I'm constantly learning things that alter things I'm taken as Basic Fact. "I thought I already knew how this was done. I that I knew everything about this."
I did not.
I'm relearning things roundabout.
I was wondering aloud if other people always were as well, or if they just weren't *actively* learning them the way kires and wispfox and I do, or if they weren't noticing them at all. kires figured it was more that last one - that, once they got The Way To Do Things settled in their heads, they just didn't see anything else.
In addition: I'm hyperverbal. Which can drive some people a little crazy. Like whenever volta wants me to arrive at a conclusion.... well, he knows that no one learns things if they're just told. So he'll nudge me and just wait for me to come to said conclusion. As I do so, I realize that he nudged me in the first place. So I'll go hyperverbal describing both how I arrived at said conclusion and how and why he nudged me and and and...
I'm just mapping out how my brain works.
kires, in response to my description of this, said words to the effect of not knowing how his own brain worked, in that no one can really know how their own brain works.
"Well. That's why I'm making the map."
I need to know I need to know I need to know.
