Vision is what's lacking

Unfortunately, human consciousness seems to have taken a U-turn. Well, in any event, our capacity for THINKING. These days, good luck if students can follow a train of thought longer than two or three sentences. Thanks to teacher ed, teachers are taught they need to break everything down into "bytes" of information; teachers are also expected to "dumb down" their vocabulary (not that, these days, I'm saying that's much of a challenge for many). We keep "lowering the bar." We're spiraling down and down and down... at least here in America!

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
