To me, the big change on humankind, since the industrial revolution on XIX century, has been the expectation of life.
Those days, children mortality was around 20 to 30%, while today is smaller than 1 per 1000
A person on his 40’s was already an old person, while today the expectation of life is quite the double.
This has led us to multiply by 6 the world population, with an astonishing growing curve in the last 60 years: From 1900 to 1950, 53%, from 1950 to 2000, over 140%
I believe we need to unlearn as humankind that we are not here just to be born, to grow, to reproduce and short after that, to die,
and to learn how to live the double of years after our reproductive age.
Here is where i believe is the real challenge of 21st century.17/08/2016 #5 AnonymousI am happy to read your lines, concerning to such a complex issue as unlearning.
1-Of course, on the digital era, it is needed to unlearn things, but i am not too sure that unlearning should happen with the only basis of the times we are living.
2-Undoubtedly, a massive amount of data and information can be checked nowadays, in order to get the best solution.
3-And it is true, the digital age is already changing the way the humans work, play and interact.
Or maybe not. Because:
1-The five steps process you are mentioning: questioning, detailed study, multiple source checks, compare and contrast, assimilate, it was already invented by the ancient Greeks, so nothing new under the sun. Just much more data, and quicker. This leads me to the next point
2- The problem is that added to it, one becomes such a quantity of data, that is difficult to chase what is valuable information and what is not.
A prove of it you have it in this very buzz.
1 min to read it, 600 views, and 1,5 comments in one month, and in the same period of time, hundreds (or thousands) of posts have arrived beBee, just in this tiny network (sorry)
What a waste, considering the challenging of the title, and the talent shown on it.
3-We have unlearned good manners, empathy, only to name two of the main human values we should have never unlearned.
(to be continued)17/08/2016 #3 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD"The ability to unlearn what is learned is a vital evolutionary concept." and "The human mind development advances at evolutionary glacial pace.The digital age moves at the speed of light.Learning to unlearn is a vital cognitive process for life in the 21st century." Great Quotes, and each sentence in this paragraph, from your decades of learning, could be expounded on in separate Buzzes. I know this is simple and concise, but would love to know more about each step of the way: recognition, self-examination and education, the development of a 'change of mind,' implementation, re-assessment, and then what you just did - Sharing. You've got a lot of experience packed away in this. Inquiring minds want to know more. Shared to "HealthCare Administration: The Medical Director," "Hospital Administration: The Chief of Staff" and "Hospital Administration: Technology." Asking @John White, MBA to kindly consider 'opening' this up for wider sharing 🐝 Thank you! ~mags
