…. isn’t it ironic that the higher you go in education the more you rely on error and experimentation… the more that error creates the data for new discoveries and inventions to supplant…
Without the error we have no stable data to base calculations and projections. Errors are in fact experimentation that denotes the transition through the portal of success.
It allows you to plot the transition from a failed experimentation into the successful discovery or confirmation.
And yet we are taught at school and college that failure and error are obstacles and need to be avoided – at all costs.
We are taught the a wrong answer is something to be ashamed of.
