Hm, it doesn't make me think that. This is the list of "non universals"
that the thread would like to see taught more:
- reading and writing
- deductive abstract mathematics
- model based science
- equal rights
- perspective drawing
- theory of harmony (?)
- similarities over differences (?)
- slow deep thinking
- legal systems
Let's exclude reading/writing, math and drawing, since they're aimed
at by traditional education. What could be a higher-bandwidth way
for children to learn about the rest of the list than to have a global
video conversation with each other, child to child, finding out what's
different between them and children in other countries, and why?
