Let me put it this way, BS ~ !~~~ ~~~

My childhood training involved learning to play a saxaphone and a clarinet ~ they have different finger schema but you have to learn to play both at the same speed when you participate in a music group.

That was followed by learning to type REALLY REALLY REALLY fast ~ 238 wpm on an electric typewriter (specially geared so it could go that fast).

Then, in the Army I discovered MACHINE GUNS. Due to my skill at firing bursts of 2, bursts of 3, bursts of 4, bursts of..... ~ whatever length you needed, in whatever order desired, I was picked to work with another fellow at firing all sorts of machineguns for the background fire in the John Wayne Vietnam war epic titled "The Green Beret".

I'm referred to in the credits as Fort Benning ~

I can still stomp them in the dirt when it comes to PacMan.

The error the analyst makes is imagining the development of eye-hand coordination to a high degree is necessarily limited to whatever you were seeing at the time you learned to do the trick. If it were I"d only be able to fire machine guns if I had a piece off paper in front of me ~ and I will assure anyone, I can fire machineguns with the best of them, paper or no paper!

No, Grossman’s analysis is not about coordination. It’s about overcoming our natural resistance to KILL ANOTHER HUMAN BEING.
