"A student who can answer questions without understanding them is a student with an expiration date." You'll understand. Good discussion of the question of whether there is some mathematical knowledge that is beyond the innate 'limit' of students, or whether every student is (theoretically) able to master every mathematical concept. The disclaimer in the blog ("I can't draw") also makes me wonder whether there's an art ceiling.
