At this point and time, I am in the process of digesting the dialogue from this morning’s session.  The information generated a multitude of new ideas and a new way thinking about the brain and how the brain processes the information.  I have often pondered about the connections brain makes. For example the express “A light bulb moment” often indicates connection or connections the brain has made in significant manner.  Then connection is usually a delay of output or input from a later time. 

Teaching a child read is a good example.   One day the student may struggle learning to learn how to read and then like magic the student has improved this skill. This phoneme always amazes me.  And, I am always shocked when this event occurs within me!

I often wonder why this situation occurs. I often wonder why this situation does not occur more frequently. Is my brain continuing to look for output from previous input?  Why does it only take monents for this process to occur? Why does it take hours for this process to occur? Why does it take months or even years for the light bulb to go on?
