I'm not sure what progress report this falls under, since I'm listening to the audio book. I wanted to comment that I love how Charlie finds the world profoundly mysterious as he learns more. He questions his own identity in a deeply philosophical way.

Heightened intelligence seems to make a person more easily identify the things others take for granted. If you take something for granted, you usually aren't aware of it.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.” - Douglas Adams
