Curd to Buttermilk

Churning curd to make buttermilk. Some thoughts, some questions, some observations.
Is there cream in buttermilk? Are there lumps? Are those lumps of curd? Why does the churner have upwards spokes? These spokes are sharp, hence they should be reversed, downwards to make buttermilk from curd. Using strainer.
More than learning to make the end product, it is the ability to decide to do something, executing in action, ability to think and try other versions of doing the same thing, the self-confidence that is earned upon achieving what they have aimed for and many more attributes that cannot be graded or standardised are some of the perks of unschooling/open learning/homeschooling.
