Default Re: Tia's age

People who are shelled from a very young age apparently don't need any sleep at all. Even Tia had only 3 hours of DeepSleep a night when she graduated. So, with accelerated brain development (Helva remembered her first birthday), no sleep, no free time, they're basically in school 24/7/365. Makes sense to let them graduate ASAP, since they'll spend a lot more time in school than any mobile humans do, counting free time, time for sleep and weekends/vacations. The early life of brains is very boring.
