Knowledge darwinism

Knowledge darwinism is a competition of pieces of knowledge for survival in memory. Contradictory pieces are unlikely to survive. Items that say the same thing in a different way may also compete to establish strong memory. In incremental reading, it is relatively cheap to generate excess cloze deletions that ask the same question differently. Once one of those clozes produces a good recall of a given piece, others may fall in line and disappear from view.
