Song of Metacognition

my computer is acting up again. it’s claiming that the music coming out of it is Stravinky’s Le Sacre du printemps, when everybody here knows it’s actually Willow Weep for Me by  Ann Renell. Or is it?

speaking of which, i was about to sing you a song of metacognition, but now the words have escaped me. i think it goes something along the lines of :

I know I know something

something concerning my own cognitive processes

or anything related to them

the learning-revelant  properties of information

or data

(refrain)

my prefrontal cortex is sending me signals in a feedback loop

if I notice i am having more trouble learning A than B

if it strikes me that I should double check C before accepting it as a fact

Why do I make judgments about the strength of my own memories?

And then use those judgments to guide my behavior?

What kind of metacognologist

am I?

(refrain)

my prefrontal cortex is sending me signals in a feedback loop

if I notice i am having more trouble learning A than B

if it strikes me that I should double check C before accepting it as a fact

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
