This session is rich on the subject of early education and child care, including role of the diet, relations with adults, role models, imprint windows, weaning, trauma and challenges for the sake of growth. It would be too extensive to quote it all, but at least this bit could serve as an introduction to two excerpts from other sessions related to education that follow:
Above there is an idea of what "early" means and this may serve to qualify the following excerpt which was the one instance when the C's stepped aside to let another "C" have the floor.Q: (L) Well, I think we want to raise children that are capable of soul development. I guess that's what we want to do.
A: Yes? Then you must lay down the foundation and pattern. Let us ask you a question: If you had not had certain traumas, would you have felt so determined to find answers to the suffering of humanity???
Q: (L) No, I guess if I'd had a perfect childhood and if everything had been perfect and nice, I guess I would have been a potato. [laughter] I guess I would have been a monkey!
Q: (L) So, what you're suggesting is that you lay down a foundation of security, and then you begin to introduce patterns of frustration or whatever of the child having to confront themselves?
(L) Yeah, challenges. So then you set up challenges for the child to meet or overcome?
A: Yes. And fairly early too!
Q: (L) What do you mean by "fairly early"?
A: Starting with weaning!
Q: (L) Okay, this next question is weird. It's written in a really weird way. “Is co-sleeping recommended?”
A: In some cases for limited periods. Keep in mind that if you lay down the pattern early in a secure and loving way, the child is not overly traumatized when faced with reality. If the child is born and then lives in an external "womb", he has not really been born now has he?
Session Date: July 12th 2014 Laura, Ark, and Andromeda at the board Pierre, Perceval, Tomek, PoB, Kniall, Chu, Atriedes, Data, No-man's-land, Parallel, Mr. Scott, Alana, Timotheos Q: (L) Today is July the 12th, 2014. It is Caesar's birthday, or close enough. I mean, how the hell do you really...
To give an example of what being exposed to reality may mean there is this excerpt, from March 2014 which includes the expression: "there are many in Russia who learned in a school of hard reality", not that this was ideal but at least some results have come out.Q: (Atriedes) If you could give 3 pieces of advice to the world, what would they be?
A: I was wrong to think I could change the masses by example. Humans are fickle and self-centered for the most part. Thus, if you wish to really effect changes, it can only be done by early education, and even then it is fragile and will not last. In the end you must be true to your own nature and fear nothing. If you do that you may make a difference after you are gone. That is not exactly what you are looking for, but there are no 3 pieces of advice that serve all events.
Q: (L) Were you satisfied with how Augustus handled things after your death?
A: A vile boy who manipulated everyone and everything.
Q: (Atriedes) Do you mind if your memory and image is used in a religion?
A: As long as it is with understanding of the truth. What is religion anyway but that which binds people together as is showed with my army.
Session Date: March 22nd 2014 Laura, Ark, Pierre, Perceval, Andromeda, PoB, Kniall, Chu, Data, Alana, Timotheos, Mr. Scott Q: (L) Oh, this should be the equinox, shouldn't it? March 21st, 22nd? (Andromeda) Wasn't it yesterday? (L) Yeah. So this is Saturday, March 22nd, 2014. It's been grey and...
Sometimes I wonder who will protect the infants of the future, so that some have a chance to continue the work, or if among the world populations there are certain probabilities for enough people emerging? It can't be easy to be an infant in our world, and to the points in this session the influences of vaccines, electronic equipment and microwave radiation make it even more difficult.Q: (L) Okay, I guess the question on a lot of people's minds is: How about that Vladimir Putin, huh?
A: He's not perfect but he's the best your planet has in such a position at this time.
Q: (L) So, he's not a psychopath?
Q: (Perceval) Is there anyone essentially giving him orders? Is what he's doing being controlled directly in that sense?
A: Not in the sense you mean, but yes in the sense of conscience.
Q: (Ark) I think that what is of value is that he has the right team of advisors. When you have your advisors and they are smart and knowledgeable, they are experts in certain areas, and they will say, "If you do this, this will be the result, so I suggest that."
A: Indeed, there are many in Russia who learned in a school of hard reality difficult for Westerners to imagine. On top of this, they are better educated in general.
