Daniel Kim advised to think of learning as a wheel that rotates and tour, which consists of four relevant elements, such as: the formation of concepts, testing concepts, experience and meditation. Of course, the knowledge that we acquire when learning wheel rotates and revolves, is not lost. We store in our memory the know – how and the know – why choose between multiple turns of the wheel a few assumptions, concepts, and theories about how the world works.
