    Education is as much a learning of new facts as it is getting rid of false ideas. Here are some notes on FALSE DATA STRIPPING.

    (1) There is no absolute false data. All false data is relative only.

    (2) Relative false data appears as an inconsistency, where something appears to be not quite right. It does not make sense.

    (3) A person may not be aware of an inconsistency when he has nothing to compare it to.

    (4) People can have inconsistencies in their thinking, which appear natural to them.

    Step one is to detect the inconsistency.
    There are always more than one data involved in an inconsistency. However, which datum is false may not always be clear.

    Step two is to detect the false datum.
    It may take a matrix of data to determine a false datum. It will be false relative to not only to one other datum, but also to a majority of surrounding data.

    One may ask,

    “On the subject under discussion, Is there anything

    (1) One couldn’t think with
    (2) Which didn’t seem to add up
    (3) Which seems to be in conflict what one is trying to learn.”

    This may only point to an inconsistency and not necessarily to a false datum. One may then have to look at the various contexts in which that inconsistency seems to appear.

      One may start looking at whatever appears in one’s mind relating to that inconsistency.

      (1) It could be an incident where something happened. One then looks at who was involved, what they were doing, what one was doing, etc.

      (2) It could be a long term experience in an area. One simply lets the mind freely associate in that area with respect to that inconsistency.

      This is continued until the whole context clears up, and the false datum is clearly visible.
