Chances are, you won't naturally remember all these facts, and that's where the memorization comes in. To paraphrase a saying that LessWrong readers will recognize, your map is not the territory. Your job is to add as many features to your map as you can to make it resemble the territory as closely as possible. The more detailed the features on your map, the closer you will be to having an accurate idea of the territory.

knowledge accumulationonly comes from memorization? Perhaps it’s better to say it comes from applying the knowledge?!? I believe in deeply learning something and then writing it down, filing in a place you can remember and then forgetting it :-) #ymmv
