“Reflection involves not simply a sequence of ideas, but a consequence – a consecutive ordering in such a way that each determines the next as its proper outcome, while each in turn leans back on its predecessors.  The successive portions of the reflective thought grow out of one another and support one another; they do not come and go in a medley.  Each phase is a step from something to something – technically speaking, it is a term of thought.” -John Dewey
