With the advent of the internet, the world has been harnessed within the grasp of nearly every person in the world. It has borne with it the culmination of centuries of human thought and discovery. This has made the personal computer of each individual one of the greatest tools of education imaginable. It has not, however, created a true arena for learning for the social animal. Mankind is a social animal. We learn, create, expound upon, and develop the most amazing things in our solitude. This being said, we are at our best when we are among others. Our most wonderous and beneficial ideas are fostered in a Socratic environment where our teachers and peers help us to craft the raw materials of our dreams into a practical schema. We need others. Now, in this day and age we have peer-to-peer networks and video chat and the like, and one can bounce ideas back and forth in this manner, but there is no way to, literally and figuratively, see eye to eye. I think a traditional educational environment provides a stimuli that we, as humans, need and that our ultimate cognitive solutions cannot do without. Just as well, the need for a surrounding of projected austerity and critical ambition. Those old, august halls of learning and the dusty hush that comes with them when the gears of eager minds are softly gritting their teeth. This projection of a space where thought reigns supreme and all other worldly cares are left at the great marble steps before the doors. Antiquated though it may be, this paradigm lays before it a separation between the body and the mind. Where the mind alone may wonder and grasp at lofty or very near concepts and grapple with their levity.
