Excerpts from the discussion
@11:38 Sappho: Memory: implicit and explicit. Is this related to how we form habits? When we are learning a new habit of skill we have to train ourselves. Once we've learned it, we don't have to think about it any more.
@27:36 jagnitti: The metabolism/lecture metaphor is really interesting. If something is already pre-processed (as in white bread or a lecture), it's not as beneficial for your body/mind.
@36:29 Katzvdp:"There is a lot that can be learned from theater."
