An hypothesis concerning natural learning is presented. It places emphasis not on how the brain learns per se, but rather, on how the brain selectively forgets, wherein it is the forgetting that leaves the learning in place by default. This lays the foundation for a construct of natural reasoning (including problem solving), which requires the additional ability for the brain to control its own focus, via feedback tracts. The construct is then applied to the study of conscious problem solving processes.
