If I remember correctly, the modern terminology for this
kind of action is "rubberducking". It's also available as
a web-based cloud-hosted ML VR SaaS, of course... ;-)

Sidenote: When you're able to explain something, no matter
if to a real person or a bardboard cutout, a rubber duck
or your cat, you have proven that you actually understand
what you're dealing with. Requesting explanations is also
a good method to filter for "knowledge actors" (impostors
who think their expensive suit, their shiny certificate
or their gorgeous job title can compensate their lack of
knowledge).
