	Test image? matrix?? You've lost me.

	I didn't intend to imply it was *meant* to be; but, alas!, so it 
is in fact to those without background. Very similarly, those fluent in a 
given language usually imagine it utterly easy -- until they try to teach 
it to others unfamiliar with it. 

	Or to take a third case, I could give you a lecture off the top 
of my head, effortlessly, on the history and theory of the Germanic 
languages and literatures, which (unless you're already knowledgeable or 
I pitched it appropriately (knowing how by long practice)) you'd find 
bewildering. Otoh, that double parenthesis I just committed probably 
won't've bothered you nearly so much as it would have an English major.

	In all cases, the adept have learned so much, for so long, that 
they disremember the effort it once took (in early childhood, in the case 
of a mother tongue).
