Often, we go by "does that value resonate" instead of having the conversation what it means. Don't run this on assumptions. Have the conversation.
Learning opens our horizon, gives us new perspectives, touches us deeply in who and how we (think we) are. It allows us to imagine a whole different future, a whole different reality altogether. It promotes understanding, not just of a subject, but also of our fellow humans. And, if we let it, in precious moments even a bit more understanding of ourselves.
