I am learning what to teach, what is missing, what is needed from my students.
There is something I struggled with for decades, I have, it seems, overcome it, and have never seemed to look at it again… ponder it, and then teach it.
A different look at distinction reveals a different way lack of distinctions make life more difficult.
Imagine a surgeon in the operating room talking like this: Nurse, give me that little thingie… you know the one with the curved blades that aren’t blades at all, but look like blades… you know?
If things don’t have exactly defined names, the surgeon will kill the patient.
Half of being a surgeon is to know what tool to use and what it is called.
The same is true in every area of life, especially when it also concerns other people.
