So all transfer must in essence be based on pattern recognition. The only thing that differs between the several methods of transfer is the type of pattern. A pattern can be geometrical or textual or conceptual for instance. Only the ability to find lookalikes can multiply the solution from one problem to another.
I have analyzed the questions I ask myself during the phase of "adding intelligence". I can divide them in two: questions that relate to the geometrical patterns of the squares and questions that relate to the thoughtprocess during solution.
As you might remember I distinguished between two moments when to add intelligence:
- During storage of a pattern (= automating intelligence)
- During the solution of a problem (=conscious thinking)
- All transfer is based on pattern recognition. Only the type of pattern might differ.
- All transfer is realized at the moment of storage of a pattern.
- CT favours the geometrical patterns of the pieces as type of pattern (plan A)
- My analysis of plan B boils down in the end to the geometrical patterns of the squares.
I realize I have made a few quantum leaps, so I hope you can follow.
To get an idea:
White to move.
It is 1900 rated problem. You find the solution here.
You can find the best solution when you are able to identify the focal points of the position:
f8, a3, f3, d1.
During storage time we should find a method to make this invisible pattern explicit.
