I was correct in 2002

I’m cleaning out some digital files… making sure I have copies of photographs and videos and deleting gigabytes of digital detritus. Luckily, I found a document written in 2002 on which I wrote:

Learning. Such a simple idea. We all have done it for our whole lives. As humans, we have done it since the inception of the species. It has been the subject of philosophical discourse for centuries. Yet we seem to act like we have no idea how it might work.

And also this one:

Learning. A human activity full of myth and mystery, and dedicated to creating fading and false memories.
