>From another news group ([Cognitive Neuroscience Forum]) comes this clip:
                "In learning a new motor task, there appear to be two processes 
happening at once," says Reza Shadmehr, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of 
Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "One 
is the learning of the motor commands in the task, and the other is critiquing 
the learning, much the way a 'coach' behaves. Learning the next similar task 
goes faster, because the coach knows which errors are most worthy of attention. 
In effect, this second process leaves a memory of the errors that were 
experienced during the training, so the re-experience of those errors makes the 
learning go faster."
This argues for the approach I described earlier, i.e., one search for 
evidence-for facts and rules to consider in the context analysis, and another 
search for evidence-against facts and rules to consider in the anti-context 
analysis.      (01)

Disagreement heartily appreciated,
