Vicarious (adj.)

I heard this word mentioned often in the recent conversation between former deputy Prime Minister of Australia John Anderson and Lord Jonathan Sumption (pictured above) – Law in a Time of Crises.

Sumption’s glittering legal mind provides for insightful and challenging perspectives on various topics including lockdown, climate change, Brexit, and so-called ‘hate speech’. He is a a celebrated historian, barrister, and emeritus judge of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.

Vicarious:
* Experience or realised through imaginative or sympathetic participation in the experience of another.
* Or performed or suffered in substitute for another.

Paralogy (noun)

A false meaning. A method of reasoning which contradicts logical rules.

F.A.C.T (Acronym for learning effectively)

I don’t know where I heard this, but I won’t forget it -FACT!:

F – Forget – Start with a beginner’s mind and that your learning is limitless

A – Active – Learn through creation, take notes and ask questions.

C – Curiosity – Get into the state of curiosity, excitement and wonder because information combined with emotion becomes a long-term memory.

T – Teach – When you teach something, you get to learn it twice.

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand
