## Notes...

Some civilization count by `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). Girlfriend can try itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", room you speak "one, two,three", or room you picturing "1", "2", "3"? i say them, butsometimes exercise picturing. Feynman reports that if you to speak them,you deserve to read at the exact same time, but may have trouble talking. If youpicture them, you can talk, however reading is difficult. Probably Ishould dig up the Feynman story and also flesh this out as a page? Itwould additionally be nice to have a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 addressed 2 links.
