Yeeaah, and No
Try to understand this.
YOU BELIEVE THIS, Because it just works for you.
I.T. guys are like this (after a while be get very very very good at what we do) at that point, The baseline for what was once simple has now become Retarded level, and SIMPLE has had the bar raised
we get caught in a zone at times
here' s an example
i was fixing a mates Computer yesterday, Power supply issue, 2 Capacitors were blown.
for me it was easy to identify
for him. the mere fact that i took 4 screws of the Power supply housing to just look at it, was rocket science level to him.
i cracked out the soldering iron, replaced the two caps and voila.... it now works, ... Not rocket science.
but TO HIM, it appears that way
he then gave me his mixing board
i replaced 3 Caps, 1 Inductor, 1 Fuse
it works now
to me this was fun and simple and made perfect logical sense
as i did this stuff, i explained to him what a cap does, what an inductor does etc.
he understood it but felt like he was on a whole new level just because he knew what a capacitor now does.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND MATE
TO THEM, it's complicated
TO US... IT'S SIMPLE
because, we do this all the time that we need to keep learning so it doesn't become boring.
so what i was trying to say , was this...
yes it was all pattern recognition
but, NOT ALL Human brains work Visually or Logically
You can factor this into your program if you like
but, it's a fact, Not everyone is visual (i personally am )
of course you can, but you won't codify the Human brain (or at least Your Brain) Completely.
but IN PART.... Yes, you probably will
LOL...... KID IN A CANDY STORE,
there's no other way to explain it
You're probably gonna lock yourself in a basement for 2 years with nothing but Instant Noodle's , a Kettle, Some Running water and some tinned food
You'll emerge 2 years later and it'll take like a month to adjust to SUNLIGHT
Good luck to you mate,
i can see this is going to be fun for you
Keep going with it
