"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Question #4:

Our school education system is well entrenched as an inflexible phenomenon, and perceived as being rigidly regimented. Changing the minds of policy makers requires a cognitive shift, followed by a massive structural transition at the operating level, i.e. in the schools. How do you expect to overcome this resistance so that that they are ready to embrace the auspices of the “Learning Planet’?

DM: This ‘truth’ appears to be an insurmountable challenge, and many would say that the educational domain is the only one that has remained stagnant in the course of human evolution.

Well, in homage to the genius of Bukminster Fuller, I quote him: "You can't change anything by fighting or resisting it. You change something by making it obsolete through superior methods."

I believe that I have ‘superior methods’ that will enable people to become able…to address the issues of the Third Millennium. New challenges demand new imperatives.

In partnership with technology giants, I know that I can help to architect learning campuses that are worthy of the genius within every child. This initiative must involve all sectors of society, most importantly, teachers, parents, senior citizens, policy makers, and administrators.
