One Line of Knowledge

When I was moving to a new place last few weeks, I found my old dusty college notebooks piling up in a corner. You do not know what wisdom that you did not pick up back then, until I found a quotation from a famous physicist Richard Feynman:


If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generations of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words?

I suppress his answer here because this is an NLP forum, and the question is much more profound than the answer as it inspires a few lines of thoughts:

1. What NLP knowledge would you choose to pass on, if it is worth passing on at all?

2. I am wondering if anyone think that NLP knowledge is holistic, that is you can see a world in a grain of sand, not without some effort and imagination of course.

3. Maybe NLP is not a body of knowledge at all since it emphasize strongly on direct experience. Perhaps it is difficult for someone to reconstruct the whole NLP even thought we pass on the whole NLP literature, but not impossible, I think.

On the other hand, I think it is appropriate pass on something if every process is going to an end. Is it not what nominalization for, to store the process going on so far in the hope that someone will take it and go on with it?
