This question popped into my head pretty often nowadays as i’m undergoing some long study/learning sessions.

When I was little I used to daydream about have the special ability to know everything there is to know about a subject just by touching a book. I wonder if that’s possible.

Why do we need to study so much to achieve something? Why can’t we just be born with the knowledge and not struggle so much our whole life to keep learning? What’s the purpose of all the hard work?

What do you think?
