Learning by the skimp ! Because learning by the ocean is like swimming the ocean from one side to the another.
One can learn only by seeing the quantum. And that is to say to not see anything to begin with. The difference is in the fact that not seeing something is a negation. But seeing something hardly enough, less than what we even perceive, materializes in a long enough time. We are therefore not to judge what we are going to see. We can judge ignorance and agree to live with it. But we can let our ignorance recede by making suitable attempts at learning from the ocean of knowledge, tiny pebbles, thats possible only when we have prepared ourselves to realize our pedestal is uncertain. But if a stride is not taken its certainly dark. If a stride is taken the uncertainty is uncertain. We tilt the balance of our chances for knowledge and ignorance by our own action. To persevere by a little amount, and hoping to get a sizable chunk at the end of the decade is what most people who have excelled would swear.
