A Brief Overview of Psychedeli

Education is defined as acquiring skills. There are many different ways to be educated and many subjects that can be studied. School is not the only place or setting in which we can learn or get educated. We usually receive information by seeing, touching, and hearing, but it''s useless unless we think about it. Otto Friedrich states ''Education teaches how to think''. Thinking is a process to filter the information that we receive through our senses and put this information in order. A well-educated person should be able to think, to organize information, to have own thought, and to respond individually; therefore an educated person could educate himself or herself by receiving information.

Again, a good grade or a good school only tells that person had done a good job on information transmittal. Unfortunately, it is a fact that society made us to believe that a person who graduated from a good school has more opportunities than a person who hasn''t graduated from a good or famous school. But, in reality, the first step to have a good life is to keep good amount of income. In order to keep ...
