I have a friend who likes to regurgitate what he has learnt just to show us that he has learnt something new. He would reuse the examples given but when one of us questions him, he does not know how to answer or explain further what it is all about!
Ah, this brings to my mind, the THREE R s – REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE! That is for conserving our natural resources. The principle behind the 3Rs is not new. Only we do it unconsciously even without encouragement just to conserve our natural resources, even knowledge!
Today, I am going to add one more REGURGITATE! Are we reusing past knowledge everyday? Teachers and lecturers regurgitate the same content each year. We reuse words, phrases and even sentences day in and day out! Ah, wisdom is freely reused over and over again. News is also being reused by different newspapers.
Let us look at the internet. Chunks and chunks of information are used and reused again and again.
Birds have the ability to regurgitate what they have eaten to feed their young.
Likewise, human beings are also fed by REGURGITATION! We swallow everything we see and hear when young believing in them. Only when we grow older and are able to reason things out, then we begin to gain new knowledge.
So, to progress, we must use the 3 Rs too! To REDUCE THOUGHTS THAT HINDER OUR PROGRESS. TO REUSE INFORMATION THAT IS BENEFICIAL TO MANKIND. TO RECYCLE OLD INVENTIONS INTO NEW INVENTIONS!
MAY 2013 BE AN EXCITING YEAR FOR NEW THOUGHTS AND NEW INVENTIONS THAT ARE BENEFICIAL TO MANKIND!
