‘Developmental psych (cognitive) helps me when I get this. View your life as you from a baby and look at what other babies, then toddlers, then preschoolers went through cognitively to be able to then start school at age 5. Stop there. Your cognitive development in that 0-4 is amazing. From that unfolds all that came since. Just after birth, you saw a face and the systems in your brain abstracted that into a pattern which fired your muscles to form a similar pattern with YOUR face. Right from the get go, you’re online. “Theory theory” is my favorite. Basically that yes, it *is* theories all the way down. Combined with “it’s all metaphors/analogies” (physical imitation is analogizing as it first gets abstracted then you do it) and you can see it all as a series of choices – so many little choices all of the time. So, stratas on top of that. Social interaction, micro and macro, ideological, political, scientific, “doing stuff”. And so much theory-making. But that you from that core start did so much and you unfolded. I think you’re missing your “wow”. That’s one of my “wows”.’
