This is not a typical RP question, but more about a learning process which RP is a good example of.
The primary subject matter of RP.... the hypergamous behavior of women.... is always on display, and yet most of us aren't able to internally synthesize our observations of it into useful knowledge. That knowledge pretty much has to be handed to us from an external source (reading what someone else has synthesized and written down). But once we read it, we instantly correlate it with our own observations, and we GET IT. Like "yes, I see that now."
Even in the Matrix movie, Neo has to be told by an external source what's going on. Despite being smart, he'd likely never figure it out on his own.
There are quite a few subjects in life like this, not just RP. We can't figure it out on our own, but once the information reaches us externally, (sometimes by sheer luck) we understand it.
