In education, there is a fundamental pedagogical concept know as Blooms Taxonomy. Its’ function is to provide a hierarchical organization to classify learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity. Effectively we and students of any subject matter want to be able to start at the bottom of the pyramid and work upwards towards the desired outcome, or in this case the apex (below);
Unfortunately, the upward mobility tends to hit a ceiling and never goes past understanding. We stagnate and rarely move past the 2 bottom blocks of the pyramid. If we want to have a deeper understanding, promote our own growth, and think more critically, we have to motivate ourselves to move. Learn to live above the noise. Apply, analyze, evaluate, and create.
