7) Put phrases neurons into Short Memory

8) Establish (or update / improve) Reason-Consequence relations between all neurons which are located in the short memory.
(I'll describe it later).

9) Merge Short Memory and Main Memory.
(I'll describe it later).

10) (Partially clean Short Memory)
(I'll describe what "Partially" means).

11) Take next statement.

12) Regularly (say, every day) apply Forgetting to the whole Main Memory.

As a result, Reader Prototype will populate its dictionaries
(Word Dictionary and Phrase Dictionary).

Main memory will keep information about relations between concepts.
(Words and phrases are concepts).
Such relations between concepts mean "Understanding of concept".


When I design Reader prototype I keep in mind Writer Prototype and
Chatter Prototype.


Questions are very welcome.
(Including "stupid" questions :-) )
