You can know or acquire a self education if you didn’t get to go to public schools or college. The desire to know and some time allotted to study is a must to become self-educated.

First, you must learn the nine math symbols zero to nine in which you can make any number you want. Next, you must learn the 26 language symbols in which you can make any word in the dictionary.

There are all kinds of aids in our society to help with self learning, such as newspapers, television, radio, books, etc. Another good source of self learning is talking to people that know more about a particular subject than you do and asking questions.

You can expand your vocabulary by studying. Make sure that each word symbol you use has precise reference in reality. Words without reference are nothing but grunts and groans and visual hallucinations.

Self education is possible if you have a burning desire to know and time to study.
