This can be said of any process.
The point is a master can save one much time and unchanneled effort.
The master can also provide awareness of what the questions are.
The master's example provides a basis from which to grow.
Robert creates and produces the best dags I have ever seen.
If I wanted to make a daguerreotype, I would seek instruction from Robert.

Being the student has its responsibilities as well. Like doing exactly
as demonstrated until understood and mastered and only then consider
influencing with watchful consideration. A student must learn and
master technique, process, procedure and method.

A master knows when they have succeeded when their student teaches them.
