Unlearning.

A five year old boy, strolling with his father on a New Jersey beach, sees a large standpipe arcing from the packed sand near the high-tide line, spewing a slurry of sand and smelly water diverted from a pumping operation on the bay behind the barrier island.

“Daddy!  THAT’S where the water comes from!”

The ocean is impossibly large to a five year old.  The lifetime of learning ahead of him, larger still.

If the father stops to explain the beach replenishment project to him, the Great Ocean Faucet Concept will disappear from the boy’s mind instantly.

Will he?
