According to George Wilhemer Fridrick Heghen: "The concept of absolute origins and its activities can only be expressed in thought, in the form of speculative science alone". . Karl Marx said: "For Heghen, the movement of thinking he personified under the name" the idea "that God created reality; reality is only appearance of ideas"

Studying grammar will only slow you down and confuse you. You will think about the rules when creating sentences instead of naturally saying a sentence like a native.

Writing an extended text at an advanced level involves not just the language
system. It poses significant challenges to our cognitive systems for memory and thinking
as well. Indeed, writers can put to use virtually everything they have learned and stored
away in long-term memory. But they can only do so if their knowledge is accessible,
either by rapidly retrieving it from long-term memory or by actively maintaining it in
short-term working memory. Thinking is so closely linked to writing, at least in mature
adults, that the two are practically twins.

assessed by a Wilcoxon paired signed-rank test on data from 51 students who took two
modules in different terms during the year. The results suggested that reﬂective practice
did develop over time. Students could readily provide descriptive information about
