    So Grant, in his specific case, who or what was conducting the control over your body so that you couldn 't perform immediately what you desired !? Why do you need to practice !? Something was holding you back and despite the fact you knew actualy what you wanted it took time to call the one shot you needed ! Again, what or who was holding you down, your body, your mind, both or perhaps the memes which are controlling the whole of the process !? In a sense, the practice is a way of deluting the memes out of their control, practice made them weak and finally they give in....
