LEARNING TO LIVE BY LIVING TO LEARN

JABIR IBN HAYYAN was a wide-ranging genius and is considered the “father of chemistry“.  He introduced a scientific and experimental approach, clearly recognizing and proclaiming the importance of practice as follows:

The first essential in chemistry is that thou shouldest perform practical work and conduct experiments, for he who performs not practical work nor makes experiments will never attain to the least degree of mastery.

Such is the road of mastery whereby acting upon what not to do becomes synonymous with what to do.  Want (manifest by external circumstances) and Need (manifest by internal circumstances) can via mastery become congenially convergent.  This convergence detonates Force.

It is a proven charted route for being and becoming, for learning and mastery:  PRACTICE with EXPERIENCE.  Or perhaps as Buckminster Fuller put it, “by trial and error, error, error”!

Here at 33 Gateway Lane, that’s learning to live by living to learn.
