If you want to master something, what process do you think you need to go through?
If it is a completely new area, your mind is probably blank or confused at first while diving into the pool of data. But after some time, you get yourself organised and is able to proceed with greater ease.
Through more data plunging and thinking, you get better and better, And you would reach mastery through even more practice and repetition.
When you are at that confused state of learning, not sure which direction to take, you are in the hypnosis state. You have to pass through this stage to gain your mastery. There is no shortcut.
