Note 807

The reason I think it's essential, when it comes to things you care about, that you teach yourself is because whatever you're trying to do - paint a picture, write a book, play some music or design a game - isn't important. What's important is you. You are the artwork. There's never been and never will be again a manifestation of life force like you. You cannot be painted. You cannot be written. You cannot be designed or played. You are just you. Now we have these tools that we've designed, not so that you can use them to imitate others, not so that you can say something grandiose or impressive, but simply so that you can express something of yourself. So take the tools we've made for you, sit with them and play with them, show us how you would use them. That's what's important.
