Unfortunately, experience alone seems not to guarantee learning.

So, in order to make the commentary even more powerful: What additional
conditions are required in order for learning to occur?

I say, in one word: curiosity. (Yes, I know, curiosity is also an outcome
of learning. So just think of the two as a reinforcing loop.)

On the other hand, is experience something that can be avoided?

I think, no.

So how do you feel about my attempt to grow your seed into:

No one learns without being curious about ones experiences.

Any further polishing?

Liebe Gruesse,
