The learning process occurs within the mind of the learner - or not at all.

'Knowledge' is an abstraction and doesn't occur anywhere.

The experience of the student always happens in the same place - within
their own mind. As I pointed out in a previous email, virtual experiences
are real experiences. In the mind of the student, as, for us all, reality is
a simulation.
