Exploring and Learning

There is so much to explore in the universe everywhere. I want to continue to learn more about my mind and nature and the universe, but how can I continue to learn and not spend all of my time online?

Read books? Learn from others?

@michaelheyn,
You can learn on the internet as well. Sites like Coursera.org and Ted.com are obviously incredible for learning.
Other things would be books (audiobooks and lectures, too), psychedelics (combined with reflection), traveling, documentaries (I try to watch one every day), just generally being perceptive while in public and asking questions.

-edit-
Most of all, don’t be afraid of being wrong and then corrected. That is by far the best way to learn if you keep an open mind.
If you want to learn facts somewhat quickly, tape some post it-notes around the house to places you visit and look at often (the wall opposite to the toilet, the fridge, next to your bed) and write facts on them. It’s simple memorization, but it works well over time.

Like others have said, books. Actually, I feel with books I learn more because I am less likely to try to validate the claims the text is making by opening up a new tab and I simply absorb the information, learn from it, and think about it instead of searching for ‘facts’. When you process information fully, regardless of whether or not it is entirely accurate, it helps build your ability to disseminate information. When we do internet research, or at least when I do, I tend to skip from site to site, after the ‘true’ way of thinking. I think about the information I’m reading, but I am not sitting with it and pondering it for too long before I jump to the next site. A book sort of forces you to think more about what you are reading. Just hop in to you local library or book store and look at books on the fields you are interested in and start reading whatever pops out at you.
