And I think unfortunately a lot of education is very vaudevillian. You’ve got someone standing up there kind of lecturing at people, and they have done the same lectures 20 years in a row, and they’re not very excited about it, and that lack of enthusiasm is conveyed to the students, such that they’re not excited about it. They don’t know why they’re there. Like, “Why we are learning the stuff? We don’t even know why.”
In fact, I think a lot of things people learn — probably — there is no point learning them — because they never use them in the future.
I think in general, conventional education should be massively overhauled.
