Colleges Promote Memory Over Intelligence

The Professor said to Osho "this system does not create people of intelligence; this system only creates people of good memory--and that is what is needed.  We need clerks, we need stationmasters, we need postmasters--and these students don't need intelligence, they need a good memory."

This is what is going on with the Martial Arts and systems.  The "Master" does not want his students to grow to be mature and truly express themselves, the "Master" wants the students to have good memory and pass on tradition.  The students are so busy memorizing to pass on tradition that they never have the time to find themselves and express themselves.  They are not truly Artists, they are being used as tools to generate profit and build a reputation for the system.


  1. That is the reason why I do not want to go to "self-defense instructors" and "masters". They do not care about you. They only want to memorized their instructions without a single consideration of you expressing yourself. The idea of self-defense turns me off because you are not really expressing yourself.
