Autodidact’s have employed (whether implicitly or explicitly) a systematic process of learning when embarking upon the journey of educating ones-self in the area of an unknown subject. Our desired result as an Autodidact Polymath is to be empowered with tools & techniques that facilitate the ability to freely learn any subject for oneself, without relying on the appeal to false authority.
The repeated application of the process of learning new subjects with a minimum of effort, leads to acquiring a diverse knowledge base and useable skills across multiple mediums and diverse subjects. In the natural and systematic process of learning, known as the Trivium and Quadrivium.
We experience the self-assurance and self-confidence offered in life by, adding the working knowledge, understanding and wisdom of a new subject, to a growing body of organized and integrated life knowledge, in the field of understanding the self and reality.
