| Learn to write the stupid way
The birds sing, the grass grows, and the wind blows the flowers. Dylan Thomas, who wrote “Don’t Go Meek into That Good Night”
I don’t care where the images of a poem are fished: you can fish them, if you like, from the deepest depths of the sea of your hidden self; but before they reach the manuscript they must go through all the rational processing of an extraordinary intellect; on the other hand, The Surrealists recorded in their manuscripts the words that emerged from the chaos; they did not shape them or put them into order, for chaos was form and order. This seems too self-righteous to me. The surrealists imagine that whatever they fish out from the subconscious self, and record it in paint or words, there is inherently a certain interest or a certain value. I deny this. One of the poet’s crafts is to make people understand and express clearly what emerges from the subconscious mind; one of the important functions of the poet of extraordinary talent is to choose from the numerous intangible images of the subconscious those things that best meet the imaginary goal, and then write. the best psalms.
Whether it is writing a poem or an article, although all images and viewpoints are input through the cognitive framework, in the output stage, the brain, the queen ant, still needs to drive countless neural ants to move memory, knowledge, terminology, experience, Cognitive fragments, such as stories and information, come together to form a complete puzzle.
What is the best way to present cognitive fragments in reality?
The answer is cards .
Why cards? I must also say something about artificial intelligence and cognitive science.
Minsky , the father of artificial intelligence, believed: “The human brain is extremely complex, with judgment, reasoning, memory, and emotions, but it is still a machine in essence. This machine can be simulated by a computer.” Now this statement It is estimated that it is a bit unbelievable, but this concept drove Minsky to set up the artificial intelligence laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The laboratory is still the most cutting-edge and most authoritative academic institution in this discipline until today.
If the above doesn’t explain anything, you might as well imagine that you are a computer. This computer is a little different from the computers we use now. Your CPU is very powerful and can operate at high speed. You were still thinking about this technical problem a second ago How to solve it, you will be thinking about what to eat tonight in the next second; your hard drive is huge and can store a lot of content, even if you keep reading books and watching movies, you still remember what your elementary school classmates looked like, ————Your memory is so low that you take a 45-minute class and your brain is exhausted; it’s so low that you can’t remember more than 7 points in an article… In the words of cognitive science In other words, your working memory span is limited.
The card is the external extension of your brain’s memory. It can not only record the high-speed reading and writing tracks of your brain, but also help present well-organized information.
To give three more examples, when you were young, when you were writing essays, you often found that you couldn’t start with a large essay book, but you could write a full page for the greeting cards you wrote to your classmates; Articles are intelligently and automatically divided into three columns, so that your brain can easily read; even the current news website, it is impossible for it to cover the entire screen with text…
If I add another example, then I can say that this article of mine is written with cards.
Well, in fact, I have said so much before, I am just stating the benefits of card writing, but this is not enough, I need more stories to prove it, of course, the best story is still my own story.
As Dylan Thomas said:
Though the words of a wise man are not as vigorous as thunder and lightning,
Though well aware that returning to darkness is an unchanging law,
They will not go gentle into that good night.
Sincerely, Chen Sufeng

The follow-up of “Sharing My Process of Reading Papers in 30 Days” written a few days ago will appear on my blog and official account. The newsletter presents my thinking process, and the blog and official account present the results of my thinking.
In my opinion, the former is more important.
