Educosm is 1. an amalgam of the words education and cosmos
- Education in the largest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. It is the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually.
Cosmos means the world or universe regarded as an orderly, harmonious system. It is a complete, orderly, harmonious system.
Quite literally therefore,Educosm is a place where education can be imparted in a harmonious orderly manner. It is a space which can be termed as a world of education. It is in this sphere of knowledge that a scholar can immerse himself into the expanses of intellectual growth for the enlightenment of his self.
- derived from the concept of macrocosm and microcosm
Another connotation that can be ascribed to the term is a meaning derived from the concept of macrocosm and microcosm
Macrocosm and Microcosm is a schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the mid-point is Man, who summarizes the cosmos.
Macrocosm is the great world or universe; the universe considered as a whole the total or entire complex structure of something microcosm is a little world; a world in miniature human beings, humanity, society, or the like, viewed as anepitome or miniature of the world or universe.
There is a unifying factor that traverses this greater world the macrocosm and the individual the microcosm and it is the consciousness of the world around us that grants us the mental faculty we humans possess. Our education, our perceptions, our understanding of the world is all the result of this intelligence that we gather.
Educosm is an effort, a place, a space, a time in passing that provides the opportunity to the scholars to learn, appreciate, understand, imbibe the great knowledge that is all encompassing, be it the science, art, philosophy or the mere facts of it.
