    I was wondering if you were waiting. If you knew your intent, you probably also know that writing correctly is the other half of reading correctly. Literacy in general is only a portion of how knowledge is transfered. If there are any foundations of knowledge, there are two pillars - that which is knowable, and the knower. Knowledge, however, is only one property of intelligence. In the other hand is creativity, which changes or births things into existence.

    I noticed it after I'd posted and then I thought in a thread which mentioned reading someone is bound to notice it. Right?

    Human being cannot learn much of anything without early contact and communication with other individuals. If we lacked the ability to communicate information to each other from generation to generation we would all be much like the feral children who matured away from human contact. At most we would be animals with little understanding of anything other than the most basic facts needed for survival. The development of what most people categorize as knowledge, science, art, and various cultural practices, require communication.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?
