As the children get older the duration of experiential, hands-on learning and workshops that they participate in will become longer. They will go from half-day; to full day; to several days in a workshop; to a week; then two weeks; a month and so on.
In this kind of creative and open learning environment, children will start to recognise their natural talents and skills very early in life. They will naturally steer towards their preferred abilities or talents and what they are truly interested in. So â€“ by the time children are 12 years old they will already have a pretty good idea what they are really good at, what drives them and excites them and what they want to do in life to contribute to the abundance of their community, while satisfying their own creative talents.
Between the ages of 12-14 the hands-on learning and workshops will keep getting longer. From a week to a full month or even more. The number of skills will be reduced and become more aligned with the abilities, skills and preferences of each child. No child is ever forced to do anything they do not want in the learning arena. Everyone is given complete freedom to pursue only what they are attracted to.
From the age of 14-16 the children will only have a few chosen skills they continue to master. These can now be seen as mini internships with master teachers, during which time the skills of the children will truly be refined. Once again â€“ this can be anything the child has chosen for themselves and it can vary from farming to mathematics or sewing, to playing the violin.
In their 16th year, every child will do their final so-called internship of their preferred subject with a master teacher. By the time the children are 16 years old and have gone through thousands of practical learning experiences and workshops and internships with master teachers, on many levels, they will know more about life and all its secrets than all the academics in the world combined today.
And so, every child and every member of the community will have the knowledge and practical experience we can only dream of today. They will be able to build a rocket; milk a cow; solve mathematical equations; grow food; weave carpets; build bridges; make butter and cheese; create free energy machines; play various instruments; excel in sport; and so much more.
At the end of this final internship the children will go into their chosen â€œlabour of loveâ€ (LOL) and become valuable contributors for the benefit of the entire community. Some people may see this as some kind of life-long commitment from which there is no escape. This is not the case but merely the residue of our poisoned minds still trying to throw hurdles in our way to complete freedom. I need to remind you that the UBUNTU Contributionism model suggests that everybody only contributes THREE hours per day with their chosen â€œlabour of loveâ€.
The main reason for this is quite simple. If we spend more than three hours per day creating and producing abundance, there will simply be too much stuff. Too much food; too much electricity; too much fuel; too many shirts; plates; tables; houses; soccer balls; rockets; carpets, chickens; cows; milk; bread; etc, etc.
Because we will no longer chase money and spend 80% of our lives on the pursuit of money in some form or another. All our efforts and all the things we do in the UBUNTU community and all the energy we spend is to create abundance for the community and therefore ourselves. It is almost impossible for us to imagine this kind of abundance in the current capitalistic world we live in today.
Remember that everyone in the community will also contribute THREE hours per week towards one of the many community projects or activities. Whether it is mowing the lawn in the parks; dealing with sewerage removal or conversion; creating free energy; transporting materials; fixing the street lights; planting seedlings; etc.
So, after we spend three hours in the day doing what we love to do as our contribution to the community, we still have 21 hours left in the day. Since we have no stress or worries about survival or where we will get our meals each day, we will engage in other activities that we are passionate about and that we have become really good at because of our training. People have various hobbies and sometimes many passions that they will be able to pursue without restriction. No matter what we do or participate in, everything will ultimately be of some kind of benefit to ourselves and the entire community.
Everyone will be able to undergo any kind of training or additional learning at any stage. Remember that only master teachers that have been appointed by the community will be able to do advanced skills training.
When the children leave their final internship at the age of 16, they will do their LOL under the supervision of a master who is already active in that specific field. When the master determines that he can no longer teach the student any more â€“ or that the student has attained the highest level of skills that the master can teach, he will appoint the student as a master himself. This is how the respect of the community gets passed onto new people who have mastered their skills and it keeps expanding the number of people who can take on the important role of teaching the children to become highly skilled and clear thinking individuals.
