A View

Excerpt from the book - Shop Class as Soulcraft

A view -

"Lack of experience diminishes our power of taking a comprehensive view of the admitted facts. Hence those who dwell in intimate association with nature and its phenomena are more able to lay down principles such as to admit of a wide and coherent development; while those whom devotion to abstract discussions has rendered unobservant of facts are too ready to dogmatize on the basis of a few observations."

~ by Aristotle


So, no doubt the experience matters in understanding/creating a process; but also, the association with the nature is what is more important. Without that intimacy with my own environment while I grow, I will not know what are the facts that forms the basis of my understanding before my actions.
