The Backwards Brain Bicycle

While I’m backing up my 80GB of data I thought I’d amuse myself by jumping onto youtube. I came across a channel called Smarter Everyday by Destin and watched the embedded video.



I’ve got to be honest, after watching it I wanted to try my hand at having a go riding the backwards brain bike. I myself ride my bike everyday to work and so was interested to see just how long it would take me to master it.

His deep revelation due to this bike that “Knowledge isn’t understanding” was a profound and interesting idea. It surprised me to learn how long it took him to learn how to ride the bike, but more interesting is how our brain works.

I’m always fascinated about things that have to do with our brains and I was blown away by this video because it revealed a very complex idea in a simple manner in which most of us can relate to, that of learning to ride a bike.
