My parents and teachers could not know the future. Yet they did teach me some very good lessons.
How to read, how to find my way in texts. (That was almost all I needed to use my first computer)
How to find sources of knowledge, use catalogs, libraries, how to ask questions.
How to learn to change my knowledge and skills,
How to care for other people,
How to cope with uncertainty, problems, questions.
How to be a human.
How to find a way into the unknown future.
And most of the time they did not know they were teaching. And they never knew they were training a nomad.
