Almost everything that we think is real is actually a construction of inferences and interpretations that we misinterpret as reality. And unfortunately the belief that we are directly observing and understanding ‘reality’ discourages us from trying to change it. Hence our concept of ‘reality’ is the enemy of innovation.

Learning is a process of becoming rather than a process of acquiring.

To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the mind

You do not “make meaning” or “construct meaning”, you grow meaning.

Oh, and

knowledge is like finding Waldo.

I like that.
