    This is as irritating to me who struggled through what, 17 years of schooling, 18 maybe, and got all preparation for something that has never happened yet. We find that the idea of introducing a, say a 12 year old to the culture's body of knowledge and then polishing it all and having it all finished with by 15 is kind of insulting. But there have been examples of it. Why? Because all of the rest of the stages were met fully and they entered into that completely. But, if we try to do that ahead of time, we are going to have a lot of trouble because the foundation won't be there then and then when we look for it, it's not there.
