>>6822> can't even figure out what mentality lies behind that statement
Experience lies behind that statement, not mentality. For example. common programming tasks like creating small/medium sites or writing mobile apps for bydlo are very repetitive and uncreative tasks. You just using same concepts to write similar blocks of code with known patterns.
Did you seen nodejs community? They even use libraries for tasks like padding string with characters, you know. And they are considered programmers, have jobs and receive money. It is on level with janitor/serviceman work.
It only looks like there is much learning every day, but it is learning of tools, not concepts. Concepts (like OOP/FP/AOP) already established for years, you need to learn them once and then just practice it.
