taught from childhood

If I’m taught from childhood what traditional religion is, will it stop me from responding to the real thing when it I see it? Does jumping off of a normal pathway take some insight?

When the real appears can I respond?
Is the answer no because I’m addicted to me — the substitute?

To see or be the real must I somehow let rest what I know already?
Does tradition continually kill the present like a jealous older sibling?
