A Lesson In Repetition
One of the most prominent phrases in Dr. Michael Ryce’s lectures is, “building the brain cells”. This means to be exposed to new material and new perspectives until one begins to understand things in a completely new way. The fact of the matter is that most of us live in the past. Not by conscious choice, but simply because of the way the brain works. Our brains might be said to store information in file systems and whenever a stimulus triggers a file, everything in that file comes into our conscious mind. Another way to think about it is that whenever we are presented with something, we go searching through our memories to find a way to make sense of what is happening.
