|Meaning of life|
We have found out that it is meaning that we want to transfer from the study room to the tournament hall. Let's investigate this a bit further.
Today I talked to Phaedrus and I said about the position in my previous post:
"When I use trial & error I don't use logic and when I use logic reasoning I don't see the variations."
Trial & error is an highly automated activity which is semi intelligent.
It turns out that this semi intelligence is from a much lower quality than my normal reasoning.
Verbalization seems to be the only method to build understanding and meaning in the study room. At the same time we know that this verbalization is not going to make it to the tournament hall. And even it is not going to make it to the next problem most of the time.
We must find a method to assist the encoding of verbalization into something more automatic. I tried to imagine the logic findings from the position as geometrical patterns with meaning. From verbalization to mentalization, so to speak. I don't know if it works.
I wonder if child prodigies need this step of verbalization too, or that they can encode the knowledge directly without words.
