Indeed. And that's exactly the problem; we have to guess and proceed,
guess and proceed, guess and proceed.. And in the end habits are
formed, habits which are hard to break, when we receive some new
clarification.

This is the classic case, where the words of a professor in my med
school come to mind. He used to say:

"The human mind has an almost inexhaustible capacity to accept
something which is new, regardless of its' level of difficulty. But
what is nearly impossible for it, is to un-learn something which it
already knows".
