1.5 Learning paths that wander and then return

Urbit is new, and built to last forever. Hoon is new and unique and supports this durability through both complexity and simplicity. There are some abstractions too, and we will tackle all of this together. When we try to learn something as new and different as Hoon, we will need to go on a few journeys together to describe the parts of Hoon, and then come back to the main learning path. In some ways, this will be a bit of a challenge, because some of these concepts depend on each other to be fully understood, and you can’t learn a lot of completely new things all at the same time.

But we will try to make our paths into the unknown as bite-sized as possible so that you can build a core of understanding and then continue to challenge it with new and as-yet foreign concepts to add to the big picture.
