129 – outside contracts

How are outside contracts decided upon?

Due to the necessity of securing work with exterior agencies, firms and foundations. There should be a committee dedicated to taking on the responsibility of which jobs are taken, declined or delayed. the committee should really only have to worry about the the numbers of available community members who have the required skills. However, if the institutions asking for members demands work that is contrary to the communities ethical stance or is currently involved in provable actions that run contrary to the benefit / future of mankind they should be turned down. Once again turned down contracts can be complained against and a a decision committee involving outsiders can be formed. No outside influence should be involved in research as it would create a bias automatically unless those involved are left unaware who requested it.

128 – education

How does education occur?

This is a very broad question I asked, I would imagine that given the practical working nature of the community where & when will education take place?

There are 3 main methods that can be broadly applied; theory & study much like a traditional education system, practical application and learning by usage/inquiry/investigation, dialogue and debate with your chosen mentor or teaching those in your care.

We as individuals can take everything to be a learning experience and indeed education should be a perpetual thing. The moment we cease to inquire is the moment we need to be circumspect and ask ourselves why we have stopped.

self-study is also vital in education an a healthy respect of skepticism or doubting the currently accepted status quo for things should be applauded. Be open minded enough to allow new ideas but not so much that our brains fall out
