What we experience/learn changes perception. The brain is indeed wide enough to fit the sky and you beside. Each person has a reality based on his/her life experiences and the stimuli the brain receives. It seems each brain accepts information/stimuli differently (likes and dislikes) creating very different complex people compiled with the ability store enormous amounts of knowledge. Very different complex people learn differently accept knowledge in various ways and create new/different outcomes based on the same stimuli. 

I think what interests me so much about this topic is the human need to simplify the brain, yet is remains so complex. What are the best ways to help students accept the complexities of learning?
