The pursuit of knowledge is of course an independent process in the sense that real knowledge can only be put together within yourself, but at the same time each individual is bound to uncover a certain amount of synchronicity between their pursuits and the pursuits of others, and excepting the institutions(schools,careers,cultures) which require a commitment beyond specific practical concern, this synchronized territory remains illusive to the conscientious DIYer.
