"You wouldn't want to add updates and upgrades to a fundamentally crappy cell phone; This mirrors how the brain develops." #readingToday
"In other words, you wouldn't want to add updates and upgrades to a fundamentally crappy cell phone; you should only do this for one that is already strong at its core. This mirrors how the brain develops. When it grows, it is adding connections, and therefore complexifying itself: adding dimensions to the space of possibility, and forging new pathways of neuroelectric connectivity. But it's doing so according to feedback on what worked and didn't work in the past. The internal patterns of activity that worked (the useful assumptions) are reinforced, and those that didn't work (the no-longer-useful assumptions) are lost."
