The 10,000 hour rule is a situational example, and is a falsehood relative to learning. We either associate or sequence neural inputs from our senses with existing neural storage. We do so subconsciously based upon all conscious and subconscious inputs during our waking hours. During sleep, and other mindful periods, our brain categorizes the inputs. Same versus not-same. If new stimulae do not fit existing patterns, we associate irregularly or create new patterns.
The current hypothesis is that new patterns are energetically taxing, so the brain will attempt to ‘fit’ the new with the existing – hence confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance. We can comfortably dismiss ‘sameness’ – without wasting precious bioenergy to do so. (Forget where you placed your keys or your glasses – same place as always…). Micromastery and other designed teaching learning tools (when customized to the individual and existing experience) can accelerate the growth and change process by opening new neural pathways at lower biological cost – and creating new perceptions.
