“To ignore the wisdom of our ancestors is to ignore the process of evolution itself. The culmination of generations of knowledge is one of the greatest differences between us and other species on this planet. Teaching a child to do solely what we did because it is a ritual or because that’s what you did is not helping a child, but instead keeping their mind stagnant. Teaching them the progressive knowledge of all previous generations is showing them why and how things evolved to the present situation. This “whole” or total view of humanity opens their mind to many new possibilities for achieving a better way to live. Teaching anything less than this collective wisdom is setting up humanity for extinction.”
