@septentriones: Haha, what you're saying is actually quite indeed close to correct, though there is a bit more. We are a culmination of our experiences, but that doesn't mean that our minds cannot advance further than that, for all that is required is the idea of an experience, for example, I have never been sledding down a mountain.
