osmosis (n.)

the process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas, knowledge

Merriam Webster definition, ” a usually effortless often unconscious assimilation”. I found this word in the text ‘How better photos can help you document, and shape, your neighborhood’ by Patrick Sission

“All of my writing and blogging is osmosis from my dad…”

this is when we hear something, or learn something new, and unknowingly incorporate it into ourselves, whether it be our dialogue,  habits etc.  this word could even be substituted for learned.

so this sentence now means “All of my writing and blogging, i learned from my dad…”
