I trusted my asleep ear instead of the weather on my phone. jumped out of bed to get my computer off the porch where i left it and it WAS rainy and windy out.  The “jumper out of bed to get computer off porch” was a set of complex motor patterns similar to that of playing musical instruments to a song that you’ve memorized. there is variation when you perform but certain actions are key. that I am able to write an essay immediately afterwards shows that essay writing may be similar if one writes a lot of essays. it’s more like jazz improvisation but even jazz has motor patterns.
