The surprise would have been any other answer. If they tell you that you don’t leap on your first thought, well you just tell them they’re full of beans.

How do we get an idea through reading a text for example?
I assume that by "get an idea" you mean some type of experiencing that occurs that is caused by a state of the brain.

I further assume that our brains are similar enough that the states produced are similar.

Then it is just a signal pathway with a correlation data set. So the author is idea experiencing and can represent the idea as a character string in some language by accessing correlations of stored in his brain. Once the idea is represented in the syntax of some language the brain decides to write or type the syntax and activates the required motor neurons again accessing a host of data. The paper, or screen etc is usually viewed using light and the optical receptors, eyes, which transduce the signal to electrical chemistry on the optic nerves of the reader. They enter the brain in the back and are further processed. The processing results in the causation of idea experiencing as the final transduction in the brain. The idea experiencing of the author is correlated with the idea experiencing of the reader because of the similarity of their brains and the training process that has occurred for both.
