I wish I could learn everything about human history and the cultivation of civilizations. I want to know the effect of outside religions, ways of life, learned skills, agriculture, cultivation, art, craft, and mood had on cross cultural exchange. I want to unravel how these scenarios evolved into an entirely new society. I want to dissect how civilizations rivaled different enemies both cultural and elemental. Adoption is amazing and I what to study that in global, historical, and culinary profiles. (Yes culinary, you are what you eat, and our ancestors certainly pertain to the same rule.)
Yes, there is the internet from whom I can learn, in my pj’s with visuals and easy to find information, with a glass of wine and soft blues in the background. There is an abundant and a variety of sources from which to choose, a plethora of information, countless accounts of collaboration and rebuttals.
This is exactly why a good teacher is irreplaceable. Because it is too much information for one person to digest in a timely and attentive fashion. I want an authority on the subject, someone to explain the importance and the motivations behind these changes. It is important to know what happened and why, and also to get intimate with the influencing parties. The interpreter is the most important part to unlocking the mysteries you wish you to decode, the creating clarity in that you seek.
