On one hand, learning something is far far easier if you have a structure, an algorithm, to follow. No deviation, one path leading to the perfect outcome.
On the other hand, the journey of discovery, insights, understanding, making meaning out of unrelated bits of information, observation, intuition…. well, this is what is quite amazing about human life and being. Even more joyous and amazing is that 2 people can tread the same path of discovery, yet have very different insights, experiences, learnings.
We could, if we wish, even apply this to life. We are all born, grow up, experience hormonal surges that help us fall in love, choose to get married, have kids. Provide stability, safety, shelter for those around us. We laugh and cry. Hormones turn off and we look for other things, for fulfillment or self expression or deep spiritual experiences. And we grow old and wise. We are all so beautiful, full of joy and love (even if it is somewhat hidden), yet so very different after treading the same path, travelling the same journey.
