I am intrigued by your writings Will; this one however has some components that pose new questions for me. Specifically, I have transitioned to teaching SAT and ACT prep, in one-to-one and classroom settings. What surprised me most is the massive amount that I DO remember, from High School, all those many years ago. To my knowledge, I have not used any of it, but there it is. Of course you may need to blow the dust off of it sometimes to refresh the facility of using it. I certainly never had any tutors working with me then and yet the memories are firmly embedded.
Hopefully the students I teach now will have the use of higher concepts for use in higher callings, “just in case”.
