Why Foundations Fund Irrelevant Education Programs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ep9XcJbnk8

Hundreds of new technology companies are launched every year. Most have some sort of short-term success. But then most fail long-term because their product/service was not scalable. The inability for a technology company to scale means that it was not able to innovate ahead of the evolving needs of society. Therefore that technology company is not relevant to society in the future.

All foundations know that they are completely out of their league to even try assessing what current technology company can be scalable and therefore relevant to society in the future. This is sensible because organizations like Venture Capital firms that specifically specialize in this technology space, and have financial incentives to get their assessment right, are usually wrong most of the time.

In contrast, foundations take the absolute opposite approach to education programs. Foundations think they know what type of current education program will be relevant to society in the future. This is of course ludicrous because the same requirements that technology companies have to scale also apply to education programs. So if an education program can’t scale it will not be relevant to society in the future. This means that foundations have no more rational insight on the future of education than they do on the future of technology.

The failure of foundations to understand this reality starts with the very top leadership team and trickles on down. This is because all those individuals have gone through an extensive education and feel their success is due to that experience. That experience is then misconstrued as expertise and projected onto the education space. This misconception is further reinforced by hired ‘education experts’ who mold guesses on the future of education into the desired perspective the foundation seeks. This leads to a completely false sense of direction that manifests in the foundation’s created guidelines and short-term benchmarks for their desired education programs. Then non-profits scheme their proposals around those conditions to get funding. Afterward, benchmarks are achieved and success is hailed all around. Wonderful. Except that none of these education programs are scalable. Therefore none of these education programs are relevant to society in the future. Period.

These irrelevant programs then contribute to a U.S. Education system that is already over a century behind in its approach. Therefore, foundations cannot continue the same process of funding education programs and expect different results. To break this paralysis a scalable education program called LED accelerator will be introduced here. LED accelerator is a proposed dual system within U.S. Education that will foster high-level creative thinkers along with skill sets that can ultimately develop breakthrough innovators.

LED accelerator shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X. These dual systems were created to be vertically intensive and innovate ahead of the needs of their respective parent organization. The difference with LED accelerator is that the selected gifted students in this system have malleable brains that are simultaneously being wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences. Furthermore, LED accelerator students will collaborate and compete while using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products, services and philosophy they intuitively see existing in the future world. The driven LED accelerator students within each school district will continually adopt best practices to evolve their program’s culture while striving to pursue breakthrough projects.

LED accelerator will innovate ahead of the evolving needs of U.S. Education, its parent organization. In turn, the continually changing learning strategies and achievement results will provide for administrators evidence-based data on which aspects of LED accelerator can be implemented in general education. So the current process of relying on failed guesses of ‘education experts’ to originate future curriculum and doctrines will cease. The internally generated evidence-based data of LED accelerator will be the impetus to continually advance the entire U.S. Education system alongside evolving social, economic and government needs.

Consequently, foundations that fund the launch of LED accelerator in school districts across the U.S. will be the only ones that achieve a relevant impact on society in the future.

The Bold Strategy to Empower American Exceptionalism

Ever since a 19th century writer described America as “exceptional”, scholars and politicians have constantly referred to ‘American Exceptionalism’ in one form or another. All understand intuitively the powerful confluence of American events and resources that have resulted in such a historic impact.

While America has been given a good foundation, in order for American Exceptionalism to become sustainable, a bold strategy must be designed and executed successfully. The following three-step process develops a bold strategy:

1. Define the main challenge.
2. Understand the critical factor within that challenge.
3. Apply organizational strength into the ‘most promising opportunity’ within the critical factor.

This bold strategy is applicable to a structured organization of any size. The following proposal is a bold strategy for the structured organization called America.

First Step: The main challenge for the America is to innovate through the growth of the economy. In turn, the growth of the economy dictates how quickly social and financial systems inside can advance.
Second Step: The critical factor for the growth of the American economy is to have communities continually innovate. In turn, the level of a community’s innovation dictates how quickly the business industry ecosystem outside can advance.
Third Step: The organizational strength of America is its ability to empower and benefit from billions of decentralized and diverse choices being made within communities. Within any one community, a school of U.S. Education (another structured organization) that can develop the creative thinking potential and skill sets of all adolescents is the ‘most promising opportunity’ to which the organizational strength of America should be applied. The reason is that creative skill sets are the core foundation for all adults to be able to innovate.

But this has not happened because American leadership does not understand this bold strategy. Consequently, U.S. Education was not set up to foster innovation but is instead focused on competing with centralized education systems of other countries. But centralized education systems will always be more effective at developing homogenous students that can memorize and regurgitate current information – which is the opposite of innovation. So the counter productive focus of U.S. Education actually has the result of flipping the organizational strength of America into a weakness.

LED accelerator would change this backward dynamic for U.S. Education and leverage the organizational strength of America. LED accelerator is a proposed dual system within U.S. Education that will foster high-level creative thinkers along with skill sets that can ultimately develop breakthrough innovators.

LED accelerator shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X that were created to be vertically intensive within their respective parent organization. The difference is that malleable brains of students in this system are simultaneously being wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences. LED accelerator students will collaborate and compete while using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products and services they intuitively see existing in the future world. The hyper competitive students within each decentralized school district will continually adopt best practices to evolve their culture while striving to pursue breakthrough projects.

Continually changing outcomes will provide for evidence-based data for educators on what aspects of LED accelerator can be implemented in the general education curriculum. The internal impetus of LED accelerator will therefore continually advance the entire U.S. Education system alongside evolving social, economic and government needs.

LED accelerator is therefore not just another education program. It is the missing piece that completes the bold strategy to empower American Exceptionalism to lead the world.

An Open Letter To Peter Thiel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ep9XcJbnk8

Peter,

Here are three concepts that you have publicly expressed interest in:
1. To find something that’s true, that almost nobody agrees with.
2. To fix an institutionalized and homogenized education system.
3. To advance the developed world by being vertically intensive.

All three concepts are addressed as a process individually below. As well as being interconnected within a new paradigm that will emerge after a specific event takes place. That event is the launch of LED accelerator – CreateLEDaccelerator.com – a new dual system program within U.S. Education that will develop Zero to One breakthrough innovators.

First: To develop an understanding of breakthrough innovation, a new framework needs to be described within which the cognitive mind and the physical brain are distinct constructs of one system. The traits of personality, intuition, emotion and thought cannot originate from a brain cell. The breakdown of a cell goes to molecules, atoms, subatomic particles and all the way to quantum planck length frequencies. Furthermore, the brain cell dies every 12 years. Consequently, there is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the cognitive mind. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is the operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

The human mind saves to memory all information input that the body sees, hears and experiences. Memory is therefore just information that the mind can access and assimilate to attain unique perspectives. This output process results in created incremental innovation. In contrast, breakthrough innovation is discovered because that information already exists and just needs to be sourced. Breakthrough innovators use their discovered information to establish new guideposts and direction for incremental innovators and the rest of society to follow. The existence of the cosmos is not left to chance and neither is human evolution. “God does not play dice”.

Second: The premise of U.S. Education forcing students to memorize information and then grading them on how well they regurgitate it, is now obsolete. This process wires the mind completely against creativity and critical thinking. Furthermore, no part of the U.S. Education system exists to specifically recognize and develop our potential breakthrough innovator adolescents. The special skills of those adolescents are snuffed out, re-channeled to fit conventional career fields or disciplined for incremental innovation. That is why breakthrough innovators like Steve Jobs came into existence by pure chance, in spite of the education system. The solution is to disrupt U.S. Education from inside.

Individualized Project Based Learning is the future of U.S. Education. But educators cannot explain, as a process, how to establish and evolve it. Educators will therefore cautiously experiment and waste generations of students’ lives until a process starts to develop. LED accelerator will break this bottleneck by developing adolescents that will adopt best practices as they strive to pursue big opportunity goals. Continually changing outcomes will provide evidence-based data on what aspects of LED accelerator can be implemented as guideposts for Project Based Learning. This process will then continually advance U.S. Education as a whole.

Third: LED accelerator shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X, that were created to be vertically intensive within their respective parent organization. The difference is that malleable brains of adolescents in this system are simultaneously being wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences to better source innovation. LED accelerator adolescents will collaborate and compete while using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products and services they intuitively see existing in the future world. Within this process they will face adversity and fail more than they succeed. Hence, they will all develop resiliency. As adults, that trait will be forged into courage.

Courage along with a honed intellectual and intuitive capability will be the skill set foundation of future leaders. This foundation will be crucial to successfully meet the immense challenge of guiding society with and through constant disruptive innovation. That is why LED accelerator adolescents will grow up to be leaders within the private, public, military and religious sectors of this exceptional nation. But societies in other developed nations will also need guideposts to follow as well. So LED accelerator is not just a program that will Make America Great Again. It will be the sustainable core of American Exceptionalism to lead the world.

In Conclusion: At this point you may be thinking that this new paradigm is limited to utilitarian tactics and strategy. Where is the breathtaking long-range vision and fun behind it you ask. It is anchored in the understanding that millions of future years of information in the form of breakthrough physics and technology can potentially be sourced. While the construct of planned randomness ensures that future human experiences and conflicts remain only as planned probabilities, the information for breakthrough physics and technology is set. Everything from Strong AI bots, to medical instruments that use frequencies in repairing DNA, to disc shaped Starships that without drag are propelled forward at near light speed by moving space-matter and spacetime around the vessel. [The current static model of spacetime is incorrect because it is the dynamic 5th force within one unified field. Some of the effects of this 5th force is attributed to nonexistent dark matter and dark energy placeholders.] Additionally, travel between star systems will be made possible by going through Einstein-predicted wormholes to explore the Milky Way frontier and engage its millions of sentient inhabited worlds.
ALL. THIS. INFORMATION. EXISTS. NOW.
Wouldn’t it be fun to hack our matrix ecosystem and go source it?
