Lexicon


Hinky> something, as yet undetermined, is not quite right, out of place, wrong somehow. Is not consistent with previous experience. Does not compute. a bullshit detector.  

Learn> a process of acquiring wisdom.  when used as a transitive verb, it means presenting the data, providing a possible explanation and inviting challanges. ex. “I’m going to learn you something.”

Squishy> Not clearly defined, difficult to articulate

Teach> a process of presenting data and logic as if it were fact.  If done during the critical period of learning, it becomes part of the victim’s belief system and cripples creative thinking.  In contrast to brainwashing, it is permanent.
