Teaching = Learning, FOR REAL

I can't tell you how much you learn when you have to teach. In physics, for instance, taking an idea from a text book or experiment and assimilating it into your understanding is relatively easy. But having to explain that concept in a way that others (especially outside of your "field) understand almost always leads me to deeper understanding. I never discover shit I didn't already know, but the importance of things becomes striking. I hope that made some sense.
