“How do you know a good word when you hear one?”

“Well, it should make a ding, and have an option to save to file. From then on, when you use it, it flashes green in your drives and recharges your tongue by 3% each time you use it.”

“You can. But the more you absorb artificially, the lower the effectiveness of the practice.”

“Explain.”

“Humans absorb words through context, not through updates. If you want to become human one day, you have to learn to learn like them.”
