What does it mean to discover?

To discover is to have the light go on in your head, to know, even when no one else around you knows, that you know something you didn't know before. Discovering is kind of like finding something you thought you lost or opening a present that you really like but didn't expect. It's being outside and suddenly realizing how beautiful something is. It's finding something in the world or in someone else or in yourself that you didn't see before and finally understanding it. It's when you "get it."  Discovery is what happens when learning is cool.
