In order to learn *

A.s.a. H.'s training curriculum attempts to expose Asa to the simplest concepts first and then gradually grow more complex concepts on top of these (hierarchically). Complex concepts are assembled (emerge) out of combinations of simpler concepts. This is rather different from what happens with human infants.  Infants can not be totally shielded from the influences of the (complex) outside world. To what degree will this make it harder for Asa and humans to understand each other? To what degree will Asa's (model of) reality differ from a human's?
