The League of what?
Polymathic adventurers like having adventures, and they are interested in lots of things. Things described by science, by words, by pictures and also knowledge encoded into multi-modal activity. By this I mean anything that involves a physical skill of some sort, a human skill: cookery, painting, gardening , martial arts, dance, acting, singing, hunting with falcons, pogo sticking, juggling.
The multi-modal skill will give you some very human reference points. Why something is hard, how it could be easier, what a breakthrough looks and feels like, the amount of energy needed to make something work or learn something new. These reference points and rules of thumb provide the basis of a learning strategy you can apply to anything. It is a major key to becoming more polymathic. (W're all a bit polymathic already).
What else? Oh yes, Aikido master Ueshiba sensei used to say that in his day a student had to steal a technique from the teacher, it wouldn't be given, let alone 'taught'...
This blog has 100s of articles covering a wide variety of subjects- the simple life, travel, self-help and writing being the main pillars of the project.
I also give occasional talks and consulting converstions on polymathics and a few other things.
Much of it spins off from the 10 books I have written, all available at Amazon among other places. The latest two being:

Sunday Times (May 19 2013) say: "Robert Twigger's ambitious biography of the Nile is an unexpected triumph...a scintillatingly colourful account of a river and a region Twigger knows intimately...an elegiac moving book...hugely entertaining...probably the author's magnum opus"
