Seems backwards to conventional descriptions of the learning process as an accretion of "schema" or some other building up of knowledge but I have two reasons to argue with.
- We start off with too many neurons and spend the rest of our life losing them but enriching their connections.
- If ignorance were bliss, we should all wish to learn nothing. But that shallow truth is an old lie told in the absence of context. Ignorance is NOT bliss.
