past with greater accuracy and with greater understanding. Knowledge is an endless journey filled with new discoveries at every step. But for now there is no clear direction or order of what needs to be learned and when. And a lot of times you have to learn particular piece knowledge in order to understand why this particular piece of knowledge is important. This is why detailed Explanations are incredibly important.

How long will it take to Finish this Education Project?

The sooner the better, but Anything worth doing takes time.

As I continue my Internet aggregation for Basic Knowledge 101, I will periodically remix the material to match it with online instructions and Define each Subject into categories and easy to learn lessons for every age level. Subject categories and the relationships that are created within these structures will be displayed using links and context. I'm constantly finding a lot of significant innovations that are improving online education. When this knowledge is learned in the right way and at the right time this will eventually help the brain formulate that particular knowledge so that the information can be correctly applied when needed.

What would happen if you fully educated every child? Well, Lets find out...

We need to challenge students with more specialized programs with complex themes and content to help increase spatial reasoning and creative expression. Even though there is considerable amount of structured information on the Internet there is still much more information that needs to be organized. This will require some Knowledge Engineering as well as Reverse Engineering. Having academic freedom when researching will involve some intellectual risk-taking. So there will be mistakes made from time to time, but mistakes can be corrected and learned from so all will not be lost.

Basic Knowledge 101 will have recommended books to read plus other books that a student finds that might have similar knowledge. The Digitizing of Books will allow students and teachers to create their own books of study for each subject by accumulating the best information they found from the books they read. Then from each of those digital creations, from students and teachers, we can combine the best information and create one large Manuscript to share and study from. This manuscript will list all the resources and books that the information was acquired from so that anyone can verify the information and also learn more about why that information was created in the first place.

I'm using Wikipedia a lot because this gives everyone a fair chance to be apart of the Collective Intelligent Consensus. If everyone contributes and helps to verify and manage our knowledge, we will have less Doubt and Confusion, while at the same time, have deeper meanings and Explanations to why certain knowledge is relevant. You also have to remember that Wikipedia is just an introduction to knowledge and that there is always more to learn. There are also Discussions on almost every Wikipedia page, so don't assume that there is no Skepticism. I also use Youtube a lot because this also gives everyone a fair chance to be apart of our education and knowledge. Every school in the world should have a class that examines pages on Wikipedia for accuracy, and make changes or updates if needed. This way students can make their own textbooks and not be subjected to school textbooks with manipulative undertones or narrow-minded points of view that become outdated as soon as you read them.

More about Information Sources

The Question is..."How do you test for that?" Well lets find out......


Testing Yourself

Though testing is not always necessary for learning, testing is still a good tool and an effective method for confirming if a person understands a particular area of knowledge. You can easily test yourself if you can correctly identify the right questions to ask.

Questions must explain why you are asking these particular questions, explain when this knowledge will be used in real life circumstances, explain how this knowledge will be used in real life circumstances, explain where this knowledge will be used in real life circumstances, and confirm that this knowledge is pertaining to a solution to a problem that is effecting society today, something that needs immediate attention that no one else is working on, or, the people who are working on solving the problem are not going about it in the right way, or need help, so intelligent collaboration is needed.

Computerized Learning

The test has to be validated and updated often, and the test also needs to give a full explanation of it's relevance. So the test needs not only answers from the people taking the test, the test also needs questions from the people taking the test. Then students and teachers will discuss the answers and the questions together in class. And then the students who calculated the answers correctly will then help the other students who did not calculate the answers correctly. Then those students will retake those questions that they got wrong. If all testing were to be done this way you would see great improvements in learning, teaching and testing. 

The Problems with School Testing

Every Student will be tested once a year on the decided curriculum, or more if needed. Each test will have different levels depending on the student's age or grade level. Once those students score a 98% on each years testing, then that student will require no further testing on that particular curriculum for the remainder of that year. If the students score is below 98% then they will have to retake the test, but only the answers they got wrong. When they get 98% of those answers correct then they pass to the next level. Each test level will also have some of the same questions as the last test and also ask questions about previous test levels. Not to make the test easy but to verify long term memory and to reinforce key knowledge, or just to update knowledge. The questions will not be exactly the same question but only similar. Testing can be done halfway through the course, or anytime a student wants to be tested.

Some answers will be visible on the website but will not have the persons name. This way answers can be reviewed by a collective combined intelligence of professionals and BK101 graduates. The collective will post their responses to your answers in order to investigate your reasoning, they will not make judgments on your intelligence. People who took the test can then resubmit their answers to show corrections, and why those corrections were made, whether the corrections were the result of feedback, or the result of new information that is now available that was not originally available when the question was first answered.

To Discourage Cheating:
There will be 100 different versions of each test at each level, so Questions and Answers will vary. Since Hand Writing can be Analyzed and Graded, every answer will be hand written, except for special cases. Cheating is a clear sign that the education system is a failure. So you just don't want to discourage cheating, you want to make sure that every student understands that cheating will only hurt them, because failing to fully understand the knowledge and information from BK101 will only decrease their abilities and their potential. So you're just cheating yourself and lowering your chances for a happy and productive life. Of course this cannot be said for the inadequate curriculum that is being taught in todays schools and universities. This is why schools have so much cheating and failures, because the knowledge and information taught in todays schools mostly confirms a persons earning potential, and also their ability to manipulate other people into giving them things that they don't deserve. It doesn't really confirm intelligence, or ability, or morality, or potential. And the saddest part is, that the ones who don't cheat, end up with knowledge and information they may never use effectively. A huge waste.

Each test that will be used to help measure if the recommended knowledge and information is being correctly understood will also be made public. This way any parent or student can measure their progress at any time. The tests being made public will also allow people to help improve the tests as we learn more about the intended results of certain knowledge. Knowledge will be Coded. Reading, Writing, Language and Communication will be of highest importance and so will be tested regularly. Learning about Food and Water. Understanding Ingredients and the Causes and Effects of certain foods and ingredients. Also learning about the importance of Exercise, the Human Body, its Functions, Abilities and Vulnerabilities will also be tested regularly. And of course everything else in Basic Knowledge 101 will be learned at the appropriate time.

Until a full written test is designed that can accurately measure a persons intelligence, I can not be sure where this information will take you. I can only say that from my experience, information and knowledge has made me a lot more aware of my abilities. And I still have much more to learn. Knowledge doesn't happen over night and not everyone understands knowledge the same way. There is no plan for knowledge. There is no guide to knowledge. This is just the beginning.

Basic Knowledge 101 can be taught in a classroom, self-taught online, or offline if the Laptop PC comes fully loaded with all the curriculum including media and audio. Online will most likely be the appropriate media since most schools will not be qualified or capable of implementing this type of knowledge. All questions and answers will be in writing with no multiple choice. This will insure that the student fully knows the answer and is capable of reading and writing, which are the two most important skills to have when it comes to learning. Plus multiple choice is not a true test of knowledge. You either know the answer or you don't. Showing someone the answer is not teaching. This is why schools love Multiple Choice because it raises test scores, which makes it look like the teachers are actually doing their job. Plus cheating or guessing is not easily controlled so test scores are not always accurate.

A Certificate will be given each year and for each category. A final test can be taken anytime a student feels ready. The certification "Basic Knowledge 2014" will signify the year that the student received their certification. This will also help keep track of the specific curriculum that the student has learned. As this particular area of study changes, improves and increases its knowledge base, that student may want to recertify himself or herself with "Basic Knowledge 2016" for example. There will be a test for each year and level. The first test will be for a one year old, which will be very basic. Then each test from two years old through a hundred years old will have more questions and more complex problem solving lessons.

All this knowledge and information may seem overwhelming and seem like there is just to much to learn, but when you have 12 years to learn and understand it, it's really not that much. And 12 years is just the average. For some it will be less than 12 years and others it will be more then 12 years. If children start learning early then most students will know Basic knowledge 101 by the age of 12, which will allow them to begin learning Advanced College Courses, Extra Training and New Skills. Most will complete those courses by the age of 18. This is not to say that your education will be over after 12 years. On the contrary education has no end, only beginnings. In the mean time students may want to take a Sabbatical, Travel or Volunteer in any of the social services they feel would benefit people the most, like Monitoring and Auditing our Failing Systems so that everyone can be aware of the necessary adjustments that we need to make. This is only one example of course of many options and choices. Students may also consider being an editor for Wikipedia.

How much Knowledge is enough and how quickly can I learn it?

Humans are a Brain-Based Species. Our brain is our biggest asset and the ultimate source of our true potential. Remember that saying A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste. More true now then ever, especially knowing that we now know a lot more about how incredibly important knowledge is to a human. To understand this is an Epiphany, something that you will never forget. And it's not just one epiphany, it's many. What are you teaching if you don't know the end result of what you are teaching? It is extremely important to know the end result. You must also be able to confirm that the student understands the end result. Creating a test for this knowledge will be a test in itself. And some of the test is not even a test. It's more of an Evaluation. An evaluation of the test and the student.

You have to know what level you're on and have an accurate way of measuring that level.

The full Education Plan for Basic Knowledge 101 will be in writing. All subjects, courses and teachings will be listed and described in as much detail as possible. An explanation of the intended results, the benefits and the reasons why this knowledge is important and the abilities that will come from learning this knowledge will also be in writing. A Knowledge Timeline will be given to help students understand how much knowledge they need to learn and when they need to learn it. A knowledge timeline will also help anyone who wishes to measure their knowledge skills in a particular area at a different time on which it was intended. Being able to see the first 12 years of your education plan, along with the tests that will be used in measuring your performance, will help anyone to be more aware of the purpose of knowledge and how this knowledge and information will effect their life and their future. Having an education plan will also allow a person to personally apply their own learning methods or even help improve or modify the education plan that is currently being used.

You have to be able to see the whole picture of your education and understand what particular knowledge and information means to a human. You have to see the ways a person benefits from certain knowledge and information and be able to understand the abilities that certain knowledge and information gives to a person. Basic Knowledge 101 will have over 60 subjects of study with numerous subcategories of knowledge and information. And each subject of study will have an explanation of the benefits and abilities of that particular knowledge and information so that the student will know exactly how and why this particular knowledge and information will be used in their everyday life. This will help reduce the wasting of valuable time and avoid students from learning knowledge and information they will never use or use very little.

Public Domain Education Knowledge Database

Parents have to understand that until they expand and improve education, it is up to them to fill this void of knowledge that kids desperately need filled. And if parents never acquired this knowledge themselves then they should learn it together with their children. You have to know what questions to ask. Questions are the keys that open doors to understanding.

"Having open discussions from a parent or educator on subject material is always recommended"

Eventually the majority of Knowledge and information that makes up Basic Knowledge 101 will be learned by the age of 16. That's basically everything on this website and all the pages that Basic Knowledge 101 links to. So if you are over 16 then you will have some catching up to do. Of course testing and lessons will be designed differently for late starters so that you will not be overwhelmed. Your age and your skill level of understanding will determine your starting point as well as the level of difficulty.

Teachers Pledge to Students

I Promise to Bestow Everything that I Know, and what we don't know, we will learn together.

And then the Teacher would ask each Student before they begin to teach a course...May I be your Teacher?

Teachers Duty: Transfer the most valuable knowledge, provide the facts, not opinions. A students biggest takeaway should be a better understanding and greater awareness. Students should never be subjected to disinformation or irrelevant, unrelated knowledge that is easily forgotten because it is not immediately applicable or associated. That is a huge waste of time, resources and potential, things this world cannot afford to lose anymore.

Basic Knowledge 101 - Name Creation

Basic BK101 Diploma Sample Idea
Serving as a base or starting point / providing the Foundation for something. The simplest and most significant form possible without loss of generality. Basis: A relation that provides the foundation for something. The fundamental assumptions from which something is begun or developed or calculated or explained. The most important or necessary part of something.

Foundation is education or instruction in the fundamentals of a field of knowledge. The foundation necessary for advanced study. The basis on which something is grounded. The fundamental assumptions from which something is begun or developed or calculated or explained. The act of starting something for the first time; introducing something new. Lowest support of a Structure.  

Structure is a thing constructed; a complex entity constructed of many parts. The manner of construction of something and the arrangement of its parts. The complex composition of knowledge as elements and their combinations. A particular complex anatomical part of a living thing. The people in a society considered as a system organized by a characteristic pattern of relationships.

Constructing is to create by linking linguistic units. Create by organizing and linking ideas, arguments, or concepts. Reassemble mentally. Matrix

Soon we will have our foundation. But not the kind of foundation that's an institution supported by an endowment, a real foundation, a foundation that is supported by millions of people, built by millions of people, and used by millions of people.

BK101 is your base knowledge. It's not all the knowledge that you need, but it's enough knowledge to give you an adequate understanding of yourself and the world around you, as well as, the skills needed to acquire more knowledge and become even more intelligent as time goes on.

One of the most important benefits of having a good Base Knowledge is that it gives you the ability to ask better questions, and at the same time, it gives you the ability to understand the answers, thus increasing your chances of solving a particular problem. If you don't even know what questions to ask, then you will never find the answers, or will you have the ability to solve a problem.

Ignorance is a Prison. The only way out of this prison is to learn your way out. So what would you like to learn today? Basic Knowledge 101>

"Ignorance is a Prison. The only way out of this prison is to learn your way out. And the only way to know that you are even out of this prison is to get beyond the invisible bars. The invisible bars that you had no idea were even there. And these bars are holding you back and keeping you from realizing your true potential. Waking up is not just something you do after you have been sleeping, waking up is also something you do when you finally realize that you were never fully awake." - Keep Learning My Friends.

Learning how to Read is like receiving the Key to the prison cell that you're in, but the key will only work when you read the right things at the right time. Language is the key to unlock the door to your Prison, but you're not even aware of this prison that you are in or do you have any idea that this prison even exists. You will only be able to see this prison when you learn what it is and how the lack of language and knowledge kept you from seeing and understanding yourself and the world around you.

A Life Sentence is a mind that stops learning... Never Stop Learning.

Advanced Basic Knowledge 101

Future Concepts for Advanced Knowledge 101

The Human Operating System (HOS) will consist of all the disciplines in Basic Knowledge 101 as well as a Conceptual Framework made up of Thought Processes, Thinking Styles, Learning Styles, Inductive Reasoning, Abductive Reasoning, Deductive Reasoning and Cognitive Abilities to help increase the capacity to think logically about the relationships among concepts and situations and to justify and ultimately prove the correctness of a Mathematical Procedure or assertion, which is just another way of saying that you will be more intelligent, more aware, and more capable of solving any problem.

Conceptual Framework is an analytical tool with several variations and contexts. It is used to make conceptual distinctions and organize ideas. Strong conceptual frameworks capture something real and do this in a way that is easy to remember and apply.

Human Operating System Basics
Systems Science
Programmable Logic Controller

When installing a new software into a computer you have to know the operating system and the Processing Ability of that computer. When teaching a new subject to a person you have to know the persons current level of knowledge as well as their ability to understand or process new knowledge.

"Zero's & One's"  "On or Off"

Everything in Life is Coded, so will be Learning.

Knowledge Visualization

Like numbering the pages in a book. Knowing what page you are on makes you aware of how many pages led you to this point and how many pages will bring you to a conclusion or next step. Knowing where the information originated from and where the information will lead you.

Coding - Organizing

Code is a set of rules or principles or laws (especially written ones). A coding system used for transmitting information. The symbolic arrangement of data or instructions in a computer program or the set of such instructions.
Knowledge Management

Data is a collection of facts from which conclusions may be drawn. An item of factual information derived from measurement or research. Data Knowledge

Our education should mimic the process of DNA. Knowledge given in the correct sequence and in the correct environment. Timing is everything. If you can measure something then you can determine the correct sequence for its application. Measuring also helps create structure and helps increase our understanding of resources so that we can have better control and produce less waste and inflict less damage to ourselves and our environment. Cellular Communication

Education should be similar to DNA Repair, if it's not, then you are guaranteeing Cell Death.   Transcription Genetics
mRNA, or messenger RNA, sends messages within cells telling them which actions to take, such as which proteins to code.

Learning Methods

Double-Helix Molecules that are encoded in every plant, animal and microbe on planet Earth, can be used to preserve our data for thousands of years. The coding language of nature is very similar to the binary language we use in computers. On hard drives, we use zeros and ones to represent data. DNA uses four chemical bases (A,T, C and G), strung together like rungs on a sugar-phosphate ladder. It’s got four letters instead of two numbers, but both systems can store endlessly complex permutations of information. Computer hard drive's might last about 50 years. DNA can last for hundreds to thousands of years, and in cold storage, they might end up lasting tens of thousands, perhaps even millions of years. If we can encode DNA with text, and be able to label specific bits, we could create a searchable DNA-based archive. A microscopic droplet of DNA can hold the complete “instruction book, billions upon billions of letters, for thousands of organisms. A fraction of an ounce of DNA could store more than 300,000 terabytes of information.

Data-storage for eternity, stored in the form of DNA

We now have more words and more ways to express them then ever before. Words have the ability to shape the human mind. Words are the Machine Code of the brain where they are translated into Zero’s and Ones so that the Synapse knows when to fire and when to create more Connections and more Associations. The meanings behind the words are like the binary code of a computer. A Computer needs binary code in order to operate, the human needs to know the meaning of words in order to operate.

Computer Knowledge

Our Information Distributing System is dysfunctional and corrupt, so much so that it is hindering the learning abilities of people all over the world. This is the main reason why we have so many problems. Our mission is to restore the information distributing system back to its natural state in which it was intended.

Information Literacy - Media Literacy

Memory Capacity of the Human Brain

"If you say that some peoples brains are wired differently, then why don't we teach people how to wire the human brain correctly?"

Everything on this planet that is alive today is a direct result of information being passed forward and shared with the next generation of its species. This process has been around for 100's of millions of years, it's called Self-Replication, and Humans are not exempt from this fact. If humans want to survive they need to fully understand what information and knowledge is important for survival, and then disseminate this knowledge using education. Examples of information being passed forward through out history...In the Evolution of animals Gene information accumulated from the environment must be pass forward to their offspring so that its species can adapt accordingly to the world in which they live. In Seeds the ability of plants to survive is a direct result of important information gathered from the environment from previous generations. In Cell Division the genomic information which is stored in chromosomes must be replicated in order to live. The only way early humans survived was by learning from older humans who had the skills and the knowledge needed to survive and thrive. Instincts can only get you so far. The rest has to be Learned, manually and over time.

Self-Replication is any behavior of a dynamical system that yields construction of an identical copy of itself. Biological cells, given suitable environments, reproduce by cell division. During cell division, DNA is replicated and can be transmitted to offspring during reproduction.

Replication (computing) in computing involves sharing information so as to ensure consistency between redundant resources, such as software or hardware components, to improve reliability, fault-tolerance, or accessibility.

Digital Physics is a collection of theoretical perspectives based on the premise that the universe is describable by information. According to this theory, the universe can be conceived of as either the output of a deterministic or probabilistic computer program, a vast, digital computation device, or mathematically isomorphic to such a device.

Building Blocks of Life

Materialism is a form of philosophical monism which holds that matter is the fundamental substance in nature, and that all phenomena, including mental phenomena and consciousness, are results of material interactions.

Humans are Self-Replicating Machines that survive by transmitting Vital Code. It’s the way that everything on this planet has survived, evolved and adapted for 100's of millions of years by Passing on Important Information and knowledge to the next generation so that the next generation will have a better chance surviving. But there is only so much information that a species can input into its genes. The rest of the information has to be manually inputted from the environment. And Humans are dependent on this manually inputted information. The Brain Develops in Stages thus Information and Knowledge has to be Inputted in a particular order that coincides with brain development. You have to Write the Code in explicate detail so that the computer brain can understand it and use this information and knowledge correctly...And always have a Back Up Plan and always Update what you know. (Perpetuate).

Backing up Information (knowledge preservation)

Danny Hillis: Back to the Future of 1994 (video) 

If you don't provide any Input you will not see any output...Good Input + Good Processing = Good Output.

BIOS is an acronym for Basic Input/Output System which is a type of firmware used to perform hardware initialization during the booting process (power-on startup) on IBM PC compatible computers, and to provide runtime services for operating systems and programs. The BIOS firmware is built into personal computers (PCs), and it is the first software they run when powered on. The name itself originates from the Basic Input/Output System used in the CP/M operating system in 1975. Originally proprietary to the IBM PC, the BIOS has been reverse engineered by companies looking to create compatible systems and the interface of that original system serves as a de facto standard.

The Natural Progress of information is being interfered with, and Humans must fix these errors and restore the Natural Progression of Information. It is what it is, we need it to live, and that is a fact. Is the information directing us or are we directing the information? Both, after all that would be the natural progression. It seems like information figured it out, that in order for information to survive it would have to have the ability to fix errors manually. But this freedom has it's vulnerabilities.
Information is a Natural Progression, Why?...Information is vital to every human being, Why?

The only way to know is to Learn Why information is vital? What? Where? When? Who? How?

It's all about the information, we depend on it, and it depends on us. Symbiosis

"I'm just following the information, after all, it's the reason why every living thing on this planet has survived and evolved for 100's of millions of years. Life is like a Self Sustaining
Self Perpetuating Chain Reaction, so should Learning."

Independent Learning

"I'm just doing what life has been doing for millions of years since the beginning, gathering information about my environment and then sharing it with future generations. After all, it's one of the main reasons why life even exists, and it will also be the main reason that life will continue to exist and survive long after I'm gone." 

"As evolution has taught us, soon you will understand, if not, then soon you will die."

"I'm moving forward many different areas of knowledge all at once, and each step I take is being documented."

"If you follow information correctly it should be pretty much self-explanatory and self-directing."

"It's not just that the information from the past is pushing me forward, It's also the information from the future pulling me forward. A quest to know is fueled by what is known."

"I'm not sure if I chose to collect and organize information and knowledge, or if knowledge and information chose me?

"There's more to this thing we call Time."

"Everything in the universes is in a way an expression of information"

It takes around 12 years to successfully install the Human Operating System. If you do not install the HOS correctly the user will experience Processing Errors, and most of these Processing Errors will go unnoticed and undetected. 

Human Reliability

In order to have full control and acquire a high sense of awareness of yourself and the world you need the correct information and knowledge at the right time and then have a full understanding of how to use this information and knowledge correctly. And to assure quality, you need to test that this information and knowledge is being understood at every step of the way for at least the first 12 years of your life. Knowing how to learn and to keep learning is crucial, but more important, knowing what to learn and when to learn it is critical. Timeline of Operating Systems shows that the development the HOS will take some time. And observing the processes used to help create Artificial Intelligence also shows that the development of the HOS will take some time. 

What will be that perfect line of Digital Life Code?   Waiting for an update to my status....

This is all for now, this is just the beginning....
