Distillation ...

The distillation of an evolving and complex idea is something all teachers should trend toward. Complexity is an outgrowth of the question/answer ladder; pulling our gaze ever forward and outward. By unearthing the root idea, that seed from which the ever-evolving and increasingly complex idea originally germinated, allows others to more fully appreciate the idea in it's entirety, and perhaps even contribute to it's further evolution. We should prune back to simplicity if we want to get to the heart of something. Complexity is a distraction. JBW
