There is a difference between understanding an idea from embodied idea. The latter is verified by multitudes, contexts, criticisms, parallel ideas.
Concept vs realization about the thing. There are concepts easy to understand but hard to grasp. Understanding is simply when your head intuitively connects to examples. Than somebody explaining the problem gives all sorts of examples from many angles. This is when you get to gradually get to grasp it in a larger extend.
Bias towards action.
Abstract – Real. Image–Matter. Thought–Action. The difference between something that is theoretically existing and existing in real life. Difference between imagining something and rendering it by doing, by granularly going through its matter. Examples James Clear – if you want to workout just start doing it for 5min (your body, clocks inside you need to get use to it) You cannot learn something by thinking about it, you have to start doing it. Doing something is rendering the topic with more circuits of yours. (with body or different circuits of your brain). When you create a high resolution memory of something you can stack new thing on top of it. Learning by doing is creating rich network of connections that with practice becomes more entangled and higher resolution Jim Collins local optimum. You cannot understand all the dimensions of moderately complex problem. Start with the best one and than think about following move. The same goes with learning new skill. You cannot think hard to learn badminton you need to start do it.
Learning by long exposure
Agents in you may need the same exposure as when say circadian clocks are adjusted. When you change time zones it’s good for you to expose yourself to sunlight on the morning and something in you doesn’t learn in a binary way. One momentary exposure is not enough. You need to sit there for like 10-20 minutes.
