If I had only known what I know today, I would have cut that 20 let's say by 10-15 years less and arrive with the same result. I teach beginners what I know and their learning curve is very fast.
+0.9 err... +1
I think its definitely a window into understanding and insights. Factoring in the time to learn physics and then translating/integrating it into the art (at least internally) is what takes the time though, I think maybe not a shortcut for everyone?
Yes, here's hoping it helps pass on the art that little bit quicker
best and lovely post OP and thoughtful dialogue by all,
