Reflection 2 - Poem by Edmundo Farolan

falseness inherent in our nature
as it is for walls who listen,
speak and shudder,
sometimes sweat,
sometimes think,
sometimes grow old in their inanimation.

The mind, a makeshift of devices in time and space.
Brainwashing to conform: this is the purpose of education.
Result=students do exactly the opposite. Conformity is limitation. Vagueness+Concreteness=Idiocy.
Life’s quest?
The nose that smells and the mind that visualizes.
