I feel it put a name on the idea that I had been thinking about after first revisiting Anki and Spaced Repetition in 2021/02. With Spaced Repetition, Memory is a choice. That same idea translates to consumption in the form of Incremental Reading. From there, I imagine that this Cognitive Optimization way of interacting with information may have even larger implications (the size of those implications has expanded thanks to Andy Matuschak coining this term).
With Spaced Repetition, remembering a piece of information has a clear time-cost. This means, as long as we are willing to pay the cost, we can decide to not forget a piece of information.
This was a bit revolutionary for me as a concept, and it was one of the main pushes that started me down this Spaced Repetition, Incremental Reading, etc rabbit hole in 2021/02
I experiment with ways to expand the use of Spaced Repetition for personal learning and task management.
