1. You can think of a learning mind as a tool for mapping cause and effect relationships by being affected by them.E.g.:If you live among speakers of a language you experience a lot of interactions (e.g. people refer to an object with the same sound) ---> these change your mind (associations created via neurons) ---> better knowledge of language (better mapping between variables in this domain)
2. However, when you move a mind to a space with more data of a subject, other variables can also change, which might have a negative impact and can disable the mind.E.g.:If you want to find out how to float on water, jumping into a deep pool and experimenting with motions will help in finding the ones that achieve this (again, the mind is creating connection between movements done with the limbs and how they affect movement in the water). However, if you can’t find the correct motions, you will sink to the bottom. ---> your brain will not receive oxygen ---> your mind is disabled (death)
3. So you want to be careful about which space you move a mind to. It is not enough to have more data, you should control other variables to make sure the mind is safe.E.g.:Learn the basics of swimming in shallow water.4. As minds change through learning, variables may have different effect on them than before.E.g.:If you know how to swim, jumping into a deep pool won’t kill you anymore in most circumstances.
