unconscious

kid: Why is it when I try to play something that is tough, after a long time practicing over and over, I can do it?
 
teacher: I don’t know, but true it works like that.
 
kid: It’s like it goes from my conscious mind to my unconscious mind.
 
teacher: Like learning language.
 
kid: Why isn’t it quicker?
 
teacher: Some say it is muscle memory, like the muscles are learning and then remember at a different speed than the speed of your mind.
 
kid: Muscles don’t have speed.
 
teacher: Why not? … snails, hummingbirds, trees, flies all have different tempo, why not people?
 
little kid: You lost me.. but maybe I’ll consider that over and over and then maybe it might make
sense.
 
teacher: I see what you did there.
kid:  Thanks. Can I ask you something else?
