Outdated mind

Is your mind out-of-date?

When you’re asked a question you know the answer to, what happens when you respond?

Option 1: You respond immediately with cached information in your mind, available from the last time you thought about this topic.

Option 2: You pause, refresh the cache by considering what you now think about it, and share that information when it’s available.

Websites use caches to load data faster.

So do our minds.

Websites know to refresh their caches periodically.

So too should we, with our minds.
