mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in fairness, math is an AWFUL example for this matter. because, well, in honesty a "simple" notion such as the notion of a number is still patently ununderstood by the species altogether. and for that matter minimal effort to even comprehend it starts with what, frege ? a coupla centuries ago ?
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: on the other hand, stuff that isn't math, such as whatever, "ecology" don't even HAVE concepts, at all
asciilifeform: frege, peano, church, et al.
mircea_popescu: there's nothing there to understand.
mircea_popescu: so... the expectation that there'd be understanding happening in school is not unlike the expectation that there'd be salvation happening at the brothel.
mircea_popescu: salvation does not happen.
