      When you learn something, learn its concept, not just its name. Then explain it in simple words so that even a 10 year old can understand.

      Is this where the concept of ELI5 (explain like I'm 5) came from? Brilliant.

      Feynman is one of my favorites. I clearly remember the first time I read the "Energy makes it go." story. His father reminds me of my father, especially the "Martian" story.

        I so enjoyed this article that I Googled Feynman. And I got to hear him speak and what a delight, what an inspiration! You are lucky to have had a father like him. You have that same curiosity! Thanks so much for turning me on to this - wonderful!

      Love this analogy: “Otherwise, it’s like having a belly-full meal that has been chewed but not digested, and hence can not nourish us.” The Feynman Technique is a great way to actually learn beyond just naming something. Really interesting.
