    in a particular sequence.

    The memories we need to solve a problem do not necessarily appear in a particular sequence.
    One reason for this is that we do not attend to our experiences in an organized way.
    The brain evolved to scan the world, not to attend to just one aspect of it. Each new scan may gather cues for memories. This is how we survived throughout evolution, and it makes a satisfying explanation for why we are so attracted to novel events or objects. .Anything that is not part of our former experience can be a danger or an opportunity.
    It is important to constantly examine the world for the new. In fact, we look forward to these interruptions and discoveries, so we scan and remember. If what we see is not in our memory . if it is novel . it gains special significance. We identify the new by discovering that we don't remember it!
    ==================================
    What does the underlined mean? Does it mean "while we are scanning new things, we randomly recall our memories related to them?"

    Re: in a particular sequence.

    What is the meaning of this: 〔we need to solve a problem〕?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
