Rey does not need the books and training

Submitted by SysOp in TheLastJediMythos

Yoda was concerned in SW:ESB that Luke did not finish his training and instead choose the path of compassion for his friends and strangers, and here was the payoff -- realizing that Rey didn't even need those "not page turner" books and their training!

Yoda's point was that her life's pain, on her home world, parent loss - was her training. The brief encounter with Luke on the island was like a doctorate thesis committee. Her training was her entire lifetime of suffering.

Paradox story element, a key to mythology stories, paradoxes of interpretation. Human psychology, mind seams.

Does Yoda mean that he knows Rey took the books, has the library, or does he mean that her past experience of self-raising, like Buddha story, prepares her to be the author of new books? The paradox is this: how did the books get written, what comes first - experience or books? Who teaches the book author?
