Talent, everyone's got it, but many simply cannot find it. I found something, was it talent or was it me? I didn't go to college and I don't waste my time by selling it to someone else. As a result I have been able to broaden my horizons beyond that of traditional boundaries put forth by structured learning regimens and cubicles. A school will not allow you to find yourself, but only force you to become an object designed by the limited collective imagination.
The only way to realize your full potential is to free yourself from the shackles of imaginary boundaries. Free yourself from the judgment of your teachers, your bosses and your peers for their mind is only strong enough to build themselves, not others. Each and every one of us must be free to discover ourselves for only then will our race realize its full potential. By placing limitations upon one another we become our own enemies because we are limiting the amount of ground our race can cover on the plane of knowledge. We must be free to explore the unexplored, free to discover what some might think undiscoverable.
No one knows everything, when you tell a person what to learn and refuse them the freedom to learn what they desire you are limiting others by your own individual amount of knowledge, which is very little. We must understand that what you consider strange others might consider normal, there is a whole universe of information out there waiting to be learned and we need the widest variety of students there is to figure it all out. Not every artist needs to learn algebra and not every mathematician needs to learn the history of art.
The bee flies not in a straight line, but haphazardly. In the end the bee accomplishes his mission and life on earth is allowed to flourish.
P.S. An example as to how the collective imagination limits itself. Say you have two people, one of them is facing west and could travel west as far as the eye can see. The other is facing east and could travel east as far as the eye can see. However, the two are tied together by a length of rope so they end up going nowhere.
