No Skill Goes to the Grave untaught; Not even witchcraft if that’s what you are into!
Learn from people, then bury them. At hobbytwin, we believe everyone wants to share, and everyone wants to pass on their knowledge to the next generation. The recipients of this skill do not necessarily have to be one’s relatives. We believe that everyone can be of value to the people and the community around them, and no skill should go to the grave untaught; not even witchcraft if that’s what you are into. We believe that in as much as we are living in a digital age today, we should really learn from our elders and safeguard their knowledge as well. We need to learn what was acceptable in society during their time, and what was not. We know that culture controls biology, but nobody in this world knows how. Not even with the advancements in technology today that we can explain how one may get sick, seek medical attention from the most qualified experts today and have access to the most advanced institutions in the world and find no cure, only to learn of a ritual from your great-grandfather, conduct the ritual and you get cured. Is it some sort of placebo effect or a mental attitude towards some of these rituals? Who knows? The truth is that these issues are still happening today, and culture is still controlling biology and no one seems to fully understand how it all works. Other than that, there are so many other skills that we can learn from our grandparents. For instance, there are lots of young people today who have never even enjoyed a simple skill like fishing or hunting yet their grandparents or their neighbours go on fishing trips all the time. The same goes for learning from our age mates on skills like baking, painting, solving the Rubik’s cube, quilting among many other skills. Not to say that you can only learn these skills if you had a grandparent, we believe that you can learn them from your neighbours, friends (including one’s age-mates), and everyone wherever you roam to in this world. If you did, you will have indeed learned something from them and you can pass thing along to your hobbytwin network. You will indeed have learned from them before burying them and/or vice versa.
