How do you think about the character 财(cai) which means fortune?
Its first part is 贝(bei) which is "seashell" that was human's earliest banknote for trade; the remaining part 才 is "capable man".

This character warns you that money is nothing without capable master to properly deal with!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

In this sense, we can understand 材 as the following:
木 looks look a young tree with its roots deeply under the ground (一). Yes, 木 is "wood"
or "tree" or "log"); 才 should be a carpenter who is going to turn the log into furniture!

In life, there are have a lot of raw materials for you to write about that is called 素材 (basic material)!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

What you have said about this is very interesting.

But you may have a different understanding of Chinese characters

Chinese character font, not only contains the meaning of the part, as well as the part of the pronunciation

"才" is the part of the pronunciation, "才" has its basic pronunciation, the Chinese characters including "才" , mostly with the same sound. This is my teacher taught me
