Re: The Path of Learning
Thanks Ting. Janet that sounds like quite a feat. Especially learning how to read as you describe.
No there is no magic. My best friend was not academic at all and didn't learn much about reading and writing until he was 30. He learned many things and attained many skills prior to that but they all involved that same procedure as I described. A baby learns many things too at a great rate I may add yet still follows that procedure even when not able to read or even talk. Gathers data though and has a mind.
I can just see your face now when after gathering data through observation and trial and error finally understood (a mind thing) how to tie your shoelace and soon after that could do it competently and even at ease. What a lovely smiling face.
