The iteration of learning

How we learn so that we can grow

The iteration of learning

The reality of fractals is a stunning idea – all created, on purpose for the world and beyond. They occur through the iteration of numbers and objects, a recurring set of small changes that make up the whole. 

Dictionary definition: Merriam-Webster

“the action or a process of iterating or repeating: such as: a procedure in which repetition of a sequence of operations yields results successively closer to a desired result: the repetition of a sequence of computer instructions a specified number of times or until a condition is met.”

Iteration is a kind of repeating. Something like a number repeats it’self, but something is added each time to slightly change the patterns. This creates new patterns. This is the process of creativity. We take an idea and develop it by adding and developing, analysing and researching probable destinations. We choose one, usually, but we could choose more. 

There is no limit to iteration, it is a creative process, therefore is limitless. Ideas are limitless, we just don’t think of them! The usual functioning of the brain depend to a great extent on how it has been taught. This can cause limitations and shut down many thought processes. The idea that children should learn for themselves, is a good one, as the child can learn at their own pace, in their own way. This is not the prevailing philosophy at this time in history, but that is another discussion…

The free mind is able to think for itself and make creative decisions without stricture. The creativity availability to us is limitless and the manifestations of ideas is for every person. Learning in a meaningful way depends on it. Learning must depend on making decisions and solving problems, otherwise it is just learning steps to do a particular task, which turns us into mindless machines. Our present system tends to do this. Art and music are very important to the human psyche and are becoming more important as we become more technology orientated and spend increasing time with machines. 

The ability to express is crucial, and everyone needs to be involved. God knows this and so we have the facility of praise. This is the fractal of praise. We express with every sort of us, body, mind and soul. The Christian is at home when involved with praise, and this is the atmosphere of heaven.

Learning is so enjoyable, or should be. Every day we are being taught by the Lord, all kinds of things and the blessing of knowing this is huge. To know God cares about you enough to be involved with you, is so full of confidence giving power. 

As we learn, we repeat and embed the skills in our minds and muscles. Thinking skills, practical, intellectual, social, spiritual skills that give us the tools of life. Not just for this world, but preparing us for the next world also. One lesson learned then leads to another. Every lesson has reinforcement and plenty of new need to learn to make it interesting for our minds. To have the same lesson over and over is so tedious, but to be able to move on to new things every time, gives us interest and motivation or learn more. One lessons building on another, and we gain complexity in our thought processes. 

All the skills we need become more and more complex but as we master them, we come highly skilled at all that we are being taught. This is for everyone, not just the favoured few. 

“Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened…”

Matthew 7:7-8

If we want to learn we will seek it out. If we seek wisdom we will find it. If we seek God we will find Him. Our will is involved in this. Unfortunately the things of this time and space can stamp out desire, and we just go on in the vein of least resistance. We must resist that promoting and look higher. 

We are born with such potential, and no one is empty. Everyone has gifts to use and bestow on other people. We start of simply and gain the complexity over time and as we learn our skills. One skills leads to another- we literally, branch out and our skills set develops and becomes a huge tree-like structure. 

We become mature and are not phased by learning. We become good learners and gain satisfaction for our work and activity. This is the blessing of God, not just earning money. To be happy earning your way in life, is a good place to be. It requires learning and building and effort. To be able to work and learn and grow is so important for every person. We are not meant to mind machines…

Our world systems are also undermining our personal resilience to persevere with things we find a challenge. It’s easy to give up, but then the learning also stops. The ideas need to be coming into our minds to keep the interest up in what we are doing. These ideas need to come from ourselves so that we are self-motivated and gain confidence in our ideas and thought processes. So often this is taken away. Personal resilience will helps us learn all through our lives and keep going, because it is pleasurable. 

If we keep following what we are told, we will eventually stagnate and there will be no progress and no satisfaction. Life becomes tedious and options close down. This leads us into a place where there is no choice and no liberty. 

“If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 6:36

If we have the liberty of Christ in us, we are truly free, even though we might be in physical chains. The mind that is free can find ways through the gloom and will know the intense teaching of God. A true education gives us this power. To know the Scriptures is life and peace, since they are the person of Christ. To know Christ is the way of liberty, and no one can stop us from growing and making progress in our inner life as well as the outward manifestations of success. Our spiritual life will branch into a huge fractal of the Grace of God. As that grows we become more Christ-like and full of good works. We learn more and more and grow in statue as a woman of God. 

We take care of our bodies so that the fractals remain in good working order and our lives are long and fruitful. We feed our minds with all good things and exercise them in a wide variety of ways, learning new skills all through our lives. Our souls grow more and more godlike. We learn our lessons from scripture and the teaching of the Holy Spirit in our minds and souls. The fractal grows and we become like mature trees of the forest, wise, discerning, full of the fruit of good works and ready for heaven…
