8,00 BCE that is the time most intellectuals believe literacy entered the Humans toolbox. Literacy has made the largest impact on the world and the known universe. It is through literacy that man has been able to map out unknown worlds, explore the worlds and through recording the worlds make them known to fellow humans who have never been too or seen these worlds. It is through literacy that humans have gained and applied knowledge and it is this knowledge that has created the “arc of the moral universe”. Martin Luther King Jr. used the idea of the “moral arc” in his speech in Washington, but it was Theodore Parker who brought the idea of the moral arc of the universe into being. Basically as humans grow and learn the “moral arc” (which encompass humanities laws and actions towards everyone and everything) bend towards justice. This has been proven over time to be true. Despite the nostalgia we hear from our fathers and mothers we are living in a wonderful time right now and our children will live in an even more wonderful time.

My girlfriend however reminded me that if we do not learn and teach the wonderful times may not last forever. This is the part of my post where I tie in the title. Read as much as you can. When you read the works of the brillant you become brilliant. Through reading you can be anyone go anywhere and learn everything!

Write often. Writing is a great therapy and it teaches us how to better express ourselves. Do the math and add up everything. Nothing is truly random.

“Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality. ”

Richard Courant

Here in the United States for school systems that still have a summer break, we are entering summer break time. I encourage the children this summer to Read, Write, Add and repeat. Parents aunts and uncles your example speaks much more loudly than any of your words, so I encourage us to do the same.

peace
