Re: Names

What Greg suggested worked for me. I also made flash cards that I carried with me.

A game I used to play in my head was to try to name what was being demonstrated. Our instructors always ask if there are any questions after they've finished the demonstration so I'd ask the name (if they hadn't already told us) sometimes I had it right and sometimes I was waaaay off, but I felt the process of thinking about it and making the connections was valuable.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
