    On the other hand, can you be an expert on evrything ? So for example if I have a GPS and not care for the way, then does it leave some space for other activities like science, sport or music ?

    I love you how you say that lectures are on the way out because they are too easy to tune out, but your whole series is just a set of lectures that your team has put together with some fun graphics. It seems your videos are designed to speak to gun not drew.

    i read ‘the chat’ for some reason. filled in the a because i saw the h in ‘the’ so used a h in ‘cat’, leading me to think it had a letter missing, and the first thing that made sense was ‘chat’. i think.

    "If you really want to learn, get better at anything, have any chance of becoming an expert, you have to be willing to be UN-comfortable. Because thinking takes effort, it involves fighting through confusion and for most of us, that's at least, somewhat, UN-pleasant."
    I see what u did there, Derek.

    It's funny how the relationship between the CPU and GPU in todays computing pretty much relates perfectly to this. The GPU is Gun who can process information at an incredible rate but not at a very accurate rate comparing to the CPU which - if it fucks up will lead to a crash (most likely). CPU related crashes are extremely rare but they have occurred, GPU's are not as accurate. Interesting. Why am I wasting my time commenting on Youtube though, who knows...

    I like the whole idea of "muscle memory". My most recent interaction with this phenomenon was with the game One Finger Death Punch, i played for so long that my hand-eye coordination felt like it had improved, it was only after putting the game down and doing other stuff for a couple weeks and coming back that i realised it was my brain that was just used to sending a signal to my fingers every time an enemy appeared and eventually i learned how to play fast without focusing too much on what is going on, i was able to take on hoards (and i mean 200+ waves of enemies) while holding a conversation or trying to remember something.
    p.s. I'm definitely liking this video to be able to find it later on and probably show it to my friends.

    Reverse-steering bike creators misses one important thing: bikes are designed to provide support in the directon the rider are tilting self into, so it's instinctive impulse to secure self from falling what helps riding a bike. By reversing the steering they forcing a rider to struggle over this instinctive impulse of self-preservation in order to actually secure self by not falling at all.
    So it's not exactly clear example.

    Great video! I am wondering if this is what makes life different for people on the autism spectrum, like myself. I have to use Drew constantly to make sense of it all, especially in social situations or when there are a lot of external stimuli. It puts the current thinking on autism spectrum disorders in a different perspective... Lots to think about (and I actually like thinking).
