We bring up our children
with too much conceptual abstractions.
That they have to memorize.
They have to learn concepts
without realizing the underlying reality.
Learn concepts
without understanding
the meaning.
They have to learn
what others think is  important.
And slowly along the way,
they lose the ability
to think creative,
to be original.
It is like a box
that is filled with  bottles of water,
thinking it is full,
while keeping the water separate.
Without realizing
that pouring the water out
would leave plenty of room
for more,
while all the water  can mix.
