The simplest and costly idea of prediction

Think of mind as a system that adds a new dimension to its space everytime it encounters a new variable in life.

Every time a variable changes from one value to another value, it tries to justify the change by the changes in other existing variables in its space and/or takes note of any plausible new variable that might be responsible for the change.

This way it also finds the relevant variables in different situations and contexts through experience and eventually learns to look for patterns in these relevant variables for predicting the target variable.
