Education exists for life Education expands the length, width and height of life

Human growth, or the meaning of education, is like building a pyramid, based on the length of natural life and the width of social life. The stronger the base, the larger the base, the higher the spiritual life, the more likely it is to be indestructible until it reaches the sky.

In other words, whether life is ultimately happy and complete is determined by the three attributes of life. The length of natural life emphasizes the continuation of the existence of time, the breadth of social life emphasizes the enrichment of current experience, and the high of spiritual life pursues the quality of enduring. The three-dimensional construction of length, width and height constitutes the capacity of the "container" of life.

This is a fundamental human question. Like the words "Know thyself" inscribed on the lintel of the Temple of Delphi, the question of "What is life?" refers directly to man's knowledge and understanding of himself.

Human beings have never stopped exploring themselves, and their understanding of life has never been complete. There has never been a fixed answer to this question, and there has never been an accepted standard definition of "life".

As far as the connotation of life is concerned, with the differentiation of disciplines, all disciplines involved in life try to define life from their own angles, forming different understandings and understandings of life.

In the biological sense, life is an organism composed of polymeric nucleic acid proteome and other substances.

In the sociological sense, life refers to the high unity of natural attributes and social attributes, and sociality is the essential attribute that distinguishes human life from other species.

Life in the philosophical sense refers to an objective existence in nature, which is the product of the contradictory movement of nature. At the same time, life is also a subjective existence, which is the subject of cognition of the real world.

From psychology, economics, literature, religion and other perspectives, people have many more definitions of life. All these definitions clearly define life from different angles, and enrich and improve human's understanding of life from different aspects.

From the perspective of pedagogy, life is an organism capable of self-conscious growth, and education is an activity that actively promotes the self-conscious growth of individual life, so that people's lives are constantly enriched, improved and perfected.

"There are no two identical leaves in the world." And no two lives are exactly alike. Different genetic genes, different social experiences, and different spiritual perceptions also make decisions that no two people in the world are exactly the same.

The world is like a garden where beauty is in full bloom; Life is like a flower, beautiful in its own way.

The uniqueness of life creates the diversity and richness of the world, which means that the ideal destination of every life is to grow into the best self.

Each of us can only grow into the best you, I, he, and can not replace each other.

The uniqueness of life also determines that every life is an irreplaceable existence, and the death of any life is an irreparable regret.

To help a life grow a little, is to perfect the world a little; To extend a life a little is to extend the world a little. This is the value and significance of education.

Each life has only one life, and it is unique and cannot be duplicated. At the same time, the growth of each life is also irreversible, can not be repeated, and time has the same vector dimension, which makes life particularly precious.

Therefore, the best education should be the education that cherishes and respects all life, so that people can know life, understand life, cherish life, care for life, love life and achieve life, so that each life can live out its own life, live in dignity, live in integrity, live in happiness.
