About the Trivium

← Back to Main About Page ↓ Trivium ↓ Quadrivium ↓ Why?
Mnemonic Device:
Pythagorean Triangle

First, we intake information using our five senses:
sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste.  Next,
we are able to use the trivium  method,
like our natural operating system, to
systematically think critically
and  to  process  all  of  the
information    collected.
This  is  applied  to
fields   of   study
like  the  core


Trivium Method of Learning...Anything
StepOther Names
Computer Analogy
1. GRAMMARKnowledgeInput
Finding and substantially answering the questions "Who, What, Where, and When" of the basic components.

 * Focus of Game
Relating the above components to each other, while removing contradictions, and answering "Why".

3. RHETORICWisdomOutput
Answering "How", with full demonstration of the practical applications of the "Who, What, Where, When, and Why".

In this systematic learning process, grammar is the foundation for logic. Then together, grammar and logic become the foundation for rhetoric.

These days, many mainstream talking heads of all stripes, switch the order of the trivium steps. Sometimes this is intentionally manipulative, often leading with the Why.

Putting your logic before your grammar can easily result in acting on conclusions before establishing your basic definitions, facts, and evidence of those conclusions' foundational components.

Applied systematically, the trivium method acts like a virus scan for your brain to work through useful information and conclusions to plans of action with more predictable results.

By using these steps in order while figuring out anything new, you will more reliably determine how (rhetoric, actions) to achieve your desired results to safely swim through life.

Quadrivium: "The Four Roads"

This inherent learning process can then be applied to gain wisdom in any field of study or interest. Following the trivium, four core subjects/arts form the quadrivium.

1. ArithmeticStudy of Pure Number
2 + 2 = 4,       1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 ...

2. GeometryStudy of Number in Space
2 Points Create a Line,   3 Create a Plane...

3. MusicStudy of Number in Time
Higher Frequency = Higher Pitch,
Shorter Pause Between Beats/Notes = Faster Music...

4. AstronomyStudy of Number in Space and Time
Earth Travels Around The Sun Once Every ~365 Days...
