Why is understanding what knowledge is important? Perhaps it isn’t! However, I feel as if you may benefit from knowing since seeing the true nature of knowledge provides me with much meaning. If it provides meaning for me it may also provide meaning to you as well!
What Is Knowledge?
Let’s say you just moved to a new town. You don’t know anything about it but your friend shows you around once you get settled in. Perhaps you wrote down the addresses of certain businesses and you entered the phone numbers of certain people. Most of us consider this as obtaining knowledge, getting to know the town and the people within.
You may need a map or a GPS to get to the grocery store at first, but over time you’ll develop muscle memory and you’ll just be able to go! But what’s happening when you’re memorizing a route from the store?
For me, I see the route in my mind. I picture the way to get there because I’ve seen it with my physical eyes before, and usually this picture is accompanied by a light feeling.
In fact, this happens quite often – if I read something I can create a concept in my mind that is the visual representation of the words. Then, I can connect this concept with other concepts, and if I connect enough concepts with one another, in the correct fashion, I’ll acquire understanding, and I can even know that I understand!
This is what’s so important to share – you can create structures made of metaphysical light in your mind, even to mimic physical places. You can also create visions, and these visions can be drawn onto a canvas. You can receive knowledge from somebody else and check it against your memory bank to see if it’s accurate, or to add it to what you already understand. And most of all it feels pleasant to do this, especially if I want to find the truth in any given situation!
Proper knowledge is a great way to filter your actions; when you move to a new town you won’t know where to go until you acquire the proper knowledge, and the same applies on a grander scale. If you don’t have the proper knowledge for any particular situation, you won’t know which action is best to take, or how to best take the actions that are best to take.
And lastly, intellectual enlightenment. Intellectual enlightenment is a feeling right in the middle of your head, and it appears once you’ve gathered all of the knowledge you urge yourself to know or after you open your mind and take psychedelic substances. People refer to this as “opening your 3rd eye” and it’s, truly, what all knowledge seekers seek. They want the feeling of intellectual enlightenment, or as I call it, the “pinnacle of knowledge.”
Is This Simply My Belief?
I know that my friends can do the same thing I’ve described above. In fact, some of them can even do more! It’s an objective fact that enough knowledge can lead to intellectual enlightenment, it’s an objective fact that knowledge helps to take proper action, and I know for sure that other people can create and connect concepts in their mind!
I arrive at these conclusions through basic logic; let’s say you’re a child who’s lost in the city. You have the brilliance of a child so someone may pick you up and help take you to your parents, but the person who picks you up must have the knowledge of where to go and who to talk to in order to effectively do this.
Also, the fact that other people can create concepts and connect them in their mind to create an understanding of the world!
Normally I’d question whether or not anything metaphysical is simply my own belief. For example, if I say “you need to buckle up because it’s going to get rough” that’s a belief, a perception on my part. However, I’ve been observing the nature of knowledge for a long time, and I’m fairly certain that what I have stated is objective fact. You can test it for yourself!
All in all, knowing what knowledge is and what it can do can be very helpful for your well-being! Once we understand these things we can have an easier time obtaining and retaining intelligence, and intellectual enlightenment.
