Backpedalling to what is antecedent

It’s funny what all goes into explaining a simple concept. It can be difficult knowing where to start.

Knowledge builds on itself and I often find myself backpedalling to comment on what is antecedent.

At a certain point you have to make assumptions about what the other person already knows. In everyday conversation we start an explanation from somewhere and course-correct based on cues of understanding & non-understanding from the other person.
