Very young children lived in a technology free nursery where they learn to familiarize themselves with their physical bodies. They also learned how to manipulate objects in the physical environment.
After they have sufficient mastery of the physical world and their body, they go to kindergarten where they enter a limited version of virtual reality. Here, they familiarize themselves with life in different bodies – human bodies, animal bodies and imaginary bodies.
They will also learn how to mold the virtual reality environment, such as materializing, moving and altering objects using their thoughts. They explore and experience the 5 senses in this environment. A few months of training later, they are busily building their very own “mindscapes” to share with other people.
After graduating from kindergarten, they undertake the “School of Humanity”, whose curriculum traces the evolution of Humanity from nomadic individuals to tribes to city states to the Industrial Age to the Space Civilization.
In this school, students learn by experiencing history, starting from the very beginning and progressing with human evolution. At the beginning of each level, each student sits down with his (or her) guardian-teacher and they review the different kinds of life in the different civilizations that they are interested in. They also review the kind of character and challenges they like to have. Together with the other students, they enter their chosen civilization in Virtual Reality in a pseudo-dream state to live as the characters they sought to learn from.
To learn about the Theory of Relativity, they could become Albert Einstein. To learn about warfare, they fought as generals and foot soldiers in the wars ranging from the Roman times to modern Iraqi. They experienced tribal life. They lived among the people of the various ancient civilizations. They established careers in the industrial 20th century. They participated in the building of the Space Cities.
By the time they graduate from this school, they have lived as queens and slaves, as rich merchants and filthy beggars, as the conquerors and conquered. They have worshipped many different religions and died many times fighting for different ideologies and leaders. They have experienced life living in different cultures, as different races, speaking different languages. Having seen the Big Picture of Humanity’s evolution, they vow never to repeat the mistakes of their ancestors again.
