From the Z-paper series by Herb Zinser
The education process in schools involves books with black ink symbols that are INPUT optical data streams to the human eye/ retina/ iris , the optical nerve and the brain PHOTON symbol computer.
The human student in school is 3 pupils.
When I was in elementary school ...... I (male) weighed maybe 80 pounds.
I was an 80 pound PUPIL and had 2 eyes with pupils.
Thus I was 3 pupils ...... however, the educational system is only concerned with the physical biology PUPIL ..... and how to teach that PUPIL enough basic words and thoughts ... so he grows up and gets a factory job and watches sports on TV.
The eye/optical pupil and its philosophy education is not considered that important.
Only, practical knowledge is taught ... and that is good . but society needs a a few people to think about more things.
The SYMBOL MACHINE is comprised of English language words and concepts, math and physics equations, biochemistry diagrams, electromagnetic sin wave schematics, etc. The SYMBOL MACHINE equivalent are basic college textbooks in math and science that may be found in any bookstore or a bookstore near a university.
We are reminded of ......

Chapter 2 Symbols Maps and Territories
There is a sense in which we all live in two worlds.
What are the 2 worlds?
This paper uses Nature's SYMBOL PROCESSORS that describe the earthly universe AND describes its contents.
Modern CMS (Content Management Systems) are used to describe EARTH contents ....... ..... humans activities and tragic signaling EVENTS.
In year 2014 ..... the TALE of 2 Cities provides an accurate perception of existence on EARTH.
1) physical existence of biology human beings, lumber houses, I-beams of iron/ cement/ glass office buildings, 4-wheeled automobiles with gasoline engines, etc
2) SYMBOL MACHINE existence ..... cities of black ink symbols and concepts --> chemistry books, computer manuals, college textbooks on electronics, books of algebra equations, etc.,
Thus we have modern view of EARTH ..... a symbol universe that physical biology humans live within. Humans are considered subsets ...... living within.... embedded within Nature's symbol universe.
A 2nd VIEW of the TWO CITIES is ....
1) a physical geography city like Chicago, Illinois
2) c = 186,000 velocity of light ...... within the word velocity is the subset word city.
This is an optical PHOTON city with SYMBOL LIFE .. . like Mr.math represents a school of thought - mathematics. This electromagnetic city travels at the speed of light between 2 humans that look at each other. This process of Nature is automatic .... .an automatic, SILENT, optical information exchange between people.
A teacher in a classroom in front of 20 students with 20/20 vision ..... gives his optical information to 20 people.
In addition, he/ she talks and writes on the blackboard.
Thus we see a complicated situation ...between language , optics, CRYPTIC newspaper articles, etc.
But that provides for many interesting puzzles ..... providing pieces to the big puzzle of the THEORY of EVERYTHING.
