Once to have his stomach pumped after he swallowed a bottle of ant poison, and another time after suffering burns on his hands after inserting a bobby pin into an electrical outlet. One’s physical environment has an undeniable influence on one’s upbringing and values and Steve was no exception. The Jobs family home in Mountain View, California, was located in what would become the heart of the Silicon Valley, and it wasn’t far from the epicenter of the beatnik rebellion and hub of hippie culture in San Francisco, all of which rubbed off on Steve.

But instead of going back home, he hung around Reed, living in abandoned dorm rooms for a year while he took up the study of philosophy and foreign cultures. Jobs met Dan Kottke at Reed, a wild-haired freak at the time, like him. Kottke saw that Jobs was an outsider and could relate with him. The two immediately bonded. Jobs lived in Kottke’s room for a while, and they read books on Eastern mysticism and discovered Buddhism together. After returning to his parent’s house in California in 1974 the reality of earning a living and minding his finances hit him.
