History of ideas

Some people remember what they see. Some remember what they feel. Some what they read, Some people remember everything they hear.

Each person has recall strengths and weaknesses and these affect how they behave and learn.

A great basketball player learns well through movement. A great theoretical physicist learns thought manipulating symbols. Each can not learn or behave successfully in the other’s domain with the thinking tools he or she has.


How did each develop their strengths and weaknesses? Genetics and experience both play a role. Missing genes or missing experience, even different orders of the same experiences account for the content and processes of one’s thinking..

So it is with the development of the Time Blind concept. My own weaknesses in memory and thought processes and my own order of experiences, led me to discover and define limitations in processing of temporal information. The story I tell in the two Time Blind books exists because of a peculiar set of genetics, and experiences.
