Rainbow Connection

A plaque at the entrance to The Museum Of Jurassic Technology reads, "The learner must be led always from familiar objects toward the unfamiliar; guided along, as it were, a chain of flowers into the mysteries of life."

Some people don't have to be led very far.

Confusion is the sensation of learning. It's the disorienting feeling of new neural pathways being formed in the brain. Wonder is taking a step back to watch these new connections fire over and over again, oohing and aahing at them like a fireworks display.
