to elite athelete. Sports like ice skating are not really like anything
humans evolved to do, but involve physical and cognitive "modules"
evolved for other purposes, combined in novel ways. Scientific
understanding of this has made it possible to teach atheletes to perform
feats once thought impossible, like "quadruple jumps". I see no reason
this shouldn't also apply to mathematics.

Oh, so presumably you have now explained the "mystery of Ramanujan"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Srinivasa_Ramanujan)?
