It is said that the only way to learn a foreign language, or even one’s own mother language, is to immerse oneself in it. The sounds, grammatical patterns and structures, the vocabulary, body and other non-verbal communication, etc. they all are learned through a constant stream of exposure, absorption, and eventual acquisition.
Use this approach for whatever subject captures your interest, your imagination, your inspiration, and motivation. Immerse yourself in all its complexity, its angles, its variations, its trending adaptations, its history, its foundation, its depth. The more you bathe in its essence, the more capable you will be at steering within it, and finding your own path within or beyond its current boundaries.
