In the beginning

Things are really boring.
The beginning only become interesting once you’ve experienced the middle and then become curious as to how this middle came to be.
Then you can go back to the beginning and it’ll be awe inspiring.

One problem we have with our American public schooling system is that they attempt to start from the beginning every class.
This is really boring and we guilt trip and bully our children into pretending to care and go through the motions like a monkey.
Then we expect them to somehow tie the beginning to the middle of existence that they experience from the moment of their birth.
Usually most people can’t find the connection and so all this beginning knowledge is just forgotten, and school becomes some “necessary evil” so that one can get a job and continue existing in the middle.
