Appreciate the write up. Interesting.

I’m curious what you think to my response to #4, knowing a little bit of everything. I personally tend to agree with that notion, but knowing little facts such as who the 5th president is (which the work to find that out can be done by Google) I don’t think isn’t as important as knowing what one of the cognitive biases of the mind are.

One is a memorization of a fact while the other is exercising how in fact the mind thinks and perceives the world.

Rather than memorizing facts that our phones can easily find for us, why not internalize more intrinsic, and valuable information that can be applied in a more broad sense?

Just my thoughts on that bullet point. Thanks and have a great day!
