I kind of learned that it's okay to steal as an artist a while ago, but it felt very weird especially if it was code, even if I changed a few lines to make it unique. I think I felt invalid since I didn't know how the maths worked underneath it all, but when I'm drawing, do I have to understand how exactly the graphite shears and leaves a trace on the bumpy surface of the paper fibres? Do I have to know the chemistry that gives paint its colour? 
I guess that this taught me that I can't understand everything in the universe, but I could still make things that were wonderful despite that, and maybe because of that fact.
