Since I was young, I was always told to work hard at school because achieving good grades leads to financial success. Besides financial prosperity, I was always told that academic education will make me exceptionally intelligent.
However, when I grew up and started studying successful and highly intelligent individuals, I realized that academic education did not play any role in making people intelligent or successful.
Also, I discovered the disastrous effects that academic education has had on people.
Therefore, in today’s article, I will provide the 5 main implications of academic education that make me doubt if it’s necessary for our progress in life.
- Academic Education Prepares us to be Workers and Not Entrepreneurs
Academic education prepares us to work for other people for the rest of our lives. Teachers always told us that getting a high-paying job is the only path to prosperity. Therefore, we often struggled to get high grades so that we become employees and not employers.
- Academic Education Makes Us to Have a Wrong Interpretation of Intelligence
Schools results in people having a wrong definition of intelligence. It makes people who fail in school think that they are unintelligent while it makes those who succeed in academic tests think they are intelligent individuals.
However, school does not make you intelligent. It only makes you an intellectual. An intellectual is an individual who can read, memorize, and understand things, while an intelligent person is he who has the ability to reason, and find solutions to all types of problems. Success in life requires intelligence and not intellectuality.
With this in mind, I believe that we all have the ability to prosper because we are all intelligent. However, school made some people believe that they are fools and they cannot prosper in life just because they failed to get good grades.
- Academic Education Teaches us to Never Think Outside of the Box
Life requires us to always think creatively: to think outside the box. However, academic education made us to always think according to specific rules. We had to think the way the teachers and the books wanted us to think, and we were awarded low grades for thinking outside the box.
- Academic Education Kills Talents
All Children are Born Artists: The Problem is to Remain Artists Till They Grow Up- Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973)
Academic education has destroyed billions of talents. School made us believe that our talents won’t make us successful, because the only way we could achieve success is by succeeding in our exams and getting a job.
This idea has killed great footballers, painters, and writers, because it made children to avoid building their talents, and concentrate on memorizing useless words like ‘Panthera Leo, and ‘Aegyptopithecus.’ I wonder why we spent so much time learning these things yet we never apply them in real life. Can someone please tell me how knowing the ‘Panthera Leo’ has helped him gain happiness, inner peace, or achieve success?
I wonder how I came to believe that knowing about the, ‘aegyptopithecus’ is more important than my talent or God-given abilities.
- Academic Education Makes us to Fear Making Mistakes
School made us fear making mistakes because we were awarded low grades or whipped for providing wrong answers.
However, entrepreneurs like Robert Kiyosaki teach that for us to be successful entrepreneurs, we must embrace making mistakes because we learn from them.
Moreover, life is a matter of experimenting. For us to be successful we have to try-out various methods/ways so that we pinpoint those that work for us. Therefore, making mistakes is unavoidable if we want to advance in life. However, according to school, making mistakes is bad, and punishable at times.

Who the Fuck Are the Illuminati/Elite?
For years, I have studied the Illuminati and I respect them for only one thing. They are fuckin geniuses. These guys have cleverly hidden many things from us and they have managed to make the public behave and think the way they want. I always wonder what enables them to succeed in doing so.
They designed schools to teach us shit and make us believe that people should waste half of their lives in school so that they work in jobs they hate. They lied to us that we must work till we retire then enjoy life after retirement when we are too old to have sex. Besides this, they made us believe that material goods are more important than everything else and tricked us into believing that spirituality is nonsense. Lastly, they put politicians to lead us and made us believe that these people have our interests at heart.
Some people claim that The Illuminati succeed in controlling us because they are magicians. These folks claim that the Illuminati know how to work with the universal energy to trick us into doing what they want.
Others argue that they are intelligent shape-shifting reptilians. According to this theory, the Illuminati usually shape-shift into the politicians that rule us today. However, some folks claim that the Illuminati are ordinary people who work with evil forces to control the world and others argue that the Illuminati are superior to us because they have historical information that most of us don’t possess.
This historical information the Illuminati are believed to possess reveals the true history of human beings and teaches people how to awaken the power hidden within them. Some historians claim that ancient men were highly connected to the Universal Intelligence and Nature and they were highly intelligent. They also claim that there are many hidden historical artifacts which prove that ancient men conducted X-rays, brain surgeries, and built huge buildings without using modern technology. For this reason, ancient men are believed to be extremely intelligent beings, and therefore, those who have access to their ways of living become highly intelligent.
Any of the above theories about the Illuminati might be true, and all of them might be false. However, regardless of what people theorize about the Illuminati, what is clear and true is that the Illuminati are rich and powerful folks who know something about the world and humanity that we don’t know. They work day and night and they use billions of dollars to distract us from knowing this hidden truth.
They know that we might discover this hidden truth and know who we truly are if they don’t distract us with the media, school, jobs, and many other weapons of mass distraction. They don’t want us to discover our true nature because they know that we might demand an equal share of the world’s resources if we awaken, realize our true magical powers and know that we have been fooled.
I also think the Illuminati might be powerful mystics who are preventing us from knowing how powerful we are because the world might become chaotic if everybody knows their true powers and what they can do with them.
But what if the Illuminati is bullshit and it doesn’t exist. Maybe we are tricked to believe that the Illuminati exists but it’s just a useless, stupid idea meant to distract us. Or maybe the Illuminati is real, but it’s a name given to the earth-bound satanic forces that want humanity to suffer all their lives.
And what if what they are hiding from us is not really hidden because we can still gain access to the universal wisdom and know all there is to know. What are your opinions about the elite?

What Nature Teaches Us about Hard Times and Good Times
I am a great fan of wildlife documentaries – especially those produced by Sir David Attenborough– because they teach me a lot about life. For instance, last week as I was watching a documentary about The Great Savannah I learned something valuable about difficult times and good times.
From the documentary, I realized that hard times and good times are part of life and so we must embrace the hard times whether we like it or not. However, what I mainly realized was that hard times always come to an end, and they are never that hard because there is always something to keep us moving during these times. The Creator never takes everything away during the difficult times because he needs our survival since he expresses himself through us.
In the Great Savannah, almost all animals suffer during the dry season because grass dries. Herbivores suffer because they rely on grass, and some of them die and others migrate. When the herbivores die or migrate, the carnivores also suffer because their food reduces in great quantities. Besides grass drying, the water also dries hence making it difficult for animals to find water and the only sources of water left become dangerous places since all animals including dangerous animals such as buffaloes, lions, and elephants compete for the little water left.
However, the good thing is that, in this dry season, there is always some food and water – even though it’s little – that enables the animals to survive. If the dry season wiped out everything in the Savannah then all animals could have died. However, the Creator cannot let all animals die because they are his physical expression. For this reason, he ensures that there is some little water and grass left for the animals to survive the dry season.
Similarly, we must know that when hard times come in our lives, there is always hope because there is always something to keep us moving. The universe never takes everything away during these times, and therefore we must not fear hard times.
Besides this, I also realized that when hard times come, they always pavé way for the good times. In the Savannah, the dry season enables bushfires to occur. These bushfires burn dead and old grass to pavé way for the growth of young, greener plants that will feed animals during the wet season.
Nature, therefore, teaches us that difficult times are necessary because they pavé way for good times. In my life, I have observed that hard times prepare us for good times because they make us see things differently and inspire us to go after what we really want in life.
Moreover, when watching the documentary, I realized that the rains always come when the season is extremely dry. They come when many animals have died, and almost all the plants have dried. This occurrence teaches us that it’s always darkest before dawn, and for this reason, hitting rock bottom is a sign that the good times are around the corner.
Lastly, I also realized that the rainy season always brings an excessive supply of food and water to the animals in the Savannah. Rivers always overflow, grass grows in abundance, and many herbivores give birth during the rainy season hence making carnivorous animals to enjoy an abundance of easy prey. (Wildebeests are known to delay their pregnancy till the wet seasons so that they give birth to calves when there is more than enough food to eat).
Similarly, I realized that when good times come to us humans, the universe always provides everything in excess that we forget that we one day lacked the things we now have.
With this in mind, we must always persevere the bad times knowing that when they end, The Universe will give us more than enough. It will give us plenty of love, food, money, and everything we need for living a good life.
By the way, this is not a motivational article. It is a realization and explanation of natural laws. I wrote the article so that you know that hard times are not that hard because the universe always provides us something to keep us moving during these times. Moreover, I wanted you to stop worrying when hard times come because they will always end and pave way for a season of abundance.
To sum up, I wanted you to realize that The Creator is a wonderful spirit that always provides to us during hard times, and he always ensures that we have more than enough in good times, which will always come. THIS IS THE LAW.
