Great ! I often say to people:  "Try not to unlearn because that does not work - but do learn additional skills and routines, keeping the history in your backpack as a useful source."

Good Learning! What is meant by play with words?

Hemendra, how exactly do you unlearn things. I agree we often need to but what is the process you go through?
