Since the olden days we’ve had Gurus where young people went to learn from them.

Transferring skills from an experienced person to an unskilled person is the very fabric of the human race that keeps us together.
Before we invented written language and printed books, knowledge and experience was transferred from one generation to another using stories.
During the tribal times where groups of 100-500 people lived in forests, the elders of the tribe would tell stories to the younger generation and they would pass on moral values.
Then there were people who hunted, gathered, people who grew crops, people who did carpentry and people who built huts. In every category, the expert will teach the novice.
People realized that sometimes you have to pass on information which transcends time. The trainer cannot always be present in flesh and blood and hence they started painting inside cave walls.
